Birthday Boy: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration- music. Passion- Love. Strength- pain.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

Birthday Boy, the gold plated emoji

Why do you do what you do?

No other choice! Can’t not make music…

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

Since the first show we put on at 13 years old

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Just achieving a balance in life and art. Trying to never be too broke, or too busy. Creating a high quality product but also not being (too much of) a perfectionist.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Early on, I was really inspired by Spike Jonze. He just has so many fresh ideas and makes up his own techniques to pull them off. That’s in film not music, but that spirit stuck with me since the beginning. I’m also really inspired by all my talented friends, like the homie Marlon James.  

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Overworking myself: now, I try to take a day without the computer every now and then.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

My first EP (as Birthday Boy) is OUT

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Never act on someone else’s advice if it doesn’t feel right to you. Own your decisions.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Thanks for listening! Music is the best thing in the world I love everyone :)  :) :) Also, shouts to all the blogs, DJ’s, listeners, dancers, humans worldwide that have embraced the boy so far. I really appreciate it!
