Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

Jon Sawyer Coffin; USA; 1998; My childhood experience was nothing special: Super Mario then Call of Duty… then back to Super Mario. I have always been a huge fan of cartoons and I think that kind of plays a role in the overall theme of my music. Childhood is something I’m trying to keep alive.. for everyone.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I released my first EP back in May in collaboration with some dudes named Jonah Senzel and Brian Halliday and it was a huge first step for me. Fast forward a couple months and I have just recently (it’s been about a month since release) put out my first solo tape on my Soundcloud page. Since the release of the tape, I have done a number of live performances and am concentrating on that as the next step in my “career.” I’m a rapper through and through, I love words and I love music.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

My genre is Hip Hop. More specifically, the concept of my music is all about nostalgia. As I mentioned earlier, I think our culture focuses on accelerating youth and really I’m just trying to play around while I still have the time. My music is just about having fun and channeling that child-like energy society has forced many people to leave behind.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

Honestly, the biggest challenge I’ve faced is the internet. It seems like everywhere you turn somebody is trying to rap on Souncloud. The only way I’ve learned to overcome this challenge is by remaining confident in myself and believing in what I’m doing… in life, that’s all you can really do.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

I used beats on the tape made by a few producers I found on the internet. Most notable, is a young producer from Germany who I’ve begun a relationship with and who made two of the beats on the tape, Abel Petite. As far as actual recording goes, it’s all because of my man Collin McClutchy who acted as my guy behind the monitor and who really helped me in bringing this record to life.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

I’ve only been at this music thing for about a year. My goal, right now, is to reach as many people as possible. To some that may sound arrogant or selfish, but we all want the things we make to be shared. As far as long-term aspirations, I just want to entertain and inspire… and have fun doing what I love.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

Everything. Visual art, dance, film and literature are all influences on what I do. Just people in general are probably the biggest reason for why I do what I do.

The secret behind making a hit song? Boy, I wish I knew.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

It’s gonna be alright.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Collaborate.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

I have two tapes out on SoundCloud under the name O Jonny. As for a tour… I’m gonna need more support before I can make it happen.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

A lot of the tape I released at the end of September I wrote over the course of the summer. I typically write in a stream of consciousness and then tuck the lyrics away for a while until I stumble back onto them and at that point can look at them in a new light. A lot of my ideas just kind of fall together, but I think that’s what makes my lyrics kind of special.

Name five biggest artists that you like.

My biggest inspirations are Kanye West, Chance the Rapper, Kendrick Lamar, Amine and Matty Matheson.

.

.

.

Name the artists you have collaborated with before in your songs or artists you are willing to collaborate with in the future if you have the chance to do so.

Collaboration is a mindset that I live by. Working with others is how we ultimately survive. He who travels the fastest travels alone, but he who travels the farthest travels with others. I’ve worked with Mt. Telegraph, GULES and a few others. As far as the future goes, I want to work with as many people as possible.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

I try to take everyday as a step to something greater and I try to keep my head in the present (lame answer).

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

A million dollars certainly doesn’t go as far as it used to, but I’m a family man so I would probably just use it to pay off some bills and then I probably wouldn’t have much less but maybe I would buy a motorcycle just to annoy my Mom.
