Tell us your opinion on creativity and originality.

Creativity and originality are both very broad terms.

 

To me, being creative really means searching for inspiration. Therefore, I strongly believe that we all have huge creative potential and expand it in many different ways whether this may be by creating music, painting, speaking, writing…

 

In regards to originality, I feel the will to take risks and ignore doubts, as well as self-discovery, are extremely important.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the beginning of your passion for music.

I started taking piano lessons at the age of 7. However, it was not until I was 12 years old when I picked up the first guitar that I truly fell in love with music.

 

Guitar and listening to music, in general, were both huge parts of my teenage years and upbringing. I remember going to my room each day after school and listening to some of the classic records my father had given me at the time. Even though singing and the idea of writing songs had always been in the back of my mind, I only started taking vocal lessons at the age of 15 and wrote my first song two years after that.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you make sure the quality of your sound is high.

I have been lucky enough to work with some amazing producers and sound engineers over the years. In fact, this has definitely taught me a lot about sound and production in general. Being a very picky individual and a perfectionist when it comes to my work, I spend a lot of time in the studio nit-picking mixes and sessions in order to ensure that I not only release high-quality content but also a product I feel very strongly and positive about.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you get ideas to develop your songs.

Ideas usually tend to come to me late at night while strumming away on guitar and reflecting on certain things/personal experiences. Most of the time, I tend to quickly map out the type of instrumentation and specific melodic movements that I foresee.

.

.

.

Describe your vocal ability.

In terms of vocal ability, I consider myself more of a singer-songwriter and to have found my own voice if that makes some type of sense.

.

.

.

Tell us how you develop the instrumentation for this song.

I first recorded the demo for this track with my older brother Theo in our little home studio. We worked out the type of instrumentation and production we wanted to go for in order to have a strong reference before fully producing the song and tracking it with a live band. I was then lucky enough to have some amazing session players who really helped to bring this track to life. Furthermore, we also spent a fair amount of time messing around with lots of vintage synths in the studio in order to create the atmospheric and ambient spectrum of this song.

.

.

.

 

State five hit songs and name the artists.

Somebody That I Used To Know – Gotye

 

Riptide – Vance Joy

 

Like a Rolling Stone – Bob Dylan

 

I Can’t Get No Satisfaction – Rolling Stones

 

Shape of You – Ed Sheeran

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you entertain the audience during a live performance.

I’ve been extremely lucky to share the stage with some amazing musicians over the last few years; therefore they definitely make my job a whole lot easier in regards to keeping the crowd entertained. Additionally, as well as comprising of a strong set list, things such as call and response and inviting fans to come and sing a song with us is something the audience have to enjoy a lot also.

.

.

.

List the name of artists that have a similar sound to yours.

The Paper Kites, Josh Garrels, Bon Iver.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you think your music is impacting your fans.

I have been extremely touched by some of the responses I have gotten from some of the fans mentioning that my music had helped them get through depression, helped them get over a break-up or even motivated them to chase their dreams. And that’s truly what it is all about.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what inspires you to sing.

I simply get a certain type of joy and fulfillment from singing and playing the music that I haven’t yet been able to find elsewhere.

.

.

.

 

Discuss this song.

I wrote this song about four years ago while traveling alone and missing home and my close ones. I remember sitting at the desk of this small hotel room I was staying at the time and pulling an all-nighter writing ‘Won’t Let Go’. Therefore, this song is primarily based on the idea of missing something so close to your heart that you know you’ll never really be able to let go off no matter how far away you may be.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how you develop your melody.

The melody for this song first originated on guitar. I remember having the primary guitar parts down rather quickly and playing them over and over again until vocal melodies started to come out and make sense.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you master your songs after production.

Lately, I have been sending most of my songs to the extremely talented “Joe Laporta” over at Sterling Sounds.

.

.

.

Discuss how you get your songs to digital stores.

This first EP was self-released and I went through Tunecore.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how to generate income through music.

These days with the digital world there is no doubt it is extremely challenging to generate adequate income as an independent artist; however live shows and merchandising are both great ways of generating revenue.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your piece of advice to a new artist.

