Let me introduce you to Sylvana White
I had the pleasure of an exclusive interview with Canadian singer Sylvana White.
Please introduce yourself to my readers.
Hi my name is Sylvana White! I was born in Montreal, Canada and raised in a musical environment as my parents and other family members were singers and musicians. Ever since I can remember, music has always been my greatest passion.
The Sylvana White interview:
What started you wanting to be involved in the music business?
I realized at an early age that singing and performing were part of me and doing it is where I feel home and at my place. As a singer/songwriter it permits me to express my feelings since I think, that using lyrics and music are a good way to communicate and get messages out there. When I perform a song, whether it is an original or a cover or even someone else’s lyrics, I do it with my heart and soul, as my gesture and expression will make you travel in different little stories. In other words, I literally live the song and am like this in the studio or on a stage simply because I like to keep it real. My favourite expression is KISS ( Keep It Simple & Silly).
How would you describe the sort of songs you perform?
The sort of songs that I perform are a mix of Pop/Rock and Blues since I like to mix different genre and have a versatile sound and voice. I like to be different but it’s not always easy and had my moments where I thought maybe I should fit in the mould …
What would you say are some of the most memorable moments in your career so far?
I’ve had good support from fans, friends and family and they’ve always made sure that I would remember how special I am and that it is more than OK to see out of the box. I remember the first time I performed my third single back when I was with Infini-T, I happened to look more at a particular person in the audience and I did not know her but I felt her sadness at some point and performed the song like it was written for her. She came to see me after the show and told me that because of what I did, it gave her hope she would appreciate life and continue to believe and fight for what she wanted. This girl wanted to kill herself that night and the last thing she wanted to do was to see her favourite singer before she went. You see sometimes it does not take much to help someone and it does not cost anything. My best reward was to see her smile and that she is a very happy person today! Music is the medicine of the mind!
What other acts do you admire the most?
I will not give any names, because there are too many, but I can tell you that what I admire in an artist is their hard work, devotion to their fans, their honesty, originality, true talent and most of all a positive attitude.
What do you have planned for the future?
I just kind of described myself here but it is how I see things too and what I want to continue doing for the future, as I want to travel and sing all over the world and to be able to get as close as possible to my FANS because us, artists, we exist because of them, so don’t they deserve to see us for real and not just on TV, in magazines etc? I see myself performing and singing for as long as I can!!
Anything else you would like to add?
Thank you and hope to see you all very soon!!
