seezenz Interview

A brand new Music Mondays interview is live with a rising talent known as seezenz. We got the chance to speak with this extremely talented individual about a variety of topics you can’t miss out on in this exclusive MM article.


Zomb: So let’s start from the beginning, who is seezenz? Where are you from and how old are you?

seezenz: I'm not sure who seezenz is exactly. Seezenz  is really just how I am feeling if that makes sense, haha. Anything you hear from seezenz is or was how I felt in that very moment. I am from West Virginia, and I am 19 years old.

Zomb: Very well said. So you’re 19 from West Virginia, what was growing up like for you? More specifically, what was it like growing up in West Virginia?

seezenz: Thank you. Honestly, it sucked. I hated growing up in West Virginia. But that's where it all started so I always appreciate it.

Zomb: Absolutely understandable, always gonna have that hometown love/hate. What kind of music did you listen to early on? Who were some of your favorite artists growing up?

seezenz: I listened to like emo, pop punk, and metal bands. Some of the names were asking Alexandria, Greeley Estates, chevelle, three days grace, Yellowcard, and Linkin park. Korn, deftones, and slipknot too.

Zomb: All such staples in those respective sounds if we’re being honest. When did you first start creating your own music? Around what age did you first create a song?

seezenz: I created my first song around like age 13

Zomb: Tell us a little bit about what inspired you to start creating and how long was it until you started taking music seriously. What was that like for you early on? 

seezenz: It was the bands that inspired me to get into music, i didn't take it very seriously until I was like 16. It was really cool. The old Soundcloud days were great. I was glad to be apart of it.

Zomb: So despite being still in your teen years you’ve definitely made a lot of strides throughout your early career, even just continuing to drop music early on is very admirable. What was the turning point of when you started to take creativity seriously? Was there a certain moment or project that made you realize you wanted this to be full time?

seezenz: So the second I found lil peep was the moment I realized music is what I Wana do. His music made me feel something. And I wanted to keep getting that feeling, so I tried to do it myself.

Zomb: Most definitely a very specific feeling, many artists will definitely know what you’re referring to one hundred percent. So you’re 19 now and you’ve been creating since you were about 13, how long does it take you to create a song these days? What is your creative process like in 2023?

seezenz: It depends on my mood at the time. I make everything based off my mood, it could take 10 to 30 minutes or even a few hours

Zomb: Sometimes it’s definitely a case by case basis, what are some of your favorite tracks you’ve created or been a part of? Can be released or unreleased.

seezenz: Great question actually. I always think about that. But I think my favorite songs usually are whatever I'm making at that moment. But my favorite song I've ever created cause it's personal would be "my bathroom floor is my bed" it's just a story that cuts you deep

Zomb: Everyone has their reasons and I’m glad you can find some comfort in certain tracks. What are some of your plans for spring and the rest of 2023?

seezenz: I plan to maybe play a show in nyc this summer so that's fun, not much going on besides a few shows. I Wana work on putting out lots and lots of music too tho. But I Wanna spend a lot of time creating rather than posting my music. I Wanna save up a bunch of songs!!! And just drop consistently

Zomb: Always ready for the live performances and honestly getting a backlog/library built up is probably one of the best things you can do so that’s definitely exciting. What is your overall vision and goal with music? Do you have any specific milestones or bigger goals you want to hit with your career?

seezenz: My vision is definitely spreading positive energy through everyone. Life is too short to wake up sad and ride that out through the day or weeks after. I want people to feel me when I speak on a song. I want them to know exactly how I feel in that moment. But most importantly, I want people to know that I'm here for them and they aren't alone. Honestly my biggest goal is signing a good deal by 2024.

Zomb: Such a good message, it’s really all about the long lasting effects. Who are some artists you’d like to work with in the future? Can be bigger or smaller artists.

seezenz: I would love to work with rouri404, erisu, aldn, and teenage disaster! I would also love to make music with twenty one pilots, saint asonia, chevelle, knuckle puck, and burden of a day.

Zomb: Such a good mix right there honestly, any one of those could be a ten. Creativity aside for a moment, what are some things that keep you grounded when you aren’t creating? What keeps you sane outside of art?

seezenz: Honestly I play a lot of video games and watch movies and shows. I gather lots of inspiration to create when I'm not creating. I'm always thinking about art 24/7. I also try to produce beats a bit because that's always fun.

Zomb: Consuming other content to keep your creative juices fueled is such a key to everything honestly. One of my last questions for you is who are your top 5 favorite artists of all time? In any order.

seezenz: My top 5 is definitely lil peep, chevelle, saosin, zillakami, and sewerperson

Zomb: Such a strong 5, the zillakami one definitely is surprising shouts out city morgue. Do you have any last words of motivation or shout outs before we sign off? The floor is yours.

seezenz: First of all shout out music mondays and every single soul who shows support! Ya'll mean so much to me :) Keep your heads up and keep up the good work.

Zomb: Much love my friend it was a pleasure to sit down with you, we’ll be doing it again very soon!
