Q: What is your name or what would you like to be known as?

A: My real name is Jonathan but everyone calls me Lumo.

Q: What do you want your music to say to the audience that listens to it?

A: I want people to love themselves and embrace all the things you may hate about themselves, cause at the end of the day no one wants to be a stranger in their own skin. I want these kids to listen to my music and feel free. Free to be and do whatever the hell they want to.

Q: What is your creative process when creating new music?

A: Majority of the time it’s through abstract ideas of life. Sometimes I’ll think of scenarios and stories and I’ll give them a score for it. Like what would it be like to wander around the Louvre in Paris with the homies or what does it sound like to be front row at a fashion. I think of it as creating the soundtrack to everyday life.

Q: Would you say you represent yourself through your music?

A: Absolutlely. I think, as a creative, that it extremely important to exhibit as much of you to the world.
