Serbian-born Artist, sketchmesome, is a musician who is revolutionizing the way we view the entertainment industry today. Over the course of his career, sketchmesome has done a song with major artist Nessly. He’s also produced, recorded and mixed two personal albums and three albums from other artists.
Recently, I got the opportunity to interview him and discuss topics such as his past, his source of inspiration, and the obstacles he has faced so far.
He was also keen to share some words of advice for anyone striving to achieve success in life. Let’s have a look, shall we;
So, can you tell me a little about yourself and how you came to be the man you are today?
Well, I was born in Belgrade, Serbia, and moved to Switzerland at the age of 1. I lived there for about 20 years and then moved to London for university where I pursued business and music.
I’ve always been passionate about music, and to be honest, I’ve been rapping my whole life. But as soon as I moved to London, I decided to start recording and actually making it. I slowly transitioned as the years went by from rapping to more melodic singing.
I fully produce my beats, record them in my own studio and mix/master everything all by myself, including the graphic design for the album cover. I would say my brand constantly changed but my style would be emotional and powerful singing over bouncy and hard-hitting 808’s.
I can pretty much sing on any beat or genre but still maintain my own unique sound. I always believed that genre shouldn’t exist and that it should just be music as a whole.
Where do you get the inspiration to create such a unique music style?
That would mostly be my love for music. I am really passionate and I believe that if you want to do something, you can, if you set your mind to it.
I always thought there was a lack of a certain sound in the music industry and therefore I create music that I would listen to. I also always like to try a lot of things in life and therefore, in the beginning, I guess I was trying out “making music” which slowly turned into a passion of mine.
In what ways has music changed your life?
It showed me even more that I can pretty much do anything I want to in life if I truly put in the work. I also love the fact that I have inspired a lot of people with my music, and that was one of my biggest goals in life. Overall, music has given me a purpose and a journey to follow, as before I wasn’t sure what I want to do in life.
The Music industry is an unforgiving one! What obstacles have you faced so far and how did you overcome them?
When making music, you need to learn to take breaks, especially if you do everything yourself. That’s something I have a hard time with, as I know that no one will do the work for me, and I pretty much just count on myself. The problem is when you don’t take breaks, you start to overthink and the quality decreases.
I also learned that I shouldn’t strive to sound like someone else or even compare myself to anyone else, and I should just focus on the music. Many times, I was trying different styles and genres of other artists and this almost gave me a block which I couldn’t get past until I fully went back to doing me.
What is your best advice for someone who wants to grow in any area of their life?
You can pretty much do anything you want in life as long as you fully set your mind to it. Do all the research, learn from the people that actually do it if possible.
The most obvious advice would be to trust yourself and really not listen to anyone, if you plan on being successful in something then hate comes along, and you really need to block it out and just do you.
