The Next Revelation is Revolution
Tell us about yourself and your music
I’m from the small, backward town of Belleville, Ontario in Canada. I’ve grown up trying to be me and stay in my lane until I get what I want, but you wouldn’t believe the trouble that has brought me. I’m finally at a point in my life where I can do what I was told was “evil” or had brainwashed out of my head; sing. And I can do it damn well. I’ve always wanted to be a vocalist. Now not only do I not need to explain a damn thing to anybody but when I want to voice my opinion, it’ll be rattling in people’s ears.
Talk to us more about your latest release
I grew up rough, like a lot of artists, but living paranoid all the time. I was never scared to die, but was always curious about the unknown, playing scenario after scenario in my head all day. I’ve always been more worried about others though since I seem to have a lot of survival instincts. This song is basically a middle-finger to every person that said I couldn’t do it or told me to kill myself(which in-turn left me with about 3 or 4 good people left in my life). On the flip-side, as I got older and forgave that, I got good at this which made a much larger crowd try to manipulate me all the time, or blatantly mock me to my face. I’d like to start my story here, getting in everybody’s face the way it’s been done to me since I was 2.
What inspired you to write this release?
All I’ve ever wanted to do is party, have fun, and be happy. All I’ve ever known is sarcasm, ignorance, and hate. Singing is the only thing that ever worked to express and release all of the demons that build up inside me, otherwise, things get violent for me. I want everyone to fuck off, and anyone that wants to get close can suck my dick. Then I want to be something so out there it’ll change music for the better eras to come. Who’s wants to party?
Describe the writing and recording process
Funny enough, a lot of what pushed me to write it and go forward with the idea happened during production too. I wrote the song on my last legs with barely anything left, but a few good people in my life had my back. Most people are used to me leaving, 3 bands later and doing this for 7 years can leave a mark. I knew this had to be it though and from there made some shady deals with a guy that was in the Brantford area. This guy was obviously full of shit, but I needed to learn some things about running a record label that he knew. I’d already managed and produced artists and musicians without even knowing it, so now that my head was in it with my own art and plans, I needed the last piece. I figured it all out and met some great people in the industry, around the Toronto area, to record and produce it. It was hard and rough, but I wouldn’t have it any other way, that’s chilling to me. Now here we are.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
Once the pandemic clears up, I can’t wait for 2021! We’re probably aiming for the summer. I hope I can come out of this like a screaming ball of chaos.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
It’s hard, especially with how vast the internet is now. There are lots of ways to still do it, but I find it’s always adapt or die. Personally, though I just have always liked messing with different sounds, roots, or mixing the right people together that I think would do well.
Who have you been listening to lately?
A lot of older stuff from when I was growing up. The 90s-2000s. What a unique and expressive time for music, and so many directions!
Who are your biggest influences?
Biggest? Damn, that’s always tough ‘cause you listen to so much from Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra to Avenged Sevenfold and Eminem. So many things can spark you, but to game-changers for me would probably be; Motley Crüe, Avenged Sevenfold, Marilyn Manson, 2Pac, Eminem, 50 Cent, Jimmy Iovine, Dr.Dre. Music really is the only thing that gets me going.
Tell us about your passions
Everything music. Listening to it, dissecting it, studying it, recording, producing, all the business stuff on the back-end. I really wish it was more prominent nowadays. I’m extremely competitive though, so I take a lot of passion for sports like hockey and football, or really anything you can play like video games. I love chilling on beaches right around dusk until night too. There you go that’s me.
What else is happening next in your world?
Loads. [Insert evil smile here]
