We caught up with Heat Ledger 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?

I can put out music whenever I want...

However I want...

And the way I want!

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

Well, I’m a producer that also puts out music as an artist so...

If you were looking over my shoulder you’d be witnessing me creating some heat on my MacBook Pro...

My studio monitors, my midi controller, synth and various random little instruments that I come across and add to my station.

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

I love recording and production.

Making music is everything and a great way for me to escape the so-called reality and create what I love!

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

Well, my next release comes out next month on the 23rd November...

Which I technically haven’t told anyone about yet, except a few in my circle!

But it’s a Tech house track that I think the people who listen to it will appreciate it!

As a tweet though, I’m not sure...

I just hope people love it, listen to it, and pass it on.

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

I like to plan everything out!

Once I finish a track or at least name it and have the basics down...

I’ll even get started on the cover art and maybe a little teaser video for the track, which I also do myself!

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

Well like I said I’ll have a new single out mid-November.

And also some hip hop tracks I’ve produced for a few artists.

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

No videos out or planned for my House music...

But I’ve produced a few Hip hop tracks for a couple of artists that I’m hoping will drop soon!

And then follow up with music videos for them in the New year.

Are there any collaborations past or future that you are excited about, producers, artists, instrumentalists or songwriters?

Yeah! Like I mentioned...

I have I few hiphop projects I’ve produced and that I’m also working on at the moment for my boy and up-and-coming artist “AYCE”

Featuring some pretty notable Mcees that I’m excited for!

I'm also working on a couple collabs with a couple other electronic artists and friends of mine

• my Homie and super talented producer, engineer and DJ “D4V3R” of the Canadian DNB Duo "Bent Leaf"

And also my boy, and talented DJ & producer out of Wyoming “Spillz“...

So yeah! I’m definitely excited for those projects as well!

What inspires your creative process?

A lot of different things can inspire me to create...

Everything, from the ones I love, to nature, to listening to other artists...

Listening to all music in all genres!

I could be having a sh** day and that will still get me creating!

Because music makes me happy!

And who wants to stay having a sh** day?

So I get creating to get out of that sh** mindset...

And the more I create, the more motivation I feel, if that makes any sense?

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

To be honest, I couldn’t just choose three!

The way I look at it is...

My life has a whole soundtrack for all the years and different life experiences I’ve lived and gone through!

So if I were to name them all it would take way too long so we’ll save that for another time! lol!

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?

Well technically, I’m my own team

And do it all myself as much as I can...

But, if I were to shout anyone out, it would be my Wifey for always believing in me and my music...

I love you V!
