There's a growing Creator Class of people who make art for a living. This series will feature interviews and discussions with these people, showcase cool, overlooked indie work, and document my personal journey into a professional life. I look forward to sharing this with you!
My first full-on LP effort. Escapist Talk is inspired by many contemporary and classic influences who have done innovative and interesting things in the musical landscape like Little Dragon, Friendly Fires, Melody's Echo Chamber, Kate Bush, James Blake... to name a few. However the main thread is the many ways in which our lives are propelled by wishful thinking and varying levels of illusion. The songs are an exploration of goals, aims, the concepts that matter and motivate us, and the coping mechanisms, the escapes we use.
