-What do you look for when you listen to the demos that people send you? What makes you say: ‘that’s what I wanted to hear!’ ?
- I usually don’t accept demos. My approach is old school and I take what I learned from the majors in how I operate the label. Most artists are mentored for years before they have a release. It’s more about having family and people you can grow with, witness their lives and see what it’s really like, we share our lives and are close and are more than music. I’m kinda the papa to my family. It allows for the music to be more honest, I beileve. Example, if an artist sends me a song that’s not necessarily true within whats happening with their life, I’d take that as an attempt to create something outside of their truth. Usually it makes people step back and understand the power of why they create and not do it to make a hit, or be this, or that but to keep the music pure and for the sake of expression.
-Have you already restarted to perform somewhere? If not, how are you preparing for the comeback? Are you excited about it and what news will you bring to your sets?
- I’ve been performing constantly during the pandemic. Fortunately the States is massive and each state and city handles the pandemic differently which has allowed for things to move pretty much the same here.
-Let’s get a little bit into social matters. The United States are one of the leading democracies of the world and we (non Americans) have surely been massively influenced by American culture in almost every aspect of our culture. Yet they have a history (and a present) that speaks about racism, inequality, social abuses etc. As an American and a St.Louis (MO) native, how have you seen America evolving throughout the years and -if so- what is you hope for the future?
- I don’t see America evolving as of yet, it’s actually gone the other way. I do however think people are becoming enlightened on what and how the world really is. I’m hopeful that we can have the closest to utopia as possible soon but I am clear this is a spiritual war moreso than anything so whatever happens I know love will prevail and music will be the key language for the healing.
-Well I guess that’s all. Thanks for your precious time Christian, it’s been great talking to you. My curiosity made me go in depth and I hope you too felt at easer chatting with us. We hope to see you around ASAP, in the meantime best of luck for all your present projects, that will lead to some great future ones. Ciao!
