What about the Funk Apostles, what future plans do you have?
For a young musician it’s important to want to be consistent, day in and day out. Wanting to pursue your goal and your passion, whether money comes or not. People often think that being a musician automatically means living as a rock star. But it’s really not. I tell young people to be ready to go towards some tough time, trying to find your passion and keep discovering the love to play your instrument no matter no rains and no sunshine.
I just look for playing more music with people with whom I can feel good also offstage having a conversation. It is not really only the music, we are a band of brothers offstage, and this makes the music onstage cooler. You don’t need a similar background, the Funk Apostles came from different places, and played in different types of gig.
It’s the reality of our life. YouTube has been great for me personally. However streaming is giving to artists almost nothing. You have to figure out how to navigate in this new kind of musical industry.
I like Louis Cole and Knower’s stuff! We played together in Family dinner volume 2 of Snarky Puppy. I love the music they put together, it’s very catchy, they make awesome videos and songs about crazy topics, and the arrangements and the production are amazing.
