Starting off your long weekend with an interview from LA based musical prodigy georgie. You may have caught my post about him earlier in the week containing his inventive and hilarious music video for "Tastes Like Chocolate" that established his musical image, and his ability to weave humor and inject a certain blend of satire that you don't see combined with music today. Geordie. was nice enough to devote some time out of his busy schedule to do a quick interview as we get to know more about him, his early experiences with music, what it was like to shoot his first music video, and his hopes for the future. Here is the transcript from our chat:
Give us your name and where you're based?
Geordie Kieffer, Los Angeles.
Take behind your early years and how you initially became interested in music?
Ah the years of early, my father is a composer and singe-songwriter. My brother, Ian Kieffer (he's the real genius) and I grew up underneath my dad's Steinway singing and listening to him play. I guess that's how it started, I guess it never stopped.
What genre would you classify your music under?
I call it Agro-Pop.
That's me trying to be interesting.
How would you describe your music to those who aren't familiar with you?
The music is funky, mean, flamboyant, and sexual if I had to give a few.
Where do you usually perform out in LA and how has the reception been with your live shows?
No performances as of yet. We are moving to get some lined up ASAP.
Take us behind the song "Tastes Like Chocolate" and what the song is all about?
The song is about a fire breather. Absolute bad chick stunner who I fell for years back. She's a wonderful person and I really had no choice with regards to writing the song. Easiest song I've ever written. I blacked out and I woke up with a cool idea, that never happens. It was a fucking treat.
In your spare time away from making music, what can we find you doing on your days off?
I'm a big time fisherman, love it. Fished all over the world. Usually nowadays I'm at Echo Park Lake on Sunday's smoking a Cuban and catching bass. I'm an actor too uggggh.
What's coming up next, any tours or a full length effort in the works?
Always working on new music. Shows are in the works, same with the EP.
How can people find out more info about your music?

Thanks once again to geordie. for being so awesome in doing this interview. He may seem a little unusual at first and slightly eccentric, but that's all part of his charm and his unique ability to connect with the audience on a more personal level. It's definitely worthy of your time to check out his music at the aforementioned links above, and definitely consider cranking one of his tunes at your Memorial Day BBQ's this weekend!
