Jude David from Corridor Sixteen chats with TMI about their new single
What inspired you to pursue music?
I was inspired to pursue music because I found this to be the best way to express my feelings, emotions, and creativity in ways I never could in the past. How did you come up with the band name “Corridor Sixteen”? I spent a few days trying to come up with a band name that in one way or another symbolized the type of music I wanted to play and to conjure up deep emotions. But after not being successful in coming up with something, I ended up picking the first band name from a random band name generator!
How would you describe your musical style as a band?
I describe my band’s musical style to be a cross between alternative and punk rock, with elements and influences from various artists, such as The Beatles, Prince and other pop/punk bands.
What artists do you look up to right now?
One of the bands that I look up to the most right now is Blue October. I enjoy the messages contained in the lyrics of their most recent music which have actually helped me navigate through recent tough times in my life and in the current situation of this world.
Can you spill any details on upcoming releases?
The next song I will be releasing will have a dark theme of death and blood. Just kidding! Actually, it has an original storyline that I wrote and it’s less personal than previous songs I’ve released.
Were there any recording challenges during the making of these songs?
One of challenges I faced in making my new songs was having to travel to a producer in Texas and other locations,
despite the current pandemic.
What’s been your thought on the reaction of the song?
So far, I’ve gotten all positive comments from the listeners, especially from those in their late teens and early 20’s who seem to connect with the song on a much deeper level.
The music video is very powerful as well! How did you guys come up with the idea for the
For previous music videos, I just put together some ideas and made some drawings which were then assembled and animated for the video, along with some live footage.
Are there any other projects in the works you can tell us about?
I have a song called “1950’sSong” but I’d rather not give any details of it yet. I want my fans to be delightfully surprised
when they hear it.
Why do you think social media is so important for singers today?
Social Media has helped musicians promote their music and spread their message without the traditional record labels that artists and musicians in the past relied on.
How do you want your relationship to be with your fans?
I’m thankful to have fans who can relate to the message contained in my music and I want to continue to build and maintain a
strong connection with them for many years. What social media platform do you use most to stay connected to your fans? I use mostly Instagram and YouTube, and sometimes Facebook, to stay connected to my fans.
What’s an average day like for you guys?
I spend most of my time during the day trying to focus on writing new music, rehearsing and keeping up-to-date with what’s going on in the music world. When I’m not involved with music, I’m very much into physical training and maintaining
an active and healthy lifestyle.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years in your career and personal life?
In 5 years, I see myself continuing to spread the messages contained in my music to an even greater number of people all
over the world.
How has this whole music career experience been so far?
This whole music career has been such a positive experience to me in my life. I have the chance to be on stage, playing guitar and
singing my heart out.
Do you have any last things you want to tell your supporters?
I want to tell my supporters to just enjoy being young while they can, find their passion and work hard at it.
