Aloe Blacc

Interview by: Samantha Toy

Out of all of your songs, which song would represent you at this particular stage of your career?

I would say, “HERE TODAY” is most representative of my career right now. In that song, I reflect on where I’ve come from and the state of mind you need as an artist to persevere in a business that can be turbulent.

You’re also going to be featured on a new season of Artbound Presents: Studio A as part of its “Summer of the Environment.” How was it being a part of their show?

I appreciated the invite to be part of the show. It gave me a chance to share a softer side of my artistry. A couple of the songs I performed were lullabies inspired by fatherhood and others were acoustic songs that I have been eager to perform.

What can we, the fans, expect in the future from you? Any upcoming tours, or musical collaborations?

I have been recording new songs for my next release.  This time around I am collaborating with other lyricists whereas in the past I generally wrote all the lyrics myself.  I’m sure I will tour as soon as I release a new album, but I will continue to do shows here and there in between recording sessions.


You can watch ARTBOUND PRESENTS STUDIO A on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at 10 pm PT on KCET in Southern California and on Link TV nationwide (DirecTV 375 and DISH network 9410) beginning September 19 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. All episodes will also be streamed online launching August 22 at:
