We’ve had JERUB’s latest track ‘No Good Alone’ on loop over the last 2 weeks, so it seemed like the perfect time to check in with him and set the task of picking 10 tracks for a new D2D Mixtape! Delve in to all the songs he picked below.
THE MOST RECENT TRACK YOU RELEASED
Often when I sit down to write, what comes out is usually what’s on my mind at that time and what came out of me was this. The truth is, I’m that guy who can easily go in on himself and be isolated but I’m learning that is not always the best place to be. I think everyone can relate. The last 16-18 months we’ve been forced into a place where they have to be alone, having to isolate and all that and I think we are all realising that we need people. We need each other. Isolation is a killer. We need to do life with each other. So that’s what the song is about really.
A SONG THAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME AN ARTIST
For me music is a vehicle to our emotions. It has an amazing ability to evoke a special feeling and that’s what this song does for me and it’s what I want my music to do for others.
A SONG FROM THE BEST BAND YOU’VE SEEN LIVE
2019 in Birmingham. It was an amazing experience.
A SONG FROM YOUR TEEN YEARS
I remember learning to play this on guitar when I first started.
A SONG YOU’D ENTER A BOXING RING TO
This tune is just a bop. I feel like if I was gonna enter a boxing ring I’d want to enter in good spirits.
A SONG THAT WOULD PLAY IN THE TRAILER OF YOUR BIOPIC
Because surely it would have to be my own song? I also feel like the song is a good representation of me.
A SONG YOU’D PLAY TO ALIENS
Unsure why, I feel like this song has a magical feeling to it and would be cool to show.
A SONG YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO COVER
I love this song! Just haven’t covered it yet.
A SONG FROM THE ARTIST YOU ARE MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO CHECKING OUT AT D2D
I love Beka, she’s a great artist, songwriter and all round good human being
YOUR ABSOLUTE GUILTY PLEASURE
