Greetings to the drooble community. I'm a musician and producer from Lithuania. I create/produce/release music as an independent musician under the artist name Monssun. I got into music professionally since 2012, although it has been a part of my life since childhood. Hope you enjoy some of my tracks. You can find my music on most music streaming / download platforms.
It gives me purpose, self expression and the ability to create something that lasts. And it's also fun and exciting.
To write the best pieces I can, and it would be amazing if a lot of people would listen to it and appreciate it.
There are so many areas that need changing. From poverty to corruption and to getting rid of diseases. I think I'd start with curing as much diseases as possible.
There are many, can't exclude one. Although from my childhood I really remember listening to Sk8er Boy by Avril Lavigne.
The Rasmus are my loves from my early experiences with music and from the times I was a teenager. I took a lot from them in terms of lyrics, musical structure and so on. Then I played in a rock band for several years and those influences really made a difference to what we were creating. Now as a solo artist I tend to listen to a lot of electronic / pop genres. One of my favorite artists nowadays are Grimes, Royksopp, Deadmou5, and some others, I think they really create amazing music.
It can be anything. Sometimes personals experiences play a role in what I create, sometimes I'm just having fun creating music and that's what it is. A lot of other artists that produce great music inspire me today.
I think every song speaks for itself, and every song is different. It can be from sharing a personal experience to delivering some sort of message, I tend towards spreading kindness, love, sometimes just fun, or a great production.
Apart from some anxiety in the end it feels good to deliver something to an audience. Whatever musical work it may be.
I think a lot of musicians struggle to be heard nowadays. The music game is now easier than ever, it's easier to record, easier to do everything even by yourself, but the media is really stuffed with content nowadays and that is an area that needs to be addressed somehow. Drooble actually great for sharing your music, it really delivers value to musicians that want to be heard compared to other services. On the other hand it's amazing to have these tools and available knowledge to make music that was really hard in the old days.
I think it's great. It delivers lots of useful tools for musicians and the community is awesome.
Promoting yourself. It's really hard nowadays.
I tend to listen to some Lithuanian artists that I like. Like Vidas Bareikis, Otreya, Lilas ir Innomine. These and others are great musical acts of Lithuania, we have a lot of talent here. So I mainly support by listening, maybe commenting if that could be called support. I attend shows but rarely.
Self confidence and deliver great music in all aspects.
The list is long. Royksopp, Kiasmos, Otreya, Vidas Bareikis, Leon Somov & Jazzu, Lilas ir Innomine, Deadmou5, The Rasmus, Muse, Nightwish, Poets of the Fall, Skrillex, Tycho, Imagine Dragons and many more...
