EPISODE 5.06: Elize Ryd of Amaranthe on satisfying own musical needs, social media and crowdfunding
“I don’t feel like I have to become some kind of star in my home country. I feel more that it’s important for me to travel and make a difference [through music] in the rest of the world.” – Elize Ryd
It was a great pleasure meeting and talking to the very talented Elize Ryd of Swedish metalcore heavy-weights Amaranthe. Elize elaborated on how satisfying her musicality by collaborating in different projects can have an effect on her individual brand as a singer or songwriter. Furthermore, she explained which opportunities social media bring to artists these days, and we compared releasing an album through crowdfunding or going with a music label.
