What is your name and what city do you rep?
Chioke Dmachi from the City of Angels Los Angeles.
What is unique about you and your music?
The most unique thing about me and my music is me. Everything do I pour in my authenticity and my truth. I express and I create everything from my heart and my one a kind perspective and that is what makes it magic.
What shaped your music?
Music itself has shaped my music. being A fan of Pop and being a Pop music artist I love how the Pop genre is so inspired from so many different genres. I love diversity and what’s possible when different sounds and people with different backgrounds can get together and create something new and beautiful.
When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
I always loved singing and writing music. It was when I was about 17 or 18 when I met one of my best life friends and first song writing partner Anthony Schubert. Since that day I’ve been hooked ever since , writing, recording, performing,…
What type of music do you listen to?
I love all genres!!! I just love it to be good and make me feel something. But truly I’ve never heard a type of music I could find something to love about.
Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?
Undervalued Artist? Interesting question. I feel A lot of artist are undervalued. There is a lot of amazing talent in this world. Being in the City of Angels, Los Angels. I’m blessed to bare witness to so many mind blowing performers and artist that I can say I think there are just too many count. With that being said I also leaned as an artist how important it is to truly value yourself as an artist and as an individual . #ShineYourLight
I decide the set list we have plenty of rehersals and thru that process magic happens. I’m a very theactrical performer, I like my shows to tell a story. I often work with my acting coach to really emotionally dive into the songs i’m singing so that I can give the audience more of my all.
What ignites your (song) writing flow?
My song writing flow ignites itself. Often times I’ll start humming something i’m hearing in my head. or sometime i wake out of a dream inspired trying to record into my iphone.
What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
When I’m not doing music I’m acting. Film, TV commercials IMDB https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1282700/ . I love hanging with my Dog Toye he’s a Great Dane and also I love to Travel.
Success to you is…
Being so satisfied with my Right Now that what’s next can only be better.
What do you wish you were told when you first started singing that you think would help artists starting out?
I Know it’s cliche but it’s the absolute truth. Love yourself and Believe in yourself and you can do anything. Decide you have great worth and never sell you self short personally nor professionally. it’s amazing what happens when artists support empower each other. Art is collaboration not competition.
