Liam Green is a Swiss singer/songwriter trying to establish himself as a full-fledged artist. He started his career in 2019, though his passion for music leads way back to his early childhood, where as a young boy he was already fascinated by all kinds of instruments. By the age of 13, he was playing in some of the best wind orchestras in Switzerland and later even wanted to pursue a degree in music. Unfortunately, the narrow Swiss mindset made him take the more convenient route, leading him in a completely different direction where music was no longer his top priority.
After a heartbreak, his beloved companion came back to him and Liam found a way to express his feelings and concerns – music has since become his outlet for feelings and expressions. He tries to put his emotions into his songs, so everyone can hear them. That is what inspires him to create songs for his listeners – the ability to evoke emotions in others. To Liam, this is one of the most fascinating things in life.
The main message he tries to convey is that no matter which obstacles you have to confront, take them as a chance to grow.
In his debut album “Healing Hearts” he addresses some of the obstacles he is facing. You can find his tracks on Spotify, Apple Music or many other music platforms.
How would you describe your style?
That’s a difficult question for me to answer because I don’t necessarily follow any kind of genre or style. I just play whatever comes to mind.
I guess I am still in the process of finding “my style”, but I would describe it as a mixture of singer/songwriter with pop elements.
Why do you do what you do?
Because I love making music! Especially singing gives me such a great feeling, it helps me reduce stress – a day without singing makes me feel uncomfortable. I had a huge hole in my heart when I stopped playing music for a few years.
Ambition or talent: which matters more to you?
Definitely ambition! Talent is just something that gives you an advantage, but without ambition, you won’t achieve anything. I had to learn that the hard way. I was told I was talented when I was young, but I had zero ambition, and now I kind of regret that I didn’t have the same mindset as I do now.
What inspires you to create music?
For me, music is a great outlet for emotions. I find shelter in music, and it is a companion through life. I want to let the listeners feel what I am trying to express with my music. Evoking emotions in my listeners is my biggest goal and that inspires me!
How did you find the scouting process in Rehegoo?
It was super easy and I never felt uncomfortable. The people I was in touch with were extremely nice and helpful, which made it even easier for me.
How did you feel when signing a contract with Rehegoo?
At first, I was skeptical, not going to lie. But as I’ve already mentioned, everyone was so nice and the communication was really smooth. I had tons of questions and concerns, but Rehegoo always answered my questions within 24h, so my skepticism disappeared really fast!
What is the greatest achievement of your career so far?
Publishing my album through Rehegoo. I am new in the solo music business and creating music that has now been noticed by professionals gives me even more motivation than I already had! It’s kind of my first milestone.
What has been the biggest obstacle?
Fighting my doubts. I am a skeptical person and I want to create music that is liked by everyone – but that’s just not possible. So, I had to ask myself if I am really ready for this and if I am willing to take the risk of producing music that might not be liked at all. But if you’re honest with yourself, and you love what you’re doing, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
What is the best and worst gig you have ever played?
I used to play in an indie rock band, and we once were invited to a gig out of town. When we started playing there were just 8 people there and 3 of them were our friends. The others were not enjoying our music at all, they even shouted “Can you also play some heavy metal?!”. So, we felt quite unwelcome there.
My best gig was when we played with the same band at a final for a national music event. We didn’t win, but the gig was awesome and everybody enjoyed themselves. It was a lot of fun!
What is your worst and best fan moment?
I don’t have any fans to answer this question yet. Maybe ask me in a few months.
What is a favorite song of yours?
My favorite song is “Love at Second Sight”. It was one of the first songs I had written, and I like the overall mood of it.
