Today we’d like to introduce you to Abe Alberts.
So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I fell in love with music production after discovering GarageBand on my iPad freshman year of college. It only took a couple of months before I had a studio set-up with everything I needed to make some bedroom hits. After teaching myself a bunch of basic music theory and taking inspiration from some of my favorite artists, I began songwriting and developing a style that’s unique to me. I would eventually release two EPs and a single under the artist name Homeworld and amass a modest 120k streams in a few months. During my time growing my skills as an artist, I met some very talented and connected people that have not only helped me grow as an artist but inspired me to work even harder, and craft music and an identity unique to me and unlike any other. I’m currently working on a debut EP for my new persona, abe.wav, set to be coming out soon.
Has it been a smooth road?
Learning music isn’t that difficult, but being good at it takes a lot of effort and hard work. One of the biggest struggles was getting to the point where I was confident enough to make my first release. Every release after came along with the stress of meeting higher expectations that only I was setting for myself. Letting the world listen to your art is tough, you really have to put yourself out there, especially when that music has a lot of personal meaning.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
As an artist and producer, I offer time in my studio for recording, mixing, and mastering. I spend most of my time working on my own projects, though. As a businessman, I work with my close friend Christian Anderson as a founder of Lost Boy Entertainment Co. Over there, we handle press, PR, marketing, promo, and more for musicians, entrepreneurs, etc. Currently, I take on the roles of Lead Writer and Creative Director for the company.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
LA is a perfect place to grow as an artist and to grow Lost Boy Entertainment.
