Ernesto Gaita is Set to Take the Music Industry By Storm

Interview With Ernesto Gaita


Tell us About Your Background and Getting to Where You are Today?

Same as any kid I guess.I didn’t have a very stable childhood growing up. My parents were good people but poor. So most of my time I was by myself trying to stay out of trouble. On my block, old dudes would sit on the sidewalk in lawn chairs on nice days and they’d always have an old radio playing cassettes. Since I had no one, these old dudes sort of became my family and I just did what they did. Played cards, talked about girls, and most of all just listened to the same cassette tapes on repeat. I owe a lot to these guys, they taught me how to be a man, how to talk to girls, and always negged me when I was screwing around and set me straight.

What Does a Day Inside Your Shoes Look Like?

Well, I wear boots lol, Brown leather specifically. Size 10.5. A day inside my shoes looks like getting up around 8, kiss my girl, get ready for the day. Virtual team meeting usually at 9 for my marketing biz, then I focus on clients and networking the rest of the day. By about 8pm my biz day is done and I try and head to the studio as much as I can and start mixing.

What is the Most Challenging Thing You Have Overcome in Your Life?

That’s tough, I don’t like to think I’ve had “challenges” because everyone does. That’s life. But I guess I’d have to say overcoming fear of rejection. While I became pretty good at picking up any instrument at a young age, sharing my music with my friends was terrifying. Once I signed up for a talent show when I was 11 and that was the scariest thing I’ve ever done. Get on stage in front of my whole school and most of my neighborhood to play Little Walter’s “My Girl”In retrospect, I’m glad I did it. But man, I was bad lol.

What do You Want People to Take Away After Listening to Your Music?

I want people to feel like they’ve been put into a trance-like state where they’re able to think on a deep level and sort out whatever is going on in their lives. Thats was lo-fi is for me, it occupies my mind in a way that makes it easy for me to deal with the big issues.
