Written ContentThe questions which I asked the artist was: What is JonCONN? What’s your sound? How did you find your love for this music? You have been compared to as a younger David Guetta What did your first live performance feel like? Reviews say: ’JonCONN’s live performance are like no other, something about them keeps you drawn in’ Please explain your secret Where in your career would you like to be in 1 years time? Who do you aspire to be like in the future? What are your hobbies and interests other than music? Who’s your favourite artist? What’s your favourite lyric? What’s your favourite song? At the beginning of my interview I followed the conventions of standard interview and introduced my artist first and said abit about them before I asked them the questions. The type of language that was used was informal as I was asking the questions on the spot and the artist answered them as he felt necessary. My editors profile is also informal as I have said what I felt and I have used exclamation marks to emphasis my point. Writing in this form means that the reader will feel like they are talking to the artist and will keep them drawn in and interested.
