Today on our Hot Seat we have a very promising artist Bianca Acosta. She recently released her debut single “No Gravity” that’s been appreciated largely. So lets have an interview with her.
Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your music career?
Bianca Acosta : I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember. My music career really started, though, at a performance I had about 3 years ago at a club in Chicago called Red Kiva. I was able to meet some people there that led me to the team I’m working with today.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you as an artist growing up?
Bianca Acosta : Growing up, so many artists inspired me like Mariah Carey, Selena, Alicia Keys, Marc Anthony, the list goes on and on.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release “No Gravity”?
Bianca Acosta : “No Gravity” is my debut single, out now on all digital media platforms. It was cowritten by myself and Courtney Graf, produced by Logic, vocal arranged by DeP, and mixed by Botts. It’s a very upbeat, positive track about that cloud 9 feeling you get when you’re with that special someone. It talks about that person making you feel like you’re floating or levitating because the connection is so strong.
Twist Online : Any particular reason for going for Pop/R&B as your music genre?
Bianca Acosta : R&B and Pop music was most of what I listened to growing up. I’m a 90’s kid, so the soul in 90’s r&b along with the fun poppy sounds of the early 2000’s really helped mold the sound that I want as an artist.
Twist Online : Do you need any kind of inspiration or any particular environment when writing a song?
Bianca Acosta : I really don’t need anything in particular when writing. Ideas come to me at the most random times like in the shower or on the plane when traveling. I feel like you can find inspiration essentially anywhere if you really look.
Twist Online : What are your future goals as a music artist?
Bianca Acosta : The sky’s the limit for me. I want to inspire as many people as I can through my music and let people know that following your dreams can actually become a reality. I do want to inspire outside of music, too. I would love to get involved in different associations and orgs like the ALS Association.
Twist Online : You are also brand ambassador of an organization. Tell us about your experience with them?
Bianca Acosta : Yes, I am a brand ambassador for a non for profit organization called The Future Is. It’s an org designed to educate and empower millennials to take an interest towards societal matters, like the environment and ways to help preserve it. The really cool part about the org is that we don’t want to just lecture our youth about how to help the planet, but instead reach out to them through music and entertainment. So I get to do what I love while leaving an important message out there.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new projects? When it will be released?
Bianca Acosta : I am currently working on my EP. My first 2 singles, “No Gravity” and “My Air,” will be on it as well as some other great tracks. The release date is still TBA but I will definitely keep everyone posted as we come closer.
Twist Online : Are you active on social media? How you can be followed?
Bianca Acosta : I can be followed on all social media @BAcostaMusic. I also post info and updates on my website, bacostamusic.com.
