The Other Side of Tomorrow
How would you describe this album's sound?
It's a fusion of classic rock influences: the Zombies, Neil Young and also a mix of sounds from groups like the B-52's, the Beatles and Lenny Kravitz. I hear so many different things from people who have heard the record. I was trying to go universal; I wasn't trying to pigeon-hole myself into a sound, I just wanted to make music that anyone can relate to no matter what genre of music they listen to.
Tell me about your alter ego, the Slakadeliqs?
The name came about from a fellow artist who came into the studio and she looked at me and went, "slakadeliq" [laughs]. I'm a fan of '70s music and the whole psychedelic sound. I thought that was a cool combination of words. We're forming the band right now. I did all the instruments on this album except for strings and flutes.
What was the inspiration for the title?
I'm being a little more experimental; I'm going to have a different outlook and different fans based on the sound. It's going to be a different tomorrow after you hear the music, a different experience then the one you're used to. (Independent)
