Hey alexdrake., thanks for taking the time to talk to us today. Could you tell us something about yourself that nobody knows?
Hello! Yes, believe it or not – I was a professional tap dancer as a child. I think it has had a lot to do with my obsession and talent for rhythm and rhythm based instrumentation.
What influences have gone into your sound recently?
As I push forward and develop my sound, which I would say is continuously expanding or evolving, my major influences tend to stay the same. I have a keen understanding of multiple musical genres that I try to capture in all of my projects and musical endeavours.
What are you currently working on?
Currently I am working on the final mixes of my next and final release which should conclude this chapter for me. Not sure the release date yet but the track is definitely on the dancy side of indie/alt up-beat Rock and Roll.
What are your plans the year ahead?
My plans for the year ahead is to finish the release of these songs I have been working on and then get back into the rehearsal space with the band and start writing/recording some new concepts. I plan on continuing to put out singles throughout 2021 into 2022.
Any top tips for getting through this difficult time
Just listen to your heart, be yourself – enjoy what you are passionate about and at the end of the day enjoy the time you forced to be alone with yourself. If that is a struggle for you, try to find ways to make it better. Self-awareness and self-perseverance are key and it took me a long time to be able to feel comfortable in the uncomfortable but its worth the struggle.
