"I've learned that people will forget what you said,. They will forget what you did, but people will never forget what a feeling you gave them", the US civil rights activist and author Maya Angelou (1928-2014) once said. An insight, a motto, which also is Who Is Fancy prescribed from the outset: The focus on pure emotion runs actually like a thread through his music, through his whole approach as a musician. Everything he does is ultimately based on this message - and this message is contagious: if you keep your debut single "Goodbye"Listen for the first time, one feels automatically so encouraged that you think you can do everything and make every wish come true - and that's what we went to him too!
In the small town of Bentonville grew up in Arkansas, noticed Fancy early on that he was different somehow. He sang in the church, to a 11-year-old is brought parallel to play the piano - and even wrote a little later his first own songs to process what was bubbling inside him. Even then, the music was his only refuge. To say that he had in high school does not fit in so well, would be an understatement: he was finally so much harassed and teased that his parents allowed him 17 to leave school and move to Nashville to be there happiness to attempt.
Strictly speaking was "Fancy" also born only in "Music City": "I was working at Forever 21 to be able to pay my rent, and eventually started my colleagues in giving my fancy to call", he recalls. "I found the name but super For the first time I had something with which I could identify:.. Something I really was and that brought my individuality expressed"
Under its new name, he played soon three concerts that were sold out just by word of mouth within a short time. After that, everything went quickly: He landed a publishing deal with Big Machine, sat shortly after the flight to Los Angeles, where he also met with the leaders of Prescription Music, the label of Hit-Producers Dr. Luke (Katy Perry, Britney Spears). After another meeting with School Boy Records he was of Scooter Braun (Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber) Under contract, and the top 2015 presented Scott Borchetta, the CEO and founder of Big Machine, the link to his "Goodbye" song via Twitter into the net. That was the start.
However, there was to no images, no further information. Only the song. The people knew the piece, but they did not know who actually came this voice. It was almost like in the early days of radio: First there was this voice that fascinated one - without ever having seen the associated artists. After well as fellow Meghan Trainor and Kacey Musgraves his "Goodbye" were celebrated, the song was finally viral - and still no one knew who now actually behind it: There was next to the lyric video three more video clips that showed Views millions on YouTube, only appeared in each different protagonists on. And then went "Goodbye" employed in the top 30 of the US Billboard Pop Songs charts, whereupon a question more and more people: Who Is Fancy?
"There are so many prejudices, and all too often things are only superficially judged," said Fancy and moans. "It's important that my feelings and my music are paramount -. And be heard first this whole guesswork out Who Is Fancy it has me eventually allows you to share the music with the rest of the world, but all the trappings something slower tackle I wanted out of there take a little the pace and give people the chance to get to know me alone This compound but arises ultimately, because the music a sense expresses the know the audience from her own life -.. and with any look or something that has nothing to do. so you can listen to the music before they get to know the people behind it. "
As this music is "Goodbye" set to music with its smooth melody, this incredibly warm sounding production and not least the incredibly catchy chorus even a kind of confession, but primarily it is a knotless pop anthem. "Basically, act all my songs of love," he admits. "But it's not like that I just say, 'Oh, I am so sad that I was leaving.' It's about not to let it get to know that there is another way and will be better - because it is simply self worth We must not give up just because one's environment builds this pressure Sometime you wake up.. easy on and realizes that one can make of himself and his life more. "
Ultimately Fancy want to share this feeling as possible with as many people: "Yes, the name Fancy stands for freedom," the 24-year-old says in conclusion of which we now know that the name Jake Hagood stands in his passport after a few weeks ago his "second coming-out" in the US Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon had - By the way, with plenty of doubles and discreet Verwirrspielfaktor. "Everyone but has the ability to take his life in his hand and to make it yourself We are all fancy Two years ago I was working with Forever 21 -.. And now I'm here I want to show people that all. is possible. I mean to change the world. After all, we live in a world in which a lot of kids not be able to, what they really are. I want to throw the switch and make sure that people realize that it's okay, to be themselves and it's not even about me or about who there actually sing into the microphone.. it's about what kind of feeling you are the music "
