Interview with Tim Spriggs

Love Music : Tell us a little bit about yourself. Your background, education etc. ??

I grew up in a small town, Halls Gap has a population of around 600 people. I think being creative was kind of what I did to keep myself entertained. I grew up around a lot of music and saw quite a lot of bands and artists growing up, I don't think there was any particular moment that made me decide to create music of my own. Just a collection of experiences and things that all fell into place. I've created and produced music as a hobby, on and off for around 20 years now, but I've only just decided to pursue it properly.


Love Music : We've been hearing a lot about you, so we notice you're starting to gain a lot of attention how does it feel?

To be honest I probably enjoy the creative side of music the most, theres much quicker and better ways to get attention than creating the type of music I do, in the way that I do it. I'm not a big fan of personal attention, I'd prefer if the songs themselves are what grabs peoples attention.


Love Music : Please tell us more about your EP " Something Else "? 

The EP is a collection of songs that I've mostly written over the past year, I had initially already written an EP, but decided those songs were better suited for an album. While I was in the middle of recording I was also going through and cleaning up a bunch of old songs I had, and made the last minute decision to add the last song which was written at least 4 years ago. The songs are about different things, I'll let the listener interpret it for themselves.


Love Music : Who are your musical inspirations?

I grew up listening to a lot of heavier music, only in the last 5 or so years I've gained an interest and appreciation of melody. It's amazing what you can do with the right chords and a great melody. As far as inspirations I'm inspired by whatever I hear and like, it doesn't matter who wrote it.


Love Music : Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to be a professional musician ?

I'm not sure I'm the best person to ask that question, like with anything I think the answer is to just keep learning and applying what you learn, don't give up.


Love Music : What motivates you to do your best work as producer & actor?

Why not aim big, everything you do kind of defines you. You can aim small and still fail, theres no harm in trying.


Love Music : If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

I wanted to perform on the late show with David Letterman, I loved that show ever since I was a kid and used to find ways to convince my dad to let me stay up and watch it. That's no longer a possibility, but I suppose wherever my music takes me.


Love Music : Everybody needs time out. What do you do in your free time?

I don't have a lot of hobbies outside of music, I enjoy going to the movies where you can sit down and watch without distractions, I'm also a fan of MMA. Despite the boneheaded nature of it, it's quite analytical when you get into it. I love to travel and see new places.


Love Music : What are your future plans ? Your vision for the coming years.

Theres a lot I want to do and I'd do it all if I had the time. I hope to put out a few albums, maybe write a book at some point. I think the best we can do is to just move forward.


Love Music : Are you active on social media? 

Yes you can find links to all that at www.timspriggs.com

Swedish Artist Marius Billgobenson

Swedish Artist Marius Billgobenson is a man on a mission! A mission to tour the U.S. in order to gain awareness for the Pygmy Indigenous Peoples of his native Congo with whom he spent much time during the Congo wars of his childhood. With poignant lyrics and an extraordinary talent for telling stories through his music, Billgobenson is a musician with a beautiful cause. His accomplished jazz sounds and calming smooth voice create a musical journey of serenity and joy. He will surely take the U.S. by storm when he tours in the Fall of 2018. We look forward to hearing more from this amazing artist. Listen NOW to his song THE KINGDOM OF LOVE and ENJOY! 

THE KINGDOM OF LOVE



Marius Billy (Billgobenson) creates world music in the truest sense of the phrase. The sounds of Africa are fused with jazz instrumentation and other world infuences, and expressed in music from the heart. Native beliefs and customs are intertwined with memories and life experience and the result is a groovy musical tapestry, giving voice to many indigenous peoples. 

Growing up amongst the sounds of the Congo River Basin, Marius’ own musicianship was fostered in guitar lessons from the missionaries of the former Swedish mission station in Ingoumina (Zanaga) where he was raised, and soon developed into creating music of his own. 

