We had the good fortune of connecting with Kalvin Sheesh and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kalvin, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
I see my work now as a way to keep my balance. Without art we are left to become a balance for life around us instead of life being the balance that drives the art forward. I have accumulated overtime a very systematic routine, which allows me to stay focused on what I want, but also be aware of life and it’s hardships around me. We all face the challenge of a balanced lifestyle especially when leaning towards songwriting or performing.. Music is the scale on one side for me. Reality is on the other side. I use both to drive my writing forwar. Reaching to those who may not be able to balance both.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
The main lesson I have learned and I’ll keep it short. Focus on yourself in the opportunities you can bring to your own table. With that said, recognize that in order to make it, you need a team and everybody must eat surround yourself with those who are solely focused on your mission along with others they are assisting. Being humble in general will get you so much further no matter how talented you pretend to be.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The city of Dallas has so much to offer. I won’t give too many suggestions because I like to stay in my own bubble. I’m general if you go downtown you will find what you are looking for. For my artist peeps preferably Deep Ellum area.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I can’t say there is no one else who helped me along the way, but I will say I’m one of the very few who has managed their own career and made it as far as I have today. I would like to thank all of those who have helped me on my musical journey. Producers, engineers, songwriters, and God, who gave me all the knowledge to continue writing music that resonates
