Lade is 26 year old Ethan Edenburg, artist/producer living in LA. The Flood EP will be released in Jan 2015. Hilly Dilly said “With a debut like “Asleep”, all that’s needed to kick off interest for the artist is a push of the play button, and with what atmospheric, reverb-heavy, percussion-infused, and seductive, pad-laden electronic he uses, he allows his velvety, Fyfe-esque vocal tone to shine.”
Could you tell us a bit about your musical background? What inspired you to begin creating and performing in the first place?
Lade: When I was 10 I began writing songs while walking around school. I didn’t know where they came from but the melodies would just pop out. This inspired to begin learning guitar so I could flush out these ideas. I started performing at 14 with a band I put together. I knew I would create and perform music for the rest of my life. For college I attended Berklee College of Music where I majored in Electronic Production.
What is it like living Los Angeles, California? What has been your experience with the music scenes of Los Angeles?
What life experiences and events led to the writing and recording of your EP “The Flood”? What led you to release ‘Asleep’ as the single? Could you tell us about each featured track?
The songs I’ve been writing for the past year or two all stem from various emotions. Sometimes its a deep disappointment in humanity, or simply my attempt to deal with things which are out of my control, such as death or time. Asleep is a warning and a mirror for society. I’m not sure we’re aware of the horrible things we do and say.
How was the visual presentation of “The Flood” and ‘Asleep’ decided on and created?
Visual Artist Niki Sylvia designed the artwork. The sensation of being lost comes through in the art. She nailed the feeling of wondering through life’s uncertainties while being ok with whatever happens.
Your new EP will be released in January, correct? Aside from that, what else does the new year hold in store for Lade?
January is right! The new year shall bring many live shows and more releases!
