TADI CIRUS: Interview



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

Life, music, family

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

I’m a tree : rooted in the ground, I don’t care about the dogs pee

Why do you do what you do?

I was born a musician, and I’ll die a musician

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

I started to play at 9, I learnt to play all the instruments alone. I was on stage with my father at 15, to replace a guitarist. That’s when I knew I’d never stop playing. Writing, composing, been inspired.

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

Family, lack of money, … My wife helped me, accompanied me and let me be who I am. We met on stage ! She is a musician too !

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

Every artist that I’ve had the pleasure to discover, listen to, see on stage… If I ever inspired anyone, I don’t know ! Please, if that “someone” exists, let me know !

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

Been surrounded by toxic people is the biggest mistake. What I learnt : trust my choices, and go forward. Live in the moment.

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

Yes ! A wonderful concert film about life in the coal mines in the north of France. Release : end of 2015.

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

Size the moment, choose your friends, do what you were made for.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I’m not a great talker, I’m a singer and a listener (and I’m a joker !)
