What’s your name, how old are you, and what exactly do you do?
My name is Photon Tide I was born tomorrow and I’m a vocalist an engineer and a graphic artist among other things.
Where are you from? Do you think your surroundings shaped you in any way creatively? In what way?
I’m from central California, 831 area and I don’t really think my surrounding’s sound influenced my style cause most of it is Bay Area sound. The surrounding landscapes on the other hand did. From beautiful beaches to cliffs. I would find myself outside a lot, with friends meeting up to smoke at some beach or cliff and make music.
How long have you been creating music?
I have been making music for about 6 years now but releasing for 3 (deleted almost everything)
What inspired you to make music in the first place? What continues to inspire you?
I got inspired to make music by simply hearing music and finding new artists. I remember being young and hearing music from Radiohead, Slipknot, Bone Thugs and I always thought it was so cool how you could hear things and feel a certain way.
What are some of your long term goals? If you can see 5 years into the future, where would you hope to be?
Some long-term goals would be (like most people) to be able to live off music and art. To live doing what I love to do and to still have the same love for it then as I do now. Also to inspire people and show you don’t have to look a certain way or follow a certain trend to make it.
Are there any producers in particular that you want to work with one day?
Some producers I would like to work with would be JPEGMAFIA, bearxo, Kenny Beats, thundercat, and surfing.
What has been the most rewarding moment for you in your journey this far?
The most rewarding moment was probably all of last year. Finally picking up some traction and getting people to listen. That will always be an unreal feeling to me, having people listen to something I made in my room.
Any projects in the works for the year?
I hope to drop 2 projects this year with a few EPs and a lot of singles. Also, I wanna get my music video game up this year so expect a lot more music videos.
