We speak with none other than Andreas Moe himself in this exclusive.

What are four words you would use to describe your music?

Guitar-driven folk-pop.

How does a song come together for you? What is the songwriting process?

It almost all of the time starts with a guitar part, like a riff or some chords that inspires me to write melody and lyrics. Then the embryo normally sits as a voice memo on my phone for what too long before I finish it.

What was the first album/CD you ever bought?

Michael Jackson – History: Past, Present and Future

What album do you know every word to?

Joni Mitchell – Blue

Share some advice for other bands/artists creating original music?

Make sure you enjoy what you’re doing, stay true to yourself and always try to write music you know you’ll like even after many years.

What is the most memorable response you have had to your music?

I remember having a standing ovation when I played the O2 in London supporting John Mayer. That was amazing!

If you could create your own radio show, what kind of music would you feature and why?

I would feature unsigned acts! Because I know there are so many great artists out there who don’t get the chance to be heard.

Tell us about your upcoming releases?

First out is a song called ‘Holding On’. It’s a guitar-driven song with a lot of energy about breaking free from things we know aren’t good for us. Throughout the year I will release so much music resulting in an album!

One last nugget of info you can’t wait to share with your fans?

Hang in there! I can’t wait to meet you all in person at a concert when this is all over!
