Q: First of all we want to say welcome to you.
A: Thank you for having me. It’s a pleasure.
Q: How did you come into music industry?
A: I took piano and viola lessons from a very young age, and I’ve always loved music, but when I was a teenager I really got into rock and roll and started playing guitar and writing songs. This past four months I’ve been recording nonstop, and it’ll be great to finally get some of these songs out to the public.
Q: Who was your inspiration for music?
A: I know this is cliche, but I’d have to say my main inspiration was the Beatles. They really expanded my horizons when it came to writing and production, and the first time I listened to their Revolver album, I sort of had the realization that making music was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Another artist who’s had a huge influence on me Bob Dylan.
Q: What is the name of your debut song?
A: It’s called “Don’t Believe in Love,” and it’s the title track of my first album.
Q: Say something about your musical journey?
A: I’ve always been adamant about being “unconventional.” When I picked up the guitar, I learned to play a right-handed guitar upside-down without re-stringing it. One reason I did that was completely accidental, but the reason I’ve continued playing that way for all these years is that I wanted to prove all the guitar elitists wrong who told me I couldn’t do it. An added bonus is that it makes my playing sound really raw and distinctive.
Q: Who helped you most in your journey?
A: I’d have to say my parents and best friend. They heard my songs before anyone else did, and they encouraged me to actually do something with them. If it weren’t for all the support they’ve given me, these songs probably would have never left my bedroom.
Q: Who gave you pieces of advice?
A: I remember talking to one alum from my college who had made a career in music. He said, “It’s hard, it’ll suck sometimes, but it’ll be worth it if that’s really what you want to do.” I think about that a lot.
Q: What do you do now a days?
A: I’m a full-time student at Middlebury College in Vermont, so that takes up most of my time. In addition, I play in an orchestra and I write songs. Occasionally I also write and arrange instrumental pieces from time to time.
Q: Let us know something about your future projects.
A: For my next album I’m planning on doing more electric songs and experimental stuff.
Q: What is your message to your fans?
A: I’m really thankful for all of your support, and keep supporting new artists- it’s one of the best things you can do.
Q: Any message for new artist?
A: Don’t give up- just continue to do what you love and you won’t regret it.
