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

My name is CHROMANCE … born in June 1988 and raised in the eastern part of Berlin. What a place to grow up! So many opportunities and so much laissez-faire.

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

In a nutshell: My father is a concert pianist and I enjoyed a good musical education through my parents. But they never wanted me to be a musician as they knew about the struggles. I play piano and guitar quite OK I guess.

Then a friend introduced me to electronic music! Boom! That was it. I knew that I had to be part of this. I studied music production and traveled the world to get inspired by the different sounds and the people I met.

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

There’s no concept. Not yet. To be right, there’s one concept: I don’t want to sound like all the other songs on the radio. I want and I deeply need to be different.

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.

The hardest part is to make a living out being a producer and songwriter. I had several part time jobs to finance my studies and my living. The up is sure when you listen to your song on the radio the first time. That’s goosebumps pure. And when people connect to your music!

.

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. 

Actually there’s no band. I’m a one more show. I try to create as much as possible on my own. I wrote the song in LA during my stay in February. I recorded the vocals in my Air’b’nb flat using my Kaotica Eyeball and my precious Neumann mic.

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

I would say that I’m part of the industry since 2 years. That’s not a long time. So far, all good 🙂

Streaming is the biggest challenge over the next years. But I think that we always should embrace new technologies.

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

Talking to people is my biggest inspiration I guess. It’s about the interaction and the things that can happen within a conversation. I usually sing or write the ideas directly in my phone.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song. 

A real hit song finds the balance between a unique and unusual approach and a learned structure like verse, chorus, c part.

.

.

.

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

Be nice, listen to my music!

.

.

.

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

Produce a song every day. Write a song every day. Train your skills. Build a network. Connect and listen to your fans.

.

.

.

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform. 

This is still the beginning … so I guess you’re one of the firsts.

.

.

.

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

It’s just me, my laptop or my phone. Everything runs on my powerbook. So I can travel and work. That gives me so much freedom. Imagine this 10 years ago, not possible.

I usually start with the verse … and especially the first line. The first line has to inspire the rest. And the first line has to hook the listener immediately. From there to the chorus. I usually just lay out a basic chord progression and work on a beat. And that’s it.

My happiest day was when I realized that I can start living from my music. The saddest, when my hamster died.
