A vintage 1960s vibe, an entrancing voice, and beautiful guitar skills are things that makeup artist Arsun. At just 19 years old, the rising singer has captivated us with his eerie single ‘Strangers in The Night’, and high tempo track ‘White Light’.
The release of his new single ‘Send Her My Way’– which was at first a scrapped demo– showcases romantic lyrics and fantastic guitar playing from the emerging singer, that will leave music lovers wanting more. After building a recording studio in the heart of New York City, Arsun along with his band are continuing to create amazing music and we can’t wait to hear more.
We got to chat with Arsun about his newest single, New York City, and so much more…
We are really loving your second single Send Her My Way, how did this track come to be?
‘Send Her My Way’ began as a demo that I brought to my producer and

I was very inspired by Bob Dylan at the time. In a
Your previous singles White Light and Strangers in the Night are also amazing tracks that create such a cohesive and enjoyable listening experience. Can you describe your sound in 5 words or less?
Rock with many different influences
We can’t believe that you’re only 20 – you have such a mature sound and aura to you, Which artists inspired you growing up?

Is there an album or EP on the way? What can we expect from it
I have more than enough songs ready to release an album. I’m just trying to gain an audience large enough that when I do release one it doesn’t get lost in the vastness of the internet.

If you had to choose any era to go back to which would it be and why?
It’s hard to say, I’d love to visit the late 50s and early 60s to hang out with Dylan, Elvis, Chuck Berry and all of the musicians. I’d love to go meet writers like Hemingway and Fitzgerald in the
If you could collaborate with any artist dead or alive who would it be?
I’d love to collaborate with Keith Richards or Bob Dylan. I’d also love to collaborate with Chan Marshall and her amazing band who I had the
