Today on our Hot Seat we have a very talented artist Jaclyn Walker with us. Her talent and skills has earned her exceptional response. Lets have a chat with her.
Twist Online : Please introduce yourself to our readers.
Jaclyn Walker: Hello everyone, my name is Jaclyn Walker.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Jaclyn Walker : I have been inspired to sing and write songs since my early childhood. I believe that it was simply a natural instinct.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recently released track ‘Breathe Again’?
Jaclyn Walker : It could be about any particular situation in ones life that appears to be out of reach or an emotional rollercoaster ride. It is human nature to fall to the knees in times of despair. It is a sign of
weakness and a cry to God or the universe for help. Anyone can relate to this record, which is the key
component to a universal record.
Twist Online : How was your working experience with Lodato, Joseph Duveen and under overdrive production in this track?
Jaclyn Walker : I have been working with these guys since I was eighteen. I don’t think I’ve ever been around them without laughing and having a great time. Joe and I have a connection with our musical ears… we can sit for hours tweaking one chord or vocal. We have our inside jokes.. like if a vocal or chord is off one of us says it’s “messing with my equilibrium.”
Twist Online : What kind of response has it received so far?
Jaclyn Walker : The record seams to be doing really well on Beatport and peaked at number 2 this week. It has over 100k plays on Spotify also. It’s only been out for a week, so it certainly looks promising.
Twist Online : Last few months have proved to be good for you. So many achievements and nominations. You must be happy with the way things have gone so far?
Jaclyn Walker : I’m happy with everything for sure, but I’m more interested in hearing the fans sing the record with me. Awards and nominations are great but it’s not why I do this. I do it for authentic experiences musically, because it feeds my soul.
Twist Online : What attracts you more performing on stage or working in studios?
Jaclyn Walker : Wow! That’s one of the best questions I’ve ever gotten. Hmmm… that’s tough. They are both so different because the studio is were I create the song I will eventually sing live on the stage. The stage gives me an adrenaline rush, and the studio gives me a therapy session. I think performing is the best way of communicating with listeners. So the winner is performing, although it is not as comfortable as the studio, it is ultimately the reason I create the songs in the first place.
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
Jaclyn Walker : I know this may sound bizarre but I am currently really into hit records from the 1940’s. So I guess jazz.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve as a music artist?
Jaclyn Walker : My number one goal as an artist is to stay true to myself. I will not change or alter who I am for anyone or anything.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Jaclyn Walker : I am always working on projects. I’m writing records for other artists and myself at the moment.
Twist Online : Are you active on social media? What’s the best way to follow you online?
Jaclyn Walker : Yes I am.
