An Interview with iamtheliving & Teon Gibbs

  • Describe your sound in 3 words

Soulful Sexy Vibes

  • Which are your major music influences? 

Pharell, Craig David & Goldlink

  • What is your favorite album of the past year?

WWCD by Griselda and Love Song For a Zebra by Robin Katz

  • If you had to choose one Synthesizer (analog or digital) which one would it be? 

Most definitely the Juno 106

  • If you could change anything about the music industry, what would it be?

I think we need to find a way to get more money for streaming for emerging artists.

  • Do you consider your music club driven? In which place or state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music? What would be your dream performance venue?

I’d say we make music to live with! Whether it’s playing in the clubs, it’s on at a restaurant or you clean your house to it we just want the music to make you feel good. As for dream performance venues we’d love to play at place with some allure and notoriety like Brixton Academy in London or the Hollywood Bowl, y’know, a spot that feels like you can check it off your bucket list.

  • What is your favorite dish to make or eat?

IAMTHELIVING: just a good ole homemade salad for me

  • One last thing we should know about you?

Teon actually lived in Croydon (South London) for a few of his teenage years and IAMTHELIVING is actually from Peckham (also in South London), crazy that we had this commonality so it helps with our synergy and how we communicate when making new tunes.

Thank you very much!
