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 them 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.

Tell us what has changed in the music industry.
There are a lot more tools for independent artists now than before.

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

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

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.
