V-Henny: What was your first experience with music?
Andromedv: My first experience with music was in my childhood. I remember sitting in my grandmother’s living room, surrounded by family, as they played soulful tunes on all different types of Caribbean instruments. We had congas, güiras, maracas, microphones, and the whole family all together! That was the moment I fell in love with music and realized its power to evoke emotions and bring people together.
V-Henny: What motivates you to create?
Andromedv: I have always felt connected to others in a way I could never explain, yet music helps me bridge that gap. There is this feeling of abstractness that I feel at home in, and the only way I am able to embody it and translate it is through poetry, lyricism, and music!
V-Henny: What is your songwriting process like?
Andromedv: I sit with a beat that calls to parts of me, and wait for a melody, or three, to come to me. From there, I freestyle and weave the song together. I think that’s what they call a top-line writer?
V-Henny: What song was the most difficult for you to write?
Andromedv: The most difficult song for me to write was “My People,” because it was such an important song for me to create, and I was nervous the meaning would get lost in translation regarding how I felt on the topic! When we take into consideration the societal institutions we have created and maintained… I think this song will hit a lot of people.
V-Henny: Tell me about your techniques for overcoming creative blocks.
Andromedv: I don’t usually have creative blocks, I consider these resting periods. I wait until inspiration strikes, or until I have a lot of sentiments to release, then I make a song! Especially since it is all based on freestyle, it really just comes in waves, and I ride them out.
V-Henny: What were some of the steps you had to take to get to where you’re at in your career?
Andromedv: Building my career required dedication, perseverance, and a lot of hard work. I started by honing my skills as a singer and songwriter, constantly seeking opportunities to perform and showcase my music. I collaborated with fellow musicians, producers, and industry professionals, expanding my network and learning from their expertise. I also took advantage of the digital landscape, utilizing social media and online platforms to share my music and connect with a wider audience. Each step, from recording demos to performing live shows, has been a building block in my journey.
V-Henny: Have you ever felt discouraged by the industry and if so how did you overcome the thought/feeling?
Andromedv: I have felt discouraged by the industry plenty of times, most notably, before I started! Essentially, once I started, and reminded myself that there was only one me, and that everyone has people that they relate to, I felt much more secure in my authenticity! Also, there is no need for imposter syndrome, when you are being true to yourself!
V-Henny: How do you define success as an artist?
Andromedv: I define success as an artist by the impact my music has on people’s lives. It’s not solely about chart positions or accolades, but rather the ability to touch hearts, evoke emotions, and inspire positive change. Success, to me, is connecting with my audience on a profound level and creating a sense of catharsis and understanding through my songs. It’s about staying true to my artistic vision and using my platform to shed light on important issues and advocate for diversity, unity, and resilience. Ultimately, success is the ability to leave a lasting impact and make a difference through my music and/or brand.
V-Henny: What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
Andromedv: If it weren’t for my music career, I would probably be working in some capacity that allows me to connect with people and make a positive impact. I’ve always been drawn to fields like counseling, education, or social work, where I can help others navigate through their own adversities and find healing. Regardless of my path, I know that I would still find ways to incorporate music into my life, as it is a fundamental part of who I am.
V-Henny: Describe how music is important to society.
Andromedv: Music is incredibly important to society because it serves as a powerful means of communication and expression. It has the ability to transcend cultural, linguistic, and societal boundaries, touching people from all walks of life. Music can evoke emotions, provoke thought, and provide solace during challenging times. It has the capacity to amplify diverse voices and shed light on important social issues, fostering empathy, understanding, and dialogue. In a metaphysical aspect, all things are vibrational, as such, music can literally change reality!
V-Henny: What’s next for you?
Andromedv: What’s next for me is an exciting continuation of my artistic journey. I am currently working on new music that delves deeper into the themes of diversity, adversity, and catharsis. I’m eager to explore new sonic landscapes and collaborate with other talented artists who share my vision. Additionally, I am excited to further develop my live performance skills and connect with even more fans through concerts and tours. As my career progresses, I hope to continue evolving as an artist, pushing boundaries, and using my music as a catalyst for positive change. The future holds endless possibilities, and I can’t wait to embark on this next chapter with all of you by my side.
