We had the good fortune of connecting with Luis (Weecho) Alaniz and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Luis (Weecho), what role has risk played in your life or career?
Like the saying goes, “without risk there’s no reward” and what is more rewarding than being able to create something that is so timeless. We find ourselves chasing these big dreams that we get so carried away and lose track of time but almost in a way where we have to manage it wisely. So why not do the most of what we can with the time we have? Music lives forever. That’s what’s so great about it. It’s a way for us artists to express ourselves. I’m sure many can relate when I say music understands me. I used to admire the idea of being an artist, musician I’d say. Somehow I always knew i wanted to do this, it’s for me. 2018 was the year that changed it all for me. I released my first single “she keeps on calling me baby” and also debuted on 98.5 blazin FM. I loved the reaction and momentum it got me. It was a great feeling. It lead me to opening up for artists like Reverie and Caskey. Although I’m nowhere where I want to be yet, it’s all a work in process. Nothing ever comes easy but if we work for what we want we will achieve it soon or later as long as you stick to it.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Weecho is the name KOABD is the brand. Stand for Kind Of A Big Deal. 2018 was the year that made me want this lifestyle. I released my first single that debuted on 98.5 blazin FM. I instantly fell in love with the whole music artist idea although I’ve always said “one day I’m going to be a rapper” it’s surreal now that I do make music and have a big name artist feature. I grew up listening to Lil Cuete and now that I have a song with him it’s a great feeling. That’s just a milestone. I have many more goals to accomplish. I soon will be writing hit songs for big name artists. I’m learning as I grow. We all start somewhere. I have clothing brand ideas, movies, books and other things I’m waiting to do. I just want to master my craft first before I branch off. I’m enjoying every bit of it while I can. I like moving according. Im okay with getting there in God’s rhythm.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We would start off in Denver. It’s the city. There’s so much happening and to do. Museums, bars, parks, malls. It’s a great vibe overall. There are also springs witch is a little more mellow. A lot of places to hike like sceneries and overlooks. Manitou springs for some local shopping. There’s the cliff dwelling, pikes peak, lakes, garden of the gods. There’s many places to see and you can never go wrong with 420 friendly bars and places. So it’s definitely very diverse. There’s a little bit of everything for everyone.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I never really had a mentor or such inspiration like that. It’s mostly been a self taught journey. Not that I wouldn’t want support like that, it’s just hard to come by people with a vision somewhat like mines.
