Matt Moseley Interview By Scott McGlynn

Talent guy Matt Moseley has been featured in Sai music video “We Are Your Children” I caught up with him to find out more and future plans for the rising star… 

matt-s

Scott: When was the moment you first realised you wanted to be a singer / performer? 

Matt: I kind of just grew up around it all. I’ve been dancing since I could walk, and watched my sister grow up in the music industry, so it just made sense. Performing is one of the most thrilling experiences ever, the rush you get from being on stage is unlike any. 

 

SM: Tell us 3 facts about yourself that we don’t know?

MM: I love playing video games, I am a huge fan of boxing/kick boxing, and  acting is probably one of my favourite things to do! I love stepping into a character or someone else’s shoes to be someone different. 

 

SM: Tell me how was your experience with Sia on “We Are Your Children” video? 

MM: She was so very cool the whole time. You would think, as an outsider, that she’s not involved, and the label/management handles everything, but she was really involved in the whole thing, top to bottom. She helped us pick out clothes that fit each of our personalities & was comfortable for us. She was singing live when we were filming certain scenes, she just wanted to be involved, and that’s really cool to see coming from an established artist that way. 

 

SM: Tell us your highlight of your career so far? 

MM: Probably all the Lythgoe Family productions I’ve done. I’ve had the opportunity to perform along side huge celebrities like Ariana Grande, Sabrina Carpenter, Jordan Fisher, Olivia Holt, Ashlee Argota, the list goes on & on, and I got to perform next to these true performers, night after night for 3 months at a time, each year. Such a crazy experience. Runner up would be all the studio time I’ve been putting in. I love creating music. 

matt-2

SM: Whats next for you? Anything you really like to do? 

MM: Right now, I’m working on what my original music will sound like. Each artist has a period of time where they’re figuring out, not only what they like to create, but what makes sense, what’s marketable, so right now, we’re working on what that is for me. I’m also a big fan of dancing, you can catch me at one of the studios any night of the week, usually from 2-5 hours. 

 

SM: Being in the public eye we get so many rumours, anything you heard which is not true you like to clear up? 

MM: Nothing crazy yet. Unfortunately, when people have more time than anything else, they’re likely to spread rumours, or start with someone, and when they see someone they’re threatened by or jealous of, they’re quick to try to attack/affect that person.. luckily, nothing really bothers me HAHA. I do what I do, because I love it. 

 

SM: Will you be visiting the UK anytime soon?

MM: I’m hoping so! There are so many places I want to travel to. Keep supporting & I’ll be over there even sooner! 

 

SM: Your Fans love you on social media, Is there an exclusive you can give us for them on here? 

MM: Thank you guys so much for all the support, means the world to me. Stay tuned for new stuff coming soon.

Jon Klaasen Interview By Scott McGlynn

American Idol & X Factor USA star Jon Klaasen exclusive interview with myself,

We talked JLO, Bullying and the Perfect Date…

iqboerk7

 

Scott: Tell us a little about yourself Jon?

Jon: I am 18 years old, 19 in January.  I have one younger brother who has been accused of being my “twin” since we were little.  I was born and raised in Indiana and I’ve been singing since I could talk.  I’m doing this for the impact I can have on the lives of others who can relate to the music I write and because it’s what I love.

 

 

Scott: Tell us 3 facts about yourself that no one else knows? 

Jon:

-I LOVE sports.  Growing up in Indiana I played a lot of sports as a kid.  Basketball being the main one.

-I have a little birthmark in my hair on the back of my head.  I’ve never seen it but my hairstylist always comments on it!

-My family and I are big milk drinkers.  It’s not surprising if we go through 2 gallons a day.

 

 

 Scott: You appeared on US X-Factor and American Idol, How were these experiences for you?

Jon: They were great!  It’s an awesome opportunity to have and I really appreciate it.  My favourite part by far is hanging with the other extremely talented contestants.  You get the best jam sessions you’ll ever be a part of. I’m still really good friends with a few of them!

 

 

Scott: What are the audition processes like? 

