OUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH HENNY HERMES

1.Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?

My newest release “Million Dollar Mind” is dropping on June 18th 2021. Out of a lot of my other songs, this one in particular has a deeper meaning to it. the meaning behind this one is talking about how as kids, a lot of us feel pretty lost at times. no matter what it is specifically, most kids have trouble finding there true path and true identity at some point. this song is talking about my personal experience and the thoughts that circled my mind while I was in this stage of my life. My favorite line “I got a million dollar mind, so why I don’t use my head” relates back to when I was getting in a lot of trouble and had everybody thinking I wasn’t gonna be successful. But in the back of my mind I knew I had it in me to become something great. I realized that if you believe in yourself, nobody else really matters. 

2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?

Personally there are a few things that make my music different but the thing is… is that some of it can’t exactly be heard in the actual song itself. For example, in a lot of my recent songs such as “Secrets” I haven’t been writing any of my lyrics, I have just been free styling them. And it seems to be working, noticing the response from the fans to be rather positive about that song. Not a lot of artists can say they freestyle a lot of there songs. Even when I am not freestyling a song and I’m writing it, I tend to be a very good writer for my lyrics. A lot of artists always talk about getting “writers block” but that never happens to me, and I believe it is because I write about real like experiences and what I have really been through or dream of doing, that’s what makes the writing for my music so easy to me. It all just comes so naturally, I don’t have to think about it at all. I would describe my music as Hip-Hop/Rap a lot of people compare to The Kid Laroi. Some say it’s because I’m white, others say it’s because we actually sound the same in our music. But I’ll let the fans decide. 

3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?

I am most proud of the consistency of my work over the last year. I have only been dropping my music for a year and have already seen incredible success. I have been so consistent over the time I’ve been dropping music and I am proud of myself for working that hard to keep the fans happy. I am also proud of hitting 150k on tik tok because of my music. I honestly hate to look at numbers (followers/likes etc) because it can get you caught up somewhere you don’t wanna be, essentially doing it for the numbers and not checking quality. anyway even thought I don’t see numbers as a big success in most cases, I am proud of myself for showing that many people what I am capable of and hoping I can cheer up their day every time I post. It’s one big support circle. 

4.How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?

I have always been a super social person but ever since I realized that my dreams could really come true with my music and it’s looking that it going to happen. I started taking it more seriously and not going out and doing anything. After doing this for about 6 months now I have came to enjoy it. I’ve been watching everything from a distance and have realized that a lot of the stuff I was doing earlier was just drifting me further away from my goals when I thought it was pushing me closer. As far as family goes, I just graduated high school a few days ago and have been living with my parents. I am finally about to move out. I have a lot of big things planned. They are very supportive of everything I do and I couldn’t have asked for more. 

5.What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

BE YOURSELF! The biggest mistake I see artists doing is trying to be someone there not and then when it comes to the time where they have to show there true colors everybody sees through it and realizes they’ve been lying the whole time. If you want longevity in a music career you just have to be yourself. Because then you don’t have any risk of having to change yourself for “fame”. And everybody is going to find out eventually, you cannot hide forever. Don’t let ANYBODY tell you what you can and can’t do. This is your life, live it. 

6.If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

I Love You. The only reason I am here today and will be where I am going to be, is because of you guys. I couldn’t have asked for a better fan base and I will do everything I can to keep you guys happy with my work. 

7.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?

I have about 450 unreleased songs sitting in my computer. So at this point it’s a matter of how many songs can I put out without over saturating my fans with music. I have some huge things planned, everyone will just have to follow me on this journey and watch as it all works itself out.

Exclusive Interview With The Upcoming Artist “Las Guapo”

Published

1. WHEN DID THE IDEA TO BE AN ARTIST/PRODUCER BEGIN?

In late 2017 when I was working at sams club pushing carts and i went on Instagram to notice people like “Lil Pump” were blowing up and i thought to myself if someone like this guy can make music i know I can do it 10 times better.

2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PROJECT YOU’VE WORKED ON TO DATE?

My favorite project always changes, it’s always the most recent thing I’m working on at the time.

3. CAN YOU ROUGHLY OUTLINE YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS – FROM THE BEGINNING OF AN IDEA FOR A PROJECT OR A COLLABORATION TO THE POINT OF COMPLETION?

It’s a lot harder than people think. A lot of people always try to catch you at your lowest and most vulnerable points. Always got to be on ten toes.

4. HOW IS THE REALITY OF BEING AN INDEPENDENT ARTIST/PRODUCER COMPARED TO YOUR EXPECTATIONS OF IT?

I really just go into the booth and talk about what’s on my mind or what I’m going through in the moment. Nothing is written, everything just off the top of my head! 

5. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES AND DIFFICULTIES YOU FACE WHEN STARTING NEW PROJECTS?

Getting people on board to supporting my new ideas. I set the bar very high for myself so most people will think my goals are me putting a lot on myself at once but in reality that’s what keeps me going. I love the pressure.

6. WHAT DO YOU DO TO STAY CALM WHEN A PROJECT IS NOT GOING AS PLANNED?

Really I always have a set plan going into my releases so I do everything I can do avoid anything from not going to plan.

