I think my progress was proof to myself and others that you can accomplish anything you put your mind to
How are you taking charge of your music right now?
I’ve always wanted to record my own music and recently I really took charge of that. My music career started off independently, because I didn’t have a lot of people to reach out to for advice. So there was a lot of research involved when it came to grounding this dream into reality. I found a recording studio in Philadelphia which was really helpful during this time. I recorded my first E.P. there, but I liked the idea of being able to understand the production myself so I could have more creative control over the final product. I learned the basics as much as I could on YouTube, but it was difficult to grasp some of the more complicated topics without having one-on-one instruction. After a lot of trial and error, I went back to the studio and enrolled myself in an audio engineering course. I learned all the fundamentals of recording, mixing, and mastering, which was definitely a step in the right direction. It’s really encouraging as an artist to have physical evidence of your progress. I know that if I hadn’t put the effort into practicing more professionally, I wouldn’t have been able to create much more seamless productions in my eyes compared to my previous work.
How are you charging up while promoting your latest music?
During this time I’m working to release my first album, “Heart Expansion”. In the meantime, my music is available on all streaming platforms. You can check out that and more in the links below
hat is a big declaration you want to make known when it comes to your music?
I think my progress was proof to myself and others that you can accomplish anything you put your mind to. Which might sound corny, but every time I realized that the power really is in your hands alone to turn your life around. It’s frustrating when you feel like the people around you don’t see your vision the way you do. And it can be disappointing when you pour your heart into something that doesn’t perform as well as you want it to. It can lead you to question yourself and want to give up. But these experiences were necessary, because they’ve taught me to keep fighting even when you feel like no one is listening. There’s a lot of freedom in self sufficiency, and it can be empowering to realize how much I’ve accomplished by myself. I’m beyond grateful to have gone through what I did because, while I’m still learning to become comfortable receiving, I will always have my strength and independence to guide me in the right direction.
Is there more of you as an artist that fans haven't seen yet?
Yes! And I’m excited to explore the different aspects of my personality through music- the good, the bad, and the shocking. I believe we are all multifaceted and have many parts of ourselves to share with the world, there is no single definition of who we are. I’d love to take on different lyrical topics and ideas in the future… self expression is limitless.
What do you have lined up performance wise for your fans to listen to the music?
During the upcoming months I’ll be continuing to release more personal and music related content on my Instagram (@anishalabelle) and YouTube channel. Follow me to stay up to date!
Is there something that you could take it or leave it when it comes to the music industry?
That’s a fun question… I’m not a huge fan of the whole “cancel culture” thing that’s going on in society now. I think there’s been a major lack of focus on the messages and impact of today’s music, and more on the mistakes the artists themselves have made in the process. I’m hoping communities become more accepting of their creators in the future, people don’t seem to realize how emotionally tolling it can be to experience such amounts of hate. We should remember that though they may be glorified through the media, these artists are still people who pour their time, effort, and souls into creating the music we know and love today. Everyone faces challenges and makes mistakes, so it’s important to learn from those faults and move towards a better future, rather than villainize people.
Before you get into what you'll be making next, what is something that is the deal breaker for you on whether the project gets made?
The only dealbreaker I would have is not being able to put all of the songs I wanted on my upcoming album. Since I placed emphasis on the way the lyrics tie together, I believe a story is able to be told. I wanted all of the songs to connect and flow, which is a very important aspect for me when it comes to writing. I also have a lot of ideas when it comes to visuals, so I wouldn’t want to sacrifice those either.