Jon: They can be pretty nerve-wracking on both shows.  You see a lot of people crying or just looking down when they come back out.  Very few come back with a smile.  In the end, it’s more of an adrenaline rush.

 

 

Scott: You had amazing comments from Harry Connick Jr,Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez that must have been a huge confident boost, right? 

Jon: At first, yes, it can be!  Too many people let it get to their head though.  If you’re not humble in this business, you’ll be torn to shreds.  But yes, it’s pretty nice to hear those things from people as experienced and gifted as the judges.

 

 

Scott: You made some awesome music like “Coming Back,” “Persistence,” and now your new song “Irreplaceable”.  All of them had great feedback and your fans loved them.  How would you describe your music genre, or do you like to experience all types of music? 

Jon: I don’t really have a name for my genre yet.  It will probably be categorised under the pop genre.  Pop is such a large and vague description, I like to describe it as acoustic-driven-pop-rock-with-sub-bass!

 

 

Scott:The X-Factor in the UK has just started have you seen any episodes? If yes, who do you like so far?

Jon: I haven’t yet actually.  I have recently been extremely busy with several projects which you might find out more about in a little bit 😉

 

 

Scott: What advice would you give someone trying to break out as an artist or thinking about going on shows like X-Factor / American Idol?  

Jon: Don’t forget yourself as an artist.  Too many people try to be the next Justin Bieber or the next Taylor Swift.  The thing is, there is already a Justin Bieber and a Taylor Swift.  Be yourself, and create a brand for yourself that stands out.

 

 

Scott: Will we be seeing you on Tour any time soon? And any plans for the UK?

Jon: There are talks but I can’t make any promises yet.  If you follow me on all my social media as soon as I know about any shows you will too!

 

 

Scott: If you could perform with any artist in the world who would it be and why? 

Jon: It varies, but right now it would be twenty one pilots.  I recently got to go to their show and it was honestly the best concert I’ve ever experienced.  I would LOVE to be a part of that.

 

 

Scott: What are your plans for 2016 / 2017? 

Jon: Well, I will definitely have more songs coming out.  Music videos as well!  I’m also moving out to California!  I am in Cali a lot but currently live in Indiana, so the official move will be happening soon.

 

 

Scott:What would be your perfect date? 

Jon: Skydiving, then driving up to a gorgeous look out at night.  So, if you’re down to skydive… hit me up!

jon

 

Scott: I brought out my first book earlier this year called “OUT” its my true life story about getting bullied for who I was and how I overcame it. Did you ever suffer from bullying in school or in your life? 

Jon: I did get bullied at some points.  Mainly in middle school because I was a late bloomer and didn’t grow much until my junior year of high school.  Some of the athletes would pick on me because I wanted to grow up to be a “rockstar”.  I always had my family’s support and that helped a lot.  The main thing that helped me get through was my faith.  Whenever I felt alone I just remembered God’s love for me.  It sounds cliché, I know it does, but it made a big difference in my life.

Paul Manners Interview By Scott McGlynn

Paul Manners came to our screen in 2015 on Britain’s Got Talent, The success he has since the show has been a journey, from UK gigs, ITV shows and now his new signed record label…

medium_uMlPoyt2sDUZH4A8AMpvEF9zY_7p1nSeZRPbpcKud10

Scott: You was a big hit on last year’s BGT, how has life been since the show?

Paul: It has been amazing with so much to come. I am ever so grateful to learn that Peter Andre wrote an article on me in his New! Magazine column. I appreciate everyone remembering me and knowing that I have so much to give to others. I have since been onstage at Clacton’s first beach festival with 50,000 people attending, school visits, performed at dick de vigne’s nightclub in South-end (not far short of maximum capacity), sung at various weddings/anniversaries, DJ’d at nightclubs, played various celebrity charity football matches for wonderful causes who are in desperate need of support, performed on stage in Hyde Park at Winter Wonderland and appeared on red carpets.

Scott: How was the audition process?

