Abel Star

Tell us about yourself. 

My name is Lewis Frost. I’m 26 years young, born in London but spent my teen life by the beach in Newquay. I love to surf, play football and most of all sing and write. I am big on crystals and metaphysics and all things astrology. I currently live in Birmingham and am a father to a beautiful girl of 5. I have a strong passion for music and dance. I want a successful career so my daughter can grow up and maintain her free spirit.

.

.

.

Tell us about yourself as an artist. 

Confident and passionate about my craft; my ideal as an artist is to resonate with my audience through lyrics, voice and the mood of my songs and to be a positive role model, giving people a good feeling, a rhythm they can move to and lyrics that move them.

.

.

.

Tell us about the genre of your music.

Well if I had to categorize it I would say funk pop with a dash of soul.

.

.

.

Tell us about the story behind your song. 

It’s mainly about my personal experience of reacting to a break up but I always feel it’s a metaphor for never learning from past relationships.

.

.

.

Tell us about the problems you are facing as a musician. 

The biggest challenge for me is getting my music heard and building a reputation as an artist since there is so much competition. I have to find out what makes me unique within this industry and play to my strengths when performing.

.

.

.

Tell us about the recording and production of the song. 

It was a great time, for this song I already had the lyrics down so it was really finding a melody that matched the mood of the song and the producer Chris was a great help with finding the right synths and guitar chords to fit the song.

.

.

.

Tell us more about your music career, experience and future goals. 

I’m fairly new to the industry. I have performed at gigs and covers across the United Kingdom over the last couple years but have recently been focusing a lot of my time and energy on my music and developing myself as an artist. My goal is to headline festivals and hold big music events with amazing dancing and lighting to accompany me and to make it a spectacular show.

.

.

.

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

My daughter, my girlfriend, my parents and the feeling I get when something that I know will resonate with others because it resonates with me and I think that’s important because we all experience the same feelings in different contexts but our emotions are all the same.

.

.

.

Brief us the top-secret behind making a hit song. 

A fat bass and a hard hook or something meaningful.

.

.

.

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

Stay focused as an individual and don’t follow what other people do.

.

.

.

Discuss at length your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained. 

This is my first album, before this I obtained a Dance degree and I feel like that could be an award for good dancing.

.

.

.

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

I usually create a melody or hook using my voice and then build from there with the lyrics; this helps when going into the studio as it can grow and expand naturally once you get the foundation of the song down.

.

.

.

Name the artists you are willing to collaborate with. 

Tom Misch or Kaytranada.

.

.

.

State the links to your social networks and stores for purchase of your songs.

.

.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day. 

Happiest day was the day my daughter was born and being responsible for another life changes you for sure. Saddest day was probably when my uncle past away last year from lung cancer; he was only 60 and it was very hard especially for my Mum.

.

.

.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars. 

First I’d get a home with heated floors and a sauna, then I would invest the rest into something that would make a positive impact on the earth maybe hemp bottled water or something because I know plastic is a major problem.

.

.

.

Tell us about your song. 

My song is called “Hurricane” and it’s about getting blowing smoke to deal with emotional pain after a break up.

.

.

.

Tell us how you manage other activities with your music career. 

Organizing my time and ensuring my priorities are straight. I always try to put music first and ensure I have a daily routine so that no matter what I always do what is important, no matter what other responsibilities I have that day.

.

.

.

State the official date of release.

9th February 2018.

.

.

.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it. 

Abel Star is my artist name and it refers to Abel from Abel and Cain in the Bible and the Star makes it stand out in the dark.

.

.

.

State the title of the song and the meaning. 

The song is called “Hurricane” and it’s a metaphor for the way you feel after you’ve had a break up where all you want to do is loose yourself to try and forget the pain.

Phonosapiens

 

 

 

Tell us everything will need to know about you.

