VASSY – Concrete Heart |
TSS: You began your music career singing indie/pop music. What made you decide to switch to EDM?
VASSY: My transition to EDM music was a total organic accident. A song I wrote got in the hands of David Guetta and took off all around the world, and I literally had no choice from there! “Bad” really put me on the map and went #1 in over 20 countries!
TSS: You’ve collaborated with some of the biggest names in EDM including David Guetta, Tiesto and Afrojack. Who’s someone you’ve yet to collaborate with but hope to in the future?
VASSY: I would love to work with Calvin Harris! I’ve always loved his music.
TSS: When you’re not making music, who are you listening to?
VASSY: I listen to a lot of music that is different from my own. But generally I’m listening to a new song that I am working on or listening to songs that other artists/songwriters send to me.
TSS: In 2018 you created Kiss My VASSY, which is an imprint under Sony Music. What was the inspiration behind this?
VASSY: The imprint stands for being yourself despite not fitting in the box. It has been a great journey and I love working with my team. It has been really nice to finally have the opportunity to take control creatively and make the music that truly fulfills and excites me.
TSS: Your latest single, “Concrete Heart,” reached number one on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs Chart. How did this incredible single come to be?
VASSY: I’ve been wanting to release a pop-leaning dance record for a while, one that expresses the vulnerabilities of being in love in a very optimistic and hopeful way. We can all relate to the feeling of rejection, but I also wanted to showcase the feeling of hope and the idea of having the right to love whoever you want.
TSS: You’ve been so successful in your music career. What’s one piece of advice you’d give to someone who’s just starting out?
VASSY: My one piece of advice is to take every rejection as a redirection. I always try and remember that, so I don’t get down on myself or feel discouraged. Be true to who you are, listen to yourself and follow your instincts. I also think it’s important to put in the time and work. Success in this industry does not happen overnight! Believe in yourself and be humble!
TSS: What can your fans expect from you for the rest of 2019?
VASSY: Lots of new music is on the way in 2019! I’m so excited to share this new music with my fans and I hope to continue to inspire them the same way they inspire me every day – with positive and beautiful energy!
