We caught up with Anthony Church to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.
Let's get to it...
Really the freedom to control my own narrative and journey.
I feel I'll always want to have that ability to oversee all the aspects of my career moving forward as it evolves and changes in the years to come.
It's been a huge upside to not be tied down by any outside source.
Nothing more than my laptop, headphones and MIDI keyboard.
I really always try and utilize a small amount of gear just to keep everything simple and concise.
After all it's more about the end result and the songs you make rather than what equipment you own.
I'll combine the two and say production and promotion...
I don't live perform but I can record artists and it's never been as exciting as making beats and crafting out songs has been for me.
Then for the promotion side I've learned to fall in love with self promotion and coming up with different social media posts and different outlets to push the music to people and grow my following.
The past 4 years especially was a learning curve in that regard but it's gotten a whole lot easier.
My latest project was my Instrumental EP "Social Setting" so I think just "chill" would be how I'd describe it at least.
I think it's designed to be more of a carefree listen even if it's just the background music for someones daily activities.
It also fits the summer season quite well so that's why I decided to drop it in June.
This was actually the first full year I've gotten to plan out most of the release calendar for myself and it's worked out great.
I definitely aim to continue that with all of my self releases moving forward and it helps to stay on top of everything you have planned for your tracks.
In August I'm dropping another single that I'm excited for with a North Carolina artist named The Artist 336 so that's up next.
Then I have another instrumental EP planned for later this year as well as some more singles I'm working on and more collab projects with different artists.
So ya a lot of cool material is still on the way!
I actually wanna lock in with a couple videographers to help on some promo content for a few projects and maybe also do a handful of lyric videos for a track or two when the time comes.
I haven't had the chance to do any full fledged music videos yet per say...
But I'm always open to that if the timing, team and energy is right for it!
I'm just excited and honoured to get to work with anyone who shares the same drive and passion for music.
At the end of the day the ability to continue to do that and elevate it over the course of many years will continue to make me happy and wanting to keep giving back more and more!
Just living life really!
There's nothing in particular other than channeling different emotions into the music...
And I always try and just let it go where it's gonna go without overthinking it!
I don't think I'll ever have this list set since there's so many great ones out there but I'll give you my 3 favourites from the last year...
Nas' "Kings Disease II" has still been in my rotation and the other two albums as well so I'm excited for his next move with Hit-Boy producing part 3 again.
One of my favourite rappers Stalley did a collab album with a great producer named Apollo Brown called "Blacklight" and it's got everything you'd want in a Hip-Hop record on all sides so that's still getting a ton of plays.
Then my favorite album of the year so far is by a California artist named Bellez and it's called "Scot-Free".
I was very surprised by how good it was for an artist I hadn't heard of before but I'm looking forward to seeing what he does to follow up on it.
So far it's still just myself...
I can envision having a team one day of at least a few people but it would have to be in the right situation that still aligns with my goals and aspirations!
Until then I'm a one man show!
