PROFILE: R&B Artists Two Out Of Three
by Cyrus Webb
From the very beginning they were destined to be unique. Kyle and Cody Mead are twin brothers in a set of triplets that are making their mark not just because what they look like, but because of what they sound like. At the age of twenty-one they are not just singer/songwriters but are living their dreams as R&B artists following their dreams and seeing results.
Managed by their father Wayne, the two are signed to the TMG label and are excited about all of the great feedback they are receiving about their music but also the example they are setting for so many other young people.
They sat down exclusively with me to discuss their beginnings, their drive and why Two Out Of Three is here to stay.
When did this all begin for you two?
K.M.: We were really young, like nine years old. Both of us have always liked to sing. Around the age of 10 we started entering competitions and were hooked It's really just taken off from there. The response just kept us going, inspiring us to move forward.
How does it feel to be following your dreams the way that you are?
C.M.: It's really a blessing. I feel like we are blessed, because alot of people don't get the opportunity to do what we are doing. That's why we both are giving it our all. There really is no better feeling in the world.
How do you carve out individual time for yourself? It has to be difficult since you are together so much writing and performing.
K.M.: I do write by myself, too. Though we sound good together we are different, so we do work on our own things as well.
C.M.: When we are working together we are Two Out Of Three, but we do things separately as well. I have my own family, so I do things with them like go to the park, watching sports,etc. We do have our own lives even though we do spend so much of our time together.
What do you hope people take away from your music?
C.M.: I want them to feel the love, energy and freedom that we project. This is our way of talking to people and telling them how we feel.
K.M.: I agree with Cody. I love energy, and we want others to know how we feel. Once you hear us you will know that we have our own style. We are not like everyone else.
You are getting a taste of success right now, but what are your other goals?
K.M.: Our goals include for the world to hear us. I want our music to be available in store everywhere. We just got a marketing and distribution contract TMG. This is going to help us continue in the right direction.
C.M.: I just want us to be successful. Music is my life, and I want it to be my livelihood, my way of supporting my family. I also want to continue to help and bless others,too.
Thanks to both of you for allowing me to share with our readers your story. Any advice you have for those reading this conversation and need some encouragement in their own lives?
K. M.: Never give up. Keep pushing. If anyone tries to slow you down, get away from them. What's in your heart is in your mind and that is what you should listen to. Whatever you are trying to accomplish in your own life don't ever stop. Nothing's impossible.
C.M.: That goes for me, too. No matter how you were raised, do what you love to do. Go with your heart. If people inspire you, stay around those people. If you give up now you'll never know what you could accomplish.
