Talk to us more about your latest release
What we are told we often forget. What we are shown we might not remember but what we are involved in, what we experience – that we understand and remember effortlessly.
Chris BEER is known for tackling thorny subjects that affect us all and yet are often inadequately represented in mainstream culture.
His new release ‚Any time soon‘ celebrates the human mind’s ability to adapt to challenging circumstances. After all, it is often in the face of adversity that one finds out how strong one truly is. It is dedicated to those struggling with mental/physical illness.
What inspired you to write this release?
My Inspiration is my motivation to give back what great songs/music of artists like Johnny Cash, Sting, Bob Marley or Jonathan Richman gave me. A world to dive into challenging times, where one hears and connects to true stories/emotions and feelings-of magical moments/good times and also of loss and failure and feeling hurt/vulnerable.
Describe the writing and recording process
The original theme usually comes from whatever is happening to others in my surroundings or myself. Then I sit with my guitar in my home studio and jam around with paper and pencil nearby-until something arrives, that refuses to leave :-)
When it hooks me and captures my attention, I have the feeling others will connect to it as well.
And when it feels just right, I know it is finished. That process can take hours, days or even years…and most song ideas never make it onto a record.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
The concert dates are in jeopardy at the moment, but all the information will be updated at:
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
A lot of pop music is aiming to be larger than life. I strive for capturing the imperfections of life/music and the beauty within. I see myself as a vehicle to deliver the vibe of the particular song. That is why stylistic variety is what makes me stand out. That also has its’ disadvantages as we humans tend to want more of the same-when we like something. But an owl will never be a turtle-you have to be true to yourself above all.
Who have you been listening to lately?
So many….last few days….alt-j, Koffee, Bedouin Soundclash, Milky Chance, Josh Ritter and of course Paul Simon, as he just retired recently.
Who are your biggest influences?
My parents showed me by the example of how art, music, literature, theatre, and comedy can light your fire and give you strength.
Tell us about your passions
I love creating something out of nothing. I like recording music and working on projects with others until one has reached a goal. I like editing and shooting videos and combining it with sound.
What else is happening next in your world?
As of right now. I am spending a lot of time at home with my children and wife (who is also working in the home office and focusing on small things/day to day life.
Thanks for an awesome interview, Chris Beer
