Wonderland interview with Benbrick

I did another interview. This time with Wonderland mag.

Here’s a taster –

So what do you want from your music career?

I’d like to continue to make things that excite and inspire me. Eventually, I’d like to be doing more music for film.

Is that the same feeling you get from writing a song?

Being excited and inspired? It’s definitely the thing that I’m looking for. Sometimes it takes a long time to find. I normally start writing at about midnight when everyone has left the other studios around me, and it’s quiet.

What do you spare no expense on?

Probably food and coffee. I find menus at restaurants really annoying though. It just takes so long to read them and work out what’s going on. We need a new menu system. I’d spare no expense overhauling the menu system.

And So She Runs

EARMILK have once again supported my music. Love those guys.

This time they’ve written about And So She Runs. Go read the full article here

It’s unusual to find an artist with not only a captivating sound, but also a captivating purpose.

I love that – everything I do is driven by my own ambition to make new art and get it out into the world. I am not too interested in record labels at the moment – I simply want to find new ways to connect my music with other people.

Not only do we feel a touch of Sam Smith, but also The Weeknd and an almost Ben Gibbard like structure in his vocals.

If you don’t know Ben Gibbard – he is the singer in Death Cab for Cutie and one of my favourite singers and lyricists. I was listening to his album Transatlanticism quite a lot while creating my music so it’s really very cool to be mentioned in the same sentence.

Benbrick first ever Interview on Brightside

I did a Benbrick interview with Brightside the other day for my new track And So She Runs… here is a little taster

As always here at Brightside, we strive to connect independent artists to bigger paths. I wouldn’t be surprised to see you make it much further in 2014. Do you see yourself being picked up by a label?

Thank you! At the moment I’m really enjoying creating music, creating videos, reaching out to blogs. I don’t want to have to compromise – but I’m aware that teaming up with the right label could flip the project. I’m thinking more about indie labels though – someone that has the time to dedicate to building something great. It’s about more than just playing some shows around London, you know? It feels like a good time to be creating music – the power is in your hands to get it in front of lots of people. As labels are moving to subscription and streaming instead of CD sales it’s more important than ever to know exactly what the label is going to deliver. I think I’m probably just quite picky! Haha
