1. Thank you very much for your time! Before we introduce your new release to our readers – what kind of drink would you recommend to zip on while they listen to your new music?
Wow, what a cool question and I’ll answer it this way…in the winter, I love a good scotch so maybe sipping on The Balvenie 12 year old would work…in the summer, definitely a gin and tonic using either Tanqueray or Hendricks gin…but the ultimate drink to enjoy while listening to Totten Bridge is a dirty vodka martini with olives made with either Belvedere or Kettle One vodka…and shaken not stirred! 😉
2. Please give us an update about – new single, new album, tour dates, new videos?!
“Perfect Day” was released on April 21 and it’s off to a great start…it is the 8th song that Totten Bridge has released and is stylistically different from the last 2 songs, “Brave New World” and “Control” in that it showcases more of the electronic elements that I like to employ subtlety…the next Totten Bridge single will be coming out in either late May or early June and it’s called “Coming Home To You“
3. We live in times of many conspiracy theories. Which, harmless, theory would you
wish were true? (For example Dinos living inside Earth or E.T. living in a home in
I would like to settle the UFO question once and for all
4. What fashion style or brand would best describe your music?
If Totten Bridge music was fashion, it would be something like Louis Vuitton chic meets gritty NYC punk rock with black being the main color theme.
5. Tell us more about your songs! Topics! Message!?
Totten Bridge songs are meant to be felt in a universal way in as much as they are heard…the main writing themes cover what most people can relate to most which are the big issues of life and love and all of their associated complexities…
6. Beside music, do you have any special talents?
No other special talents per se but I love to read and exercise and I think both inform my creativity.
7. Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?!
1). I place a greater emphasis on writing and producing than I do playing;
2) I listen to many different types of music but I can never directly relate my songs to anything I listen to and that’s why I try not to limit myself as to what I want to write, record and release;
3) I have been fortunate to work with many great musicians and record in many studios around the world;
4) I believe that all art that is created is good to someone out there in the world; and can find fans;
5) I think music is meant to be heard and appreciated because it is the one art form that forms immediate emotional bonds that last forever and I try to remember that every time I create a song.
8. How did you learn to sing/ to write/ to play??
I am basically a self taught musician who started hearing my own music in my head when I was about 15 or so…from there I bought a guitar and piano and rudimentarily figured out how to transpose the music from my head to an instrument and then craft that idea into a song…everything I write is completely by feel with very little thought about theory…if I like it then I go with it…it’s that simple!
9. A question you’d like to answer, but never been asked in an interview before?! + Answer pls.
Ok, here goes…if writing music was a sport, which one would it be to you? I would say that the art of creating a song is like baseball or soccer in that it is a slow, sometimes boring process that all of a sudden can have something remarkable happen that produces amazing and sometimes surprising results! 😉
