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

Peace, I’m Jeremy “Loner” Lewis. I was born and raised in New Orleans…

 

I was the quiet, bookworm kind of kid. When I wasn’t in school, I was writing, drawing, or training in karate.

 

My mother wasn’t an affectionate woman but she taught me discipline and hustle. Above all she wanted me to be strong mentally and physically to prepare me for life as a black man in America.

.

.

.

Tell us your academic qualification.

I made it one semester in college. Unfortunately, I enrolled the same year Katrina hit. I evacuated, got back into school, and then four months later nearly lost my leg in a motorcycle accident. I still plan to finish my bachelor’s in Psychology.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music career, band name, experience and skills.

I’ve been creating since I was 12. I always did it for the love of it. I wasn’t big on the fame and fortune aspect. It wasn’t until 2017 that I decided to pursue this professionally.

 

I was inspired by the feedback from everyone who showed love and interest in my music.

 

Since 2017 I’ve released six singles and videos, and went on a promotional tour around the country. I bring a classic hip-hop sound and lyrical skill with new age energy and image

.

.

.

 

Tell us your genre and idea behind your music video or song.

Hip Hop is the genre, the idea is that too many of us look to social media amongst other things for acceptance or validation. I simply do what I love for me, regardless of what anyone “likes”.

.

.

.

Tell us how to run a record label based on your experience as an artist.

I would run it like a partnership. Develop artists creatively as well as their business savvy.

 

When things are transparent everyone can stay on the same page and progress together.

.

.

.

Tell us how you are promoting your music.

I promote through a network of DJ pools, internet radio, social media, and touring.

Loner Lewis, an up-and-coming American hip hop artist creating a sound that is regarded as a “breath of fresh air” for the hip hop enthusiast.

 

Passionate about diverse musical production, self-sufficiency, and originality – After establishing himself in the one-and-only San Antonio area, Loner’s music is now available for listening on major music distribution platforms and blogs, much to the anticipation of listeners countrywide.

 

Borne from over 15 years of passion for producing, writing, and performing hip hop music that is a deviation from the norm today, Loner, together with his producers, Loner Feaux and Loner Fit, has created a hip hop entity, LonerEra, that’s being mentioned on radio channels across the country.

 

“I’m passionate about mixing things up and providing listeners with a different kind of sound than they expect today,” said Loner. “That, coupled with my undoubted passion for musical cultivation, is what drove me to pen and complete my first official single, Breathe.”

 

 Loner’s first full-length album, Midnight Loner, was released 04/20 of 2017 featuring tracks like Never Again, Midnight, Cruise Control, Fast or Slow, Reflections, and more. It is a 12-track album in total.

 

“I am incredibly excited for listener’s feedback after sitting down and experiencing my latest single, For The Love” said Loner. Appropriately set to drop on Valentine’s Day. “Spread the word, and follow me as I promote my follow-up album, Modus Operandi.”

.

.

.

Explain the story behind the song.

I linked up with super producer Rami Beatz and booked a flight to Los Angeles. We laid the track at The Brewery studio in Burbank, California. Once I heard the beat, it was a wrap. Rami put his touch on it and the rest was history.

.

.

.

State the names of other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director.

Produced by Rami Beatz

 

Video by Felicia Nicole.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the song and music video.

I wanted to display my lyrical ability and still have a message. The video was meant to be fun, like back in the day when it was just about the music, and our love of it.

.

.

.

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

I’ve been on the grind since 2017. I plan to simply share my gift with whomever chooses to receive it. I want to make an impact more than I want to make money.

.

.

.

Tell us what makes you unique from others.

My sound is like no other, I am someone you can relate to yet still exotic enough to keep you interested. I have balance, and that’s rare.

.

.

.

My weakness is my over thinking, my strength is lyricism.

Tell us your position on “Do It Yourself” and signing to a major label.

.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

Loner Lewis, it’s more of a character trait than a name but I’ve always been most comfortable alone. But the deeper meaning behind it is I am a firm believer in self-reliance and being the example. Loners are leaders and aren’t afraid to take risk in pursuit of their goals, regardless of the opinions of others.

.

.

.

State the title of the song and the meaning.

The title of the song “For The Love” simply means that I don’t do things for superficial reasons, everything that I do I do it out of passion and love as should everyone else.

.

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

The title of the album will be “Modus Operandi” or M.O. for short. It means that this is my forte, my specialty, my expertise. Hip Hop is my M.O.

HENRIKES grew up in Stockholm, Sweden. She was classically trained vocally, before studying at a more contemporary music school in London.

 

Inspired by artists such as Lykke Li, Lana Del Rey, Anna Of The North and film composers such as Hans Zimmer and Javier Navarrete, she began creating her own melodic and filmic arrangements with electronic pop elements.

 

During her time in London she started collaborating with other writers, which eventually led to the release of the single Happy in 2018 with Cosmos Music.

