OCEAN MEETS 808POPSTAR
This week, we chatted with 20 year old educator from Minneapolis, 808popstar. We touched on world issues, his passion for theatre and how that translates and shapes the type of music he creates.
Acting being his number one love, 808popstar opens up about his passion for performing and shares his most recent role with us, Mr Cladwell from the musical, Urinetown. Although he couldn’t name his dream role, he named American Idiot as the dream production he’d want to star in.
Learning how to sing through acting, his musical focus is on sounds that make people move. He specifies that he looks for tales in his production that he can make his own. He also has plans to uniquely incorporate theatre into his performances, staging his songs instead of music videos. As for his process, he usually tries to write and record as soon as possible.
We also asked him about artificial intelligence, the current state of the world and possible sponsorships.