To never give up.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite radio station.

I actually don’t listen to much radio these days, but if I had to mention one from the top of my head I would have to say BBC Radio.

State your reason for choosing music as a career. 

I have tried other things before. Actually, I have a Master in Public international Law, and I have done a few law-related internships.

 

But to be fair, I have always wanted to do music, and I guess none of the other things I’ve done have made me as happy.

.

.

.

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.

It really varies. I don’t really have a process. It usually comes when inspiration comes.

 

I always have the music ready before the lyrics, so sometimes I do struggle and try to push myself to write these missing lyrics, but it doesn’t seem to work well that way for me.

Lake Folks presents to you his new single ‘Astronaut’ that was released on February 26th 2019 (music video coming out) …

 

The song talks about an imaginary love story between the author and an astronaut.

 

The music keeps the light atmosphere set by the lyrics and brings spring to the steps of its listeners with its upbeat and light-hearted atmosphere. A warm feel emanates from the acoustic arrangements and softly sung lyrics. A feel good moment!

 

Lake Folks is an indie-folk artist from France, whose music varies between delicate guitar-voice folk to some more Americana-flavoured pieces.

 

You may find through his music accents of Ben Howard, Bob Dylan, Villagers or Mumford and Sons.

 

Lake Folks started as a solo project with the release of his first EP in July 2017.

 

His single ‘The Old Man and the Lake’ was well received on social media and music blogs, notably branded as the ‘new folk gem’ by LesInrocks TV. It allowed Lake Folks to tour in France and abroad, placing him in the Top 100 of the prestigious French music contest Tremplin Ricard S.A Live Music, and allowing him to receive a grant from the French PRS (SACEM) for his EP.

 

After this, Lake Folks decided to move to London in 2018 to broaden his musical horizon.

 

After a few months of settling in the London music scene, he got back to studio with a full band this time to record his second EP ‘Someone else’s dreams’ that will be released in March 2019.

.

.

.

Discuss your life outside the music world.

Currently, I’m living in London, and I work in small coffee shop as barista part-time and as a French private tutor.

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

Well I started music a long time ago, when I was around 5, by playing the piano.

 

Later on, I decided to learn the guitar and really started singing when we started a band with a few friends at high school called “C.O.D.E.”, with whom I released my first ever EP.

 

But Lake Folks really started as I was living abroad, without my musician friends, and that I had no other choice than to compose and write music by myself.

 

When I decided I wanted to focus on music and put aside what I had studied for, I came back to my parents to record and release my first EP in July 2017.

 

My main title ‘The Old Man and the Lake’ was well received on social media and music blogs, notably branded as the ‘new folk gem’ by LesInrocks TV.

 

But then after some time, I realized that, being in the countryside, it would be hard for me to get much further, which is why I decided to move to London to meet more musicians and have more opportunities.

 

All the encounters I had since I came to London in February 2018, about a year ago, led to this new EP I’m currently releasing.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name.

I come from the French Alps, and in my region there are quite a few big and beautiful lakes, including in my home town (the ‘lac du Bourget’). This type of landscape has always been very inspiring, so this is why I thought it would make sense to include it in my stage name. It’s also a pun with ‘folk’ as I’m playing folk music. But yes it comes from me literally being a person from the lake.

 

Regarding the ‘s’ to Folks, I had it because when I started it, I thought it was going to become a band project as soon as I would go back home. It didn’t happen and I have been ‘Lake Folks’ whilst being alone for a long time.

 

But now it’s making sense again as I’m going to be performing with a band most of the time with the new EP being recorded that way.

.

.

.

List your five favourite music videos with reasons.

Lotus Flower by Radiohead: Just really beautiful, with Thom Yorke crazy dancing – which seems to fit so well with his personality.

 

Kings of Convenience – I’d Rather Dance With You: Love this band, and this video just shows how they don’t take themselves too seriously, which the exact same feeling as when you see them perform live.

 

Runnin’ by Naughty Boy: Not really the kind of music I listen to but this performance which was actually shot without after effects is quite amazing.