Working as an anthropologist, ethnomusicologist, and musician, Marius has dedicated his life and his music to bridging communities. Through his work as the director of Afrique Profonde, a non-proft organization striving to preserve the traditional culture and human rights of Pygmies in the Republic of Congo and the Congo Basin Rainforest, he has been able to achieve comprehensive archival research as well as programs in eco-tourism, artist residency, and advocacy, also establishing successful communications Marius Billgobenson between governments, NGOs, and international communities.

Marius’ eagerly awaited debut album, The Sum of My Pardon, is set for release later this year under the moniker Billgobenson, and he intends to promote both the music and awareness of indigenous rights as he tours it through Europe and the US. The album fosters connections between communities across social and cultural barriers by creating musical tours to Congo Brazzaville, facilitating exchanges between musicians based in the west and people of the Pygmy tribe.

From folk country blues through afro-beat, this album will tell a powerful story of contrast, purity, and harmony. The Sum of My Pardon exists as an expression of passion for indigenous culture, and draws inspiration and a beautiful metaphor from the social and musical harmony of the polyphonic singing of the Pygmies. 

The music of Billgobenson makes us face what we stand to lose in the silence of indigenous peoples, the custodians of signifcant alternative knowledge about both music and life.

Interview with the famous composer Chrysa Oikonomaki

Love Music : Chrysa, you are a well-known musician and composer, tell us a bit more about you. How did all start?


I was 6 years old when me and my mom went to a friend's house. They had a piano. 

She was drinking a cup of coffee with her friend when she heard someone playing "Fur Elise" so my mother said: "Your daughter plays amazing or her age". But her friend answered "It's not my daughter playing, it's your daughter!" 

And that's how it all began, cause nobody from my family knew that I was playing the piano.

Whatever I heard I could play and also improvise.



Love Music : Do you like to teach or to compose more?

My family has a long history of teachers. My aunt was an excellent teacher, my grandma was also a teacher and so on. So I have the gift of passing the knowledge to my students. I love teaching.

Composing is something completely different. I express my thoughts and my feeling through music. 

I like both the same but in a different way.




Love Music : What is the best thing you have ever heard from a student?

We seek with my students their own identity in music. This identity, I can recognize it at the very first lessons. So when they grow up to be professional musicians, I see this identity and how they make a difference at what they do. This makes me emotional. I am very proud of them.

The best thing I've heard from a student is "Thank you so much for your help. I didn't only learned music but I also found myself in it"





Love Music : Your compositions are amazing…How can someone order from you

Thank you very much. My compositions are like my children! I put all my energy and passion
to my music.

Anyone can sent me an e-mail at chrysaoikonomakimusic@gmail.com. I compose music

For theatre, film, concerts, orchestras, anything you like.!




Love Music : What people usually say for your music? How that make you feel?

Well, usually they say that it has a unique character and that motivates their feelings and their imagination.

I am touched when someone finds a part of his soul in my music. Music is a way four souls to communicate.




Love Music : Singing and Music lessons…How difficult it is online and how do you work?

It's not that difficult as it seems. In Greece lessons online aren't yet so popular but the last five years I see that more and more students prefer online lessons in order to save time. But I have the chance to work with students all around the world.

I try to do online lessons in a way that the student feels that I'm right next to him/her.

Once, At the end of the first online lesson, the student asked me to bring him a glass of water! "                     

He was so in to the lesson that he forgot that we were on the web! 
Online lessons are a great way to connect with teachers or students on the other side of the world!



Love Music : What would you advice a young musician today?

I would advise them to stay curious when it comes to music. Always learn new things, never stop learning. I would also advise them not to fear to challenge themselves, reach their limits, expand their limits. To stay modest. There is always someone better than you. Learn from him. Be a perfectionist but don't suffer from your perfectionism. Give yourself to music and accept both good and bad reviews. Ask yourself if bad reviews have truth in it and if they do, learn from this negative feedback to be better. Music is a way of living. It's not just an art. That is for all arts as well.


