Ambitions

in the long run, to be a global indie name. but for now, I'll feel like I've made it as an artist as long as my music resonates with at least one person. whether that is helping them out of a difficult phase or simply just, them really enjoying my music.

Challenges

honestly, my biggest challenge has been my genre. its just not a style of music that's very well received in the local music scene, making traction incredibly hard to gain. another huge challenge was finding like minded musicians, with the same level of passion, to help me execute my music live. as, unlike in the studio, where its just me, I need a band to play my music live. fortunately, our live performances have been quite well received. and, although I haven't released much yet, the feedback Read more...

Performance Atmosphere

ethereal soundscapes, noise and purple. lots and lots of purple. and of course, a lack of sobriety ( I play indie, psychedelic rock and shoegaze. what did you expect?)

Achievements

I once released a song named 'parting song' under the alias 'ryeah' which was featured on rolling stone magazine and played on the radio. that was pretty sick, however its one of my least favourite works as it just doesn't represent me as an artist. I have since strayed away from the alias and release my newer works under this one.
