Spotlight Interview with Craymo


A new release from Craymo brings a refreshing and tasteful message that takes on the form of reggae pop and a dance undertone that drives the vibe into the sunset.


"One Love One World (We Are One) is a powerful song that talks of peace and harmony. Helping each other reach what we can really be if we try.


This is a wonderfully freeing song that not only makes you want to dance, but also makes you want to reach out and be a friend, a song, a sister, a brother, and more.


The message is crystal clear, and the song gives it a beautiful format to reach people.


This is a great time for this song and there's nothing better than music to get this message across.


The beat is bright and warm with a reggaetón soundscape, and the vocals really have a great attitude and melodies that let the chorus strive.


This is considered the Freedom Mix of the track and it really has a naturally colorful and vibrant feel to it.


Craymo is known for releasing tracks with messages, both as metaphors, and straight forward.


The songs let love fly free and the songs bounce and groove hard.


The coolest thing about Craymo is the character he portrays and the fact that if you like one song, you're bound to like plenty more.


With the release of this single, we wanted to touch base with Craymo and talk shop.


Here's what happened.


RAG: Okay so let's start with "One Love One World". This single has a great summer pop feel to it Where did this track come from? “This song was written one night when I was homeless living in my car in 1993. I was listening to the radio (NPR) and hearing stories of the horrible treatment of women, children and LGBTQ people in other parts of the world. It made me realize that my life wasn’t so bad in comparison. The song was a message of hope that just came to me that night.” RAG: I'm hearing some great styles on this release. Who are some of your biggest musical influences? “The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Elton John” RAG: Who did you collaborate with for this? How did you find the band to perform the song? “When the events of September 11 happened, I went to my songwriting friend Brandon Jarrett and said we need to record this song to help people heal. He produced the track, played all the instruments and sang backup vocals.” RAG: So how did this all begin for you really? When did you fall in love with making music? “I think I came out of the womb singing! I remember singing into my Mom’s hairbrush at 3 years old to a Beatles record, I was hooked! I am always singing and writing songs, it’s my therapy in life!” RAG: What's next for you as an artist? “I would love to go on tour. I currently am focusing on getting more sync placements in TV and films.” RAG: What inspires you to write a song? “Everything really, relationships, life events, I always have a song in my head. It all seems to channel through me cosmically from another place.” RAG: What are you doing when you're NOT working on music? “I am a waiter and work at Walt Disney World and I am also a professional actor working in commercial and indie films.” RAG: Who are you listening to right now? “I love Harry Styles, Mika, Lizzo, Fitz and the Tantrums.” RAG: Are you doing live performances? “Since COVID happened I have not been performing but looking to get back out there. I have mainly been focusing on writing and recording.” RAG: This single seems like a big undertaking. What kind of advice might you have for other up and coming artists out there? “Just keep following your dreams, believe in yourself and have fun doing it. Your passion will come through in your music. Sing about things that are important to you. People will start to take notice.” RAG: Before we go, what would you like to say to fans of the music?
