We caught up with singer, song-writer, mega babe Ebony Frainteso to talk a day in the life, her new track ‘Losing Out’ and kick-starting her music career.
What does a day in the life of you look like?
Every day is different I guess but it’s very exciting
How would you describe your sound?
Soulful but modern…
What’s the best gig you’ve ever played?
Well I’ve just started if I’m being honest but I have a small show coming up which I can’t wait for
Who did you listen to growing up?
Ciara, Nelly ,Pussycat dolls, Akon, Shakira , R. Kelly
What’s your guilty pleasure track?
I really don’t know haha
What’s the last album you listened to all the way through?
Oh, I haven’t done this in a while. But I believe it was lemonade that album will forever be breath taking, and the visuals for the album wow just wow.
What’s been your career highlight/proudest moment?
I couldn’t really say there has been ‘one’ I think just looking back and seeing how ideas have come to life makes me feel real proud.
Who’s the coolest person you’ve worked with so far?
Hmm I suppose there are a couple people but I’m going to hold back on this one as I know opportunities are about to open up to work with more industry creatives but if there was one person I’d love to work with at the moment it would definitely have to be….
Who are you listening to at the moment?
Sabrina claudio , sza ,kaliuchis , RAYE , iamddb
What advice do you have for aspiring artists trying to break into the industry?
First of all I think there’s a need to understand what you really want to achieve, have a solid direction set, get your mind set in check because there definitely are a lot of highs and lows, especially when starting out – not everything goes to plan and some of your best work will be done spontaneously. Besides that, get a great team around you that, believe in your vision and obsess over it the way you do because that energy is unmistakable, the company you keep and atmosphere you emerge yourself in really has a direct effect on the reality you create for yourself. But yeah, connect with people that have understanding of the industry and, most importantly, be you and believe the rest is to be figured out on the way…
