Let’s read the interview with Jesse Neo , Musician, entrepreneur and founder of music marketplace Gemtracks.
1. Hello Jesse! Can you please tell us about you?
I am an Australian electronic producer, singer, songwriter and DJ. I have been musically trained since I was 7. However, it was electronic and pop music that drove me to start releasing my work. Besides being an indie artist, I have also worked as a songwriter for several YouTube channels and media companies
2. When did your interest in music starts? Please tell us more about founding Gemtracks.
I was exposed to classical music since I was young, but that didn’t really fuel my passion until I took an electronic music production class in 2016. I was amazed at the unique sounds that could be made. They were so groovy and somehow warming as well. Suddenly I decided I wanted to be an electronic artist.
Then after working for as a contracted songwriter, I realized that I wanted to create my own music brand where I anyone could buy and sell beats. Hence, that lead to the creation of Gemtracks.
3. Who Are Your Musical Influences?
Besides the classics such as Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi and Chopin, I am also a big fan of all the latest DJs in the world right now, such as David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Hardwell, Calvin Harris and Steve Aoki. I hope one day I can be as big as them.
4. With other musicians and artists available, what makes your music unique? How is your music different from others in the field?
I want to combine classical elements with modern vibes to give my songs a timeless feelings. I also do a lot of experimenting with different vocal effects. Lyrically, my songs are poetic as well and talks about everything from life, love to even the supernatural.
5. You are a Musician. On the other way you are an entrepreneur. How do you balance your career in both sectors as a musician and as an entrepreneur?
I think the advantage I have is that I studied both music and computer science in college. And with the world going through a digital revolution, I am lucky enough to combine both fields into one without much hassle. So typically speaking, by me working on Gemtracks is at the same time, working as a musician too.
6. Would you like to share some advice for others who see you as an inspirational artist and a successful entrepreneur?
Keep doing what you love. It may take years, but you will get there. Just don’t let life get in the way.
