SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Luxley


theaussieword.com’s special interview with US artist Luxley.

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music? It started when I moved back to New Orleans from Nashville in 2011.  I started writing songs under the alias Mason Briggs while I was in medical school.  My friend (now manager), Sky McElroy, decided to help me book gigs around New Orleans while I was still maturing as a solo-artist.  I then started Luxley, and Sky came-on as my manager.12356885_966840356728603_2678592719995419611_o The piano was the first instrument that got me interested in music when I was 10 or 11.  I learned a lot of piano by ear when I was a child.  I quickly moved to writing amateur songs on guitar afterwards.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? I would say music and novelty are the biggest motivating factors.  I like nothing more than working-off of new ideas, new music, or new materials.

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist? Inspire people to find their passion and write as many songs as possible.  Maybe change a few lives in the process.

Success, what is the secret to it? Focus, discipline, and creativity

What has been your biggest career highlight so far? Touring with Bombay Bicycle Club in 2014. Releasing my debut EP.

Which stars of the music industry do you find inspiring? Prince, Disclosure, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Ed Macfarlane. Continue reading “SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Luxley”
