Please introduce yourself real quick...
I'm Jenny - a german lyrics writer, arranger and singer also known as 'xUnreachablee' on YouTube. I write and record english anime/gaming related covers for 5 years by now!
What do you do?
I've worked with two different net labels by now; GameChops & Tiny Waves.
Other than that, most of the collaborations I had the pleasure to record for were close friends or instrumentalists/remixers in need of vocals. I didn't have the chance to sing on any conventions or events yet due to work and other personal reasons but I'm more than ready to take on whatever's in store in the future!
What´s new right now?
I hit another huge milestone on YouTube not too long ago - therefore my mind's honestly just filled with so many different ideas and projects I'd love to start and need to plan ahead for. One of those ideas was the charity campaign for my first official shirts I designed! Furthermore, I'd love to release an EP this year; may it be filled with originals or covers arranged by fellow instrumentalists, remixers or myself - just thinking of taking on an EP gives me chills in a good way.
Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?
I'm in love with Dallas Green, Brendon Urie and Craig Mabbitt.
They all have such an incredible vocal range that I strive to train for. All of them have such a unique spin on vocals and techniques on how to get their feelings across in their own way.
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?
Thinking waaaay too much about what and when to get things done and started.
I personally struggle with my motivation BIG TIME, which is one of many things that taught me to cope with things MY WAY.
My number one tip is to keep things how you like them to be. No one except YOU can make things happen and go like you want them to go. If you have the luxuary to be your own boss, make use of it and don't beat yourself up over not producing tracks at a fast pace.
If you need time to sort things out, do so. If you pressure yourself and your music by overthinking, things will get real tough real quick.
How do you personally discover new music?
I usually check up on new tracks and animes every two days to keep a list of possible covers I want to write or record for in the future.
Sometimes close friends or fans will hit me up with something they'd love to hear from me which is another lovely thing that keeps me updated.
Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?
"I do. In caps out of excitement most of the time. No lie.
What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?
Be creative and maybe even lose yourself in your own music. There shouldn't be a structure or full thought out plan already.
Sometimes these tiny 3am FL sessions at night make the best sounding tracks or lyrics. Or maybe I just love to drive on sleep deprivation-- who knows.
What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?
Leave it be for a few minutes, hours or even days. Maybe ask other's for their opinion and experiment with ideas.
It might not click on your first few tries but I promise, you'll make it work in one way or another with a bit of patience.
We meet again in one year. What has changed?
I honestly just hope and pray that I'm still in love with making and writing music for people with the same interests.
