Interview by Carl Marsh - April 2014
I like to promote reading, and one day I would love to have as many followers as Perez Hilton, spreading the word!
I know you were born in Venezuela but you moved to the US when quite young, at what age was that?
Do you remember much of your birth country and if so, do you think your musical influences have come from there, or was it once you were in the US, that these developed?
I actually moved to the U.S when I was still a baby, just 6 months old. Unfortunately, I don't remember Venezuela at all. I think my musical influences definitely stem from a deep rooted connection with music and sounds from my birth country. I understood rhythms and beats before I really understood anything else. It is, and will always be, a big part of who I am.
What can we expect in the next 12 months from you?
I am always thinking about what's next! You'll see me move more into mainstream. I'm still looking for that perfect fit…
I know this must be something you get asked all the time.................... but Justin Bieber, do you know if he is a fan of your work, and are you of his?
I do get asked this question a lot and it always surprises me. Yes, I am a big fan of Justin Bieber. Who doesn’t respect him for what he has done in music? I don’t know if he is a fan of my music but I hope so. I believe all artists should respect and support each other. There is always room for more talent.
Random question here Blare, if you could be an animal, what would it be and why?
Elephant--- Strong, Determined, and Unstoppable
When would we expect to see you touring in Europe and the rest of the World?
Nothing is for sure, and everything always changes, but I will definitely fight to internationally tour after my debut studio album. Stayed tuned!
It was a pleasure talking to you Blare, no doubt be seeing you at the Grammy’s very soon!
Thank You Carl. I really appreciate the support.
