We caught up with Dutch to talk about his music. At Indiy we champion musicians.

Let's get to it...

What do you enjoy most about being an independent musician?

Not having rules to follow about the content of what I speak about.

If we were to peek over your shoulder, what does your studio look like? What gear do you typically use?

I used to have a lot but unfortunate circumstances have me using a USB mic and Fruity 12.

Do you enjoy recording and production, or do you like performing live and promotion?

I enjoy both but when I’m on stage...

I’ve found it’s the only way I get that pure release!

How would you want people to describe your latest project in a tweet?


Do you plan your music releases, or do you just finish a song and release it?

I plan some...others just come to me at whim!

What can we expect from you within the next 6 months? Any releases planned? Future gigs?

I’m dropping an album in the next few days!

And I’m buying a guitar soon!

Are you planning any videos for your music? Are there any videos we need to know about!?

I have a few music videos out, under the name “Lil Dutchii”. You can find them on YouTube!

I shall be working on more before long as well.

Are there any collaborations, past or future, that you are excited about?

I haven’t had many good collabs...

But the ones with me and my little brother are solid!

What inspires your creative process?

Motorcycles...a strong will to get my message heard...

And the loss of my ex fiancé.

What are your top three favorite albums of all time and why those albums?

Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
This album showcases an attractive combination of rock and hip hop.

Colter Wall - Imaginary Appalachia
I love how he blends the sound of his voice and the guitar.

And my newest album yet to be released because I’ve become an entirely different human, since a bad motorcycle crash that left me dead and in the ICU!

I’m so grateful to be here and able to continue chasing what I love!

Who makes up your existing creative team?
i.e. photographers, video directors, social media managers, paid media specialists, stylists, hair, and makeup…Name someone who you think deserves a special shout-out?

I don’t particularly have a team, its been me going strong and alone mostly.

But my little brother, OSOSKII, would deserve one if anyone should.

Where can we find you on social media?
