We had a pleasure of interviewing of the very talented musician Mezo. His latest single Human Contact is out now with a great official video supporting it. Here is our interview with him.
Hi, how are you?
Everything is great, trying to live life to the fullest & focused on creating good art. Been a little retrospective about the loss of so many great musical artists in the last year or so. Many great ones like George Michael, David Bowie, Prince & most recently Chris Cornell, makes me wonder if their is a bit of curse for the artist.
When did you decide to start working on music?
I honestly remember making up what I thought were songs around 5 or 6 years old but I first stated really working with instruments, drum machines, programs, & samples in my early teens.
Do you have anything exciting in the works?
Yes, I am working on new material & more specifically working with a few music supervisors on some film placements for some of my newest material. Also, I’m currently working with my co-writer / producer Andy Anderson on some new talented artists projects (w.o.l.f. pack 6) that encompass multi genres. Future r&b, pop, electronic. & even a bit of reggae.
Outside of music do you have any hobbies that you like to escape to?
Besides music, I really love films & studying some of my favorite actors. I am a professional actor as well & I enjoy learning monologues. One that I have been recently working on is the Christopher Walken one on “Lions” and I also love another one Johnny Depp did in “Black Mass” at the dinner table. Both of them are little sinister, maybe I’m a bit crazy.
Describe your music in one word.
Describers yourself in one word.
If you could give any advice to any aspiring musicians what would it be?
Pray to God you have great connections & money. lol Seriously, just be truthful & study the greats. Every great artist that you love never believes in their heart that they are as good as those that they have admired & been inspired by.
What is your definition of culture?
Culture to me is when sub groups of people gravitate to what they believe is highest standard of their personal taste. These groups help to elevate their brand of art, music, literature, fashion & philosophy.
