JXM406

WHAT IS YOUR NAME AND WHAT CITY DO YOU REP?

JENEVIEVE – QUEENS

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR MUSIC?

I COME FROM A LONG LINE OF ENTERTAINERS IN THE FIELDS OF MUSIC AND FILM. I HAVE WORKED IN MANY DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES FROM THE US ARMY DOING MEDICAL LOGISTICS TO MAKEUP ARTISTRY FREELANCING FOR MAC COSMETICS. MY MUSIC IS AS ECLECTIC AS MY MIND. I AM A TRUE WRITER, A POET, AN EMPATH AND TAKE PRIDE IN WRITING LYRICS THAT OTHERS CAN VISUALIZE WITH THEIR SENSES AND ULTIMATELY CONNECT WITH.

WHAT SHAPED YOUR MUSIC?

THE PRODUCTIONS SHAPED THE VIBE. THE VIBE SHAPED MY IMAGINATION IN WAYS THAT I COULD TELL A STORY THAT MADE SENSE. EACH SONG IS IT’S OWN WORLD AND THEME. I ADD LYRICS AND MELODY TO THE PRODUCTION AND MY PRODUCER AND I GO BACK AND CREATE AROUND THAT. 

WHEN DID YOU REALIZE YOU WERE GOING TO MAKE MUSIC PROFESSIONALLY?

I REALIZED I WAS GOING TO MAKE MUSIC PROFESSIONALLY WHEN I RECORDED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A PROFESSIONAL STUDIO. IT WAS ONE OF THE MANY ACOUSTIC SONGS I HAD WRITTEN CALLED “SCARED” I KNEW RIGHT AWAY THAT THIS WAS MY PASSION AND WILL NEVER GIVE UP! 

WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?

I LISTEN TO ALL TYPES OF MUSIC. 

WHO, TO YOU, IS THE MOST UNDERVALUED ARTIST IN THE GAME?

AIMEE ECHO!!!

HOW DO YOU GET READY FOR PERFORMANCES?

I DO REIKI ON MYSELF AND FOCUS ON GIVING THAT POSITIVE ANIMAL MAGNETIC VIBE TO THE LOVING CROWD! 

WHAT IGNITES YOUR SONG WRITING FLOW?

IT IS A FIRE THAT BURNS INSIDE OF ME CONSTANTLY. I HEAR A BEAT AND I FREESTYLE. I CAN PICTURE SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED OR MAKE UP A WHOLE SCENE IN MY HEAD. IT IS A LOT OF FUN AND I AM CONSTANTLY SURPRISING MYSELF.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU DON’T DO MUSIC (CREATIVE AND OTHERWISE) AND THAT YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT?

WRITE POETRY, CURRENTLY TYPING UP AND EDITING POEMS I HAVE WRITTEN IN ORDER TO PUBLISH A SERIES OF BOOKS. WRITE MOVIE SYNOPSIS’S, SCORE MUSIC FOR COMPANY JINGLES. SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY, READ BOOKS ON PHILOSOPHY, LOVE, SPIRITUALITY AND PAINT. I AM ALSO IN COLLEGE FOR MY BACHELORS IN COMMUNICATION MEDIA/FILM. I HAVE A PASSION FOR DIRECTING, PHOTOGRAPHY, FILM, AND EDITING AS WELL. I HAVE USED THIS SKILL FOR MANY OF MY MUSIC VIDEOS AND ADVERTISEMENTS. 

SUCCESS TO YOU IS…

BEING HAPPY WITH YOUR LIFE ! DOING WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO ! NOT LIVING IN BOXES!!!! 

WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU WERE TOLD WHEN YOU FIRST STARTED SINGLING THAT YOU THINK WOULD HELP ARTISTS STARTING OUT?

BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF, YOU GET BETTER WITH TIME AND PRACTICE. PATIENCE IS VERY IMPORTANT!!
