In a unique access all areas series, photographer Joseph McDermott goes behind the scenes with music’s finest. Next up for the Kingswinford native, east London born ‘Teenage Dream’, Lancey Foux.
So who are you and where are you from?
I am a product from the top shelf.
How did you get into creating music?
Through the streets, I used to spend a lot of my time on road and I would freestyle over songs in my car until one time, I went to meet my cousin Dawg at the studio and I ended up recording the song “Black Flowers” – he’s the first person to push me to keep going.
And how would you describe your music?
Like a shopping basket for someone who just got rich
If somebody hasn’t listened to Lancey Foux, where should they start?
I’ll be honest, I haven’t dropped the music that represents the best from my point of view, but I’d say “Come to Life” (my favorite song) or “Stroll”, more punk but still trap sounding, or “PINK”.
What’s the best show you’ve ever done and why was it the best?
SBTV summer cookout, it was good because I was there, full effect, major pressure was applied.
And what’s your favourite song to perform?
The slower songs, “No Drama” or “NOWX4EVA”, it’s more intimate and gives me time to really get into what I’m saying, but naturally I like the more upbeat rage based songs too. “Come to Life” probably my all-time favourite as it’s my favourite song of mine.
