Hi Christee, care to introduce yourself to our readers?

Absolutely! Hi everyone! I'm Christee Palace, a pop singer/songwriter from Toronto Ontario! 

Who are some of your current favorite pop stars and why?

I have many pop artists/bands that I really dig, but I'll just name a few that I love currently: #BeaMiller, #BillieEilish, #TaylorSwift, #Lights, #Halsey, #BishopBriggs, #AlessiaCara... It's hard to narrow it down!

Mind describing your songwriting approach to our readers?

Songwriting is always an interesting process, and to be honest, it never happens the same way for me. Songwriting is an incredible outlet for creative minds and emotional hearts. For me, it always starts out after being triggered by something that is happening in my life that I need to get off my chest. Sometimes it starts from a simple word that replays in my head when I'm going through something, or it may be a phrase. Sometimes it will be the music that I hear first that truly sounds like what I am feeling, and the words flow out after. No matter what way the actual songwriting begins, I make sure that when my songs are being written, that they are authentic and actually capture what the song is about, and what it means to me. 

How would you lyrically interpret “Harden My Heart” do you feel as if this is more so a motivational type of single?

"Harden My Heart" was written at the perfect time for me. I originally wrote it after one experience I had where I finally just said "I need to guard my heart, and stop being so sensitive. I need to not let things emotionally effect me anymore." When I wrote the song, I wanted the chorus to be bold and almost like an anthem. I wanted it to sound like how I felt, which was fed up and tired of feeling helpless when it came to love, or anything else in life for that matter. I definitely think it turned into a motivational type of song in a sense-- I imagined the gang vocals in the chorus being the voices of everyone who has gone through what I have went through, and they were singing it along with me. The song was meant to give strength to those who may not have it. 

What is the legacy you hope to leave behind your career?

I honestly just want to be the type of artist that people can look at/listen to and say they can relate. I want to be that person, and that outlet for people when they are looking for songs to help them through what they are going through. If I can give strength to people through my music, and preach authenticity, that will fulfill me.
