Getting to know the talented musical artist Talon David!
Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I’m located in Nashville, TN, now and grew up just thirty minutes north in White House, TN.
Who has been your greatest influence?
My parents hands down. My mom had us listening to golden age musical theatre and Cindi Lauper while Dad taught us to appreciate Journey, the Beatles, and Elvis. You’d think they’d clash, but these genres lived harmoniously in our household. We just appreciate good music, and I feel like all these styles have an impact on my music now.
What is your latest and greatest?
(Does this mean latest and greatest influence? Let me know if I answered it wrong haha) Lately I’ve become super interested in Jacob Collier’s whole discography and his crazy genius brain. He’s opened my eyes to new harmonic and production techniques. I’ve been able to produce and mix my last few releases because of his tips, which is super empowering.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
I’m looking forward to graduating college!! The assignments and tests can be a bit distracting when I want to get some recording or writing done lol. I’m looking forward to just focusing on music for a time.
What would you say to your younger self if you could?
Don’t get frustrated that you aren’t moving/improving as fast as you think you should. It’ll happen before you know it, and you’ll be surprised at how far you’ve come.
On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you?
With things that are important to me, 10 right out the gate. It’s hard for me to stop doing something when I get focused on it, but it stresses me out if I think about something too intently for too long. I’m trying to have a healthy balance of drive and rest—mental health is important apparently lol.
How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success?
Hmm. I think success is a state of mind; you’ve got to live your life, run your business like it’s already successful. Then, when the “luck” befalls you, you’ll be ready to handle it. So does “luck” bring success, I don’t think so—I think your attitude does.
