An Interview with President Street

Which music artists have influenced your musical style?

That’s a tough question cos the truth is its always a bit of a cross-section of stuff you grew up with (it’s the same for everyone I suppose) but the strongest influence is probably Prince and especially his willingness to mix up the sonics a bit with distorted guitars playing on top of unashamed pop tracks and also his use of quirky synth lines. Particularly live. 

What do you hope to achieve through your music?

A connection.

What’s coming up for you over the next 12 months?

We’ve got heaps of tracks to still get out there and there’s talk of maybe an album soon so let’s see :)

What words of wisdom do you have for upcoming music artists?

Make sure you’ve got the right people in your ear (… or is that voices in your head?)!

How do you define success in the music industry?

Good question. Success obviously means different things to different people but to me I think its when the people you’d like to reach out to (wherever they are) have a familiarity with your music and are actually keen to chat.

What’s your proudest career moment to date?

It would have to be first time I heard ‘Yeah I Know’ being played on a radio station in the States :)
