If I had to think about it, I would say it would be my all around skill-set as an artist. I am well versed on stage and off. I have a good grasp on the business aspects, and I can push a button or two behind the boards, so to speak. I also enjoy writing for other artists. My writing sets me apart because I use a simple language that paints a tangible picture. People of all ages can find some way to connect to my songs. I really like that.
I feel honored to even be thought of in the same vein as such legendary artists. I can only continue to strive for similar success in being able to touch lives by the multitudes.
In your Bio it states, “Her music tells stories of Love, Pain, Struggle and Personal Triumph”. Are these feelings that you have experienced or just love to write and sing about?
I write from my gut, and I sing from my whole heart. Alot of my songs are from personal experiences, yet others come from the story that the music wants me to tell. I like to use my imagination, so sometimes it’s cool to write from a persective that I haven’t lived personally. For example, If I’m writing a love song for a male artist to sing, I try to think of what I’d like to hear a man say to me romantically.
Thank you, Patrice for the compliment! Singing relaxes MY soul! In the studio, I can build and get the creative juices flowing, so when I’m finished I feel accomplished. On stage, I can literally fly. There is no greater feeling to me then to be able to open my mouth and just soar. Nothing negative lives there. When I’m through, I am certainly able to relax, so it feels good to think that my audience is able to do the same.
