Renaissance Woman, originally based out of Richmond, VA, just made the big move to Los Angeles this year to pursue film and music studies.

 

She is self-produced and has been playing the piano and writing music for 13 years.

 

Her sound combines her roots in classical music, dream pop, folk, and hints of hip-hop.

Tell us about your future music projects.

I just finished scoring music for a short animated film about a drag queen which I’m super-excited about.

 

I’m scoring music for another short film soon, as well as for my own.

 

As a film student, a lot of my projects combine my love for music and film.

Tell us if you will change the style of your music to get signed.

Absolutely not.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on this song.

Accidental Wine is about the temporary nature of our lives. Often people grow older and older, with no regards to their lives passing them by.

.

.

.

 

Tell us if you have a guideline or standard set for your music production.

I use GarageBand, a MIDI keyboard, and a microphone I bought myself. It’s a pretty DIY setup.

.

.

.

Tell us your preparation for a live performance and how you make sure the quality of sound is high.

I’ve only done a few yet, but generally, I just create some backup tracks and make sure I communicate well with whoever is running the venue.

.

.

.

 

Discuss how to live healthy.

I eat a vegan diet, I exercise regularly, and I just take care of myself in general, mentally, and physically.

 

I accept myself in order to better accept others and enjoy what I can when I can.

.

.

.

Tell us if you are in control of your performance or you are still learning.

Still learning how to perform musically.

.

.

.

 

Tell us that precious moment you chose music as a career.

I’m a film major, and music is something I will always do, but I’m not sure what direction I’m headed in yet.

 

The moment I decided music would always be a part of my life was when I learned Clair de Lune on the piano when I was 11. I felt connected to something deeper than myself. I felt connected and free.

.

.

.

Tell us the greatest feedback you have ever received on a song of yours.

A stranger told me one of my songs was beautiful and made them feel nostalgic, and they couldn’t quite place why. I love that I invoked nostalgia for someone.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your side interest apart from music.

I do MMA. I’ve done Folkstyle wrestling as well as Sambo, a Russian martial art, and Judo, a Japanese martial art. I’m also learning to kickbox. MMA makes me feel incredibly powerful.

.

.

.

Tell us the artist that influenced you.

Jeff Buckley has influenced me a lot.

.

.

.

Tell us if you prefer singing as a solo artist to collaborating with others.

I see the value in both, but I really enjoy collaboration. I love people.

.

Tell us the full details of this song.

The chorus of Accidental Wine started off as a few measures of piano I wrote, and then I improvised some lyrics.

 

Then I just started adding from there. It has a lot of sections that have a lullaby quality to them and are visual. By the end, it really breaks down into something much bigger.

 

My favourite lyric I wrote for this song was “Music brings color to a world unseen,” because I really hope to do that with this song.

 

I want the listener to be able to envision something for themselves. I want the song to be an entire experience.

.

.

.

Tell us the organization you will set up to fight a cause and state your reason for fighting the cause.

I mean, I’m not sure that’s in the cards for me, but I’ve worked for several non-profits, mostly in education.

 

I really believe everyone deserves a high-quality education and learning environment.

 

I think a good education leads to kids making the best decisions and becoming the best version of themselves.

 

I’ve taught workshops on arts activism to kids, volunteered at an after-school art program last semester, things like that.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about your mood while performing.

I feel a big adrenaline rush, really scared at first. But once I start, the emotion behind the songs and the audience really drives me forward to emote.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the mistakes to avoid in the music business.

As an 18-year-old woman who is just starting, I feel that I’m learning what those mistakes are right now, and I can’t really speak on that yet.

.

.

.

Tell us your opinion on smoking, health is wealth, but people still smoke.

I don’t smoke. I don’t judge others who do because everyone has bodily autonomy but for me, I just don’t need it.

.

.

.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

My artist name is Renaissance Woman. The definition of a renaissance man is “a person with many talents or areas of knowledge.”

 

I feel like I do a bit of everything. I do MMA, produce and write music, play piano, write, direct films, read a lot, etc.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

Accidental Wine is the title I chose because I feel that sometimes people really let their life pass them by.

 

I personally feel like life should get richer and lovelier as the years pass, but I’ve seen some people just give up after a certain point. To use my lyrics, they “grow older and older, like an accidental wine.”

.

.

.

 

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

The album is also called Accidental Wine. The reason I chose this song for the album’s namesake was that, honestly, I thought it sounded nice. I also felt it created a visual that encapsulated what I wanted for this album.
