18 year old singer from Toronto Skye Rider Chats With TMI About His Passion For Music

Hey Skye, So excited to be chatting with you! What inspired you to pursue a career in music?

Growing up in a country called Belarus, my music teacher had a great influence on me by steering me towards the musical path. Started off with a small band called Lucky Q, and through that I could see the thrill and excitement that this journey presents. So naturally, that helped me realize that this is a path that I like being on. Also listening to artists like Ed Sheehan, made me realize the gravity that music has so that definitely helped. 

Did you have a break out song that started things for you?

In a sense yes. The song ‘Someone You Loved’ my Lewis Capaldi and all of Ed Sheeran’s ‘plus’ album kinda started this journey for me. When I decided to release the first ever song the pain , I was going through a phase in my life and I needed a way to productively release my emotions, so I made a song and out of impulse I released it. So I guess thats how this all started. 

What type of music are you leaning towards for your music career?

As of right now, I like the Acoustic vibes. I love the melody the piano has to offer, so I like to think of myself as a singer song writer. But, I would love to start making more pop music. But I want to make sure that I have ballads in my discography. 

What do you want your relationship to be like with your supporters?

Music to me is like passion. It connects to me in a very deep level. There are many aspects of music, The one where we write, all the endless hours of digging through your emotions to craft the lyrics. For every artist we need to have a fan. And with them too you need to spend endless hours, crafting the relationships because having music without people to listen to is like having piano without anyone playing. So I hope to have a very good relationship. I am very cheery person so I hope that never goes away. 

What’s up next for you?

With my first two singles out I am now more eager then ever to find my true place in this industry. So I am making an album compelling of songs that I have been writing for the past two years. I am also working on collaboration with my close friends and there is a lot of music that will be coming by next year. 

What is the best thing about your career in music?

Music is more than just a form of art. It is a way of finding one’s self. When I was younger, every performance, every show we sang in, it was never about the show that I enjoyed the most, I am a performer always been always will be, but I like that fifteen seconds of the rush from when I leave the back stage to when I am walking on to the stage. That anticipation build up , that slow raise in music, thats the best feeling ever.

What is the biggest struggle you’ve faced as an artist?

Being an artist is hard especially when you are a one man team, in a sense you have to make the music, write the music and do everything yourself. Its hard to find people who are willing to take a chance on you. But that just made me realize that I have to do the work myself. Not everything is handed to me. That way the destination will feel better. 

Any last things you want to tell your supporters?

If you read this far I love you lots. I cant wait to be putting out more music and that means the world to me. Hopefully, I can one day have enough music and team to start performing until then, enjoy all the music I am gonna put out. 

Thank you for taking the time to do this interview with us.
