Hi Clancy and welcome to BuzzMusic. How does your artist name define you as an artist?
Yo BuzzMusic!, thank you very much for having me. Using my artist's name as my own name reinforces my devotion to my art. There aren’t two worlds I’m living in. Rather, I am my music, my entire life is devoted to my craft.
What was it like touring in the UK writing songs and how has this shaped your career in LA?
Being able to experience a foreign music scene at the beginning stages of my career was incredible. I learned so much in a year. Industry standards, proper studio grind, and differing international genres. The work, the songwriting, I did was fast-paced and intense to the point I discovered writing I didn’t know I could; emotions I didn’t know I could lyrically emote. It all shaped my perspective heavily. The way I appreciate music, how hard I work, and my genre all shaped to where I can come back to LA with the confidence I found in London and continue the grind.
We love your new single! What was the inspiration behind, “Subconscious Suicide”? The tone suggests some deeper meaning.
Thank you thank you! Subconscious Suicide basically plays ode to driving yourself insane by questioning what you thought you knew. The song was written after just moving to LA, before London, and being hit with the reality of just how hard this industry is. I was seeing an artist, who I also envied, he saw my naivety and ate the confidence I had to feed his own ego. I thought I could make it until he made me a question and rethink to the point I lost control of who I even was as an artist. That shits boring, typical insecure men, F that completely.
What is your vision for your new debut album? Any central themes?
She’s A Poet is the main theme to this year debuting. My songs are lyrically deep and interpretive, but musically sickening and hard. I write everything myself, from my experiences/emotions, but the songs are situational. My job as a writer, as a Poet, is to convey the message not write the story. My songs are for who needs them whether that’s to scream crying or begging for sex. Man, its just up to the people.
What can we expect from Clancy Coulter in 2020?
Catch my band and I screaming about hypothetical suicide, bad bitches and pain wrapped in love all around LA. Singles will be dropped, groupies will be stolen, just a whole lotta bada$$ sh*t, if I’m even allowed to say that. Thanks again BuzzMusic.
