An inside look at Boston artist Klark Songs
Who are you, where are you from and what are you doing?
My name is Klark Songs, I’m from Boston and decided to change the idea of what it means to be a mainstream music artist. I do songs in all popular genres and constantly discover new styles to innovate.
Have you always had a passion for music?
I started out as an opera singer and toured the world for a few years when I was in college. After my voice changed, things slowed down a bit until I got to college, and that’s when my life changed forever. I had a recording facility, started writing my own songs, and my dreams of becoming an opera singer took an unexpected turn on the path to more mainstream music. I have been doing this for less than a year and have already started to gain a loyal following of people who are willing to go above and beyond to support me. Music is more than a passion for me, it’s the goal of my whole life.
How has your musical journey shaped what you do now?
Since I started singing opera, it made the transition to mainstream music a lot easier for me. Part of the reason I decided to make this drastic change in my life is that I realized that while I love opera, it is not a very accessible art form for most. people. Having a background in classical music has given me a huge advantage due to the difficulty of every aspect of it. I apply and adapt much of what I have learned from my past experience to the music I am writing now. My training in classical music gives my current songs a very refined and unique sound that I am dying to be able to share with the world.
What advice would you give to other aspiring musicians?
I’m still pretty young and new to all of this, so I don’t feel like I can speak on this as much as someone with more experience in the game. But what I will say is that if there’s something I’ve learned, it’s that you won’t get anywhere if you don’t invest time and money in your music. Unless you just exploded overnight. No matter how good you are or how good you think you are, you need to have a solid business plan in terms of what you’re going to do with your music and how you’re going to present it to the outside world. Good marketing and high quality content will go a long way.
