MJ: Where are you from and how was it growing up there? Maurice: I’m Originally from ST. Thomas U.S Virgin Islands and I had a great childhood. I didn’t have anything else to compare it to but I would say that while most kids grew up glued to the TV or video games I mostly enjoyed the outdoors. We climbed Mango Trees and went to the Beach constantly so nature was a big part of my childhood experience. MJ: What do you like least/most about the Entertainment Industry? Maurice: The Uncertainty and Possibility, meaning the uncertainty that this Dream that you’re chasing may never come true and the Possibility that at any moment your Dream may become a Reality. MJ: If you were to open up for an artist who would it be and why? Maurice: I would open up for Rihanna because our sound is very similar. MJ: How do you respond to the backup plan question? Maurice: Well my backup plan still derives from my ultimate goal which is to make music. I’m also a songwriter so if just being a song-writer is what Gods ultimate plan is for me I will accept it gracefully. MJ: If you were to choose one word, which emotion more than any other drives you to stay in this tough business? Maurice: PASSION. MJ: Why did you name your EP “Ricochet”? Maurice: Ricochet is a song that’s on the actual EP and I felt that it describes my journey through LIFE. If you really focus in on the words you may also be able to relate to this message. MJ: Any Shouts Outs? Maurice: My mom, Thank you for being my biggest Cheerleader and I LOVE YOU!
