Edgy and somewhat alternative singer-songwriter Jennings Couch first came to considerable attention thanks to his previous single “Serotonin” and is kicking off 2018 in similar style thanks to his new release “Stay Out.” With an EP in the works, which he’s remaining considerably tight lipped about, and dreams of playing MSG, Couch spoke to ThisIsTheLatest about social media, his USP and what it’d take for him to feel like he’s “made it.”

TITL: First of all, who exactly is Jennings Couch?

Jennings Couch: I’m an alternative singer-songwriter born in New York City in 1995. When I was 9 years old, I moved to London where I’ve been ever since. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been wanting to make my own music. I remember in one of my guitar lessons when I was 6 or 7 years old, I asked the teacher if he could stop teaching me other artist’s songs and to start teaching me how to make my own.

TITL: What would you say makes you different from all the bands and artists around today? What’s your unique selling point?

JC: I think what makes me stand out as an artist is the way I write lyrics. I’m not afraid to take a subject I enjoy like astronomy, physics or philosophy and turn it into a relatable song. I’m also not afraid to try out new sounds when I’m working in the studio. It’s important to have a consistent sound but, at the same time, a little experimentation here and there is what gives a song character.

TITL: Growing up, which bands and artists were you most influenced and inspired by? Have those influences changed much over the years and how big of an impact do you think they’ve had on the music you make?

JC: Growing up, I was into alternative rock bands like Green Day, Hoobastank and the like. In my early teens I was into heavy metal. I mean REALLY heavy, like Suicide Silence heavy. Then in my late teens I got really into folk music like Ben Howard. More recently I’ve been really enjoying Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons and Grandson. I think my you can find influences of all these different genres in my music. I simply make the music that I enjoy listening to.

TITL: You’ve just released your new single “Stay Out”. Is there a story behind it and what ultimately made you decide it’d be a good track to share?

JC: The inspiration for ‘Stay Out’ was all the stupid, immature arguments you have with your partner. It reminded me of how a kid gets angry at his parents and puts a sign on the bedroom door saying ‘Stay out of my room!’ I thought it could be cool to write a modern break up song represented through those sorts of childish tendencies. As my first release of 2018, I wanted to kick off with a strong, punchy and energetic track and this one ticked all those boxes!

TITL: Is there an EP or album in the works and if so, what can you tell me about it?

JC: There is an EP in the works and all I can really give away is that there are going to be some real anthems on it! I’m actually shooting the music video for one of the tracks in the next couple of weeks.

TITL: Do you have any tour/performance plans in place for the next few months?

JC: I’m busy applying for festivals and hoping to tour the UK or Europe on a support tour. Before that, I’ll be playing the Half Moon Putney on the 26th of February and I’m also booked to play Lechlade Festival in May!

TITL: If you could play any venue in the world, which would it be and why? What is it about that venue that means so much to you?

JC: If I could play any venue in the world, it’d have to be Madison Square Garden in New York City. I’ve only been there once in my life, and I was 6 years old and it was a Duran Duran concert. There’s something quite nostalgic about returning to your place of birth to play their biggest venue.

TITL: How do you feel about social media and do you think there are any downsides to the power it can and does have in terms of the impact it makes on an artists’ career and ability to reach an audience?

JC: Well… I find social media very hard to keep up with. In all honesty, I’d rather just enjoy my dinner rather than take a picture of it and share it with everyone ‘I think’ cares. I always find myself forgetting to post or forgetting to share something. In the end, I need to get on social media more as I know it will help expand my audience and get my music heard, but it just doesn’t come naturally to me. Social media is so saturated with people doing exactly what I am doing, so I think it’s important to be different and really portray yourself as an individual.

TITL: Finally then, what’s your ultimate career goal? At what point, and what would you have to achieve in order to say to yourself, ‘Yeah, I’ve made it’?

JC: When I can pay the bills!! In all seriousness, if I switch on the radio or walk into a shop one day and hear one of my songs – that will be the day that I say ‘I’ve made it’.

