Bellus Magazine (BM): What was it like getting to be apart of Earth to Echo?
Astro: Great. It was my first role in a movie and it was as a lead, so that was dope.
BM: How long have you been acting?
Astro: I got my first role about a month after I left X Factor. It was as a guest star in Person of Interest.
BM: You have an album coming out soon, please tell about your writing process for this new project.
Astro: I wrote most of the lyrics in my head. I used to write all my lyrics on paper, but I stopped. The lyrics flow more freely when their in my head.
BM: We love Red Band Society! What’s it like getting to work on that show?
Astro: Great. The cast and crew are very cool. Sometimes it feels like I’m in school. I hang out with kids my age and we work together.
BM: What’s next for you?
Astro: I just released my album Computer Era on iTunes. And I’m launching my clothing line Grade A Tribe Clothing in early 2015.
BM: What’s the best place your fans can stay up to date on your journey?
