Q: Where are you from?
A: Sydney, Australia
Q: Describe your sound:
A: My music is very eclectic. Although mostly leaning towards Pop AC. It’s like Michael Buble meets Air Supply but my latest album “Metamorphosis” is totally different with my foray into cutting edge pop and EDM.
Q:Tell us about your latest project:
A: Metamorphosis is a mixure of having fun but also kind of being philosophical about things. Delivered in cutting edge Pop sound and EDM. There’s even Gregorian chant and rap combined together in the song “Love Is”. Some might say it sounds crazy but this is my art and unique style.
Q: Who inspires you?
A: I have so many influences and inspiration from many different artists from different genres of music. From Jazz to Pop to Rock to World music. But for this particular album release, I have to say Madonna. I have respect and admiration for her, her work ethics and her creativity…
Q: How did you get into music?
A: I’ve always loved music since I was little and I was very involved with church music when I was younger. But not until the last few years that I do this seriously as a career, especially after becoming legally blind.
Q: Where do you see your career in 5 years?
A: I cannot predict the future but I am hopeful that more and more people will discover my music and artistry by then and hopefully get some recognition for my hard work all these years.
Q: Where can we check out your sounds?
A: You can find me on Spotify of course but you can just go to my website: http://www.andrewfarstar.com and you will find all necessary info and links there.
Q:Tell us something about yourself that the people need to know:
A: Music helps me to cope with blindness and losing my loved ones over the years. Some of my family members and friends died of cancer in the recent years. Life is too short but I am alive right now and I should make the most of it.
Sometimes I get frustrated with the challenges I have to face each day. For example, I will spend 4 to 5 times longer than sighted people to do some tasks. Although I get help a lot from others but big part of the work I virtually do them myself. But I will do my
best and I hope people can appreciate my efforts and hard work.
