My family is my biggest inspiration #musicmoney sits down with Shadow Gaiden
Where are you from?
I am from Utah in the United States. It's a county-ish state where I have lived my whole life. The mountains are beautiful and the people are (mostly) wonderful. As long as you stay off the roads
Describe your sound:
I love making something with a good beat to move to, but just strange enough to call my own. I use emulated analog synths primarily, because I love the classic synth sound from the 80s and 90s
Tell us about your new project:
I'm super proud of Wasted Wizard. I asked my girlfriend for inspiration for song/album names and we had a very hearty laugh with Wasted Wizard. Just the name wrought inspiration in me and it was a fun track to create.
Who inspires you?
My family is my biggest inspiration, followed by my musical inspirations: Type-O Negative, Crystal Castles/Alice Glass, The Prodigy, Carpenter Brutt, Deadmau5, Gojira, and so so so many more bands/musicians. Videogames and the internet also bring so much inspiration
Where do you see your career in 5 years?
I'm not sure where I will be in 5 years. I want to push my music to new limits and I hope to make more possibilities for my music. Music has saved my life multiple times and it would mean everything to me if my music could do that for someone else
Where can we check your music out?
You can check me out on the major streaming services (Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music), and on Twitter @TheShadowGaiden
Tell the people something they need to know:
If there's anything to know, I'm a survivor thanks to music. It makes me who I am and I don't know what I would do without it. I also want to thank you if you read the entire interview, and I hope you like my music. Love ya
