Interview: Lucien Laviscount
Lucien Laviscount’s debut single Dance with You is out now and we’ve managed to grab a few quick words with the man himself.
PopBucket: Hi Lucien, thanks for speaking to us. You’ve been an actor for many years now, starring in well known TV programmes like Grange Hill, Coronation Street and Waterloo Road. How was the transition from actor to singer? Were there any difficulties that you faced?
Lucien: The transition from acting to singing was definitely a challenge but thats what life’s all about. What I found more of a task was proving myself as an artist. People have their expectations and views of actors breaking into music and vice versa so the pressure is on!
PB: And did you find it daunting, moving into something different from what you’re used to?
L: The thought of doing something first time round on a platform to be criticised is always going to be daunting but in the same instance it’s something I love to do so no amount of criticism could stop me!
PB: As Dance with You is your debut single and some people would have yet to hear your music, how would you describe your sound and vibe?
L: For the first single we’ve gone for a house pink puff kinda vibe, but the stuff I’ve been working on is more alternate drip hop.
PB: You’ve collaborated with MANN for Dance with You. What was it like working with him? Did he teach you anything?
L: Working with MANN was an insane experience, the shear professionalism was something anyone could take note from!
PB: So can we expect to hear much more from you in the future? Is there an album in the works?
L: I’m definitely going to be putting some more music out there so hold tight!
PB: And lastly, if you could collaborate with any artist, past or present, who would it be?
L: Kanye West and Sam Cooke !
PB: Well thanks for your time Lucien and all the best for the future.
