Exclusive Interview with Osiamo artist Michael Krysh at Frankfurt Musik Messe 2013

For those of us who don’t know please tell us a little bit about your musical background?

I play bass and guitar since 1982. I started on bass but have been going back and forth. I have always done original songs, very rarely covers. For me it’s a personal expression and I try to enjoy it has much as possible.

What musical musical projects are you working on right now?

Right now I’m working on my own original tunes that I hope to play bass and guitar live utilizing the Mooer Looper pedal when it comes out.

What role do you feel musical education plays?

I was not formally taught because my parents did not want to be a musician. I did it anyway. I had just some teachers from here and there to learn the basics. I spent years listening to albums etc… Young people today have so many choices to learn. There are so many schools out there with so many people graduating with a diploma but they all kind of sound the same to me.  I miss the personal individual sound in people’s playing these days.

What do you see for the future of music?

That’s a very tough question. Personally I think an artist has to learn to do everything themselves. There is no possibility to sell a record that will pay the bills. Do everything on your own. Make a proper web site. Promote yourself. Record yourself. Then go out and play live. You can’t rely on anybody else anyway. So just do it. Make a thing, market it. Just do it!

Why do you use all Osiamo products?

Well I use the UltraStrap because you gave it to me and I love it! The Pickboy Picks are the only alternative to the old picks I used to use that are not available any more. I have 2 more Mooer that I love. The Mooer Green Mile is a transistor overdrive that gives that “tubeness” to the tone that no other pedal at even for double the price can deliver. And the Mooer Trelicopter is perfect as well. They are small and a great ‘go to session’ solution. The R.Cocco are simply the best. Just the best!
