Shitty Interview No.71

Its a pleasure to introduce you to our latest shitty interviewee; Blessed Samuel Joe-Andah, a 24 year old songwriter & producer from Sydney, & someone to watch! After being signed to a major label for the better part of the decade, BLESSED is the first project from the Sydney native that is completely independent. His first single “Sorrows” caught the eye of Pigeons & Planes founder & gained over 600,000 Spotify plays. More recently, BLESSED released “Insanity” & will be premiering the short film mid January. With the belief that emotional connection, not only through songwriting but also through production, is the key to connecting & resonating with an audience. We couldn’t agree more!

Recently Blessed teamed up with Sydney creatives, Kristina Yenko, Liv Rahme & Joshua Jasper for this rad AF exclusive photo series.

Brands featured; Storeroom Vintage, Topman, Ksubi, Spencer Project, Converse, Dr Martens.

Sticks & Stones: Would you rather eat where you shit or shit where you eat?Blessed: I can’t even hold a spoon without my hands being sanitised.

Sticks & Stones: Please draw your next tattoo.
Blessed: (Drawing of a square faced person)?

Sticks & Stones: Last thing you did to improve the planet?
Blessed: Took a 5 min shower. I love being clean, so I take mad long showers.

Sticks & Stones: Should all drugs be legalised? 
Blessed: No, because drugs wouldn’t be cool if they were legal. I’m playing, still no though.

Sticks & Stones: If you could shrink down & ride a frog around for a day, what would you do?
Blessed: Swans eat frogs so I’d wait for a swan to come through & ride that instead. I’d look hella fly with a swan.

Sticks & Stones: How would you do on that Bear Grylls show where he invites celebs to join him in the wild? How do you rate your survival skills?
Blessed: I’m an internet kid. I can’t even survive without wifi. I’d say three or maybe three & a half out of ten.

Sticks & Stones: What did Jay-Z do to Beyonce?
Blessed: I feel like he just spoke to another woman for the first time in ten years. Beyonce is a boss.

Sticks & Stones: Please shout out 5 things you fuck with right now.
Blessed: 1. Bum Bags. 2. Juicy fruit. 3. Hand sanitiser. 4. Old Kanye. 5. Snapchat (blessedsamuel).
