We had the chance to interview David Kofi via Instagram to talk more about his music career, musical influences, and his challenges in the music industry.

Hey David Kofi, Thanks for coming to Honk Magazine to talk about your music career. Tell us a little more about when you first got into music?

I started playing keyboard in church aged 13 years. I started piano learning at school at aged 8 but I enjoyed it more when I was introduced to Gospel music.

If you could describe your sound/style in one word, what would it be and why?

I have a gospel background which is a big part of my playing. I have R&B, neo-soul, and jazz influences infused into my playing.

One word – Melodic

What would you say to any aspiring recording artists who look to your work?

Find an artist you like and study them as much as you can. For me, Robert Glasper is someone I look up to. I would also encourage artists to find a part-time job to help fund their music career if possible. Have a plan and don’t be scared to ask for help.

Do you have anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you?

I have my second EP ‘Kokoro’ coming out on Friday 10th September
