Sntmag:When you decide it’s time to make a new record, is that more exciting or stressful?
Ans: I would say its little bit of both, I love the writing and recording process, but it definitely stressful especially when you’re working for a deadline.
Sntmag: How easily do songs tend to come to you?
Ans : I will usually go about my day and see or hear something that sparks my creativity. Once that happens the words and music kind of just start to flow.
Sntmag: What is you favorite song to belt out at the bar/in the car?
ANs: I am a huge fan of Panic! At the Disco. Brendon Urie is one of the dopest song writers. I sing “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” on a regular basis at full volume.
Sntmag: For our readers who have never heard your music, explain your sound in 5 words?
Ans: I would have to say Fun, Exciting, Sometimes sad or deep, but always a good time. Is that good?
Sntmag: You write all of your own music; where do you draw inspiration from when you write songs and what’s your favorite part about the proccess?
ANS: So I used to write a lot of comedy music for my youtube channel. I think comedy has always kind of been a defense mechanism for myself because if people are laughing then I don’t have to take things as seriously. Recently my writing has gotten a lot more serious which feels really good, I almost felt like I broke down a wall within myself. I draw inspiration from the way I’m feeling as well as past experiences. I’m definitely a sensitive guy and may have cried once or twice writing a few songs. I think my favorite part is the feeling when I know I’ve captured an emotion in song.
Sntmag: At what age did you start singing?
ANS: I used to record myself singing on an old tape recorder my parents had lying around the house, i must have been 9 or 10 at the time.
Sntmag:Who are your inspirations?
Ans: My mother is a huge inspiration for me. I was a pain in the ass as a kid. I never wanted to pay attention in school and my parents would regularly get called in because of something I did or didn’t do. My mom never once gave up on me.
Sntmag:Do you have any events coming up or recording going on right now?
Ans: I am currently working on a new Ep, I don’t have a title for it yet but the couple songs I have finished are some of my best work.
Sntmag:Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to sing as a career or just advice about careers in general?
Ans : Never give up. When you tell people “I want to be a musician.” a lot of people shrug it off and say its a pipe dream or something that can’t be accomplished. While it may take years to get there it is going to feel so much better when you can prove those people wrong and say you climbed that mountain.
Sntmag: Describe your first instrument. Other instruments.
Ans: My first instrument was an acoustic guitar that I got for Christmas when I was like 13. I didn’t even know how to play it and I definitely held it wrong when I strummed the strings. That has been the single greatest gift I have ever received. I can now play a little bit of everything.
Thanks for taking time out of your day:)