Paul: I originally auditioned at the Excel, London before Christmas 2014 with my song ‘Inspirational’. It was great to receive the phone call asking for me to attend judge’s auditions. Things did get a bit awkward though when my audition date was changed, sent to Manchester and I was advised by the production team to do my livelier song ‘Hold You In My Arms’. I absolutely enjoyed entertaining during my main audition although I was put outside of my comfort zone; the massive speaker that made the buzzing sound behind the backdrop kept making me jump and the microphone which I had to use. It was also lovely to be recognised by Dec before walking onto the stage, he said to me “I’ve seen you somewhere before”. I can’t remember where I had met him before, may have been watching in the audience on a previous show or performing in central London on a night out. After receiving three yeses I was asked to return to the deliberation round with a phone call from Simon Cowell and David Walliams. The conversation was hilarious. After my audition aired I was notified by several fans that Stephen Mulhern had mentioned this phone call on ITV’s ‘This Morning’, to which I had called up the production team to not authorize the airing of the phone call as I was not told that it was being recorded at the time. My interview with Stephen Mulhern was also never aired on ITV 2, it was so funny to film; we ripped into each other with plenty of banter. It’s a shame it was never aired though and I would love to see myself presenting a show sometime. A few days later I was asked by the production team if I would be the semi-final reserve act for the live shows. I had to attend rehearsals at Thames Television HQ and sign a pre-record contract with syco/sony. It was a shame that it didn’t go through but I would like to thank everyone for their support. During every live show I kept getting hundreds of messages by people wishing I was in the finals. I would love to work up to a point where I would perform as a guest on the show sometime, without forgetting the words! Lol

Scott: Congratulations on the new record label deal, what can you tell us about it?

Paul: It’s with major independent label CO Records UK. I had a meeting at The Dorchester in Park Lane, London on Friday 1st July to discuss & sign the contract. The deal is for one single, 6 months.

Scott: Your EP “Hold You In My Arms” was a hit on Itunes, Will you be carrying on with that style of music?

Paul: Like my current EP, I love doing variety. I shall be exploring all styles with my own personal touch. I love it when others enjoy what I do and can relate to it. You’ll have to wait and see what’s instore for my next single.

Scott: Have you got any gigs coming up? If so where can we be seeing you?

Paul: Any events can be found on google or my website, paulmofficial.com. With my record contract, we will be building up to a gig at the O2 Arena, London in November sometime; which is what I’ve been told by the label.

Scott: You’ve met some great people over the last year who was you star struck by the most?

Paul: I’m just myself and always calm when I meet other great people, but after BGT I was asked to DJ/host a family birthday party to which Shona McGarty (Eastenders) was a guest as it was for her cousin. It took us ages to say hello to each other as I guess we were both star struck of one another but it turned out to be a great knees up. It is always lovely to meet great people who think of others and are down to earth.

e0e05919-e278-4b73-987f-ff891f70f4f6

Scott: We saw you on Judge Rinder earlier this year, how was that? Is everything OK with your father now?

Paul: Everything has always been ok with Dad. He has always been there for me. It was a great experience and a privilege to have the wonderful support from all the ITV Manchester studios production team. They had contacted me mentioning that they loved me on BGT and would I be interested to come on the show with a true story. I had then asked Dad if he would like to appear on television and he agreed. During filming when I saw a picture of mum, I broke down; thinking how I wish she was still here today.

Scott: Who’s your favourite artist at the moment?

Paul: I love the dance track which is currently No. 1 in the UK charts ‘This girl – Kungs vs cookin’ on 3 burners’, what a tune! I don’t have a favourite artist but love others who are down to earth, work hard with a smile and positive.

Scott: What can we expect from you in 2016?

Paul: Lots of hard work, entertainment and making a positive difference. Thank you all for being there.

Gabz Interview By Scott McGlynn

Gabz hit our TV screen’s from 2013 Britain’s Got Talent, Since then she’s done gig up and down the UK,

Worked with charity’s and now soon to release her EP “UP”…

87951c39a66a568ed9a06cdd33b1421d4dbb1fb6

 

Scott: You were on BGT back in 2013, How was that experience for you?

