My top questions to Keldamuzik:
As an artist / song writer where do you get your most inspiration from? - Life experiences, and others. Whether I’m writing about being in the club, or talking about friends or relationships, It’s all about what I’ve been through and what I’ve done.
Were any of your songs written to symbolize your childhood? - Sort of, my first album was written based off my childhood, I referenced to some stuff and It definitely caught the attention of people that I know now who were like wow really Kelda? lol.
What job do you think you would be doing now if you didn't have your music career? I would probably be a news reporter or something to dealing with talking before an audience. Maybe even a therapist because I love talking to people and helping them with their issues. Talking so much fun to me, I can go on for days! I actually have a talk show called “Diva Talk Tonite”, where I interview guests and even include comedy sketches in between.
If you were to give someone advice on life or how to start songwriting, what would you say? The first thing is think about what type of artist you want to be. Then focus on a particular subject matter to touch on. From there the writing becomes a bit easy and you’re able to know what concepts you want to come up with for your songs and catchy hooks.
What has been your most enjoyable song? Why? I really like “That’s Why” which is my latest single. I like this track because I introduce who Keldamuzik really is, what she cares about and what doesn’t matter to her. It’s like a “I’m being me” type of song you know?
Do you like all your songs? I do. Although I know there are some songs that I write, people find a bit corny or that it lacks substance, but I make those types of tracks for a reason, licensing and radio purposes. Either way I like all of my music and no matter what, you will like at least one song on an album even if you hate the rest lol.
Have you ever considered joining a band or have you always wanted to be solo? I have performed with a band a few times and it kind of inspired me to want to put a band together, but I just think of all the trouble I would have to go through trying to find the band mates and making sure we are all on the same page. Solo is best for me and the kind of music I do.
Who would you say is your inspiration for your love of music, and why? I’ve fallen in love with many artists, it’s too hard to name all of them, but as artists I do like Eminem, E-40, TLC...as performers I like Michael Jackson of course, Janet, Madonna.
How old were you when you wrote your first song and what was it about? I was 12 years old, just sitting at the computer and thinking hmm should I write all my thoughts in a diary or write a song about it, so I wrote a song. It was called “Why Don’t You Talk to me”. lol the song made absolutely no sense but I the way I sung it, you’d think it was a real track.
Where is your favorite place to tour and who have you enjoyed touring with? So far I love the Caribbean and Tokyo. Both relaxing places and the fans are so appreciative to have artists perform in their country. Even if they don’t know who you are, they’re just so grateful and happy to see and hear you.
What is your favorite song on your album and what inspired its title? I would say “Wind Blow” is the best. Reason being is the featured artists on the track and the beat was just so laid back and cool. It was the chilliest beat ever made for me and a one taker when I recorded it. It was inspired from my first tour in Barbados and it also featured the native reggae singer Kirk Brown.
What is your favorite song that isn't your own? That’s hard, I like so many and the thing is I have a new old song that I listen to every month and I’m like this is my favorite song of all time, then next month I find a new one and I’m like ok this is my new favorite song. So with that being said, I really can’t name one, they’re all too good.
