EQ Interview With Artist Jam Sutton


by Raj Rudolph

Something that we feel strongly about at EQ is real music art.  In the day and age where we purchase music almost entirely over the web and recycle our old CDs on eBay for some quick cash, sometimes the artwork, concept and credits get entirely lost in cyberspace.

Unless it's a major label release, we rarely get PDF CD booklets in iTunes anymore and that's really sad because we are loosing sight of some of the brilliant art that makes up the overall embodiment of the album as a whole.  It's this art that ties the album together.  The celebration of art in music seems to be get pushed by the wayside in exchange for simple little mp3s that rest ever so silently on our hard drives and on our mp3 players.

EQ Music Blog is firmly committed to the promotion of digital music art and that's why we have chosen respected digital music artist Jam Sutton to take over the design of the blog this week.  Jam's music artwork is stunningly detailed and exceedingly exciting.  His eye for colour and emotion are almost storylike, whilst still remaing cutting edge and utterly uber cool - beyond it's time.

I caught up with Jam Sutton to talk about digital art and how he is pioneering the return of real art in music.  We hope you appreciate his work as much as we do.  He truly is a visual superstar.

Hello Jam - how are you today sir? So tell me, what inspires you most when it comes to music art?
Hello! I’m great thank you! The music inspires me; when starting on an artist’s campaign I have to be moved and inspired to do the project justice. I would say I prefer campaign artwork that takes risks, something other than a standard portrait of a musician. Music moves you, it makes you feel an emotion, it should be exactly the same with the artwork, the artwork should make you feel something, and it should capture the artist in a way that’s faithful to the music.

EQ Interview With Eric Saade


by Raj Rudolph

Eric Saade is certainly one of pop's most exciting commodities at the moment.  A Swedish superstar and overnight European treasure after his showstopping performance at Eurovision, the world's stage is set for Eric Saade to be an international pop phenomenon.

Eric's second album "Saade Vol 1" is quite easily one of this year's best pop collections and on Wednesday, November 30th the world will get to experience "Saade Vol 2" which features a second collection of tracks that ignite the dancefloor and the European pop charts.  His latest single "Hotter Than Fire" with the uber cool Dev is already one of the most talked about pop tracks right now.

In this EQ Music interview with Eric Saade, we talk about what it's like to release two albums in one year, his love affair with Robyn, collaborating with Dev, his timeless devotion to his fans and just why he likes singing "sexy" songs.  Eric is this week's EQ Cover Boy and the whole week will be devoted to Eric Saade and his uplifiting, feel-good, pop stomping electronic tunes.  Hope you enjoy!
