Restylish x KM.T Interview


IG: @heiskm.t

Restylish: Where did your passion for music come from?

KM.T: I feel my passion for music was born into me. I have been playing music since I was 4 years old by taking piano lessons. Later on I started drums at age 7, continued into music production at age 14. Then later becoming a full fledged music artist at 19. So over time music just became a part of my DNA.

Restylish: What inspires you?

KM.T: Oddly enough, what inspires me is the endless possibilities to create the music I want. I get inspired by making and creating my own musical story and being able to not only sonically create and build my own vibe and feels, but I then get to direct and make a music video that encompasses what I envision as I create the song well. It’s truly inspiring to see and recognize your own potential because it pushes you to go even further the next time.

Restylish: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

KM.T: In five years, I see myself as a constant big billboard charting music artist. I see myself being able to take my music production to a whole new level. I can see myself being everyone’s next favorite artist, and hearing my music when people drive by, seeing my music videos played on tv, and hearing my music in shows, and movie films. I envision in five years, I will be awarded for my creativity and will be able to steadily create big picture productions for my music.

Restylish: 3 words to describe yourself?

KM.T: Innovative, Creative, and Dedicated 

Restylish: What’s the first thing you do in the morning? 

KM.T: First thing after health and hygiene, is planning out my day. I then begin writing out my daily goals on my white board, and heading straight to working on my music and pushing myself to the fullest extent possible each and every day. 

Restylish: Is there an artist you want to work with that you have not yet had the opportunity to work with?

KM.T: I would definitely love to work with Kendrick Lamar. I feel that I could learn so much as an artist from him that it would be insane. The way his brain works and how he paints his own picture of his own struggles is quite fascinating. It’s undeniable to me that he is one of the greatest artists of all time.

Restylish: If you were stranded on an island what are the three things that’d you’d take with you? 

KM.T: My music set up, a video production set up, and some video games.

Restylish: Which people or books have had the most influence on your growth and why?

KM.T: I really enjoyed reading a book called “Found” by Margaret Petterson Haddix. All time favorite books of mine that i’ve read so far. For influential people, my mom and dad have definitely been my number one most influential people in my life. Even though my dad passed away at a young age, both of them have contributed and still contribute so much into the human being I am today.

Restylish: What’s your favorite song in your catalog?  

KM.T: My Favorite song in my catalog has to be “Honestly”. The song to me is incredibly heartfelt and it became a staple milestone in my writing point. This song I felt my songwriting had shown improvements and there are times where I listen back to it, and get new meaning to the same lyrics. It is as if the song predicts the future or has overseen/foreshadows certain choices of life.
