Do you know why juggling is so impressive? It's because most of us can't do it. As entertaining and "fun" as the skill may seem, it takes a lot coordination, focus, and diligence. Not everyone has those attributes, and consequently, not everyone can juggle. So when you have people like B'ara, who have their hands full with being an artist and operating their own record label, I obtain an automatic level of respect for them.
In 2019, B'ara started his Record Label, F1 Ent LLC (Family First Entertainment LLC). He proceeded to sign himself to F1 Ent that year in July. Though, that is not where his path began. He started his musical journey at the age of 8, winning several talent shows in the arenas of Rap/Gospel. B'ara is not pigeonholed to any specific genre either. He still writes music across the fields of Rap, RnB, Blues, Gospel, and Reggae.
When you listen to B'ara's latest project titled S.O.O.N (Something Out of Nothing) hosted by DJ Ya Boy Earl, you get a glimpse of just how creative and passionate this guy is. Tracks like “Now,” “Running,” and “Old Me” show a true fire and passion in this dude’s belly, and it’s all done on the strength of his abilities and self induced ambition.
“Running a label and being an artist myself is one of the most difficult tasks I've had to overcome thus far. Trying to have things run on the same accord, as well as juggle with other businesses. Is the biggest challenge I've ever endured. Especially when I'm a One Man Army. And working on building my team from scratch. Without a team it's impossible to win the championship. But it's all worth it, at the end of the day. Lots of hard work, learning, long hours, and no sleep.”
You can learn a thing or two about grit if you follow this man's career. His ideologies do not only relate to music, but striving as a holistic concept. We wish him the best here at SwanoDown, nothing but respect. Be sure to check out his website which is currently under construction, but will be launching soon.
