Upcoming singer Liam Hooper is Spreading His Musical Aura Through the Latest Track “Breaking Down”

Liam Hooper

Liam Hooper, a promising singer with remarkable storytelling skills, has created an extraordinary soundscape rich in emotional melodies. He recently released a song, “Breaking Down,” which showcases his exceptional singing talent, which perfectly complements the captivating rhythmic flow. On Spotify, the song has already gained a lot of coverage.

The charismatic singer recently sat down with our team for an interview in which he revealed his thoughts and feelings about his musical journey in general.

How would you describe your music?

I think my music is just real stories about situations in my life and inspired by problems that i have already overcome.

Tell us about “Breaking Down”. What was the inspiration behind the single?

Breaking Down is fairly self explanatory. Every lyric in that song describes how i felt during the time i was writing it, like the lyric “breaking down” was specifically inspired by a time when i was really not doing well and genuinely felt like i was breaking down because of everything i was feeling.

 Liam Hooper  

What has been your constant source of motivation and inspiration?

Listening to music always inspires me, especially motivational songs, even when I’m not happy I listen to them because they inspire me.

For those who don’t know, for how long have you been singing and creating music?

I have been singing since i was really young (pretty much when camp rock came out). I didn’t start writing songs seriously until i was 17, but i did write songs when i was 12 i think, i just didn’t take it seriously like i do now.

Are you happy with whatever you have achieved in your career?

Short answer, yes. But i really hope to achieve more in the future whenever it is possible and hopefully grow more as an artist.

If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be?

The artists i would like to collaborate with the most are Griff, Alexander Stewart and Emilee Estoya, because they inspire me every day and i really look up to them.

What is one message you would give to your fans?

I don’t really have any “fans” as much as i do supporters but if i did, i would say don’t expect life to be easy because it really isn’t, and if you want to achieve something, you really have to try and be prepared to put everything into your passion.

8 Questions With Ryan Lagup

Sheer genius is demonstrated by the fascinating versatile artist and songwriter Ryan Lagup in his new album “Beat Shop .” The impeccable album is creatively entertaining and captivates the audience with an immersive and catchy vibe.

We’re lucky enough to have sneaked in for an interview with a talented artist. He was generous enough to lend some of his precious moments as we gleefully stumbled deep into his personal and professional life. Here are some excerpts from the interview:

“Talk of the Town” is captivating from the start to finish with a combination of unique beats and catchy lyrics. What was the inspiration behind the single?
Thank you, “Talk of the Town” was actually a freestyle from the top of my head. I had just set up the new studio and testing things out. The beat I fell in love with and I went from there. I was done with the song in a day.

What has your musical journey been like? Run us through your story.
Well I started pursuing a music career in 1997 I was in a group at first but always new I was going to be a solo act down the line. Before I went with the stage name as Ryan Lagup I had a great journey 3 albums, toured, opened up for major acts like Stevie B., Jocelyn Enriquez to name a few and in 2007 I competed on season one’ Famecast and I was one of the top 5 finalist placing in fourth.

What were the biggest initial hurdles to pursuing your musical dreams and how did you overcome them?
To be in this business you have to take a lot of rejection. Your pursuing something at the moment seems like it is your whole world but you have to just learn and move on. This week alone I had 5 other hoping opportunities that didn’t go my way but again I have many more that are opening as well. I believe everything happens for a reason.

Do you have a favorite musical project that you’ve worked on?
I gotta say this latest project, “Beat Shop” only because I wrote every song and had the control on everything. I recorded a bunch of music that only 13 made the album and I’ve been listening to these songs saying im not done yet so im trying to figure out what to do with these?

Do you have any dream collaborations? Who are they?
The Weeknd, I think we have similar styles. Doja cat, who I totally am at aw with. Timberland and Pharell.

What’s your motto or the advice you live by?
To just do you. If you fall pick yourself back up and try again.

Are you working on any project right now and what can we expect from you in the future?
Yes. Several actually.. I do have my own shoe line (Lagup Shoes) which is doing awesome. Im also currently shooting the music video for my next single, “Money In Your Pocket” so look out for that.

Thank you for speaking with us! For our final question, is there anything else you would like to add?
If there are any independent artists out there looking for a opportunity to be on a compilation album send me your EPK. Its a great opportunity we have like 9 spots left open, Its Free!!! Hit me up..
