Bekim! – Close Your Eyes [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

R&B, timeless, catchy

In Close Your Eyes you blend acoustic sounds with a classic rnb beat. Tell us a few things about your new ballad.

I love 90s and 00s R&B and also 50s and 60s ballads. So I tried to combine that retro 90s sound with 50s Rock ‘n’ Roll ballads. Although I have been born in 1970 I always loved listening to records from that era. And I think all these influences can be heard in my new single.

Do you like the idea of collaborating? Is songwriting a lonely process?

I do like the idea of collaborating. But it is always a matter of finding an artist you get on well with. Although songwriting is a lonely process, it’s liberating and fulfilling, at least for me

Favourite album of all time?

2Pac – All Eyes On Me

What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?

Finding good singers that really fit your style.

In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?

When they are in love and grateful for that love.

Future plans?

I am working on new songs. My next song will be kind of New Jack Swing Hip Hop R&B. Although R&B has become a niche and not many people listen to this genre, I hope this will change eventually.

Thank you!
