Personal Interview with Stefany
What makes this kind of music “good” to you?
The song makes me happy and answers lots of questions. It does not matter what the language is, love is understood everywhere.
Why did you choose to play this kind of music?
I was more specialized in Ballads and Musicals as well as German Pop, however I privately like this style of music so I wanted to see if I can do it.
Let’s Talk about your music and your last work… I like to perform in front of large audiences and love when I get a good response from people listening. I enjoyed working with Howie Moscovitch from Radio Intimate Productions in Nashville who guided me with the song and did the production and final mix.
How do you feel about the internet in the music business?
I think the internet is a blessing and a curse. A song can be distributed faster because of the internet, however the sale of physical CD has been allmost killed. Streaming is unfortunate for small performers, as they do not make any money.
What are the plans for the future?
I like to continue along this style and hope, that Howie continues working with me on the next project.
How has your music evolved since you first began playing music?
In the beginning I played a backing track and sang to it without interaction with the crowd, becaause I was too shy to talk. I just wanted to sing and nothing else. With time I started to learn, that I need to entertain more and talk to people during a performance.
Could you briefly describe the music-making process?
I usually come up with an idea at night and start writing down some lyrics. I then sing a few lines to a producer, who then puts these ideas into a melody. We are then working on the melody to make it full and interesting through the use of instruments.
