Jammerzine has an exclusive interview with Los Angeles-based synth-pop artist and songwriter Hamid J. Hamid is one of those artists that ‘gets it’. What I mean by that is that he has that unique style and scope about him that not only shines through in his music but permeates those who listen to his music and becomes a part of them. This is what a true artist does. Takes a piece of their life and makes it a part of yours by reflecting on themselves and making that music relate to you on a soulful level.
And, in this interview, we talk with Hamid J about that process as well as his new album ‘Cycle of a Relationship’.
