What does music mean to you?
Music is my way of feeling things that I can’t normally express in words.
Which band or artist inspired you to become a musician?
There’s not one particular band or artist that influenced me, I grew up in the middle of the punk rock era. I listened to bands such as; Linkin Park, Rise Against, Taking Back Sunday, and Blink 182. When I found Dr Dre, he influenced me to produce production as an artist; I’ve always looked up to him as a producer/artist.
What are your top five albums of all time?
“Tell All Your Friends” – Taking Back Sunday, “Siren Song Of The Counterculture” – Rise Against, “Homesick”- A Day To Remember, “Life’s Not Out To Get You” -Neck Deep, “The Chronic 2011” – Dr Dre.
If you had to pick another music genre to play, what would it be?
What projects are you currently on or will be working on in the future?
I am currently producing an album for D’Lannie Sky, and I’m constantly working on music for my debut album. New music will be released this year in 2018.
Is there an instrument you don’t know how to play but would like to?
I would love to learn how to play the violin, which is hands down the most beautiful instrument ever made.
What are you currently listening to?
“That’s The Spirit” By – Bring Me The Horizon.
What’s the one thing that inspires you to keep creating and playing music?
No matter what happens in life, everything is constantly growing and changing. I feel like what I create will always grow and change as well.
What can you tell me about your sound and how it was created?
I started writing acoustically to get the right feel for the songs. I was lucky enough to work with some really talented producers that could make my sound into a full production. My sound has always had a heavy alternative and hip-hop influence.
Describe for me your music making process?
I usually start off with making a basic drum track with a set of chords, and from there I really like to focus on developing the right concept for the music. Writing has always been the most important part of the process for me.
