Q&A with Alexis Lynn
What was your inspiration behind Promises? How long did you work on this song for?
It was inspired by people who make promises they can’t keep, or generally don’t follow through with the things they say. My co-writer and I got into the write and shared incredibly similar experiences. We felt fed-up and wanted to write the song from the point of view of putting your foot down and cutting off those people, and in just under 3 hours, “Promises” was born!
What advice would you give to other young artists trying to break into the music industry?
Be true to yourself. Make the music that speaks to you and is authentic to YOU, because that’s what people love about artists, individuality.
When did you start making music?
I started singing when I was young but I started writing when I was 16!
Who or what has helped you grow as an artist?
Studio Cloud 30 for sure. I think vocal lessons are vital for any singer, no matter how good you already are! My friends and family have also always been incredibly supportive which I think is so, so helpful for someone starting out. I’ve also done some writing workshops and try to write with new people all the time, which I think as a writer helps me grow tremendously. Every time I write, I feel myself getting better and better.
How has taking vocal lessons helped you develop as an artist?
Vocal lessons have been instrumental in my development as an artist. As I said before, I think every singer should take vocal lessons, regardless of how good you are because you can always be better! Lessons challenged me (and still challenge me!) to constantly get better and learn new things. Studio Cloud 30 has been an amazing place for me to develop as an artist. My voice has changed and improved and the atmosphere and support SC30 provides is unlike any other.
What advice would you give to SC30 artists starting out?
Keep up with your lessons! But also make sure to practice at home! Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions, I think asking for help is one of the key things to getting better.
