Who is Boyboy? What’s your real name and where does your art name came from? My name is Sam McCarthy. I was searching for a name that had a childish nature to it, but also a name that played with the idea of gender.
Where do you come from and where do you live? I come from Auckland, New Zealand, and I live in Los Angeles California USA.
What does the music mean for you? What do you want to transmit to people? I think music is a communication platform. You can tell people about your world in a song, with what you say and how it sounds. I want people to feel a lack of concern when they hear my music, and I want them to feel like they are understood.
Where does your style come from? Are you inspired from other artists? I listen to a lot of old dance music and lots of soul and hip-hop. I love Aphex Twin but then I also love D’Angelo and Prince.
How did you started making music and why did you started? My dad taught me how to play guitar when I was 10. I started because I saw it as something I could grow with and develop a skill for.
What’s your kind of music? How do you produce your music? Are you alone or someone helps you? I like to say ‘Pop music’, because it’s a broad term that anyone can apply themselves to. I often write the majority of the song but I have close friends that I work with.
Are you working on something new? Could you give us some previews? I am realizing an album in February, and I am already working on my second album.
