What has been your most favorite compliment about your music?
My most favorite compliment about my music probably has something to do with the idea that it sounds English and sounds like it’s from the 60’s. I’m a forever-fan of the British invasion and an advocate for integral English songwriters of the time like Syd Barrett, David Bowie, John Lennon and Kevin Ayers.
Who do you make your music for?
I’ve always made music for myself. Sometimes because it sounds ‘cool’ and it’s simply entertaining, sometimes it’s because the song has a special message to me and sometimes it’s because I’m trying to take a step in a new direction.
Talk to us about your latest track?
My latest track “Body of Water” is biblical in origin but is written for anyone who enjoys thoughtful textures and a poppy structure. “Body of Water” is an interesting blend of sounds. People can expect dreamy, shoe-gaze like verses with an extremely poppy chorus. Given the subject matter, I tried offsetting the heaviness by using simple, easy lyrical rhymes. I suppose if one saw these lyrics on paper, they very well may think they were from a nursery rhyme.
Where were you emotionally in your life when you created it?
I was in a confusing spot coming off of my last record “Man in Full” last December where sales hadn’t met my expectations when I figured I might try my hand at releasing singles for a while. Deep down, it’s always been a desire of mine to shoot off songs as they come to mind.
What studio experience could you relay to the artist early on in their career?
A bit of studio experience I could relay to artists early on in their career is to get good at your craft early on. Not only will it lower production costs on your end but it will also enable you to have success in the studio recording for others.
What is the next goal for you?
Going forward with my music, I’ll be continuing to add to the installments to the ‘Summer Singles’, playing locally and aiming to add a number of regional shows to the line-up. I also plan to be in touch quite frequently with my management team BsquaredMGMT about how I can push my online presence as I aim to pull more people in. They’re also helping me to take steps forward in the categories of Spotify Playlisting & creating more of a buzz with press.
When is your next single dropping? Can you tell us the name and what inspired it?
At the moment I’m still riding the wake of “Body of Water” and am just barely looking towards my next single. I’m going to hold onto the name & the inspiration behind the track for a month or two until it’s more fully formed.
