The album finds its inspiration in Junny’s thoughts and influences from those around him, which are akin to a blank canvas that absorbs variegated colors. When it comes to colors, the musician has spotlighted shades of himself through his artistic prowess.
Junny has unequivocally showcased his ingenuity as well as versatility through both, solo as well as collaborative projects. With this, he has proven his mettle as an emerging star in the global music scene.
The singer-songwriter continues to carve his position as a musical genius. Starting with the release of his first full-length album blanc, he is all set to highlight his growth as a soloist with his forthcoming first North American tour.
Recently, Junny spoke to SeoulPop about his music-making process, his aspirations, and his upcoming blanc tour.
You have shown your musical color in very distinctive ways through each of your releases. What can fans expect to see from your new album blanc?
Various styles of music, some that I’ve never attempted before and hopefully this album can help me evolve as an artist!
What is the inspiration behind blanc?
I wanted to create the most personal album that contains the experiences I’ve had during my time as a teenager till now!
If you had to describe your new album in a single word, what would it be?
PERSONAL or JUNNY
What artistic influences are reflected in the musical style of the album?
The influences are very dynamic, and definitely resemble a lot of the genres that I enjoy listening to today!
What is your creative process like? What are your goals and hopes for blanc?
It starts with a simple conversation with my producer about life, what I want to write about, and starting completely from scratch. That’s how we’ve created this album and I think that’s what makes it so raw and personal! My goals are for my fans to enjoy the album as much as I did creating it and to catch the ears of first-time listeners as well!
How has your music-making process evolved over the years?
Having to privilege to write for many artists and just writing many songs throughout the years, I’ve found my own comfort in the studio and a team that can help me create exactly what I want to express. I think that’s the biggest difference from my early days in Korea.
How would you describe the music you want to make right now and the musical styles you would want to delve into in the future?
It’s honestly whatever I think is great, I’m very open in terms of genres and I tried to be as open as possible for this album. I plan on doing the same for my future so I can reinvent myself and come back with a song that hits harder each time.
Your discography boasts of some very successful collaborations. Who are the artists that you would like to collaborate with in the future?
Any artist from around the world! I’m open to any collabs so whoever is down can let me know!!!
You’ve worn many hats as a singer, songwriter, composer, and performer. Which part of the industry or what new things would you love to explore going ahead?
As of now, I want to stick with what I’ve got and really perfect my craft haha maybe later in the future?
What can fans expect from this upcoming tour? Can you give us a glimpse into what’s in store?
They can expect a lot of Junny – new and old songs for my new listeners and my day ones. It’s going to be an amazing time 🙂 I hope to see you there
What advice would you give your fans to encourage them to color their lives ‘blanc’ canvases?
Embrace every experience whether it’d be bad or good because that’s what makes you who you are in the future! + listen to blanc if you can because that just might help too 😉
Meanwhile, Junny has released his fabulous first full-length album blanc across various music sites. Additionally, from September 4 to September 16, the singer-songwriter will conduct his first tour of the blanc tour across 11 cities in the US and Canada.
