Enter the dark alt pop world of Demi the Daredevil
PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF FOR US WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOU AND YOUR MUSIC AND TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.
Hi. I’m Jeff Azar and I’m just a neurotic musician who loves to be alone and at the same connect on a deep level with people who are like me. I make dark Alt Pop music with a fantasy twist to it.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR NEW ALBUM OR SINGLE?
The latest EP released in October is called Magic+Accidents. The title comes from that gap between a darker practical reality, and a more idealistic world of possibility.
WHAT INSPIRED THE ALBUM OR SINGLE?
The need to get out of bad habits I think. I felt like I was falling into my destructive underworld and needed to fight my way out.
CAN YOU SUM UP THE ALBUM IN A FEW WORDS?
Don’t let the darkness overtake you and beat you into submission.
WHAT RECORD CHANGED YOUR LIFE AND WHY?
There’s a lot but I’ll go with American Idiot by Green Day.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE MUSIC VIDEO FILMED BY YOUR BAND OR ANOTHER ARTIST?
Maybe “Fat” by Weird Al.
WHAT WOULD WE FIND YOU DOING WHEN YOU'RE NOT MAKING MUSIC?
Daydreaming. Reading. Watching birds. Movies. Riding a bike. Playing video games when I can. Journaling.
DO YOU GET NERVOUS PERFORMING LIVE, IF SO HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH THAT?
Yes! I tell myself the point is to be vulnerable and to express something that we all have in us.
HOW DID YOU FORM THE BAND?
I started off as the drummer. A guy I played tennis with introduced me to Jovan the singer songwriter and Marc the guitarist. They played fast music and I could play drums fast.
HOW DO YOU WRITE? - DO YOU HAVE A KEY SONGWRITER, OR DO YOU ALL WORK TOGETHER?
I finally got to a point where I can make all the parts. I hear the whole song and it just turned out to where it’s best for me to make all the parts work together and not rely on the magic some bands get by playing with each other in a room.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Seeing other bands have what I’ve always wanted. Honestly it’s envy. I’ll go straight to work when I know that my purpose or gift or potential hasn’t been fully used.
WHAT IS NEXT?
There’s a choose your own track album coming out soon here… it’s called University Series and is about my time going to college.
