Music is something that stands out the most when its fresh. When the song, as well as the artist has an approach to the music, that makes it feel like new life as you take in sounds like never before. When an artist is able to shine in their own approach, it gives you a reason to keep coming back and that is what makes Zaram truly “ShinE!” with his latest release. A must hear record that engaged us so much we wanted to know more about this creative and he was gracious enough to take time to answer some questions for us. Below is in the interview.
Who is Zaram?
I am a 21 year old artist/producer from Nigeria, based in Los Angeles. I make “feel good” energetic ethereal music for all faces.
Who are some of your influences, and how do you incorporate them into your music?
My biggest influences have to be artists like: Kanye West, Tyler the Creator, Pharrel William, Teezo Touchdown, Ecco2k, Bladee, Yung Lean, and many more. I really try to go for the spacey synth sounds that just feel like home to me, and those artists have done a fantastic job in making me fall in love with that type of music.
What was your favorite part of creating your new song “ShinE!”?
My favorite part has to be the production process. The moment I finished making that beat, I knew that this was going to be a one of a kind song.
How did you know it was time to release it?
I knew it was time to release the song the moment when what I had in my head matched what it sounded like in real life. I am somewhat of a perfectionist and really don’t like to put out stuff that doesn’t 100% feel right to me.
What is the biggest thing you want people to take away from your music?
I just want people to really just resonate with content within the song. I aim for my songs to be very emotional for multiple situations in both lyrics and vibe, so I hope the listener could use that as some sort of support for whatever they are currently feeling.
If you could give an upcoming artist any advice what would it be?
Be original. A bad song that is unique has more impact than a good song that is a clone of everyone else. It’s okay to be inspired, just make sure to add a unique twist to what you put out.
What is next for Zaram?
I’m involving myself in many projects at the moment. I’m doing everything from working on merch, locking in with other artists, and putting out more singles. I’m rarely ever not busy working on my craft.
