1.) What inspired you to start a career in music?
I think a huge part of getting into music for me was impersonating what media was showing me about “being a rock-star”. If we go back far enough, my mom still has a picture of me in sunglasses rocking a dope, Gibson Explorer-looking toy guitar when I was like 6 years old. Same for my sister. My mom is kind of a bad ass like that.
2.) How would you describe your music to someone who’s never heard it before?
For Bliss, my latest EP, it’s like if MGMT stumbled into a night club. Weird indie pop vibes.
3.) To a new listener, what song would you suggest they listen to?
Take a stab at any of them! But I’ve gotten lucky with the numbers on Colder Shoulders. So if you do check that out and like it, let me know why because I’m curious and still can’t justify the numbers.
4.) What is your biggest goal for this year, musically
Figure out why I’m doing music for sure. That’s usually the biggest goal always. Making sure I’m secure in my messaging and my sound I’m bringing to the scene. It takes a lot of work on your life in general. Art imitates life so if I wish to put out an honest message I must be living that lifestyle and surrounding myself with aesthetics and experiences that influence that message.
5.) What is the meaning behind your most recent release?
Easy is about the inner conflict that occurs around a one night stand ordeal. That experience can be hard to navigate and I was introduced and educated in it mainly in college. Declaring that you’re super into someone but don’t have the energy to invest in them all the way because you have your own critical pursuits is never a fun discussion. But it makes for a fun, open, honest time.
6.) What inspired the visuals to the “ I Want To Be With Myself” music video?
Blade Runner and the magic of Alex Robino. I gave him the back story to making Bliss and some of those aesthetics and he ran with it perfectly.
7.) Will there be any upcoming new releases or tour dates in 2019?
Probably not any personal releases and definitely no touring for this guy. There are many people in the local PDX scene I want to contribute to before coming back to a project of my own. It’s just about approaching collaboration with the same seriousness and importance as my own personal music career. I’m inspired by some of the people around me. I just need to start working.
8.) Do you have any hidden talents?
I’m not sure. I can whistle fairly loud but I can’t do that thing where you make a pocket with your pointer finger and thumb. I’m also a graphic designer if that counts?
9.) Something you want your fans to know?
Every single person is insecure about something. Don’t care about the irrelevant. Be imperfect in the pursuit of your best.

Interview w/ upcoming artist Saus

What inspired your start, and at what age did your interest in music start ?

I picked up a pen at the age of 9, I had watched family members pursue what I didn’t take seriously until age 16. I fell in-love with Hip-Hop early on but older generations kept my knowledge on music diverse.

For someone who has never listened to you before, what song do you suggest they listen to first ?

If I had to recommend one of my songs to a new listener I’d chose ” Vibe” ft L.A.F & BroGod prod deem0beats. The song brings positive energy and vies with its catchy chorus, it makes for a good first listen.

Turn the tables, if you’re attending a concert/show as the concert goer, what is the best show/ tour you’ve seen to date?

The best shown I’ve seen so far was J.Cole Forest Hills Drive Tour. He is an incredible artist and performer and sets the bar high for his peers.

State/country you would like to play but haven’t yet?

A European tour is a small yet major goal of mine.

Bucket list venue to perform at ?

Being from New York, Madison Square Garden is one venue I’d love to perform at, and sell out.

Do you have any upcoming performances?

I do not have any upcoming shows but I am always willing and looking for new opportunities.

How did you and Dan Moody meet ?

I moved onto his block in Rosebank, Staten Island NY in 2007, We were neighbors for seven years before we linked up to collaborate. The rest is history..

who/what influences you most?

The people I make music with are incredibly talented and we influence each other by keeping it real with new ideas and criticism.

How do the words at the end of the ” worth it ” music video relate to your own life?

” The choices we make in life come back full circle.”, the message I am trying to spread with both the quote and the video was that you might not realize it but even the smallest decision can alter your future. I believe that not only myself, but most people can say they feel the same.

Lastly, anything to say to your fans?

Id like to tell my fans to, shoot any shot given, to manifest positive thoughts and never let anyone hold you back.
