Hi, my name is Saevi. I'm from Manhattan, NY. I like to sing and do other artistic things.
1. Has your musical journey had a deliberate direction, or did it simply gradually evolve in whatever direction it found?
My musical journey has had a deliberate direction. I know exactly where I want to be success wise and I have taken my time to find my way there the way I see fit.
2. Who is your top five favorite Artists of all time? Why those artists?
Well for starters, that’s pretty hard because I listen to almost every genre. I guess I’ll just name one from each that I respect musically. Beyoncè, Ella Fitzgerald, Big Daddy Kane, Queen (band), Minnie Ripperton. I choose these people because they set standards for me growing up on what certain sounds, artistic capabilities can be done to connect and captivate a crowd within their own realm of artistry.
3. What do you enjoy most about being an artist?
I like the fact I have the ability to express myself and through that expression of me speaking on personal experience, it allows me to connect with others who are similar.
4. What are your plans for any future releases?
I have a few singles I’m looking forward to working on and getting out to the public. I can’t wait to work with Pete Monk!
5. What is your biggest musical challenge?
Whistle register. I can do it but I haven’t mastered it. One day I will.
6. How do you go about writing a song? Do you have a melody in your head and then write the other music for it?
Sometimes it happens that way, I’ll hum a tune and the words will come. Other times I’ll just have thoughts on my mind and a line will pop up. I just work from there at that point. I’m a very inspired kind of writer for most of my works.
7. Are you creative in other disciplines?
You mean like other instruments? I played violin when I was younger and I know the basics for piano. I took lessons in college. I’d love to hone my skills on those instruments as I further my career. I have many ideas.
8. Would you like to collaborate with anyone? If so who and why?
Yes, I would love to collaborate with Schoolboy Q. I think we mesh well musically. i like his sound. I also like how he tells stories in his music videos. It’s very engaged like back in the day. He also just does well with crossover collaborations in hip hop and r&b from what i’ve heard so far.
9. If you could pass on a nugget of wisdom to the next musical generation, what would it be?
Protect your energy and your craft. Never force anyone to see your greatest. Keep working hard and move around those who are trying to feed you their narratives of what you should do without listening to what you want. You’ll always know when advice and opportunities are genuine. If it doesn’t feel right. Leave!!! Some things that glitter could just be shit with confetti on it.
10. How can people find you and your music?
My music is streaming on all platforms. Apple, Tidal, Spotify, to name a few
