Seven Layer Piano Cakes Serves You With Holy Water (Sagittarius J Mix)

“I hate genres and labels. The fact that people think of a certain sound when the word “indie” is used shows that the word has no meaning. If I had to describe my music, it varies a lot but is generally on the darker side tonality wise. It’s accessible but has a lot of subtle complexity that musicians tend to appreciate” these are the words from artiste Sagittarius J.

Sagittarius J, a Los Angeles-based lawyer and law professor also known as Justin Hoyt, has returned with a new song titled “Holy Water” (Sagittarius J mix). Longtime Hoyt collaborator Ian Stahl co-produced, recorded, and mixed Sagittarius J, while Grammy Award-winning engineer Steven Fallone oversaw mastering at Sterling Sound.

“Holy Water” is a dark, quick, and approachable pop rock song about being ok with what seems to be the end of the world. It is about striving to remain hopeful in the face of what appears like the end of the world. Musically, it displays influences from the 1970s to the present and is meant to bring back memories of turmoil, thunderstorms, and sporadic gaps between the first two.

The song, which draws inspiration from a number of bands from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, is best heard loudly and intently. Justin, a pianist and singer with classical training, was moved to compose, play, and create music that pays homage to the complexity and sounds of several earlier times.

Sagittarius’ majority In a recent interview with Mister Styx of Musicarenagh, J spilled his opinions and also dived further into his personal life.

What is your stage name

Seven Layer Piano Cakes is the name of my musical project, and Sagittarius J is my personal stage name.

Is there a story behind your stage name?

I like seventh chords and musical layers, all of my songs feature piano or synths, and I like baking cakes.

Where do you find inspiration?

Pretty much everywhere in life, but particularly so by film.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?

I have been playing the piano since I was 3, so it’s always been around. Always been an avid listener.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?

My parents can both sing a bit, but not really.

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?

No one in particular. I just felt compelled to make and release music.

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?

I have been classically trained on the piano since I was a toddler. I picked up the guitar and bass on my own in my early teens, and started singing around then too.

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
Deftones. A wonderful experience. I still love them to this day.

How could you describe your music?

I hate genres and labels. The fact that people think of a certain sound when the word “indie” is used shows that the word has no meaning. If I had to describe my music, it varies a lot but is generally on the darker side tonality wise. It’s accessible but has a lot of subtle complexity that musicians tend to appreciate.

I hate genres and labels.

Describe your creative process.
I don’t feel comfortable putting this in print but I can assure you it’s a lot of fun.


What is your main inspiration?

I like to embrace the dark and bittersweet that life has to offer, and not run away from those kinds of feelings. So anything that takes me to another place, I tend to focus on and bathe in it, and then the music flows from that.

What musician do you admire most and why?

Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys. I think he’s the greatest songwriter of all time, and I doubt anyone will ever even come close.

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?

Quite a bit. When I started out in my teens, I wasn’t very experimental and was basically going for an early 2000s pop punk/emocore sound. Then I went back to my classical roots and revamped everything. In recent years, I’ve learned to allow all kinds of influences and genres creep into the music I’m making.

Who do you see as your main competitor?

I don’t see other musicians as competitors. We are musicians, not investment bankers.

What are your interests outside of music?

All forms of art, sports, cooking, crossword puzzles, and cats.

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?

I still am a practicing lawyer and adjunct law professor, so I guess that’s the answer.

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?

Living in a world where music is often relegated to background noise and where many listeners are listening to playlists passively.

If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?

I would incinerate Spotify. I think it has caused immeasurable harm to the artists (and therefore the listeners).

Why did you choose this as the title of this project?

“Holy Water” is my latest single, and I think it’s an appropriate tune in a time where it often feels like the world is falling apart.


What are your plans for the coming months?

Prep for live shows starting in 2023.

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans?

I will be releasing a duet version of “Holy Water” with Ruby Friedman (Ruby Friedman Orchestra)

What message would you like to give to your fans?

Support the musicians in your life. It seems that everyone has the time and energy to share mindless content on social media. Surely, they have the time and energy to share posts of the musicians in the life. A little goes a long way. Don’t passively listen to music, really take a deep dive into the art that is being made for you. And finally, relax, it’s going to be ok.
