Artist INTERVIEW: JULIANDER
1. Hey Juliander, super nice to have the chance to chat with you! First and foremost what got you into music?
Hey, thank you for having me! I’ve always been interested in music and especially the creative side of it. Never did sports as a kid, instead I sang, danced or did theater. I love every element of music. The lyrics, production and performance. I was fortunate enough to see a lot of live shows as a kid and I think that has inspired me a lot as well.
2. Can you write what was your best performance in your career? How do you remember it? The most memorable show I’ve done is probably when I got the chance to perform at Coachella with Alan Walker and Noah Cyrus. It was such a surreal experience and I can’t wait to do it again. So much adrenaline and a real dream come true. The entire crowd sang along to All Falls Down and it was magical.
3. What memorable responses have you had to your work?
I get really happy when people are touched by my lyrics. I’ve seen people crying at my shows and I think that’s beautiful. I usually get responses regarding my vocals and that feels very special as an artist.
4. Do you think that technology is improving lives?
I’m happy that technology has made it easier for me to have daily contact with my grandparents. So regarding that I would say that it’s improving lives. But I think it’s healthy to take a bit of a break from technology some times. Meditation is a good de-stresser for me.
5. Do you have a mentor or coach?
I’ve had several throughout my career that have taught me many valuable things but currently I’m going off of my own intuition.
6. What are you most proud of?
I’m currently very proud of my new project. It’s been a dream come true to be able to take an idea and make it into a reality by myself. I have written, produced, performed, done all the visuals and released on my own label and I am very proud of that.
7. How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
The internet has made it possible for whoever has a phone and internet connection to become the biggest artist on the planet. Which is huge. This also means that there is a lot more music being made and it’s more difficult to be heard. I guess there’s always gonna be a good and a bad side to it but I think we’re in a really interesting time.
8. What are you doing to ensure you continue to grow and develop as an artist?
Just keeping on creating. When I first started I barely knew how to sing. Then I practiced everyday and finally found my voice. Then I started to write songs and got better and better. Now I’m able to produce, write and perform my own songs. I’ve experimented a lot with content creation this year which is one of my new passions. When I feel that I’ve become good at something I just keep on trying to find more things to take my creative skills to the next level
