Ryan Playground: Interview

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

Inspiration : Fiction

Passion : Fruit

Strength : Ant

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

I’m me, nothing more, nothing less.

Why do you do what you do?

I do it because I love it. When I feel something, I do it ; if I don’t feel it, I don’t do.

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

- Since the first time I hit on a drum at 5 years old.

- My first concert in my basement of my first compositions made me feel this vibe of the scene, believe it or not. It was just there somewhere in me I guess.

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

I don't want to be perceived as a model before a musician. I don’t want to hide myself as a model, it has been a part of my life since a while, but music is what truly defines me.

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

-     Way to many things inspired me ; I wont go deep into that question. I would say mostly people that are looking forward

-     I think I might have yes.

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

- Playing not knowing how to use the actual gear in its totality ; it’s very useful to know how every buttons can save a show haha.

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

-     Soon shooting / releasing a new video that will be unreal

-     Releasing a first Ep by the beginning of summer

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

- Believe in your strengths, take your weakness as inspirations to do better, and don’t place yourself in the shadow of anyone. There will always be bigger than you, but think big.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Bubble Tea is the shit.
