Artist: Zander Bleck
How did you come up with the name of your new single, “Alive”?
“Alive” came out naturally when I began writing about my reemergence. It had a bold energy that fit the melody.
Is there a specific person or event that inspired this track?
I think just the last few years and the chaos of being let go from two major record deals. I had to really dig deep and grind myself back to where I am now
What sparked your aural addiction?
Since I was very young, music was always an addiction. I was lucky to grow up in a household where music played throughout each and every day morning to night.
Are there any genres of music you would like to try or avoid?
No, the more diverse the better, my Spotify playlist is Beethoven, to Coldplay, to Johnny Cash, to Kygo, to Hans Zimmer.
When you’re lacking inspiration, how do you kickstart your creativity?
Travel. Move my body to a new place. Get away from any kind of routine or normality.
What is currently on your playlist?
Like I said above, anything and everything, but I would say what is playing throughout my apartment most is chill wave electronica.
What is your favorite type of performance venue?
A packed house
How have your surroundings influenced your music?
For sure. I’ve been very lucky to be around amazing people, amazing music, and amazing places that I all wrap together when I sit down to write my next song.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
I have two uvulas.
Anything you’d like to add?