Gabz: It was an amazing experience, I had never done anything like that before so it was very scary but so fun! Everyone was really lovely and it definitely helped build my confidence.

 

 

Scott: How was life been since BGT 3 years ago? Gabz: It’s been crazy! I’ve been performing all around the country and have been writing and recording loads of new music which is really exciting!

 

Scott:You have a huge following who loves you like snoop dog calling you “John Legend” style you have, How did you react? 

Gabz: That was so awesome, I was really surprised and excited! I had no idea Snoop Dogg had even seen my audition or knew who I was so it was amazing that he compared me to someone so talented!

 

 

Scott: You been called the mini Alicia Keys by the press, Is this a goal you have? To take over worldwide with your amazing talent?

Gabz: It’s obviously a huge compliment as she’s incredible and I’d love to be as big as her although I’d say I’m not really like anyone as I want to have my own individual style and sound! Taking over the world is definitely part of the dream! haha! 

 

 

Scott: How was it growing up in the public eye? From age 13?

Gabz: It’s been a bit weird as people at school in the lower years get a bit excited and when I go out I get noticed a lot but it’s been really fun and I love meeting the people who like my music and are supporting me!

 

 

Scott: Your new EP “UP” is out 2nd September, Can you tell us about it?

Gabz: Yeah, the songs on the EP are all really different! I like a few different styles so they’re all very ‘pop’ but there’s rap, ballads and dance all featured so hopefully there’s something for everyone!

 

13423664_622211211265579_1183753506_n

 

Scott: Your a big writer up to 70 songs you’ve written! Will we be seeing album very soon?

Gabz: Hopefully! I’ve written and recorded a lot of music but I’m still at school which stops me from doing a lot although my school are very supportive and accommodating. I’m releasing the EP while I’m on summer break and I’m not quite sure what is next, I’ll definitely be releasing more soon it just all depends on fitting it around school until I finish next year.

 

 

Scott: I know you a big supporter of charities and do gigs for them, Any charity that is close to you?

Gabz: Yeah, I’ve been supporting a couple of charities recently – ‘Wings Of Hope’ who help underprivileged children in India and Malawi and ‘Jackie’s Drop In’ a centre for adults with learning difficulties based in Letchworth. I try to help when I can!

 

 

Scott: Where can we be seeing you in 2016/2017? 

Gabz: If you check out the events page on my website www.gabzofficial.com/events it has my upcoming gigs, so check it out and see if I’m performing near you! 

 

 

Scott: If you could choose anyone to perform with who would it be and why? 

Gabz: I love this question! I’d probably say Professor Green as he’s one of my favourite rappers and I saw him perform in Blackpool when I supported him last year at the Blackpool iFest and I loved his vibe on stage as it looked really fun! 

 

 

Scott: Any gig dates coming up you can share with us?

Gabz: I am performing still but I’m taking a little break at the moment to promote my single and EP but I’ll be online and doing radio interviews.

Tommy Marz Interview By Scott McGlynn

Tommy Marz is an American band, That has stormed the music industry! After having success with a version of George Michael’s ‘Faith’ that spawned a video that went on to receive many views on YouTube and getting placements on Networks such as NBC and MTV! I caught up with Tommy for a Q&A enjoy…

 


Scott: You’ve been highly successful and working with some amazing people, Whats been your highlight so far?Tommy: Yeah, we have a great team here. Whitesmith Entertainment has taken really good care of us. So far, charting on the iTunes Top 30 Rock Albums Chart has been one of the biggest thrills.  Hearing from people on Twitter saying how much they like the record/songs is an unbelievable feeling.

Scott: You are more on the rock side of music, I love “Only Human” what category in music would you say you’re in? 
Tommy: Thank you!  Our newest album ‘Bringing Alpha’ is definitely rock and that’s the sound of the band.  But when I am doing some solo stuff like the song you mentioned ‘Only Human’, I feel like I take on a more Pop/Singer-songwriter approach.


