Jeremy Stott: Interview

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

An artist….Someone who loves what they do.

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

Im someone who works hard and is always striving to be the best at

what i do. Being humble and modest are some things i base my life

around.

Why do you do what you do?

When it comes to music, I love seeing people having a good time

while I’m playing. I’d rather play to a club of 50 people who are

thoroughly enjoying it and connecting with me than a festival crowd

of 5000 fist pumping. I feel like the people that come up after i play

and say how much the enjoyed it, keeps me coming back for more.

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

I think after my first time playing in front of a crowd was the time i

said I want more of this. The support of many people who helped

me out in the start inspired me. I’ve had a lot of great people teach

me along the way.

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

Has to be the passing of my father about 6 years ago. Music in

general helped me out through the difficult time.

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

Inspiration has come from many different people, I dont think i

could say one person has been my only inspiration. I feel like as a

kid growing up listen to classic rock, that would have been my first

inspiration musically

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

I wouldn't call them mistakes id say learning experiences haha….

playing to your crowd is something I've really gotten better at over

the years. Starting out, i kind of played what i wanted to hear.

Watching some of our top class DJ’s in Toronto and how they read

the crowd has taught me a great deal.

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

Me and Norm Rocheleau have a ep thats almost done. Other than

that, i have a few other tracks I've been working on that i plan to

release soon.

This should be a big summer event wise, Garden Of Eden was one

of my favourite shows last summer and ill be playing the 3 day

camping festival again this summer.

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

Be humble, take advice from others and always learn new things.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Looking forward to seeing everyone out this spring and summer!
