Queer Next Up is a series originally posted to our Instagram. We feature smaller queer artists who we think deserve your love, support, and dedication.
D’Andre Adonis (he/him) is a recording artist. With a mesh of R&B, Hip Hop and Pop with a sound that still has its own character, D’Andre Adonis has one goal: to make you feel something when you listen to his music. Based in his hometown of Chicago, IL he takes pride in his city and loves to grow with his peers.
What is your earliest memory of wanting to be an artist?
Hearing Daniel Caesar’s album Freudian, I immediately thought “I want to make music like this.”
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I’ve almost quit music and art so many times and never did.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
You are stronger than you think you are.
What does your work mean to you?
My work is my form of expression.
Why do you create art?
To put out work that I would want to hear or see.
What have you learned about yourself though the artistic process?
That you can really grow in life and it will translate into what you create over time.
Can you give us a sneak peek of what’s to come?
R&B project is officially in the works!