The group Phonosapiens is D.J. Defect on production in collaboration with different artists. Defect won the US DMC online team battle in 2015. Rahman Jamal who raps on ‘Over’ won the John Lennon song writing contest in 2016 in the hip hop category. He was also starred in the movie titled “The Beat”. Phonosapiens music has been on TV, film and commercials since the early 2000s.

.

.

.

State your favourite genre of music and your reason.

Trip hop. It’s the most diverse genre in my opinion.

.

.

.

Tell us your experience as a musician.

Terrible. The business side of things kills the enthusiasm to work.

.

.

.

Tell us the theme of your song.

Just saying that now that we’re here; the game is over.

.

.

.

 

Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform.

 D.J. Chopps, Quixotic, Ostrich Head, GoBig Entertainment.

.

.

.

Tell us about your future goals.

I’d like to get out an album of original music, a mashup album and do short projects in film.

.

.

.

Go into detail about your opinion on religion and politics.

Religion: I think everyone worships something and since we have an innate desire to do so, I believe there is a God that puts that desire in us.

Politics: I think both sides are crazy and being a career politician shouldn’t be an option.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.

I hope that they can look at life from a more playful perspective when they listen to my work.

.

.

.

Explain the changes you have observed so far in the music industry.

No middle ground exists anymore. You’re a pop star or a nobody; disappointing.

.

.

.

State the artists you cherish most and your reason.

D.J. Shadow, Cut Chemist, Diplo, Krush, Operation IVY, Q-bert. Reason being, all of them in some ways inspired me to become disciplined and then let loose.

.

.

.

Give us the links to your social network and stores.

I avoid social media at all costs right now. Too many people I don’t get along with. 😦

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.

Lyrics have to complement and play with the production or band or whatever and then be reexamined to add something extra.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.

They’re equal. Too much of either will drive you crazy.

.

.

.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the kind of music with genuine message that inspires them.

Hopefully both. Public Enemy talked about getting people to dance in order to convey a message. I’m not making stuff for the club but I hope it hits and makes people move. Especially b-boys.

.

.

.

Tell us what you know about copyright.

 I don’t deal in it. I’ve done lots of licensing though.

.

.

.

Discuss the impact of a Performing Rights Organization.

It’s absolutely necessary for artists to be treated fairly. Some countries don’t have royalty systems in place and artists just get boned by big companies. No where’s perfect but the US is better than a lot of places.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.

I always try to take a different approach to each song to keep it interesting and not feel like work.

.

Aria Nichols – Temptation

 

Dubbed the Adele of Trap music, Aria Nichols is an exciting up-and-coming artist, ready to take the Electronic music world by storm. Raised in New Zealand, but based in Dubai, Aria kick-started her musical career during her final year at medical school.  She teamed up with talented producer Don Fuego, forming a solid tandem and fusing deep, authentic songwriting with EDM.

 

 

Solid early influences including The Cranberries, Alanis Morissette, The Carpenters, Shakira and more recently Tove Lo, Ellie Goulding and fellow New Zealand star Lorde – Aria has put her signature on Trap, adding Jazzy undertones, unique melodies and soulful, emotive lyrics to the distinct heavyweight drops associated with the genre.

 

 

Aria Nichols new single ‘Temptation’ follows hot on the heels of her November 2017 debut single ‘See Where This Goes’. ‘Temptation’ tells the story of lust at first sight, a highly relatable account of the initial moments of a rather temporary but intense attraction.  Aria explores the darker side to the club scene with subtle references to ecstasy use with lines such as ‘before the buzz wears off’ and also gently touches on issues of consent with ‘before the love is gone’.  The relaxed melody and sleepy vocals set the scene, with Don Fuego’s tropical vibe drop perfectly complementing the mood.

 

 

Aria has launched an exciting, intense release schedule for her music, with her signature sound and catchy melodies she is sure to keep her name in the spotlight over the coming months!

Tell us your view on old school and new school music in terms of preference.

