Exclusive Interview with I.Am.Tru.Starr
Hi I.Am.Tru.Starr! Great to have you here today!
It’s great to be here! Thank you very much for having me.
Who are your greatest musical influences and have they changed over the years? If we’re talking greatest influences then we gotta start with Prince, Donny Hathaway, George Clinton, Al green, and OG’s like that. Then since I’m a neo-soul baby it filters down to D’Angelo, Bilal, Erykah Badu, Music Soulchild, Jill Scott, etc… Now a days though my biggest musical influences are my friends. They’re all crazy talented and inspire to be the best artist I can be every day. They push me.
Please tell us more about the writing process behind “VIVA”.
The writing process for this album was more of a life process. I had to go through some things this year in order to write the songs on here. A lot of ups and downs. Which has made me appreciate life even more.
Do you have a special place where you like to write and create new music?
I create anywhere. But I do have a nice studio set up in my house and I can pretty much create anytime I want or when the inspiration hits me. I do, however, write my best lines on the toilet lol.
What have been some of your greatest experiences as an artist?
I’ve met and been in the studio with my songwriting idol. I’ve performed with Ricky Martin and Bad Bunny. I’ve made some lifelong friends in this music thing which is very rare since everyone is usually so cutthroat with each other. There have been some cool ones for sure. I had a conversation with Lil Peep before he died. I’ll always remember that one. Yeah, there’s been some moments.
What can we expect from you in 2021?
I just started my label VIVA House Records. My clothing/merch line VIVA clothing co. So I’m just focused on the continuing of building my brand and touring once this Covid crap is over. Until then wear your mask! 2021 will be nothing but more music, art, and life.
Please share with our reader how they can stay in touch with you and your latest music releases!!
My new album “VIVA” is available everywhere so please go stream it and tell all your friends to do the same. Y’all gonna love it trust me.
