What is your name?
What is your genre of music?
Dark Pop / Adult Contemporary
Are you signed?
No, I’m an indie artist.
You have released your new single ‘Just Let Me Breathe’, tell us more about the single. What is the meaning behind the single?
This song is about being true to who you really are and not changing for what the world expects you to be
Describe the track in two words.
What was the writing process like?
Collaborating with Will Evans was so fun and it was different from my usual process. I usually create a song using my acoustic guitar or keyboard, and with this song him and I wrote it together through Zoom with no instrument!
What was the recording process like?
Will Evans produced and mixed the track in Austin, TX. I laid down vocals in Miami, he recorded his vocals there in Austin. We had Panorama Mixing and Mastering in Australia master the track.
Will we see a music video for the single?
Perhaps! I’m going to see how it does once it’s released and feel it out.
Will we see an EP or Album and if so, what can we expect?
Will Evans and I are already wrapping up another song that would fall in the same playlist as “Just Let Me Breathe”! That one I would release after the holidays to start off the year with a bang!
Do you have any online shows coming up?
I always try to go live at least one Friday of the month.
What else can we expect in 2020?
I co-wrote my first Christmas track with an incredibly talented artist, Monica Rizzio, who sang it and she will be releasing it November 27th!
Do you have any collaborations coming up with any upcoming artists?
Monica Rizzio and I wrote the Christmas track coming out in November and we also wrote a female empowerment song coming out in the near future. I also wrote a really fun retro r&b vibe female empowerment song with Marina Bennett who is absolutely wonderful and goes by the artist name LEEA. And of course Will Evans and I are going to continue working together to make some dark pop sexiness! Oh, and I can’t forget, I collaborated with two amazing artists, Iris Bonet who goes by Bonf1re and Theo Seidmon to do my first Latin Pop / Reggaeton track! I’m a Spanish girl so it was about time I stepped into that world! It was a blast working with them so I may be releasing that soon under a different moniker. Follow me on IG and FB to stay posted.
Would you be up for collaborations if other musicians wanted one with you?
Yes, of course! I always love connecting with passionate, like minded musicians who want to create awesome music! I’ve noticed when I get along with another songwriter and just have a good time talking to them we end up writing killer music!
Do you play any instruments?
I play guitar and I just started teaching myself the keys.
Who are your influences?
I’m big on Classic Rock like The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, U2, Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Pink Floyd, and the list goes on really. I also dig current music and I am continuously impressed and inspired by artists who put their hearts and soul into their music like Gabrielle Aplin, and Ane Brun. I’m stepping into the world of production so female producers have been really inspiring to watch and learn about like AG.
How do you get inspiration to write songs?
I get inspired to write usually when I have mess of emotions to deal with. I find writing really cathartic so I just let everything out when I write. I know a song is good when I cry while I”m writing it. This new track is not a sad one, so I didn’t cry writing it, but I did get the feels, and goosebumps especially in that bridge into the chorus! You gotta wait for it. I also get inspired to write after really connecting with people and their stories. When something they say resonates with me, or if I see something on TV that touches me, the wheels start turning and a song is born!
Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?
I see myself producing all of my own music, and hearing my songs on TV/FIlm and commercials. I also see myself being an advocate for other females in this industry to shine and I would offer as much guidance and support as I can for them so this industry can have a bunch of both men and women making amazing music!
When you’re not doing music, what do you do?
When I’m not making music I am running outside along the coast to the nearby black sand beach, which really helps me stay centred and grounded. I also love spending time with my friends and family who I feel have really been my biggest fans cheering me on even before I believed I could do it.
What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?
I really love Lana del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” and I think hearing that really pushed me to put myself out there and make something that can resonate with people the way that song resonated with me.
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
The best advice I’ve ever received came from my dad on numerous occasions actually, but the most recent being to move to Tenerife, Spain. This is where I found the courage to put my heart out for the world to see through my music.
What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?
My advice would be to always follow your gut, don’t fall for the hype, don’t trust just anyone so easily, and stay true to who you are as an artist because as long as they do that they will be proud of every decision and song they make.
What quote or saying do you always stick by?
John Lennon’s, “Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.”
Where in your hometown is a must go to visit?
The Teide! It’s the volcano on this island! It’s absolutely magical.
Your coming off tour;
1/ Where do you go first? To see my family
2/ Who do you see first? My two daughters, my husband, my parents, and of course my twin!
3/What do you eat first? Sushi!
When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget?
I can’t forget my black boots, Capo, water, a kiss from my hubby, and a celebratory drink after I finish!
