Artist Interview: Wesley Ignacio
Tell us about yourself and your music
First of all, hello to everyone. I’m Wesley Ignacio, I’m 19 years old, from Brazil. I consider myself as a music producer, not a DJ or an entrepreneur. Music producer because is that I make, music. Now, I’m producing my debut album that will be named “#Alone”, which features about 14 unpublished Pop / R&B songs with a special romantic feeling and a pinch of Electronic Music.
Talk to us more about your latest release
So, my last song was a very special song. The name is “Christmas is coming now”, it’s special because it’s my first original song with my own voice, until the moment this song was released. I just had published some remixes and one song instrumental.
What inspired you to write this release?
I started producing this song in February and it would be part of my debut album, but it started to sound like a Christmas song and I thought: “Why not release a Christmas song?” So… I made! (Laughs). But different than I was thinking, I decided to release it in December as a Single.
Any plans to release a video?
Oh sure, for my first album I need to do it.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I say I listen to a lot of music. Sometimes I get scared about it (laughs). But, I could say that I enjoy listening mainly to mainstream songs, in addition to enjoying it a lot, I understand how the music industry is going.
Tell us about your passions
I really like to learn, to discover new things. Every new song I hear is kind of a challenge to me. I play piano, sometimes just a piano in front of me in a dark room and done, I spend hours there (laughs).
Thanks for an awesome interview, Wesley!
