Interview: Squiire

image

Making his debut on Our Culture and his debut
in general with his first release ‘Eyes on You’ Justin Squire or more well known
as Squiire has pleasantly let us in for an interview. Here is what we got from
him!

Hello! How are you doing?

I’m good! Thank
you for asking.

We are happy to have you join our family how
does it feel to be part of Our Culture?

Thank you! Glad to be a part of it. This will be
my first release as Squiire so it feels great and it means a lot that you guys
believe in me.

Describe your style in 3 words

Deep, Retro, Future

Be famous and make bad music or make great
music and be unknown?

I would choose whatever route made the best music
possible. However being able to perform and experience that music with people
is extremely important so it’s a tough one. I don’t think any good artist truly
does it for fame alone.

What are your goals for 2017?

My goals for 2017 are to drastically improve my
sound and my image. Play more shows etc. Also do well in school and (which is
taking up the majority of time at the moment and will continue to do that until
I graduate in 2018) and learn as much as I can from it.

What made you make ‘Eyes on You’?

Eyes on you came out of a time of inactivity
musically. I started messing around with cs-80 a bit and kind of made a whole
ep in a week. Most of those songs are still being tweaked right now.

If you could collaborate with anyone who would
it be and why?

If I could
collaborate with anyone… that’s a tough one. I would love to learn from a
legend who really innovated something like Jimi Hendrix but today someone like
Stephen Bodzin would be amazing, I’m really loving that progressive techno
sound right now.

What inspires you to make music?

Creating a place where everyone can be together
and feel like we’re one I’d what inspires me. I also feel like I have the
capacity to make people really think about life and themselves in a positive
introspective way. I want to take people on a journey with my music and
eventually my sets.
