Cael is a 23-year-old singer, songwriter, producer, and content creator.

 

He has taken the internet by storm with several ultra-creative viral music videos, ranging from concept projects to live performances, and has even landed some production placements with major artists.

 

Cael is an artist first and foremost with the vision of creating a lane in music that embodies his natural honesty, rawness, and grit both figuratively and sonically.

Tell us your source of inspiration.

I’m inspired to make music simply because it’s truly the only task that I’m able to get fully immersed in without counting down how long I have until I’m finished with it.

 

My entire life revolves around my creative time and it’s something that is truly my center and my source of peace. It’s all I want to be doing.

Discuss how you develop your music style.

My best music has always come when I’ve sat down with absolutely no agenda or predetermined musical direction.

 

Whenever I’m just truly messing around the keyboard or the guitar is when my favorite ideas have come so that’s always the best formula for me – no formula. Whenever I say “I want to make this type of song” it’s just never as authentic.

.

Elaborate on multi-genre music.

I’m stoked to live in a time where genres mean much less as I’m inspired by such a wide variety of music that has nothing to do with each other. I don’t want to be a pop artist or an R&B artist or a hip-hop artist… I want to be a combination of all of them and many others.

 

We as people are very multidimensional thus our music should reflect that.

 

Artists shouldn’t be defined by one style – how could we when our moods and experiences let alone our lives are ever-changing by the day. We have a lot of room to evolve.

Tell us the best means of reaching fans.

I’ll be the first to admit I haven’t quite cracked the code on building a big fanbase.

 

Twitter has become a platform with the biggest reach for me as of late. It’s the perfect place to throw out unconventional concept ideas that aren’t airtight and perfectly polished. That’s not what Twitter is about. It’s where I’ve made the newest fans and had the most fun outputting content.

Discuss the process involved in launching a musical career.

My approach to building a career hasn’t been very traditional. I can’t say I have the answers or could tell someone how to at this point.

 

I’ve spent months commuting from San Diego to Los Angeles working as an intern, assistant, manager, photographer, co-producer, driver, and everything else in the book for several major producers and other industry people which hasn’t quite put me in the position I would have hoped for.

 

Rather than depending on someone else to “put me on” lately it’s been all about taking the power back into my own hands and making creative music content that I control.

Tell us how to develop a lyric to a full song.

I really don’t have a formula or template for developing lyrics. The one unique tactic I use is playing my looping – my instrumental while balancing on my Indo Board and spewing out some melodies which then become lyrics that I always try and avoid clichés with.

Tell us your ideal type of recording studio.

My ideal recording studio is 100% always going to be my bedroom. I use a Baby Blue Bottle microphone, M-Audio Profire 610 interface or Apollo 8 Interface depending on what I’m going for, Logic 9 or Logic X, and that’s all I need!

Describe the factors you consider in a good song.

I can’t say I know any specific factors that make up a good song being that I like music of so many different styles, genres, tempos, concepts, moods, etc. Sometimes I like a messily recorded goofy 2-minute Soundcloud song and other times I’ll enjoy a Michael Jackson ballad.

.

Tell us how you impact your listeners with your songs.

I’d only hope that when people listen to my music, they’re able to feel and identify with the honesty in the lyrics and rawness in all the production.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you interact with producers and music directors.

As a producer and composer, I can 100% relate to other producers and writers. I spend a good amount of time producing music for other artists and love exercising those muscles.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you feel after the completion of a song.

After I complete a song, I feel more recharged than ever. There’s really no better or prouder feeling. The only drawback is that the song will never be as fun to listen to once it’s done. The best time to listen to your own song is when it’s about 75% done.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your worst song and state the reason.

My worst song is one of the first songs I ever wrote… It’s called “When You’re Afraid.” It was awful but in large part, because I didn’t know what I was doing and was very young and new at music. Everything about it is wrong but you must write songs like these to get to the good ones.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you will change in your music.

I haven’t landed on my musical style and bread and butter yet. I have a lot of trial and error to continue testing out and I really want to keep experimenting. I want to start working with other producers and writers as well.

.

Tell us what is special about this release.

This song is simply one of the best recordings I’ve ever created. This song is all about upbeat and feel-good energy. It came out exactly as I’d hoped and I’m extremely proud to have written and produced this song.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about your future goals.

My current goal right now is really to just reach the starting line in my music career – whatever that may mean. I still don’t feel like I’m on the map in any capacity or have a path laid out for me. I’m just creating, which is awesome, but I need to make the first splash, gather some resources, a good team, and get started on this journey for real.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you overcome obstacles.

I overcome obstacles by just burying my head in the sand, not thinking twice, and blindly moving forward. I have no plan B, so I have no choice but to ignore the hundreds of nos I get, the constant rejection, ghosting, flaking, falling through of opportunities, etc. and think of the next idea.

Elaborate on the song.

“Rain” is an upbeat acoustic freestyle turned early 2000s Maroon 5 inspired pop song! I was playing some random chords in my room and the chorus just came right out. I kept the exact lyrics and melody that came out at that moment and built the rest of the song around it. This is the kind of song that means whatever you want it to mean – it’s really all about the feeling!

.

.

.

Elaborate on your artist’s name and the title of the album.

Cael Dadian is my birth name and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it! It’s perfectly ambiguous (unless you know that ‘ian’ at the end of last names is undoubtedly Armenian) and fits my style perfectly.
