Today we’d like to introduce you to Jason Emaros.
Jason, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I was born in The Netherlands – I still live there – and ever since I was a boy I wanted to be a singer. So, it’s no coincidence that I started all kinds of music projects: from rock- and metal music to gospel/worship music to the pop/dance music that I create these days. I taught myself everything, from singing to playing instruments to creating music with audio software. In 2014 I started my current solo pop project ‘Emaros’. Besides creating my own songs, I started working with international pop singers and producers. In June this year I will do a few gigs in LA/Hollywood, because I would really like to get my project off the ground in that awesome city of angels, the center of the entertainment world.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I create electronic pop music and I do this all by myself: from composing, writing lyrics, recording and mixing to singing. Only the completion of the song – the so-called mastering – is done by another producer.
Like I said, my heart has always been in music, so this project is a logical thing for me to do. It’s a very strong passionate feeling. My music does not only serve as an escape and entertainment for myself and for others, but it’s also a message of liberty, love and expression: free yourself and love one another, let’s live in harmony and bliss.
Do you think conditions are generally improving for artists? What more can cities and communities do to improve conditions for artists?
Well, I think the conditions differ in each country. But I think in many countries it’s the same: it’s not easy to break through, earn a living with art and become famous. That’s just a fact. Even well-known singers, actors and other artists struggle sometimes to find work in their area. But I want to encourage artists by telling them that it’s not an option to quit. Because giving up is the same as denying yourself. You ARE the art. You ARE the passion. So, keep pushing through, don’t you dare give up!
What cities can do to support their artists, is to remain beware of the fact that it’s a hard road for many artists to keep going. Awareness is more important than helping an artist to get a gig or something. As long as we are aware of the need to support our artists and as long as we are aware of the fact that our society cannot live without art, we will be creative to help and support. Imagine a world without music, without entertainment: our society would be dead! We would not have an escape, we would be very poor in ways to express ourselves. We NEED the actors, we NEED the singers, we NEED the musicians, the sound engineers and everyone in the entertainment industry. Every good government and city knows this. Every media channel knows this. That’s why people like you from Voyage LA do a tremendous good job: you expose your local artists and you give them attention. So, thank you for that!
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
As far as LA is concerned, people can come to one of my gigs this June. The locations will be published on my Instagram account @emaros.la.
People can listen to my music by visiting my website Emarosmusic.com or by visiting my social media pages (/emarosmusic). They can support my work by connecting on social media and by buying my music in webstores.
