FUZZ SPOTLIGHT: KEVIN TANKUS
F: For now let’s start with the question: ‘What sparked your musical journey?’
KT: I found friendship in the musical artists that I listen to even though I’ve never met any of them, and there’s been this want of being able to be that artist for someone else, I wanna be something they can find a friend in and turn to when they need to, like how those artists I listened to were there for me.
F: I think you nailed an essential point of why we have the relationship we do with music. It’s one of the rare ways we ate still transmitting that human connection digitally. Cool, so you got inspired to pick up an instrument and teach yourself to play? Did you start playing with anyone? What’s been your progression after you got inspired?
I WANNA BE SOMTHEING THEY CAN FIND A FRIEND IN AND TURN O WHEN THEY NEED TO."
KT: No I don’t really play any instruments, I’m just grabbing beats from Youtube at the moment, as for my progression, I’m still doing the same of going to YouTube for beats and coming up with lyrics, but I mean I love it and its fun to me and that’s what matters.
F: I love the resourcefulness. Gotta start somewhere right ?! Very cool. So when it’s come to connecting with other musicians, have you had difficulty? Is FUZZ kinda your first step into taking your music outside of the bedroom? What would you like to accomplish on here?
KT: It’s been very easy connecting on here with other artists, even if we aren’t' making a song together just talking to people and making connections is great
F: Awesome, exactly the kinda stuff we want to hear. (Check’s in the mail, Kevin :-) ) How about the song you have posted, wanna tell us a little bit about it?
"EVEN IF WE AREN'T MAKING A SONG TOGETH JUST TALKING TO PEOPLE AND MAKING CONNECTIONS IS GREAT "
KT: For my song titled “We Can Be Something” it’s about a girl who I was friends with and had a crush on at the time. It’s not out on anything at the moment, maybe I’ll upload it to my Soundcloud as I’ve been kinda lagging on uploading my work on there haha.
F: The next SoundCloud sensation! Can’t wait! Ya I heard the other song you had posted as well, it definitely sounds like you have your direction set on, which is one of the hardest humps to get over. Then you can just keep building from there and honing the craft. Welp, that really about does, Kevin. Thanks for taking the time to talk with us and hopefully FUZZ continues to help you progress in your musical journey, and we’re excited to watch it unfold!
