Here's my "Interview" with NME.. Enjoy!
Tell us a bit about yourself? -
I didn't start making music until I was 18. I began by learning the piano when I found a youtube-tutorial of Sigur Ros "Hoppipolla". I thought It looked kind of simple yet produced such a beautiful melody. Fast-forward 5 years and I'm here making my own music, I've stressed in all the knowledge I could get my hands on so I'd be able to make quality music. I draw influence from David Bowie, Frank Ocean and Kanye West mainly. Though my music might not sound like any of those artist directly, it's certainly heavily influenced by the idea of those artist. I want to push boundaries, break sonic ground and make an impact on the music culture as a whole.
There are a lot of emerging Artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? -
I'm not from UK.
What’s you back-story? -
I made my first album "CLOUDS" battling depression, working at a fast-food restaurant and feeling like a total wreck. The album was my escape and I loved working on it. I was discovering old movies, books and meditation while creating it. I worked a lot on the artwork, I wanted it to feel like a poster for an epic cinematic tale.
What are you working on at the moment? -
CLOUDS 2 + other cinematic work for gaming company.