Love Music : Industry standards are high, how can a young musician succeed

Believe in your dreams and make your way to it day after day.



Love Music : How can people online find you?

They can visit my brand new Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/chrysaoikonomaki/

Soon my website will be online as well!



Love Music : What is your moto in life?

Today is the first day of my life.

Interview with SUAGEE ( EARNEST T. COOLEY )

" The hustle is not a hustle until we give it life. We personify the hustle
____SUAGEE


Love Music : Let’s talk a bit about your music and what is the secret behind your success ? 

No big secret. A lot of hard work, determination and perseverance. We all know that this a very tough industry to break into. Sometimes you are going to encounter problems and situations that may discourage you. These are the challenges that helps to mold character.      

Also keeping an open mind to new types of music and projects so that you don't sound so one dimensional and you are able to capture all types of listeners.




Love Music : Can you please tell our readers more about your record label ? 

My record label " PERSONIFIED HUSTLE ENTERTAINMENT "  was created to help upcoming artist and established ones for that matter to further their careers. Being an artist myself I know how important it is to have an organization that will support you in every aspect of the business. To generally pave the way so that those who may come behind me don't have such a rough road to travel.


To personify hustle means to simply bring the hustle to life. We all hustle in some shape or form. Weather its a doctor, surgeon or even a landscaper. The hustle is not a hustle until we give it life. We all personify hustle!!!



Love Music : Any new project do you have coming up ?


We have a ton of new projects that we are currently working on.  Personal projects of my own such as new singles to be released soon. May 1st 2018 we are releasing the new single " TURNT UP ". Shortly afterwards we will be releasing single " THE ONE and  I WANNA KNOW " . WE will be shooting videos for each song shortly after their release. Hopefully we will have a chance to work on putting together a documentary of my  life and achievements ( THE FAILURE THAT FAIL TO FAIL ) 

We are also working on recruiting talent as well . Not just rap artist but also country and   R & B  artist as well. From there the sky is the limit !!!!


Love Music : Please tell us more about your hit song "BAMA BOUNCE " ? 

BAMA BOUNCE is a single that comes off of the compilation titled " HERE COMES THE FLAME " wich was released in 1998. "BAMA BOUNCE " went soaring through the charts and ultimately creating a path for me and my label mates at the time. This compilation represented a first for a lot of the artist that  were featured on there such as DJ DROP , SUGA, LT, KODE RED, LARRY DUNKIN, PRETTY BLACK AND MORE...... 


Love Music : Who are your musical inspirations?

I have a lot of musical influences and inspirations. One being my late cousin ( DOE B ) who was signed to HUSTLE GANG with TI until some knuckle heads took his life about two years ago. ( R.I.P. DOE B )

Others who have inspired me would be artist like 2 PAC , B.I.G., JAY-Z , KANYE WEST, TI, OUTKAST, BONE THUGS, EIGHTBALL AND MJG , UGK  and many many more.



Love Music : Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to be a professional musician ?

My advice to anyone wanting to be a professional musician is to first make sure this is really what you want to do. This is definitely not a career choice for someone who is not ready to give a 100% 100 % of the time. learn as much as possible about the industry. Maybe find someone who has previous knowledge of the biz that they are willing to bestow upon you.

next you really want to work on perfecting your craft. This means practice , practice and more practice. Find different nitches that best represents you and your music to assure that your material stands out and is not lost in the shuffle because it has a to familiar sound to it. You want your music to really stand out so that it is able to be noticed and recognized more readily !!!!



Love Music : Have you set goals to achieve ?

YES I HAVE . Within the first 5 years of my label being established i have goals to sign at least  three acts to the roster and have released singles for each of them.Also with in that same time frame we are going to write and release my first book " THE FAILURE THAT FAIL " and within the next 5 years turn the book into a movie. 

