Hey Tynan! Welcome to BuzzMusic! When did you decide to take music more seriously?
I decided to take music more seriously after I began making beats and writing songs with friends. With the support they gave me, I became encouraged to begin my music career.
What do you hope your listeners take away from your music, specifically “Act Up”?
After listening to “Act Up” I hope my listeners can connect to the meaning. “Act Up” is a story about an ex of mine who was quite aggressive and quick to anger and this song captures that and hopefully my listeners can relate. In general, I hope anyone who listens to my music can relate to the meanings but also enjoy the vibe they get.
What was your writing process like for this song?
When I first heard the beat the name “Act Up” came to me straight away. I spent some time reflecting on my past and the story about my ex came up in my head. After the idea was planted, I wrote it like a story where everything is good in the relationship at the beginning and then in the second verse is where everything turned bad.
Who are some of your musical influences? How do they inspire your sound?
My musical influences include Travis Scott, Mac Miller, G-Eazy, and Asap Rocky to name a few. By listening to these influencer, I become aware of things I would of never thought of such as flows, pop culture references, and different rhyming techniques.
If you could perform anywhere in the world, where would you choose? Why?
If I could perform anywhere in the world I would still pick LA due to the HipHop scene and population. To be able to perform in one of the biggest HipHop influenced city would be my dream.
What’s next for you Tynan Smyth?
Following “Act Up” I am working on new songs and looking to include features with upcoming artists as well as add some new and different elements into my music to stand out.
