Tim Spriggs is gracing us with 'Something Else'

When did you first start making music and what led you there? I don't think there was a specific time. I grew up around a lot of music; my dad was always listening to records and took me to concerts. My mum’s side of the family are all into music, she bought me a few cheap classical guitars when I was young that somehow always ended up in pieces on the floor.

Tell us about your new EP Something Else. What is the story behind it? What inspired it? There’s no real theme, it's just an extension of who I am and where I was when I wrote the songs. As an introvert that mostly keeps to themselves, it's basically me expressing myself.

What do you love about making music? I like the idea of creating because when you create something your effort is basically there forever. Things like performances are momentary for the most part; they disappear with the people that hold the memory.

How would you describe your sound and how did you come to it? I'm influenced by everything; I'll listen to anything from Rod Stewart to Meshuggah. I started off being into harder hitting music, now I'm trying to accomplish the same thing but emotionally rather than sonically.

Now that you’ve kicked off your musical journey, what can we expect in the future? I'm working on an album, it's all written and I'm in the middle of recording it and I'm preparing for the performance side of things.

You can find Tim Spriggs’ EP Something Else on all major platforms. Keep an eye out for the title track’s music video dropping in the coming weeks.
