Jutes: Interview

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

Bad tattoos

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

A longhaired, out of shape, slick talking fellow who’s always generous to friends, strangers and in bed.

Why do you do what you do?

Because real life isn’t as fun as the one I made up in my head.

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

The first time I wrote a song it felt like a lightning bolt struck the tip of my..... And well I just knew, or at least strongly believed I’d be ok at this in due time. It all started when I was at college living in rez. I quickly realized I just don’t have to ability to put my heart into things unless I’m doing them by choice. So to take myself away from the assignments I was told to complete, I wrote rap songs making fun of myself and my lifestyle so I could send them to friends. The rest is history, pretty irrelevant history at this point but one day it’ll be worth something I’m sure.

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

Nothing has happened to me in music yet that was all that tough to deal with. What set me back in music and life in general was when one of my best friends, Theo Giannou aka BootyMeat, died in August 2013 in a car crash. Nothing in my life could have prepared me for losing a brother so young. The only thing I knew how to do was make a song for him. He was also one of my biggest supporters in music. Booty actually wanted to manage me early on in my career. So in his memory Rubber Buzzard (my guitar player who also has the voice of an angel) and I made a song and video called “Oh Theo.” LOVE YOU ALWAYS BOOTY BABY!

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

It’s corny but my dad is the reason I take so many chances in life. He’s always been a dream chaser and growing up with a guy like that rubs off on you. I never was taught to believe I had to be anything other than what I want in life. When I dropped out of school to pursue music my mom was definitely uneasy and didn’t love the idea of me bailing for something I wasn’t even good at yet. But at the end of the day my parents just said, “we know you’re going to do what you want so if you’re doing music just be the best at it.”

As far as me inspiring anyone directly… I was at the bar a couple months ago in Ottawa all drunk talking to this mom. She had asked to see my knuckle tattoos and said “you know those don’t wash off right.” She then told me I remind her of her son because he refuses to cut his hair. The next 10 minutes were filled with me giving the parental pep talk of a lifetime. “Your son can change the world, but you have to let him. If he isn’t hurting anybody then let him be who ever he wants and not who you might have had in mind.” She then looked deep into my drunken lazy eyes and said, “You’re a very inspiring person you know that?”

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

I’d say my mistake is releasing music before I was even remotely good at rapping. I was biased and thought it was dope at the time, but it wasn’t and your debut is huuuge. You have everyone’s attention when you come out of the closet of rap and announce you are now no longer the kid they may have sat beside in English class, but in fact about to be the next rap god. Everyone is curious and will check it out. If it’s really dope then they tell everyone they know because people love to know the guy/girl who’s going to be famous. If it’s not dope they will chuckle and move on.

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

My free album “Breadcrumbs” is dropping on Tuesday, Oct. 28th and will be available for purchase on iTunes if you for whatever reason still pay for music and get off on supporting starving artists. It is also going to be available for FREE at JutesMusic.com.
PS. If you download it for free but tell me you bought it on iTunes I’ll literally be non the wiser and probably give you a bear hug and potentially an opened mouth kiss. Just sayin.

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

I’d tell people to be happy at any means necessary. Don’t twist that though and be like “Oh, so what if killing people makes you happy Jutes!?” I mean as long as you aren’t hurting people, do what ever it takes. Happiness = Success… not the other way around. So waiting until you’re successful to be happy will never work.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Much love to my JutesFam, my family for being trill as shit and to Babes & Gents for shining some light on the kid. But most of all thank you to the people who didn’t know who I was before reading this and actually read through all the horse shit I just wrote, you may have no life but I really do love you.