Scott: You’re getting big in America, Have you ever been over in the UK? If not, have you got any plans to be coming over here soon? 
Tommy: We’ve never been to the UK but are totally looking forward to coming over there.  We have met many nice people on our social media accounts from the UK.


Scott: When growing up who was your idol / idols and why?
Tommy: So many to name but off the top of my head, probably the most impactful artists were Duran Duran, The Police and of course The Beatles.. and later groups like STP, Silverchair and Alice in Chains served as some of our biggest influences.


Scott: What’s your next track / album going to called?
Tommy: The next song we are going to release off of ‘Bringing Alpha’ is a song called ‘One Big Rush’.  It’s a total adrenaline song!  A new video for it is about to come out very soon as well.
Scott: How long did it take you to write and record your first album “Rival” 
Tommy:’Rival’ is very special to me because it was the first solo album I ever recorded but it took a long time.  The whole process was over a year whereas ‘Bringing Alpha’ took about six weeks start to finish.


Scott: What’s your thoughts on worldwide music shows like “The Voice” & “The X Factor”?
Tommy: I think they are a great platform to launch artists worldwide.  Without shows like them we would be missing out on some great talent we may have missed otherwise.  And honestly they are just so entertaining to watch.

 

Scott: What advice can you give artists that are just starting out and want to break the music industry?  Tommy: Keep writing and keep playing.  There can be so many obstacles in your way and all you can do is keep trying to better your craft, remain positive and don’t forget about the passion that made you start in the first place.  That last part I still tell myself everyday.  I cannot imagine a place where I’m not picking up my guitar and writing songs.

Sam Stanley Interview with Scott McGlynn

Sam Stanley has become the first English rugby union player to come out last year, I caught up with Sam to see how life’s been after coming out, His career and much more…

 


Scott: How did you get involved in rugby? Was it something you knew you always wanted to do?

Sam: I had an uncle who played for New Zealand. I think all of his brothers, including my dad were going to try and get their kids into rugby in some way. I was 4 when I first got involved and haven’t looked back.

 

Scott: What advice would give someone that is wanting to get into rugby? 

Sam: I’ve had many memories over the years of playing and have met some wonderful people along the way. It is a great way to meet new people and the environment is very friendly. As with most things you’ll never know unless you try but trust me the memories that can be made last a life time, on and off the field.

 

Scott: What is your strict fitness routine preparing for a game? 

Sam: Throughout a match week there’d around 3 training session with possibly two intense session and the other to go through a captains run making sure everyone knows the plan for the opposition being faced. There’s a lot of weights and also recovery sessions so you’re not too tired come game day.

 

Scott: What is your favourite exercise thing to do? And why?

Sam: My favourite exercise in the gym is bench press as it works a number of muscles and is functional for rugby.

 

Scott: You come out last year, How was it? What was everyone’s reaction like?  

Sam: That’s correct. It’s been amazing for my state of mind and I’ve never been happier since having done so. The reaction from team mates, coaches and the public for that matter has been overwhelmingly supportive. I could never have imagined I’d be able to be myself and play rugby. It’s really is great!!

 

Scott: Did you find coming out made any change to you career?

Sam: I think it is really too soon to say. I’ve had a few serious injuries in the past that have halted my progression to really push on with my rugby and people know about them no matter how I’m playing. I think for coaches they don’t like to take risks on previously injured player especially with the run I’ve had. Last year wasn’t the best season for me as I just wasn’t being selected to play but I don’t think it has anything to do with me being gay. I hope!

 

Scott: Being a open gay guy myself, I brought out my first book earlier this year called “OUT” its about my true life story being gay, getting bullied in school and work places growing up. Did you ever experience anything like this?

Sam: Wow, Scott. Congratulations. I really kept myself to myself as a youngster growing up and although I had feelings different to my friends I made sure I put them aside and pretended to be something I’m not. Luckily I guess being a rugby player was seen as a macho thing to do so when you’re young people respect that. I was always nice to people and wouldn’t stand for people bullying others.

