My other musical interests, styles, and instruments are:
I'm really moved by blending musical genres and eras in my own music- sampling old blues or jazz songs and turning them into a modern pop tracks, or making an experimental glitch/chillwave sound cohere with stripped down and natural instrumentation.
My favorite artists, influences, and inspirations are:
Don Ellis, Lana Del Rey, Vampire Weekend, John Lee Hooker, Gorillaz, Lily Allen, Azealia Banks
More about me:
I've been writing music since age 11 and I'm currently in the production stage of my second album under my stage name Kata Bel Air. It's getting released this summer digitally and on CD. The promotional EP is out now- http://romanmarrs.bandcamp.com/album/glitch-glamour-ep
I've been really lucky to have the opportunities I've gotten as a musician- I've played at the red carpet premiere event for the documentary The Force Within Us, my first single was featured on indie radio twice in two weeks, and after being dared on Tumblr to write and record a rap song in one day (which I had never done before), the website RapGenius verified me based on the merit of that one song.
I'm also producing original works for a bunch of other musicians in my area, which has been really exciting and different for me. I like working from the production and writing standpoints equally.
