What's your favorite thing to do when you're all alone?
Honestly, when I'm alone, I just love to chill. I make tea, take out something tasty from the fridge and turn on YouTube. It is also possible that I turn on my favorite music and start dancing like a mad animal.
What’s your creative process?
As a rule, I start humming some melodies, then I take a dictaphone so as not to forget anything and record my voice, then I start to think in what style and with what instruments this melody would sound good, then I sit down at the piano and find the necessary chords, additional melodies, and so on. Generally, the next day I record the instrumental and the voice. When a song is ready and sounds the way it should sound, an associative visual series arises in my head, I write down some of my ideas in notes, then compose a script, look for locations and select images - everything is pretty straightforward.
What are important things in life?
Everybody probably decides for themselves what is important for them, for me personally it is peace of mind and satisfaction with life. Life satisfaction encompasses satisfaction with health, personal life, professional activities. And for each person, these criteria are different.
How did you get into music?
I’ve always loved to sing. I constantly listened to "The Beatles" in the car, I sang along with Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin, Pink, when I was very little. At the age of about 5-6 years old, I came up with some crazy songs in a fictional language (by the way, one of these melodies is included in my album, which, I hope, is coming this year). At the age of 11, I decided that I would write songs. It was a conscious age when I wrote my first song. In parallel with a regular school, I studied at a music school. I remember that teachers in a regular school constantly forced me to play the piano or to sing something at school events. I also performed a lot with my music school, playing the piano. Sometimes I participated in various competitions and festivals, performing different songs. I have never done anything more meaningless in my life. After graduating from music school, I focused on creating my own music more and more.
What is the assumption that people make about you that’s totally wrong?
The problem is that people like to categorize things, divide them into good and bad, right and wrong, and so on. I've often heard that people thought I was just some pretty girl who was very arrogant. Usually I've never even spoken to people who've thought so. People who actually communicate with me understand that I am not dangerous and I am a good friend.
This is not a love story, this single is more about how a person can become a victim of abuse and not even notice how it started.
What is your single "Maybe" about?
The song "Maybe" is dedicated to a very unpleasant period of my life. This is not a love story, this single is more about how a person can become a victim of abuse and not even notice how it started. I didn’t love the person, I didn’t even like him, but because of my young age and lack of life experience, for some reason I constantly forgave things that cannot be forgiven and justified people who didn’t deserve even the first chance. The song is about awakening.
Love yourself and spend time with those people who deserve it and bring joy into your life.
Now I am working on my album from home and I hope you will hear it soon!
