Aries Marquis Interview

Muzique Magazine Interviews Aries Marquis

Muzique Magazine. When did you start making music and taking it serious?
Aries Marquis. I started taking music seriously around 2007. I knew how to sing, but I didn't really start writing music or recording anything until between '07 and '08. My dad, who became my manager around the same time, introduced me to the music industry and told me to build my songwriting skills, which I did.

Muzique Magazine. Do you feel that the industry needs more artist like yourself? Why?
Aries Marquis. Yes, I feel that the industry needs more artists like myself, and I am not really talking about just vocals or anything like that, but I am talking creativity and originality. Artists need to be more passionate about their music, and write more timeless music, and create more original sounds than what is heard today. This is what I strive to do; be different, and sound different. This is why I write most of my music based on true events in my life, because it's my life, and no one can tell my story like I can. Too much music sounds the same, and too many artist look the same. This is killing true artistry.

Gracie Hays Bring A New Feel To A Fusing Of Genres With Here Latest EP 'Guidelines'

With the release of her EP Guidelines, Gracie Hays bring a new feel to a fusing of genres. Lush with a soulful vocal style, an acoustic back bone, and an alternative pop edge, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie pop anthems. Though the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds it all together much like a concept album would. Most importantly, the record never loses sight of the emotional platform great songs are built on.

The first single, “Mr. Bossman”, is an immediately addictive folk pop classic. Complete with driving percussion, a very straight forward lyrical approach, and a powerful chorus, the song seems to breathe and build as it plays on.

“This song is about realizing you're working too hard doing something your heart isn't necessarily in, and the decision about whether or not you should change that. It's easy to stay in a safe place where you're comfortable, and it's difficult to take a risk.
