1 — Hey Chris, thanks for your time. What is the message you want to convey with your song “Remember To Forget”?
The song wasn’t really written with anything in mind. Maybe it was a story or a feeling that I worked through in my dreams, or my relationships or the stories I read and hear about. I can’t really remember exactly. 🙂
2 — Who inspired you to write its lyrics?
3 — What did you like the most about the experience of filming the visuals for this single?
5 — In your opinion, are good singers born or made?
My voice is my main Instrument. Mainly because I can vocalize what I hear in my head the fastest that way. I use guitar, bass, drum pads, voice effects, a loop station, and a synthesizer live.
7 — How has your music changed over the years?
My mother would always sing with me as a child. I would sometimes spend days communicating everything through singing. I then learned to play the Cello and took bass lessons later on. In high school, I had a great percussion teacher. I was heavily into hard rock, alternative rock, early Hip Hop and folk as a teenager and then became fascinated by roots music, especially dub, early ska, and reggae. At that point, I was very critical of electronic music. that changed when I worked with some balkan, electro swing and global beats artists from Germany and Austria.
8 — When did you start your artistic career?
I got to sing the high pitch solo in my primary school class choir and nailed it. It was in a venue with an amazing sound. I will never forget that. I had a cast at the time.
9 — Are there any live shows on your agenda for 2019?
I will be performing a lot in 2019, so please check my website www.chrisbeermusic.com to stay up to date.
10 — What do the upcoming months have in store for Chris Beer?
Besides the work I do with my solo project, which has continuously grown since I started 3 years ago, I really enjoy working on songs and lyrics for other artists. I have written songs for Rock, Electro, Pop, Jazz, and world music artists and I really enjoy writing songs in different genres.
I will definitely continue to do that as well, but I can not say to what extent it will be possible to fit that in this year as my schedule is filling up quicker every year. Besides the live shows, I have several new recordings and videos lined up. I don’t want to spill all the beans just yet, but it looks like I will be traveling and going to places and experiencing cultures I have never been to before. I am excited about that.
