As we continue to shed more light on upcoming artists, we recently caught up with Cimo Frankel. Cimo already has a huge following overseas but now, the dutch born singer is breaking into the US scene. Already making a mark by working with Darkchild and his new song with ARTY. Cimo spoke about what we can expect and more.

YMMW:Back in June, you released your EP Stay the Night, talk to us more about this project and your influence behind it.

CIMO: Some songs are written a long time ago and some are brand new, some are vibey and others are dancy and catchy even though I feel like they go well together. Expect an 80s/90s feel with a modern twist on all of the records.

YMMW:This past summer you headlined a show in London in association with Live Nation, tell us more about that night and what was that experience like.

CIMO:It was amazing, I love up close & personal shows like this. I could really connect with the audience. The guitarist really followed my lead on impulsive modifications to the songs. I felt at home on that stage.

YMMW: As a Dutch-born singer who recently located to LA, what are some of the challenges you have experienced and overcome with making your mark in the US music industry?

CIMO: The US industry is way bigger so that is a huge challenge. On the other hand, for that same reason, there is more room for new artists. It’s a higher mountain to climb but what’s life without challenges.

YMMW: The video game Fortnite which is a massive video game, what was your reaction when you found out your music was going to be featured on the game?

CIMO: That was incredible. It was a song I never expected to come back in such a huge way. I thought the ship had sailed on that song. A big surprise.

YMMW: Just last week your collaboration with ARTY, how did that collaboration come about and what was it like working on that song with ARTY?

CIMO: I wrote the song with Sophie Hintze and my songwriting partner Rik Annema. Him on guitar, me on vocals like a folky pop song. Sophie sent it to Arty’s manager. We met a couple of times in Amsterdam and LA before this release and are working on other stuff now too. It’s fun working with Arty and his team because they really appreciate heartfelt songs and don’t care too much about the whole formulated industry. Arty can turn an acoustic song into an EDM record without destroying its heart.

YMMW: We know you’re working with Darkchild who has worked with everybody from Brandy, Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, Michael Jackson and more. What is it like working with him and tell us about the music you have been working on with him?

CIMO: It is such an unbelievable honor working with a legend like this. We have been working on a couple of records for pitch that I really love. Pop/R&B stuff. I look forward to working with him again.

YMMW: Tell us about some of the projects you have coming out in the future and what can fans expect to hear to see soon.

CIMO: I am working on solo records that are more moody, I have been experimenting with big Q&A type backing vocals. I also wanna make another dance-able record so I will definitely work on that in the near future too
