E Rawq rocks in Benson
July 7th, 2011
Omaha, NE – One local artist is staying true to his roots, by doing exactly what he loves – and thatâ€™s writing, and playing music.
E Rawq has been playing music since he was 15 years old and now, heâ€™s come to pivotal point in his young career. If you ask him, heâ€™ll tell you that Omaha is not an easy music market to break into. It takes time and patience. At the end of the day, itâ€™s his influences and the type of drive that only a musician can possess that keeps him going.
â€œMusic is justâ€¦ what I love to do. Itâ€™s what I do best,” he said. “Andâ€¦ the feeling that I get when I hear my favorite artist, when I hear my favorite songâ€¦.the inspiration or the good feeling that it gives to me, just to be able to give that to other people is just so amazing. I think thatâ€™s what keeps me on the path that Iâ€™m on.â€
Most of his influences are derived from the musicians that have mastered R&B and Pop, two musical genres that E Rawq has worked to make his mark in.
â€œMy biggest inspiration musically? I pull from a lot of artists: Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Prince.â€
E Rawq will be performing Saturday, July 9th at 11 pm at the Pizza Shoppe Collective in Benson. And although he is not new to playing in front of a live audience, E Rawq said this show will be unlike any of his previous ones.
â€œIâ€™m going to have background dancers as well as background singers, so itâ€™s going to be a really unique show,â€ he said.
