We caught up with Thanro J 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 write what I want and when I want

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

I have a room for it at home, so I don't need to go anywhere

In addition, I can produce by myself

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

I love recording and producing, but performing and promotion are essential

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 always plan my releases, so I can promote it

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

You can expect a new album

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


I especially love "They won't be in my mind"

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

Unluckily, I haven't collaborated with anyone, but I'd love it!

What inspires your creative process?

Every moment in life can inspire you for making art

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

My top three albums?

I think I would say "Me Against the World" by 2Pac, "Doce Lunas" by ZPU, and "Mejor Que El Silencio" by Nach.

Why? Because they inspired me for making music.

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?

As I said before, I work alone

So I would say... Myself! hahaha

Where can we find you on social media?

You can find me everywhere as "Thanro J"
