Can you start by introducing yourself and telling us more about your launch into music?
My name is Eugenia Jenny Ziss and I am a 21-year-old Greek chick from Montreal! My passion for music started at a very young age; singing in the crib to anywhere possible. My grandmother bought me my first microphone and recording system when I was just 10 years old and since then, was in the process of getting better! I have been writing music since high school but it is in more recent times where I started making my music public and introducing to the world my art.
“Silence” is a great track! How did you come up with it?
I came up with this track while going through a confusing time. I was inspired to write something that many people could relate to; about fake people and needing space apart. I found the beat that really caught my attention and the chorus came right away. After the chorus was made, the rest of the song came easy. Inspiration really does help with the creation of something great. A good friend of mine who is also an inspiration for this song, allowed me to use one of his bars which made the song even better!
Who are your top three musical influences?
It is very hard to choose my top three musical influences but if I must, Avril Lavigne was one of the first artists who inspired me to pursue music from a young age. Drake is another musical influence that has inspired me to write catchy raps and flows. Finally, Ed Sheeran is a great musical influence. His music is very inspiring and he has the voice of an angel. His songs helped me go through tough times and he inspires me to write songs that have deep meaningful messages.
How do you feel about today’s mainstream hip-hop? What makes you stand out?
In all honesty, today’s mainstream hip-hop is not what it used to be. Today, artists I’m not creative because what they talk about in their songs are either not relatable or full of nonsense. Some hip-hop artists kill the game and create really good music but they’re hard to find. What makes me stand out is my gender. Not many female artists are courageous enough to try and make it in the hip-hop world. With my flow and singing ability, I believe that I could become the new voice of this generation with the help of other successful musical influencers in the game.
When can we expect the debut album to drop?
The debut album is currently being worked on and if the timing is right, within the next year I should have enough songs mastered in order to create an album.
