Hey! So excited to be chatting with you!
Hey TMI! Thank you for having me, I’m excited to answer these questions! Let’s dive in
Do you have any more new music coming out soon?!! If so, Can you spill any details on what your supporters can look forward to next year?!?
I certainly do! I have a single coming out August 6th, called “Copy & Paste”. After that, I
will have more singles coming out a few months after so keep your ears open until then;)
Do you have a creative say in your music? Did you help write your new songs?
Well…I have the only creative say in my music haha.
Anyways, I write all of my songs by myself and never written with other people. As of
now, I don’t really plan for that to change. I do want to write songs for other artists in the
future, but I feel like my songs should be kept to myself at least for now.
What led you to pursue music as a career?
For my entire life, my passion for music was so strong that I never imagined doing
anything else. My life kind of led me to this point where I always assumed music is what I
would be. After introducing myself to songwriting, I felt that my life was spicier. That was
the only way I could describe it back then, but now I realize that that’s what it felt like to
discover my purpose.
Where did your love of music come from?
It’s really rare for someone to not love music, I personally decided to take it further. My
mom is an excellent music critic and so she couldn’t stand baby music, so when I was a
baby, I would mostly listen to The Beatles, Alicia Keys, MIKA, Amy Winehouse, and so
many more legends like these guys. The only movies that were being played on our tv
were music documentaries. I specifically remember seeing John, George, and Paul
playing the guitar on TV while begging my mom to start playing it. I couldn’t because my
fingers were too little since I was 3. Libi (my twin sister) and I both started playing piano
at 5 years old, but I still wanted to play the guitar. 3 years later I finally began, and the
rest is history I guess?!
What’s it feel like to be releasing your own original music?
It feels right, it feels like it’s meant to be. My whole life I remember listening to songs and
wanting to write some of my own. It’s satisfying too because I really got everything I
wanted in terms of the production and the live players; it’s a complete oeuvre. I’m
especially proud of the singles I’m going to be releasing from now on because I had a
great team behind it that really listened to what I was looking for. It makes me so happy
that the purpose of these songs I wrote alone in my bedroom are being fulfilled.
Will there be a music video for your new single? If so, can you tell us about the concept of the
Yes there is!! How fun is that to say?
The music video for Copy and Paste is very simple, so it would be focused on all of the
intensity in the lyrics, as well as my and Libi’s face. The song itself is fierce and
somewhat angry, so I decided it should be black and white. Libi is in the video with me to
emphasize the message of “how dare you? You did this to not one person, but two.”
What do you want your message to be towards your fans? What do you want your fans to take
away from your music and shows?
Woah… fans.. That’s a funny word. Because a fan sounds like a one-way street, and I
want them to know that I admire them too. I’m their friend playing music for them. Does
that make sense? I’m a fan of the space where my friends and I get to share our passions
and support one another.
What’s something your fans don’t know about you?
I am highly afraid of squirrels. I’m serious, it’s actually really bad. I always think that
they’re going to jump on me. If I see one around I have to duck down behind my mom or
Libi. I have squirrel-a-phobia.
What do you want your fans to know if they ever see you in public?
I want them to know that I’ll probably be as nervous as them, so they don’t have to worry
about being cool. Also, it makes my day talking to people who appreciate what I do just
as much as them meeting me, so they should know that I love having long
conversations. Heck, we can exchange life stories if they want.
Why do you think social media is so important for teen artists like yourself?
The best thing about social media is that you get to put yourself out there, no matter who
you are and what you do. You get to give the world a taste of your persona and what you
believe in. Nowadays, it’s pretty much the main way people know you exist. You think
about the greatest artists of today’s world, they’ve all been discovered by the media.
People are constantly scouting for talent online, who knows who might find you?
my instagram is @iamneska.
What would you say is your biggest dream/goal right now?
It might sound a bit cheesy, but I’m really just going with the flow. I’m willing to receive
anything that might happen, because I truly believe that anything that is meant to
happen, happens. One thing I can say is that I would really like to perform on stage right
now, there is nothing better than that adrenaline on stage. I’m excited to put my creations
into the world and give a little piece of me.
Any last things you want to tell your supporters?
Thank you for reading my answers, I hope you found them motivating in some way, or
even just interesting. It’s really nice to know that people are open to discover new talents
in the world and build relationships with people like me.
Know that you’re never alone, there’s lots of people who truly care about you. If you're
reading this sentence right now, I care about you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to do this interview!
Peace out 😀
