Tim Spriggs might be a new name to our readers, but with his debut EP, he shows he is far from new to music. We chat to the Australian creative about his beginnings, his EP and what’s to come.
When did you first start making music and what led you there?
I don’t think there was a specific time. I grew up around a lot of music, my dad was always listening to records and took me to concerts. My mums side of the family are all into music, she bought me a few cheap classical guitars when I was young that somehow always ended up in pieces on the floor.
Tell us about your new EP Something Else. What is the story behind it? What inspired it?
It’s basically a toned down mix of the different styles of music I like. There’s no real theme, it’s just an extension of who I am and where I was when I wrote the songs. As an introvert that mostly keeps to themselves, it’s basically me expressing myself.
What do you love about making music?
I like the idea of creating, when you create something your effort is basically there forever. Things like performances for the most part, are momentary. They disappear with the people that hold the memory. Music is a great form of expression and a way to tell your story, to move people.
How would you describe your sound and how did you come to it?
Musically I’m influenced by everything, I’ll listen to anything from Rod Stewart to Meshuggah. I started off being into harder hitting music, now I’m trying to accomplish the same thing but emotionally rather than sonically. I’d like to do something that’s a bit more timeless, overall you could say it’s rock/pop music with small hints of everything.
Now that you’ve kicked off your musical journey, what can we expect in the future?
I’m working on an album, it’s all written and I’m in the middle of recording it. I’m preparing for the performance side of things, when I get there the people that see me will have a good amount of music to check out.
What is the single/album and when/where can we find it?
The music video for the title track will be out in the coming weeks. You can find the EP on all the main online outlets or head to my website for links.
