Brady Amour is a Texas native with an extraordinary background and he sat down with us to tell us his story on how he got to where he is today.

First things first where are you from and how old are you?

I’m from Dallas and I prefer my age to be an enigma.

300 like Chief Keef for sure. So tell me about Dallas, What was it like growing up there for you?

I moved around Texas a lot as a kid but Dallas was the only place I ever considered my home. I always really enjoyed the cultural diversity of Dallas and there’s always been a really good music scene. I remembered going to a lot of shows in Dallas as a kid like warped tour and shit and that was where I developed my passion for making music.

Dallas definitely such a powerful scene. Who were some early musical influences for you growing up?

So I really into Blink 182, The Get Up Kids, and Norma Jean just overall really into post hardcore and pop punk.

You can tell it influenced you a lot for sure. At what point did you decide to start making music?

So it began when I begged my parents for drum set and I finally got one from a garage sale and then I just taught myself everyday through listening to CDs and playing along. As for singing I liked how bands like Blink 182 were able to cuss on songs so I started writing lyrics just for fun and kind of just kept going.

Wow drums are such a sick start, at what point did you start doing vocals and create your first song?

So in my first band I was the drummer and somehow we played in a strip club and I noticed the singer was getting way more attention than me and I literally decided the next day I needed start singing more. This was around like freshman year in high school so I don’t actually how we played in that strip club.

That’s absolutely gold to be honest I woulda probably done the same thing. What’s your favorite song you’ve made or released so far?

Cross my heart and hope to die. To me it’s just so fun and catchy and I produced it myself so it’s just something I’m really proud of.

Honestly a banger I love that joint. How long does it particularly take you to make a song?

It all depends sometimes it takes a day sometimes it takes like a week or more. Just depending on how inspired I am about what I’m writing about or if I’m really feeling a beat it makes me a lot more motivated to push things out faster.

For sure I can definitely agree with that a lot. What are your top 5 studio necessities? Things you can’t be in the studio without?

First ones gotta be some good weed then I gotta light a bunch of candles it’s like a ritual with really dim lighting and definitely a bunch of water I’m a hydrated person. Then sometimes my dog, Olive, she’s like the studio dog if she can be quiet.

That sounds perfect honestly and shoutout Olive. What are your plans for the rest of the winter and 2019?

I’m about to put out a music video so hopefully everyone enjoys that when it’s out and there’s a couple projects I have in the making that I’m excited about. Overall just trying to better my craft and definitely opening as much Pokémon cards as I can I’ve been really into making Pokémon unboxing videos lately.

We’ll definitely be on the lookout for new  that’s gonna be so fire. I noticed your Pokémon hobby is popping off that’s so sick to me. When did you start getting into un-boxings?

So I was a huge fan of Pokémon growing up but recently someone got my Pokémon cards as a gift and I just got addicted all over again my girlfriend fucking hates it but I love the thrill of opening a booster pack.

Bro that’s so relatable for me keep going that’s definitely good nostalgia, back to music for a sec who are some artists you’d like to work with in the future? Big or small.

Real talk I’d love to work with the Jonas Brothers and Post Malone that’d be top tier. But for real there’s so many artist to even name that have come up and I’m so grateful for the handful that I have worked with and hopefully I’ll continue to work with cool people in the future.

You’re library is substantial already and I think anyone you work with in the future is gonna be a great collab. Jonas brothers would be so sick for sure. What would be the first thing you would do if you got filthy rich?

I’d definitely buy a flamethrower I looked into that pretty recently actually or maybe buy my own red lobster location for unlimited biscuits.

Both of those are actually great investments lmao. Music aside, what keeps you going? What keeps you sane when you aren’t creating?

I just like to end a particularly hectic day by playing some video games or watching something like game of thrones and eating some pizza.

It’s always good to wind down for sure I feel you on that. My last question for you is who are your top 5 favorite artists of all time?

In no particular order: Saosin with Anthony green, Blink 182, George Strait, Spice Girls, Korn

Wow what a power list I like that a lot thats easily one of the best yet. Before we sign off do you have any last shoutouts or words of motivation?

Just a huge thank you to everyone’s who’s been listening to my stuff and allowing me to share my creativity with you. And a huge thank you for taking the time out to interview me I appreciate it.

Absolutely and it was our pleasure thank you for your words UVC is definitely gonna keep an eye out.
