Richard – Unstable [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words


Tell us a few things about your new song. What is the story behind it.

I wrote this song after the deathof my brother and it’s impact it hadon my life. With grief sometimes we ebb and flow in and out of being able to handle it and other times it getting the best of us. I wanted the lyrics and beat to reflect that pendulum of an emotiona roller coaster not only grief sends us on, but also just general things in life especailly early trauma.

For which lyric you are most proud of?

“Don’t do shit straight, not even date”, this line lets people know yeah I am this and that, but I can spit too

Favourite album of the past decade?

Ooooooo fav album would be probably Ctrl by SZA I play that thing everyday still

What would you change in the music industry?

The perception that queer men have something to offer and can be just as creative and lyrical. Also, I would like to change the ways music is released nowadays, I feel like artists do not give fans enough time nowadays to let music saturate and digest. Even people who used to dropalbums like every 3 years are not dropping one every year so I feel like the good stuff gets lost.

When not writing music, how do you spend your time?

When not writing music i I usually just be chillng with my spouseor doing something with my friends, I am social as a mofo

Future plans?

uhmmmm, I do want to recruit artists and make my label bigger, maybe some small initimate tour to support my record coming in the fall, surpass 100k streams collectively, defintely moving to Seattle soon get establshed in that area, and learn guitar too. I ben playng paino for the last couple of months and my skills n that are definitely getting better. I want to be a multi instrumentalist

Thank you!