 

Tilted by Christine and the Queens: I guess I must like dancing in videos. But not only the dancing is really beautiful, but the way it’s shot with the colors is beautiful as well. If you have seen her live, you know that this is only a glimpse of what she can do.

 

All the Pretty Girls – KALEO: I’m a bit of a romantic, and again, escapism and all these hippy naked swimming in lakes, or drinking with your friends around a fire lost in the nature, are all very inspiring images to me. I know it’s a bit of an easy cheesy feel good video, but still like it. I like the colors as well.

.

.

.

Tell us your source of inspiration.

It varies a lot… it can be very personal situations that happen to me and that inspire me to write a song ; it can be some story that I see in the news or in a movie which may inspire me to write my own story about it; it can be traveling, as escapism is definitely an inspiration to me.

.

.

.

Tell us your experience on dealing with fans.

I don’t currently have a big enough fan base for me to be bothered by any fan. It’s always a pleasure if someone reaches out to me that they like my music. It’s a healthy reminder of what we’re doing this for!

.

.

.

Elaborate on the recording of this song.

Unlike my first EP which was more acoustic, and in which I played most of the instruments, here the process was pretty different.

 

Indeed, we entered the studio as a band and made some ‘live’ recordings of every song, which gives it definitely a different sound!

 

Also, the conditions were more professional than with my first EP where it was quite ‘homemade’ with a friend, whilst here we did it at Mattison Studio which is a great place for any emerging artist in London!

.

.

.

Tell us your future projects. 

Well, there’s still some work to be done to prepare the release of the single and the EP. And when this is out, I’ll see where this is taking me. I would like to do some touring to promote the EP.

 

Otherwise, keep going, writing new songs, maybe playing with new artists. I may have a collaborative album on which I’ve worked last year coming out at some point as well, so that could be interesting as well!

.

.

.

 

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

Of course, my family, my friends, nothing too original. But I’m sure the people concerned know who they are without me citing their name.

.

.

.

Tell us your point of view on vocal tuning.

I think that everybody has got so used nowadays to hearing only pitch perfect singing on every tune they’re listening to, that this is what has led a lot of people to use it.

 

I can’t really judge people who use it a lot, I mean it’s only one of the many tools that is used to make music nowadays.

 

Most of the instruments you hear are being modified to a certain extent, so why is it more chocking with the voice, I don’t know.

 

But then I’m the kind of person who’s going to listen to artists that may not sing perfectly on pitch (Neil Young, Elliot Smith, etc.) so I think it gives a certain charm to it, and makes it more ‘humane’, a bit more real.

.

.

.

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

If you’re referring to how most emerging artists nowadays release singles, I have to say I’m not a big fan of that..

 

I do get the point on how it’s much easier to produce one song at a time, and also it has a strong case in terms of creating more attention.

 

But, maybe I’m a bit old fashion, but I like songs being tied together on an EP or an album. Especially if they were written around the same time, recorded together, it does give a better ‘picture’ of where you were at when making the EP.

 

Also, when it comes to ‘quality’ as mentioned, the fact of releasing only singles makes artist produce only songs that can stand alone, only ‘hit’ songs, which I think is a bit sad because a lot of my favorite songs from other artists aren’t songs that could have been singles, but they make sense as part of the album and are beautiful as such.

.

.

.

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

Most people say how music career is very challenging, but they also think ‘oh but it’s your passion so it can’t be that hard, you’re basically having fun all the time’ – Which is not really true.

 

Trying to make it as a singer-songwriter (which is a bit different from working as musician in general) is so challenging, it requires a lot of sacrifices, a lot of work, creates so much uncertainty, questioning your choices, your talent, having to get a ‘small job’ alongside, etc.

 

So yes it’s definitely different from my other experiences of being in an office all day.

 

But then I can’t complain about it, because it makes me much happier than being in an office all because it is my passion and what drives me after all.

 

However, I guess music is not the only career where everything I’ve just said is true too.

.

.

.

