Happy: What inspired you to create a song about self-love and the battle of heartbreak?

Syfr: So I’m on a self healing journey right now for so long I’ve taking care of people spiritual and yet about myself or if I’m being honest to scared to heal myself. I was used to feeling a certain way about myself and didn’t want to change it. But like I said I’m in a different head space now.

Happy: How did you approach the production and composition of “Scars” to achieve its emotional impact?

Syfr: I tend to listen to the track and see what it evokes from me. The chorus was the first thing to pop up in my head everything else followed. As far as emotional impact I wrote how I felt and I know there are folks who have or feel that same way.

Happy: Your lyricism on “Scars” is quite powerful and emotive. How did you develop your songwriting skills?

Syfr: I honestly wouldn’t give my self that much credit I feel like I have a lot more room for growth lyrically wise. But I’ve been writing music from a young age so that has helped me get this far.

Happy: Could you tell us about your creative process when it comes to writing and recording music?

Syfr: No it’s a secret sorry next question. I tend to have the track on repeat in my mini studio and hymn to the track on loop until the concept comes to me. I love figuring out the chorus first then I build around it.

Happy: Do you have any gear that you rely on?

Syfr: The only gear I rely on is this throat and diaphragm game *awkward stare*

Happy: You mentioned being influenced by Daniel Caesar and GIVEON. Are there any other artists that have inspired your music?

Syfr: I’m inspired by a lot of artists to be honest. I love music so I wouldn’t say I’m influenced by anyone person. More so inspired by a lot of different people and their takes on it.

I was, however, a fan of Sam Cook and John legend when I was a kid.

Happy: What can we expect from you in terms of future releases or collaborations?

Syfr: As far as future releases go, I’m still finding and mastering my sound, but with each song I write I aim to enjoy the process and hope to touch someone through my music. I love collaborating with other artist, so I’ll look forward to seeing what the future has to offer on that.

Happy: What advice would you give to aspiring singer-songwriters who are just starting out in the industry?

Syfr: My advice is to keep going. I’m nowhere near where I want to be yet, but I’m further away from where I started, also enjoy the journey.

Happy: And lastly, what makes you happy?

Syfr: Seeing how far I have come in life. Also food I love food. Food is a gift from the gods. Because if I’m hungry, I’m not happy and when I’m happy, I’m not hungry.
