Interview With Chris Brochu (@Chris_Brochu)
1. How did you get started in the entertainment industry?
My brother and sister used to take improve class every week. I would pick them up and drop them off but one day I joined in on one and really enjoyed myself. The rest is a long story and as they “history”.
2. What can you tell us about your debut EP “Life”?
I am releasing my first ever solo, independent and fully self funded EP entitled Life. I can tell you it has been a lot of work and a lot of time and energy was put into making it all happen. I can tell you it is the happiest that I have ever been with how the finished product turned out. And as well, I believe the Life EP is just your introduction to me, we will have many years to get to know each other.
3. Do you have a favorite song off the EP?
If I had to pick one I would have to say “Out There”. Only because the content of the song. If only one could make it to the world that would be the tune.
4. What was the writing process like for the EP?
Honestly, three years of writing while I was out and about doing acting gigs. Once acting slows for a second, I take advantage of that moment and work on something else. That is how this EP came about, in the lull of this industry I worked on music. I found myself on a high after Vampire Diaries so I kept going and made an EP.
5. Who are your musical influences?
Hip-hop, blues, jazz, Sam Cooke, James Brown, James Taylor, my family, my friends, my muses, my life. Everything influences everything.
6. Will you be doing any touring with the release of the EP?
I will be focussing on playing shows and acting. So I am fine with whatever comes first and wherever it takes me.
7. Besides the EP, what other upcoming projects do you have?
Family vacation. It was a serious business decision.
