Matterz Interview: Kurtis Lee @TheLuckyGuys

16-year old Kurtis Lee is already considered as a teen phenomenon. We still keep trying to copy his dance routines but unfortunately, we can't #MoveLikeKurtis. So, we sat and talked with this amazing and multi-talented young guy and definitely we can say that the future is yours Kurtis. 

1)        Hi Kurtis. How have you been?
I've been good. How have you been?

2)        Tell us your story so far and describe a typical day of you.
My story... well I started dancing when I was 4 yrs old doing street dance. As I grew older I got into singing too.

A typical day for me... well that depends on the day. Monday to Friday I have college where I study dance and then most evenings I'm either doing dance classes or teaching other kids dance as well. At the weekend I dance and sing. That’s it, performing full time.

3)        You recently released your single with The Lucky Guys ‘Happy Life’. What’s the story behind the track?
The song is an upbeat, feel-good song. It's meant to lift your spirits and make you feel good.

4)        How was the recording and writing process with The Lucky Guys?
The song was written by the Lucky Guys and I was approached about doing the vocals to go on the track. We recorded the vocals at Konk Studios in North London where many famous artists have recorded like Adele. It was a great day and everyone was really pleased with what we had created at the end of the session.

5)        What’s ‘Happy Life’ for you?
Happy life to me is being with friends or family and having a good time. It can be anything from a holiday overseas to just chilling at the local park with my friends.

6)        We are in love with the video and its positive vibe. Do you have to share with us some funny behind-the-scenes stories?
The video was recorded at the beginning of Summer and all the people in the video were my friends from my performing arts school, I Got Soul. We had a great day and for lunch the record company supplied pizzas for everyone... I've never seen so much pizza before. There must have been 30 or 40 pizzas delivered and trust me... it all went... hahaha

7)        You are only 16 and you are a great dancer! We keep trying to #MoveLikeKurtis but it’s not so easy. Give us some advice to copy the dancing routines.
Just keep trying, never give up and feel the music your vibing to. Everybody has a dance or two inside them... it's just about having the confidence to let it out.

8)        Who are your favourite artists and bands? How do you incorporate their work in your sound and vocals?
I like a wide range of singers from current singers like Aitch and Stormy to older singers like Michael Jackson and Ne-yo. I also like a wide range of music...one minute I can being playing something old like James Brown or Nina Simone and then I'll be straight into something like Nirvana or Red Hot Chilli Peppers. I take all their different sounds and styles and try to incorporate them into my singing.

9)        What’s next?  Any plans for a school tour or an EP release?
You never know... I would love to get out there and start performing live for all you guys.

10)    Do you have a special message for your fans?
First of all I want to thank everyone that has streamed the song so far or watched the video on Youtube. It means a lot to me that people are taking the time out to show their support. Keep strong and keep listening xx

11)    Kurtis thank you very much for the interview.
No problem... thank you xx

The result meant that this contemporary rendition of Happy Life took on a brand-new form of its own, breathing new life into what was already a source of boundless optimism for many music fans.’’

The incredible trio worked in the reawakening of a feel-good summer pop song and teased the senses of the audience with the release of the first two remixes by Until Dawn in August reaching number 8 in the Commercial Pop Music Week Chartsand we are still at the beginning of a successful run.

Matterz Interview: Tenaj

Tenaj recently released 'Be As I am Metamorphosis' and made us put our dancing shoes and go straight to the dancefloor. We had a very interesting conversation with her and we are pretty sure that you will love her strong, and full of emotions, personality.

Hi Tenaj. How have you been?
I'm great thanks and you? 

Tell us your story so far. When did you start thinking of a career in music? 
I started very early. My uncle was a professional photographer and he started to take pictures of me since I'm 6 months old. From modelling to dancing and in my early teenage years I started to focus on singing.

You recently released your new single ‘Be As I Am Metamorphosis’. What is the story behind this song? How was the recording and writing process?
It was a moment in my life where everyone around me tries to tell me what I can and cannot do or be. I fell in love with the title Be As I Am. The recording and writing process was great very smooth and fun.

Producer Austin Leeds who has worked with Avicii, Tiesto is behind the slick production of the track. Talk to us about this collaboration. 
He’s an amazing producer. I let him do his thing and he always comes up with some hot music.

‘Be As I Am Metamorphosis’ is a new version of the same track that you released almost a year ago! What are the differences and your need to re-release the track? 
I just wanted a different version. I love remixes and I always create an original version and different remixes. The difference is that the original is more of future house track and the remix has more of a bass house touch.

What do you find inspiring when you are writing your songs? 
Anything can inspire me. I can get inspired by watching Tv or walking down the street. I would say my life and any moments can inspire me.

