During his interview with Talia Shlanger, the renaissance man of the music industry goes into why its taken him so long to get into singing and recording his own songs.In the interview Krasno explains, “I was in the background. I would sing a lot of demos and I’ve been writing songs for a long time. A lot of those records, I would do demo vocals and stuff. A lot of times, my friends would be like ‘Hey, put out that version! Put out the version of you singing it!’ Over time, I finally got it together and was like, ‘You know, maybe I should do that.’ It took a little while of recording the music, putting a band together, getting it out there. I’ve had so much stuff on my plate in the past few years during all that as it was happening, but I’m excited now that it’s kind of my main focus.”You can listen to the full interview below, as well as watch Krasno’s performance of the song “Unconditional Love.”last_img read more
