We were lucky enough to be able to interview rising star Emmanuel Nwamadi to get the low down on his up-coming event and what we can expect from his BlueJay sessions.
I’m really about evoking deep emotion in my music, I feel great pleasure in doing this, because I listen to very deep emotional songs and it puts me in a state where I feel happy. I don’t know what it is, emotional music, does the opposite to what it does to the majority, it just makes me feel so happy about life.
It brought me great confidence, I really didn’t believe in my sound until having the opportunity to be on the show. Reading the YouTube comments and seeing how people received what I did, really gave me the confidence I needed to actually take music seriously, as I feel it was a huge hobbies of mine, but I didn’t really believe it could turn out to be what it is now. In terms of changing my sound, I wouldn’t say it has, because I’m content in the sound I have at this present moment.
You suggested songs you liked, the team did the same, then they talk to the big guys and they pick from it, so they work around you. My favourite song was Sade “Sweetest Taboo” Otiz Redding “I’ve been loving you”
Grunge Bands such Alice In Chains and Nirvana
Theme music in video games and friends really. I actually found Alice in Chains in a game called “Burn Out Paradise”
Lil Peep “The Way I See Things” Mage “The Words I Never Said “ and some unreleased songs I plan to get out
Shristi Jade, we’re able to work organically and be honest with what works and what doesn’t
Layne Staley From Alice In Chains
Crazy Town “changes” Lil Peep “The Way I See Things” Electus “To A Friend” “Shristi Jade “Own”
And my own song “Cant Help The Way I Feel” 😉