We are in love with your video! It is very uplifting! What’s the concept and do you have some funny behind-the-scenes stories to share with us? 
Thank you I'm happy to hear that. The concept was to create a video behind the scenes. Me travelling. I was shooting in Milano and Switzerland. I thought it was really funny to see my dog inside my suitcase, therefore I had to incorporate it.

Who are your favourite artists? How do you incorporate their work in your sound? 
I listen to all kind of music. I really like Madonna, Halsey, Nervo, Don Diablo, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren and many others. When you listen to all your favourite artists, it naturally becomes part of you. The inspiration shows at a later point in one of my songs without consciously trying to do so.

Any plans for a tour or a new single? 
Yes, definitely planning on it. The dates will be announced soon and yes more songs/ videos will be coming soon. I'm planning on releasing every 2 month a song/video.

Do you have a special message for your fans? 
Dreams come true. Never give up.

Tenaj thank you very much for the interview.  
Thank you guys for having me.

Matterz Interview: Julia Kahn

Julia Kahn is a promising new artist from Indianapolis described as Lana Del Rey meets Dua Lipa. Her debut single 'Fly Away' has already teased our senses and we sat and talked with this lovely girl  who has some amazing news to share with you.

1. Hi Julia how have you been?  

Hi, thanks for having me! I’ve been great.

2. You come from Indianapolis. Tell us your story so far 

I’m from Indianapolis, Indiana! I’ve been singing and writing since I was really young, and grew up singing blues and soul music. I went to LA and recorded some of this style when I was young and then sang in a blues band for a few years throughout school. But after all that, I really started to gravitate towards writing and producing my own music and finding my true sound now, which is a blend of some soulful indie-pop and lo-fi electronic music, which I love. This past year I moved to Nashville, and have been working on writing and recording an upcoming project that I’m really excited about. 

3. You recently released your debut single. Why do you want to fly away?

This song was written more retrospectively. It was inspired by this big moment of clarity that I had that really shifted everything for me. It was the realization that everything I had been through, all of the pain or people who tried to limit me or hold me back, is really what led me to find myself and my truth, and led me to become who I needed to become. So this song was symbolic of me just flying away from all of those painful spaces and times, and flying to new dimensions with a new truer version of myself. 

Listen Here

4. On this track you collaborated with Bryan Todd, how was the recording and writing process?

It was so awesome being able to Work with Bryan. This song was one of those special songs that seemed to write itself and just kinda flowed right out of me when I sat down in front of my window to write it and came together super quick, like 15-20 minutes. I did the lyrics + music + a lot of the production for this song, and it’s full of just my raw emotion, transformation and so many lessons learned. When I wrote this, something kind of special happened..the most beautiful synchronicity happened with a black & blue butterfly flying straight up to my window in the middle of a horrible storm outside, right after I wrote these lyrics. So It was a magical little universe moment that actually brought me to tears a little bit when I wrote it. So that was really special to me, and the recording process with Bryan was just so special and it flowed and came together so easily in there. It was super fun working on it with Bryan and learning from him and having him bringing it to life even more in so many awesome ways in the studio. 

5. What do you find inspiring when you are writing your songs? 

I find myself most inspired and coming up with ideas while I’m outside surrounded by nature, or while I’m driving in the car on the road a lot. Journeying to new places and seeing the world and connecting to it and other souls have always been so inspiring to me. Any powerful experiences I have, either with others or on my own, always inspire me the most when I’m writing my music as well.

6. You are at the beginning of an amazing career. Recently the well-acclaimed director Samuel Womer filmed the incredible music video of fly away. Share with us your experience and some funny behind the scenes stories.

It was such an awesome experience working with Sam and his team!! They really embraced my concepts and ideas for the video and really brought them to life in such a powerful and creative way. They helped create this little world inside of this abandoned building for the shoot, and even though it was pretty freezing, everyone was so positive and worked so hard. It was really cool to work through telling this story in a very symbolic and abstract kind of way. I feel like one of the funnier moments was when I was trying to drive that awesome old car, and was trying to look cool you know, but had trouble driving it smoothly and Sam was on the back on a skateboard-like Back to the Future-style trying to get shots but I kept jerking the car around. And one of the shots, I’m looking really seriously into the distance while sitting on this chair, but really I was staring at this graffiti of a weed leaf on the wall across from me while I was singing this serious line so that was pretty funny too.

7. You are described as the new Lana del Rey and dua lipa. How are you feeling about it?

Well, I feel incredibly honoured to be put in any kind of category with those amazing artists. I always feel though that every artist is their own unique light and has their own individual messages and visions they want to share with the world, which is what is so special about all of these amazing artists out right now. I feel lucky to just be out here creating music and being inspired by so many amazing female artists like them.

