Hey hey, it's Kanttila. This 50/90 was great and now it's time to do some Rocktober covers.
I'm a 24 year old musical dude from Northern Ontario who makes One Man Band music in the basement. I play guitar, drums, and bass along and had to become a vocalist & lyrist to make music. I started recording music in the summer of 2016 and I've so far made 20 albums. My idea is prolific over perfect. I started recording with a PS2 Rockband mic, which I used for far too long, and finally upgraded to a Blue Yeti recently. I keep it fairly simple. In my songs I express what I'm interested in and feeling at the time of recording.
My musical journey began 11 years ago when I listened to KISS' Psycho Circus album. My passion for music and obsession over bands was set off. AC/DC songs taught me guitar, Metallica leveled it up and everything came together when I learnt what the Blues Scale was 4 years into playing guitar. Bruce Springsteen is my ultimate musical hero and his music is the most important in my life. KISS, AC/DC and Bruce are my ultimate trio, music that still gives me power and inspiration.
Two albums that got me to actually make music were Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited and Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation. Both showed me what music and expression could be and it was enough to get me writing lyrics and then figuring out I can do my own recordings. I take inspiration from J-Pop also, which is the majority of what I listen to day to day. Utada Hikaru, Seiko Oomori, BiSH, BAND-MAID, Yui, DAOKO, Perfume & miwa are my favorites. I also take lots of inspiration from anime.
