Milena Galasso Expresses Herself On “I’ll be Gone”

Milena Galasso is a London-based singer-songwriter producing POP music influenced by her Italian/Serbian heritage. At the tender age of 5, Milena was already writing her songs, although she started playing the piano at a very young age, Milena didn’t take any of that seriously until she went on to study for a master’s in Popular Music Practice at BIMM London, where she perfected her craft to near perfection.

Influenced by Natalie Imbruglia and Taylor Swift, Milena’s powerful vocals merge naturally with the memorable guitar riffs and drum pace to produce her latest single “ I’ll be gone”

I’ll be gone is a reflective yet upbeat song that was inspired by the desire to find freedom via music. This song represents a road towards independence that starts with doubts and fantasies and gradually leads to the action itself, be it in a poisonous friendship, relationship, or even a place. You’ll be living alone at home one day after I’m gone.

With such great vocals, Milena Galasso is one of the artist to look out for. She touched on her latest single and why she chose this as the title of the song in an interview with Mister Styx of Musicarenagh. If Milena is showing such potential, even at the early stage of her career, then, she has a lot of great music incoming

What is your stage name?

Milena Galasso

Is there a story behind your stage name?

It’s just my birth name, so my whole life story is behind it, haha.

Where do you find inspiration?

In everyday life, mostly. I’m a pretty active person, maybe hyperactive sometimes. I enjoy always trying new things, travelling and meeting new people; that’s when I get inspired. I always get new ideas for my songs when I’m going somewhere, riding my bike or on a train.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?

It was my best friend, my go-to place when I felt lonely, happy, angry, sad… I would lock myself in my room and listen to the same song for hours if it made me feel something.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?

Not really. My parents have always encouraged me to pursue music, but it was just a hobby to them.

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?

Probably my music teachers, as they made me realize that you can make a career out of music. I was always very curious and inspired by their work.

How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
I started playing instruments at a very young age, first the piano, then the cello and guitar. It was all like a fun game to me, like doing sports or any other after-school activities.

I really loved singing though I didn’t think you could learn how to sing the same way you could learn to play an instrument until my mum asked me if I wanted to take lessons when I was 11. Then I could never stop. I wanted to become better and better, and eventually, I wanted to write my own songs to truly express my feelings and share my stories with the world.

I wrote my first song when I was 5, haha. It was all a trial and error until I went to university here in London and started learning about songwriting techniques.


What was the first concert that you ever went to, and who did you see perform?
Justin Bieber in 2013! Getting my parents to let me go took a lot of convincing.

How could you describe your music?

Very pop, catchy, nostalgic and checky at the same time. Probably timeless and uncompromised by current musical trends yet easily accessible and fresh.

Describe your creative process.

My best ideas always start when I’m about to fall asleep or when I’m busy doing something else rather than music! That’s why I always record a melody line along with some lyrics on my phone, so I can get back to it later. Many times, however, I felt stuck with my ideas and needed to figure out how to make them into a finished track. That’s when I turned to my team for help.

What musician do you admire most and why?

I think Taylor Swift. It’s impressive the number of hit songs that she can write. Her image and branding are solid, feminine and sexy, but also sweet and approachable.

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?

Definitely, although I’m only at the beginning, so you’re gonna see it evolve even more.

What are your interests outside of music?

Many. Travelling, reading, gym, yoga and learning new languages. I enjoy going to a club sometimes, but only with the right company.

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?

Good question. Should I start worrying about it?

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?

My family has always wanted the best for me, but we struggled financially, so I had to work hard to prove that I could pursue this career independently. Like every other creative type of work, making music pays off slowly, so you have to take up many side jobs, and it’s such time and energy-consuming that you may lose focus. But hey, I wrote a song about it and can’t wait for you to hear it!

Why did you choose this as the title of this project?

I’ll be gone is an introspective yet uplifting tune that comes from the urge to break free through music. Whether it’s a toxic relationship, a friendship or even a place, this song symbolizes a journey towards freedom that begins with doubts and fantasies and slowly leads to the action itself. One day I’ll be gone, and you will be at home on your own.


What are your plans for the coming months?

I’m working on an album, but more singles are coming before that. I’m also planning to do some gigs around London, so I’ll see you there!

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans?

I do, but I can’t say yet. Stay tuned!

What message would you like to give to your fans?

Thanks so much for your support! Keep streaming and sharing my music. I can’t wait to show you what’s next 🙂
