Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
My name is Fenrir Clover but my real name is Dimitri Dunn. I was born and raised in south central California.
I’m currently living in Arizona. Fun fact about me I’m a huge anime fan anime is life that’s my motto I can’t help it I’m inspired by it fairy tail is my number one I also have the guild emblem tattooed on my shoulder haha I think it’s dope.
The type of music I make is what I want to speak to your heart to your soul. The reason I started making music is because I used to be one of those wallflower kids really shy and stayed to myself i never had anyone care about me or listen to what I had to say no one ever made me feel like I mattered I got picked on for being weird and just needed a personal release so I started writing and I just couldn’t stop now here I am 18 years later and it’s the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning. Music is my personal diary it’s my therapist and my best friend.
I want music to speak to us again in a way that heals us guides us makes us better people and I don’t feel like enough music like that is being made so my goal is to revive that sense of feelings and accepting every dark emotion you feel through music. I’d like to think people who listen to my music walk away better people with morals integrity and such.
I have new two singles I’m releasing within the next three months and I’ll be rounding the year out with a four song Ep
I think this new stuff is some of my best work yet
My first single comes out April 22
I’m a nocturnal type of person I come alive at night while personal feel dead on my feet during the day
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
If I had to say what makes me different than anyone else in this industry is I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not I accept that I’m lost as a person that I make mistakes and I have room to grow that at times I am like everyone else I’m not perfect But the biggest thing is I’m not in competition with anyone I’m moving at my own pace doing what I do best while minding the business that pays me but I do have a pretty unique look though so I can say that sets me apart my mindset is also different I don’t see things the way everyone else does I determine to prove that my way is the right of doing things as far as music is concerned the music i make can’t be made by anyone but me and I can say that confidently.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
The day I knew that I was born to make music that one moment when I was four years old changed my life. I heard the song killing me softly with his song by Fugees the first time I heard it it struck a cord with me I started crying and I couldn’t explain why the feeling was so raw so powerful it just felt like something clicked in my head I knew right then I wanted to tell stories but not just tell them I wanted to paint a vivid picture of what I was going through where I wanted to go and what I wanted out of life I like to say our life is like a blank canvas waiting to be colored in with our experiences now I had a vision but I had no idea how to bring it to life. I watched a lot Disney channels movies growing up and I think it got to me two movies in particular made me take music seriously dropping any excuse just doing all I can to make it happen. The first movie was let it shine hahahaha just thinking about it today still makes feel like anything is a possible and the second movie was a Nickelodeon movie called rags. That movie made start calling every agent and label I could get my hands on. It got so bad that I used to spend 3 hours a day for two years yelling and pleading outside capital records to just give me a shot i never knew where capital records was at first I was lost in Hollywood trying find my way home one day and somehow ended up around capital records building and from there I just kept showing up it was ridiculous looking back on it now but that’s what pushed me to make what I wanted real
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
One of the biggest challenges I had was accepting that I can’t just be an artist I’m going to have to be a marketing guy, a producer my biggest supporter and I’m also gonna have to sacrifice a lot of my time to work on music to work a normal job because I’ve learned artist don’t make a lot of money doing music so I went homeless a few times because I couldn’t come to terms with that I tend to be stubborn so it took me a while to accept that I’ve made a lot of dumb decisions because I was so determined to prove everyone wrong I thought I knew everything but I was foolish and It cost me my house all my money and my friend circle I spent years building I definitely felt at my lowest during that time but I overcome that now I understand what must be done in order to get to where I’m trying to go.
Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?
J.cole because I respect his view on things I feel that after a conversation with him I’d have an Epiphany.
Alessia cara I love her music and I love her thought process she’s so good at telling stories and writing I’d love to just pick her brain
Neyo I really would love to talk to him he was a big role for me growing up I just felt like he had the gentleman blueprint he’s also a great songwriter so I’d love to get his opinion on some stuff and ultimately just listen to his experience as a songwriter and see if he has any pointers for me to become a better writer