 

Together with the same songwriters as Happy (Märta Grauers and Maria Marcus), Stockholm was born and is to be released on the International Women’s Day.

.

.

.

Go into detail on why you decided to choose music as a career.

It has just been a natural evolvement, one step leading to the next.

 

When I was little I used to forget to eat sometimes because I was sitting somewhere thinking of a new melody or story.

 

It seems like that part of me has just kept going, or I have found an outlet for it and I’ve kept creating, which has opened doors and led me to where I am today.

.

.

.

Brief us the feedback you are getting from fans on your music.

My favourite one is that it doesn’t sound exactly like something else; it has its own personality and conveys an emotion.

.

.

.

Discuss the relevance of social networking to music.

Social networking in terms of working with others has been very important to me as it has really inspired me, challenged me and developed me.

 

In terms of getting your music out it’s of key relevance, especially if you’re trying to do your own thing – getting other people on board that understand your ideas, whether it’s collaborators or followers.

.

.

.

Tell us how you record your song.

This song was recorded in Cosmos studio in Stockholm.

 

Märta started playing this guitar riff, Maria added some chords on the piano and I sang on top of that.

 

It was recorded in two days I think. We all discussed the lyrics a lot, it was important to make the words flow right, visually describe Stockholm, and at the same time weave in these metaphors that I had in mind

.

.

.

Tell us the story behind the song.

There are so many levels to relate to this song, which is why I love it so much.

 

The song is about my hometown Stockholm, narrated in a metaphorical way.

 

It’s about the complicated love to someone who is not happy here in Stockholm, longing away from heavy darkness in the winters.

 

Then there is this other side, sort of defending this place and emphasizing the high hopes when light comes back in spring.

 

Having lived abroad and coming home with new perspectives I sometimes felt frustrated, and so I have to also remind myself of the things that can be taken for granted here.

.

.

.

State your musical skills.

I am a recording artist. I write songs, mainly on the piano and I am a singer.

 

My skills are in my ears, my mind and my voice. Sometimes I make arrangements of other songs, such as with Blackbird by the Beatles.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how long it takes to complete a song from the start. Wow, so different depending on the song.

 

Everything from a week to months but that has mainly got to do with the creative process, so perhaps leaving an idea for some time to then revisiting it and finishing it later with fresh eyes / ears.

.

.

.

Go into detail on how you develop your lyrics and melody.

This is a good question because I don’t really know. And that’s what I love most about this I think, there are no rules and each song is different.

 

I would say I often begin with melodies, but not always.

 

Sometimes I begin with lyrics, which I often spontaneously write in my phone on the metro.

 

If I play some chords, or a sound / atmosphere I often get associations in my mind and sometimes melody and words come out at the same time and it’s like “oh, that was the chorus”. That’s exactly what happened on “I’m leaving but I’m feeling happy”.

.

.

.

Discuss music in full details.

Music is such a broad word; I wouldn’t know how to discuss it in full details.

.

.

.

State your four favourite genres of music with reasons.

Dream pop – This genre quite often describes the ‘current mood’ in my head.

 

Jazz – Free, relaxing, musically challenging.

 

Indie / alt pop – Some of my favourite artists…

 

Electronica – Experiment with sounds.

.

.

.

Discuss your rehearsal. 

Normally organized, I can be a bit of a perfectionist but I care a lot about other people feeling inspired about what we do.

.

.

.

State your favourite musical instruments. 

Synthesizers and cello.

.

.

.

Discuss your personality in full details.

Multi-dimensional.

State your reason for choosing music as a career.

The reason I choose music as a career is because I know my music will touch and help people to keep believing in themselves when no one else believes.

 

My music will also help individuals who are struggling to know that there is better for them.

.

.

.

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.

I write lyrics to my songs by playing the beat and just listening for a good 20 minutes just to get a vision and then I start jotting down what I envisioned.

.

.

.

Discuss your life outside the music world.

My life outside of music is just basic daddy duties with my son and my daughter.

 

Cooking, cleaning, laughing and joking.

 

Doing homework and having talks with my son about life and what is it that he wants to achieve in life as well as giving him pointers and guidance to them both.

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

I’m an independent artist who owns my own Record Company in hopes of landing a distribution deal or even an artist deal with a major label.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your artist’s name.

It’s funny because my name Soupblack came about from my nickname being Soupy and some of my peers calling me black. But it also stands for Started Out Under Privileged Black.

.

.

.

Tell us your source of inspiration.

My source of inspiration is the struggle. Being able to one day escape from out of the struggle and be able to go out in the world and hear people singing my songs all while I’m donating and helping the less fortunate is my inspiration.

.

.

.

Tell us your experience on dealing with fans.

My experience with fans has so far been very positive just from the standpoint of them asking why am I not in heavy rotation on the radio just lets me know that they want to hear me and their constantly asking me.

 

Also just the smiles I have been able to put on so many of my core fans faces is priceless.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the recording of this song.

