Enjoying Life with E.N Young and The Influence of Cannabis in Music
By: Bill Shehan
Bill: Is your music influenced by cannabis?
E.N Young: Yes, my music is influenced by cannabis. Cannabis helps me focus on the positive energy in my life. So, when I write or play music, that positive energy shines through.
Bill: Do you medicate daily?
E.N: Oh ya, I especially need it at the end of a long day. Cannabis helps me focus on what is important and helps me to not sweat the small things. It also helps me get creative. I love that. I’m very grateful for the herbs.
Bill: What is your favorite among joints, blunts, bong, pipe, dab, or edibles?
E.N: I love a clean snapper out of a bong. The kind of hit you pull through and it smacks the bottom of the bong. I’ve been all over the country tons of times and I think clearing a single snapper is a culture here on the west coast. Others like big party bowls. That’s nice too. But nothing like a west coast snapper through a nice glass on glass bong!
Bill: Do you prefer Indica, Sativa, or Ruderalis?
E.N: Some heavyweight herbalists I know like mostly indicas because they need it to be strong to feel it. But I’m more of a varied user. I like sativa for daytime creative active vibes and indica or hybrid for meditation and relaxation at night.
Bill: You played an awesome show at Mandalay Bay with Tribal Seeds. How do you like performing in Vegas?
E.N: Vegas is dope…always good vibes!! I sense a big blend of cultures in Las Vegas. All walks of life and different people coming together. So I really feel that when jammin. People are always killer in vegas! Can’t wait till the next show!
Bill: We are featuring you on the cover, and for the first time Vegas Cannabis Magazine is having a “Jam Sesh” with our cover artist. I want to personally thank you for making that happen. Do you have any requests for the party?
E.N: Thanks a lot for including me in Vegas Cannabis Magazine. And thank you for supporting cannabis and being an activist. We need you. As far as the party I’m easy. If I could take a night or two in vegas chilling with friends and reasoning over a spliff I’m happy.
Bill: Tell us about your recent solo album, “Call On Me.” Do you have a song that means more to you than the others?
E.N: This album “Call on Me” I’m very proud of. I enjoyed the process of writing and recording it. Cannabis was my sidekick during it. A lot of the songs are positive thoughts about finding a fulfilled life and having faith that our path is created for us. I had fun. Even added a funny skit in the middle that’s based on real interviews I do. Haha.
Bill: Tell us about your record label.
E.N: Roots Musician Records is my label that focuses on spreading positivity and love through music. A lot of the albums released I produced which I really enjoy doing. I’ve been working in music studios since I was 17 so I have a lot of experience producing, mixing, and mastering. I work out of my space Imperial Sound Recording Studio. Check all the music out at RootsMusician.com
Bill: Tell us about the artists you are collaborating with.
E.N: I have produced for and collaborated with Rebelution, Tribal Seeds, Jus Goodie, Gonzo, Hirie, Leilani Wolfgramm, Inna Vision, J Boog, Iration, Slightly Stoopid, Stick Figure, Martin Campbell, Mystic Roots, Stranger, Wakane, Rebecca Arscott, Louie Castle, Tatanka, Thrive, Father Psalms, and many more.
Bill: Where do you get your passion?
E.N: I gain influence from the universe and the overpowering feeling that everything is meant to be.
Bill: You are such a friendly, personable artist. For your fans, tell us your secret to peace and happiness.
E.N: Happiness is a choice. Live good. Treat others the way you want to be treated. And love yourself and others.
Bill: Thanks E.N. We can’t wait to burn with you in a couple weeks.
E.N: Ahhhh bro can’t wait! I’m really stoked to be involved with the cannabis community in Vegas and around the world. Let cannabis be free!! Stay Irie & Enjoy Life
