Spotlight on ll ƜIƝƬƐɌ ll (11winter11)- An acoustic rock star with a voice that melts snow - Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

 

Winter, unlike the season, brings warmth, passion, and a vibrant personality full of humor to SL's live music environment.  He performs professionally in Real Life in countries all over Europe; Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Bulgaria, Romania, Cyprus, Serbia, and Hungary.


This powerful songwriter/performer performs a high energy, rock, blues rock and classic rock guitar show covering tunes from Elvis and the Beetles to Bon Jovi, White Snake, Aerosmith, Gun and Roses all the way to Metallica!


A home atmosphere filled with music encouraged him to begin playing the piano at seven and then he picked up the acoustic and electric guitar at the age of twelve. He had his first professional concert in 1998 and since then has performed for audiences as large as 15-20 K! 
As a songwriter/performer he says, "The emotion is what the song and the story behind it is what represents me and to those that listen."


With Winter, you can be sure that you will only get a real live performance. There is no pre-recorded playback. You get all the little variances of his "in the moment" showing, as he radiates out to each of you that request his interpretation, the finest music in SL.  Yes, my friend, WINTER IS HERE!


Interview with Winter

Lanai: Hi Winter, It is a pleasure getting the opportunity to chat with you. I’ve been hearing your name around the grid. You seem to be creating a buzz. Where are you from and what is your history with music?

Winter: Hello Lanai! nice to meet you, and thank you for your kind words! I am from Cyprus. My History with music started when I was 6 years old, as I began learning the piano, at 15 I picked my first Guitar and created my first Band. I Have been doing that ever since! :)

Lanai:  What does music mean to you and which person or people inspired you the most?

Winter: Music is my life. It keeps me sane... the first bands that inspired me the most, were bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Manowar and Megadeth.





Lanai: How did you discover Second Life and what were your first thoughts?

Winter: I first Entered Second Life in 2011 where I was in for only 6 months, on another Account. I deleted that account and after a 7 Year absence, I came back 2 years ago on Halloween :)

Lanai: Who helped you get started in your SL music career?

WInter: Dj Flames, Arisha, helped me get started and explained the basics. I used to sit around campfires and play songs for friends on voice. I really didn't know there was a live scene.





Lanai: Now that you have been performing in SL for the past 2 years, do you consider SL a game or an extension of your real life?

Winter: I consider SL a little bit of Everything! And a part of my RL! :)

Lanai: Every artist has something uniquely different from the other. How would you describe your style and genre?

Winter: My style and genre is Rock and Hard Rock,with a little Blues inside sometimes played with an acoustic Guitar. there are no effects (other than a little reverb), no playbacks, no Loopers or anything like that. I try to change a lot of songs to fit my style and way of playing. A lot of people call it 'Winterify' :))))

Lanai: What Genres of music do you personally listen to and which ones do you like to perform?

Winter: My Main Love is Heavy Metal and Classic Rock. I love to also listen to more toned down rock and Blues stuff. To me the most important part is Catchyness and Melody. This is also the style that I play in SL.





Lanai: What fulfillment do you get performing in Second Life compared to performing in front of a live audience?
Winter: It is VERY different. The coolest part of it, is that you get to play in front of People from ALL over the world at the same time. People who might not have ever heard you in RL. Another Cool thing is the friends that you make throughout the journey!
Lanai: Do you also perform in real life? With the pandemic how has that impacted you?
Winter: Yes I do perform in RL. I am the singer in Rock/Metal Band . Our 6th Album was just released 2 months ago and we have not been able to tour it or even get to perform some of the songs. I can't wait to perform for people again. The Buzz you get from the crowd and the reactions, when you see someone is VERY different, and emotions run high.
Lanai: You are a very talented artist. It shows in the crowds you draw in SL. What advice would you give others who want to perform and find success in SL?
Winter: My BIGGEST advice is Stay grounded and true to yourself and the people who come to watch you. Don't try to ride the high horse cause people are not stupid. Stay Humble and appreciative.
Lanai: What is your availability and how can venues book you for a performance?
Winter: Unfortunately the time zones are sometimes a disadvantage. I am on European Time. I can play anywhere between 9AM and 3PM SLT



Lanai: Is there anything else you would like to share with our reader?

Winter: I just want to say a BIG thank you to ALL the people who support me. I really appreciate them and all the fun and memories we create every day! Cheers and thank you!


Thank you Lanai for this interview.

INTERVIEW WITH James (acousticenergy.nitely), CeciliaRosalie reporting...


James is one of the most talented artists around the grid. He is passionate, and derives his energy from the crowd. If you accidentally find yourself at one of his live concerts you will be captivated by his voice and his whole stage presence.

CeciliaRosalie: James thank you for agreeing to this interview.

