Interview with Saves The Witch

Today, I was able to sit down with the one man entrepreneur of music Saves The Witch! We talked about music inspiration, advice for musicians and much more! Be sure to check out his music below after the interview on Spotify!


What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your surroundings?

It’s complex and hard to really sum up, but I would say emotion and connection make up a lot of my inspiration. Sometimes it’s hard to explain how you feel with words, and I think music is a good outlet for that.

What type of music did you listen to growing up?

Growing up? My parents really got me into the Steve Miller Band, I still love them. I had a big disco and techno phase too. I remember really latching onto the album “Dizzy up the Girl” by the Goo Goo Dolls when it came out. The best songs on that album for me weren’t the singles. It caused me to really explore full albums a lot.

Is there someone you looked up as a hero?

I always admired my father.

If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing today?

If I were going to do something else it could be so many things. Possibly something in aviation. I learned to fly a little when I was a teen and I really loved that.

What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create music?

I would say be prepared to push, constantly. Push past obstacles in your way, and also remember that if you want your music heard you have to take up marketing yourself or pay someone else to do it. You can’t just release stuff and hope the right person is going to find it and you’ll “make it”. That’s not how it works anymore. Writing recording and releasing is half the battle, the rest is cutting through the noise to find your audience. It’s hard actual work. If the music means enough to you that you release it, then do it justice by marketing it after the fact.
