What would you say is your greatest strength as an artist?
I’ve always been thankful to have the drive, balance and focus to “get the job done”. I think a huge challenge many artists face is self-doubt and perhaps a splash of procrastination.
I try my best not to overthink things and just have fun with the songwriting and production process, which thankfully has led to me producing an album’s worth or more of music every year. I was raised in a music-focused family and surrounded myself with a lot of great talent through my youth, so I think it gave me an ear for songwriting and even the “entrepreneurial” side of the music business. You essentially have to have both, especially these days.
What is your creative process when making music?
I make it a priority to time block when it’s time to write, produce, mix or work on anything business related for my music.
You have to just let go, and realize that not every session will be 110% productive but it’s how everything adds up when you put in consistent work. I’ll start the process with a pen, paper, acoustic guitar and piano to get the thoughts flowing. If I really want to get things saved, I’ll jump into Pro Tools to track the basics of the song.
How long have you been making music and what attracted you to it?
I have been writing and making music since I was a teenager. My family had a recording studio on our property so I was essentially raised with music in my blood. My home area of Toronto was also a hotbed for talent, music stores and venues so I had all the ingredients needed to do music as a lifelong passion.
What is the biggest challenge you have had to overcome as a band/artist so far?
It was crucial to carve my own identity and not compare myself to other artists or bands. Everyone has different peaks and valleys throughout their career and keeping my head down and focusing helped me get through any moments of overthinking things.
What streaming sites do you think offer the most value to a band?
Oh, I keep it simple, Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube are where everyone is hanging out these days. If you want to discover up-and-coming artists, you can always keep your ears open on Instagram and Tiktok.
How do you think social media or the internet has affected the music scene in your country?
Oh, this could be a super long answer and explanation haha. Social Media opened up pandora’s box for music discovery, organization and streaming. Because it’s easier than ever to make a record though, as there are so so many artists out there.
So even though finding music and information is easier than ever, you also have to sift through a lot of talent to find what you’re looking for. Thankfully, social media makes things easier than ever to promote your music and share it with friends/family. However, nothing beats networking in person and playing live shows. That part will never change.
What are your friends and parents thoughts on your career?
Oh, they love it and they have been my biggest champions throughout my career. There are of course some friends that are indifferent to my music since we are friends and bonded through other things but they are always happy to see me succeed. Thankfully, my parents understood and supported music long before I was on this planet haha.
What does your current song mean to you?
It’s just more of a personal reflection on past relationships and certain people’s behaviour throughout the whole thing. The song means a lot to me because it was fun as hell to write and record, not necessarily because of the lyrics or its therapeutic elements of it. I love writing music, what can I say?
What is one message you would give to your fans?
Thank you so much for being a supporter of my music and brand. Without you all, I can’t do what I do for a living. Be on the lookout for my new single “Boilermaker” coming out this month! It’s a killer cover of the Royal Blood track.
