Q&A with Pink HOney Moan

 

As Pink Honey Moan, singer/songwriter, recording, and performing artist, Jared Lindbloom, has embarked on a journey beginning on the majestic rolling prairies of his home state of South Dakota to the eastern seaboard of NYC.

The balance of his music teeters between dusty, folky, homespun songs on his early EP’s and his electro-surf-rock & pop albums with the bands Fishdoctor and Stargazy. Singer-songwriters remain at the heart of his influences (Bill Withers, Brandi Carlile, and Paul Simon to name a few). He has received international radio play with 1M+ streams amassed; including sync placements in film and television.

What artist would be your dream collaboration?

I would love to work with Jack Antonoff.  He really knows how to serve the song being both an artist and producer.

What song are you most proud of and why?

There’s a song I have demoed called ‘Radiant Child’ that I’m really excited to get properly produced and recorded.  I think I like it so much because my daughter always wants me to sing it to her 🙂

I also need to give a nod to my song ‘Closer to You’ as it was the tune that brought me out of a long, musicless hibernation.

What is your star sign, and do you feel like it represents your artistic style? Why or why not?

Haha that’s a great question!  It’s something I never really believed in until I got older — I always thought it was a bit “woo woo” 😉

I’m a Taurus, born on May 15.There’s certainly an earthy, organic quality to my music that is defined by my star sign.  I tend to gravitate to singer-songwriters that can captivate you with a tune just from their voice and some handclaps or a solo instrument.  

What is your go-to gas station order?

For a long road trip, Gardettos.  For a jaunt across town…probably a Snickers bar.

What are some of your non-musical influences, like books or movies?

I’ve been really into Stephen Pressfield lately — diving into his books and podcast interviews.  All about overcoming resistance.  My wife thinks it’s all it bit too ‘self-helpy,’ but I think as artists we need all the help and encouragement we can get to tame our self-doubt.

I also just finished an official lyric video for my song ‘Running Up The Hillside’ and used scenes from the 1993 rollerblading movie, Airborne.  It’s super cool the way it turned out!  I’ll be putting it up on my YouTube page (@pinkhoneymoan) soon here if you’d like to peep it.

What’s a lyric from one of your songs that is especially meaningful to you? Tell us a bit about it! 

There’s a line from my song ‘Closer to You’ that goes…”when I’m flailing in the dark, and the matters of my heart, a whisper to the spark.”  That bit always reminds me of how there’s this voice that’s calling out, wanting to be heard, and I just need to feed and nourish it so that it can speak its truth.       

What advice would you give to your younger self? 

Enjoy the process and find ritual in it.  Churchill said it best: “Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.”

What are your goals for the year, and what can we expect to see from you in the future? 

I’ll be releasing my official lyric and music videos for ‘Running Up The Hillside’ by the end of the year.  I’ve got about 4-5 more songs that I’m looking to release in 2022 that will roll up into a full EP offering.  And I’m collaborating/writing new material with some musicians I really respect.  You can keep up with all things Pink Honey Moan and the full honeypot at the link here.

Thanks so much for having me!
