Newcomer Stefani Rose from Blenheim doesn’t only create gorgeous, exhuberant electronica tunes, but also has her head firmly on her shoulders, managing herself with a wit and focus beyond her young age. This is music video for her debut single Video Games; a full album is planned for mid 2017.
I’ve always been into music even as a little baby. My mum loves to tell my friends little stories of me as a kid listening to the records we own, always dancing to the radio. But I got involved when I was roughly 5-6 when my teacher let me make a song on GarageBand. But I wrote my full first track when I was 11 and it was called Play That Song.
Growing up it was whatever was in the top 40, so a lot of pop. Now I surround myself around so many different kinds of music, at the moment I’m really in love with artists like Tame Impala, Lady Gaga or underground stuff.
I have one midi keyboard for lead synth, it is a Samson , one microphone that I record demos for other people with, and the rest is on my laptop. I also use FL Studio and Audacity. I like using really retro synthesizer plug in’s – free and legal of course 😉
Oh gosh! Well, uhh. I’m quite a emotional person and I actually deal with mental stability issues, so to be writing happy dance tracks is very ironic actually.
I will say my music has really made an impact on me. For me – making music is fun and the vibes and feelings and emotions you get from my music is more of a way to create an escapism.
I’ve always wanted to have music that inspires others as much as music has inspired me. I want people to be able they feel like they belong she they can be happy. I put these meaningful stories into the music but then I sugarcoat it with pretty pop music. This way people can dance and relate to the music I guess.
Well – I believe that if there’s something that you want in this world then you need to work for it. I am very independent and I like doing stuff by myself and getting it done on my own I guess.
I’m very DIY. I make all the music and artwork and visuals that I present. This comes back to talking about being independent. I love the connection that people can make to art that they create. It’s so special and I love it.
