Tell us about yourself.

My name is Sera Bullis and I’m a 15 year old singer-songwriter. I have been singing for as long as I can remember (my parents say two); there was always music playing in our house… all different genres. One minute I’d be listening to Beethoven’s 5th, the next, Bon Jovi! I started writing at around seven or eight years old and after playing piano for about two years, began putting my words to music. I wrote my first song around nine or ten years old and I haven’t stopped since. To date, I’ve written over thirty songs.

Tell us about yourself as an artist.

My creative outlets include acting, writing (songs and stories), drawing, playing piano, cello, and dabbling on electric guitar.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about the genre of your music.

If I had to categorize my music, I would say my primary genre is pop. Likely Top 40 stuff since I love synth. Occasionally, I’ve been accused of writing pop-country!

Tell us about the story behind your song.

“Falling Down” is a song written about life’s struggles and battling depression. You know those days when you think you’ve got it all figured out and then life throws you a curve ball…

.

Tell us about the problems you are facing as a musician.

I haven’t really faced problems as a musician – I’m really just starting to get my music out there for people to hear!

.

.

Tell us about the recording and production of the song.

I wrote “Falling Down” a few years ago and frankly, it wasn’t one of the top choices for my first EP. But once I got in the studio and starting messing around with it, the song just blossomed. I liked the message so I really wanted it on the album.

.

List the names of blogs, radio or TV stations that have supported you so far.

Well, not much to say here since this is my first blog submission! So thanks to you for accepting my song and I really hope the listeners can relate to it.

.

.

.

 

Tell us more about your music career, experience and future goals.

I first played my original songs live opening for folk singer, Cheryl Wheeler, when I was 12 years old. That was a cool experience! I play out locally when I can here in Syracuse. My goal is to share my music far and wide and touch people with the words I write and the passion I want to convey with my music.

.

.

.

 

Brief us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

I don’t really have a main source of inspiration for my writing. When the moment or a thought strikes, I’ll mull the words or tune around in my head before sitting at the piano and creating a song. Many of the experiences I write about are not my own, but more on how I view others living in the world.

.

.

 

Brief us the top-secret behind making a hit song.

Ha, ha! I’ll let you know as soon as I have a hit song!

.

.

.

 

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Find your passion and follow your dreams. Don’t let haters discourage you – I’m only 15, but even I’ve experienced haters. Always do what you love doing!

.

.

.

 

Discuss at length your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

Well, this is my first professionally recorded EP. It contains five songs all written, performed and co-produced by me. I had a lot of input in the studio since I had a certain feel that I wanted for each song. My release party is scheduled for March 2018. I plan to promote and tour regionally over the summer when school is out.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

I usually start out humming a tune then adding lyrics. I’ve started a lot of my songs while outside walking in the woods. Seems like the best place for me to clear my head then fill it with songs!

.

.

.

 

Name the artists you are willing to collaborate with.

I’d love to collaborate with Eminem! Anyone creative, and fun.

.

.

.

My album can be purchased at:

CD Baby

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.

I don’t really have a “happiest” day; I’m pretty happy most days. My saddest day was when we moved last year. I even wrote a song about it, but it never made the album; still hurts too much.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.

I would love to set up an animal shelter then employ the homeless to work there!

.

.

.

 

Tell us about your song.

I think everyone will relate to “Falling Down” – we’ve all been there at different times in our lives.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how you manage other activities with your music career.

I’m a tenth grader right now and for the most part, school comes pretty easy to me, so managing my extracurricular acting/singing/songwriting isn’t too difficult. I do my school work, keep up my grades and write and play out when I can.

.

.

.

 

Tell us five artists you can regard as legends.

Freddie Mercury, Whitney Houston, Prince, I love Bon Jovi (thanks to my parents), Demi Lovato.

Tell us your future plans pertaining music.

I plan to make music my career. As I mentioned earlier, I’m still in high school, but after graduation I’d like to head to a warmer climate where I can pursue a career in music and/or songwriting.

.

.

.

 

Tell us what you think about creativity and originality in music. I think creativity and originality are very important in music.

Without it, one artist would sound like every other out there. Imitation is easy; originality, not so easy!

.

.

.

 

Tell us the reason you are into music.

Music for me is my outlet to express what I’m feeling inside.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your view on old school music and new school music in terms of preference.

If you saw my playlist, it contains a variety of music, old and new, classic and contemporary. I listen to most everything.

Tell us your most memorable day as an artist.

I would have to say hearing my completed EP in its entirety for the first time. I felt really proud…

.

 

Tell us what you would do for the people if you found yourself in a position of power.

I would be the same, but perhaps use my position to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves.
