The queen doesn’t share personal info darling! I quite loved my childhood…that’s why I chose to never grow up don’t you know!
Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.
Majesty is based off of the Evil Queen. Anyone that knows anything about me knows I’m a Disney Geek above all. And a dramatic, fashionable Disney villain is right up my alley darlings! My musical background is my life. I can’t remember a time where I wasn’t singing or making music. My grandmother was an Opera singer, so the presence and love of music was just always there.
Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.
I like to refer my genre as dark decadence. Its got its roots in a dramatic cinematic rock sound but with a pop/dance sensibility to it. My latest release, Living in the Moonlight, is really a new generation song. Its about coming together in our differences to create the world we want to live in. The video is based on a vampire rave. Its celebrates all different people and shows how at the end of the day we are all the same.
Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.
This industry is definitely full of ups and down. People who lead you on, take you down the wrong creative path and try to steer you away from your artistic vision. But I think for me staying focused on that path of who I wanted to be and what I wanted to say was always what I fought for and how I got to the place I am now with my music.
Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.
The video was shot in a club in New York City. We had an amazing production team lead by Lynn Verlayne and John Engstrom and some awesome ravers starring in the video along side of me. As far as my production team, lead by my incredible creative producer and A&R Orion, I can finally say that I am exactly where I’ve worked so hard to be musically. We are creating the vision that I’ve always seen in my head for myself as an artist.
Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.
In the future I just want to be able to keep putting out the music that speaks to me and hopefully connects with others as well. Above all I want to be a positive, fun role model for young kids to embrace themselves for how great they are. That’s really important to me and is something I address in my upcoming song Queen of Hearts.
Everything. Music is my heart. Its the way that I express my emotion, I feel through music. Whether it is something from my life, a story that moves me or observing the world, there is inspiration found in everything, you just have to be willing to listen.
Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.
Being authentic. Never create a song that you think you are supposed to make, make the song that speaks to your soul. If you sing from your heart, people are going to feel that through the song. If you are forcing something that isn’t you, that connection will never be there.
Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.
Be yourself. Never worry about what anyone thinks of you, worry about why you care what they think of you. At the end of the day, its your life only…live it.
Don’t let the setbacks define your career. Let them be a step to the next level up.
Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.
This summer my track Living in the Moonlight debuted on the Billboard dance track as a breakout.
Lyrics usually come first for me when I write. I will get a topic I am passionate about at the moment or a title or line that pops into my head and I run with it from there. And I work with amazing co-writers to build the songs from there. The studio however is my favorite part. I love breathing life into something new.
Name five biggest artists that you like.
Celine Dion, Madonna, Pink, Judy Garland and Queen.
DJ Lynwood and Dan De Leon both did and fabulous remixes of my single Living in the Moonlight. On a vocal level, Celine Dion would be my dream collaboration.
