Today on our Hot Seat we have Gabriel Savage with us. He has recently release the track ‘Stay Awake’. Lets have a chat with him.
Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Gabriel Savage : Hi readers, my name is Gabriel Savage. I’m a music producer and songwriter from Vancouver, Canada.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Gabriel Savage : I was always around music as a kid, but my big thing was always songwriting. I approached electronic music production after years of writing and singing with bands… and now a days I focus on producing and am seeking out other artists to work with.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release ‘Stay Awake’ ?
Gabriel Savage : Well it’s my first release of 2017… it’s a bit of a moody psychedelic pop song, or at least that’s the vibe I get from it.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Gabriel Savage : Right now it’s only available on YouTube, but I’ve sent it out to a few stations and they’ve been playing it, so that’s always a good sign! It’ll be available everywhere else by the beginning of the month… I just wanted to boost my YouTube views a bit!
Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
Gabriel Savage : Apples and oranges.
Twist Online : Do you write songs for other artists as well ?
Gabriel Savage : I have, but that’s all I can say.
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
Gabriel Savage : I listen to everything. When I was a kid i loved the beegees and funk, as a teenager i got into classic rock, blues and jazz… then I realized that all my favorite artists weren’t putting out any new material anytime soon, so I got into pop! but i think the last thing I played on spotify was the greatest hits of the Steve Miller Band, and before that I was on a Springsteen binge.
Twist Online : Do you have plans for any musical collaborations in near future?
Gabriel Savage : Yes, lots. But again, that’s really all I can say.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Gabriel Savage : Yeah. I’d like to get some music videos out, and I’d like to start putting out more content on YouTube. It would also nice to be finally verified by twitter… but I’ll just continue to wait patiently! haha
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project? Or planning any tour?
Gabriel Savage : I’ve got a number of songs i need to finish, and a bunch more in my head that I need to get out. I’d like to tour, but right now I’m busy producing, finding artists to work with and waiting for a song or two to be picked up by a TV show or commercial or something, haha.
