El Gato Roboto is a Power Pop/Space Rock band from Chicago.  Bowie meets Nico with songs about nostalgia, space, and cats.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your recording experience with your producer.

We produced our own album along with Andrew Arbetter. Andrew is very easy to work with and the process was fun and mostly painless.

.

.

.

Discuss what comes first and last while creating a song.

What comes first and last when writing a song is different for everyone and there are no rules or one right way. I tend to write my songs a capella and then work with a guitarist to flesh them out. I get a melody idea in my head and build the rest of the song around it.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist.

Writing music is channeling. If you’re struggling too hard to come up with a song, it’s not writer’s block, it’s an energetic block.

 

Also, take chances. Be bold. You simply must get over worrying what anyone will think of a song or a musical idea or you. This means you must be willing to make yourself vulnerable, but you will be rewarded for your vulnerability. Vulnerability is not weakness; it is strength, it’s showing your true self in all its glory.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your worse experience in the music business.

I once played a show where the sound guy got drunk and passed out on the mixing board during our set. This was with my former band, Pilgrim Beware. I was really angry and turned my back to the audience – something I would never do now. Oddly, the audience loved us though!

 

Another show that I thought was going to be great, turned out to be disastrous and the audience completely ignored us. I’ve learned to not take anything too seriously. If you mess up, laugh and usually the audience will laugh along with you. If you’re having fun on stage, it will show and the audience will have fun too.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you deal with rejection.

You’re not always going to be everyone’s cup of tea and why would you want to be? At this stage in my life, I have unshakable confidence in what I do, am genuinely appreciative of our fans, and those that don’t dig it, God bless.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you are doing to impact the people around you.

I impact the people around me by acknowledging their inherent perfection. Certainly, there are times when I forget who I truly am, and forget who everyone else is, but I always choose to turn away from the illusion and return to truth. Everyone is an absolutely essential part of the tapestry.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the music that makes you happy.

There is so much music that makes me happy. Big Star, Bowie, Brian Wilson, The Pretenders, Patti Smith, The Zombies, The Turtles, The Beatles, Love, Brian Eno, Martin Newell, ELO, The Raspberries, The Carpenters, The Jam, Jeff Buckley, Sloan, Velvet Crush, Cesaria Evora, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ariel Pink. I could go on and on.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you make instrumentation to your song.

Sometimes I have a specific idea of what I want; a vague idea of what I want, and other times I leave it entirely up to the guitarist I’m co-writing with and the other band members. How they all do what they do is a mystery to me and I’m in awe of it.

.

.

.

Tell us how you feel when you sing and your fans sing along to your song.

The first time that happened I was so shocked I almost forgot the lyrics I was singing! Of course, it’s wonderful to have others sing along. I want friends/fans to take ownership of the songs and make the music theirs. And I love having shared experiences like that.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the goals you aim to achieve when creating a song.

To create a mood, a feeling, empathy, a revelation, shared nostalgia or to make someone laugh at a lyric or wink at a reference – And if someone is moved to dance, what more could you ask for?

.

.

.

 

Discuss your approach to writing.

I write my songs a capella. I get a melody idea which often seems to want to be expressed by certain vowels, certain consonants, certain phrases. Initially, it writes itself, and then I build the rest of the song around that first inspired part and the story that it seems to want to tell. It’s channeling, essentially. People do it all the time and don’t even realize it.

 

I used to write my songs on guitar when I first started out in my late teens, but eventually, I discovered that my songwriting was being limited by my skill (or lack of) as a guitarist. It was a surprise and a revelation when I realized I really didn’t need the guitar to write with. It was liberating because I discovered I could come up with any melody, no matter how exotic and my very talented collaborators would know what to do with it, what chords to play, and what tunings to use. Together, we’d create something greater than the sum of its parts, greater than what either of us would be able to come up with on our own. It’s also a great lesson in needing others and being able to share something personal with others.

