Q&A / Sam Cross
What inspires you the most?
Watching other people making their dreams come true. Makes me feel like I can do it too :))
Aside from lofi/chill beats, what is your favorite music genre?
I think it's called Psychedelic Rock? A friend of mine showed me this band called Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and they've been my favorites for a couple years now. Their sound is full of energy, aggressive, distorted but very melodic. I always liked everything that revolves around EDM too.
In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?
When I have to work on many projects I easily feel overwhelmed and get frustrated so I end up doing nothing. Now in those moments, I list everything that I have to do and choose one of them to start. Even if it's the least important thing I just have to start somewhere. Then I get into the right workflow and finish what I started.
What do you wish you could tell yourself five years ago
That I should stick to the music thing. In 2017 I stopped doing music for a couple years because I was feeling very insecure about it. It would be cool to know where I would be if I didn't leave it aside but I'm happy that I eventually decided to do what I really wanted.