The recording of this song was done at 3 AM while lying in my bed I just was listening to the track / beat I sat up and I just started flowing with a huge smile on my face.

.

.

.

Tell us your future projects.

I have a few albums that I will be releasing in Early May 2019. The first album will be released on May 17, 2019 and it’s titled Get’cha Money.

 

But the single will be available on March 8, 2019 on all digital retailers; it’s also tilted Get’cha Money.

.

.

.

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

Get’cha Money is the album title and it’s basically me talking and telling myself ‘Soupblack, ‘Get’cha Money’ it’s beyond my time.

Share your press release and reviews with us.

Octavia Romano opens up in “APERTA”, her EP Solo Debut

 

Octavia Romano releases her much awaited first solo record, EP debut “Aperta.”

 

After years of crafting her sound while hustling as freelancer in New York City, Octavia Romano sets to deliver her artistic statement in “Aperta” (Latin for “open”).

 

“Aperta” represents Octavia Romano’s first statement as a solo artist, condensing years of experience as a hustling musician. It represents a coming to terms of several influences and experiences.

.

.

.

Tell us how you protect your singing voice.

I do vocal exercises and warm ups, drink tea before a show or recording, sleep a lot and have a generally very healthy lifestyle (no smoking, little alcohol, exercise, etc.).

.

.

.

Tell us the major reason you are into music.

Music has been my driving force since I was very little. I have always been fascinated by music, I think it’s a magical and mysterious thing, and learning and exploring it as a creator makes me the happiest.

.

.

.

Discuss creativity and originality in music.

I think creativity and originality in any activity has to do with staying true to yourself and devoting your time to finding your own identity as a person and creator.

.

.

.

Tell us your plans pertaining music.

I plan on writing and releasing music, recording, performing and also teaching, which really interests me, especially early education.

 

I have the hope of being able to have my own music school for children at some point.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret of success.

I don’t really know if there is a secret and I think success can be defined in different ways, depending on whom you ask.

 

For me, success means staying true to my vision; the things I’d like to explore and develop, and if possible, continue paying my bills while doing it.

.

.

.

Tell us how you became a musician.

I started very, very young. My earliest memory is of attending a local children choir where I grew up, I was around 3 or 4 years old. From there I started taking guitar lessons and I haven’t stopped studying and doing music since then.

.

.

.

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

Finishing a project comes with a great sense of relief that it’s finally done. I’m happy to say we were able to realize it, and I’m not sad about anything, but I’d like to have had more time to maybe develop the music more and continue perfecting it.

 

I think having limitations is great because it pushes you to keep moving and creating.

.

.

.

Tell us your point of view on rape and sexual harassment, and how to eradicate it.

These are issues that have existed since the beginning of time. It just happens that now they are starting to be taken more seriously in a social, political and cultural way.

 

I’m not sure if there would be a way to eradicate these issues completely, but sex education (including all aspects, not just biology), specially for young children, I think is one of the keys.

.

.

.

List the people that assisted in making this song.

Engineering, mixing and co-producing: Bryan Fennelly

 

Mastering: Mike Davidson

 

Musicians: Bengisu Gocke (violin), Shao Chia Lee (cello), Daniel Yoong (bass), Kyle Harris (drums), Anastassiya Petrova (piano)

 

I wrote, arranged and co-produced the song, and did the vocals and guitar on it.

.

.

.

Tell us how you get financial support to run your music career.

It’s been a mix of multiple income streams, including teaching music, performing and other music related jobs.

 

In the case of this particular recording, I funded it through a crowdfunding campaign. I also do many other tasks for my career myself including web and graphic design, booking and promotion.

.

.

.

Tell us the genre of your music and the reason you went for this genre.

I never really thought about my music in terms of genre. I certainly have influences that come from just listening to music, learning and studying it.

 

In the case of this recording, I chose the “alternative” genre because it encompasses different styles, mixed together, including folk, rock and classical music.

.

.

.

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

I feel like first and foremost, I’m a composer, so when the time to write songs came it didn’t feel like something completely new to me, so I enjoy doing it on my own. That said I’d like to collaborate with other songwriters.

.

.

.

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

I’m currently planning on studying a bit more about technical aspects of production, in order to be able to better communicate my ideas with a producer. I like collaboration but I also would like to keep my own vision for my music, rather than asking someone else to do it for me.

.

.

.

Tell us the story behind this song.

This song was written at different times, a couple of years ago. The music came first, as a kind of mantra, and the lyrics later.

 

I was trying to write a song about things falling apart, and being surrounded by chaos, like in the middle of a giant emotional wave.

 

I wanted to see if I could write a song that was about ugly feelings, but at the same time, looking for redemption through it.

.

.

.

Tell us your favorite brand of microphone. 

I don’t have one, but lately I’ve been using a nice portable RØDE microphone, that can be connected to my laptop directly via USB.

 

It’s very practical to write ideas and record decent home demos.
