Royse lançou no final do ano passado o seu segundo single, ‘Madness’, pela AGM Records, disponível mais abaixo.
Inspirada pelas melodias de Katy Perry e Lily Allen, e no poder vocal de Adele, Royse escolheu a música para contar a sua própria jornada de vida, na qual já superou grandes obstáculos e desafios pessoais e, passados esses momentos de maior escuridão, consegue, agora, emitir uma mensagem de esperança para quem dela necessita.
Produzido pelo lendário guitarrista e artista Adrian Gurvitz, que trabalhou com Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder e Andra Day, o single ‘Madness’ promete ser um “bom refúgio” seja qual for o estado de espírito do momento. A música sempre foi uma forma de terapia para a Royse que, hoje, pretende fazer o mesmo pelos seus fãs.
Royse cresceu no Texas e na Geórgia e começou a ter aulas de teatro aos 10 anos de idade. Aos 15 anos apaixonou-se por todos os aspetos da indústria da música da qual acabou por fazer parte.
A cantora é mais uma das artistas emergentes internacionais que aceitou dar-me uma curta entrevista.
Daniela Azevedo – Hi Royse, please tell us a bit about yourself?
Royse – I am a singer and songwriter from Texas who now lives in Los Angeles. I just released my single ‘Madness’ from my first album “Royse”.
DA – When did you realise you wanted to be a singer?
R – I always say this, but I feel like it chose me. It’s just something I always knew and had to do. It’s how I release my feelings, and get my heart out. Music can relate to you when no one else can.
DA – Your personal story is hard. What would you like to say to people that are facing the same problems?
R – Life can be very hard and lots of time you feel like you want to give up. But don’t!! You will get through it, keep fighting. You are not alone. You are stronger than you think you are.
DA – Do you think that a little ‘Madness’ is needed in our daily lives?
R – OH YEAH! It definitely keeps life fun. A little madness is always good. Life would be boring without it.
DA – How would you describe your music? Pop? Dance?
R – I would describe it as pop, but my hope is that my music relates to all people and they can know they are not alone and whatever they are going through, I’m with them on that.
DA – Adrian Gurvitz was very popular in Portugal, back to the 80’s, due to his ‘Classic’ hit. I don’t know if you were born then but do you like his music or prefer his career as a guitar player? Did you enjoy working with him?
R – I love his music. Adrian is such a legend. He is such a musical genius. Working with him has been amazing. I’ve learned so much from him and he’s taught me so much. It’s a dream come true to work with a legend.
