Hi Lydia! Can you tell us about the meaning behind “Watch Me As I Go”? What inspired it?
“Watch Me As I Go” is about putting yourself first, prioritizing yourself over a relationship because either you aren’t getting out what you put in, or you simply just need to focus on yourself for a while. It’s also about emotional strain in a relationship which can only be fixed by time apart to understand what it really is that you want.
Did you ever take vocal lessons or were you just naturally gifted?
I’ve always loved to sing for as long as I can remember. When I was younger I was obsessed with Disney and would singalong to the songs everyday. I’ve had coaching by various different people growing up but ultimately I would say it’s about doing it a lot and learning as you go.
What artists inspire you? Why?
Artists that inspire me are Ariana Grande and Charlie Puth because they’re both insanely talented at what they do, they never limit themselves and continue to be role models for many people.
What are some challenges you’ve faced in the music industry? How have you overcome them?
A challenge for me that I’ve gotten a lot better at is facing rejection, at the end of the day no matter what you do, not everyone is going to like you or the music you bring out and you’ve just got to remember that as long as you like what you’re doing and have the motivation and drive to keep going with it then no opinion is going to stop you.
Is this single the start of a new album?
This single is the start of many more things to come, all updates will be on my social media - @lydiasingerhq on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
