Interview with Z Chambers
What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today?
If I wasn’t pursuing music, I would be pursuing a career in film. I like films very much.
What do you like to do when you are not playing music and how does that influence your creativity?
I like to watch movies and play video games. I’m not sure how much this has influenced my own art, but it has definitely given me an appreciation for the music found in entertainment products.
How long have you been making music?
For about 12 years, depending on what you consider making music.
Where are you based out of and how did that influence your music?
I am based in Los Angeles, and the way I feel that influenced my music is that I listened to a lot of America’s Top 40.
Tell me about your most memorable shows, if you haven’t played live what is your vision for a live show?
My most memorable shows were at The Study in Hollywood, and an impromptu performance I did on the strip of Las Vegas. The Study because of the large audience I got to perform for, and the Las Vegas one because I managed to attract a crowd that cheered and danced with me.
What is your favorite venue to play at, and do you have any places you want to play that you have not already?
My favorite venue is at The Study. The Study being on Hollywood Boulevard (The walk of fame), has a fairly decent size crowd and it is always fun entertaining people with some great music.
I think it would be awesome to play at bigger venues like The Hollywood Bowl and The Staples Center.
If you could play any show with any lineup, who would be on the ticket?
Justin Timberlake, Ne-Yo, Zayn Malik, and Justin Bieber. Even though they’d all probably make me look bad, haha.
What is some advice that you would give to someone who is just getting into making music and some advice that you would give to your younger self?
Focus on yourself. Don’t forget to focus on yourself.
Of your songs which one means the most to you and why?
The song that means the most to me is “Cold”. I went through a bad breakup with my first girlfriend, and I think “Cold” perfectly captures the emotional state I was left in. It also has a wonderful melody to boot.
Which songs are your favorite to play and which get requested the most?
Trap and Cold are favorites to play. Fire of Love and Victory have been requested the most, but always by the same two people.
What is your creative process, and what inspires you to write your music?
My creative process usually involves me creating a melody first, and then adding in lyrics. What inspires me to write my music is the hope that I can help someone with their struggles or at least make their day a little better.
Do you have messages that you like to get across in your music, if so please tell me about them?
In my songs I like to capture the ups and downs of relationships, and the human emotion.
What are your plans for the future, and do you have anything that you want to spotlight that is coming up?
My plan for the future is to continue making music and I would like to spotlight my brand-new EP which is releasing on Sept. 22nd.
