Interview with Sydney Artist, Sam Weston.

 

What spurred the birth of the your music?
I’ve always made music with other people. Starting a solo project was something I always wanted to do and I felt now was the right time.

What are your influences?
Mostly my friends and artists around me in Sydney. Best Fester, Cop Envy, Jon Watts, Lauren Lee. They all inspire me.

What do you do when you’re not consumed by your music?
Musics become pretty all-consumer really.

What would you do if you weren’t making music?
I’ve always been attracted to farming. I’d probably go Rural.

What is success to you? Fame? Fortune? Fun?
Just enjoying what I’m doing and having the time and resources to do it how I want to.

What the best experience you’ve had while playing?
I played a festival in NZ once on a stage next to a lake full of people swimming. It was beautiful.

Why do you do what you do?
That’s a deeper question than 3 lines allow.

Have any of you tried to quit before?
I’ve thought bout it. Defining yourself as an artist is a strange stress to put on yourself. I’ll stop when I stop having fun.

What’s your favourite venue to play?
GoodGod Small Club (R.I.P)

Plans for the future?
Make more music, play more shows.
