Q: First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
I started my career during college. It all began with a friend of mine giving me a call and telling me that she got a job at an advertising agency now and they are in need of music so she reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to write the music for it.
After satisfying her company with my work they used me again and again and also recommended me to some other agencies they work with and thats how basically the ball started rolling. In the next couple years I made more connections with people in the industry and got the opportunities to work on bigger projects and build up my portfolio that way.
Q: What advice would you give to beginners who are nervous?
For anyone who is just starting out writing music I would recommend you talk to people who currently work in the industry both on the music side and also on the media side and get to know them and ultimately become friends and or business partners over time. Though do not just send your music to people and ask them how they like it or if they can give you work. Instead introduce your self by showing interest in what that person does and then later offer them the skills you can bring to the table.
Stepping into new territory can be scary because there is always a certain amount of uncertainty involved but I am going with the mindset that new doors open new opportunities and even if the outcome might not turn out as planned then there will still be other doors which can be opened and lead to something good.
Q: How easily do songs tend to come to you?
With so many great songs released on a daily basis from thousands of artists around the world there is always inspiration for something new. Also playing and experimenting with new sounds and instruments also helps me to get Ideas for new songs. Also another great tip I have for people who struggle to come up with something is by covering your favorite songs but using different instruments and or changing up some parts by experimenting with alternative chords, different tempo and even experimental mixing plugins like portal from Output can give you inspirations for something new and fresh.
Q: What is you favorite song to belt out at the bar/in the car right now?
Currently I listen to some League of legends cinematic soundtracks like Awaken and also the soundtrack for Seven deadly sins.
Q :What are your future goals as a music artist?
My goal is to work on larger longterm scale projects where I can involve multiple artists together to create amazing music with amazing people.
Q: What was your most memorable performance to date?
The proudest moment I had so far was sitting in the cinema and two movie trailers Dumbo and mid90s came up and both had my music in it which was an awesome feeling!
