Interview With "Socially Altered"

Bookmark and Share
1 - How long have you been and how's your path until now in the Music Industry???

- After trying my hand in various professions, I started my music career in early 2015. I had just shut down my previous business and was practically doing nothing when I turned to my passion and thought of submitting a few tracks that I had recorded many years ago to a few indie labels, expecting nothing to come out of it. In a couple of months of my submission, I got an offer from an indie label (Nub Music) from UK. I was surprised and it was at this time that I realized my music is appreciated and I would give it a shot. I signed with Nub Music in 2015 and had released two albums with them, Eden After Sunset and Above The Clouds. Nub Music was very cooperative and I have received great support from them. I was a novice when I signed with them and knew practically nothing of the music industry and I knew I had way too much to learn. I wanted to and had to learn the ropes and everything this industry has to offer. In order to do that I had to plan and work towards a release myself on my own and learn everything related inside out. I beleive that if you want to honestly practically learn something you have to do it yourself without the support to lean back on. So in November 2016, I started self-releasing my songs. It's 2018 and almost two years since I started self-releasing. Since then I have released an EP Resurgence, two single's Limbo and Hacked, and currently working towards the release of my third single titled Mother. My journey so far has been exciting, exhausting, mentally agonizing, satisfying and pleasurable to say the least. I am learning something everyday and with every new release my production is getting better, so there's a constant movement forward. I love what I am doing and wouldn't have it any other way.

2 - What are your biggest achievements???

- I am a solo artist in every sense so far. I conceptualise, compose, arrange, record vocals and all instruments (Guitar, Bass and Keyboards), work on software (Drums), Mix and promote (Cover Art, Video's, Press Release, Submit to blogs, Social media promotion) my music on my own. I play by ear and feel, and I'm "illiterate" in musical notation. Taking all of this into consideration I have released music which has been appreciated by listeners. This is by far my greatest achievement where one's long hour's of hardwork and focus gets noticed and is appreciated, especially in the current time's where there is so much of music all around.

3 - What's your latest release(s) an project(s) and what can you tell us about them???

- Currently I am releasing my third single titled Mother, which is set to release digitally on the 18th of May 2018. It's a song about the grief over losing someone dear to you. For me it is my grandmother who I considered my first mother. She passed away 12 years ago and I still feel alone and miss her. The song has elements from my childhood like the bird call of a Koel which can still be heard in my grandmother's house. Certain sound's, or a smell can remind a person of a time that has gone by or of a person. The song revolves around the bird call and how it reminds me of the good times of the yester years with my grandmother in her house where I grew up. I recorded the bird call in the early hours of the day for the song. It had to be authentic. The song is the most honest to heart song's I have recorded so far and is inspired and dedicated to my grandmother.

4 - What are your future plans???

- I am working on a few concepts at present which I would like to turn into music. I do plan to release two more single's by the end of this year and the beginning of the next year. I am working on self-releasing my first album under my current artist name Socially Altered. So it's never a dull moment these days.

5 - What do you like to tell to your supporters out there???

- If you like heart and soul poured into a song then stay tuned for my single Mother which is releasing digitally on the 18th of May 2018. Lot's of exciting concepts will be turned into mind bending musical form which will follow after the current release. So gear up, the best is yet to come.
