Long considered a member of the extended family, 2018 saw Flevans arrive at his spiritual home of Jalapeno Records. Signing his 5th LP ‘Part-Time Millionaire’ the release sees him furthering his trajectory of song-led compositions, including more collaborations than ever with the talented Elliott Cole, Laura Vane, Sarah Scott, and Izo FitzRoy all lending their vocals to the record.
He sums the record and his approach up best with his own words: “The title ‘Part-Time Millionaire’ is a reflection of where I’m at right now – I’ve juggled writing this album with trying being the best dad I can to my two young kids – both of those things make me incredibly happy, but it’s a difficult balance and you don’t always feel you are able to devote yourself to either as much as you would like! I guess the title reflects how little time we have to do all the things we want but also how many positive things we can achieve!”
“I’m always working to make an album that takes the listener on a journey, and hope that people enjoy it from start to finish….but the most important thing for me is simply for the listener to feel something positive when they hear it. I read a really interesting article from another producer that said you can work day and night to perfect your production, getting everything absolutely perfect, but there’s no point if people don’t actually feel something when they listen to it….so that stayed with me throughout this album and will continue to be the focus for the next LP and beyond.”
