Answer: “Wild Child”
the freedom and memories that were made while driving around with your friends.
Lamitschka:a , and was a ?
Answer: My friends and
family have ALWAYS been major supporters in my career! They’ve never once
expressed doubt or opinions of thinking I needed to give up on my dream.
In fact, they’ve encouraged me to work harder and smarter when I’m going
through hard times. They are the best!
Answer: I think it’s an
amazing thing to create something from NOTHING. And then watch that something
evoke emotion in others. It’s a powerful and healing process! Not only is it an
outlet for me, but I also get to help others celebrate the good times and
hopefully help them get through the hard ones. It’s an honor and it’s what
continues to inspire me.
Answer: Yes, it’s a really
HARD path to choose, but somebodies gotta do it, so why not me? Whether I’ve
got one listener (my mom) or an entire arena, I will never stop creating. I
truly love it so I think it makes it easier to push through the hard times. I
don’t think of it as an “end goal”…I think of it as ME. I keep
creating and the audience will either grow or not. And that’s okay.
Answer: To me, an icon is
someone who stays true to themselves, but isn’t afraid to break the rules of
music and try new things. And also someone who is a role model and can use their
platform to spread positivity in the world. Someone who isn’t afraid to show
the mistakes and shares the lessons from them.
Answer: As an indie artist, the greatest
challenge is having to wear many different “hats”. It can easily
throw your focus off when trying to multi task too much. It’s a catch 22. You
need to be willing to do several different “jobs”, yet know when to
focus in on ONE task and not let it inhibit your creative side. Knowing
when to be the writer, the booking agent, the marketing team, etc. But at the
end of the day, it’s about the music. The right music will find it’s way no