 

There have been times I have bemoaned not being able to do it all myself, not having total control. Now I realize that needing to work with someone else with a different skill set has been a huge blessing.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you plan to develop a unique music style.

I find inspiration everywhere and am willing to take chances, willing to sound silly, sound weird, sound unconventional.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how to record a song.  

Find a good engineer that knows what they’re doing, digs what they’re doing, and remember not to try to make anything too perfect. Perfection is the enemy of creativity. Go with your first instincts and don’t overthink things.

.

.

.

Tell us if you are collaborating with other songwriters or you write alone.

I collaborate with various guitarists. On our first album, it was Brian Stout, an amazing guitar player with great instincts. I just finished recording two original rock Christmas songs, one which I co-wrote with the amazing John San Juan of The Hushdrops and one with our drummer/multi-instrumentalist, Brian Demski. Both are incredibly talented musicians. I may soon be heading back into the studio with other friends/collaborators.

.

.

.

Discuss your experience with fans.

One of our songs, Icicle, was recently played on a podcast which sparked a little following among some of the podcast’s listeners. For the first time in my life, we are getting fan mail! People have been sending us messages through Instagram saying that they are digging the music. This is definitely one of the nicest, most wonderful things.

 

Music is meant to be heard, and sometimes you feel like you’ve created this music which just goes out into a void. It’s so nice to know that there are people out there listening to and appreciating the music. I’m deeply grateful to these folks for listening, for giving feedback, and for sharing the love.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your experience with booking gigs and shows.

I love making music, not trying to book gigs and do promotion, but it goes with the territory. Most of us musicians out there have day jobs and it’s challenging to find time to book shows and everything else, and sadly, musicians barely even make gas money from most shows.

 

Also, it’s just no fun playing at midnight on a Tuesday night with two people in the audience, so I found that I have become a lot more selective in what gigs I accept. I’d much rather play less live shows each year and funnel more people into a great Friday or Saturday night show every couple of months than play every week to just a few people. That being said, it’s great fun to play a live show with a great audience.

.

.

.

Tell us if you consider a song placement in TV or Film.

I would definitely consider a song placement in TV or film, under the right circumstances.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the song.

I didn’t write “Don’t Seem Right” to sound like a REM song, but for some reason, as it was unfolding, I kept hearing it in my head, not in my own voice, but how it would sound with Michael Stipe and Mike Mills singing it.

 

I could hear them alternating with the lines “don’t seem right; uptight; in the clouds.” Of course, I didn’t have them in the studio, just my own voice, so it turned out totally different from my inner audio!

 

The song is about the struggles of life and coming to terms with the truth that we are creating our own reality. It’s about trying to remain in the moment and failing: “You just gave birth to the past.” It’s also about surrender: “Any choice you make’s okay. It will turn out anyway.” Even when we make the “wrong” choice, it is the “right” choice because that’s how we learn. It’s about “having the courage to be wrong in pursuit of what is right” as Lazaris, channeled by Jach Pursel says.

.

.

.

 

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

The bass player, Patrick Thornbury, who also happens to be my husband, and I were sitting in a Mexican joint eating taco and joking about what we should call the band.

 

We own three paintings by a wonderful artist who goes by the name El Gato Gomez. Inspired by our Mexican lunch, one of our fave artists, our love of cats, and some kind of a jokey play on words with the Styx song Mr. Roboto, I blurted out “What about El Gato Roboto?!” and it stuck.

 

For a while, our friend Mike Conroy, an out of this world guitar player, was playing Moog in the band, which gave us a Space Rock feel, so the name seemed to fit. When Mike dropped out, it kind of took the “Space” out of the “Rock”, but drummer/multi-instrumentalist Brian Demski has added some synth to the record, plus we have a space/scifi themed song called Lost In Space, so I guess we could still be considered a bit “Space Rock.”

