A - Z Interviews: Brent Walsh

Share:

Brent Walsh celebrated the release of his sophomore EP ‘Are You Even There at All?’, by sharing the spirited video for third single ‘Moon Creep’. Inspired by a cappella act Pentatonix, ‘Moon Creep’ bursts into a full-on pop anthem as it brims with doo-wop vocals and layered harmonies. The video was a collaborative effort amongst friends, shot guerilla-style on the streets of Oakland. This proved to be a fun adventure, improvising last-minute concept and choreography changes to adapt to new locations. The chemistry and passion of those involved translates brilliantly into the clip, culminating with a full-on dance celebration as Walsh belts out “it makes me feel alive.” You can watch the video for ‘Moon Creep’ here and stream ‘Are You Even There at All?’ in full here. Now Walsh is here to take the A-Z interview, so we can find out more...

Deepest Lyrics One Of Your Songs Features:

Some days it feels like I’m talking to God..

Or are you even there at all?
