Artist Of The Week: Q&A With Anthony Koletti

Artist: Anthony Koletti aka Paws Off
 
Hi MBC fam!!!

Welcome to another Q&A for the “Artist of The Week Series”.

Yes, it has been a long time since my last Q&A and I can’t wait to share with you all my special guest that I interviewed recently.

Recently, I got in touch with the talented Producer and Artist Anthony Koletti, who hails from my hometown Sydney Australia.

One thing I love, is discovering artists’ who have a story to tell and need a voice, to talk about their craft, their background story and their journey.

And that is where my artist comes in.
Koletti talks about his earlier career before music, what inspired him to get into music, what was the most rewarding and most challenging, his latest EP release and more.

Anthony released his latest EP “Ozaki8” which you can purchase now on ITunes and listen on Spotify.

ITunes: https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/ozaki-8/id1105719053
Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/5Xo03O09n4hNxuI5LyTN2R

Check out the audio to one of my favourites off the EP called “Missing You”.
 

Before the release of Ozaki8, this artist worked with Mia Milan releasing “Perfect Place” and Sheena Wilbow with “Infactuated”.

Love both songs and you will too :)

Ok everyone, please welcome my special guest Anthony Koletti aka Paws Off.

Please tell the readers who is Anthony Koletti and where you’re from?

When I was younger I used to compete in inline skating. I worked as a hairdresser for 20 years in some amazing salons around the world.

Born and raised in Sydney where I still live.

How old were you, when you knew you wanted to become an artist?

Having been a creative artist of some sort my whole life.
The first memory of creativity came at a very young age. I was 9 years old and The Simpsons had just come out, what a catchy tune I recall thinking.

I remember being at my cousins house who have a beautiful Grand piano.
I sat myself on the throne and played each note until I nailed it which took around an hour of persistence.   

How did you get the name “Paws Off” as your artist name?

You can’t listen to music with “Paws On”.

What has been the most rewarding and the most challenging, being in the music industry?

Most rewarding thing to me is seeing anyone tapping their feet and nodding their heads when appreciating my craft.

Your latest EP “Ozaki8”, which song is your favourite? And which song was your favourite to produce?

My favourite song is track 3 “Missing You”.

My favourite to produce was “Ozaki 8”. I remember sitting on the balcony, with my wife franticly writing down words on a post it note.

Having already named the album “Ozaki 8”, the music had more or less been produced but I had no vocals.

Being not much of a song writer, I sent the words I had written to the vocalist on the track, Anki surprisingly loved them and “Ozaki 8” was born.

The title of the EP “Ozaki8”, what does it mean?

The question everybody asks when they see the name of the album. The album was actually named by my son. The answer to this question is simply, I listen to music constantly to shape my energy levels.

The same applies to the music I produce, “Ozaki 8” is the energy conjured up while pushing the boundaries of life progression, or simply the euphoric feeling captured while undertaking your favourite activity, passion or sport (whatever that may be for you).

You have produced and worked with some amazing local artists. Which artist did you enjoy working with and why?

I am very lucky to have worked with only admirable vocalists.
Ozaki 8 my “Debut Album”, has been the most enjoyable to work on alongside Anki Delport aka “Lokka Vox”, being an album you have to tell a story.

To hear the story you have to listen from start to finish.

In the coming months, what should the fans expect?

2016 is set to be an explosive year for “Paws Off”.
A remix album of my greatest hits also a follow up album are already in the pipeline. Stayed tuned for an abundance of “Uplifting Audio Fuel”.

And what would you like to say to your new and current fans?

There is nothing more flattering as an artist, than people loving and finding meaning in your music. Without people listening to your music it doesn’t exist. To all on the journey and just tuning into the journey.

Much Love,
https://open.spotify.com/album/5Xo03O09n4hNxuI5LyTN2R
                
Such a talented human being.
I can’t fault not one of the songs released to date.

Thank you so much Anthony for taking part in “Artist Of The Week Q&A Series”.

This artist releases such fresh content, that you would want to hear more and more.
It’s perfect to play for any occasion, mood and any time of day.

To me when I hear Ozaki8 it makes me happy, energised, content and ready to start or end my day.

I love dance music and whenever I hear this album it takes me back to my childhood i.e. 90s and early 2000s.

If you’re like me, than you are definitely in for a treat.
