host of A.V.A Live Radio
Band Name: Marty Gray
Song name: Ember
Genre: Electronica
This song is about: People living fast and dying too young. The track explores a fictional character who dies at the hand of her own lifestyle. With this song I’d like to challenge the notion that young death has to be tragic, and instead offer a more tempered mindset.
My music is: A coursed dinner your head and soul can share, somewhere in between electronica and folk.

How do you think this release represents your current direction:
I’d like to believe my career is set for the long run, and this release represents an excellent foundation. This track could serve as a springboard, poised for many directions.

 

Where do you create your music…
I write, record, edit, and mix everything in my basement all on my own. I love my acoustic guitar, my saxophone, my Oxygen 25 midi keyboard, and of course my yellow notepad. My yellow notepad is my God.

 

How do you stay focused and balance creating with life:
Day to day life can offer many vibes and feelings. I like thinking I can work a vibe to my advantage when I need to create – even if the vibe of the day is negative or counter-productive.

Eating fruit in the morning also helps!

What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking?:
 Steve Zegree once told me “if you see yourself doing something other than music, then do that”. I chose to do music.

I live in: I live in Ann Arbor. The music scene here is ever so vibrant, populated mainly with folk and indie rock music.