Inspired by artists such as Kenny Chesney and having opened for Thomas Rhett, Cole Bradley has always had a passion and affinity for country music, and now, thanks to releases such as his new single “Happy Hour”, he’s well on his way to being a real star of the genre in his own right. ThisIsTheLatest caught up with Cole to talk song-writing, dream shows, and his ambitions for the next six months and beyond.

site de rencontre 18 20 ans TITL: First of all, who exactly is Cole Bradley?

Cole Bradley: Great place to start! I am a country singer-songwriter from Calgary, Canada, who currently lives in Nashville, TN. I love to have a good time, live everyday like it’s my last and put out music that hopefully people can connect with. TITL: When did you first realise you wanted to make music a career?

CB: I’ve always loved performing and songwriting but the moment I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in country music was when I was twelve years old. It was when I heard my first Kenny Chesney record and I was mesmerized by the way Kenny was able to make people feel through his songs. From that moment on, I wanted to be like Kenny and create music that everyday people could relate to.

CB: Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, and Darius Rucker would have to be the top three country artists that inspire me. The reason being is that their songs tell the best stories. Their music makes people feel something!

follow site TITL: What impact do they have on the music you make?

CB: Obviously, Kenny’s beach influence has impacted me in my song writing but ultimately, these three artists make me want to write better songs and push myself to new heights. In my opinion, Brooks, Chesney, and Rucker set the bar when it comes to releasing new and interesting songs, so my hope is that one day I can be on their level. TITL: Where or how do you most often find inspiration for your songs?

CB: My best inspiration comes from real life experiences. I need to live my songs! If I can “live” and experience different things every day, that’s where I’ll find inspiration and that creates the best songs.

CB: The idea came from my first year of university in Canada. Every Thursday night my friends and I would huddle into my dorm room and we would play a game called “Power Hour” where each of us would do a shot of beer each minute for 60 minutes straight. We had a ton of fun to say the least! In the end, the song is all about just enjoy a few drinks with your best pals and getting into some fun afterwards! TITL: Are there any tour dates/performances coming up?

CB: You bet! We have some shows planned for CMA Fest in Nashville this weekend. After that we have some real fun shows planned in Western Canada over the course of the summer as well as a few US dates that haven’t been announced just yet.

steategi opzioni binarie iq option TITL: You’ve already opened shows for a number of country stars including Thomas Rhett, but if you could share a stage with three other bands or artists, living or dead, who would you pick and where would you play?

CB: Obviously, Kenny Chesney and Garth Brooks would have to be at the top of that list as they are my heroes! From the past, if I was a sixties kid I would want to hang with The Beatles – “Penny Lane” was one of the first songs I ever listened to and probably inspired my love for singing. Is there any band more legendary than them?

CB: Wow, great question! I think some of the best compliments I have received are from people who have been following my career from the very start. Just to hear those people say that “you get better every time I hear you” or  “you’ve grown as an artist” is such an affirmation that I’m on track. The ultimate compliment someone could give me is that my songs helped them in a tough time or that one of my songs made them think of a special memory. For me, if someone tells me that they relate to my music and connect with it – that’s the ultimate compliment in my books.

تسعير الخيارات الثنائية التي تستخدم فيها أرقام غامض TITL: Given that bands and artists today all but HAVE to be on social media, how do you feel about the power the likes of Twitter and other sites can and do have in terms of helping an artist grow their fan-base and keep themselves current? Do you think there’s such a thing as too much of a social media presence?

CB: Social media is a great platform for artists. It has never been easier to build a brand, release new music and build an audience. Social media engagement is huge in helping an artist grow their fan-base. If you can master the art of having great communication with your fans – I believe you will find success. It’s hard to say if there is such thing as “too much of a presence” but I believe if you have quality content and your personality shines through then I think you are doing the right thing.

TITL: Finally then, what does the rest of the year in store for you and where would you like to see yourself five years from now? What do you want to tick off your bucket list?

CB: For the rest of the year, my plan is to keep building my audience, touring in new markets and improving my craft. I think if I can keep improving on my live show, songwriting and in the studio as well as making new fans then I’ll be very happy. My main goal is to able to share my music with as many people as possible and if I can have a career in the next five years where I am still making a living playing music – then that’s a huge win in my books!
