Interview with . . . Apollo Twenty

Let’s just say for the sake of the argument that I was looking for a cult to join. I would be tempted to join the cult of Vincent Walter Jacob. It would probably be the coolest cult – philosophy, music and creativity during free time. I could volunteer to work in the garden. Hopefully, there would be talk of conspiracy theories, aliens and spaceships. The music is already better than what most cults have.

Since I’m not necessarily a follower of cults or in search of myself, I will just stick to listening to Apollo Twenty on repeat.

Where was your first concert as a fan? As a performer?

I think the first concert that made an impression on me was Deep Purple back in 1998 in my hometown in France. My dad took me there and it was so cool to see legends from the 70’s performing live. I couldn’t believe it. As a performer, I had an high school band and we managed to play a bar. A lot of friends came to support and the show made it to the local news (only because my dad wrote the article haha). Those are great memories and it was the beginning of a journey I’m still on with Apollo Twenty and my other projects.

Do you have a bucketlist? If so, what’s on it?

I’d love to do a world tour! I mean we’ve been home for a whole year now and I can’t wait to be able to be playing shows again. I’ve been fortunate to play in the US, France and Russia so far but there’s so many other countries and cultures to visit. So that’s definitely number one on my bucketlist. Other random entries would be: Finish my Ph.D. in philosophy, Write and direct a movie, write a novel, and start a cult.

What was the last thing that you read?

I’m currently reading a lot of Roland Barthes because I’m working on him for my Ph.D. He’s a French philosopher and semiotician and he had a great influence in France and the US on cultural and gender studies. His essay about photography was also very influential.

What are you listening to at the moment?

I’ve just created a playlist with my all time favorites and I’m spinning it a lot. It contains very diverse artists from Buddy Holly to The Voidz.

If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing?

I’d be an artist of any other kind I guess. Creativity is my favorite thing in the world and I feel like I don’t have enough of one life to get into all these fields that I’m attracted to. Recently I got into analog photography and I’m learning how to self-develop and it’s just so great. It feels like a magical process. I wrote a screenplay last year too. As long as it’s about creating something and add value and meaning to my life, I’m on board.

Who would you like to collaborate with in the future?

I’d love to collaborate with anybody interesting really. Recently, I met Annie Hardy from the band Giant Drag and I asked her to collaborate and it seems it’s going to happen sometime soon. We’ll see ! But that’s my next step, collaborate a lot.

What do you want people to know about your music?

I want them to know Apollo Twenty is a personal side project apart from my main band “Yard Of Blondes”, which is more of the rock genre. Apollo is my was to experiment with dreamy textures and synths. Come and say hi on my socials. @yardofblondes @vincentwalterjacob @apollo.20

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
