Let's Get To Know SynthPrincipal
1- What is one of the first songs you remember liking as a kid?
From a young age, I loved Neil Diamond, two of my favorite tracks were “Forever in Blue Jeans” and “Sweet Caroline” another great track is from Status Quo “Rockin all over the world” This brings back memories of meeting my cousins in Australia and going to Kangaroo Island. Those sounds were an early obsession of mine and always had to listen to those songs in the car with my parents.
2- What influenced you to get into music?
This was a bit of a happy accident really! I had just finished an Extended Diploma in games design but had no desire to enter the games industry. Later on, I found a HNC in Music Technology and had to provide some music I had made and at that point, I had no music… so I needed to create something, and fast... I had always wanted to make something similar to Klayon's (AKA Scandroid) sound with elements of Dance With The Dead, so I did just that, creating an early version of my first single “Traveler”. So really it was a bit of motivation driven by necessity that finally pushed me into making music and here I am!
3- At what age did you start playing/singing?
This was a long time ago when I started producing music if you can call it that. I discovered a basic DAW called Music Maker Jam at fourteen and just started to make music that I would listen to, I would make: Rock Music, Pop, Electronic and Experimental tracks, I would also dabble in a bit of Dubstep (I had a Skrillex faze and liked Bangarang a little too much!)
