FPSF Interviews – Us.

Us.

 

I got a chance to catch up with -Us., a local electro-pop singer making his FPSF debut Saturday afternoon. Coming off his second EP, “Contact,” his short term ambitions have the industry keeping a close eye on what is coming next.

Who are you? 

I am he as you are he as you are me

And we are all together.

-Us.

What’s it like preforming at Free Press Summer Fest as one of the festival’s most anticipated local acts? What has the city meant to your recent successes? 

It’s honestly a bit of a shock, to me. I’ve worked so hard on my live performance over the last few years and it’s pretty unreal to be considered as such. I have such vivid memories of going to the first FPSF, when I was in high school. I never thought I would be performing as a solo artist at the premier festival of my hometown.

I completely owe my recent success to this city. I am who I am because of Houston and the people who live here. I’ve been really fortunate to have support from soooo many people in this community.

What are you expecting out of this performance?

I just want to be able to share my music and passion for performance with as many people as possible.

Your second EP “Contact” is out now. Anything in particular we should listen for?

Listen for growth. That’s all I can hope for as an artist. Thematically, it’s so far from my previous EP. I hope that is apparent. I’m a much different person now.

What’s next for Us.?

I’m currently working on a full length album and striving to develop my sound. I have a pretty clear vision for where the new tunes are going. I’m so excited to get the new stuff recorded.

Are you excited to see anyone else at FPSF?

I’m super stoked to see The Shins, Cashmere Cat, Post Malone, Lorde, Miike Snow and all my Texas homies! Gotta see the fam shine.
