Music and Motivation with Inanna!
Hi Inanna! Thank you for speaking with me today!Thanks so much for having me! What have you been working on?
These days I am working on the editing of my upcoming music video and I am so excited about it! It's my first video shot entirely on green screen, I can't wait to see the result! I am also planning for the next song release and organizing a very cool event for Earth Day here in Los Angeles. I love bringing people together for great causes, and as my music has an all-environmental focus, Earth Day feels like the most important day of the year. When you're not feeling motivated how do you get back on track? I surround myself with what inspires me: my favorite people, my favorite books, my favorite music, my favorite poems. I go back to them, I gather more energy just by being with them. What inspired me in the past always has the power to remind me of my "why", why I am doing what I'm doing, what took me here in the first place and why I should keep going. Being around animals is also a great way for me to relax, destress, get back to what's real, and to remind me of why I chose to speak up for them and for nature rights. How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success? Of course being at the right place at the right time counts, but I do believe that most of the time we create the conditions for things to happen, we subconsciously put ourselves in the situations where we are supposed to be. Luck helps for sure, but working hard and smart, being focused, authentic and being a kind empathetic person plays a bigger role in our successes. What is your go to song when you need an energy boost? I have several, but I usually go for Army of Me by Björk, Despicable by grandson or The Bitter End by Placebo.
Do you have any sort of ritual to center or prepare yourself before you perform live?I don't have any specific ritual, but I do love doing some general body stretching before performing (apart from a few vocal exercises). I usually dance on stage a bit, so I always prepare and warm up for a few minutes before the show. Any other projects you would like to promote?
Yes! I have just started to collect all my lyrics -released and not (all environment/animals/future-themed)- in a little book that I am hoping to publish by the end of Summer. Also, if you are in Los Angeles for Earth Day, hit me up and I can invite you personally to an event, called "Arts for a Better Earth", that I am organizing with a colleague. I want to take my activism beyond music and bringing people together at events has always been a passion of mine. I hope to see you all there! Please let everyone know where to keep up with you and your music!Sure! You can find all links on my website: www.inannamusic.com Thank you!
