- An Interview with Kris ‘Halo’ Pierce Jammerzine Exclusive 1:06:40
Jammerzine has an exclusive interview with music producer/multi-instrumentalist/all-around-mega-talent Kris Pierce, a.k.a. DJ Halo.
As someone who literally resides on both sides of the fence in the music industry, and by that I mean the creative and business sides, this is a unique conversation into the realms of the business.
Kris has been successful as both an artist in his own right as well as founder and owner of Halo Eskew Entertainment.
And today we get to talk with him about these many endeavors as well as his latest albums (including the unique ‘Devil in a Black Dress’, review HERE). We get an inside glimpse of the business and how the current pandemic is affecting and how Kris is working around that and more. We also get to listen to the methods behind his music and collaborations as well as his humble beginnings.
About DJ Halo
Kris “Halo” Pierce (aka DJ Halo/Haunted Echo) is a multi-award winning, genre-crossing producer who has performed on America’s Got Talent (8 million viewers) with placements at DJ Times, EDM Nations, MTV, TopSpin Media, Interscope, Viacom Media Networks, Sony Creative, and VH1.
In 2015 he joined ranks with two-time Billboard Top 20 artist, Kim Cameron, releasing a dozen chart-topping originals and remixes. Sassy, classy, and forward-thinking (with just a dash of Kylie Minogue), they’ve been taking their show on the road, hitting hot locales like NYC, Miami, DC, Croatia, Amsterdam, Prague, and Ibiza.
Not only did this track throw me back to my early days of industrial, he has a great playlist as well. Check it out. #NewMusic2023 #industrial #coldwave youtu.be/9eq9PFjum9w
