Get to know violinist Richmond Punch

How long have you been doing what you’re doing and how did you get started in the first place?

I am been in entertainment for about 20 years. It was Dallas Public Schools that changed my life giving me a violin. The Dallas Symphony’s Young Strings trained me.

Who were the first influences on your music and style?

High School was where owned my first cds. I remember it like yesterday: Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington and Branford Marsalis with his Bloomington Trio.

In your opinion who is the most influential and successful artist in your genre today and why?

Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Jean Luc Ponty, Beyonce. Because they are really not all one singular genre. That’s the key to their success.

What aspect of the music making process excites you most, and what aspect discourages you the most?

I think like a songwriter and hope to write many songs for vocalists as well as scoring for film. This is most exciting. Discouraging, not at all

In your experience thus far, what is the best piece of advice in this business you actually followed? And one you didn’t follow, but now know for sure that you should have?

Keep life organized the best you can. A plan is the first step but a schedule is even better. I have the plan down but my wife schedules it lol.

Which ingredient do you think is most essential in making your sound and style the way it is?

I listen to tons of vocalists and instrumentalists. Sound wise I play a 5 String Yamaha Violin and love Boss effects. I really feel I have found my sound although there is always room to evolve.

What single are you currently pushing and what will you be dropping next?

3 new singles from my upcoming EP “Back that Violin Up” Taste, Mother’s Love and Back That Violin Up.

 

What can fans expect from you in the future and where can they stay up to date on your movement?

Interview by TreDuBB Editor and Boss Supastarsmag

Getting To Know International Artist Gabbi Music

 

  • What drew you to the music industry?

 

  • I have been doing music whole my life. I started to play violin when I was 4 years old and music became a big part of my life since then.

 

  • Who are you inspired by?

 

  • I prefer to say what, cause I feel that I have so much to say and express. That’s kind of my own feeling to write, play and sing my emotions out. Of course many artists are good example, but I want to do my own thing.

 

  • Please explain your creative process
  • I start with lyrics, just writing down feelings, emotions, things that I see around me, then I arrange chords and the melody is the last part. Sometimes some melody comes to my mind and everything starts from there. It’s nice to have company when creating something new so we can share feelings and make everything working great.

 

 

 

  • What’s an average day like for you?

 

  • Well just now I’m working as a teacher in elementary school so big part of my day goes there. As a single parent I have also many other responsibilities, but music is always my passion, so I try to sing, play and create as much as possible.

 

  • Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music?

 

  • Well in some songs you can find lyrics that tell the story where could be hidden some things for certain people. They’ll know those signs. 😉

 

  • Do you collaborate with others? What is that process?

 

  • Yes of course, that’s very big part of the process, you’ll get new ideas or improvements that you maybe didn’t notice by yourself. The process depends about the situation and is different every time.

 

  • Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans

 

  • Social media is a very important way to get in touch with people. I get many messages on Instagram and Facebook and try to answer them all. Also people come to talk to me in the street or after gigs.

 

  • What is your favorite part about this line of work? Your least favorite? Why?

 

  • I love all of this <3 Sometimes when work is in the middle and I don’t get in done, it bothers me. Just then collaboration with other musicians is very important.

 

  • Have you ever dealt with performance anxiety?

 

  • Oh yes, many times. But I think it’s part of the process. You get adrenaline and then you have the right drive to do your best at the stage.

 

  • Tell me about your favorite performance venues

 

  • I like quite small places where audience is close. The feeling is really intimate and you can sense people’s reactions very well.

 

  • What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?

 

  • Find your passion and then practice, practice and practice. Collaborate with other musicians and follow your heart. Don’t you never ever give up on you dreams! Love you all!

“The Geneva Convention” Comic Book and Song
Rapper / comic book creator Slow Chemical (comic book pseudonym “Ryan White”) is changing the game with his latest comic book release “The
Geneva Convention” and the single to accompany the comic of the same name.
The Comic book for The Geneva Convention chronicles the adventures of Reyah Khan, a former CIA agent loving her life when her past comes back to haunt and attempt to kill her.  She goes on a mission with her friend Chase to put an end to an old
enemy while thwarting a billion dollar sex ring.  The comic is very colorful and action packed and you can check out a direct link to The Geneva Convention comic at the direct link below on Amazon
The song named after the comic to cross promote Slow Chemical AKA Ryan White’s talents is just as neat and well written as the pages of the comic!  The beat brings out some of the best in Slow Chemical lyrically and prompts him to deliver a stellar performance.  Listen to the full song at this direct link
