Where are we talking from today?
Today I am located in Burbank, California but I grew up on the south side of New Jersey right outside the city of Philadelphia.
Where did you get your artist’s name from?
My artist name (Dante Juhkel) is my first and middle name, to be honest. My full name is Dante “Jaquel” Thompson, but the pronunciation of my first and middle name (DAHN-tay JUH-Kel) was always difficult for teachers, principals, and friends when forced to read my name out loud. I figured the world will get used to it when they hear my name and see it on Tv, Spotify, iTunes, commercials, etc.
Music-wise what are you working on right now? Are you currently promoting a single or album?
Right now, I’m working on my solo ep entitled “Disclaimer”. The first single “M.I.N.E” is out on all streaming platforms and features vocalist “Jamarius” from Los Angeles. During the process of my solo ep I am also working as a producer and songwriter for pop singer “Madeline Rosene”. We are promoting her single “Blew” that I produced and I’m featuring on as an artist.
As a musician, what is your definition of success?
As a musician my definition of success would be making an impact with my music on a universal scale.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
My idea of perfect happiness is peace within the mind, body and soul.
