Songweb: Describe your background and who you are.
Silas: I’m a musician, producer, and songwriter from London. I’ve been a punk rock drummer, keyboardist, backing singer, and now a solo artist writing and releasing my music.
Songweb: What inspired you to pursue music?
Silas: My parents, my friends. I grew up surrounded by music and made a decision early on to submerge myself in music in everything I do.
Songweb: What is it about music that evokes such strong emotions in you?
Silas: The harmonies, melodies, lyrics, and grooves. Music is the art form I find most expressive, it hits a nerve and strikes a chord deep in my soul.
Songweb: Describe the steps you take to create a new song.
Silas: I usually start with an idea in my head that I put down in my phone, either lyrics in my notes or a rough melody audio recording. I like to live with it for a while and chip away at it, sculpting the song in my head when I’m traveling, or often late at night/early morning when I can’t sleep. A lot of my songs become whole at 4 am, then I’m ready to record a demo and take it to the next stage.
Songweb: Describe your newest song, “So Much For Love (Aymen Valentino Remix) ” for us.
Silas: It’s a jungle/breakbeat meets liquid drum and bass track. Aymen Valentino took the original hip-hop ballad version of So Much For Love and flipped it on its head, adding a live trumpet, fast-paced drums, and processing the vocals to make something entirely new.
Songweb: What societal impact do you expect “So Much For Love (Aymen Valentino Remix)” to have?
Silas: I hope it helps people going through a breakup. It’s a sad banger, the type of song to give a voice to people who feel silenced by heartbreak.
Songweb: What do you hope the critics will say about your newest song?
Silas: I hope they say it’s dope and a refreshing departure from my usual sound, a different side to me that I’m excited to explore further.
Songweb: Identify the best and worst aspects of being a musician.
Silas: The best part is creating something personal and putting it out into the world. The worst parts are the anxiety, financial burden, and lack of support for independent artists.
Songweb: What can we do to support your career advancement?
Silas: Pay for my music, spread the word to more people, become a genuine fan and support every release.
Songweb: Describe your future artistic plans.
Silas: I’m recording my debut album in January, due for release in summer 2023. Lots of collaborations, interludes, and DIY music videos. Hopefully, more live shows and serious artist management/representation to help take my career to the next level.
