Delawness hopes to rise with Fall

Recording and visual artist Delawness says his latest project Fall has captured who he is at heart.

"Fall is special song. It really captures my state of my mind and projects; my raw thoughts as to where I was mentally. It was a motivator since it sets the platform as a personal mantra in my journey. It's was really pivotal to the next steps I would take in my career as an artiste. I learned a lot while working on the record," he told the Jamaica Observer.

The Emotica Republic production was released on January 15. It also features Atlanta-based artiste Rudy Walker.

Delawness, whose given name is Lawrence L Deacon, is multifaceted and also functions as a graphic designer, illustrator, and producer. He is known for his logo designs, album covers, poster design, and illustration for high-profile artistes and brands such as Fabrice Gautier, Coco Jones, TiMe22, Koffee, Chronixx, TRACKDILLA, Azizzi Romeo, Warrior King, Garnet Silk Jr, Dre Tosh, and FreeboyzNation.

Delawness has also been commissioned to do projects for major Jamaican companies such as Kingston Freeport Terminal Limited and Factories Corporations Jamaica. He has also collaborated with digital media company Carib Voxx on Boyante on assignments for iPhone, Samsung, and Android.

In the meantime, he says his musical project has been reaping the rewards that he had hoped.

"The feedback on my project has been good, most of all. Ever since I started music, I continue to hear 'your music is different.' When I further enquire into what is meant by different, I hear 'it's different in a good way, international music that would do good abroad or it's unorthodox,' which is good," he explained.

Previous releases include Introspeq featuring Yasi B and CMPLCXTNS featuring Rudy Walker and Crossroadz

When it comes to balancing music from designing, Delawness says it's a no-brainer.

"It's pretty simple. I am very good at project management and compartmentalisation of my task daily. I tend to not overwork myself and also develop a project plan which basically structures the part of the project and treat each task on a basis of priority," he said.
