Read the daisy Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I am daisy, a singer-songwriter-producer based in Los Angeles, California. I am a solo female artist who wants to push the boundaries and, most importantly, bring people together through music.
I moved to L.A. from Texas, and that was planned since I can remember. I went to acting school out in L.A., but I always knew that the school was just a “ticket out” and that I’d be seriously pursuing music after I graduated. And, that’s exactly how it happened. I just woke up one day and thought, “what am I doing? It’s music. It always has been”. It’s been a beautiful journey since, and I wake up so thankful that I made the choice now rather than later.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


Well, I probably have too many influences, haha. My taste has pretty much remained the same since I was able to understand music; broad. I LOVE music so much, it’s tough to place a box on top of it and only listen to what’s in that box. The artists who have influenced me the most would probably surprise people. It ranges from The Civil Wars to Post Malone. Really, I think my taste has grown more open the older I get. Especially because of what we’re able to do nowadays with music, our options are truly endless and it’s really a beautiful time to be a part of it. Growing up, every single person in my family was older than me so, I was exposed to a wide variety of genres. From my father’s taste, I started with Classic Rock, Outlaw Country, and Jazz. My mother loved R&B, Blues, and Funk. My sisters helped me discover everything modern from Tool to Amy Winehouse. Music is very important to my family. There were no limitations, and I’m very thankful. Now, I’m the one suggesting they listen to artists like Flume and Electric Mantis. It’s a strange mix, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ll listen to anything once, and from there I decide on whether or not I connect with it.


What´s new right now?


Right now, I am focusing on writing and distributing more music. I want to give the listener a wide range of songs to represent who I am as an artist. I want to make sure there’s a strong vision behind daisy, and that this vision is coming across smoothly. I’d like to build a solid foundation before jumping into gigs. I’m truly having so much fun writing right now, and I don’t want to interrupt that. I’m constantly releasing my music via SoundCloud, and that’s where listeners can keep up with me. I love that there’s a media such as SoundCloud that enables us to connect with the listener in a more intimate way than Spotify or others like it. It’s more personal, and it allows a certain freedom that we don’t get anywhere else. I want listeners to feel like they know me, and that’s what I want to do at this moment; connect with my audience and secure that connection.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


The biggest mistake I made when I first started making music was definitely judging my sound. I would say…don’t worry too much about what your “sound” is. It will happen naturally as you learn and grow as an artist. Make what you want to make. That’s my number one rule. Everything else will align as long as you’re putting in the hours and taking risks. If you're being true to yourself, then you're already making the music that you want to make.

What has been your biggest challenge right now? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?


My biggest challenge right now is accepting the roller coaster. Making music puts you on this up and down ride. You hate it some days, and other days you’re completely in love and can’t wait for the next song. It gets tough to balance out the heaviness. Sometimes you go to some really dark places, but you really have to play mind games with yourself. I try to stay positive by being annoyingly optimistic with myself and staying healthy. Making sure that my body feels good is important. Sometimes all it takes is surrounding myself with good friends and fun activities to keep my mind off of it. Then, it’s back to the grind. Just finding what works for you is a major part of the journey; schedules, diet, exercise/outdoors, etc. Whatever rejuvenates you or makes you laugh…these are things that you can’t forget to enjoy in order to keep that balance more consistently. I don’t know if it’s ever going to be a smooth or easy ride, but it doesn’t have to be miserable. It’s such an emotional roller coaster, and it’s really important to take care of yourself.
