Tell us what who was you biggest musical influence(s) growing up?
My parents were my biggest musical influences. My dad was always singing and whistling and my mom would teach me little melodies on the piano. We were always playing music in the house and we also had family karaoke nights.
What inspired you to start music?
I’ve been singing ever since I could talk really. I knew from a young age that music was something I wanted to Pursue. When I was really young, I use to put a bunch of makeup on and dress up like I was going to walk on the red carpet. I was always singing and dancing.
Do you plan to release a record soon?
I’d like to record an album in the future but my focus right now is getting out more singles.
If you could have any other artist as a guest vocal on a song, who and why?
Robbie Rosen because he has the smoothest gorgeous voice I’ve ever heard. He is also a kind person who really inspires me.
With so much going wrong in the world today, what cause/organization is close to you?
Organizations that promote care for the earth and animals.
What was your writing process?
I write a lot from personal experience and find inspiration from the people in my life. Sometimes I’ll get a few lyric ideas in my head and I’ll sing it a few times over some chords on the piano or acoustic guitar. Or sometimes, I’ll play around on my guitar or piano and think of a melody first then lyrics. Also, I’ll write about an emotional event that just occurred.
What has been your biggest accomplishment to date?
Building a fan base with my original music. I’ve always been in cover bands, so it’s a great feeling to know that people are enjoying my own work.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In a nice modern house with a lot of plants and still creating music to share with people.
What story do want to tell with your music?
Stories about love, relationships and self development.
Lastly, what do you want to tell our readers and your fans?
I have some exciting collaborations due to release soon and I’ll be posting updates about them so if you wanna come along on this journey with me follow me on Instagram @kathana.music
