I think the cool thing about growing up in Los Angeles is being exposed to all the different cultures. You have a piece of almost everywhere on earth in LA. Growing up in Korea Town and West Los Angeles really gave me a certain appreciation for humanity in general which was part of the fuel for my continuous musical discovery. Looking back now I think I had a different kind of upbringing. My father was into looking for Aliens and using certain meditation techniques to communicate with them and my grand mother was a communist who lived for helping the needy. I went to lots of demonstrations for workers and anti-war protest growing up. Walking miles with screaming crowds happened quite frequently as a young boy. An interesting balance of inspiration that helps me never get bored of music! I never seem to get bored of music! I am always finding ways to express that unsaid emotion inside of me. I guess that’s why I enjoy teaching children music outside of pounding the pavement with That Noise. Even through the years I spent touring with my previous Interscope act I always was teaching on the off months from traveling. It feels good to stay connected to the reasons you love creating, which is very easy around interested youth. Knowing how to play several instruments and the in and outs of production is key to the process and sustainability of my creativity. With computers these days creativity is endless! You get an idea and you can manifest it very quickly, it’s amazing. Producing other artist has also been another source of inspiration and fulfillment. I feel very lucky to be a musical artist during this time and be in band that has a tireless work ethic and great attitude. Cheers!
