Here we are at the BubbleGoth HQ, with Tina interviewing me after I gave her a MoonChild makeover♥♥ #goodtimes #MusicToMyEars
A lot of Moon Babies seem to keep wondering about the new music so I’ll give u guys another update♥
You know I just got out of a loooong major label relationship and even though being on a major comes with it’s own perks and it’s been a wild ride, it also comes with a lot of artistic restrictions, waiting around for releases that never happen and a whole lot of unnecessary stuff that has nothing to do with the music itself.
I freshly signed with Ultra and they are excited to release more “left” stuff so what I’m doing these days is sitting around in the BubbleGoth HQ, digging through the deepest corners of my soul, trying to remember who I was before I got jaded about the game of it all. I don’t want the big time if it comes at a cost of having to leave behind words I don’t really believe in for my grand children to listen to. I’m tired of the same old dribble on the radio and I wanna get as far as possible from that “must write a hit” and chart position mindset that massive corporations and media promote every day. It’s disempowering people and creating an illusion of competition and separation when in all reality, we are all just cells in the same body and this world could and should be heaven for all living things - celebrating ourselves and others.
Not that I’m gonna stop writing hooks, I’m just trying to write the kind of hooks that I haven’t heard before.
At this point I am working as a pop songwriter and a blogger every day, so I wouldn’t have to “make it work” as an artist to pay my rent. This new stuff I’m making is my precious baby that I wanna keep true and honest to the core without compromising anything.
Don’t get me wrong, I am super proud of Utopia but I am all about new and next. It breaks my heart that dance music wasn’t even on the radio when we made zero gravity so instead of being a pioneer, the label waited around for over a year and got enough balls to release it only after shit like that was already all over the place. The same with “walking on air”. There was no theatrics in pop music when that song came out. There was no Lady Gaga (who I think is a brilliant artist btw so don’t trip).
I don’t know where this current mindset is gonna take me but honestly, I don’t even care these days. I just wanna create something I am proud of and if the world is into it too then that’s great.
I have tons of new stuff ready and some VERY very exciting collaborations coming out starting this spring but I wanna give myself at least a few months now to explore and play around….I’ve been many different characters and colors so I am excited to dig real deep and see who it is that I will find this time around.
I wanna thank all you beautiful Moon Children for sticking around and supporting my journey. I hate to call you “fans” cause I hate the idea of separation and being looked up to/down upon….but you guys are the best “fans” in the world. I am so inspired by your insightful comments to my posts and the letters you send. I couldn’t believe the comments the other day when I posted about not wanting to take shit anymore. There was no haters, no bullshit…just amazing thoughts from 300 beautiful souls. You guys give me faith in humanity and I am so fucking blessed to share this moment in time with you.
Can’t wait to share the new vibrations…
Happy Valentines Day Moonchildren!
