Please Introduce yourself in less than 10 words…..

3Mind Blight: Multi Genre Award Winning Artist

Dorsten: I’m a National Recording Indie/Pop Singer-Songwriter.

What made you want to get into music?

3Mind Blight: When I was two I fell in love with the piano and all the sounds it could make and as I got older added on with all instruments I could find 

 

What’s the writing process?

3Mind Blight: It all depends on the song. I like to watch it like a video in my head and as the scenes unfold the words come to me.

 

What comes first lyrics or music?

3Mind Blight: Mostly it is both at the same time but I would say music and the lyrics after.

Dorsten: Music comes first. I believe all of my songs have always started with music. I first go to my guitar to make up something cool, then I put a melody over it. I then have a writing day for lyrics, and determine what the song is saying and what I want the song to be about. When I write with my brother we do it the same way.

 

What has been the best gig you’ve ever played and why?

Dorsten: My favourite show was last January at the Marquee Theatre here in Tempe, Arizona – several hundred peeps and all my friends and family were there. The energy was amazing – it was a blast!.

 

What was the last track you played on Spotify?

Dorsten: The last song I played on Spotify is “Wanderer” by “From Indian Lakes”.

3Mind Blight: Alice in Chains.

 

What other talents do you have?

3Mind Blight: Author, Poet, Art Design, and Producer

Dorsten: I love to paint – I always create my single covers myself.

 

If you could open for any artist who would it be?

Dorsten: I would love to open for “Hippo Campus”

 

What other bands do we need to be checking out right now?

Dorsten: An artist I’m loving right now is “Eleni Drake” . I love her song “Peaches”

3Mind Blight: BaYaT and Sophie Dorsten

 

How are you coping with lockdown?

Dorsten: I am doing pretty good with lockdown, I’m more of an introvert, and I find it easy to entertain myself as an artist, I am continually song writing and feel so creative. Don’t get me wrong there are days that I feel sick of being home, but I honestly think that as a musician I’ve used this time for improvement and experimenting.

 

How is lock down effecting the music scene?

3Mind Blight: It is taking away from the live feel of music and changes the landscape

 

What do you miss most about live gigs?

Dorsten: I miss the people. I miss playing in front of a live audience and getting crowd interactions. I miss seeing people in person. Performing over the internet is a great way to maintain contact with musician friends and fans, but performing live is what I knew most as a musician and it’s not the same performing in front of a screen.

 

What’s the scene like where you are from?

Dorsten: The music scene in Arizona is great; very supportive people. There are a lot of great venues to play at normally, they are all trying to keep it going with adding restaurants in them, but no big shows for a bit.

3Mind Night: Tulsa HAD a pretty good music scene

 

Talk us through the new track?

3Mind Blight: Reflections was a Collaboration song that I created with Sophie Dorsten. After making all of the music for it I envisioned a Female lead and Sophie had an amazing voice that fit perfect into the mix. It was a blast to co-write the song and as it progressed it took a life of its own.

Dorsten: It was so cool that 3Mind Blight asked me to join him on this song – he sent me some music and a thought on what it would be about and I wrote some lyrics. It kind of became this dark song about moving on. I love how it turned out.
