Music: Interview with Canadian artist and musician The Feasting

We've had the pleasure of interviewing a new artist from Canada. Check out what he has to say about his music!

Please tell us a little about your background and where you are from.
I'm 26 years old, from Ontario, Canada, a small town called Exeter. I've been making all types of different music since I was 14 years old, playing in bands and solo acts as well.

What made you fall in love with music and play?
The feeling when you write a song and show some people, and they dig it and just the feeling I get from making music.

Who was your greatest influence to follow in the music career? Why?
My mom and grandmother, who bought me my first electric guitar.

How nice! What is your favorite musical genre and why?
I like all types of music other than country, and I like rap, metal and punk as well. 

When was the first time you performed live and how did you feel?
When I was 15, I performed in a band called Damage Remains at a big birthday bash for my drummer's mom.

Is there a specific performance you feel was your best so far? If so, where and why? 
A live show in an apartment building with my last band Terror Slug. We have been played on radio stations in the United Kingdom , Scotland, and Japan.

That's exciting! What do you enjoy the most about your interaction with the fans?
The pure joy that people get from listening to music.

Music does inspire, so how do you draw inspiration to write your music? 
I listen to music I enjoy and then find the perfect beat for the lyrics, or just writing down lyrics sometimes gives you great ideas.

What are you working on now and what are your plans for the future?
I just released a 4 track EP called Wilderness. I also dropped a new freestyle track before I start working on the album cover for my first full album which is half done as we speak. Just a few more tracks left and will be released.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Believe in yourself because anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
