Exposed Vocals: So tell us your story. Where did you grow up? What made you decide to become an artist?
It's hard to be an artist but it's not impossible. I'm from Argentina. I'm 22 and I have been fighting to reach this more than a few years. I remember that my parents always put Queen to my sister's and me. The passion they had, the aura they spread made me get impressed. Thanks of that, Freddie Mercury became to be my muse, my inspiration and favorite artist. I started singing when I was six and never stoped since then. I remember the fist time I sang on a stage at that age, we were in a chorus with a few partners and the teacher always made me sing something along. Then when i was 8, I had my first guitar. I remember that I cried, it is my treasure. With it I composed all my songs and it made me feel stronger when I was sad or in pain. I always wanted this. I wanted to have an opportunity to grow and to sing the rest of my life. To share with people what makes me happy. Music had filled my life, it's my strength.
Exposed Vocals: Since everyone was a start-up once, can you give any smaller or local bands or artists looking to get gigs and airplay some tips?
Let me tell you that if you have felt that everything is falling apart and that you don't have the strength to keep going, it's the right time to raise your head and keep fighting. Successful people is the one who had fighted the most and never gave up. I know it may be tiring the road, but remember, you have a goal to reach and giving up is not an option. Another thing I want to tell you, don't listen to people who want to harm you. Always is going to be a person who wants to see you down for different reasons. You are amazing in what you do. If someone tries to broke you don't let them. If someone try to help you to raise, let them. If the comments are hurtful but with fundaments is because that person wants the best for you. Dont be arrogant, listen to them. They will make you grow as an artist and person. I hope all your dreams come true and someday share a stage with some amazing artist I had listen around here. Keep fighting and dreaming! Dreams can come true if you wish it.
Exposed Vocals: Do you ever make mistakes during performances? How do you handle that?
Like any artist, yes I have done. The best way to handle it is to keep going with the performance no matter what. Sometimes I mix up some lyrics or I get tune out in a note, but the people doesn't even notice because I keep doing my work as if nothing happens. It's obvious we're never going to be 100% satisfied with our performance and we're going to search our weak spots as perfectionist we are. But let me tell you, if you are not going to use that spots to raise, then don't search it. Because that's going to make you feel insecure on the stage. And that's not what you need in there.
Exposed Vocals: Do you tour? Anything interesting happen on tour that you think our readers would enjoy hearing about?
As I'm starting too I didn't tour with a show. Yes, I have been going to another States from my country to sing in some events and so. I have done a few shows of mine in the city which I'm living now; and let me tell you that it was the most amazing experience I had. The people screaming your name and supporting you with their applause. The comforting sensation when someone screams to you to sing another one. It has no price, it's the best thing that can happen to an artist.
Exposed Vocals: Any planned studio upgrades? What are you working with now?
Actually I keep working in my music to make it have a meaning and a stake in society. Soon I'll be selling out my first EP with my boyfriend and producer, Pablo Almada.
Exposed Vocals: How do you find ways to promote your music? What works best for you?
My way to promote is simple, I share with my friends and known. Then they help me to grow. I will love to find a way to share it with more people and share my passion for music with them.
Exposed Vocals: If you could perform anywhere and with any artists (Dead or Alive) where and who would it be with? Why?
Freddie Mercury, no doubts. As I said before he was my inspiration to become an artist. I would loved to go to a concert of him. And it would have been a honour to share a stage with all his passion showing and his powerful voice next to me. The first song I sang was Somebody To Love, and is like an anthem. I love that song and I put it when I feel down or depressed and it makes me feel better in a second. There's a lot of reasons why I love Freddie and I'm thankful with my parents for showing him to me.
Exposed Vocals: So, what’s next? Any new upcoming projects that you want to talk about?
As English is not my first language it takes me double effort to make lyrics. But I keep writing and producing to do something what people will talk about. I want to make meaningful songs and to share with the world the reasons why I want to keep doing this the rest of my life.
Exposed Vocals: If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing?
I don't see myself doing something else. Like Nietzsche said "Life without music will be a mistake" and he was so accurate. I can't imagine me being in an office the rest of my life. If it's something else it will keep being something artistic that's sure.
Exposed Vocals: What should fans look forward to in the next year or so?
If everything goes on it's way, my first single. And if God wants, my first album.
Exposed Vocals: Any Shout-outs?
Well, how to start? First of all I want to thank my family who have been there for me no matter what and always supported me because they know I love to do this. I want to thank to all my friends who always listen to my insecurities and help me to raise and keep holding on. I want to thank my boyfriend who has helped me to keep my head up and teached me a lot about music. I want to thank too to all the people who had supported me in this. The one's who had been always and the others who are starting to do it now. To all and everyone, thank you! Music is my life and without you would be impossible to reach my dream. Thank you!
