So with the new single available now, we sat down with him to find out more about his background and influences over the years.
What was the first band or artist you fell in love with?
The first band/artist that I fell in love with was Queen. Their songs and the way they performed were just utterly spectacular. I was lucky enough to watch Queen perform with Adam Lambert at one of their concerts when they came to Taiwan and their energy was just amazing.
Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?
The only time I was ever in a band was during elementary school and we played mostly hard rock and pop-punk tunes.
What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?
My primary inspiration when writing music is just what emotions that I’m experiencing at the moment. Music is all about emotions and how it makes you feel, I feel like if I write music on my recent emotions it’ll be more honest and genuine.
What is a song you wish you had written yourself?
Bohemian Rhapsody. It is one of the best songs ever written and I think almost every musician wishes that they wrote this song.
If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?
I would want to relive the time I performed at one of the most popular EDM nightclubs in Taiwan. That was probably the most fun I’ve ever had in my career so far and I wish I can perform around the world in different nightclubs in the future.
Which artist would you most love to share a stage with?
I would love the share the stage with artists like Illenium, Afrojack, Skrillex, and Hardwell. They just have some much energy and presence on stage. I would love to perform with them.
And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?
Artists I would love to collaborate with will be Illenium, Jon Bellion, Drake, Meek Mill, David Guetta, Hardwell, Afrojack, and The Chainsmokers, just to name a few. I would love to collaborate with any artists, however, I love working with people and bouncing off ideas with each other to make a great hit.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
In 5 years’ time, I see myself performing around the world and releasing my debut album.
