Meet Saticöy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Saticöy.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Jaron, Jonny, and I (Derek) all met back in college where we studied audio engineering and music production. Outside of our studies, we found our musical chemistry playing in a jam band called Waivada. Playing in Waivada was some of the most fun we’ve ever had, but more importantly, it made us comfortable as collaborators. None of us are afraid to tell the others if an idea isn’t working, which is essential in a creative career path where most people just smile and nod. Feelings don’t get in the way of the music in Saticöy. At the end of the day, we just want to serve the song.

Please tell us about your art.
One thing that continues to inspire us is the realization of just how little time we have. We’ve all worked day jobs that tend to leave us creatively fatigued, but we know if we don’t take advantage of our free time productively, that we will never truly progress. The Alt-pop/Soul inspired sound you hear in our music came after a long incubation period. We didn’t want to just release the first ideas that came to us, we wanted to find a sound that really resonates not only with us as musicians, but also with the listeners. We’re not out to make music just for ourselves.

With that in mind, we wanted Saticöy to be more than just a band. We wanted the music to constantly refresh itself with a broad range of styles, features, and collaborations. So we decided to approach Saticöy as a Collective. Every person who has a hand in building the content we release is considered a member of Saticöy.

Choosing a creative or artistic path comes with many financial challenges. Any advice for those struggling to focus on their artwork due to financial concerns?
Nobody should expect to make millions off selling their music, but there are ways to make a living. Lately, we’ve been writing and producing music for sync in commercial/film/tv, etc. We’re fortunate enough to have found a solid client that brings us regular work, and thats really the secret. You just need to build something of quality that you are proud of and put it out to the world. Then it’s just a matter of keeping yourself open to opportunities. People will hear about the quality of music you’re producing and come to you.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
You can find our content on Spotify (https://spoti.fi/2IKsj56). The best place to keep up to date with us is on Instagram (@saticoy_).
