What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.
I started making music at a young age. I come from a family of musicians so it was just the natural path. My father was a musician and honestly music was it for me at a pretty young age. Started writing music around age 13…although terrible:) I started more of an acoustic folk writer and as my songwriting matured I began to focus more on electronic pop music.
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
Thick was thought of while listening to people use the word. It is one of those words that has been repurposed as a way of praising women but there’s a whole culture involved. I feel the repurposed THICK is an attitude with a little fashion and make-up tutorials sprinkled in. So yea…I wrote a fun song about it.
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
I listen to a lot of different things bit for this song I was heavily influenced by Gospel music. The original rough cut was just some jazzy thick piano chords and lyrics. I worked with a friend of mine, KELSON CAMP on the track. He’s known for his hip-hop/R&B production working with artist like WALE. He really brought that track to life with such an aggressive instrumental track. Always good to have friends who are geniuses!
In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?
I mean I’m probably not the person to ask. I mean ofcourse I feel I seperate myself. My voice is mine…hopefully it’s unique. I dont really set out to write a hit poo track. I just write songs I want to listen to and hopefully others will to.
Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…
The 1975 any album, Arvo Part choral collection, Def Leppard Hysteria
Vanilla Skies, Interstellar, Debbie does dallas.
Encyclopedia: Letter F , 1984 Orwell, maybe some Ezra Pound or Dylan Thomas?
Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
Live performance is always a blast…I mean you get to pretend you’re a rockstar…the studio is a little bit more work…both are great but just two different animals.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
I’ve only released 5 tracks so the sample size is small. My second release Hearts Stop is pretty unique because it is basically a prog rock tune just in 3:30 minutes and a big hook. A few key changes…the opening is a fun intro that starts in Bb Major or if you’re getting critical in g minor and then drastically shifts to a D major chord in the key of G major. Holy Water lyrically is a proud moment for me. Just beautiful words. Just sophistication.
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
I have a few tracks already mixed and mastered and ready to go. Just need to wrap up a few things before they drop.
Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
