David Robyn Interview
1.) How are you keeping during the times of the pandemic?
To be honest, surpisingly I've been keeping well. I thought that I would go crazy from being in isolation and not having much of a social life. But seeing friends and family on Zoom make me feel more connected to people more than ever. I mean there is the weight gain as well...
2.) What first got you into music?
My dad is a musician. He is a guitarist/vocalist and he actually taught me how to write my own music. But the exposure really began with school. In elementary throughout high school, I was always heavily into music. Vocal. band, third stream, chamber choirs, etc. Growing up I was just always performing in talent shows.
3.) What is your creative process like?
It's very random. I need to be in a mood and very vunerable for me to come out with a complete track. I tend to start on a song and then I would leave it half finished because I think there's no potential in it or not my style. But usually a glass of wine and pumpkin spice scented candles get me in the groove.
4.) Who would you most likely collaborate with?
The one and only Nelly Furtado. I admire her work so much. She is a true, organic arist that never repeats herself. Her songwriting is amazing! Plus she's Canadian like myself. Other artists I would love to work with would be Kehlani, Timbaland and Tinashe.
5.) What happened between 2018's release "Messed Up" to your latest release "Temptation"?
Honestly a lot happened. I was stuck and confused. For a while I didn't know who I was as an artist. I just put out "Messed Up" because it was easy and cute. It took me sometime, but now I'm in a good place with my music. My peak sound hasn't been reabched yet but I feel like I'm going in the right direction.
6.) How would you describe your music?
Honest. I like to tell it how it is and I've always been that kind of person. If you ask me for my opinion I won't be sugar-coating anything at all. But my genre of music I feel like is very pop, but I tend to play with Contemporary R&B sounds/elements.
7.) What's next for you?
Music, music and more music! There's too little of me out there and I want to put out as much as I can. I want people to connect with my art as much as possible and just enjoy the journey. I'm excited for what is to come. In regards to the world of acting, I'm definitely up to doing more gigs. Right now, I'm letting my music side have it's spotlight.
Music to be released on Oct 30th 2020.
