Q & A: KING FABBS




PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF FOR US WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOU AND YOUR MUSIC AND TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.


I am King Fabbs, from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and I am a solo Pop Punk Artist! I officially made my debut as an artist on July 2nd, 2021 where I released my own 5 track EP. I’ve been in love with music ever since I was a kid, and I’ve been involved with different music programs over the years such as school band, and marching band. I was in a punk band in my high school days for a short bit as well. I always wanted to get back into a band but I decided the solo artist journey was a better fit for me.



TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR NEW ALBUM OR SINGLE?


I started writing my EP in January 2020, recorded it in September 2020, and released it July 2021. My EP is a reflection of who I am, I always write from the heart. I feel like a lot of artists usually release a single or a few singles before making an EP or album, but I want to give people a bigger impression of who I am and what I’m going to continue to sound like. Each track on the EP has it’s own meaning and I feel it has something that people can relate too and take a lot of value in. I hope the listeners can feel that when they hear it.




WHAT INSPIRED THE ALBUM OR SINGLE?


I get a ton of inspiration from all the artists that I listen too, and wanting to put myself out there as an artist gave me a lot of motivation because I have wanted to do this for a long time. I’ve always to write music that people can vibe with on a personal level because music can be that escape that people need. That’s what it has always been for me, and that got me inspired to write music that describes myself, what I feel, and what I want to write about. I called the EP “Your Safest Place” because I want to provide people with music that can help them “escape”, while also embracing pop punk music and keeping the music fun and bright.




CAN YOU SUM UP THE ALBUM IN A FEW WORDS?


“Your Safest Place” gives you music about personal motivation, finding the will to keep going when life gets hard, and music about the love people have for certain things and those special people we have in our lives.



WHAT RECORD CHANGED YOUR LIFE AND WHY?


Green Day’s American Idiot album changed me a lot. They were the first punk band I really listened too and that started to influence the music I was listening too. I loved it when I first heard that album, I just felt so connected to it. This album introduced me to the world of rock music and I absolutely love it here. I got judged a lot for liking rock music because I'm black. I was the black guy who was “not actually black” because of my taste in music. I eve
