Tom Orlando – On Repeat [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Vibrant, Atmospheric & Unique

This is your first attempt to try a more melodic flow. Tell us a few things about this track.

I have always wanted to be a singer. I have been makign hip hop music for almost 7 years! I decided to attempt making a track in which I showcase a different side of me, one that I wanted to explore for quite sometime! The song was written as a freestyle! Completely off the cut.

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

I have always wanted to collaborate with multiple artists and have been attempting to for years! Unfortunately I have had some terrible experiences which have caused me to take a step back and focus on building myself as an artist. I will say however, I have worked with talented artists and there is a brand new song coming soon with this artist! I love the process of my songwriting. Being able to be locked in my room and focus on writing out my feelings on paper is everything I could of ever wanted!

Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?

I have to say that one artist who has truly been an inspiration was B.o.B. I love it when artists do not stick to a single sound or genre. That is what I inspire to do. One of my projects will get you in your feelings, One will get you dancing, One will have you vibing, cruising through the night. That is the goal.

On Repeat is very chill. In which state of mind do you imagine people may listen to your music?

Definitely can see it played while chilling at a BBQ, On the beach, or a simple party. I believe the song performs best in those avenues!

What advice would you give to your younger self?

I would tell myself to have given it my all. I am greatful at the place I am in my career in the moment however, there is no doubt in my mind I could of already been a mainstream act if I had really dedicated my full time into my craft. Not to allow myself to waste time, play games and procrastinate.

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?

For legal reasons, I cannot tell you lol however I have definitely done some crazy things in my life that I am not proud of but it has given me opportunities to grow into a better man.

Thank you!