8. Who are your favourite artists and bands? How do you incorporate their work in your sound? 

I’ve always felt I had such an eclectic group of artists who have really influenced my writing heavily — across SO many different genres. People find it odd sometimes that I have so many different musical influences, but they all have impacted me in different ways and played a part. From my roots in soul music with Marvin Gaye, MJ, and Stevie Wonder, who definitely influence the soulfulness and overall spirit in my voice. To other legends like Stevie Nicks, Janis, Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill who has influenced me more aesthetically and with their incredible writing styles. I’ve also been influenced and inspired by recent artists like Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, and Lana del Rey for sure who have definitely influenced how I write and kind of that urban side that’s laced through my sound.

9. What’s next? Any plans for a tour or an EP release? 

I am planning to release an EP release towards the end of this year or beginning of next year, and am looking to hit some festival stages in the coming year :)

10. Do you have a special message for your fans? 

Just thank you so much to anyone who has taken the time to listen, watch the video, and connects with this song. It truly is such a raw and honest piece of my heart, so seeing you all listen and resonate with it really powerful and means the world. So THANK YOU :)

11. Thank you so much for the interview.

Thank you so much for having me!

Matterz Interview: Vina Rose

Italians do it better! We had an amazing conversation with this lovely singer/songwriter Vina Rose. Her debut single 'Breathe Again' is your summer anthem and the new acoustic version of this track is ready to tease your senses. Get ready for a very interesting interview!

1)    Hi Vina. How have you been?

 Hi, I am quite good thanks, I've been working hard and enjoying the journey at the same time.

 2)    I assume that you are super busy with the promo campaign of your recent single ‘Breathe Again’. Could you describe a typical day of you?

 I am very busy indeed. In a typical day after a quick breakfast, I start with some admin (checking emails, answering to phone calls, contacting people) and I listen to some music, or work on new ideas, do some research and plan my meetings followed by some stretching and then I go for my workout in the afternoon, and when I am not out for photo shootings or gigs, I come back home, having a nice dinner and finishing the day watching a movie or documentary on Netflix :)

4)    You come from Italy and have collaborated with well-established artists and significant TV shows in your country. What’s the challenges of an international career and how do you deal with them?

        When I moved to London the main challenge was that I needed to start from scratch again, and some people back in Italy didn't understand my choice of leaving the country where I had already established myself to move onto a place where no one ever heard about me. Eventually, I learned how to deal with that and I pushed myself to get through that uncomfortable zone, becoming more focused on building my name as an artist.

       The language barrier then was another challenge, especially for some Italian people that are not very fluent with the English language, and they asked me quite a few times to translate posts on social media for them not to feel excluded from me (although that didn’t happen too often luckily :)) that reminded me to take care of my existing fan base in Italy as well as new followers that hopefully will come during the journey.
       Those big professional experiences taught me a lot, but at the same time, they were limiting my own creativity  in a way on a personal level, that's why I felt like I needed to make a change and find the voice to express myself even more, and that's why I moved over here.

 Listen to the original mix on Spotify | Lyric Video

5)    You recently released your new single ‘Breathe Again’. What is the story behind the song? How was the recording process?

Breathe Again is a song of resilience describing the need to overcome fears and insecurities and to transform those into the inner strength and self-confidence. Basically, when I wrote the song, I wasn’t in a satisfactory phase in my life, I was feeling stuck and frustrated, and I eventually found the strength and determination to move onto better days, and to be able to "Breathe Again ".

The recording process was spread over a few months, cause I recorded the vocals in two different studios at separate times, due to the fact that we changed  the arrangement, so I needed to feel more secure that I can communicate the lyrics with the audience, but all the process was extremely exciting and I was very glad of the outcome.

6)    What do you find inspiring when you are writing your songs?

I usually find inspiration from everyday life views, situations, feelings eg family dynamics, betrayal, challenging circumstances, defiance, etc. Most of the time I start from a personal experience that happened to me or to my immediate circle of loved ones.

7)    I am amazed at your new music video.  Could you talk for the filming process and share with us some behind-the-scenes funny stories?

The music video was the result of months of preparation where I worked with a team of creative people to transform my vision into reality. The actual filming process took me around 4,5 hours, which if you think about, it is quite impressive, considering all the prep, clothing changes, and singing and dancing performance involved.

For that day I bought so much food for everybody and in the end I asked the camera crew and dancers to take it home (I remembered they said: "oh wow we can see you're Italian, we never saw so much food on set" :)).

8)    A few days ago, Band Vault TV posted an acoustic version of ‘Breathe Again’. I loved it. Simple and uplifting at the same time. How did you feel when you were rehearsing and then when you were performing the new version of the song?

Thank you, I appreciate you like it. About the acoustic version, I felt great when I was rehearsing it, also because when I wrote “Breathe Again”, I had a different vibe and a slower tempo than the actual one, and also I’ve had already the opportunity to perform it live in acoustic on a couple of gigs, so that was quite a natural process to me.

