Leading with his energizing single "Great Big World," Vinesto opens up about reflecting on his teenage years and the current state of the world in his new EP.
You just released your new EP “1718.” From inception to recording it in the studio, what was the creative process behind this EP?
I wanted to release an EP about how I felt during my teenage years. The thoughts and experiences I had from 13 all the way to 18. I started releasing my music when I was 17 and finished the album by 18 hence the name 1718. This album to me now is a little baby Vinesto singing and trying to get his voice heard. Each song on the album has a personal meaning to me, the song "Home" right now more than ever with the events happening in Ukraine.
Your latest single “Great Big World” inspires listeners to venture outside of what they know and explore what’s out there. Was this inspired in your life?
I always dreamed to see the world, big cities, small towns, villages anything. I love learning about new cultures, seeing how other cultures view things and how they think. To me being culturally understanding is such an important thing. I have learned to understand the differences between me and other people, the way that we think, what we want in life and what inspires us. That’s why I released Great Big World, I want people to step outside their bubble and remember that there is a whole world out there with people who are probably feeling the same way and experiencing similar things to you.
Your music feels like a unique fusion of unique storytelling and pop. How would you define your sound?
Honestly I don’t know, I don’t think I am at that point in my career where I can say that’s it, that’s my sound. I am just experimenting
