Artist Interview: Shayla Hamady
Any plans to release a video?
Yes! My friend Chase had formed a great idea for a video. I attend Genesee Career Institute for Grahpic Design. He goes for music production and they have a studio set up. Each class period, our teachers let us take the time to record some of the video. We got some students involved and it’s going to be great!! There is no release date yet, but it should be soon.
Any plans to hit the road?
Not at the moment but with hard work, I know I’ll get there.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I’m myself. I speak the truth and I try to relate to kids my age. I promote myself as well as I can and create a differen’t prespective of what music really is about.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Red Hot Chili Peppers. They leave a good vibe whenever I’m driving down the road or even just hanging out. They’re very relaxing to me.
Tell us about your passions
The thought of getting through high school and just pushing through each shift at McDonalds because it will be worth it in the end.
What else is happening next in your world?
I hope to be way better at guitar. I can play a few songs as of right now, but I would LOVE to be able to play for an audience without messing up.
While working on my music career, I will be attending Mott Community College for an associates degree in Graphic Design and take music technology classes to obtain a degree in music production.
Thanks for an awesome interview, Shayla!
