Interview With LUNA SOLANA
1) When did you realise that you had a passion for music?
1.) I was about 11 years old when my passion for music was sparked. At the time, I had just started middle school and chosen choir as one of my electives. Ever since then, I never stopped singing.
2) Who are your main inspirations as an artist?
2.) I have several inspirations, but off the top of my head, I think some of my biggest would be Lights, Elohim, Grimes.. As well as some older artists that my parents played a lot while I was growing up. I remember my mom playing plenty of Fleetwood Mac, Supertramp, Zepplin, and Prince around the house. My dad on the other hand, listened to The Beatles on repeat every time we rode in the car. So, I’d say those artists probably had an influence on me too.
3) What would you like to achieve as an artist?
3.) I would love to be able to quit my day job one day, and work with some of my favorite artists of course. I’d also like to be able to donate larger portions of money to some of the charities that mean the most to me.
4) What is your most memorable moment while being an artist?
4.) When I released my cover of “Panic Attacks” by Elohim and she shared it on her instagram story. That was an exciting moment for sure.
5) Who is the biggest artist you’ve worked with?
5.) I’m working with Drew Chadwick from Emblem3. I reached out to him a little while back about creating a song, and fortunately he agreed to help. So needless to say, there is a lil somethin’ somethin’ cooking.
6) Tell us a little more about your recent project?
6.) There is a project I started and finished a little over a year ago, a single that has yet to be released. It’s looking like early 2021 is when I’ll finally be able to share it though! As for Elohim I discovered her in late 2017? I stumbled upon her music shortly before I received a skin cancer diagnosis. Then I began listening to her music pretty religiously throughout the whole process of figuring out what my treatment was going to be. It kept me in high spirits and guided me to a place of comfort. I don’t know, I just know that her songs really seemed to resonate with me in ways that have become special to me over time
7) What should we be looking forward to from you in the future? Is there anything else you would like to tell our readers
Look forward to music that forces you to meet your dark parts in order to harness your light. Recently I’ve been forcing my masculine qualities to take the back seat for a bit. I feel that embracing my sensitivities and my femininity is necessary and it’s something I’m still working on. So I hope to create the kind of material that inspires others to do the same.
