I am a 27 year old Producer, Guitarist and creative from the South of England under the name VESSEL.
I have spent my entire life in music, many bands, many projects in many genres and never worked out where I wanted to be. I had no idea what to call myself, if I wanted to be an artist on my own beats or help others and essentially spent my entire life lost but with drive sending me in every direction. I felt like I had to fit into one box or no one would listen to my music if I didn't choose one place to be. I was sat waiting for someone to come "save me" and dreaming of that moment most amateur artists dream of when they receive a call saying they were being offered A record deal and didn't need to worry anymore.
Untill Jan this year when I had a realisation, the problem was not that that had not happened to me yet, it was that I was waiting around to be saved and be given everything I wanted on a plate. This was the first time I had ever truly realised this and upon seeing this, I saw that in this fantastic age we live in you do not need to be saved anymore, there are people left, right and center making something of themselves without record labels or any sort of deal. The truth of what was happening, was I was making excuses and living in a "Poor Me" State of mind. So I got off my ass and stopped making those excuses and started putting the work in.
The first thing that I stopped, was boxing myself up into a genre or style, in this modern day you can be anything you want, want to make a house song? Go nuts, want to sing Icelandic folk songs in a cave? Go for it. Suddenly I knew exactly what I needed to do and though I had been producing since I was 16, suddenly Direction, drive and Ambition all aligned at once.
It has only been 5 months but I went from having nothing, to finding and starting to build with 4 Artists, starting my beatstore and selling my first beat, along with slowly growing my fanbase, getting endorsed by a guitar company, guitar pick up company and getting remix opportunities with big local artists that is putting my name on the map to all local producers.
I draw influence from every genre imaginable as I make all genres, I recently sold a Choral piece I wrote for someone's yoga classes, my first beat I sold was trap, I am putting together 2 Mumbahton remixes, releasing 2 house songs and producing a Lofi EP, Pop EP and Lofi/Trap EP for other artists. All whilst playing in a Band, writing folk style and Neo Soul style songs for myself.
I am a Vessel for my own and others creativity, without limit and though I have not "made it" as of yet and still have to work a full time job as a cleaner, I know EXACTLY where I am headed and I am enjoying every second of it, whilst holding massive amounts of gratitude for the gift of having been able to see this opportunity in my life, I Give thanks for everyday I get to wake up and create and I am excited for the future when I will get to do it full time.