7. DO YOU HAVE ANY INSIGHTS, TIPS, OR ADVICE FOR SOMEONE STARTING LOOKING TO START THEIR MUSIC CAREER AND LOOKING TO GET INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?

Take every opportunity you get even if you think nothing will come out of it. You can become successful just off a conversation with the right person

8. WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF IN YOUR CAREER SO FAR?

I definitely am proud of myself so far, but there’s no stand out moment that I’m proud of cause I won’t be satisfied until I’m at the top.

9. WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?

I’m never not working. I have to be working at all times, if you don’t want to put in the work there’s always someone else that will. The key to this music business is good work ethic

Our passionate interview with PsychCloned

1. Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?

Spring Rush is my new single releasing to all platforms on March 18th.  I partnered with Ryan Jones and Space Hobo to help make this Jazzy Pop-Rock bop!  I wanted to release this single as a welcoming to the new season Spring which technically starts on March 20th.  If you close your eyes while listening to ‘Spring Rush,’ you can almost see the flowers blooming and the leaves returning to the trees.  This warm and upbeat instrumental track captures the feeling of a new beginning after a long winter in a way that words never could.  Guitarist Ryan Jones’ leads are playful and evocative, while drummer Space Hobo’s rhythms stretch out beneath constantly evolving harmonies.  The perfect soundtrack to a warm spring day.

2. What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?

All of my music is instrumental but what makes my music unique is that it is genre-defying. I don’t like producing the same type of music over and over and over.  To try and keep the musical storytelling aspect of each song engaging, I try blending multiple genres and song styles into one piece and even diversifying my chord progressions and such so that no two songs sound alike.  Within each single and even within my albums you will find that each song is a journey telling multiple stories.  The magic of instrumental music is that I may have a story in mind as I compose and produce it but the Listener may very well experience something completely different.  Music has such a unique way of speaking to people that you never know what memories and images a sound will produce in their heads.

I also enjoy experimenting with new instruments that you may not hear in mainstream music so sometimes you’ll hear ethnic instruments from international countries make an appearance on a song.  I don’t want to limit myself to the instruments found mainly in the Western world as I firmly believe that every instrument wants and deserves to be heard.  As I gain access to more and more instruments you will be sure to hear them make a splash in my upcoming songs.

3. Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?

At the beginning of 2022, I released my 26-minute epic, Perlivash. I started my music-producing journey back in February of 2020 with almost no prior knowledge in music theory or digital music production.  I spent countless hours reading articles and blogs, as well as watching several YouTube videos to help myself learn all the nuts and bolts behind composing and producing music and songs.  I never would have imagined that in less than two years I would be able to compose and produce a 26-minute cinematic song.  Perlivash exemplifies all progress I have made throughout the years as it not only showcases my confidence in more advanced musical progressions but also shows just how vivid and wild instrumental music can get! If you have not taken a listen, this is the song I recommend all new listeners enjoy as it is a great introduction to the music of PsychCloned! 

4. How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?

I make music out of pure love and enjoyment. It is something that birthed out of having a ton of free time at home due to the pandemic having forced us to live more indoors, so I don’t necessarily view what I do with music as an obligation or a career. I still have my full-time job in Marketing which I really enjoy and when I have spare time or when the wave of musical inspiration hits I work on music.  Music has and will always be a stress-relieving activity for me.  I don’t want to ruin my passion for music by transforming it into a job of some sort. 

5. What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?

If you love listening, playing, or making music, then do it!  Go out and show the world the stories and songs you have to offer! I know putting yourself out there is scary and not everyone makes it big, I mean I for sure am still a very small artist, but if you don’t give yourself a shot, if you don’t give all the billions of people out there the opportunity to hear your sound, then it is never going to be heard! You will never know if you are the next star in the music scene.  

Yes, getting started is probably one of the hardest things.  It takes time and money to make good music, but with any hobby or activity, even if you want to view it as a career, you need to put the time and effort to make it work.  Nothing in life is easy.  If you truly want something then you need to go out there and grab it with your own two hands.  Take that leap of faith and reach for the stars! 

6. If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

Thank you all for your continued support throughout the last couple of years.  While I am still a growing artist myself, I love to know that there are many out there looking forward to my next releases.  It means the world to me to know that my music and sounds resonate so soundly with each of you.  I want to continue to spread joy and excitement over music so please continue to lend me your support as there are many more musical journeys for us to take.

7. What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?

Spring Rush will conclude my “Winter of Melodies” campaign.  Since the start of the new year I have released five singles: Perlivash, Leap of Faith, White Lotus, Full Throttle, and Spring Rush.  Each of these songs are a precursor to the new EP I plan to release this upcoming summer. If you have enjoyed any of the new songs then I think you won’t want to miss the new EP.  Be sure to follow me on your preferred music streaming platform to be immediately notified when the new songs release.  Alternatively, you can find me on Facebook and Instagram, via @PsychCloned, where I plan to post teasers and snippets of the song.  If you want to be the first to hear what new stories are coming, be sure to follow me on there as well!
