Congratulations on the release of “My Thing,” and welcome to BuzzMusic, Anthony Hughes! With such a strong debut single, we found that we have learned a lot about you as an individual and artist. Could you please tell us a bit about yourself as an artist and how “My Thing,” reflects that?
Thank you so much, As an artist, I hope that people can see and hear an individuality. I don't think I've ever tried to be like someone else although I have musical inspirations of course. I wanted a first single that was light and people could relate to, especially in these tough times. I'm hoping to warm my audience up for when I release more complex sounds with deeper energy to them.
What was the creative process like when crafting the lyrics for “My Thing?”
The lyrics changed many times, to be honest. They came from personal experiences in my own life and I just wanted to be honest with what I was singing about.
The music video is full of energy and really drives the single home! Did your vision come out exactly how you imagined it? What was it like working on your first music video?
My vision for the video was totally what I had in mind. I worked with Chris Jeffers who was the videographer for the shoot and everything that I imagined beforehand came to life. I wanted to show life in London and everyone I used in the video was just perfect. I've got some exciting ideas for a couple of tracks coming soon and hopefully, you'll see a more complex side to me.
What would you like your listeners to take away from the music you release?
If people take anything away from my music and my voice, I hope that they can relate to me and I hope they hear and feel something that they haven't alot of the time before.
What has been keeping you inspired throughout 2020?
2020 has been a tough year. Sounds corny but my inspiration this year is my determination to get my voice out there on the scene even when the world seems to be against us, it's especially hard for artists right now and what inspires me is to be able to look back and say, I released my music in one of the hardest times professionally and never lost any passion or hunger for what I do.
