Katrina Stuart has a passion for music from an early age. Currently, the Canadian-born singer resides in LA and is gaining notoriety with radio-friendly Pop songs. In the following interview, we talk about her career and the new single “Blue Roses”, which is accompanied by an amazing video clip.
1 — Thanks for your time, how do you think you’ve grown as an artist since you first started making music?
I feel like I’ve grown as an artist since I first started making music because I now song-write on everything and I also feel like I have found my sound and my message after so many years.
2 — Who would you say are your main influences?
It’s hard to choose my main inspirations as so many different people inspire me in so many different ways but Alicia Keys and Justin Bieber were definitely some of the first.
I began singing at a young age and then around 10 years old I started taking singing lessons for a couple of years. I still like to take lessons to this day because I believe there is always room for improvement!
4 — What’s the biggest challenge you face when it comes to launching a new song?
Probably the biggest challenge I face when launching a new song would be self-doubt. Sometimes I will start to pick at little things and then get nervous for my fans to hear. I just always hope they will love it as much as me.
5 — I’m really enjoying your new single “Blue Roses”, who do you want to dedicate this song to?
There isn’t one specific person I would dedicate “Blue Roses” to. It is more for anyone in a tough relationship that needs to get out of it.
6 — What is the inspiration behind “Blue Roses”?
While we were in the studio, the concept for “Blue Roses” came up and we wanted to figure out the best way to say it. I think it’s very common that people in relationships or even friendships try to solve issues with gifts or flowers but I want people to realize that these gifts aren’t going to fix your problems.
7 — Are there any upcoming shows?
I actually had my “Blue Roses” release party last Saturday and we premiered the music video there! I performed the song with a band and dancers!
8 — What is a fun fact for your fans that you are unlikely to find on the Internet?
A fun fact that my fans may not know about me is that I don’t like chocolate ice cream LOL.
Outside of music, I like to relax with my friends. We usually make silly videos and dance and sing to the 2000’s songs.
10 — Finally, what advice would you have for aspiring young artists?
Some advice that I would give to aspiring young artists is to stay true to yourself. So many people get lost on this journey and it’s super sad to see. Also, remain humble!
