Bryan Sammis (La Bouquet/Olivver the Kid)

Welcome to another installment of Off The Record where the artists themselves tell stories, share experiences, and answer questions about the moments that matter. This time, Bryan Sammis, formerly of The Neighbourhood and currently of La Bouquet and Olivver The Kid, shares a clip about how finding who you are, how finding your purpose, can help you manage the harmful cycle of anxiety, depression, and this crazy fucking thing called life. Bryan had a breakthrough, catharsis moment when he woke up half-drunk in a widow’s attic in New Orleans, and that’s all I’m going to say about that. So without further ado, here is Off The Record with Bryan Sammis.

Yoste

Welcome to another installment of ‘Off The Record’ where the artists themselves speak about pivotal moments, share experiences, and answer questions about the things that matter most. This time, Yoste (@soundsofyoste), a producer and songwriter from Brisbane Australia, talks to us a bit about his approach to songwriting and applying emotion to the actual song structure. In his bio, Yoste writes “I’ve struggled for years with a severe sense of listlessness and general lack of purpose. I still do in fact. It’s something I now recognize in many of the people around me, both young and old. It’s damn fascinating to write about.” Well, I can say Yoste, you are damn fascinating to listen to as well, both your words and the music.
