Hi Abe, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’ve been crazy busy, but it’s paying off and I’m in a great spot. Really excited for the future.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “I Don’t Got The Money (Or The Time)”?
This song comes from my frustrations with time restraints and lack of funds in the recent months; having no time and no money to do the things you love. Being stressed out takes a toll on creativity, but I forced myself to sit down and create instrumentals every night after work in the small amounts of time that I had. After dozens of song concepts in the garbage, this one finally clicked and pieced itself together.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
No specific event, but the stressful months leading up to me creating the track. The lyrics and vibe of the song are a reflection of how I felt when I finally made the song. After scrapping so many ideas I was so excited to create a sound that fit me as an artist, but frustrated that I only had bits and pieces of time to work on it.
How was the recording and writing process?
It was super spontaneous and a lot of fun. When I finished piecing the instrumental together it all fell into place pretty quickly. My emotions and frustrations wrote the song for me.
How much are hoping to experiment and explore others sonic worlds in the future?
A lot of the projects I have in the works right now are pretty experimental. I’m trying to find a sound that really fits me as an artist. I’m mostly looking into experimenting with different subgenres of pop, while including elements of dance music to keep the songs stage friendly.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
For sure! I’m planning a few different projects for the near-ish future. You can expect another single or two, and another EP.
What aspect of life you would be touching on this new material?
Although I’ve been crazy stressed and crazy busy lately, I’ve been in a really good place and I’ve been discovering a lot about myself and my art. I’m carrying this theme of self discovery and self confidence with me into my new projects.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
It’s hard to say at this point, but you can expect new tunes within the next few months.
Any plans to hit the road?
I’m currently planning a local tour and some bigger venues around Wisconsin. Make sure to follow me on socials and spotify for future updates!
What else is happening next in Homeworld’s world?
I’m lucky enough to be a part of some really huge projects that will be seeing the light of day soon. Stay tuned!
