A little after 7pm at ID Fest Mansfield, Eva Simons‘ tour manager, Jay, led us to a tiny dressing room behind the iHome Stage.
Describe what you do in one sentence.
►I want you to take over control.
Your favorite moment?
►Seeing people go mental to my music.
What’s the best part about the industry?
►Traveling and always having new energy. The crowds at festivals are always interested in hearing new stuff and seeing you there.
What initially peaked your interest in music?
►I was classically trained on piano and my parents were musicians. I’ve done everything possible in the music industry, and I love the energy of house music.
Can you remember the turning point that made you realize, “this is it?”
►I can’t remember not making any music; I did commercials as a kid and started making money when I finished conservatory.
What are you working on aside from the ID tour?
►The release of my single “I Don’t Like You” one month ago went well. I also have a new single coming out soon; getting Top40 would be nice, but it’s all about making great music.
What track are you loving right now?
►Zedd feat. Matthew Koma – Spectrum.
One piece of advice you can offer to an aspiring artist is…
►Be yourself. Stop searching to find yourself. Even when I’m writing a song, I ask myself, “Do I feel these lyrics?”
