Artist Interview: The Mietus Touch
What do you think makes you stand out from all the other aspiring and upcoming artists in your genre of music?
TMT: I suppose that I pull from a menagerie of influences. There’s definitely a common thread running through every song on the album, but at the same time, there are also a lot of very different artists one could cite as these songs sound like. I think in a lot of ways that the natural progression of music in that influences is going to be more and more homogenized. The creative soup we’re all drawing from is perpetually getting bigger and with more ingredients. But I really like to draw a bit from one thing and another bit from something completely different.
If you could collaborate with ANY artist/band… Who would you choose and why?
TMT: Beck. We have similar eclectic tastes and a style of songwriting that I think would be compatible and fun.
Out of all the songs you’ve released, what do you think is your best song and why?
TMT: “Digits” is the most radio-friendly song, but “You Got Me” is the most personal to me. I suppose it’s also of note that both of those songs were largely written and recorded over the course of a night.
Wow. Those were written the same night?
TMT: Oh no, two separate nights. Two long nights of creative flow occurred on the bookends of that relationship.
Between creating in the studio OR performing live on stage, which is your most enjoyable one and why?
TMT: Hard to choose, can I say both. Love the control of the studio, but I also love the interaction on the live stage too. As much as I do love the sometimes slow, methodical way about studio recording, I do think at its core music is meant to be a shared experience and nothing gets you there faster than playing on stage.
What would you consider the most successful or proudest moment in your music career, so far?
TMT: Tough call, I’ve gotten to experience things because of music that I never would have dreamed of. Performing for a sold-out crowd at Chicago’s Metro Theater was a highlight just because that place is so iconic as a Chicagoan. Touring in France and the fan interaction there was such a lovely experience. I also played a rooftop show on this beautiful summer night in Atlanta with one of the most enthusiastic crowds imaginable. The magic in the air that night was palatable.
What inspires you the most about the music industry these days?
TMT: We’ve never been better access to music. Anyone that says that music isn’t what it used to be tripe isn’t paying attention. The flip side of that though is there’s so much good stuff out there that it’s hard as a fan to find it and hard as an artist to find your fans. It’s wild how super niche stuff can either find its audience and connect thousands, even millions of people, and something that offers a very similar experience may not find anyone at all.
What kind of impact do you want to make with your music?
TMT: The best thing about any art is creating something personal that resonates with many people. When you create something that is hyper-personal to you but it connects with people who find it hyper-personal to them as well. The reminder that the shared human experience is more similar than we think. That core emotions and experiences and universal.
