What inspired you to start singing?
Music has always been a huge part of my life. I remember singing with my mom in the car since I was a toddler riding in my carseat. I can’t really say what inspired me to start singing because I’ve been singing since I was a baby. Lol
You just released your new single “No Brakes”!! How excited are you to get this new song out into the world? & What do you hope your supporters will think of the new song?
No Brakes is my second single and I co-wrote with Brat. I’m so excited to work with them for the very first time and it was such a great experience. It’s a super upbeat, summer song and I can’t wait to share it with my supporters. I thing they’re going to love it as much as I did producing and singing it. I really hope that they can connect with the lyrics.
Can you tell us the backstory of this song? Is it from a real experience?
I guess most of us have had a crush on a cute boy or girl that they liked at some point! Yes, I’ve had crushes before, haha. No brakes is about those feelings, it’s a happy, upbeat song, perfect for the summer!
You also have more music coming out in 2019!! Can you spill any details on what your supporters can look forward to next year?!?
Oh my gosh!! So excited for the new music coming soon! You guys are going to love it! Super awesome song collabs. I can’t ruin the surprise, you guys will have to wait to see! It’s worth the wait. ♡
Do you have a creative say in your music? Did you help write all your new songs?
Absolutely! It’s so important for me to be able to connect to the lyrics and the message I’m singing. I’ve been extremely fortunate to write music with some super talented people.
What’s it feel like to be releasing your own original music?
It feels amazing!! There’s nothing more rewarding than hearing my supporters (my sophienatics) singing my songs! Being able to somehow connect with them on a personal level through music. Music is a universal language, and it brings all of us together.
Will there be a music video for your new single? If so, can you tell us about the concept of the video 🙂
The answer is yes!! I will have the lyric video and the music video. We are still in the early stages of the music video production, so there’s not a lot I can share, but I can say that is going to be a super cool summer-themed video with colorful visuals! Stay tuned!
Is there anyone you want to thank that’s helped you get to where you are today?
So many people who have been so incredibly supportive since the beginning of my career. My amazing Sophienatics, my family, super talented people I collaborated musically or on my channel and acting who inspired me every step of the way.
What do you think makes your fan community/fandom different from others?
I don’t know if my fans are different than other fandoms, but I do know that they’re very special, talented and they have so much LOVE in their hearts. They show so much compassion and support towards each other. The SOPHIENATICS are such an awesome fandom! We all believe that love is stronger than hate.
How would you describe your fans? – what’s three words you would use to describe your fans?
Loving, Talented and Unique
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?
Be yourself, love yourself, your flaws make you unique and special.
Do you have any preshow rituals that help you get pumped up to meet your supporters?
It’s always so exciting for me to perform live and interact with my fans. Seeing them singing my songs along with me is pretty amazing! I’m always happy to meet them. I don’t have many rituals, just staying hydrated and some vocal warm ups before a live performance is always a good idea.
Are you planning any shows to promote your new music?
It’s in the works! I would most definitely love the idea of traveling around the country or even the world to connect with my Sophienatics. That’s actually one of my dreams.
What is it like performing in front of your fans? Are you excited to start performing your own music live!?!
It’s the best feeling!! I get to feel their energy, hear them singing my songs, talk to them about how the music inspired them. It’s just such an amazing experience every time. I have performed a few times last year in some YouTube conventions and I can’t wait to do more and more live shows.
Many of your supporters are starstruck when they meet you Have you ever been starstruck?
Are you kidding? Of course! More times than I can count! Lol There are so many people who inspired me artistically. My heart was beating so fast when I first met Liza Koshy last year. She was so kind and sweet!! I’m a huge fan!!
What would you say is your biggest dream/goal right now?
It’s a great thing to be able to do what you love for a living. I see myself acting and singing for the rest of my life, those are my true passions. I also want to be able to inspire my fans as they inspire me, continue to producing new music and work more intensively on my acting.
Any last things you want to tell your supporters?
I would like to say believe in yourself, pursue your dreams, and spread love and positivity around you and those you love. Thanks Teen Music Insider for this opportunity to connect with my fans and supporters. Peace 😉