James: Thank you for considering me. It's a pleasure to get familiar with SLE readers :)

CeciliaRosalie:  Tell us a little about yourself so our readers can get a sense of who you are.  Let’s kick off with what brought you to Second Life?

James: I began performing in Second Life during the winter of 2008.   I first joined to chat and to meet people.  But I found it difficult to get my head around the SL viewer and wasn’t able to really connect with other people so I didn't log in again for a few months. A Skype friend suggested that I should try singing in SL.  Now I come to SL to perform and I love it!

I’ve come across many talented musicians in SL and I’m humbled to perform on the same stage as many of them. Moreover, I’ve developed deep friendships with people from around the globe and I’m blessed to be surrounded with such love and support. My fan group subscription is currently over 1,400 including my Subscrib-O-Matic.

CeciliaRosalie: I think most of us are rather daunted by the steep learning curve that is necessary when we first join Second Life.   I remember all the cute little buttons frightened me too! (LOL) It certainly seems as if you have connected with people now!  So what is it about singing in SL that has you so enraptured?



James: I'm not a professional musician.  I write songs and perform in order to connect with others and bring them together through music.  There's healing in a song.
I've been singing since I was a child.  I was always the loudest singer while performing in school and church plays and I always felt happier after singing.  I've never sung or performed professionally but I always feel like a Rock Star in Second Life because the venue audiences are extremely supportive.

CeciliaRosalie: A natural talent then. Please tell us about your first time singing in SL, how was it?

James: My first venue performance was at The Drunken Clam.  My Skype friend got me all set up with a stream and helped create my avatar, then he basically pushed me out onto the stage.

Suddenly I was receiving tips, it was a thrilling moment.  I made enough to buy new clothes and eventually enough for a new skin.

CeciliaRosalie:  What qualities do you think someone needs to be a successful singer? Have you ever had voice classes SL/RL)?

James: I’ve never taken singing lessons.  Singing just came naturally for me.  But, the vocal chords are muscles so if you practice regularly then eventually your performance improves.  I’ve noticed that if I take a break from singing then my voice gets weaker.



CeciliaRosalie:  How would you describe yourself?

James: Well, my listeners always have a blast at my shows.  They say that I'm humorous and flirtatious over the mic, haha.  I always try and engage with my audiences and bring them into the performance. I think it's important to create smiles and get the venue chatting and talking amongst each other to help build community.

CeciliaRosalie: What was the funniest thing that ever happened when you where on stage?

James: We laugh a lot at my performances . . . But there was a time while I was playing and another great SL musician, Suzen Juel sent me an enormous penis and I accidentally attached it to myself while playing.  We all got a kick out of it and I just started singing improvisational lyrics and created a fun song about it during the moment.

CeciliaRosalie:  What kind of songs do you perform?

James: Mostly I sing romantic ballads but always mix in my original songs and several upbeat songs. I sing many radio favorites from Guns n Roses, Nora Jones; John Legend to Radiohead. I try to stay up to date with the most recent pop songs too.

CeciliaRosalie: Do you mix sets or is each performance dedicated to a specific genre? And what about taking requests from your fans?

James: At each venue performance I sing a different set of 10 to 12 songs. I enjoy mixing up genres and being creative. Many people make requests and I always love to sing them if I know the songs. I sing over 150 cover songs and I have about 100 originals that I pull from too.



CeciliaRosalie: Where we can find you to enjoy one of your live concerts? How can club owners reach you and book you if they are interested?

James: I'm fortunate to have standing gigs at the following venues:

Seaside Lounge - every Thursday evening at 7:00 PM

Under The Willows - every other Friday at 6:00 PM

Nashville Music Park - the first Friday of each month at 7:00 PM

The Gallery Rouge - the last Sunday of each month at 12:00 PM

Please contact Meredith Aviatik for booking AcousticEnergy Nitely (James Olmos)

Additional info:

CeciliaRosalie:  Is there anything in particular that would you like to share with our readers James?

James: My audience are a very diverse group. They are more than a group of listeners, more than fans, more than avatars; they are my friends.  Without these friends my songs are empty. I need their ears and hearts to explode life into my music, and to fill the space between the melodies.

I’ve developed deep relationships with them over this past year. Some have left and some have endured with me. Such is life in both worlds. I've laughed with them, shared tears, listened as they spoke about their break-ups and encouraged them while singing at their weddings. My love for them is deep and I'm in continual awe as each attends my performances over and over again.
I love this group of friends and I try and say 'I love you' to them as often as I can, in and out of performances. As I mentioned, my audience is a very diverse group - diversity with one common ground - a beating heart that animates each avatar. And I get that. So I sing to their hearts.

CeciliaRosalie: Thank you for your time James, I wish you all the best with your promising career.

James: The pleasure was all mine. Thank you very much.