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

I think it makes sense and does not make sense…It makes sense as when you give a name of genre, you can have a rough idea of what you’re going to listen to.

 

But then, there are so many genres and sub-genres nowadays, which are mostly dictated by Spotify playlist and such things I think, that it is very hard to know exactly what they all mean.

 

I have myself a very hard time defining my own music according to genres or sub-genres.

.

.

.

State the genre you despise most with reason.

I can’t ‘despise’ a genre. I think every genre has its place in the music world.

 

I could say that I don’t like ‘indie’ to be considered a genre because it really doesn’t mean much, but then again, if you say you’re doing ‘indie’ music, people still have a rough idea of how it’s going to be so, I guess I’m wrong..

.

.

.

List your five favourite movies with reasons.

The Departed by Martin Scorsese: such a great and clever movie with amazing actors!

 

The Grand Budapest Hotel by Wes Anderson: big fan of Wes Anderson, love the way it’s shot with the colors and symmetry, and obviously the humor found in his movies.

 

O Brother, Where Art Thou? by Coen Brothers: again, big fan of the Coen Brothers and their humour, of the far west atmosphere. Also the music in this movie is amazing.

 

Cold War by Paweł Pawlikowski: one of the latest movies I’ve watched. It’s a little black and white gem, in Polish. Not your usual love story, but so touching. Loved it!

 

The Lord of the Rings: a classic. I love just going to the movies and be transported to a different universe like this!

.

.

.

State the title of the song and the meaning.

The single that I’ve just release in which will be in my EP is ‘Astronaut’.

 

So the song talks about an imaginary love relationship with an astronaut (Spoiler: this isn’t a true story).

 

I actually wrote this as I was starting to see a girl, and I watched the movie ‘Gravity’; the mix of both has apparently been very inspiring.

.

.

.

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

The EP is called ‘Someone Else’s Dreams’ which is the title of the last song of the EP, and which reflects how I’m slowly getting used to the fact that it’s okay for me to pursue a career as a musician, and that I can stop trying to follow dreams that society put in my head (having a stable job, earning lots of money, settling, etc.) because they are not my dreams.

Adam Wendler is an independent Folk Pop artist from Ontario, Canada, currently based in Berlin, Germany.  Ever since picking up the guitar at the age of 15, Adam has been writing songs, dedicated to sharing his music with the world. His extensive travels and experiences provide inspiration for his musical compilations.

 

‘All or Nothing’ (2018) is Adam’s 3rd solo record, following ‘Never Go Unknown’ (2017) and ‘A Forward Moving Motion’ (2016). Adam has toured Germany and Canada extensively, with venues ranging from intimate settings to festivals including Open Flair. In 2017 Adam was also announced winner of the radioeins contest ‘The Next Big Thing’ in Berlin, where his song ‘The Flame’ was chosen out of 850 other contestants, leading to radio play on radioeins, one of Berlin’s major radio stations. Since then Adam has won several other contests including the ‘S4TP Newcomer Contest’, the ‘Neukölln Songslam’ and the ‘Steglitzer Kleinkunstpreis’.

 

On ‘All or Nothing’ Adam has improved by leaps and bounds, showcasing his ability to write great songs. He tells heartfelt stories of personal endeavours and experiences inspired by his upbringing on Lake Huron and life on the road. His new album is packed with catchy melodies; soul felt lyrics and soaring vocal harmonies. It displays Adam’s unique guitar playing style that is reminiscent of the 1960’s, yet has a distinctive modern feel.

 

At only 26 years old Adam has independently released three solo records as well as three albums with his former band ‘Fermented Oranges’. He has put out 10 official music videos, numerous live videos and toured across the world. Adam’s dedication is second to none and he is committed to taking his music as far as it can go.

State your reason for choosing music as a career.

There is nothing I enjoy doing more than writing and performing music so it makes sense to put my energy in it and do it full time.

.

.

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.

I tend to draw inspiration from all sorts of different places and songs always come together in a different way. Most often, I come up with chords first, then a melody and then write the lyrics. In the case of “All or Nothing”, when I started playing the chords it made me think of a road trip, or life on the road. That led to writing the verses and gave me the feeling of struggle and accomplishment. This led to the chorus, and then the song really started coming together.

