Fer Guinea – Moment In Time [Interview]

Tell us a few things about your new song “Moment In Time”. What is the story behind it?

Moment in time is about meditation. It is about the place I go to, when I meditate
A place where everything disappears and I am all by myself, living in the moment.
It is about getting to a state of peace, beauty and pure love.

How would you describe your musical progress over time?

My musical progress started with my study of jazz, thanks to it, I was able to further my understanding of music. After that, I studied production and modern music which gave me the tools to produce and compose every instrument section in my music. And finally my life experiences and listening to different genres has expanded my music universe.

What first got you into music?

I was into music since I can remember, I got my first keyboard at 7 and I was singing in the choir so music has always been a part of me.

Favourite album of the past year?

Favorite album of 2020 would be ‘It is what is is’ by Thundercat and ‘ Restless as we are’ by Talk black guy. I just love their vibe and I can’t stop listening to them.

What would you change in the music industry?

The music industry is a very complex machine and it can be overwhelming, what I would change is more support for starting artists and to stop focusing everything on social media. There are a lot of talented musicians and artists that have low following and it is very hard to be heard and to grow. So I guess that would be what I would change.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

The best advice I’ve been given is to trust the universe and all it brings to you

You’d give up making music for…

That is a hard question, I don’t think I would give up music. Music is the love of my life, it’s always been there for me and it is the most powerful thing there is in this world.
Music heals, it is a time machine, it unites people and it’s everywhere if you listen.

Thank you!

Fer Guinea – Tryna get some [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

My sound is smooth, sensual and feminine

Tell us a few things about your new song “Tryna get some”. What is the story behind it?

Tryna get some is about opening the doors of your soul to someone with whom you share a deep spiritual connection. I wanted the beat to reflect sensuality and the strings to illustrate beauty. I wished to create through this track the journey that it is to fall in love.

For which lyric you are most proud of ?

I think I am always proud at the end of every song I write just because of it coming to life, every lyric I write is just a part of who I am.

What do you enjoy most? Writing music or performing your music live?

I am simply in love with the whole process, from writing to performing. I take great pleasure in each of these fields because it is deeply linked to creation.
Writing is much more of an internal exercise which allows me to express myself through music which is priceless; whereas performing is an outward process which allows me to connect with an audience and improvise on the spot and that is immeasurably special to me.

Your song has a very cool chill groove. Tell us a song with a groove you wish you had composed yourself.

I absolutely Dig minimalistic grooves. I would say that the simplicity but yet fullness of Lady From D’Angelo is the song I wish I would have made myself. The bassline is just divine !

Which book should we read while listening to your music ?

To be perfectly honest, I would not necessarily recommend to read a book while listening to my music but surely to roll a nice joint and relax hahaha

Should we expect an album in the near future?

The answer is yes ! Always expect more music, I can’t stop creating. There is a lot more music coming in the future, I have an EP finished which “Tryna get some” comes from and an album is already in the writing. As long as I’m still here I will always make music.

Thank you!
