Rock the Hip Hop Saint Severus Interview
What first got you into music?
I’d say video games got me into music. Playing old GTA games and listening to the radio stations within those games really informed my musical taste. Also the old WWE games. I had a cousin who was a big fan of Nirvana, so my love for Nirvana and rock music, in general, was influenced by him.
Who inspired you to make music?
I would credit artists like Michael Jackson, Nirvana, and The Weeknd as inspirations of mine.
How would you describe the music that you typically create?
The music I make is largely experimental and oftentimes doesn’t fall in one specific genre. It’s largely influenced by alternative rock and R&B music.
What is your creative process like?
I fire up my music production software (shout out Reason) and I just start compiling various sounds and put them together on a whim. It ends up sounding really good and that’s pretty much my process. Very simple.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
I’d love to collaborate with Tame Impala. I think I could make a really vibey song with Tame Impala.
If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
I’d love to open for The Weeknd. The energy at his concerts is insane.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
Put yourself out there and always expect a few haters to serve their purpose. Everything else follows as long as your intentions are good and you put in the effort.
What is the most useless talent you have?
I’d say my most useless talent is talking like Kermit the Frog. I am really good at being Kermit.
Do you sing in the shower? What songs?
I rarely ever sing in the shower but when I do, I’m probably singing Smooth Operator by Sade.
What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
Well, I am still in college right now and working as a music producer and educator. I’d probably just be focused more on school if the music wasn’t something I did.
Where have you performed? What are your favorite and least favorite venues? Do you have any upcoming shows?
I’m still a new artist, so I have yet to perform anywhere. I would love to perform at the Greek Theatre in LA.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
The internet has given the music business more challenges in my opinion but also a lot of ease. We don’t have to wait in line for new CDs anymore but artists have to retain a fanbase that continually streams their songs to make good money.
I think there is a level of advantage artists have now with increasing their reach without having to physically promote music, but competition increases as a result and that can make music marketing hard for new artists.
How do you think people would react to your live set?
Considering Death Row is the only song I have out right now, that would be it. I genuinely believe it would go hard live. I also have a few tracks on the way that will be a part of my new album, “Original Sin”, that would be great to perform.
Which famous musicians do you admire?
I have a lot of respect for artists like Kurt Cobain and Prince. Immensely talented artists who were just themselves no matter what.
What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
I’d say the time I got caught stealing from my dad with his credit card was pretty bad.
Spent like $80 on the PSP store and got caught because I was openly bragging about all these games that I wasn’t supposed to have. I was relatively a good kid. I just loved to experiment and one day I experimented with the wrong thing.
