Jukebox Time recently got a chance to interview artist T. Ledger in regard to his upcoming album ‘Mist’. We got insights into his music, his source of inspiration and much more!
Q. First of all it is great to have you on Just Time and congratulations on your upcoming new album! We’re excited to delve into it shortly, but first, we’d love to learn more about you and your musical journey.
I went to a very musical school and played piano from 4 and guitar from 5. When I started learning composing in year 6 I was a natural. I learn from others well and have learned mastering and mixing techniques along the way. I don’t see the point of performing live for the sake of it, I justly do believe in making your dream song each time. Did a few rap verses as a teenager (13) but nothing serious vocally really into my early twenties. I started making beats on Fl Studio when I was 16 and have the same amount of followers then as I do now even though I’ve lost them forever.
Q. The ‘Mist’ EP is wonderful. Kindly share the process that you followed while you were working on the album.
Well, it is now an album and a lot of skill and hard work by all involved was put into it. We were all dealing with mental health at the time and was an escape. Shout out to Shaun Allen (Saber 1), Samuel Lockton, James David Wood (Rallyeon), James Bannister, DJ Aye (Adel Osmanovic) and I guess Me (Trevellyn Arthur Head aka T. Ledger) for all giving it their all.
Q. If you get a chance to collaborate with one artist who would that be?
Kanye West or Jimi Hendrix or both.
Q. What is the importance of art in life according to you?
Inspiration for more to be created.
Q. Any tips or advice for the young artists?
Go out and do it and put it out their warts and all.
Q. In the process of creating this album, can you share an unexpected source of inspiration that took your work in a surprising direction?
The way James Bannister used the launch keypad was ridiculous which led me to let DJ Aye play guitar on guitar. In the future, I hope I just care less about perfection and take risks a bit more.
Q. If your album could serve as the soundtrack for a film genre or a specific movie, which one would it be and why?
Probably Star Wars to be honest, for most of my music anyway.
Q. Can you identify a particular moment or track in the album where you felt you were pushing your own artistic boundaries, and can you share more about that experience?
Not being able to talk or sing for two months and doing the song Elsternwick when it was just getting better.
Q. Any plans for performing live concerts in 2023-24?
Book me and get me there and pay me, sure.
Q. Any hints for our readers about any upcoming collaboration or new projects that you are working on?
Still got to do the Douche EP with Jolo Swog (Mural Spider).
Q. Lastly, as we ask all our guests on our platform, do you have any closing thoughts that you would like to share with the world and our readers?
Aim for perfection always. Thank you!
