-Congratulations on ‘Cruel Intentions’, it is such a great track. It seemed like a very personal track. Very heartfelt and soulful. Where does this track come from? What inspired the song?
A lot of stuff happened before the blue album in my life. The album kind of stems from that. This was the first track I wrote for the new album. I thought people were looking out for me, but found out that I may have been naive. This album was a therapy for me to look at myself and take control of my own path.
-The music video for it takes an even more personal touch with a single shot of you narrating to the camera, it felt more serious and elegant. Are you leaving the Lo-fi graphics and vaporware-like videos behind for good?
Never know what will happen in the future honestly. It’s just a different time now. I have a different vision for the new music and will probably have another different one when I make new music. It’s just the flow of things.
-Through out every phase of your career, with every project we got to see a different artist. It wasn’t until you founded White Room Records that we got to see the real JMSN.Do you think that there was a reinvention process for this upcoming album?If so how meaningful is it to you as the JMSN we know now?
-You are definitely one of the busiest solo acts in the industry. From touring, producing and recording, to planning distribution and the art direction of your work. Do you think its worth being in complete control of your art?
-I sense that the character of JMSN is much of a distinguished loner, a bohemian soul who is not afraid to point out the darkest and sinful thoughts of the underworld. Where many other R&B singers focus too much on personifying sex and drugs in narcissistic ways. JMSN really digs deeper into what human insecurities and addiction can do to a vulnerable soul. How do you think you compare to other R&B singers?
-I mean we’ve seen you stalk an ex girlfriend, being chased and beaten up by the police, to even making it rain on a transgender stripper in your music videos. How do you manage to separate your personal life apart from the JMSN persona? Is JMSN in a way a representation of Christian’s personal experiences?
-I noticed that on soundcloud both your personal work and collaborations do very well. Are there any exiting collaborations in the works?
-I think now days most artist in this industry are linked to each other and help promote each other. Either by being in the same label, or an art collectives or by their local scene. Do you think that with you being such an independent artist It might make it more difficult for you to find the exposure?
-The Blue Album imagery and vibe was very reminiscing of Detroit in the 90’s. Do you still hang out in the city? I’ve heard that there is a big underground industrial scene on the rise.
-When can we expect more music from you?
I will have two albums coming out this year.
-If you could handpick three artist for Spotify to match you with, under the “Related Artist” category. Who would you pick and why?
