We were fortunate enough to interview rising artist - sexjacket, upon the release of his new single, 'Too Much'.
When did you realise that you had a passion for music?
I guess I’ve always really had a passion for music honestly it’s kind of always got me through the hard times and music has a way of making me feel not alone, but if I had to put an age or a date on it I would probably say when I was in like 2nd grade I would always listen to the radio in my room as a kid and I would rewrite lyrics of popular songs and that just really was so much fun for me so I kept it going.
Who are your main inspirations as an artist?
Aw man, that’s a hard one haha. My most influential inspirations I would probably say are Blackbear, Lil Peep, Nirvana, and Linkin Park. They all had such an amazing talent of conveying emotional and relatable aspects into their music.
What would you like to achieve as an artist?
See this is kind of an iffy subject Because I Don’t really want to be famous nor in the spotlight at all. I just want to be able to make a decent living off of solely music alone someday.
What is your most memorable moment while being an artist?
My most memorable moment of being an artist is probably the performance at warehouse Live in Houston TX a couple years ago. It was crazy man, like people were really really digging it and so many people came up to me and said how much they liked my set afterwards and even bought me drinks haha that was dope.
Tell us a little more about your recent project?
So as far as a recent project goes, I actually rebranded myself and started making music under “sexjacket” now as it was different for years. So I’m actually starting over from scratch with a whole new game plan. I am working on an album right now but I have released 2 singles this month which are on all streaming platforms you can find them here https://open.spotify.com/artist/3HoWgFrKeOQFaT5kjeNvKy?si=xxhbID-gSNOrAv31Wev6Eg They are basically just my own thoughts on how hard it is for my generation to grow up and be understood in the crazy world we live in today.
What should we be looking forward to from you in the future?
You should absolutely keep in tune and be ready for the great stuff I have coming up!
Is there anything else you would like to tell our readers?
I have some very special music coming soon that I am so excited to share with the world! Follow my Instagram to keep updated on me ! @sexjacketoffical
