Tacoma, WA (PRWEB) February 23, 2016
It is rare that you come across a hip hop artist that is already a Grammy nominated, platinum songwriter before they hit the national scene as an artist. These are the accolades Tacoma’s Clemm Rishad has already earned as half of the writing and production team Writers Block.
Today Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes announces the release of “What A Feeling”, the latest single by Tacoma Hip-Hop artist Clemm Rishad. The single features production by Grammy award winning producer Streetrunner. It is currently available for streaming and download at the Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes website.
Grammy Nominated, Multi Platinum songwriter Clemm Rishad has teamed up with 2-time Grammy Award winning Producer STREETRUNNER for collaboration "What A Feeling". The Tacoma, Washington native is best known for co-writing Nicki Minaj's chart topping single "Fly", as well as penning songs with Jason Derulo, Rihanna and many other industry veterans. Clemm's work with established artists in the music business has helped paved the way for crafting his own sound and music. Clemm Rishad is ready to make his presence known in the music scene as a self made multi-faceted artist with a line up of new music he will be releasing with super producer STREETRUNNER.
“Being a songwriter has really taught me how to think outside the of box, and I’ve been able to incorporate that into my own material, mixing it in with what I already do,” says Rishad. “Being signed as a writer to Beluga Heights and J.R Rotem has helped me format my music differently at times, and always has me thinking about how to make great songs with strong hooks.”
Long before Rishad became a writer or an artist, he was the son of a pastor growing up in Tacoma. With his father’s devotion to religion, and a brother who was big in the streets, Rishad grew up learning about two very different worlds and need and outlet for his thoughts.
“I had been writing poetry as a way to express myself, which I wasn’t great at otherwise. Eventually that spilled over into music for me, as a way to vent and get things out,” explains Rishad. “My brother was already working on music, and really helped to bring me along as an artist.”
Soon enough these collaborations lead to Rishad’s first release Image of Me, which was followed by Close Your Eyes and See.
Now as Rishad steps out as an artist on a larger level, he is poised to add to his growing success in music.
“I want my music to move the people and would like to be seen as a leader and a musician and not someone that is going to fall into any type of specific category,” says Rishad.
Now as Rishad gears up for the release of his new project The Beginning, he is asking his growing fan base to join him on the adventure by launching an interactive campaign Journey To The Beginning that will allow fans to participate in designing the direction of Rishad’s career.
Clemm Rishad is currently seeking press opportunities, interviews, features, and more. He can be reached through his official Twitter page.
