GET TO KNOW: Fedi
After showcasing his worth with a flurry of bright and shimmering offerings over the last few years, emerging Lebanese-Australian artist Fedi has now returned once again with his vibrant new single 'Our All'.
With its diverse blend of sweeping hip-hop influences and blistering alt-rock energy, 'Our All' makes for a brilliant engaging listen. While very much wearing his influences on his sleeve, his latest release stands as a fresh and distinctive endeavour, brimming with adventurous creativity.
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?
Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?
If you and your homies didn’t attempt to form an alt-rock band at the height of the Green Day renaissance can you really even consider yourself an artist? We definitely did, I was the main singer, and I can only imagine we sounded absolutely atrocious. But the passion to make music was there from an early age!
What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?
Other hip-hop artists that I idealise and respect as lyricists, storytellers and authentic embodiments of themselves as people, inspire me to do the same and to be the same. There’s also an element of wanting to prove to myself that I can write with the best of them, as songwriting is probably my biggest passion.
What is a song you wish you had written yourself?
Mirrors by Justin Timberlake.
If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?
Waking up to an unprompted Instagram DM from Shaquille O’neal, wishing me luck and telling me I got bars. Or getting flown to Atlanta to record in Patchwerk Studios a week after 21 Savage, with his same engineer. That was cool.
Which artist would you most love to share a stage with?
And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?
Eminem, Kendrick, J Cole, Joey Bada$$, Kanye, Drake, Jack Harlow, and the list would just keep going so I’ll stop there.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
I see myself as a well regarded and highly renowned artist, both in my country (Australia) and worldwide. I also want to be writing for other artists, as well as myself.
