Introducing Eyeden, an R&B artist from Coventry who has built a fan base through cover videos and original songs by posting on Youtube and Facebook, managing to gain over 100,000 views on his social platforms. Check out my interview with him below!
VogueWonders: Hey Deniz, for those who are new to you, who are you and what do you do?
EYEDEN: I'm Deniz Apaydinli, also known as Eyeden. I'm a recording artist
VogueWonders: How long have you been doing music?
EYEDEN: 2. 3 years (Roughly haha)
VogueWonders: What does EYEDEN mean/stand for?
EYEDEN: Eyeden comes from my surname Apaydinli. If you split my surname up 'Ap-AYDIN-li' Aydin is pronounced Eye-dun in Turkish. I changed the ending to Den as it’s obviously a shortened version of 'Deniz'
VogueWonders: What genre would you describe your music as?
EYEDEN; that’s HARD. Search 'Eyeden Do It Like Me' into YouTube & have a think ;)
VogueWonders: Any musicians you dream to work with one day?
EYEDEN: Hmmm, collabs have never really been in my mind. Travis Scott & Drake would be wavey
VogueWonders: Your new song ‘Do It Like Me’ is out, how long did that take you produce and what was it like?
.EYEDEN: It took me around 4 days to write and 2 hours to record and produce. QUICKQUICK
VogueWonders: What do you think you can bring to the current music scene right now?
EYEDEN; Everything that they haven't got right now. In particular in the UK. The R&B sounding vocals with aggressive rapping, with an upbeat trap-sounding beat.
VogueWonders: What are your current favourite fashion brands and why?
EYEDEN: I don’t wear Brands if I’m honest. Only my trainers are branded. Everything else is high street. PLUS I rarely shop; I just have so many old clothes and hand-me-downs which I recreate.
VogueWonders: Where do you wish to be, this time next year?
EYEDEN: Larger fan base, better music, more festivals. HAPPINESS.
VogueWonders: What has been your favourite highlight within your career so far?
EYEDEN: Southall Mela & Godiva Festival
VogueWonders: What was it like performing at Godiva Festival?
EYEDEN: Crowd was electric! I saw my dreams come true in front of my very eyes. I also literally live 2 minutes from the park the festival was held in.
VogueWonders: Finally, What’s next for Eyeden?
EYEDEN: MORE BANGERS AROOJ! I am not stopping till you can’t get my songs out your head.
VogueWonders: Thank you so much for taking your time out, can’t wait for what’s to come!
EYEDEN: Thank you so much hun!
