Q: “LUVPACK” is such a great EP that explores different elements and sides to being in love. What inspired you to take this angle on your EP?
KAI BLU: With “LUVPACK” I initially wanted to tell a complete love story, but I couldn’t bring myself to follow the rules. Love is sporadic, filled with ups, downs, lefts, and rights. I wanted it to be open and honest.
Q: Which song on the “LUVPACK” do you feel the most connected to?
KAI BLU: The song I am most connected to has to be “Comfortable”. This was the first song I made before “LUVPACK” was even a thought. It came from a personal experience in that moment.I feel its very raw and anyone who has been in a relationship could relate to feeling their significant other getting comfortable within the relationship where the effort begins to lack.
Q: What led you on the path to becoming an artist?
KAI BLU: I was always around music from a young age. My parents are both from the caribbean so my dad had a reggae/soca band. He would have late night band practices and I would sit in the room and just fall in love with all the sounds around me. I would watch my dad play the keys and copy him. I soon picked up the guitar after I fell in love with guitar hero and rock music. As I grew up music became a saving grace when I had nobody to talk too. I was a quiet, deal with it on my own type of kid so this is how I expressed myself.
Q: If you could collaborate with anyone, who would it be and why?
KAI BLU: I don’t think its fair for me to answer this question at all because I admire so many artists. If I had to choose either Frank Ocean or The Weeknd. They have had a tremendous effect on me as an artist and person. The open, honesty of who they are inspired me and always got me through hard times.
Q: If you could describe “LUVPACK” in three words, what would they be?
KAI BLU: Describing “LUVPACK” in only three words all I really can say is… ONLY THE BEGINNING
Q: What advice do you have for aspiring artists?
KAI BLU: Something I wish someone told me before I began this journey as an artist is to put your pride aside, enjoy the journey please do not rush it, and GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY !!!
