Who is nostraightanswer?My name is Samuel ("Sam") Blakeslee, and I'm a music producer and vocalist under the name "nostraightanswer", commonly known otherwise as "Lupin", formerly "Kenji-B". I primarily focus on electronic genres of music, using inspiration from pop and rock genres. I started composing shortly after discovering VOCALOID, and presently I'm considered a familiar face in the scene. Additionally, I provided the voice of Zero-G Limited's VOCALOID DEX.
Here's a short list of honors and accolades as part of my time as a music producer and vocalist (these are good places to start if you're unfamiliar with my work):
- Winner of Voctro Labs S.L.'s "MAIKA Original Contest" with "Define Me", placed as "Third Most Popular Video" and "Voctro Labs Favorite Video (International)".
- Voice of Zero-G Limited's VOCALOID DEX, beta tester and demo producer for DEX and DAINA.
- Winner of the second edition of Digital Extreme's "Tenno Tunes" contest with "Codex".
- Honorable Mention in the 2018 Rendition of the Miku Expo Music Contest with "On Top".
Below is the most recent example of my work, as a producer or as a vocalist:
What are you doing?My goal is to create high-quality original content; as a multimedia creator, this will include original music and video, primarily featuring the voices of English VOCALOID libraries or myself.
Another goal is to motivate myself to create new things, and branch out. I'm interested in pursuing my career as a vocalist, developing music for specific concepts, etc.
Why Patreon?As I am legally blind and therefore unable to drive a car, Patreon is the most easy-to-access method of making a living. Plus, music is what makes me happy. It's how I express my ups and cope with my down. If at all possible, I want to keep doing this for as long as I live, and Patreon is a way to make that happen.
My sincerest thanks, for everything you've done or will do,
(If you have any questions, send me a message!)
As such, by the time this goal is met, I'll be able to ensure the delivery of at least one song upload to my YouTube channel every month.
