Interview with Marko Maric
Meet Marko Maric, a very interesting new artist from Belgrade who just won the last edition of our Best New Unsigned Artist competition!
1. Hi Marko! Can you tell us a little about you and why have you started to play music?
I live in Belgrade, Serbia and music is my only passion in my whole life. I write lyrics,play guitar,sing and compose rock or electro songs. I started to write lyrics when I was 13 years old and at that same time I learned to play guitar all by myself. The main reasons why I've started to play music we're emotions that I didn't know how to control. Problems with parents, problems with friends,big mistakes I've made, loneliness and difference and misunderstandings with almost everyone in my environment. Whether I'm feeling sad, lonely or happy I will find the way to express my emotions through the lyrics or instrumentals. I can't imagine my life,or anyones life this days without music. Life without music is boring!
2. How has the place you live influenced you and your music?
Well, the place I live in is poor and not so bright and shiny. I think almost the whole Serbia is poor,except politicians,directors and those, I don't want to say what. So, what I love to do is walk around listen to the stories of other people, look at their faces and then collect all their thoughts and emotions, combine them with mine and inspiration comes like magic. Really this environment is like made for artists.
3. What equipment do you use to produce your music?
I don't have some fancy equipments, really. For these instrumentals I use a program called FL Studio, and sometimes, when I earn some money I go in to studio and record some rock, or electro songs...
4. Who are your influences?
I really don't have any real influences for this type of music. Let's say my influences are the people around me. If you really want some artists then I will say Black Lab, Nickelback and Eminem, but I don't see them as my influences, they are just my favorite artists.
5. How do you think you differ from other artists?
Hahaha, I don't know,really, I don't know. Maybe because I do this type and style of music, which is really not popular and also weird to a lot of people, and I don't do it for money or just for me, I do it for the people around so that they can know that they are not alone.
6. Is there something you want to say to the people have voted for you in the Best New Unsigned Artist competition?
Yes, thank you all so much!!! I couldn't do this without you!!! Really, you are the best! See ya!
