Q: When did you start writing/producing music – and what or who inspired you?
I started writing poems that I turned into songs. I literally woke up one morning, when I was 6 years of age, and I started playing the keyboard/piano, composed music, sang my poems and I just never looked back. I was inspired by my own personal experiences. Growing up, childhood memories, good and bad, the pain from my past inspired me too. Birds inspire me, Books, Music, People of Good morals and values. But the people who inspire me the most : (1) My only surviving parent – Reverend Owen, (My Dad). (2) My kids and (3) My husband and manager: Mr. Denzil Celin Gounden.
Q: You seem to pull in musical styles from Afro house to R & B on your new Album which is great by the way. What influenced it?
I’m a non-conformist. I don’t Lead by Following. My musical inclination allows me to go beyond unforeseen and unknown boundaries. And because Music, to me is a Natural Gift, you will find me in almost every genre. That is what inspired my debut album – Breaking Dawn.
Q: So I’m really loving the hit house track: Azange Ndambona what is the song about?
Azange Ndambona means: ” I’ve never seen someone like this before. Someone so kind, so genuine and so true.” This song is way ahead of its time, as it is a proven prophecy. I wrote this song and asked my late mom for her blessings and advice, in my current relationship and marital union. And she peacefully passed on, after saying Yes and giving us her blessings to marry and settle down.
Q: So what label are you currently under? or are you an independent Artist.
I am an independent artist, under No Label.
Q: I saw that just this summer, you played a few shows and are all over the radio, any future plans you’d like fans to know about?
That’s a great question!!! I’d love to do a World Tour. So that I can fully engage, embrace and inspire the Masses, as they do to me.
I want to be out there in the Universe, spreading Positive messages through music and song. To get my Brand known and to remind others that life is not so bad. As I am a living testimony to that.
Q: Do you have any future collaborations coming up or anyone you’d like to work with?
There are far too many Legends and Undiscovered Geniuses to mention. My life – long dream is to share a stage with Patti LaBelle, Anita Baker, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats, Angie Stone, The Weekend, Pharrell, Angie Stone, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Lauren Hill and to have an album produced by Quincy Jones, Babyface, Darkchild and Timberland to mention a few. I’d also like to feature on songs with some of my newly made Facebook Friends, DJs, and Producers across the Globe.
Q: So I ask every new artist on the scene about staying power where do you see yourself in the future?
I see myself empowering and nurturing our up and coming artists. The new generation of music, to guide them and share everything I know. The best thing to do is to educate and disseminate Positive energy, Powerful knowledge, and Valuable Resources to kids in broken homes, underprivileged communities and to motivate our Youth. Giving them Music to hold on to and focus on. Shifts and reduces the pressures of life on the dark side of our existence on Earth. Example: Criminal Activities, Teenage Pregnancies, Gangsterism, Peer Pressure, Alcohol, and Drug Abuse, etc. So I’d like to open up a music academy, to harness these souls and talents. Because I just love what I do and helping someone else, is always so refreshing and rewarding. It brings my heart Pure Joy at the end of every day.
Q: Lastly I’d like to say thank you for sitting down with us here at My House Radio. I see great things for you in the future.
Once again, I’d like to thank you very much for taking this time to get to know me and introducing me to the Masses. I do hope that I can come to perform and visit your country soon! I trust you will enjoy Breaking Dawn and let’s dance again on MyHouse Radio!
