Q: First of all we want to say welcome to you.
Ans: Thanks! It’s great to be interviewed
Q: How did you come into music industry?
Ans: Someone I love dearly broke my heart some time ago. I wrote a song about her and was singing it while playing my guitar when my roommate told me it sounded great. He pushed me to focus on a musical project to distract myself from my heartbreak. Six months later, I had finished a full album.
Q: Who was your inspiration for music?
Ans: In the beginning, Jaden Smith was my main inspiration, but I started trailing off and started to develop my own style as I wrote more and more songs. As for content, every song I’ve ever written has something to do with her.
Q: What is the name of your debut song?
Ans: I don’t have a debut song, but I do have a debut album! It will be released later this summer. Keep an eye out!
Q: Say something about your musical journey?
Ans: It’s been a wild ride. I’ve cut more songs than I even have on the album. And I’ve needed tremendous amounts of help, from sound designers to producers to engineers. But I’ve also learned to do a lot of those tasks on my own along the way. My only regret is the number of people I hired to help me who would constantly disappoint me. But in any business venture, you do have to be willing to lose money to make it.
Q: Who helped you most in your journey?
Ans: My friends. I won’t call out their names — I’m saving that for a later occasion — but they provided all the emotional support I needed while making this album.
7. Another one of my good friends. Again, I won’t give any names — but he gave me all the advice I needed for every song I sent his way. His advice shaped the way most of the songs on the album sound now.
Q: Who gave you pieces of advice?
Ans: Another one of my good friends. Again, I won’t give any names — but he gave me all the advice I needed for every song I sent his way. His advice shaped the way most of the songs on the album sound now.
Q: What do you do now a days?
Ans: I’m a student in college. I don’t know which way I’m headed, major-wise. Hopefully this passion of mine will help me pay for all my classes!
Q: Let us know something about your future projects.
Ans: Future projects? I haven’t even given them any thought yet. For the time being, I’m more concerned with promoting this album and pushing it into the spotlight. But I’d be thrilled to work with already established musicians, if they’ll have me.
Q: What is your message to your fans?
Ans: Dear fans, I love all of you. I’ve struggled long and hard through the production of this album. I’ve been to hell and back abusing my musical work as a distraction from the most painful thing that has ever happened to me. By listening to me, you make me feel like it wasn’t for naught — that you share in my pain to lessen the burden on me. I really, sincerely thank you for that.
Q: Any message for new artist?
Ans: New artists! Don’t be afraid to explore. Be creative with your marketing. Prepare yourself to spend some money. But most importantly, be true to your passions and let them ring true in your work.
