Good afternoon chaps and chapesses! Happy Friday to you all and welcome back to another Beneath The Surface session. Todays is an extra special one as I am joined by international model AND musician Andreww on the day he has not only released his newest single but ALSO an online video game to match… (is there anything this man can’t do?)
So grab your afternoon bev of choice, get cosy and let’s get into it!
What would you say first sparked your interest in music/who inspired you to make music?
My dad took me to a Jethro Till concert when I was around 7-8 years old. Just hearing that wall of sound and seeing everyone enjoy together and sing together must have done something to me.
How would you describe the music you are currently creating?
I have absolutely no idea. I’m taking things from so many genres. The most important thing is to me that people recognize it’s a Andreww song.
What does your creative process look like?
The music starts with a guitar chord progression or riff and we just go from there. Lyrically I have a little note folder in my phone called “trick box” in which I’ve been writing sentences or paragraphs over years and years! I find a start and then puzzle everything together.
Who would you most like to collaborate with? (let’s send it out to the universe and make it happen!)
Puuuh I’ll give you five that I’m feeling today. Will change tomorrow.
What is the one message you would like to send out to your fans?
Take care of each other! We’re all well ever have!
What’s your top tip to rejuvenate your creativity/get over a writer’s block?
Don’t stress about it. If it’s not happening then don’t force it! Watch a movie or better documentary. Look for people that give you inspiration and 9/10 you will find something!
What’s next for you, what do we have to look forward to/ what are you currently working on?
Shadow Love was the third of six singles! Gonna keep blasting them out and treat each one like it’s my last and by end of year I have an album coming!