 

The title of the album, Heavy Petting, makes me think of teenagers, young love and nostalgia, and I originally had it in mind to do a humorous cover with a picture of someone trying to pet an angry cat. I didn’t think the play on words needed to be that obvious though and went with the retro, stripey cover. You’re going to find a lot of cat references with this band!

Laylow is a Mexican American rapper, recording artist, and entrepreneur originated in the San Gabriel Valleys of California.

 

He is a co-founder and artist of Baldwin Park, California, USA hip-hop collective and label Trapped N the Game (TNG).

 

Laylow wrote his very first song at the age of 18; creating a passion that would later turn into his dream career.

 

In 2018 he found himself struggling and working from job to job; barely making ends meet. It was one summer day that he felt the urge to write which reignited the passion he had found years ago.

 

His lyrics and songs are reflective of his west coast roots, and now he is on the rise doing all it takes to take it to the next level.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your name, country of birth and childhood experience.

My name is Edward Alcay, I was born in the U.S. I grew up in a city where Gangbanging/Tagging was a large part of our culture and was around that scenario a lot. I had to adapt to my environment in order to strive in my city.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you discover hip-hop.

The first time I ever heard hip-hop was when my older brother made music from across the hall; he put me up on the game with hip-hop. My older brother has been one of the most influential people when it comes to hip-hop for me because he’s the one that brought it into my life.

.

.

.

Brief us your experience creating your first song.

The first song I ever created was at the age of 16 and I was excited because it had a chopper-style like Tech N9ne. It was a big accomplishment that’s when I knew I wanted to do music.

.

.

.

 

List the name of the artists that have influenced you.

Tupac, Method Man, Nas, Biggie, Bone Thugs, Ice Cube, Dre, Xzibit – Prominently the West Coast.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the difference between the old school songs and new school songs.

Old School hip hop was fun to listen to and you could paint the picture with their lyrics. Lyricism played a big part and I am here to bring it back.

.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you compose or write lyrics.

Before I write my lyrics I vibe with the beat for a while then I start getting the feel about what to write about. I go deep with explaining things that I have seen or things that I have done. It’s a way of expressing yourself through music and that’s what I love to do.

.

.

.

 

Brief us your recording experience in the studio.

I live in my studio, so I’m constantly working and learning anything I can to be the best artist I can be. I have my morning sessions that are usually the times I have to myself in the studio. Then I have my night sessions, the studio is filled up at this point with TNG artists just vibing and creating our best work.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your gain and loss as an artist.

My gain as an artist is all the knowledge and lessons I have learned throughout the experiences I’ve had in music.

Experiences also come with some losses. Whether the experience has been working with different artists or producers, finding my own sound, putting myself out there to reach a new audience, and performing live; there is always room to grow through each gain and loss.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist.

The most important piece of advice I can give a new artist is to believe in yourself; if you don’t believe in yourself nobody else will believe in you.

.

.

.

Discuss the music industry.

I grew up in the 90s-00s era, music has changed a lot. I’m definitely looking forward to giving the industry a new sound.

.

.

.

 

State your future goal.

My future goal is to make an impact in the music industry.

.

.

.

 

Discuss the process involved in making this song.

There is a special moment when an artist hears a beat that just makes you feel something, that is the moment is when you know it is meant to be. It’s just one of the times when writing to the song becomes effortless because you feel it in your soul.

.

.

.

 

Tell us everything we need to know about the song.

“Next Level” has a very special meaning to me. It’s one of the songs that really made me see the potential I have as an artist. This song will always remind me of the drive I have and help me keep pushing to be better.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you come up with the title of the song and your artist name.

My artist name has always been easy for me because I just went with the name I’ve always been called pretty much all my life, Laylow.

TNG stands for Trapped N the Game; we are a group, collective, record label, and movement.

I usually know what to name a song once I get the idea or topic of the song, once the song is completed. I feel like a song name is very important because it’s the first thing that stands out to someone, maybe even the reason why someone listens to it.

KTEE has been singing since the moment she spoke her first word and hasn’t stopped since.

