9/23/2016 by CSuiteMusic Staff
One look and listen at Ukrainian pop singer Alia, and you will instantly know that she is has the potential to go far. We discovered her music while randomly scrolling through Instagram and our staff really liked her sound and her look. She doesn't have tons of followers yet, in fact she revealed in this interview that she is just starting to feel ready to share her music with the world. There's no question that once more people get a chance to hear what she has to offer, that she has the potential to go very far. Although she hails all the way from the Ukraine, we thought it would be great to introduce Alia and her music to people here in the States. In our interview below, we got a chance to know more about Alia and her artistry.
CSuiteMusic: Your Instagram profile says you're from Ukraine, what is the music scene like out there?
Alia: Yes, I am from Ukraine, and I want to say that in the last few years our music scene began to change and I’m really happy about that. Ukrainian music became rather European and interesting. Finally, our people started to like not only mostly simple pop music, but also many other genres. And I think that now our music is on the way to great development and changes.
How would you describe your sound and your style?
Now I only perform House music, but I sing in different genres. Recently, I started to make covers with guitarist Roman Umanskiy. Now I'm trying different music to understand what will be closer to me.
How long have you been making music?
I've been making music since my childhood, really from 8 years old. I always liked to sing and I just created my own words and melodies. Then I started to write words in the notebook, but if I read it now they are a little bit silly, but I was just a child. I couldn't even imagine that I would connect my life with music. It seems like it had lived inside me and just burst out.
What do you want to accomplish with your music?
I want to know that people live some moments of their life with my music. I want to know they are going through something with it, good or bad. I want to affect someone's life and mood, to help to feel the fullness of life. I also listen to this kind of music and I know how it is. I want to influence people's feelings. Also, I would be happy to write soundtracks for movies.
How are you getting your music out there to new fans?
It might be strange, but I still have not shared my own music with the world. But I think I'll soon be ready to do it. I post on YouTube and social networks where people can find me.
Who are some of your influences?
If we are talking about musicians, it's Beyonce, I think she is a great woman. Also I'm inspired by Florence and The Machine, Coldplay, ONUKA, Jamala, On-The-Go and a lot of people who make me experience with them.
If there’s one artist/band that you could work with (dead or alive) who would that be?
I would like with any of those who inspire me, I’ve just said about them. I would be happy to work with any of them.
What inspires you to create music?
Making music is an expression of feelings for me. When I sing I feel alive, and I think I can live a lot of different lives in it. Anything can inspire me: rain, people, behavior, pain, love, all life, which makes me feel both good and bad and I am grateful for everything.
