Give us your bio,Who are your top 5 influences,When are your new projects coming out?What helped you get into music? What is one thing you would tell your fans? What are your biggest goals for 2016?
I am 17 and live in Los Angeles. I started playing guitar when I was 9, and then played in various bands over the years. I started to write songs in high school, and eventually got a 4 track to record on. I started releasing music under the name Parking Lot at the beginning of this year. I play all the instruments on my records and write all of the songs.
In terms of songwriting, Blood Orange, Slowdive, and New Order are all big influences. Dirty Beaches and 18 Carat Affair are the biggest influences on my production.
I’ll be releasing my next single August 24, and then hopefully another EP sometime in early September. I’ll have an album out by October.
My dad helped me get into music. When I was really young, he got me into Led Zeppelin, and then I just explored more music from there. Having access to the Internet at a young age was also really influential cause I was able to find most music i liked on my own. Buy a record!
My biggest goal for the year is to release 2 EPs and an album, and to have it all recorded on the 4 track. I’m also looking for a live band; playing shows again is definitely a big goal.
