Describe your sound in 3 words
A mixture of sadness, triumph and experimentation.
Tell us a few things about your new song. What is the story behind it?
Birds having flown is about realizing my mortality. Knowing that I could go at any moment and asking for understanding and forgiveness for my past transgressions. This year, I lost some of my closest friends to suicide and freak accidents. These were people so full of life and ambition. These deaths made me realize more than ever that I could go at any time. Without warning. Recorded this on my ipad Pro, then sent it off to Grammy nominated engineer Beauvallis for mixing and mastering.
For which lyric you are most proud of?
I have a line where I say “Soul seeking but the reasoning was girls, how I changed it up so you could get the pearls, if I take it back then its an admission of guilt.” On this I realized how much of my life was about sex with women and how I used that to acknowledge my manhood and importance. I want the listener to learn from my experience that this is not a true route to happiness. And that I shouldn’t feel guilty for the things I did.
Favourite album of the past decade?
I have a few that I play on repeat but Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy would have to be number
What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?
The biggest challenge would be getting people to listen to my music. Everyone is attracted to the visuals and my persona but they dont take the time to listen to my music.
In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?
In any state of mind honestly. I have tracks for party for sex for driving for smoking, different things for different times.
You’d give up making music for…
I couldnt give up music for anything. Take my tongue, I will pen songs and make beats.
