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

Real name is Taylor Christensen, from United States. Born July 18, 1993. Grew up in the most average, conservative middle class family you could ever imagine, but always had dreams to do something big.

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

My stage name is T.Chrisp. In high school, I wrote a rap song as a joke/competition with my brother. From that experience I realized that writing lyrics was almost therapeutic for me. It became a simple hobby until I linked up with a few guys from high school who knew the basics of music production. From there, we formed an indie hip hop band and toured locally for a couple years. When the band phase ended, I decided to really take things seriously and began teaming up with EDM producers who I felt would be able to create the powerful sound I had always envisioned.

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

The truth is, although I’m a rapper I don’t necessarily enjoy rap music. I love the energy from pop and EDM music but I’m deeply rooted in the influence solid rap lyrics can have on an audience. This project is simply the combination of those two aspects of music. Each video is short film style because my music is meant to tell a story and I would prefer the audience to see the story rather than see me dancing around in front of the camera. This song and video in particular is meant to connect with anyone who has felt crazy about someone, and had to go through the stressful process of reading the signs to trying and figure out if that person was crazy about them too. I think it’s something we’ve all been through.

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.

This is an industry of rejection and that’s something I’ve had to get used to. I seriously pour my soul into each song. Every verse I write represents a piece of my soul. It’s not just something that comes off the top of my mind, it’s a principle that forms the type of person I am. Because my songs mean so much to me, it’s been hard dealing with rejection and criticism. However, the moment someone walks up to me and tells me that my song influenced them in some way, I’m instantly relieved of the sadness of rejection.

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’ve been jumping around to different producers to try and find the sound that best fits my style. I found a guy named Adam Turley who blew my mind since the first studio session. This dude knows how to create instrumentals that mess with your emotions. Fortunately for me, grew up with Mckay Watson who is an expert in combining powerful music with powerful video. He has been my videographer for this project and he has absolutely knocked it out of the park.

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

I’ve only been doing this for about 3 years now. I was in a band for the majority of the time but this most recent solo project has expanded my range of creativity. I’m not sure where I’ll end up but I am much more concerned with the depth of the influence I provide rather than the span of the audience.

.

.

.

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

A good song can be an instrument in the world for good. Music is meant to impact our emotions and I want to help the guy that just broke up with his girlfriend, or the mom who is struggling to take care of her five children or young teen who is battling insecurities. That’s my only motivation.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

Connection. You have to connect with people. I start every song by finding an instrumental I like, and then pulling emotion from that instrumental and finding the adequate topic.

.

.

.

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

Stay tuned. I spend a lot of time on each song and I like to think that I am continuously improving. I hope my best is yet to come. Also thanks so much for your support because without it I wouldn’t feel the need to continue with this.

.

.

.

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

Just do you. I feel like we’re all trying to copy each other in some ways but the artists that can create a sound authentic to who they are the ones who ultimately make it.

.

.

.

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

I’m a rookie to be honest. I have toured locally and have grown in my local recognition but I feel like I’m still so far from the top. The journey is what gives me adrenaline so I’m excited to see where I can take this.

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.

KRXM Radio will be featuring this song as well as Get Money Music and This Is EDM. I’m super honored to be featured by these people so early on in this project.

.

.

.

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

It all starts with finding the right emotion. I won’t be satisfied with the instrumental until it makes me feel something and connects me to a certain experience in my life. From there I write lyrics and find additional sounds with my producer that add power to the track.

.

.

.

Name five biggest artists that you like.

This is going to be all over the place but the top five artists I respect most would be Tupac, Twenty One Pilots, J.Cole, Jon Bellion and a more local artist named SIDizen King.

.

.

.

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.

 It’s been an honor to collaborate with Adam Turley on this track. This guy is going places. I also had the pleasure of making a track with the 17 year old producer Rudi Mylo who impressed me big time. My former bandmate Mitchell Henderson continues to inspire me with his ability to create soulful and creative indie music. On a more realistic level I would love to link up with SIDizen King. He’s been a big inspiration of mine. Long term I think it would be awesome to do something with Jon Bellion.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

It’s interesting because my most recent song actually represents some of my happiest and saddest days. The first part of the song is happy and uplifting because when I wrote it, there was this girl in my life who made me feel uplifted and happy. She eventually dumped me and the second half of the song represents some of my more difficult days because that’s one I was brought back to the harshness of reality and how difficult life can be sometimes. The beauty of life is that we’re able to experience a variety of emotions which blends together to make each of us wise and authentic.
