New York-based artist Travis Demetri released a new single titled "Do I Ever". The Daily Fern caught up with the young star, to hear more about the song.
The Daily Fern: I listened to your latest single "Do I Ever", and I loved it! What was it like working on this project?
Travis Demetri: I’m happy you enjoyed the record! My process for creating ‘Do I Ever’ was a little different. Especially following up after my first single ‘Rock With Me’. Do I Ever was inspired by a dating situation where I felt under appreciated which eventually turned left. It’s literally all my different emotions I felt at time, in one song.
The Daily Fern: What led you to chase a life in music?
Travis Demetri: I’ve always been captivated by the entertainment industry — especially the performing arts and music sector. Throughout high school I’ve done musical theatre, voice lessons and so on... However, I wasn’t ready confident at the time to pursue music. I went on to then study acting, which got me started in the industry. So with timing , going through life and constantly learning, I started making music.
The Daily Fern: Are you currently working on any new projects, and if so, what can you tell us about it?
Travis Demetri: Other than Do I Ever out now. I’m actually in production for my EP. I’m super nervous and excited. It will be my first EP. Just imagine leaving a little kid in a room with white walls and crayons. If you really did it, that’s going to be the vibe of my EP. As an adult of course. Lol It’ll showcase different elements of my personality.
The Daily Fern: Can you describe your writing process for us? How do you get your creative juices flowing?
Travis Demetri: When it comes to writing I have an idea of what theme and emotion I would like to create off of. I also go through and listen a ton of beats. If ones stick, I mess with it for a little, usually when it comes to the melody and chorus aspect. That’s like the foundation for me that’s me going when it comes to me writing lyrics.
The Daily Fern: And finally, when you're not making music, do you have any other hobbies or interests ?
Travis Demetri: I absolutely look to cook. A lot people think I just eat a lot but I actually throw down. I’m a huge foodie. To me cooking is so creative. You can just walk right in the kitchen and make some different all the time. I like to learn new skills so cooking fits my life perfect.
