Wearing a heavy coat of grunge rock, her music acts as apologues of seclusion, transmogrification and undoubtedly individualism.

 

Siobhan tells cautionary tales for the society dating back to scratched images on a cave wall and releases the caged frustration of today’s world.

 

Intelligent songwriting that cuts to the bone, brooding with imagery alike the stories of the Brothers Grimm, is hypnotic in Siobhan’s Gaelic tinged vocal.

 

Growing up on the hem of a city center, as a teenager, Siobhan found her solace in the shelves that lined her bedroom walls.

 

Fascinated by documentaries about human action, and wearing out her DVDs and video games, through living she became involuntarily exposed to the tragedy and wonder of the world around her.

 

In turn, she cut her teeth by playing guitar in high school screamo and metal bands, whilst worshipping those who dared to bare themselves on stage and forever etched on a record.

 

Finally able to sacrifice to the screaming inside her heart urging her to use her own voice, Siobhan found a release for the frustration as a young person who had already experienced heartbreak.

 

As a part of the first generation of musicians uploading covers to YouTube, Siobhan released the apprehensions and anxieties of adolescence into music. From a delicate whisper in the ear to screaming hysteria, Siobhan has trained not only her voice but herself.

 

Crafting music that nestles in your ear as easily as the propaganda of today’s popular culture, Siobhan’s latest release, Consumed By Chaos, is a rip-roaring whirlwind.

 

“I was absolutely knackered when writing the EP. I think the ideology behind the Consumed By Chaos EP is that is literally what I was. The songs that were coming out were more erratic than my older stuff. So much was going on, and it naturally just happened.”

 

For Siobhan, the EP represents a change in direction and an outlet that was needed for a while, for it wrote itself when the time was right.

 

“Although chaos was around me, I finally had control.” she says.

 

Having been crippled by writer’s block, the words started to pour out in a cathartic flood.

Discuss how you find the sounds that fit your vocals.

It found me I guess!

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you come up with ideas to create your lyrics.

Usually, I use whatever life has thrown at me, to be honest! Then it’s just a case of making it rhyme.

.

.

.

Tell us how you ensure the music producer balances your vocals with the instrumentals properly.

I guess it depends on who you work with – I found from previous experience taking a demo of it and playing it in the car. If it sounds good in a car it sounds good anywhere!

.

.

.

 

Discuss the recording process of this song.

I worked with Neil Segrott at Tiny Studios. We tracked the drums and guitar together first then layered everything else on top.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your experience recording the vocals.

I’ve always had a good experience and find it pretty easy. It’s always good to lean back when projecting and all the little bits and tricks you sort of learn on the job! I’ve recorded vocals for my own stuff as well as a recent project for the BBC and Grace Petrie.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you ensure your songs sound well.

Sound well?  I guess again it depends on who you work with. I just go with what sounds good to me as that’s what’s important.

.

.

.

State the best means of generating income in today’s music business.

You tell me! Ha!

.

.

.

State the people involved in creating this song and their roles.

I wrote the song and the parts – it was just a case of the band putting their unique twist on it.

.

.

.

 

Explain how you get involved in music.

I started off at open mic nights about ten years ago which led to actual shows and just gradually went up from there.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite song and the reason.

My favourite song is Olafur Arnalds – 3055. If you listen to it you will know why. It’s just beautiful.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on the use of digital effects on vocals.

I don’t have a problem with it to a certain extent.  As long as you’re not miming live then it’s fine!

.

.

.

 

Explain the relevance of creativity to music.

Well, you got to be creative to make music right?  Statistically, music helps stimulate the brain particularly creatively so it’s all relative.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the steps to take before going into the studio to record.

Rest and rehearse. Make sure your band is tight before you even think of stepping in a studio.  Know the songs like the back of your hand and make sure you work out the BPM of your tracks before you go in.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you know about your fans.

All I know is that I am very grateful and appreciate their time and effort to come to shows. I love making new friends. I’ve made so many pals through my music and I think that’s great.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you see music as a rewarding career.

I believe so – once you break through.  I can’t imagine doing anything else with my life.

.

.

.

Tell us what you will do apart from music.

Well, I am currently working a day job as most musicians nowadays will tell you!

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you will prefer to watch a movie to listening to music.

Music of course.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

The song came to me as a sort of fight between the dark and the light. It can be interpreted many ways, but for me, it was about fighting your demons.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.

My artist name was given to me by my parents. Mazzei is Italian and Siobhan actually came from my Mum watching an interview with the band Bananarama on TV. One of the members is called Siobhan and my mum thought the name was nice and well here I am!

At 25 years old, Chicago native Dav Paris breaks into the Chicago music scene with his debut EP titled “Lost.”

 

Influenced by aspects across all genres of music, with a focus on pop, hip-hop, and electro-pop and, the sounds Dav creates are both fresh and exciting.

 

Through his lyrics, Dav takes the listener on a rollercoaster of emotions—from love and heartbreak to loss and confusion. “Lost” delivers a unique yet relatable perspective for those just trying to figure life out.

.

Tell us how you develop your sound and style to make it different from other musicians. 

I don’t believe anything is completely different or new. People get inspired by things that have already been done and seemed to mold it into their own, which is what I’ve done. Everything has been done in some sort of way.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on the way new artists are coming up and the frequent release of songs.

I mean if it works for you, awesome. I believe in taking my time. I’ve never been one to rush a song and never will. I’m a bit of a perfectionist which is a gift and a curse. Sometimes it takes me two weeks to write a song and other times it takes me 30 minutes. Either way, I will go over it a million times until I feel it is right, which is rare. I guess it all depends on how my energy is that day.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on streaming and digital download of songs.

I think it is nice. It gives the independent artist a great chance of getting noticed and better opportunities to be successful in music.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your goals and plans. 

For people to listen to my music and know even though life is hard, everything will be okay.

.

.

.

 

Tell us five current artists that are your favourite. 

  1. Drake

  1. Martin Garrix

  1. Calvin Harris

  1. Dua Lipa

  1. Lil Nas X

Tell us your best song up to date.

Party Till The Sun Up.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your dream and hope for the future.

To make people feel good with the art I create.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what has changed in the music industry.

There are a lot more tools for independent artists now than before.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on television/radio stations playing the same songs from established artists and giving little chances to independent artists. 

I think it’s bogus. Half are industry plants. It should be real artists to get real recognition.

.

.

.

Tell us the challenges independent artists are facing and how to tackle it. 

Direction for your career and value for your art – I think a way to tackle that would be to find a manager.

.

.

.

 

Share your press release and reviews with us.

The Deli Magazine

.

Tell us your opinion on using social media to promote music online.

I think it’s beautiful. It’s easier to get your music in front of potential fans with advertisements.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about your music career.

It’s just starting so, so far so good. This is my first major release and it feels dope.

.

.

.

Tell us what still motivates you to go on with your music career. 

Expression. Overcoming fear of expressing.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about you as a person.

I love watching films and making music while drinking a Coke.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the story behind the song. 

It’s about kids going out and falling in love at the moment.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the process involved in making this song.

It is basically just a combined amount of times I’ve gone out with friends and strangers and had a good night – Inspiration from events that took place.

.

.

.

 

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

Dav is a nickname my friends all gave me growing up so it is a part of who I am. Paris – because I’m from Europe.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

“Party Till The Sun Up” pretty self-explanatory haha.

.

.

.

 

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

The EP is titled “Lost”. I named it this because each song is an expression of how I felt at a certain point and time in my life. All have to do with relationships I’ve found myself in. The songs feel bipolar when you listen to all three in order.
