Hey there blog readers!!! Today marks our first guest at The Whole Shebang Site and hopefully the first of many! I am beyond pleased to introduce you to my brother, and fantastic musician, Shine Delphi. Now that I in Delphi is long like Pie, which I love. Pull up a chair, get comfy and get to know Shine and his music. Let’s give him a big round of Hi and how are you 🙂
First off, how would you describe your sound?
What inspires you to write music?
I never do the same thing. Sometimes the words come first, but I would have to say I’m more partial to the songs where the words came after the music. The words just seem to fit nicer when I just start singing to a piece of music I’m writing. It causes me to flow my ideas instead of sitting and thinking hard about what I want to say, I just say it. But I have had success with both forms.
Who would you consider an influence on your music?
I feel as if I am influenced by everyone. When I listen to any song I feel influenced by it. Sometimes songs influence me to not want to write a song like that (hahaha) but most of the time even in songs that aren’t my cup of tea, I can find something about it that I like. Maybe they modulated to a different key or maybe the lyrics are very deep or maybe it’s just really damn catchy and I can’t get it out of my head!!! Even people who aren’t musical influence my music, teachers, friends, the old man on the bus who talks to himself. I’m always listening and watching, therefore, I feel as if I’m influenced by it all.
Hmmmm quirky??? I fall asleep with me head at the top of the bed, but when I wake up I’m on the roof in a penguin hat and frilly laced boxers. Is that quirky enough? (Misty here: I can totally vouch that this is true and it is quirky! LOL!)
What’s next for you and when can I expect a new CD?
I’m currently recording my new CD and I hope to release it by April. I’ve been putting up little tasters as I record it, though, so you can expect some more new songs to hit the airwaves before the actual release :)))))
