Here´s an interview with Hollywood Tramp, also from his time back in Germany. Read the translation below:
The voice of „Firestone“ on now revs up solo
He´s rated as the most promising singers/songwriters these days, you may know from Kygo´s hit “Firestone”. The song ended up at the top position of the iTunes charts in 23 countries. End of may he released his solo single “Hold Me Up”, while his second single “Start Again” became #1 in home country Australia. We´ve met Conrad Sewell in Hamburg.
Hollywood Tramp: You already began with music at the young age of 8. How can I imagine an 8 years old boy that sends tapes to the record labels?
laughs – This story is a big exaggerated by the record label. I started writing songs at the age of 8. They became more through the years and I started to record them when I was 11-12. That´s also the point of time when I started to send them to the labels.
