Meet William, a 22-year-old Spotify playlist curator from New Jersey.
“I am a Mechanical Engineering student at Drexel University with a minor in music theory and composition. I am also the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for a dynamic art-rock band known as Oblivion Her Majesty.”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
I’m not exactly sure yet. I probably won’t be able to answer this question before I die.
What is the most annoying song in the world?
A majority of the music I listen to is “annoying” to a lot of people so this probably isn’t my place to speak lol.
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
My first thought was to say they’re equal, but I would be wrong. Lyrics and poetry are important but music is the amplification behind the meaning. The delivery of a song is much more important in communicating a meaning than lyrics.
No favorite artist because artists change with time. My favorite album is "The Stage" by Avenged Sevenfold.
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be?
Billie Eilish. I’m very fascinated with “WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?”. The imagery and ideas resonate very well with my own artistry. I’d love to discuss some of my artistic concepts and outlooks on life with her.
Muse. They have been the greatest influence on my artistry during its early stages. I still aspire to this day to reach their level of production, complexity, and talent on the stage and in the recording booth.