 

Scott: What will be your advice to anyone getting bullied right now? 

Sam: Tell someone with authority and please don’t keep anything like that to yourself. There are many people that will help you do something about it so find someone you trust will fight your corner because it should never be tolerated at any age.

 

Scott: What can we be expecting from you in 2016? 

Sam: I can’t believe we are half way through 2016 already. The first half for me wasn’t great and I found myself in a pretty toxic environment, which didn’t help my development as a rugby player at all. I’ll be getting my head down once the season kicks off and trying to work my way back up the ladder. I attended my first London Pride at the weekend and it’s great to attend events like this without having to look over my shoulder anymore. I’ve done a few talks here and there sharing my story to LGBT groups within companies, which has been a great experience. Hopefully in some way I’ve been able to help people.

Christopher Haul Interview With Scott McGlynn

Fellow Welshy Christopher Haul is a worldwide success performing to all audiences. From BoyBands to sole career he talk’s about his idols, experiences and touring.

 

CbFqbv3W0AAdHuR

 

Scott: You been in a few boybands, How was that experience?

 

Chris: So growing up in the 90’s was very inspiring because I was totally obsessed with the sort of bands that were huge at that time.  Backstreet boys, N’Sync, Boy Zone, Spice Girls, O’Town etc etc..  That made me think as a child ‘I want to do that’!  Being part of one was such good fun and it was an experience I will never forget.  Obviously it is so much different and can be a little lonely at times but if I am honest I am having more fun by myself.

 

Scott: Your a successful solo artist now touring the world, Is there much difference from being in a band and a solo artist? 

Chris: Yes absolutely, it can be sooo stressful being in a band because not only did we live together, have days off together, work, travel, gig, record it’s a 24hour thing.  When you are a in a band you are in a committed relationship.  Almost like a marriage, but with that you have to make sure that you are ready to go and your band mates.  If one person is stressed nervous or not focused then it really does have a knock on effect.  Where as being a soloist you only need to worry about what you are doing it is so much easier but harder when it comes to performing as you have to sing each song all the way through.  It’s an eye opener!

 

Scott: You been travelling a lot recently where’s been the best place you visited any why? 

Chris: Ohhh tricky question… More recently, I would say Russia (Moscow) was pretty cool.  Mainly because it was nothing like I expected it to be.  I thought it was going to be dull, scary, an unwelcoming place but all the horror stories you read on the news it was nothing like that. Great architecture, great food, the people were OK and I really enjoyed it.  
The other place I loved was Sri Lanka but that is mainly because of the tropical weather, beautiful beaches, food and amazing scenery! I felt the same about Phucket in Thailand similarly.

 

Scott: Have you got any summer gigs lines up, If so where can we see you?

Chris: Yes, I am performing at a lot of the Pride festivals in the UK my next ones are in particular order are Oxford, London North Wales, Liverpool, Bournemouth and Carlisle.

Christopher Haul Leicester Pride 2015 Photographs

 

Scott: Who’s been you idol growing up? 

Chris: I have always been fascinated by Michael Jackson, I always thought of him as a fictional character because his ability to perform, dance, sing is out of this world.  But I always loved the Spice Girls too.  I actually thought I was one at one point (didn’t we all) haha.

 

Scott: Can you remember the first single bought?

Chris: I always used to steal my older brother music, so they used to buy it so I didn’t have to.  My older brother Gavin used to buy almost every single on CD or Cassette each week.  I  think his love for music really rubbed off on me.  I think my first single that was bought for me was Whitney Houston ‘I will always love you’.  It’ my favorite song today!

 

Scott: How did you start off in the music industry?

Chris: I started off by moving to London and auditioning for bands.  I had that dream from a young age.  I had an interesting roller coaster of a ride in the band but I do think I learnt a lot about the industry.

 

Scott: What’s been your highlight so far?

Chris: My highlight so far has been performing at my own original music to audiences all over the world.  I haven’t released anything yet because I am taking my time but I feel like the best is yet to come!