I love new school music at the moment. I really appreciate old school music and I miss the importance of storytelling that was always prominent in old school music. However I love the focus on rhythm of new school music. I just wish the two could merge in a way.

.

.

.

Tell us your most memorable day as an artist.

The moment I finished my first EP. We were exhausted in a tiny studio back in South Africa and we finally finished the last mix and sent it over for mastering. It was a good feeling!

.

.

.

Tell us what you would do for the people if you found yourself in a position of power.

I would serve. I feel like most leaders forget that they are there to serve the people instead of lead from their pedestal. Being in power does not exempt you from working hard. Listening to the people is also important. We will never know all the answers therefore conversation is needed. Overall, there needs to be a lot more love in places of power and their connection to the people. I would like to add to that.

.

.

.

Tell us how you protect your singing voice.

I never shout. I will only project. I also try stay away from loud areas so I don’t have to shout in order to have a conversation. I try to get 8 hours of sleep for my vocal chords to rest. Doing vocal exercises at least three times a week is also important. I usually do more than that, but that is my minimum.

.

.

.

Tell us the major reason you are into music.

I have always wanted to help people in some capacity. I chose music as my profession because it’s the medium I prefer at the moment, to reach out to people and their emotions. Music has helped me get through many situations and I would love to help others through my music. Taking someone on an emotional journey is beautiful. We sell experiences and I think it’s a unique thing to sell.

.

.

.

Tell us what you think about creativity and originality in music.

I think it is so important. Being creative is something that is necessary to everyone. I also think original music is important because everyone has their own perspective on life and the situations we find ourselves in. The more original content we put out, the more people we can help relate to and just help in general.

.

.

.

Tell us your future plans pertaining music.

I am working on some new music now as well as my next EP. I have just relocated to L.A. to start working in a new territory and hopefully my music will keep on growing.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret of success.

Authenticity, perseverance and leadership.

.

.

.

Tell us how you become a musician.

I wanted to play guitar at the age of 8 but my hands weren’t big enough so I played piano instead. Eventually by the age of 10 I went to my first singing lesson. I was by no means a natural so I would practice day in and day out.

.

.

.

Tell us what makes you happy and sad about this project.

I love that I wrote the lyrics and melody of this song all by myself. This is the first song I have had no collaboration with on the songwriting. The content of the song is really sad, so I guess there’s a bit of sad nostalgia that comes along when listening back to this song of mine.

.

.

.

Tell us your point of view on rape and sexual harassment, and how it can be eradicated.

I have a no mercy perspective on the matter. I am still trying to think of ways to eradicate it. One of the best ways that is not difficult is to have more conversations about it. It shouldn’t be a taboo subject. Teaching kids from a lunge age about it is also important. I know too many kids that have been in this situation where they are only aged at 7 and it is happening to them. Kids, teens and adults have to be educated on the topic sooner. Also, we all think rape is possible mostly with strangers when the majority of rapes happen to be done by someone you know.

.

.

.

List the people that deserved to be given credit for the making of the song.

Clark Cables

Myself

.

.

.

Tell us how you get fund to run your music career.

My performances allow me to make music. I also have one investor who funds a portion of my projects.

.

.

.

Tell us the genre of your music and the reason you decided to go for this genre.

My genre is alternative pop. It’s what I most authentically connect to.

.

.

.

Tell us if you prefer to write your own songs or you prefer to write with professional songwriters.

I prefer to start off ideas by myself and then get professional songwriters to collaborate thereafter.

.

.

.

Tell us if you prefer to produce your songs or you prefer to work with reputable producers.

I prefer to work with reputable producers.

.

.

.

Tell us the story behind this song.

Too many relationships are full of lying. Too many words and not enough actions. When you really love someone, you are willing to work on your flaws and bad habits. The song is about seeing the potential in people but giving them their last chance to fight for the relationship because sometimes love isn’t enough.

.

.

.

Tell us your favourite brand of microphone.

I am really enjoying Shure at the moment.
