ARTIST BACKGROUND

 

Chad Lewine has recently released his latest track entitled '35'. I was really intrigued to find out what the symbolism was behind the number as it features in the track title and in all of the cover art. So, let's get into this review and then onto an exclusive TJPL NEWS interview with the one and only Chad Lewine!


 


 

35

REVIEW

 

'35' is a track that instantly hits listeners with heavy bass and trap loops before introding the vocals very quickly. The whole vibe of the song is heavy and catchy through the use of futuristic synths, heavy bass elements and enticing vocals. It's very clear that this artist wants to buy a house before the age of 35 and from the energy of this piece I wouldn't doubt it for a second. There are several vocal switches in this track that offer something new and exciting. I was definitely singing along. Do we think I'm going to buy a house by 35 too? Best get it onto my vision board! I love this track and I'll be looking out for Chad Lewine's future manifestations for sure! I decided to reach out to the artist himself to find out some of the inspiration behind his musical journey, so make sure that you scroll down to have a read after you've checked out the track of course!


 

INTERVIEW

 

What would be your ultimate achievement for your latest single? Is there a particular vision that you had when putting the song together?


I had a very clear vision. Ideally, I will generate enough income from this single era to put a down payment on a house. Simple and clear as that!


I love that! If you could define music in one short sentence (no cheating) what would you say?


Music (sound) is an audible form of the energy that all life is made from.


One artist you would bring back to life?


Let sleeping dogs lie. The energy of every passed artist is still around. We can tap into their energy just by thinking of them and asking for their influence. They will return to Earth in another form if they so chose to.


When did you first realise that you had the potential to be an artist? Is there a memory that has stuck in your mind as the turning point for you?


No specific time was a turning point. I was 5 years old and knew it. I think most performers know it when they are that young. I did start taking music seriously in 2008/2009, so that may be a point of reference. Since then, it has been a steady flow.


Do you play any instruments? If not, is there a specific one that you'd like to learn?


No and nope. I have a Kaossilator Pro, and I am probably the best Kaossialtor player in the world since it is so odd and rare LOL. I always felt like I missed out on learning an instrument but lately have learned and accepted that I have a strength, performing, and I can rely on others with different strengths to complete my musical visions. I took guitar and saxophone lessons for about a year each, but singing, songwriting and performing are my instruments. I know my way around Ableton and a keyboard, but I am never going to spend the time becoming the best at any of that. I chose to become the best at those three previous crafts.


How would you define your sound?


I don't define it. I've always struggled with that. My description always changed and was heavily based on outside input. My sound doesn't have a box, like many artists these days. We are entering a post-genre world of music. It is about the energy an artist brings, not necessarily their consistent sound. I like to use different sounds all the time. I don't have one guitar that shapes my sound. Which can also be a drawback if not accepted and utilized correctly. I like to use Michael Jackson as an example. He started with a very consistent sound, but by the mid 90s, the sound / genre was fluid. The constant was hium, his voice, his lyrics, his mission. Same goes with my music.


What is the biggest challenge you've faced as an artist?


Exposure. But I am starting to see I think it was my self worth. It was buried very deep, that I didn't feel worthy. I feel worthy now. My dreams and the means to reach them are finally aligning. I see that with this release. All of my energy, intention and attention was consistent throughout the production of the entire release, from recording to art to merch to social. It's all tied together, and I feel good about that for the first time.


What are your future plans? What can we look forward to for the rest of 2022?


I hope to release one more single this year. I hope to perform as much as possible. I want to go on tour opening for a more popular act. I want to keep my goals realistic and continue to maintain my financial stability. Maintaining my mental health is #1 priority so all of this can continue to expand.


Where would you like to be 5 years from now?


I'd like to be living comfortably on music/art and working with my favorite artists and other upcoming artists. I want to be financially free to do what I please and use my energy to help the world.
