Tying Music Together w/ Tyfon
Today we check in with singer-songwriter Tyfon and his moody musical style produced in Greece and dispensed on YouTube to the world.
SB (StarBeat): Boot Up: How did Tyfon start?
T (Tyfon): I started listening to stuff like Lil Peep last year when I knew nothing about the eom-trap scene which is what this type of music is considered by many people, but I loved the mixture of guitar samples and the sad melodies with the bass so as a fan of sad music and a fan of hard music I knew I had to try singing over a beat like that.
That’s when I wrote my first song in this type of music after a simple “sad type beat” search on Youtube, “Walls Tell The Best Stories”.
SB: What’s in a name: Where does the name Tyfon come from?
T: I was looking for a name with no luck cause I had never thought about going under a name other than my real one before so I thought why not search for ideas on the internet. I wanted something weird cause I always liked dark stuff so I found this monster named Tyfon which comes from the Greek mythology and is born from Γαία (Earth) and Ουρανός (Sky).
SB: Spark of idea: What’s your inspiration?
T: I take my inspiration from my own experiences and stuff I’ve been through in my life. For some reason I always tend to write about the bad stuff that’s happened to me which is the main caracteristic of my music and most of my songs describe feelings of the past.
SB: Composition: What are some of your influences?
T: To be honest I have a ton of influences. I used to listen to the common radio music when I was a kid but as I grew up I started listening to rap music, then rock and then metal music and as the years passed I turned to metalcore which lasted quite long, but the more I worked on my voice I started liking other types of music like pop, emo, pop punk and acoustic music so all of that has influenced my stuff a lot.
SB: Activity: What have you been doing since you started Tyfon?
T: I started Tyfon this September and since then I’ve been releasing singles on Soundcloud and YouTube as well as an EP called “Ever So Bitter”, with 7 songs. I now have a total of 27 songs and I’m constantly writing.
With a lot of grinding and the help of a lot of channels on YouTube I’ve just started growing a little bit and now I’m close to my first million on my song “Walls Tell The Best Stories” on my YouTube channel.
I also have a music video for my song “Stalemate” from my EP “Ever So Bitter”.
