What is your real name?
What’s your official showbiz name?
How did you get into music?
I have always been into music since I was little, both writing and singing. The first band I was in when I was around 7, was with my friend, and we called it “Mixed Colors.” We used to dance and sing along to Janet Jackson and En Vouge, but funnily enough, we were never signed to a deal. However, it wasn’t until I was 33 that I picked up the guitar for the first time, and it wasn’t until a few years later that I really started to write again.
What field or genre are you into, and how would you describe it?
I categorize music into two categories: music that moves and music that does not. and this will be different for everyone. When someone says they don’t like, for example, “country” music, I find it so hard to believe you can write off an entire genre of music. I want music to make me dance, cry, and get excited about going out, and if it does that, then it is good music for me. The great thing is that those feelings are different for everyone, which is the exciting part of the music.
Do you have any role models you admire? Why the reason(s)?
There are so many people out there doing amazing things, but women who are writing, producing, and owning their images really inspire me. Artists like Carly Pearce, Taylor Swift, and Phoebe Bridgers.
They are putting out songs that tell stories that mean something to their fans and themselves. Then looking to the past, women like Dolly Parton, Carole King, Blondie, Pattie Smith, Annie Lenox, and Madonna are examples of women who have paved the way.
What do you look out for in this line of business?
Authenticity is it for me.
What are some of the challenges you face in your career path?
The biggest challenge is having a full-time job in addition to putting out and marketing music. Unfortunately, independent artists have a hard time generating income in this climate, so in order to be able to put out my music, it is essential, at least for now, to be working.
The other thing is that marketing has changed so much. I am terrible at social media, and things like micro-content and Instagram marketing strategies take my time away from creating music.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
I think it has had both a positive and negative impact. On the upside, more people are able to put out amazing music without having to have a deal or afford studio time, and that is amazing.
But about 60,000 songs are added to Spotify every day, making the competition tougher than ever. It has also made music easier to get rid of. The focus is on singles, not albums, short songs to fit TikTok; and the journey of discovering new artists is sometimes more focused on how many social media followers you have than on the quality of the music itself.
Do you have any advice for aspiring songwriters?
Just do it. The biggest thing I have struggled with. I’m still struggling with trying to write a perfect song, not just a song.
If you try to write a hit every time you sit down, you will never write. Write every day, even if it is bad, doesn’t make sense, or you don’t want anyone else to hear it. Perfection is not attainable, and thank God because perfect is boring!!
What is the topic of your current project?
I think this project is a reflection on previous relationships from when I was younger, thinking retrospectively about them with a more mature lens. I won’t lie, it isn’t the happiest of records, but in many ways, it is freeing because, when you are in the middle of these life events where you feel you can’t breathe and you will never surface for air, knowing that it will be ok in the end, allows a different perspective when you are writing.
What are your hobbies?
Funnily enough, I love going to gigs and listening to new artists. I also love sports, both playing and watching!
What do you do aside from this profession?
I run my own business as my full-time job and am a happy mother to three cats.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
“It’s never too late for now.” Sorry for the bad “30 Rock” reference. In all seriousness, the message is sound. I sat on my dream of writing and performing our music for nearly 25 years because I thought I hadn’t earned the right to do it or it was too late for me.
It took a global pandemic to wake me up, which is crazy. I hope that no matter what your dreams or desires in life are, it doesn’t take another global pandemic for you to realize them. Life is far too short to not do what makes you happy.
