Check out our latest artist spotlight on Zoya Music.
S] What inspires your music?
The human psyche mainly. Jealousy, love, dreams, hopes, insecurity and pain. As a female in my early twenties with so many dreams, it’s hard not to dissect and feel the need to express all these things when the silence sometimes is painful.
S] What keeps you passionate outside of music?
Family. They are my biggest support system and I am so lucky to have one that only wants me to do what I want to do with my life. They’ve supported my music from day one and without them and along with my crew, managers and band this all wouldn’t be possible. So my family keeps me passionate.
S] What are the biggest challenges for you as an artist?
Balancing business and creation. Trying to make music but also trying to market it sometimes leads to roadblocks where I have to compromise on my original vision. Also balancing my personal life and music. I am always traveling and it’s becoming harder to maintain relationships. One day, I would love to be able to settle and have a more simple life a few months out of the year. But, this is the life I chose and I am thankful to be able to travel and make and perform music. To do what I love.
S] What has been a career highlight?
Coming to India. I am from California and never expected India to have so much opportunity for me. As I am writing this interview, I am at the Bacardi NH7 Weekender. We just performed yesterday for thousands and it is simply amazing to be able to perform alongside acts I have looked up to for many years.
S] What plans can you share for 2017?
More festivals and tours in India for sure. Going back to America for a small tour in March and having been making plans to come tour in Europe which I have always dreamed of! So up and up from here.
