Montell Fish and DJ Gummy Bear: Spiritual Odyssey in 'Intercession Before Charlotte

Montell Fish et Dj Gummy Bear : Odyssée spirituelle dans 'Intercession Before Charlotte

Through his latest project, "Intercession Before Charlotte", and the embodiment of his alter ego, "dj gummy bear", Fish explores the depths of his faith, his creativity and his inner struggles, offering his audience a work rich in nuances and reflections.

Montell Fish, a renowned Christian musician, finds himself at the center of a controversy on social networks, fueled by the appearance of "dj gummy bear".

This character, a mythologized version of Fish, adopts a dark and enigmatic aesthetic, contrasting with the brighter image that one might associate with his name. “Dj gummy bear” embodies a youth imbued with faith and curiosity, navigating the twists and turns of spirituality and religion.

The release of “Intercession Before Charlotte” not only introduced “dj gummy bear” to the general public; it also marks an important step in Fish's artistic evolution. This project is not only musical; it is accompanied by a “book of lore”, the “Book of Charlotte”, which delves into the history and motivations of the “prophet” dj gummy bear. This story, structured in chapters like a bible, enriches Fish's creative universe and provides a narrative backdrop to his compositions.

Fish uses the creation of characters like "dj gummy bear" or "Ghost Boy" to explore and deal with various aspects of his past. This approach allows him to revisit previous experiences and emotions, expressing them abstractly through different pseudonyms. “Dj gummy bear” stands out for his depth and commitment, embodying the most accomplished persona Fish has created to date. His style of clothing, which has sparked comparisons to satanic influences, is actually a symbolic representation of the jester, loaded with meaning.

Choosing the jester as the central motif for “dj gummy bear” serves several purposes. On the one hand, it symbolizes the effort of distraction in the face of CHARLOTTE's temptation, a metaphor for fame and the shadows that accompany it. On the other hand, it represents a diversion from the CHARLOTTE project itself, signaling that although the album is in preparation, it requires more time to be fully realized.

The EP "Intercession Before Charlotte" deliberately positions itself between Fish's previous albums, "JAMIE" and the upcoming "CHARLOTTE", choosing the term "intercession" for its religious connotations.

Tracks from the EP, such as "I Know I Failed You" and "Irrational", delve into Fish's personal dilemmas, blending faith, failure, and the search for balance between personal relationships and spiritual beliefs. Fish promises that live performances from this EP, accompanied by a string section, will provide an immersive and eye-opening experience, including in such iconic settings as Hackney Church in London.
