What's up Mercury! Is there a story behind your new single? How long did it take you to make this single/album?
I actually wrote this song a while ago but I felt that it was an important time to release it and share it with the world.
What do you enjoy most about your artistry? I.E. Creating music, the process, the fame, the recognition, co-writing? Etc.
Writing lyrics that wake me up and helping others articulate their truth and tell their story.
Who or what most inspires your song-writing?
The truth I feel I need to hear but don’t want to tell myself.
Are you working on any collaborations? If not, would you like to? – With who?
Yes I’m grateful to be working with many talented creatives at the moment and I’m driven to work with people that inspire me. People that chase new ideas and great music.
What are your upcoming tour/performance plans?
Live streams until the end of COVID-19!
How much do you let critics affect your music? Do you find it hard to focus on the positive side of things, and if so – how do you keep yourself motivated to keep going?
I remind myself why I make music and why I am doing what I’m doing.
How important do you feel social media is in your career? Do you enjoy it? Please expand upon your opinions, and what you’ve learned while making music in 2020.
Social Media is revolutionary for artists and I think it has been very important
to the growth Mercury and the Architects, but no I do not enjoy it.
I believe it is disrupting the way humans connect and exploiting our human desires.
It’s good and it’s bad all depending on how we use it.
Finally, where would you like to see yourself five years from now and what's your ultimate ambition as an artist?
My ultimate ambition as an artist is to write songs and create experiences that awaken and heal people around the globe.
