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

I’ve had a pretty eclectic musical career; I started playing drums when I was 8 years old in primary school. I learnt African percussion and did that for about 3 years. I then moved onto high school and started playing drum kit in bands, mainly jazz and soul stuff. I studied music for most of my academic life and then went to uni and studied a bachelor of music performance but then dropped out of that because Jazz doesn’t pay the bills. After that I started teaching myself to produce and I’ve spent the last 3 years producing and putting music on the net.

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

I guess I make future bass ha-ha, I don’t know, something like that. I don’t really have concepts for my music; it’s kinda all based on feeling. I just make something till it is right.

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.

Making music isn’t easy, you have to put all the work in with no guarantee that anyone will give two fucks about it, you have to put yourself on the line and just hope that someone out their vibes it. I get so down about it, some days I wake up and I’m so G’d to make music, but then other days I’m like fuck it what’s the point, what does it all mean, does anyone even care about what I’m doing. The whole thing is just like a big existential crisis ha-ha, but you just have to stick with it and find your way through it. It’s worth it I guess, just gotta be kind to yourself.

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.

This track like most of my other tracks was made lying in bed on my laptop with a pair of headphones on. Originally it was completely different beat that I sent to the vocalist, but when I got the vocals back I scrapped the whole thing and made a new beat for it. Aleshia (the vocalist on the track) is such a G, she’s got a belter of a voice, and anything she sings on is usually fire. It’s not hard working with someone like that, when they just ooze talent.

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

I don’t know if I’m really in the music industry, I guess I am. I just make music and put it on the internet and hopefully someone likes it. I don’t have heaps of experience, everything I know I taught myself but I’ve still got heaps to learn. I’m not sure what my goals are, I just want people to feel something when they listen to my shit. I’d love to go overseas and make or play music that would be dope. I don’t wanna be Tiesto or anything, I’m just doing my thing and we will see what happens.

.

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

I make music to take my mind of life and it’s pretty therapeutic for me.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

Ha-ha I feel very unqualified to answer this question, you should ask Bruno mars this, he makes hit songs.

.

.

.

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

I’d be pretty keen to know who my fans are ha-ha. I have some plays on Spotify and Soundcloud so I presume that I have some fans out their somewhere but I have no idea who they are. Slide into my DMs whoever you are, I wanna know why you listen to my shit. The internet is isolating as fuck, it’s all just numbers on a screen, plays and shit. I don’t play shows so I don’t know who these people are ha-ha.

.

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

You do you, don’t make music for anyone else but yourself and if you ever have the opportunity to sell out, do it.

.

.

.

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

I’ve put two EPs out. I would love to go on tour.

.

.

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.

You guys are the first to give me a proper write up, so cheers for that. Much love.

.

.

.

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

My studio is an old MacBook Air, a pair of pioneer DJ headphones, Ableton live and a massive sample library. It’s not about what you’ve got, it’s about how you use it.

.

.

.

Name five biggest artists that you like.

YG, Jeremih, Shlohmo, Smokepurrp and Tory Lanez.

That’s off the top of my head though, IDK there’s so many.

.

.

.

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.

I just collaborate with my friends, all my vocalists are people that I hang out with on the weekend, I’m super blessed to have such dope connects. YOL taught me everything I know about producing, he’s tight, Check him out.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

Probably pay Bruno Mars to collaborate on a track so I can get that hit song ha-ha. Nah I don’t know, probably just blow heaps of it and then realise that I should probably buy a house.
