2011 exclusive web interview

In News by Thomas V. Diamond / September 11, 2012 / 0 Comments

This is a short exclusive web interview done with Thomas Diamond in 2011 prior to any social media existence.

 

Interviewer: Hello. We are here with Thomas Diamond today for an exclusive web interview for Thomas Diamond Music. How are you today, Thomas? Or what do you prefer Tom, Tommy, Thomas?

Thomas: Tom is fine. All my friends and family call me Tom. I’m doing good, Thanks.

 

Interviewer: So let’s start with a few simple questions. I understand you write your own music?

Thomas: Yes. I have several projects in the works and a few pieces I need fine tune before I release it.

 

Interviewer: How did you learn how to play piano when you were young?

Thomas: In my senior year there was a grand piano hidden behind the backstage in the high school auditorium. It was just sitting there. It appeared like no one had ever even played it. I was surprised it was still in tune. Every day at lunch time I would sneak in there and play it. I was afraid someone might come in and kick me out but no one did. I never noticed but the high school counselor was always on the balcony listening to me play. By playing it whenever I could I became very good by the end of the school year. I only got to play it an hour a day until I got my very own piano.

 

Interviewer: You also mentioned that you never had a piano lesson in your life?

Thomas: Yes that’s correct.

 

Interviewer: Simply unbelievable. How did you manage to compose or play the way you do?

Thomas: When I look at a piano I look at it like a Rubik’s Cube. Everything comes together and I know what keys to push to create music.

 

Interviewer: I would really like to speak to some of the people that can confirm this. I just find it unbelievable by the way you play.

Thomas: That’s not a problem. Just don’t reveal their names. I want to shield all the people I know from the media.

 

Interviewer: I understand that you are releasing singles for purchase. Is there reasoning behind it? Why not release a full album?

Thomas: I don’t want to release an album with 15 mediocre songs and 1 good song. Every piece of music I write I strive to keep it at a very high standard. I’ve written many pieces but it’s just those few that I wrote I felt have lived up to expectations. I know it’s not possible to please everyone but I want every piece to be a hit with the listener. I’m a perfectionist if I don’t release anything soon it would take me literally a millennium to release anything so I decided to release each piece as singles.