 

Countless hours of her childhood were spent in her tiny room in Maria Neustift (Austria), her home town. This is where she trained her voice on her own, relying only on her mother’s bulky red tape recorder. One pop song after another was recorded, listened to, analyzed and re-sung until she was fully satisfied with the sound. In fact, 102 recordings were collected on her treasured cassettes to the point of breaking – literally.

 

Heavily influenced by her parents’ desire to see her with a degree that offered “proper career prospects” KTEE studied at the University of Vienna where she continued working on her singing skills – this time without her tape recorder and not at all alone. She not only had voice coaches to help with voice training but also roommates and neighbours to annoy with her “gugugus” and “nenenenes” in other words singing exercises. Once, her “understanding” neighbours even threatened to call the police for noise disturbance! – But she couldn’t and wouldn’t be stopped.

 

It wasn’t the university atmosphere, but her everlasting, internal yearning to sing that led her to move to Vienna.

 

Shortly thereafter, she successfully qualified in a singing competition (The Voice), which can be viewed as kind of the beginning of her career, since she got to know her present producer there.

 

After living abroad (Ireland), where she discovered her passion for songwriting, the urge to really make it big in the music industry was stronger than ever before and the search for her musical identity started anew.

 

“It took some time until I found my place in the world of music, but I never stopped following my dream and now I am more than happy to share who I am with the rest of the world.”

 

2016 KTEE released her powerful debut single ‘Rock your life.’ The message is clear: Live in the here and now! It’s your life, don’t waste precious time! Simply rock your life!

 

Her second single (2017) ‘Rollercoaster’ became semi-finalist of the ISC 2017 (International Songwriting Competition). In this song, KTEE compares a rollercoaster ride with the ups and downs one experiences in a romantic relationship.

 

In February 2018 KTEE released her third single ‘So What’ and for which she got airplay on some UK radio stations. This song reflects the singer’s own development from a shy child full of self-doubts to a woman who knows her own mind and is strong and confident. ‘So What’ became her life motto. “Do what you love, haters gonna hate anyway. Follow your dreams, stay strong. And if you fall, stand up, shake off the dust and keep going.”

– KTEE.

 

In January 2019 her single “Melody” was released in which she uses MUSIC as a metaphor for love. Melody also became semi-finalist of the ISC. The song got airplay in Germany, England, and Switzerland.

 

In July 2019 her current single “Rich” was released. The catchy mood-lifting song is easy to sing and dance to and by singing “I am rich when I feel alive…”  KTEE encourages young people to value the moments in their lives that do not cost a thing.

 .

.

.

 

State your reason for choosing music as a career. 

It wasn’t a choice, it was a necessity. Music has always been my life, as a kid, I practiced singing to Celine Dion songs using a brush as a microphone. The music business is a tough business, so I think no one would choose this career for money reasons, but only for “passion-reasons.”

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.

I used a pen and paper. 😉 No, well we were talking about how sad it is that we are all manipulated by ads and media telling us what we need to own/buy in order to be happy. And that having a lot of money doesn’t necessarily mean that you are “rich.” It’s the people, the places, the experiences, the ups, and downs…that make you rich!

.

.

.

 

Discuss your life outside the music world.

There is no life outside the music world – seriously! Everything I say and do is music-related. Okay, sometimes, when I want to give my brain a break, I watch TV series or read a Psychothriller.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your music career.

I started singing when I was a kid, at first I practiced in my room, where I made a lot of mistakes (wrong technique), then I took singing lessons, took part at competitions and finally found my producer and a team I love working with. As I said, the music business is tough, I fell so many times, cried many times, but never gave up. I am still fighting and my biggest wish is to reach my musical goals!

.

.

.

Elaborate on your artist’s name.

Nothing special about my artist name – My “real name” is Katharina, my nickname is Katy and I wanted it to look more special, so I chose KTEE :), looks cool and sounds a bit different, as the stress is placed on the second syllable.

