“I’m a fan of doing things differently and having individuality even if others don’t agree.” Interview with Tyler Shapiro AKA Anotherpatsy

in Arts/Exclusive Interviews

With the current state of politics and race issues, Anotherpatsy feels we need to truly get in touch with our hearts. Songwriting has always been his outlet, growing up in a home with a toxic environment. He has learnt that honest songwriting is a bit more of a difficult path because not everyone is willing to come to terms with their own demons. He believes it is the responsible thing to do and in doing so is able to remain true to himself. Talk about your most recent release? I put out an experimental song in October just to keep people on their toes, it’s a guitar riff, I’d consider it more experimental and avant garde. I’m a big fan of doing things differently and having individuality even if other’s don’t agree. I love to read about music from the 50’s, 60’s. In that sense I’m a bit of an old soul but I know what I want in the studio because of that knowledge. Where do you draw most of your inspiration for your music?  I think because I am a sensitive guy that likes talking about more vulnerable feelings. I am also bisexual and have experienced rejection. Knowing…