10 - 15 years  we will be looking to open up a string of christian pool halls "Alternate Choice " or (AC ) to accommodate  christian families and allow them to get out of the house with the kids and provide them with an establishment where kids can come for tutoring or any academic assistance, good gospel entertainment with a guest speaker of some caliber every month. This is just one example  how we plan on giving back to the communities and people. Stay tuned for many . many other goals as time moves on !!!!



Love Music : If you could perform anywhere in the world , where would it have to be ?

There is no one place that i am dying to perform at . Any  time i perform any where i give it my all . No one place is just that special to me . The fans are the most important to me. So wherever i can fit the most fans ... that is where i want to perform so that we may all enjoy creating a huge memory together !!!!! I LOVE MY FANS !!!!!!!



Love Music : Please share with us your proudest moments.

I have a few proud moments. The first being when i heard my song on the radio for the first time. Really wonderful experience that i had the honor of enjoying with all my immediate family ( mom, brothers and sisters and a few close friends )

Another moment being when i held my first solo project complete and in my hands ready to go on the shelf. Coming from ALABAMA( where it was a lot harder to get into the industry ) I didn't think i would ever have my own CD ready for retail in stores.

And finally the moment when i saw my record labels name with an EIN number to officially say that my label was established. 

These are just a few proud moments of mine and  I am sure we are going to have many , many more seeing as how the label is just being started.

Interview with "Excellent Musician" Eran Sabo

Love Music : Tell us a little bit about yourself. Your background, education etc. ??


I was born and raised in Israel,in a town called Kfar Saba.
I started playing Piano in 2nd grade, but then that didn’t work out and I picked up the guitar when I was 10 years old.

I really looked up to my brother (who plays classical Piano) and to his friends which played mostly rock/pop, I wanted to be like them you know? So I started dressing up like them (Converse all star. ripped jeans, long hair and etc). My elementary school friends weren’t so sure how to…digest this!

Then before High school I auditioned for a national High School near Tel-Aviv called “Thelma Yellin”. There I started playing Jazz, and started talking music very seriously. I understood that that’s what I want to do for a living.

After high school, I was recruited to the military. (Which is mandatory in Israel).
Fortunately I passed an audition by the ministry of Education which granted my an “excellent musician” status. That allowed my to start my BFA in the Israeli Conservatory of Music in connection with the New School in NYC.

After the military I moved to New York, where I’m still at!





Love Music : Letís talk a bit about your music and your status  "Excellent Musician" ?

So basically the ministry of education chooses around 5 male and 2 female musicians (those were the numbers at the time at least) in the field of Jazz and Contemporary music. If you get granted this status, you get several privileges which allow you to go abroad for performances, study, and basically keep progressing as an artist.



Love Music : Any new project do you have coming up ?

Yes! My new project “Celestial Grounds” is about to launch very soon. Stay tuned!



Love Music : What motivates you to do your best work?

I think the desire to transform my compositions into the best -feeling and sounding- production is a huge drive. I’m involved in all aspects of producing and mixing my music, and the will to put every composition “on it’s feet” is really motivating. 



Love Music : Who are your musical inspirations?

Amm there are many. To name a few:
    John Coltrane
    The Beatles
    Radiohead
    Tinariwen
    Bach
    Eviatar Banai
    Kendrick Lamar
    Miles Davis



Love Music : What are your future plans ? Your vision for the coming years.

I want to go with my new project on the road, and reach as many people as possible!
I also really love the bands that I play guitar for, and looking forward to grow with them as well.



Love Music : Please share with us your proudest moments ?

I think participating in the “Betty Carter Jazz ahead” residency program. It was an impeccable experience, I met so many inspiring musicians, and felt really proud to be part of it.



Love Music :  If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

In the rain forest!



Love Music : Everybody needs time out. What do you do in your free time?

I do a lot of Yoga, and watch TV here and there. Huge Sopranos fan.



Love Music : Are you active on social media? 

Not super active, but I dig Instagram! I should probably be more active, I’m working on it.
