Welcome to the world of Carson Aday a budding musician who communicates with his music. Over the years, Carson Aday has drawn inspiration from his surroundings, using relatable lyrics that resonate with every listener. His music is not directed at a certain group but can be consumed by the masses.
Although his love for music has been around since childhood, his musical journey started when he turned 16. Since then, he has written music about losing friends, moving away to college, and, of course, heartbreak!
This revelation was made during a recent interview with Mister Styx of Musicarenagh. In the interview, Carson Aday delved deeper into his personal life as well as his musical growth, and he also touched on some of the challenges he has faced in the music industry.
His recent song, Fade Away, feels like a song from the 1960s, yet it sounds refreshing and contains a lot of contemporary influences. The theme clearly captures the wild thoughts through his head—the fear of losing his Christian faith. This is an interesting song through and through, from the lyrics to the production.

What is your stage name
Where do you find inspiration?
Most of my music is inspired by things I feel strongly about. I’ve written about losing friends, moving away to college, and of course heartbreak!
What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
When I was little I used to get up in front of my parents and dance around, singing a Disney song or 2000s radio hit. I’ve always loved music, but didn’t realize I had a talent for it until I turned 16!
Are you from a musical or artistic family?
My answer to that 5 years ago would’ve been no, but most of my family either plays or is learning an instrument now!
Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
A close family friend, Scott Ayers, inspired me to follow my gift in music and pursue this career. He told me that I had a one-in-a-million talent, but that means there are still hundreds of people like me out there. The only way I can set myself apart is through my work ethic.
How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
After an impulse purchase of a keyboard off of Facebook marketplace, I learned to play Come Sail Away by Styx and Fur Elise by Beethoven within a couple of hours after first touching the piano. A year later I was competing internationally for classical piano. I started teaching myself guitar, bass, and songwriting a couple of years after getting burnt out from classical piano.
What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
The first concert I went to was my own… I didn’t get into live music until I had developed a passion for performing.
How could you describe your music?
My music draws inspiration from the music of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Growing up listening to The Beatles, Elton John, Michael Jackson, and other stars, I pull a lot of ideas from vintage music while using modern production elements to create a unique sound.
Describe your creative process.
It really just depends on what inspires me. Sometimes I’ll have a lyrical idea first, and create a soundscape to match the tone of my poetry. Conversely, I’ll occasionally get a melodic, harmonic, or rhythmic idea first, and have to flesh out what lyrical concepts match the tone of my composition.
Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
Definitely! When first starting out, I wrote strictly indie rock music. Most of my work was modeled after The Strokes since they were my biggest inspiration at the time. Since then, I’ve branched off into a pop sound, aligning more with both current works from Harry Styles or Charlie Puth, while also having a reminiscence to them, reminding the listening of Fleetwood Mac or other older groups.
What are your interests outside of music?
I love to travel. I’ve had the opportunity to visit most of the United States, alongside all of Western Europe and some of South America. The difference in cultures across the world is beautiful to me!
If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
I’m a business owner, and have been growing my business, Jupiter Studios LLC, since I was 17. I’d likely still be doing that!
What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
Getting people to care about what I’m passionate about is really hard. I’ve done countless marketing campaigns, short-form content series on Instagram and Tik Tok, among other creative ways to get my music in front of people, but that continues to be the biggest challenge!
What are your plans for the coming months?
I have SO much music in the works right now. I’m working on finishing up 12+ songs and putting together a strong marketing campaign to get my music in front of as many people as I possibly can.
What message would you like to give to your fans?
Thank you so much for listening to my work. I really can’t do this without you. We are so excited to get more songs out to you guys in 2024!