“ADAM WENDLER’s ‘All Or Nothing’ is a folk-pop extravaganza, where the colors of the roads long traveled, come to life within our affection for the inner child within us. The ‘letting go’ of our senses, often is needed, to kick start our cemented notions of what IS and what SHOULD BE. New directions need bold decisions. That first step starts with that ‘first heart beat’ towards that goal. ‘All Or Nothing’ is an inspirational single that is easy to like and perfect for those days that are very hard. Adam’s cheering for you. ” — Come here Floyd

 

“‘All or Nothing’ is the welcomingly infectious single from the brilliant Canadian artist Adam Wendler. Indie-Folk-Pop in genre, this single is a catchy heartfelt look into life and love which is relatable by all. The single starts with stripped back vocals and an acoustic guitar which reiterates the Country-Folk feel. The acoustic guitar is played extremely well with a fingerpicking style that is blissful. ‘All or Nothing’ is the type of song which would stand alone with no other instrumentation needed. An acoustic version would be superb but the track is further enhanced as the other instruments kick in. We hear a kicked drum which is strong and stable in its rhythm, always dependable and feels like the heartbeat of the song. The chorus is catchy and is further enhanced by the double-tracked vocals which give emphasis to the well-constructed heartfelt lyrics. We also hear a bass, a tambourine, and high hats. These are accompaniments which are used in perfect measure, never intrusive and always accompanying the main stars: the guitars and vocals. The song strips back for an instrumental accompanied by ‘Oooohs’, it then builds back up slowly for a catchy chorus which will be suck in your head all day! Wendler’s voice is simply magical. The amount of feeling, tone, and heart he is able to portray is really special. Wendler reminds us of Neil Young on this single. There are some gorgeous lyrics on the song too, ‘It’s not much but it’s everything to me”, is a heartbreakingly gorgeous lyric that strikes to the heart of the song. His cadences are well thought out and his phrasing is on the money every time. The delivery is vulnerable, warm and heartfelt in equal measures. Wendler’s writing has reminiscent elements and his fingerpicking guitar style also takes in influences but it is unmistakably Adam Wendler. We were also incredibly impressed with the production of ‘All or Nothing’. The mix, production, and mastering are of an incredibly high standard. The overall sound is crisp yet warm with many luscious tones in between. In 2017 Wendler won ‘The Next Big Thing’ (radioeins) and ‘Songslam Neukölln’ (Berlin), with a single as strong as ‘All or nothing’ it is easy to see why! Do not delay, check out this exciting artist today!” — FVReviews

 

“The artist opens up the song with the lyrics “we’re cold and we’re broken. Lost in the wide open; so far from the way we used to be” accompanied by a hopeless-sounding guitar. Based off those lyrics, it’s safe to assume the track will summarize how lost the artist is in the world; however, he does the complete opposite. Accompanied by rich harmonies, the artist sings “it’s been a long time coming and I’ve had my doubts. Gotta keep on running. It’s all or nothing now.” He continues to talk about how he makes-do with what he has and how “there’s no place” he’d “rather be.” It’s a song that will reassure and restore hope in any listener in the form of a catchy tune.” — Tongue Tied Magazine

Discuss your life outside the music world.

I grew up in Goderich, Ontario, Canada. It’s a fairly small town located on Lake Huron.  I was always really in to swimming, and being on the water in general. I like to go stand up paddle boarding and canoeing.

 

After finishing high school, I did a lot of travelling and still do. I love meeting new people and seeing new places. I spent a lot of time in New Zealand, where I met my girlfriend, which led me to Germany.

 

I’m now living in Potsdam, Germany pursuing music and having a good time while I’m at it.

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

I have released three solo albums in the past few years and have done tours in Germany and Canada. I’ve been trying to play as much as possible while also writing and releasing my songs regularly. Last year was a pretty big one, and I managed to release a lot of new music videos and a brand new album.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name.

