Today on our Hot Seat we have Neo Soul Artist Dahshanae with us. Let’s have a chat with her.
Twist Online : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers.
Dahshanae : My name is Dahshanae, I’m a Neo Soul Artist and I make music for bad ass Introverts or just people in general who love great music and great vibes while still being able to be human, have fun and learn from their mistakes along the way.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Dahshanae : Definitely Janet Jackson and Beyonce. These two women are so fierce and growing up I loved just watching them perform because you knew everytime they hit the stage, they were going to give you the best vocal performance, the best dance breakdown and the overall best experience you could imagine.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent EP project ‘Distant’ ?
Dahshanae : My EP Distant is a acoustic based project that goes through the motions of understanding life lessons, self love and appreciation of the simple things in life. This EP is such a bittersweet project for me because it was one of those projects that truly I relate to and have a everlasting love for. I wrote and produced the project and it’s available right now everywhere music is sold or streamed.
Twist Online : Any particular track from the EP, that’s your favorite?
Dahshanae : I love all the songs obviously and depending on the day it changes for me but my ultimate favorite song is definitely “Beautiful Day”. I kind of go into depth of my love for the Ocean and how I had to come to realization that I can’t help who hurts me but I can choose who hurts me again.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Dahshanae : I’ve been receiving so much love and support from my friends and family to people in cities and countries that I haven’t even been to yet so it’s very humbling.
Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
Dahshanae : I love writing and working in the studio because that’s where I get to really be creative and free but when I finish a song the first thing on my mind is, “I can’t wait to perform this!” So I love both so much but I would definitely say Performing is my absolute favorite thing ever. I definitely can’t wait to perform the songs from my EP.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve?
Dahshanae : The biggest goals I’ve ever set for myself is to educate through music, send great vibes and to overall just make a difference in the music industry as well as in someones life that needs encouraging.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Dahshanae : Yes! I’m working on my third EP, “Comfortable” right now so that’s amazing. I’m giving everyone such a different vibe for this project and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it. I also have a EP called UNsrry Vol 1 which features myself, and rappers Tazzie H and Chewy bandz that will be available July 27th.
