By Jack Barnes

Getmybuzzup: Tell us a little about yourself?

Peerdom Atlas: My name is Peerdom Atlas.  My hobbies include collecting twink things –- mostly beads — cool fashion, and making music.

 

Getmybuzzup: How long have you been in the music industry?

Peerdom Atlas: Since the age of 5.  I started performing at school events.  My Mom encouraged me from a young age to get involved in acting and vocal arts.

 

Getmybuzzup: How did you get started in the first place?

Peerdom Atlas: I performed the role of an Indian Chief for my kindergarten graduation ceremony.  My famous line: “Smoke this peace pipe, and be my friend.”

 

Getmybuzzup: How would you describe your sound?

Peerdom Atlas: I mix pop rock with blues and hip-hop.

 

Getmybuzzup: Who are your inspirations in the music industry?

Peerdom Atlas: Alanis Morissette, Justin Bieber, Halsey, Ellie Goulding, Bastille, Imagine Dragons, Marshmallow, Hozier, Sum41, Justin Timberlake, Drake, Incubus, Sublime.

Getmybuzzup: How do you go about writing a song and what is your process?

Peerdom Atlas: I like to take my time writing each song, and let the content materialize naturally.  I don’t rush the process.  I am very particular about what I finalize.  I like to brainstorm with friends and family, mostly.

 

Getmybuzzup: What is the concept behind your latest project?

Peerdom Atlas: I write mostly about love, especially during the winter. Presently, I am finalizing two singles, “Off The Track” and “ExploD” which debut August 1st.  I am very excited about both.  I want peeps to hear my true take on love, and what I feel about that emotion.

 

Getmybuzzup: Any plans on touring to promote your latest project?

Peerdom Atlas: There will be a U.S. tour, however, I’m not sure when.

 

Getmybuzzup: What did you buy with your first check off music?

Peerdom Atlas: We purchased equipment for our school’s choir program with the proceeds of several concerts.

 

Getmybuzzup: What are must-haves when you’re in the studio working?

Peerdom Atlas: A lot of inspirational items, creativity tools, and toys, and giant sheets of paper, for brainstorming while we record.  Some of the best content comes from the time spent in the studio.  I also like to bring to my friends.

 

Getmybuzzup: What is the best piece of advice in this business you actually followed?

Peerdom Atlas: Music is a tough industry to make a career out of. “Never give up” is the best advice I know.

 

Getmybuzzup: Will you be collaborating with any other artists on this project or in the future?

Peerdom Atlas: Yes, but I cannot say who(m).

 

Getmybuzzup: Do you think your music is mostly enjoyed more for the beats or for the lyrical flow and content?

Peerdom Atlas: It’s both.  People love the lyrics, people love the beat; it’s the combination that makes a winning song.

 

Getmybuzzup: What area do you need to improve on in regards to your career? (Example: Better production, Delivery, Stage presence, etc..)

Peerdom Atlas: I’d say my nerves on stage. I like performing in front of a lot of people, but it still makes me nervous!

 

Getmybuzzup: What’s your all-time favorite song?

Peerdom Atlas: “Drive” by Incubus.

 

Getmybuzzup: In your opinion who is the most influential and successful artist in your genre today and why?

Peerdom Atlas: Justin Timberlake; he has produced the most recognizably successful pop music of our generation.  I think he knows what he wants, and creates from his heart to produce excellent music.

 

Getmybuzzup: Who has been some of your favorite artists that you’ve been able to work with?

Peerdom Atlas: That’s in the works.  I can’t say!

 

Getmybuzzup: How do you feel about the current state of music?

Peerdom Atlas: I believe it’s time for new and mainstay artists alike to put more personalization into their lyrics, and develop songs that come from the heart, not the popular guess.

 

Getmybuzzup: Any dream award shows; you hope to one day play at?

Peerdom Atlas: The Grammys.

 

Getmybuzzup: What is your main goal as far as music?

Peerdom Atlas: My main goal is to create music that makes people think about and feel love when they hear a favorite song.

 

Getmybuzzup: Who would you say your music relates to the most?

Peerdom Atlas: The audience really defines itself.  I don’t tell others who “should” like my music, or build expectations before I perform.  People like what I have to provide, and I have a great time being myself.

 

Getmybuzzup: What separates you from other artists? (What’s makes you different?)

Peerdom Atlas: I would have to say my creativity; I use a lot of methods a lot of people abandon, or take for granted when they’re young.  I like to color, build with blocks, and play video games when I’m in my creative mode.

 

Getmybuzzup: When you’re not in the studio, What do you like to do for fun and relaxation?

Peerdom Atlas: I enjoy reading, listening, camping, bike riding, and swimming.

 

Getmybuzzup: If you could work with any producer who would it be?

Peerdom Atlas: Mike Will (The best!).

 

Getmybuzzup: What’s the biggest highlight of your career thus far?

Getmybuzzup: What is your dream venue to perform at?

Peerdom Atlas: The House of Blues, in Chicago.

 

Getmybuzzup: What artist music are you currently a fan of?

Peerdom Atlas: Halsey; she’s extraordinary.

 

Getmybuzzup: When performing live what are some of the things you do to get the crowd involved?

Peerdom Atlas: You’ve got to jump, clap, exercise, loose dance, and use body language in every way you can to convey the energy and give everyone a consistent performance, regardless how far they are from the stage.  It’s never easy to get everyone involved, but it can be, if they see your energy and investment of attention.

 

Getmybuzzup: When performing live and the crowd is singing along how does that energy make you feel?

Peerdom Atlas: It’s the best feeling in the world.  Singing a song that everyone knows is a gift from the artist and God.  It’s an incredible feeling.
