How would you describe your music to someone who’s never heard it?
ChrispyD: Relatable. Catchy. Simple. Timeless.
Which of your songs best captures the essence of ChrispyD?
ChrispyD: I like to think all of them of course, but if I had to pick one, I’d say ‘no one is reliable’. The concept of having no one to depend on is an emotion everybody feels at some point. Having the listeners relate to what I’m saying is my number one priority.
If you could be the voice for one group of people, who would it be?
ChrispyD: The unspoken for as a whole. If you say something to a listener that they’ve been thinking about, that nobody else has been able to put into words, it creates an instant connection. You’ve created a potential supporter for life.
Who are some influences (artists or not) in your music?
ChrispyD: Shakespeare’s timeless stories and concepts are a big influence on my music. In terms of modern day artists, Kid Cudi, Vic Mensa & Blackbear all top the list as some of my biggest influences.
What does your creative process look like?
ChrispyD: Different each and every track. It’s a lot of feeling out and waiting for inspiration to strike. Recently I’ve been using concepts to help keep my catalogue moving as there is not much motivation to be had quarantining for the last year.
How has the pandemic affected the creative process?
ChrispyD: Definitely. Prior to the pandemic I would go experience things in the world and that would help inspire me. These days, you’re having to manufacture motivation in a way. It took me the first 4 months of quarantine to adapt as an artist.
How have you been connecting with your fans?
ChrispyD: Mainly Instagram or Discord. I love Discord as an artist. Makes communicating a lot easier.
There’s been a larger presence of guitar in your beats over time. What other instruments and sounds interest you?
ChrispyD: Bass. I want people to be able to dance to my songs so bass is a great way to do that.
What message do you want to send through your work?
ChrispyD: I want the listener to know they’re not alone.
In or out of the music industry, what kind of impact do you want to make in the world?
ChrispyD: I’m a believer in the ripple effect. If I make positive impacts on people daily by doing small things, I think that most people will pass it on. Once I’m in a better position financially to do so I’d also love to donate to the Tourette’s Syndrome Association, as well as The Arthritis Foundation, as I dealt with both of those conditions growing up.
What can we expect from you in the near future?
ChrispyD: In 2021, I plan on dropping 17-20 records, most of which are finished and already scheduled to drop. Pop, Rock, Soul, Country, & Grunge, you will hear elements of each of those genres from me in 2021.
