Interview with RAEL8

Tell us about yourself, who are you and where do you come from?

I’m a 19 year old singer songwriter from London, who’s artist name originated from angels. I started getting serious into music when I was 18 that was the beginning of my journey but since then I’ve realised how much I want this. I am literally an oxymoron, at least I think I am I can be happy as hell and then write a song about me dancing with my demons in a forest.

How was your passion for music born? Who are your idols?

My passion for music was literally born out of the idea that I could really heal people with my voice. When I was younger I wanted to be a doctor but I also was extremely passionate about becoming a singer. I repressed that side of me for so long but soon I realised that it was all I wanted in life. My idols are Adele and most artists. Adele I just adore her attitude as a whole although I don’t consider myself a super fan I still love her.

What kind of music do you do?

I call it poetical indie with a hint of pop and rock. I don’t even know if I have a specific genre anymore because I love all music I wanna try making a song in all genres at some point in life.

What is the most important song for you? What message do you want to convey to the listener?

A song that I haven’t yet released. I talks about how we are so blindsided by labels we forget reality. It’s in its writing phase but it’s one that I really adore because I remember eber a time when I was so stuck on labels

Why should a listener who doesn’t know you listen to your music?

THE REASON FOR THAT IS THEY INSTANTLY BECOME ABSOLUTELY ADORED BY ME AND MAKE ME WANT TO SNUGGLE AND HUG THEM. That and I just want them to feel comfortable, if they are looking for a home within my music they’ll find it.

What are your future projects? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

Five years from now, I want everyone to know my name or know my music. My future projects are secrets ^^

Tell our readers a funny episode that happened in your career as an artist.

I was at the Jazz festival and was so nervous I forgot the words to a song I knew like the back of my hands, out of all the problems I thought I would face forgetting was most definitely not one. It was hilarious because I kept staring at another amazing artist for moral support, I was also trying to find the cable to the microphone for moral support although it was a Bluetooth microphone.
