I kinda isolated myself for little while just writing songs and I learnt a heap about who I really want to be as an artist. I also taught myself how to sing sort of okay too haha
I went to the studio one weekend and told myself I wasn’t leaving without a full song demo written. I couldn’t really tell you what it’s about, a girl maybe? I’ll let the listener decide! 🙂
I would usually start with very minimal production if I’m going to write lyrics on a track. I find it very difficult when I’ve thouroghly produced something to go back and write to it. Chords are usually the first thing I write and then I work on a bit of sound design to give it some flavour.
As modest a success as that may be, I’d probably thank my manager for that first and foremost. I was given a lot of creative freedom and was sleeping on his couch after just relocating to Melbourne from WA. I was only 19 at the time so my whole conception of creativity has changed a little bit from then on too.
I started producing when I was around 14. It came from just messing with computer software like Sony Vegas, Photoshop etc.. I then stumbled across Logic Pro and started to make some Hip-Hop and Dubstep type of sounds. Musically I was inspired by lots of things, but my first introduction to Electronica i really liked was from a video game called Mirror’s Edge. Eventually I upgraded to the mighty FL studio in 2012 and have been using that ever since. My manager is the the key person behind all of this too, I sent some demos to him when I was 17 and we’ve been working together ever since.
I’m not quite sure how the whole social media thing works really, everyone has a different approach to it I guess. The support I have had on YouTube channels such as MrSuicideSheep has been instrumental in exposing my music to wider audiences though which I am really appreciative of.
I first started playing instruments when I was really young so i can’t quite remember how it started for piano. For drums however, I sticky taped the left stick to my stump and hoped it didn’t fly off! I’ve tried playing guitar a few times but that didn’t quite work out as well as I’d hoped, I’ve seen other people like me play with their feet but that’s no where near as cool as holding it feeling like Keith Richards 😉
A lot of Mac Demarco, Frank Ocean and George Clanton. George is about to drop a new album so I’m super excited to hear it!
I’m hoping to start playing some shows and get the next few songs I have been working on released. I hope 2019 is going to be big for me.
Very soon I hope!
I love Mexican food and hanging out in my bedroom
