Music Talks: Soltree

Solomon Bagley wrote his first song at the age of four, evidently pop-inspired, and composed of a melody of  "na na na's."

 

Born on Waiheke Island, he recounts growing up surrounded by music. At seven, he was whisked to Australia's Uluru, where his father worked as a tour guide. He made his first endeavour into commercial music by singing on the tour bus (skipping school in the process), afterwards, a young gentleman holding the door open for tourists, quietly expecting a tip.

 

 

At 16, one of his teachers, who Solomon dubs as 'inspirational', gave him an insight into real song structure. Here, he began taking music seriously. By 18, he was experimenting sonically, with involvement in numerous bands, until finding his shtick with British pop-punk.

 

Then, in 2012, whilst studying Audio Engineering, Solomon learnt how to produce - and immediately fell in love with R&B and Trip Hop.

Soltree is a culmination of all of these things, a moniker Solomon's been using for three months to release his #chillwave #feels beats to an adoring, growing audience on Soundcloud.

 

Inspiration is gathered from everyday life. The trademark fuzzy lyrics, for those who can decipher them, "are either a reflection, or an observation."

 

As for the future? We'll keep you posted.

    First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions
    or tips? Thanks!

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Finding the time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I
    say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t manage to get
    nearly anything done.
