Exclusive Spotlight Interview With American Pop Rising Star MASN
Artist on the rise MASN releases “Hate Me!” “Hate Me!” is the first release off his debut EP How To Kill A Rockstar which is due out later this summer.
Where are you from?
I’m from Eagle Mountain, Utah. A rural town that’s becoming a city with tons of open fields and mountains. Nature is a big part of my day to day life.
Tell us about your single ‘Psycho’, how was the work on it, who were the people who contributed to the single, and what is the story behind it?
I found the beat for “Psycho!” on YouTube and the first time I heard it I mumbled to myself the melody and wrote the whole song then and there in my bedroom. A couple of days later I went to the studio and recorded it in about 30 mins and dropped it a few days after that. It’s a story about an impromptu party that got a bit out of control.
After Your breakthrough into the music industry, do you remember the moment you realized you were a rising star in the field?
I don’t remember a specific moment when I realized I was a rising star. I’ve always felt confident in myself and my music and I try to focus on taking what I have and cultivating it and put it in front of people. However, I do remember a moment during all of my label meetings where I felt very grateful for seeing my dreams come true. I was at a dinner, went to the bathroom and cried for a bit. Happy tears.
From all the singles you’ve released so far, which one still makes you excited every time?
“Val!um” is a single I could listen to forever. It’s, in my opinion, my best song that’s out and is more emotional than anything I had done in the past – just better songwriting overall.
Who is the next artist you would like to collaborate with?
I’ve been listening to a lot of Baby Keem, The Japanese House, and Jeremy Zucker. Those are some artists I would love to collaborate with in the future.
Favorite moment from your career?
Every day. It’s a blessing to be doing what I love as a career.
Who were the people who influenced you the most from whom you were inspired?
Juice WRLD, The 1975, and Jeremy Zucker. A wide range of hip-hop to dream pop to rock.
What other things do you do besides making music?
I enjoy hanging out with friends and going off-roading or going somewhere beautiful on a drive. I also enjoy riding motorcycles and I really like dogs.
What excites you most about being an artist and performing around the world?
The people. I can’t wait to meet everyone.
What are your goals for the future?
I have many goals, but the main one is to be better every day and create my best possible art across my next releases as I build this refreshing world of vulnerability for people to enter through the music.
Please write a message to your fans.
This place wouldn’t be the same without you. I love you.