My artist name is my real birth name. I decided to go with my real name for a couple reasons. I always want to make sure my music is totally genuine and comes from me, how I want it to sound. It seemed logical to use my real name as it adequately stands for the music I put out. I also think it simply has a good ring to it.

.

.

.

List your five favourite music videos with reasons.

Thriller – Michael Jackson, Take Me To Church – Hozier, Smells Like Teen Spirit – Nirvana, Shape of You – Ed Sheeran, Stan – Eminem.

 

I like all of them for a variety of reasons. Some have humour, some have provided a deeper symbolic meaning, and some are just raw emotion put to video. One thing in common with all of these videos is that I don’t want them to end.

.

.

.

Tell us your source of inspiration.

I get my inspiration from a lot of different places. Much of it comes from travelling and personal experiences but current social or political events also inspire me. Sometimes just reading a good book or watching a good movie is enough to inspire a song.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your experience on dealing with fans.

My experience with fans has been really positive. I always meet with them after I play a concert and generally get really good feedback. I love to meet with anybody who wants to talk but sometimes it can be difficult to stop one conversation and move on to the next one to give everybody a turn.

.

.

.

Elaborate on the recording of this song.

“All or Nothing” was recorded at the Red Bull studios in Auckland, New Zealand. A good kiwi friend of mine rigged up the recording session while I was in Germany. He said he could get a session put together there and asked if I wanted to do it.

 

The production is fairly stripped down with just a few layers on it. I wanted it to sound close to how I play it live.

.

.

.

Tell us your future projects.

I plan on releasing another album this year, along with more music videos and more collaborations.

.

.

.

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

Spinnup, Radio Eins, My friends and family, all the venues and festivals I have played at, producers I have worked with and many more!

.

.

.

Tell us your point of view on vocal tuning.

I think vocal tuning is a very useful tool when done correctly. In some genres of music the style is to have a completely full auto-tune effect, and in other styles vocal tuning is used just to put the singer in the proper pitch. Both are valid uses. However, in some genres, sometimes the vocals don’t need to sound totally perfect and over perfecting the production can take away from the feeling.

.

.

.

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

I think it’s important to have both. Quality is really subjective, so in my opinion, as long as the artist is happy with how his song sounds, then he may as well release it…

.

.

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

Pursuing a music career can be very difficult. It lacks security and stability, but it is full of reward. Whereas a career with steady work hours and an hourly wage allows one to make financial plans more easily, and have a more stress-free lifestyle. It all depends what you want out of life.

 

In my case, I love making music more than anything else, and I’m willing to find a way to make it work and bring my music to people who want to hear it. It’s all worthwhile when you play a concert and you can feel the energy of the crowd and know that people are right there with you loving the music and the vibe you are providing.

.

.

.

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

I think categorizing music into genres and sub-genres is really useful in the digital age we are in. There is so much music being produced and released, so having it organized by genre makes sense. However, it is sometimes really difficult to put a name to a style of music, especially when it has many different genres blended in to it. In my opinion, this makes it harder for more experimental and less genre-specific styles to get attention.

.

.

.

State the genre you despise most with reason.

I wouldn’t say there is any genre that I despise. There are some songs I’m not fond of, but I don’t think I could say I dislike the entire genre they belong to.

.

.

.

List your five favourite movies with reasons.

The Shawshank Redemption, Catch Me if You Can, Forest Gump, The Departed and The Wolf of Wall Street.

 

I like these movies because they are all inspiring or motivating. I could watch all of them multiple times. They are all gripping, and have you hanging on the edge of your seat from start until finish.

.

.

.

State the title of the song and the meaning.

The song is called “All or Nothing”. It’s about being on a journey to get somewhere and going through all the bumps in the road on the way. It’s also about making the most of the situation you’re in, and enjoying the journey to get to a goal as much as enjoying reaching the goal itself.

.

.

.

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

The album is also called “All or Nothing”. I thought this title did the best job of summing up the album in its entirety. It is full of songs with different themes, but an underlying message is the concept of giving it your all to get to a goal and not taking ‘No’ for an answer.
