Tell us your source of inspiration.

A lot of it is the kind of music I used to listen to as a child and film music – especially from 80s films. Current artists like M83 and The 1975 also inspire me.

Discuss how you develop your music style.

It’s just the case of what sounds I like and how I use them. It’s hard to describe how I’ve developed my style. I just like certain sounds and timbres more than others. It’s taken years to develop my writing style and to be comfortable with it knowing it’s fully who I am. I think all artists go through that journey.

Elaborate on multi-genre music.

I think most artists would say they like a lot of different types of music. I am one of them of course and I do like to incorporate different musical influences from my lifetime. Multi-genre just isn’t strictly one definitive style.

Tell us the best means of reaching fans.

Live videos on Instagram or YouTube.

Discuss the process involved in launching a musical career.

You believe and dream and know you can achieve it and then somehow the right people come into your life to help you along the way.

 

I’ve known I’ve wanted to be a music artist from a very young age and if you stay with your dream and work towards it, life sends you the right people and circumstances. There’s no one way as everyone has a different story.

Tell us how to develop a lyric to a full song.

I have to fully feel what I’m writing. I have to be able to visualize the scenario or story in order to write a full song.

 

Usually, I start with an emotion, and then why do I feel that and how did I come to feel that in the first place?  There’s usually a story around the whole situation. It’s just finding the words to piece it all together. I find using the website ryhmezone.com helps me out a lot too!

Tell us how you come up with a melody.

I just keep singing and recording something until I like the sound of it.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your ideal type of recording studio.

One with a sea view and lots of windows.

.

.

.

 

Describe the factors you consider in a good song.

A great melody and something that uplifts you or makes you feel at peace.

 

Also, a singer singing it that you love the voice. I find that crucial, as I’m quite picky with people’s voices…

Tell us how you impact your listeners with your songs.

I usually like to get to the chorus quick and I like using my voice in an emotive way. It just has to have a vibe that draws you in immediately – be it with production or your voice.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you deal with producers and music directors. 

I am a producer and I produce my songs, so I guess I only need to deal with myself.

.

.

 

Tell us how you feel after the completion of a song.

A mix of pure happiness, excitement, relief, and huge satisfaction.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your worst song and state the reason.

I love all my songs! They are simply expressing different times in my life and I cannot for any reason regret any song or think that anyone is rubbish because at the time it was perfect.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you will change in your music.

I think my mixes will get better and I may start co-writing with other people.

Tell us what is special about this release.

It’s special because I wrote this song about 3 years ago now and so I’m super excited for it to finally be released. It’s been a long time coming! Plus, it’s an awesome song that suits the summertime vibe.

.

Tell us about your future goals.

I’d love to perform in stadiums and impact thousands of people all at the same time with my music and make them feel feelings and pure happiness they’ve never felt before!

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you overcome obstacles.

It can be super hard at times of course but I find keeping my dream alive at the forefront of my mind helps a lot. If you stay focused and motivated, you can overcome any obstacle.

Elaborate on the song.

‘Stay’ is about finding yourself suddenly having feelings for a friend you’ve had your whole life. You keep spending the summer holidays together as you always did as younger kids but this time around you don’t want them to go back home, instead you want them to stay because this summer is something else!

 

You’ve fallen in love with them, but, is that wrong? It’s something I can most definitely relate to.

Elaborate on your artist’s name and the title of the album.

My name ‘Rider’ means many things to me. It means fast energy, excitement, freedom, always changing/adapting, and riding life which is how I’ve lived my life! I haven’t released an album as such as I’ve only released singles.
