FYIG recently had the chance to chat with music artist Devin Kennedy about his new single Feel the Same!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hey! I’m from Los Angeles, born and raised. I grew up in a musical family, I love coffee and I have a cat named Jimi Hendrix.
You’re a self-taught musician that taught yourself how to play guitar, bass, drums, and piano. How difficult was it to learn all those different instruments all on your own?
Very hard. But I think it’s important to take everything one step at a time. I started on drums, without drums I would’ve had a harder time learning guitar. Without guitar, I would’ve had a hard time learning bass.
What did you learn from your time at Berklee College of Music that has aided you in your career?
A million things. One of the biggest takeaways from my time at Berklee was recognizing quality music regardless of genre. So many of us are closed off about what we listen to, but it truly takes a unique perspective to be able to listen to any kind of music and analyze the work that went into creating it.
How would you describe your musical style?
Pop music with R&B & EDM undertones.
You released your first EP called Love Language earlier this year. What can audiences expect from it if they haven’t heard it before?
They can expect catchy, introspective pop songs.
You just released a new single called Feel The Same. Tell us a little bit about that song.
Feel the Same is about having someone with you through the good times. It’s my opinion that success carries less meaning if you have no one to share it with.
Do you have plans for a full-length album in the near future?
Stay tuned on the full length. Early next year there will be a lot more music.
How did it feel to be named Best New Emerging Artist by Hollywood Music and Media?
It’s humbling and encouraging. I’m excited to perform at the award show this month.
What can audiences expect from one of your live shows?
Coming up in rock bands, me and my live guys put on an exciting show. The goal is to entertain in every moment. To create memories for everyone at the show.
What advice would you have for aspiring musicians?
Never stop working. Never stop collaborating.
What’s a day in your life like outside the recording studio?
I love spending time with my family and friends. I love re-watching The Office and 24, the two best shows ever created.
