So upon my exclusive work with various content creators from the YouTube world I’ve decided to reach out to a fellow You Tuber I’ve followed for some time now, and it is through their work that I have enjoyed. It is through the YouTube community that I’ve connected with and felt curiosity and learn more about this person. Her picture below this:
The Interview as it follows:
- How did you get started? First initial step to becoming a musician?
A: At the age of 12 I became obsessed with Avril Lavigne. She was just getting popular and I couldn’t stop listening to her music. I wanted to do everything Avril did, in other words, I asked for a guitar for my birthday, got guitar lessons and started writing and singing songs. This is at the age where you can spend hours playing, without it feeling like work. From there on, I started to love music because I liked it, not because Avril did.
- Did you ever think of becoming this popular on You Tube?
A: Honestly, I don’t think I can consider myself “big” on YouTube. Nowadays, you have to have at least half a million subscribers to call someone big and successful on the internet. That’s not to say that the numbers I have now are not impressive (43,000 subscribers as of March 2015). For me, it’s amazing to think that so many people are interested enough to want to see and hear more. It’s extra motivation to keep doing what I love because I know there are people out there that I can share my songs with.
- If you were to do something different besides from music, what would that be?
A: Most likely doing something creative. Perhaps working at a creative company brainstorming ideas for commercials or designing websites. I can never know for sure, but something along those lines.
- What was your favorite piece you’ve performed?
A: Currently, I’m really proud of my “scientist” and “skinny love” covers, they can both be found on YouTube.
- What is your favorite original? When creating music, what is your thought process? How do you come to making your final product?
A: It changes every other day. I create new ones, they become my favorite for a while and then I get tired of them. Recently, I got a great compliment from someone on an original song called “Burned Out”. I played this at a local open mic, the lady approached me and she couldn’t stop talking about how much she loved it, so I’m pretty proud of that one!
- Pertaining to your musicianship skills, are you the only musician in your family? If so, what does your family think of your music? Do they accept and support? If music runs in your family how did they become musicians?
A: My mom used to sing a little but not anymore. My dad is in a band and plays the organ. He’s been playing it his whole life; I’m not sure how he rolled into it, to be honest!
- Final questions in series: Is there anything you would like to do besides from being a musician? What are your overall thoughts on You Tube? Do you think You Tube will ever end and something else to replace it? We live in a world where connecting with other people is in the curiosity of our human nature, with that being said do you think your fans/viewers have followed you because they are curious about your style of music? And what have you learned from your viewers?
A: I do think YouTube will end, but not anytime soon. It seems like they’ve established themselves pretty well and they’re only looking to expand. The company is too big to disappear overnight. I personally love the site, because it gives me the opportunity to share my music and build an audience. I think viewers know very well what they do and don’t like, so they follow my music because they like the style. I think if you’re curious about something, you go and learn about it. Then only when you decide you like it, you start to follow.
