Hailing from DC, Saint brings real life scenarios with his songs. The story reflects his hardships of growing up.
Was there something (an experience) or someone in your life that was the "catalyst" for you to start writing music? Tell us about it.
I grew up without family. Being in the streets of DC brought along a lot of traumatic experiences. I carried these around with me for my entire life. When I write about them it's like a release.
Let's get this out of the way. What is the CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened to you in your music career?
I was in the club one night and this guy ran up and said "SaintBrown?" Then he proceeded to start singing one of my songs!
What has been the high point of your music path?
Having a fan from another country tell me he didn't feel alone in his struggles after listening to my music.
So, how do you approach songwriting or what is your creative process like?
I just think about rough times in my life and wrote about them.
What do you see as the biggest challenge facing Indie Artists today? Or, if you could ask the music industry to change one thing, what would it be?
If you don't conform to the general public you might not be heard
If you could share the stage with one other artist or band, who would it be and why?
Demi Levato, Sam Smith, or Adam Levine. Sorry... can't narrow it down anymore. They all present music with such a grace I would want to be a part of that.
What are your rehearsals generally like? Or, how do you prepare for a live show?
Usually 24 to 47 hours before the show is when I really turn up rehearsal. Before that is just writing out and planning song choices, placement, etc.
Pick one song that was your greatest challenge to write. Tell us about it!
"One Day" was exceptionally hard. I kept breaking down in the studio and had to start over and over.
What's coming up in the future?
New EP coming soon called "Therapy Sessions"
