Here is our recent interview with a very talented musician and singer ‘ KAIYA ‘. She released her debut single ‘Games’ few days back.
Twist Online : First of all introduce yourself to our readers.
KAIYA : Hi! My name is KAIYA. I’m a NYC based singer and musician, working in indie/pop, electronic style. On April 7th I released my debut single “GAMES’ and now I’m working on my next single and also planning to have my debut EP released later this fall.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
KAIYA : My family was not musical, but they always appreciated music, especially European music. Every Sunday morning we would wake up to songs by Celentano :slightly_smiling_face:
I’ve always wanted to sing, even since I was 4 years old. And I sang everywhere and everything. But starting to do music professionally is something that has happened to me quite recently, when I met songwriter and producer ÅMBE. There was an immediate connection and inspiration, and we’d started to work on music together about a year ago.
Twist Online : Tell us about your debut single “GAMES”?
KAIYA : The music and lyric for “GAMES” were born about a few months ago, then the process of production and recording for about two months. And then I felt like “wow, I can’t believe it’s happening to me.. My dream is coming true!”. We released the single on April 7th, and then a beautiful lyric video for it.
Twist Online : What kind of response have you received from the release?
KAIYA : So far we’ve been getting pretty great response from audience and music blogs. Looks like people really love it! And it makes me so happy! :slightly_smiling_face:
Twist Online : What attracts you more performing on stage or working in studios?
KAIYA : It’s two totally different experiences. And I love them! Right now I’m doign both, working on some new music in the studio, and also getting ready for my life performances.
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
KAIYA : The range of my music interests is quite wide: from almost classical performances by Serge Gainsbourg, Songs by Nina Simone, till Amy Winehouse, and till Daughter and Banks.. And much more:)
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve as a music artist?
KAIYA : One step at a time, but to get it all Lol. Honestly, I’d love to just simply be able to create great music and perform it, and hopefully to have people love it.
