FUZZ SPOTLIGHT: JOSE APACHE
Updated: May 9, 2021
F: When did you realize you wanted to start creating your own music?
J: Id say around 2012, my senior year of high school, when i started playing guitar in a band. I’ve been songwriting off and on for years since then
F: Excellent, and is the song you have up from that band? Or is this a new project?
"i started playing guitar in a band. I’ve been songwriting off and on for years since..."
J: No, Its from a solo project I started late last year under the name José Apache, I got the name from a game we used to play in school where we’d make up pornstar names from our middle names and the street we grew up on and i grew up on apache st lol
F: Interesting...certainly one way to get a band name. So did you record all the instruments yourself?
F: Impressive! So what has your journey been like up to this point? Going from band to solo, and you mentioned 'on and off', can you elaborate on your experience so far?
" I’ve never really been consistent at making and releasing music it’s more of a craft that I’m refining in my free time."
J: Well the band i was in wasn’t very serious about making music. we were just high schoolers fucking around we never even recorded anything lol but it got me really into making music and I’ve been collecting gear and making songs on the side since by on and off i mean I’ve never really been consistent at making and releasing music it’s more of a craft that I’m refining in my free time. I really wanna start a solid band this year i miss playing music live lol
F: Right, it's been tough to find people to play music with(especially now). Let alone booking a live concert. FUHGET ABOUT EHT. Have you been focusing on aspects of your music more during quarantine, or has it been business as usual?
J: Yeah I’ve had more time to experiment for fun and I’ve also made a kinda blueprint of my next project with the free time I’ve had.
F: Great! What's that roadmap look like? Record everything solo again? Release on a platform?
J: Yeah pretty much lol. I got the bare bones of all these songs done(like verses and choruses) now i just wanna add more layers and sprinkle around odd samples to get them all to flow together effortlessly. Yeah I’m gonna have to record everything solo again with all the social distancing going on lol and yeah I’ll definitely release this on all music streaming platforms again
" I really wanna start a solid band this year i miss playing music live "
F: Epic! Do you plan to find new musicians to play live with you when things open up? Or do you have a some connections already in mind?
J: A lil bit of both imma ask some close friends first and whatever position I need to fill I’ll try n reach out
F: Well uhhhh hey...😅maybe someone on FUZZ can help out🔥🔥! Good luck with your endeavor, Jose. We'll keep an eye out for the album!
