Describe your sound in 3 words
Funky, Authentic, Cool
Tell us a few things about your new song. What is the main idea behind it?
“ Champagne Dreams” came about via instagram.
I connected with Sally on IG and we thought it would be cool to do a track together. It worked out well!
We co-wrote the track flipping ideas back and forth on lyrics, melody and structure.
Marcus Phillips handled music + production.
Sally was on vocal production
I don’t know if we started out with a main idea behind it.
The song just came together so naturally piece by piece and the end result was something funky, fresh, fun and fierce.
Which is your most personal and honest lyric?
“Forget them haters, let them concentrate on everything we are and everything they ain’t !“
What do you enjoy most? Writing music or performing your music live?
I go through phases.
I did so much writing during the pandemic, it actually helped me level up creatively and concentrate on ideas I hadn’t been able to fully devote time to while being out and about doing live performances. A break from the stage had some positives but, I believe all artists need that energy jolt they get from their people up close and personal. It is good that the performances are starting up again. I missed that.
You also have lovely grooves. Tell us a song with a groove you wish you had composed yourself.
Marcus Phillips is thank for the groove on “Champagne Dreams” Fabulous Musician / Producer!
Hmmmm a track I wish I would of composed myself?
No Idea… there a lot of dope songs out there!
Anything Prince or MJ lol 🙂
In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?
Open, Free, conscious , happy, depends on the song really.
There is always a message so to listen with an open ear is a good start, some listen to music to get into the right state of mind.
One last thing we should know about you?
I have a few other original projects if you’d like to check them out, NOVI, The Electric Soul Syndicate, and Mion Nite to name some.They each have their own soul…
