Hey Kerith Chirhal! Great to be showcasing some of your new music on BuzzMusic! Tell us more about your personal upbringing within the music world?
Hi, thanks a lot for having me. I have loved music since day one. It has always been my passion and it has also been a whole process (still continuing) to develop myself.
I started writing songs from a very young age. I watched some shows on TV, I was in a choir from 2013 to 2017; I learned a lot there and I am so grateful for that experience, and so many other stuff...
Do you believe that the way you intend to communicate your messages through your music is easily received by your listeners?
I personally believe it is, yes. But sometimes they tend to think that everything I write or sing is only about me but it's not the case haha. I write a lot, and usually, it's not about my own experiences.
"Try Again" was an incredibly versatile and catchy. Where did you draw the inspiration to create this particular type of sound?
Thank you. I wanted to bring some different vibezzz to the music I made before. My inspiration came from the need to improve and refine my work you know.
And I thank JW Bonilla and Ralami a lot for helping me through the process.
How would you say that "Try Again" compares to the kind of music you curated when you first started out as an artist?!
First of all, I really love 'Try Again' and I was working on that project for a long time (I prefer not to call it an EP for some reasons, so it's more a project). It includes the Remix version I did of my first single 'Life is Like' with the participation of JC247 an amazing Cuban rapper. And the second track is called 'Enough (Me Lasser)' which is the french version of my single 'Enough'. I felt like my french listeners needed to know exactly what's was going on in that track.
And finally, there is 'Powerful' that I recorded with Rayden and Mshairi. I love them. It's a cover song that I really wanted to do, to send it as a support for the people struggling around the world. I feel like if we have a gift, we must use it for things that really matter. That's the story behind 'Try Again' haha.
Do you prefer the more intimate singing/songwriting process over live performance? How do you personally feel when you're performing your music live?
That's something I have always wanted to talk about. As much as I love writing songs and being in the studio, I prefer performing live. Cause it just feels different and it's great to see how people react to your song. I love performing live and the energy that comes with all the rehearsals, it just feels different and great.
It was awesome to be able to present "Try Again" here on BuzzMusic! What do you think is next for you as an artist? Where do you hope to progress within the next couple of years?!
Thank you. I am currently working on some other projects that I wish to release ASAP, to be honest. I feel like I am growing as an artist but it also influences my growth as a person.
I want to inspire more people and grow my audience more and more for raising my voice and sending messages for things that really matter.
And to anyone out there, I just want to say, whatever you can go through, never give up on yourself or your dreams.
