Ethan Marino – Lemon Drop [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

In three words I would describe my sound as sweet, engaging, and fulfilling.

Pop, hip hop and jazz elements. How do all these fit together? Tell us a few things about your creative process.

In my latest single “Lemon Drop” these three elements are perfectly woven together. My pop-influenced vocals mesh perfectly with the hip-hop drums and Jazzy lead guitar line. This brings the mainstream sound with an unpredictable feel. My creative process mirrors this with my pop and hip hop influence I tend to fond ways to make it different and unpredictable.

What is the main topic of your lyrics?

Lemon Drop is a stream of consciousness freestyle of my thought process of figuring out how I feel about a certain situation.

Your music has an uplifting vibe. In which state of mind do you imagine people listen to your music?

Lemon Drop is definitely an uplifting song but within it are some “forks in the road” that provoke the listener to think about how these situations and decisions could or have been applied to their life. Most people listen to Lemon Drop when they are chilling or falling in love. A lot of my other music has been about tough and sad situations so my music appeals to many different types of people.

Favorite song you did listen to this summer?

My favorite song this summer has been Ruthless by Midxwst.

Favorite music related film?

I love the perfect pitch movies.

Future plans?

As we keep growing my main goal is to build a massive community of people who know to use love in all of their interactions and don’t worry about things they can’t control and build a happy and loving world together. My company “Dead To The World LLC.” owns a recording studio and concert venue in Bradenton Florida. We use this space for artist development. My overall goal with this is to have a Dead To The World Headquarters in every city where any kid that wants to be in entertainment can go and get everything they need to put them in a position to be the most successful and positive with their career.

Thank you!
