Q & A’s with LV
Has music always been your first career choice?
Some kids grow up and want to be firefighters veterinarians doctors or lawyers. All I’ve ever wanted to do was be a popstar. I’ve been singing since I first learn how to speak and it’s the only thing that truly lights my fire so to speak. Music is my passion.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
To be patient and enjoy the process. I’ve been doing music for a very long time and it’s certainly the hardest business to break into. Trying to get noticed by the masses while trying to stay true to yourself not to mention stay above water with reality and the things that come with everyday life such as bills relationships friendships etc… it can become very difficult to stay on track and stay positive, enthusiastic and encouraged. So to remind myself that I’m still here living every day and to remember to enjoy life each day as I chase my dreams is very important so I don’t wake up one day and feel like it all passed me by.
Who contributed the most to your growth and success as an artist thus far?
People come and go, it’s definitely not a career for the week I can only truly credit myself the most for not quitting but besides that my Team, my manager, my glam squad has always been in my corner since day one and I’m very grateful for them.
What do you want to be known for?
I want to be known for making music that every demographic every age group and every person male or female can relate to. The thought of people in countries that I’ve never heard of loving my music is a goal that I know is going to feel so surreal when I reach it. Also I think just passing the bar and stepping out of your comfort zone making music debris the strongest of emotions to the surface whether it be super super depressing and sad or a record that makes you want to dance like you didn’t know you could.
What inspires you musically?
Inspiration is all around us. It comes from emotions I’m inspired by my experiences my friends experiences people in movies that I see going through the motions, it all gives me something to write about and something to express and challenge my writing to pen it in a way that’s super metaphorical and creative yet so clear.
Are you working on any new music right now?
I have a new single dropping on January 24 featuring DDG which I’m super super excited about it’s called “Done wit it.” We’re dropping the visual on YouTube the same day and I think it’s a record that everyone male and female will love. Definitely check that out!
If you could pick any artist, which career would you follow as a blueprint to your success?
I think it’s tough to say that there’s a blueprint to this because every artist has their own story and the ones who make it all made it in a different way it seems. The one thing that everyone seems to have in common is that they went through a few bad situations to get where they are. I’ve already experienced those myself learn those mistakes and trust and believe that the winds are coming for me this year. But I would definitely love to be at a status similar to that of Ariana Grande, Halsey, and Selena Gomez. Not to say that my music on my sound is like there’s I just mean on a global status I want to travel the world spreading my music.
