Describe your sound in 3 words
Genuine, heart-felt, ethereal
Tell us a few things about your new work ” Elevation Of Luv”. What is the main idea behind it?
My new EP ”Elevation Of Luv” talks about love on the personal level, with tracks like “Patterns”, “Fairytales and lies”, “Honest” that speak more about personal love experiences, specifically heartbreak; but also talks about love on the interpersonal level, with tracks like ”Hope is the true north” which is more about unconditional love and joining forces as a collective, or the track “Queen” that is made to empower women.
It also makes reference to the elevation of me, the artist ”Mya Luv”, and my development and growth on this life journey.
”Elevation Of Luv” is an EP that I wrote, composed and co-produced. It encompasses many genres as I’ve been influenced by so many growing up (from pop, soul/rnb, to jazz and folk)
Which song of the EP is your favorite?
I believe “Honest” is my favorite. I always love singing ballads and getting vulnerable. I feel like it is a way for me to get close and intimate with the listener
Your dream collaboration?
My dream collaboration would probably be ”Ms. Lauryn Hill”, it’s a woman that inspired me greatly in so many ways and her words and lyrics always resonate with me.
What would you change in the music industry?
I would like for the music industry to be a safe place for artists to speak and explore their truth and authenticity. Often times, we find ourselves attempting to follow trends and popular music movements and themes. However, I believe that an artist’s best work is when it comes from their authentic self and making the music that they truly love, and that’s when it has the power to resonate the most with the audience, when they feel that the energy is real.
In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?
I imagine people listening to my music in a calm state of mind and a peaceful space. I feel like it’s the best state to get immersed into my universe and fully grasp it.
When was the last time you danced?
It has been way too long since I last danced. Funnily, I’ve been thinking about getting back into it in the past days and finding some dance teachers. Dancing is so freeing and I would love to incorporate into my daily life and music.
