Where are you located now and where are you originally from? I'm originally from NJ and still based there. Who has been your greatest influence?
I wouldn’t say there’s been one person who has been my greatest influence. Musically, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Donny Hathaway and Barbra Streisand are my greatest influences. I take bits and pieces from each of them. What is your latest and greatest? My new EP “Bedroom Chronicles 2” !! It’s available on all streaming platforms now! Are you performing LIVE soon? Yes, October 1st I’m doing a show in my hometown of Teaneck, NJ to celebrate my new project “Bedroom Chronicles 2.” I’ll have my full band with me and I can’t wait to see people singing along to all the new records! What are you most looking forward to in 2022? I’m looking forward to getting back out on the road and performing all over the world, as soon as I can. How did you deal with all the changes in the past two years that the music industry has gone through? My experience during the pandemic has been unique in that I’m also a registered nurse. Pre-COVID, I was working full time in music and I was in Europe on tour. When the travel ban took effect, I rushed back home to the states and immediately went back to the work as a nurse in the COVID ICU. To be able to even put out music and videos in the midst of all that has gone on, I’m really proud of myself. I’m simply taking things a day at a time and adjusting to a new normal. I’m doing a lot of virtual performances and praying for the day I can return to music full time. What would you say to your younger self if you could? Everything is exactly how it should be. Keep going. On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you?
30. When you're not feeling motivated how do you get back on track? I don’t believe there’s such a thing as being “off track.” If I’m not “motivated” to create or perform I allow my body the time to rest, to live, to enjoy the beautiful life that’s been afforded to me. As creatives it’s very easy to feel that the only time well spent is time creating. I want to challenge that narrative. Whenever you’re supposed to create, it will come. How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success? There’s no such thing as luck. How can we stay up to date with you? Join my mailing list to get notifications on everything Felicia!