.

.

.

List your five favourite music videos with reasons.

Sia- Chandelier: The performance of the girl is just incredible. Really talented!

 

Ariana Grande- Into you: I love the story (the secret romance with the bodyguard); I also like the look (colours).

 

Michael Jackson – Thriller: His dance moves are legendary. And I love the 80ies.

 

Jessie J- Not My Ex: It’s so simple, but yet so powerful.

 

KTEE – Melody: The first video I directed cut myself and I am really proud of it.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your source of inspiration.

My current mood, the conversations I had with people, experiences I or other people have passed through… these are some of the things I am inspired by. In addition, I need coffee, red bull and the pressure of creating a masterpiece.

I love it when people love my music. It makes me happy to hear when one of my songs inspired other people or helped them in a difficult situation or just makes them want to dance. I always try to answer all the messages and questions they ask and of course treat them with respect.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on the recording of this song.

I love experimenting with my producer in the studio. The good thing is that my producer owns one of Austria’s biggest studios, that means we have plenty of time to really try out sounds and grooves.

.

.

.

 

State your future projects. 

I am working on my first album and new singles. The next release is planned for October 19. Of course, I plan to play as many concerts as possible and write as many songs as possible. There is always something to do. That’s what I love about this job. It never gets boring.

.

.

.

 

List the names of those that have supported you so far. 

My team, my band, people who listen to my music and some radio stations. Thanks!

.

.

.

 

Tell us your point of view on vocal tuning.

I think it is okay to use e.g. auto-tune if it is part of the overall sound. However, I think it’s not cool if it’s necessary to use auto-tune because of the singer’s inability to stay in tune.

.

.

.

Tell us your thought on quality and quantity for the release of songs.

I think both are important. However, for me personally, quality is more important than quantity. I would be so unhappy if I would have to release something I am not 100% satisfied with. Of course, an artist shouldn’t be too slow either. Nowadays it is very important to regularly release new music…otherwise you can soon be forgotten.

.

.

.

Tell us your viewpoint on comparing music career to non-music career.

In most non-music jobs, you get your monthly salary and you know what to expect. Being a musician means that you never know what happens next. On the one hand, this is kind of exciting because no day is like the other, but on the other hand, it can also be very frustrating and even scary, because…well, you never know that is going to happen or NOT happen next…

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on categorizing music into genres and sub-genres. 

Well, of course, it is useful to categorize music, especially when it comes to playlists. I wouldn’t want to have heavy metal songs in my favourite playlists.

 

However, I ask questions like “how would you describe your music”. I always say “Listen to it, and then you know it.”

.

.

.

 

State the genre you despise most with reason.

Heavy metal…Reason – I just cannot stand the electric guitar sounds, the beats, and the voices. I cannot listen to a heavy metal band for more than two minutes.

.

.

.

List your five favourite movies with reasons.

Dirty Dancing: I’ve seen it about ten times and it just reminds me of my childhood.

 

Seven Pounds: It’ so sad, but so good – I couldn’t stop crying while watching it.

 

Friends: It’s not a film but a sitcom. It’s just so funny!

 

American Horror Story: Also not a movie, but a TV series: It’s really brutal but so thrilling! I couldn’t stop watching it.

 

German comedies: I love most of them. Especially films produced by Mathias Schweighöfer or Til Schwaiger.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

It’s called RICH. However, the song does not deal with her wearing “bling-bling” or having a big house and money in her pockets. In the song, KTEE celebrates her personal moments of happiness with the realization that “being rich” can have a lot of different meanings.

 

We are constantly told what we need to own in order to be happy and we are blinded by all of the things that we are supposed to have while being too blind to see what is right in front of us.

 

People tend to focus on things they cannot have instead of seeing and valuing the little joyful moments in their lives – the smile of a friend, a warm summer evening, making music, etc. “I am rich when I feel alive” – says KTEE and encourages young people to value the moments in their lives that do not cost a thing.
