GET TO KNOW: TERRENCE615
After spending the last few months delivering a bold and shimmering array of alt-pop offerings, fast-rising artist TERRENCE615 has now returned to deliver his captivating new EP 'Air, Angles, & Afterthoughts'.
Featuring the previously shared efforts 'Repair' and 'Blow Over', 'Air, Angles, & Afterthoughts' makes for a wonderfully passionate listen. With his distinctly heartfelt voice riding a bed of broad and vibrant production from start to finish, he is certainly heading down the right path on this one.
So with the new EP out now, we sat down with him to find out more about his background and influences over the years.
What was the first instrument you learned to play?
My voice, haha. I actually can’t play any instruments yet! I want to learn keys or guitar soon.
What was the first album you remember owning?
A Toby Mac CD. I was pretty much only allowed to listen to Christian music for a good part of my upbringing. It made me who I am today.
Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?
Nope. Just me doing my thing with some friends here and there.
What is a song you wish you had written yourself?
Anything by Drake haha. To be specific, Blue Tint.
What has been the most thrilling moment about creating your own music?
Being able to hop in any studio in any environment and make authentic music. It feels like nothing else in the world and I never pictured that for myself.
And what about the most frustrating part?
The most frustrating part has been getting my voice and songwriting to where it’s at now. I’ve always been aware of the level I’m at in each stage and I’m finally at a level to where I have full confidence in my skills. I actually like listening to my own music and I remember a few years ago it wasn’t like that.
Which artist would you most love to share a stage with?
Dominic Fike. He seems fun and just jams in his own way.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
In five years I will have a solid fan base of at least 10k people that support me even outside music. My music career will have developed in sound and in creativity. People see me as a symbol for authenticity, vulnerability, and love. I will know 10x more than I do now about everything I’m interested in. I will be in the best position financially and able to invest in others & the community. I will have a place or two of my own just how I want it to be. The biggest thing is, I will be self-sustaining off of numerous forms of creativity and the people who stuck by me will be supported as much as possible.
