Recording artist/ actor Antonio Drake sees his debut EP as the perfect opportunity to share some major ‘keys’ of life with his audience.

Titled ‘Dreams & Disractionz’, and still very much in its production phase, Antonio strongly feels that it is his own way of fulfilling God’s work.
“The biggest thing I've been working on right now is my debut EP entitled Dreams & Disractionz. The stories, the concepts, every element of it has been apart of my life for years and I believe God has given me a gift and a platform in order to share it with others. There are keys in the EP, keys I was given to help navigate my way through and around distractions to ultimately get closer to my dreams. And I intend to help others who listen to my music by giving them the keys that will empower them to do the same.
“In the meantime, I am releasing short clip videos on Youtube and some snippets on Instagram of my project One Sixteen. One Sixteen is a series of videos compiled of different topics where I perform one sixteen bar verses. It also signifies Romans 1:16 that boldly states "I am unashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. For it is the power of God at work, savings everyone who believes.." Follow me on all my social media platforms to stay tuned to those. They are very impactful”, he said. 

‘Impactful’ seems to be the key word when it comes to Antonio’s work. For him it is all about how best he can touch, not only the lives of those around him but those who listen to his music as well.
“As of now my focus is on releasing my first major body of work via the Ep, seeking and acquiring a partnering company or record label to broaden the platform and impact more lives with the music. From there the longer-term goals though not limited to, would consist of creating a body of artwork that will transcend time, and that will affect people's lives for the better for generations to come.
“Many things drive me to do what I do every day. First is the dream, we all have one, and if you think you don't, you do.. you just have to rediscover it. In the words of Dr. Eric Thomas, "I don't need no alarm clock, my passion wakes me up every single morning." I'm also driven by the thought of my family. Not just for their essential needs but for the protection and grandeur of our legacy. I'm driven by the fact I must be the leader, the role model, the example my wife is proud to stand beside and that my children are able and desire to mirror. And lastly, I'm driven by fear. Fear of dying or running out of time before releasing everything God has placed inside of me. I wake up every day seeking to release, to give, to share, that which He has entrusted to me”, he said. 

The God-fearing musician/actor, remains forever the ‘humble servant’ of The Almighty and is looking forward to creating more and more highlights as his career progresses.
“When you're in an industry you've been created for, you find so many beautiful moments as well as challenging ones. The challenging ones provide an opportunity to learn and grow, and those moments at your peak have a way of reminding you to remain humble, to be grateful, to enjoy the moment but continue to press towards. Every time I'm giving an opportunity to share my gift is a highlighted of my life, and I have many more to come, God willing.
“As of today most of the projects that stick out to me are the ones I've done in intimate settings. The times I've been blessed to perform at the Dallas Car Show, on 97.9 the beat, or in front of major artist have all been amazing experiences and ones I look forward to creating more of. But the times that were most notable happens to be the ones that were more intimate and most impactful”, said Antonio.
