This is the final part of the interview I conducted with Henry from myMusicCircle. Here we discuss the role music has played (and plays) in his life, along with his likes and dislikes. And don’t forget to check Part 1 (about his company) here.
MUSIC & YOU
When did you become interested in music? What was the first album or single you ever purchased?
I loved music all of my life. The first album I purchased with my own allowance money was Thriller by Michael Jackson (may he rest in peace). My father has video of when I was 7 years old doing the moon walk. hehehe
Are you in a band yourself, or have you been in a band in the past? Is there a file on YouTube or elsewhere we could watch?
Yes. I was an independent recording artist (Latin music) who funded his own first album a few years ago. I enjoyed the whole process and brief promotion of it. Surprisingly, I actually distributed and sold quite a few copies independently in different parts of the world. I never recorded a video because I begun to invest my efforts elsewhere… yes, in creating an online realm for the benefit of music professionals.
Musical likes and dislikes? Favorite artists?
Here goes the political answer: I like all music and all artists.
If you had to name the song that moves you the most, what would it be? Can you pinpoint the reason why?
I can’t think of any specific songs, but I immediately start to dance Latin Salsa every single time I hear it. I think it has to be because I used to teach how to dance it a long time ago, so there is a natural inclination to dance every time I hear it.
Is there a song that – to you – captures the spirit of your startup and what you have set out to do? What would it be?
“Lean on me.”
Thank you so much for your time, Henry!
