He is 20 years old and he makes beautiful music in his bedroom! We are happy to present you the talented musician – “FOREIGN REPUBLIC”
[Blaster] Thank you for your time! What music did you grow up listening to?
Foreign Republic: A lot of twenty one pilots, starset, imagine dragons, Eminem.
[Blaster] How did you become involved in music production?
Foreign Republic: In high school I made a couple of songs that were just comedic and kind of funny and it turned into this. I made the joke music for a couple of years and for a while I didn’t think that anyone would take a real song seriously. But I buckled down and improved my songwriting and I think that with each album I evolve more and more
[Blaster] How would you describe your musical style?
Foreign Republic: Very close and personal but still professional. I try a lot of different things with each song and I have a lot of obvious influences and inspiration from other artists and bands.
[Blaster] Who writes your songs?
Foreign Republic: I write all of my music. Some of these tracks are written in a day and some of them over the course of a month. It really boils down to my creative spark and how productive I am feeling in a day.
[Blaster] Is there a hidden meaning in your music?
Foreign Republic: There is definitely an over arching story that is to be told throughout the course of maybe four albums. It is very subtle at the moment but with the aid of music videos and other media I hope to portray it in a more obvious way. I don’t want to take away from the music aspect and just shove a story in peoples faces, but for the people that want to dig deep, I definitely have a fix for them.
[Blaster] Do you collaborate with other musicians? What is that process?
Foreign Republic: I do! One of my good friends Aidan Swift co-produces, mixes, and masters all of my music. We have already recorded a couple of songs with features from him that hopefully you guys will hear in the not too distant future.
[Blaster] Do you have a record label? Are you a member of any music organization?
Foreign Republic: I currently am self managed. I would love to maybe explore some labels and partners and see what could be done. But at the moment, it’s just me.
[Blaster] What skills have you learned that will help you in your music career?
Foreign Republic: Patience definitely because a lot of the times if I’m trying to get some thing done or I have an idea in my head and I can’t quite translate it it really frustrates me and it is hard for me to put it down and come back to it later. I like the immediate satisfaction but often times waiting results in a better product and it is some thing I am learning as I go.
[Blaster] What are you working on right now? Did you release something in the past?
Foreign Republic: I’m currently finishing up my second album I just released an album in July. New singles from the upcoming album will be out in the next couple of months.
[Blaster] What are the main topics for most of your songs? Do you think topics will change overtime?
Foreign Republic: Some of these songs are very outright and explicit about me and just me but a lot of the songs are more implicit in nature allowing people to come up with their own meetings and own interpretations. Of course I always write the song with a meeting that is specific to me but I like the music to be accessible and relatable to anyone
[Blaster] What do you feel is the best song you ever released and why?
Foreign Republic: Break Your Fall To me is my favorite song that I have currently released. It’s the perfect blend of sounds I was going for and the chorus is catchy and I like my vocal delivery especially considering it was such an early song. The last song on the upcoming album in 2022 called Parasite is my favorite song that I have ever written, though.
[Blaster] Who are you inspired by?
Foreign Republic: My girlfriend for one. I Constantly think about the possibility of me getting a lot of awareness and growth and being able to fiscally support us and my family. My parents and grandparents inspire me because I know they believe in me and that really is such a huge thing to me. Other people’s influence and opinions matter a great deal to me.
[Blaster] What would be your dream collaboration with any musician or producer?
Foreign Republic: I would love to collaborate with Dustin Bates of Starset or Grandson.
[Blaster] How do you balance your music with other obligations – school, hobby, job?
Foreign Republic: It definitely is difficult I work in a furniture department at a retail store pretty much full-time and I also help out around the house a lot because I live with my grandparents and I also see my girlfriend as much as I can. Somehow though I end up finding a way to manage it all.
[Blaster] At the end of the day, what do you hope people take away from your music?
Foreign Republic: I hope that people take away a positive experience with desire to come back and to hear more. I really want to connect with people and any fans that I have and will get mean the world to me.
[Blaster] Would you like to give any message to your fans?
Foreign Republic: Every single stream or download means so much to me. This is my dream. Performing live shows is something I would love to do and need a larger audience for. But I would love to do this. This is my dream job. And I think have what it takes to make it worth it to you guys to invest your time in this and in Foreign Republic
