    Amazing inspiration to the music industry. Myself as well as most viewers continue to listen to his music with love in passion in our hearts as he mostly definitely gives his audience. He’s also a deep down great person inside and out. He lives an amazing and caring life for himself along with his fans he portrays a great mindset for others and their dream in the music industry too. There’s not a thing he cannot do to lead others to an amazing life as his own, with the biggest heart I’ve ever seen along with spark in his eyes, he sets the show for others as they were his best friend of family. He knows how to not only do amazing work, but most certainly how to make his amazing work shine from the inside out. I myself have came to know the more personal,”Al” along with tons world wide. We all know how important it is in life to just be real and true to yourself. He knows every aspect on that to the extent. He’s real, true to his fans and an all around great inspiration to us all. So honored to know him and remember as well as carry on his work of greatness.

    So happy and proud to be apart of The(Your) Walser Team and Thank you so much for sharing this Interview.

    I’m so proud of you and your achievements.I watched the entire interview and it was amazing listening to you.Everyone should start from somewhere and you’re already way above that point.There’s no way you are a digitally unknown DJ/Artist.(as digitatalmusic presented).You didn’t claw to fame as a Grammy nominee-You earned it with a lot of work and effort.
    Congratulations on picking the independent artist’s path.You got the European culture in you,you are an unique individual and that will make you stand out of the crowd anywhere you go.
    I appreciate your personal interaction/connection with your own audience,that makes you even more special.

    Love you,AL

    Al Walser is authentic and that’s one of the many things I admire about him. I began watching Al on Periscope 3 months ago. I love his music, singing, staring, signature body moves and intelligent conversation. He is a wonderful person and a great entertainer! I look forward to seeing and engaging with Al and Team Walser on Periscope every chance I get. Thank you Digital Music News for posting this interview with Al Walser!

  15. Annette Conlon

    What a great way to get to know you, Al. You are a true artist! Thank you for sharing!! 🙂

    Brilliant, candid, and very helpful interview. Sent me back to listen to his music, which projects his intelligence and daring sense of fun. I wonder why this mouse-that-roared is in fact an indie artist when he’s clearly talented, smart, and personable enough for the “big leagues”. But frankly, I like him better as an industry outsider. Dat’s rock’n’roll.

    Hey Al: thanks for bringing this to my attention. Yes; you and I agree that an artist is most fulfilled by their actions as opposed to record sales.It’s interesting though that more records sales happen organically anyway. Let’s continue our lives as people who enjoy what they say and how you say it and win win will always be there for us. I will always continue to help artists really feel the soul in their songs.
