Having dropped his iconic new single ‘Videogames‘ last Friday, I caught up with breathtaking pop artist Sean Wyer. We chatted about the music industry, his dream support gig and the best advice Sean give to his younger self.
To anyone new to your music, name 3 words that best describe your sound.
Optimistically, heartachingly, queer.
What’s your writing process like? Do you write the music or lyrics first?
For me, it’s back to basics: a room with a piano. I still write my best songs on the piano I learnt on as a kid. Music and lyrics can come in any order really. Generally speaking, though, the core moments come to me at the same time. Then it’s just a case of filling in the blanks!
If you could change about the music industry, what would it be?
More trans representation for sure.
What would be your dream support gig? Bonus points for place/venue.
Since I saw Adele sing “Someone Like You” at the BRIT awards, I’ve dreamed of doing that gig. She was emotional and beautiful. It inspired me massively.
What’s the best advice you’d give to your younger self?
This is a really tough one because I was in the closet for most of my teenage years. I’d
probably tell a young Sean to love himself regardless of anything else and get out there and slay the world.
