Marlon James: Interview

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

Inspiration = Unfamiliar, Passion = Love, Strength = Perseverance.

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

Young boy tryna get it.

Why do you do what you do?

Can’t stop won’t stop.

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

I started playing music when I was 11 years old, and it’s all I’ve ever really cared about.

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

Working in groups and bands my whole career made going solo a difficult but rewarding transition. Having a huge network of talented musical friends (many of which are former collaborators) where everyone supports eachother was/is extremely helpful.

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

Working in recording studios and being around people in the music industry from such a young age helped me to realise how real and attainable my goals were. The people that really inspire me are some of my best friends.

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

Trust yourself. Noone knows you better than you.

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

New video and singles dropping throughout January with my brand new EP to follow. Looking to spend a lot more time on stage in 2015.

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

Make sure to be a little bit stupid sometimes it’s good for you.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

If you still haven’t bought the new D’Angelo album then fuck you x 1,000,000.