9)    Who are your favourite artists? How do you incorporate their work in your sound and performance?

Michael Jackson, Sia, Dido, Joni Mitchell, Adele, Lianne La Havas, Incognito, Lauryn Hill, Emeli Sande, but the list could go on and on….

I love to work with interesting and unpredictable melodies, sparse instrumentations and ambient sounds and pulsating hypnotic rhythms with a modern sound, but most of all for me is really important to write deep, emotive, meaningful and powerful lyrics, and to create a sort of cinematic experience, that is what defines a great song and what makes a connection with the audience. Most of my favourite artists I mentioned above inspired me with their strong and explosive personality, and I would like to associate myself to that kind of artistry because it is similar to my own personality.

10)Any plans to go on tour in the UK this year? What about an album release?

I'm thinking to go on tour at some point anytime soon, cause I really love to perform live, but right now I'm starting to work on my next release, which is most likely going to be an EP.

11)Do you have a special message for your fans?

Don’t try to please everybody, smile often, be kind, love at your fullest and be your own original.

12)Vina thank you very much for the interview.

Thank you very much for having me, it was a pleasure talking to you.

Miracle Thomas - 'Expect A Miracle II'
[Photo Credit: Tamala Tisdale]

With high vocal tones like Chante' Moore and deep vocal tones like Toni Braxton, throwing in a little sexiness from Janet Jackson and a timeless soul sound from Deniece Williams, we have Miracle Thomas. Her source of musical inspiration comes from powerhouse legends Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, The Emotions, to Dolly Parton, Babyface, BeBe and CeCe Winans to opera singers Denyce Graces and Kiri Te Kanwa and the late Whitney Houston to name but a few!

Miracle is a vocalist, songwriter and producer. Her journey began at the age of three when she began singing with "The Gems of Truth Gospel Choir" in her Lynchburg, Virginia, hometown. In her early teens she re-located to Washington, District of Columbia and began to write songs and perform in talent shows. She's written over 800 songs that include a wide variety of genres from Rhythm and Blues, Pop, Country and Alternative, etc and as she says "No, you cannot put me in a box!".

Skipping a few years ahead, February 9th 2018, Thomas released a Single "You Say You Apologise" to create buzz and soon after the DJ's wanted more songs. "Expect A Miracle" was released on June 1st, 2018, Miracle Thomas' debut E.P showcasing her vocal range and writing abilities, while the single was getting a warm welcome overseas. Things we're looking bright! 

On June 17th, 2018, Miracle's single "You Take My Breath Away" was #1 on the Amazon UK Sales and her debut EP - "Expect A Miracle" was #1 on the UK Soul Chart. On June 25th, 2018, #1 on the UK Soul Chart with her E.P, and also a #1 R&B Chart Hit. Miracle Thomas is highly regarded with deejay's overseas. With all this success, Miracle Thomas won the Ground Breakin' People's Choice Award in the UK for Best Soul E.P, March, 7th 2019! She was nominated in 3 categories: Best Soul E.P, Best Newcomer and Best Soul Female Artist. 

"Expect A Miracle II" was #1 on the UK Soul Chart just recently, and Miracle Thomas independently recently released her sophomore E.P on April 21st, 2019.

Zhavia Ward - 'Die Young (Roddy Rich Cover)'

Recently, Zhavia Ward posted "Die Young (Roddy Rich Cover)" on her YouTube Channel on April 12th, 2019, re-produced by Cody Tarpley. At 2: 04 the trap inspired beat weighs down into a deep groove where you can really feel Zhavia's voice. Singing "Why the legends always gotta die quick", quite appropriately. When the extremely young Zhavia turned up on our TV screens in 2018 (YouTube for the rest of the World) little did we know that she would soon become a super star, inking a deal with Columbia Records and releasing three popular singles "Candlelight", "100 Ways", and "Deep Down" all scoring millions of views on YouTube and millions of streams on Spotify. The success somewhat almost feels over night. Even though Zhavia Ward didn't win The Four: Battle for Stardom, which premiered on Fox on January 4th, 2018, she came third but this didn't stop her from winning a deal with a major label.

After getting her big break from appearing on The Four: Battle for Stardom, her music is addictive, a great fusion of trap, hip hop, R&B and of course pop with beautifully deep vocals scarily similar to Amy Winehouse and original and unique compelling lyrics. Ward is a very young, fresh, smart, storyteller and is certainly one to hear and you could even go as far saying that she is one step ahead of her game. 

Zhavia Ward can also be heard on the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Deadpool 2 with her featured song "Welcome to the Party". It features Lil' Pump, French Montana, and Diplo.
