What 1st drew you to music?

That’s hard to answer because it was like I was born with music in me. I knew from a very young age that music would be a big part of my life and I performed from being young. At that age it was more about singing and the feeling I got from that and then it developed into writing. I’ve always just had such a strong connection to music that it’s like it’s in my DNA. It’s been my friend when I’ve not had any, it’s always been there for me when I need it for any reason, it’s my first love.

Tell us a little bit about yourself. Your (music) background?

I was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland. I started writing songs at aged 13 and started recording at 16/17 but I didn’t release my first single til 2017, as I spent years learning and perfecting my craft, so it’s been 7 years of releasing but it’s been 20 years since I started writing songs in my bedroom.

I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world attending various writing camps all over the globe and I was selected to take part in the inaugural year of Stargate’s music mentorship in LA in 2021, been mentored by some of the best songwriters in the industry.

I’d say that’s not bad for a guy who dropped out of school at 16 (well a few days before my 17th birthday.)

Do you write your own music, or do you collaborate?

I write all my own songs but I do collaborate on the production with my producer Chris Stagg and I have collaborated on some of my tracks but when it comes to my artist material, I do prefer to write alone as I like to be able to tell my story the way I want.

Even if it’s a collaboration, I’m always involved in the writing and haven’t put out any work that I haven’t written on.

Do you have a preferred genre?

I’m always going to be a pop music fan as that’s what I grew up on but I love to write in all different genres. I’ve done some country, some rnb, rock, pop, dance… I just like to write.

Your most recent release is called " Web of Lies" Can you tell us about the inspiration behind your song and what it means to you personally?

Web of Lies is a song that I wrote last year after a pretty bad break up, which sadly is the story of my dating past.

The song tracks the relationship from at the start how the person will lure you into a false sense of security and then you end up in a tangled mess of lies that they have created until you finally decide that they have had too many one last chances. The song pushes that the universe will take the trash out and karma will come knocking for them which is what I live my life by.

How does this single differ from your previous releases in terms of style and lyrical content?

My songwriting is always pretty direct so you can tell the story of that relationship from the song as while I don’t seek revenge after a breakup, I will write it into a song haha.

The song is a bit darker in sound to what I have released before and I love how it feels like you are almost being haunted by the backing vocals and adlibs that are coming at you from all different angles. I think it suits the song to be a bit more edgy and harder as it was actually written as a piano ballad and was a lot more vulnerable sounding but when I got together with my producer Chris Stagg, we just went for it and I love what we came out with.

After a little 6 month hiatus, I think it’s the perfect way to reintroduce myself to my audience and sets up what I have to come for the rest of the year music wise experimenting with different sounds and styles while still keeping it pop.

You have built an impressive discography over the past few years. What is the best song you ever released and why?

That’s like asking me to choose my favourite child, haha. They are all special to me in different ways but for me a really deeply personal song was my last single Fix This Love.

The song was about someone close to me that was struggling with addiction and it was a song that just flowed out of me in 10 minutes or so and it was a song that I never knew if I’d ever release as it was so personal but I was so proud of the lyrics, the melody, the story and I wanted to put it out there because addiction is such a misunderstood disease and it breaks not just the addict but the ones who love them too.

I felt it was an important message to share and I’ve always been that kind of artist who speaks the uncomfortable to help others.

Do you create music for yourself or for fans?

Honestly, it’s for me. Writing for me is therapeutic and I have to do it, it’s part of me and I have to like what I’m putting out in the world as it’s my name behind it.

When I put something out, I am proud of it and it’s the cherry on the cake when it resonates with my fans too. I think my fans have similar tastes to me so they usually respond well to my releases.

What song do fans seem to favor?

The song I get the most feedback on still is Things He Handed Down which I released this time last year. Obviously I won’t share people’s stories that they have shared with me in confidence but so many men, of all different sexualities, reached out to me and told me about their difficult father, son relationships and I think it’s more common than we think.

The idea of generational trauma and learned behaviour has always fascinated me and that was another song that was written in 10 minutes and is really special. It goes through my own broken relationship with my dad and I put it out on Fathers Day for people who can be triggered by those kind of days because not all of us have a good dad to celebrate and I wanted people to feel less alone.

It’s again brutally honest but that’s me, being vulnerable to allows others to be.

Do you, or would you like to, perform live?

Yeah, I’ve done loads of gigs and would love to get back out there. It all about finding the right environment for me and to find a way to connect with my audience.

What song, any song, do you think would be fun to perform live?

I can’t wait to perform my song “You’ll Hurt More” live because it’s a heart break anthem and will be fun to get the crowd involved. I have another new song coming which I won’t name yet that I also can’t wait to do live as it’s a chance for people to dance between all the emotional turmoil songs.

Are there any specific musical influences that have shaped your sound and style?

I draw inspiration from all different genres and that what I love pop music. You can draw in a little bit of anything and it’s all about the song.

Sometimes it’s a bit of country in the lyrics with the storytelling, or some heavy drums and guitars bringing out the rockier side or a good beat to bring out the dance side.

You can play and experiment which I love and I always like to try something new with each release.

Which aspect of being an artist brings you the most satisfaction?

For me it’s the connection to the audience. When I receive a message from someone saying that a song has touched them or helped them in some way, that’s why I do it. I want to give other people what I get from music.

I always connected to music on such an emotional level and it was my first best friend in times when I felt so alone, it has never let me down and the fact that my music can be that for someone else means the world to me.

Can you share a defining moment in your career that has shaped your perspective as an artist?

I’d probably say it we when I released my first single Don’t Look Back in 2017 and it went into the iTunes Charts at number 9, I was so surprised and excited but it validated to me that I have an audience who were ready to hear what I had to offer and it gave me the confidence to keep going.

How do you feel about the relationship between technology and music? Has it impacted your creative process?

I mean it’s always good to have new and exciting tools to help with creative process but I do find things like AI voice cloning and AI writing quite disturbing.

I don’t think you can beat the real thing but using the tools in other ways, I’m all for, as long as it’s not taking away from the integrity of musicianship.

It will be interesting to see where we go from here but I think that with all things, authenticity and real will always stick around longer and an audience craves that connection that you can’t get from a computer. There’s nothing like a live band, a live singer and a real connection that creates a moment.

What is your favorite/best outlet to connect with your followers Instagram, Spotify, FB, Twitter, iTunes? How would you want them to follow?

The platform I am the most active on is Instagram (@luchi.music) as I document a lot on my stories so that’s the best way to be in touch with me and see all the aspects of my personality. I always love to hear form my fans so I always try respond to all my DMs even if it might take me a few days if I’m busy but do reach out.

Are you currently working on any projects we should look out for?

I have a lot of new music coming your way this year so look out, it’s very exciting as it’s some of the best stuff I’ve written. There’s also a few things I can’t talk about as they are still in discussion but if you follow me on instagram, you’ll see what’s coming when it’s time.

Is there something you would like to say that I didn't cover?

Just thanks for having me today and I look forward to connecting with anyone that enjoys my music after reading the interview, my dms are open so come chat.
