In this episode I speak with pianist, synthesist, producer, vocalist and songwriter Glasys. We talk about his immigration from Israel to Portland, Oregon, discovering a new local music scene, and the pivotal moments that lead to touring and recording with Todd Rundgren.
I discovered Glasys while listening to the Music Business Hacks podcast and related to his big move from Israel to Portland, and how that affects your music career. In my case that was from Texas to California, and ultimately to Panama.
We talk about how he grew his audiences through posting videos on Reddit, and more. We also listen to People from his latest album, Defective Humanity.
Glasys and I start by talking about his two albums and the differences between creating them. We go on to discuss:
“I get kind of bored if I stick to my comfort zone. I enjoy challenging myself. You have to challenge yourself just the right amount so it’s not too overwhelming.”
“I think the art suffers if you just keep repeating yourself.” —Glasys
