Into the Outside Box – Turn It Around [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

Found it tomorrow

Too new to be old and too old to be new. Tell us a few things about your creative process and the main idea behind Turn It Around.

My creative process is a mysterious thing, with the only reliable comparison feeling something like a portal opening up above my head and funneling in a bunch of energy and ideas that somehow come together on the page, sometimes instantaneously. Turn It Around culminates the transformation and glimpses of self-awareness that got me to where I am today. Change is a difficult thing to accept, even if it involves becoming the very person you’ve always wanted to be. This song became a testament to that in its own playful, haunt you from your core kind of way.

What is the “key” to unlock unseen doors?

I think the key to unlocking unseen doors starts with being honest with yourself, no matter how uncomfortable that may feel at the time. When you can look at that without running away, you prove to yourself that you’re capable of handling more, and that’s when the doors start opening in surprising and creative ways.

Favourite album of the past year?

I honestly can’t name a favorite album of the past year…that’s part of the reason why I’ve been writing a lot of music lately. Rather than complaining about not being inspired, I like to create my own inspiration and see where it takes me.

What would you change in the music industry?

I think it’s easier to answer what I wouldn’t change about the music industry, and that would be the blending of different styles that we’re seeing across the board. Latin fusion is a perfect example of that, and I’m excited to see how the industry responds to this.

Which book should we read while listening to your music?

I’m usually doing one or the other, reading or listening to music, but if you like doing both at the same time, I’d go with Women Who Run With the Wolves.

What is the one habit/thing you cannot live without?

A part of me wants to say weed, but I know that doesn’t sound too responsible, so I’ll say meditation instead, which is honestly the best high, and I know it.

Thank you!
