In your latest single we can hear a piano centric instrumental uppon a downtempo rnb beat mixed with melodic vocals. Tell us a few things about it.
Yes, this song is produced by Oli of Temper Beats from the UK. This sound actually inspired my singing in the song. Its hypnotic and sensual yet mysterious and a little spooky.
What is your creative process like?
I usually record my music at 3AM when the world is a little less noisy and calmer. It helps with me accessing that part of the creative celestial wireless. I write my songs using a voice recorder on my phone then I write it out on a notepad and tweak it.
What first got you into music?
I used to write poetry for my classmates in elementary school. One day, a schoolmate asked if I would be interesting in writing a song for him to perform. He never performed it but it inspired me to start writing and performing.
Do you have an artist that you would describe as a hidden gem that we should know about?
There is a french artist called Flex. I really like his sound and his bravery.
Is Spotify the music industry’s new Gatekeepers?
Spotify is good for what its worth but I think they need to get better with paying artists their fair due. You could have a song with over 10k streams and get less than $2 for it. I still prefer selling physical copies.
Favorite film ever?
This is a very tough question to answer. I love movies. I am a cinemaphile. I really loved that new Batman movie but I am also a fan of The Room by Tommy Weiseau. I cannot just select one movie…
One last thing we should know about you?
Music is like therapy for me, I wish to make my music therapeutic for you and the listeners as well. I hope you will join me on this journey of sound. Follow me on Twitter @SigmaSXM
