We caught up with Heistheartist for a brief interview to discover the individual behind the music.
What inspired you to get into music?
Well I always loved Smooth Jazz music since I was a kid. My mother use to play the old school Smooth jazz records and I instantly fell in love. I grew up in the 90s at the hight of the Smooth Jazz Era, so the Smooth Jazz sound is ingrained in me from that also.
How would you describe your music?
It’s a mixture of Smooth Jazz and Neo-Soul. My song “Boom (Love Version)” leans more towards the nostalgic Smooth Jazz sound though.
What would you say is your recording and song writing style?
My writing style is a mixture of old school and new school. Lyrically my songs always fall into the old school tradition rather than the current sexually driven themes in music.
Where would you like to see your music career in 5 years time?
Definitely touring around the world reaching more and more people with my positive music.
