MYRNA is an independent soul-stress & songwriter from Bergen in Norway and have just released a sassy music video “Beautiful” from her 2016-sophomore album “Story Of I” ! Beautiful is meant to boost your self confidence and is a summer hit that will make you feel sexy!
We recently had conversation with her about her recent releases and her music career. You will surely enjoy the conversation we are sharing below.
Twist Online : First Tell us a little about the starting of your music career.
MYRNA : I´ve been singing and performing since I was 7 years old, but I guess the first record I was featured on (2003) was when more people and the industry started noticing me for real. After that I decided to be bold, follow my dreams and become an artist full time. I started spending more time in the studio, performing, writing songs and collaborating with other artists and bands, and I still do!
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release “Beautiful” ?
MYRNA : Beautiful is my brand new cool and sassy music video with loads of girl power. I love it! It´s a track from my sophomore album «Story Of I» which I released in February. The song is catchy, timeless and funky with a disco-vibe to it, and is meant to boost your self confidence and make you smile and feel sexy, perfect for summer and to brighten your day.
Twist Online : What’s do you enjoy more songwriting or singing?
MYRNA : I absolutely love performing! Being on stage is where I feel home, and it´s my playground. But I find that there´s something missing if I´m not being creative too, and songwriting is kind of my way of dealing with shit in life, good or bad, so I think I´d be an unhappy person without it.
Twist Online : How was your fan’s response to your 2016-sophomore album “Story Of I” ?
MYRNA : My fans are truly the best! I’ve only received love and support and they tell me the new music is more soulful than ever before, and catchy too, which means the world to me. If my music reaches their hearts, then I am content.
Twist Online : Are you inspired of someone in music industry?
MYRNA : People with passion and drive inspires me! Someone who doesn’t give up, dares to take risks and works hard to reach their goals.
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
MYRNA : I´m open to all kinds of music, and hate labeling things, but I find myself really «feeling» soulful tunes and powerful vocals (like Jill Scott), or smooth, jazzy singers (like Melody Gardot). I also love funky bands (like Earth Wind and Fire). When I was a teenager my 2 top albums were Metallica and Wu Tang Clan. So it really depends on what mood I´m in. I prefer going to gigs with live bands that play soul or funk though, maybe because that´s what I mostly do myself.
Twist Online : What’s your goal in life you want to achieve next?
MYRNA : I want to do more of what I´m already doing, which is performing, writing and releasing music, only with much bigger budgets and productions, higher income, bigger venues and festivals and more touring/traveling. I want to see the world as I work with music. Bigger and better basically, although I´m not complaining, because I love life as it is, but it´s really important to have goals in life.
Twist Online : Any new project you are working on? When it will be released?
MYRNA : Right now I´m mostly focusing on playing concerts. I spent at least 3 years recording this album, so I´m so ready to share it with the world through live performances. But since I enjoy being relevant and productive, I might be releasing one more video this year, including a Christmas song. Projects are fun!
Twist Online : Are you on Social Media? Your fans would love to follow you.
MYRNA : Absolutely! I wouldn’t have come this far in my career without social media and my fans who follow and support me. My Snapchat is «myrnabraza», and that´s is where I share daily updates from backstage stuff, recordings and everyday life as a Norwegian artist. I also have a blog at www.myrnabraza.com where you´ll find links to all my music, videos and overview of upcoming gigs!
