We had the good fortune of connecting with Saint Sergy and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Saint, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk plays heavy in my like of career that I chose, especially the fact that I’m a native Mexican American born in the San Fernando valley. I could’ve ggotten a safe job but instead I chose to make music, not just any music, my peoples music mixed with modern Americana sound. So I’m basically cat walking over a rope. I started when I was 17 now i recently turned 23
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I was 17 when my major depression hit. I locked myself in the room, I’m the darkness. Then I realized why don’t I make music now, I always loved music and wanted to rap but it wasn’t my time just yet till now, so I first started with YouTube beats and a usb mic to get it going. Turned out to be therapeutic and helps tame the way I feel . Now I make the beats or my close homies who understand my style makes them. My style I consider it to be a mixture of my Mexican side, norteño, cumbia etc instruments of that elements blended in with my American side of high is alternative, hip hop, trap , both combined makes the one and only Saint Sergy. I have 8 albums out and a live performance audio out on all streaming platforms
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite spot is the studio, it provides an open space to be free with your creativity
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to give a thanks to my best friend in this music buisness, Jose The Panda. We’ve been working together and built a studio worth about 10k of equipment. He’s been the main engineer for the past 5 years and continues to be my main part of why I keep releasing albums every year. I would also like to shoutout Hector, host of radio series “Valley Views” on KROJ 101.5 FM
