Solomon - Advocate Magazine

I hate I ever mentioned myself as being gay...

After making national headlines on New York Daily News, BET and for blasting Eminem’s usage of gay slurs, the very personal Solomon has opened up in a very intimate article written for Advocate Magazine. The article sheds light on Solomon’s struggles with a mother on drugs, a father in prison and his ongoing trust issues after a 2011 arrest following his EP, The Love Rocker Project.


Also this month Solomon sat down with DNA Magazine and Evoke Magazine for a one on one interview. The openly gay artist spoke with DNA about religion, his upbringing and more. Telling DNA Magazine that due to his very religious Baptist background, being gay was an issue with his father. But with time eventually his father, “opened his heart and mind.”


In support of his upcoming EP Le Garçon, Solomon told Evoke Magazine’s Luis Gonzalez that he actually regrets being so open about his sexuality. He tells Evoke, “To be honest, I hate I ever mentioned myself as being gay because then you’re a ‘gay artist’ and a lot of gay artists are horrible. They were just decent looking guys who tried to be a Britney or a Gaga, and made it hard for others to be seen as artistic,” Solomon says. “It doesn’t define my music. My life defines my music and I define my life.”

With his current lead single “Swim No More” off Le Garçon, pleasing fans and critics, Solomon is excited to share his latest EP scheduled for a late January 2014 release. Le Garçon will be available in two versions. A standard version available worldwide for free download, as well as a deluxe version available two weeks prior exclusively on iTunes. The deluxe version will not only contain new music, but bonus tracks, a hidden song, poems, interludes and a digital booklet as well.
