Interviews

Today in our interview section we have a talented music artist Danjul with us. Let’s have a chat with him.

Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
Danjul : I started pursuing music in 2008 finding producers to demo me and build my craft. I was very new and didn’t know if I had talent lol until I met my producer Matthew Nelson in 2010 and he saw something in me nobody else did. I wrote my own songs and did my own vocal melodies. Plus I already knew how every song should sound and feel like….Matthew was the only one who understood me and he helped create my unique sound.

Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Danjul : I always was determined, growing up I self taught myself how to dance, write, and sing…my parent didn’t have money to put me into classes. But watching artist like MJ, Brandy, Justin Timberlake inspired me. I heard a lot of bad things on the “business” side of the industry but I was always drawn to the idea of sharing your talent to inspire others.

Twist Online : You released a CD a couple of months ago titled ‘ Origin of times ‘. Tell us a little about that. Any particular track from the CD that’s your favorite??
Danjul : Origin of Times is my very first cd project ever! It was suppose to be one song but it ended up being a passion “Dark Disney” vibe project with Matt and I..it took me 3 years to complete due to personal and insecurities but it’s done! And available for FREE on SoundCloud. It’s very difficult to say which is my favorite because I put so much into all of them. There all very different and very special to me.

Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Danjul : The response has been crazy! And it’s still not really out due to lack of promoting but it’s been received very well! Music blogs are finally starting to hear about it.
