Jem Bosatta Interview on Nagamag

.


Nagamag:
Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Jem Bosatta:
Folk, acoustic, singer-songwriter


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Jem Bosatta:
I grew up between two homes, the fields of south England and the mountains of north Italy. From the very beginning my music was tied to places: I've always been strongly influenced by folk music. I started writing music five years ago, but I wrote poetry for many years before that and that's still at the very heart of what I do: I want every single lyric to earn its place. Right now I'm about to release


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Jem Bosatta:
My first love is still my main love and it's playing unamplified, alone, a couple of yards away from the listener, in a silent room or on a still night by a campfire. Other music is intense in other ways, but when I get to create that particular kind of intensity, that's when I know I'm doing the right thing for myself and anyone listening.


Nagamag:
What's the new record about?

Jem Bosatta:
"Loss and Love" is a collection of six stories that all opened my eyes to something new about what it means to be a man. I was really invested in the topic when I was preparing the record, because I had the feeling that men talked a lot about mankind but we didn't really have a complex, subtle language to talk about masculinity apart from "toxic". So in these songs I wanted to recount a wide spectrum of my experience of this mysterious condition, from beautiful to dark to ordinary things.


Nagamag:
Is the record available in physical format?

Jem Bosatta:
Yes, but not like you know it. I didn't want to create waste, so together with the graphic designer Gabriel Jeanjean I've developed a really special EP product. I call it "music for your fingers": it's a lyric book that was created as a tactile, aesthetic, musical, analogue-digital journey. You can buy on my Bandcamp page - jembosatta.bandcamp.com. And if you want the CD too, I can include one in the delivery for free... but most people don't actually listen to CDs so I thought I'd make it optional.


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Jem Bosatta:
Self "Noname"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?

Jem Bosatta:
Sam Amidon "Time Has Made a Change"

Catty.L Interview on Nagamag


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Catty.L:
New Age, Neoclassical, Ambient, World, Singer-songwriter


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Catty.L:
Since the age 3 I've been learning to play piano and accordion, music had become a part of my life when I was a kid. I used to sing a lot (well maybe I still do?), then started writing music on my own since I found it's way more interesting. In 2017 my first single "Tirta Empul" was released, after that I've been writing many works in the genres of New Age, Neo-classical, ambient and world music. This year 2020 I'm publishing new Single/EP/albums every month, I'm always excited to write something new !


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Catty.L:
I don't think there's a single one moment that made my wanna be a music artist... Like I said, music is a part of my life, some everything just happened very naturally. Real music can live for us after we died, and help us being remembered by the world, and that's one of the reason becoming a music artist.


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

Catty.L:
Alexandre Desplat "The Angel"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Catty.L:
Olafur Arnalds "Near Light"

The Bergamot Interview on Nagamag.com

The Bergamot
Interview


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

The Bergamot:
A big part of our music is the lyrical development and storytelling. We get a lot of that inspiration from old folk music. However, we see ourselves existing in the alternative/pop genre. So we are constantly finding ways to connect the two somehow. Sometimes it connects and sometimes it doesn't. Our job is to keep showing up...


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

The Bergamot:
On October 20th, 2017 The Bergamot released the dreamy anthem P.D.R. (Both Records LLC). The single launched the band's career who was then discovered by Matt Wiggins (Adele, U2, Florence and the Machine) and achieved great reviews being called "The hottest emerging music talent" (People) and "a gorgeous sound" (Daily Mirror). Fans have discovered the band through an unbelievable series of music videos released to promote the new album "MAYFLIES". The videos have been heralded by music critics as "Lush" (PARADE) and "The Perfect Blend" (EARMILK). These groundbreaking videos have brought light to difficult topics and continued to build upon the band's momentum from "P.D.R.". The videos have garnered over 150k views on YouTube. Music blogs from all over the world have taken to "MAYFLIES". The band's single "L.A." has landed at the #1 spot on SubmitHub and the group looks to expand it's presence on the radio both domestically and abroad. The Bergamot was invited to open for OneRepublic and perform their first stadium show in early 2020. The Bergamot is composed of husband-wife duo Nathaniel Paul Hoff and Jillian Speece from the post-industrial town of South Bend, IN near the southeastern shores of serene Lake Michigan. The duo is all American sweethearts from the heartland. In a recent interview, Hoff states, "Jillian and I both look back fondly at our years growing up in Indiana." Growing up they both sang and performed in the church band. They pulled on influences ranging from Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Nick Drake, and Bob Dylan. The band's main writer Nathaniel discovered the literary genius of fellow midwestern poet Carl Sandberg and his work capturing the life and strain of American life. "The music and the songwriting itself is pinnacle" Hoff explained to Trend and Chaos (NYC). Telling the American story one word at a time the songs touch on many aspects of American life in 2019.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

The Bergamot:
I remember the first time playing at a coffeehouse in downtown South Bend called Higher Grounds. People had to stand on top of coffee tables to see the show. It changed my life. The cops showed up...


Nagamag:
What's your musical background?

The Bergamot:
We both studied music in college. I (Nathaniel) focused on classical guitar, music theory, and vocal development. Jillian focused primarily on the voice.


Nagamag:
What do you love doing besides music?

The Bergamot:
Jillian - making/eating food Nathaniel - Golf


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

The Bergamot:

Nagamag:
