RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW NOBODY’S WOLF CHILD
Hiya folks thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.
What made you decide to start the band / become a soloist?
It’s not really a decision it’s a becoming. Some human people just like to be playing music for fun and choose to do it for that reason but for myself it’s not a choice its just who I am.. I’ve struggled to understand it and be the right instrument but now I’m there.
Introduce us all to you and your musical history?
History is history it’s been a ride. Now it’s me with an incredible producer who I work with to bring out all the magic behind the songs, so that I’m no longer walking away from the studio with a high quality recording that has absolutely no personality left and I’m preferring my demo.
9 Wolves write and sing with me and their voices must never be squashed.
Whats one question you’re sick of being asked when interviewed?
I can’t claim to have allowed many interviews into my world but I don’t really like having to explain why things are the way they are, mystery is good and there is so little of it around.
Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?
Humans that cannot fathom entertaining the idea that there is an alternative narrative to what they are told, utterly baffle me. Let’s just leave it at that.
What useless party trick do you have?
I’ve been a Christmas Elf, so I can make balloon animals, which is an essential part of Elfing
What was the most fun you have had on stage?
The moments when the music takes on a life of its own and becomes this effortless, powerful energy, coming out of you, from the other musicians and just dances its way through the space like a released dragon.
I never really know what makes that moment happen but it’s better than anything. Gold.
What was the worst experience on stage?
It’s a toss up between two periods of time in my past life; starting out alone with a heady mix of stage fright and frustration that I couldn’t project the music as it should be, because it was just me, I didn’t enjoy it.
Then another time when I was a terrible fit in a band. Every single time I had to perform I just wanted to disappear. Friday was my favourite day because it was the furthest away from Thursday when we did the regular show.
Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about?
Well, you’d have to know me to find something surprising I suppose. However, I was going for – I’m actually quite shy – but was just laughed out of the room on that one. I AM fucking shy! Bastards, no idea of the internal conflict. The constant battle within.
If you had to describe your music to an alien how would you describe it?
Quantum multiverse theory in action….?
What makes you stand out as an Artist?
My teeth and claws.
Ha, I think it’s that I’m not just releasing tracks like a recording artist, the songs are worlds within a worlds and I bring that visual and the story to the table too. It’s supposed to feel more like a 360 immersive offering. The visuals are my concepts and executed by an incredible team who are all now beloved pack members.
I write what I want to write, I write what I love I love what I write and I protect the integrity of the songs fiercely.
I am and will remain an independent artist, I’ve no interest or intention to be any other way.
Right now, what’s pissing you off the most? (Can’t say the virus )
There’s a virus? Hmm, interesting.
Human nature is an umbrella for everything that pisses me off, ever.
What’s your favourite song to play live and why?
Well all these babies are newborn so I have yet to discover the answer but I am very much looking forward to performing the soon to be released; Nobody and Big Bad Wolf. For the instrumentation involved with the former and the visuals for the latter. It’s going to be another huge undertaking to get the live show that I want to offer with as little compromise as possible.
I hear you have a new single what can you tell us about it?
Yes, The Fall. It has quite a good dynamic range
Talk me through the thought process of the Music
I’m afraid that’s my secret to keep. Just eat the cake and enjoy it, then come back for more next month.
What was the recording process like?
A haven from utter fucking madness. You get to live inside the song, which is the backbone of the project. My relationship with this reality disintegrated so much that I created another one and that’s the immersive experience I want to continue through to the listener.
What was the biggest learning curve in writing the music?
Do not try to tame the beast
Would you change anything now it’s finished?
It will never be finished!
What are your plans for the year ahead?
A song a month with all the beautiful visuals, gather up pack members, put out a limited vinyl or two and always aim for the live work to begin.
Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
Anything I’m willing to share goes into the music 😉