 

Scott: If you could choose 3 people to duet with who would they be?

Chris: Bruno Mars, Adele (Imagine), Will-I-Am and I would love to duet with Rihanna that’s 4.

Jerrod Interview with Scott McGlynn

Jerrod a muti talent American artist, Singing, Piano, Drums the lot! The friendliest people i interviewed! We chatting about growing up, music, Orlando!

 

f1032b24-b30f-4e79-8957-d6356b1f3e56

 

Scott: When was the moment you thought to yourself music is what i want to

do? 

Jerrod: I always loved music. I’ve been playing drums since I was 2 years

old and it was passion of mine. I wanted to be a professional

drummer one day, but when I got older singing seemed a lot more

appealing to other people so I went with that. I was always shy to

sing and play drums but I love making people happy with music and

performing so I started doing covers of songs and put them on a cd

and started giving them to my friends.

 

Scott: Your talented guy you learnt muti things like drums, guitar, bass guitar and

piano. What do you like playing most and why? 

Jerrod: Drums is my favorite out of them all, but I really love the piano as well.

 

Scott: You done some awesome covers, What your number 1 and why?

Jerrod: Wow…umm my favorite probably would have to be a change is gonna

come by sam cooke. I love sam cooke and was raised on his music so when I did

his cover I thought it would be just another one on youtube but the views spiked

over night and kept growing and that ended up being my most viewed video. My

new favorite would probably be lay me down by sam cooke. I played the piano

and sang it live one day and I loved it.

 

Scott: You new track “Diamond” is amazing! I loved it hearing it on soundcloud, Tell me about it…

Jerrod: Diamond was a song my manager wrote for me and when I heard it I

immediately fell in love with it. I did it a couple of times and the first few times, my

manager wanted more out of me. I did again late one night and it just clicked. I

love it

 

Scott: Have you got any plans coming to the UK in 2016? 

Jerrod: I’ve always wanted to go, and I couldn’t think of a better way to do it then

to visit and share my gifts and talents with the UK! If they’ll have me of course.

 

Scott: Shows such as “The Voice” & “The X Factor” creates some great talent, Have

you ever thought about doing any of these shows?

Jerrod: Absolutely. I think about it almost everyday HA I was just talking to one of

my friends the other day and they were telling me I should go and try it. I would

love to work with the amazing artist on the show to grow and collaborate with

them. It would be a great experience

 

Scott: For your US fans, Will you be performing anywhere this year we can share

with them?

Jerrod: I plan to but I’ll keep that a secret and surprise you guys one day !

 

Scott: I brought out my first book earlier this year called “OUT” worldwide. Its about

my true life story being gay, getting bullied in school and work places growing up.

Did you ever experience anything like this?

 

Jerrod: Fortunately I never experienced that life and I always hated to see it. Even

growing up in a christian based school, I still saw some horrible things go on, but

I was the type of person to get along with everyone. I wouldn’t have cliques and

not talk to everyone. I was cool with everyone and hoped they were cool with me.

 

Scott: All our hearts go out to Orlando worldwide! What’s your thought on this?

Jerrod: Its really a tragedy. I did a song called “Change the World” and it caters to

situations like this. You should take a listen to it and share it because the world

needs a change, and with my music I hope to give life, peace, positvity, with

every lyric I write and sing. I want people to love each other no matter what their

political constituancy is or their race or gender. We are all people and we can all

make that change. Michael Jackson said it best, “if you want to make the world, a

better place, take a look at yourself, and make that change!” and I firmly believe

that.

 

Scott: It was amazing speaking with you Jerrod, Last thing what is your top 3 items

you can not live without?

Jerrod: Thank you so much for having me! My top 3 things I cant live without first

and foremost is God. He is the one that makes everything possible for me. 2. My

family. I will always need them and will be there to support them and last but not

least my girlfriend. Shes been here for me since we were in the 4 th grade. Most of

the songs I do and write are for her and I want everyone to have someone like

her, so yes she is definitely something AND someone I cant live without.
