The internet is my Oyster -Talitha

” 

Hi, my name's Talitha, and I make music from my bedroom.

I don't know when exactly I knew I wanted to be an artist - it's just something that's always felt natural like walking.

 

When I was 14 I was inspired by my fellow artist and old Highschool bestie, Kelly Dante, to start a YouTube Channel ( This was when being a YouTuber wasn't cool) and began posting what I consider now to be 'did I really upload that' cover videos. would post here and there and dropped some original songs, but was never really consistent, to be honest, I thought it would only take a couple of songs and boom homegirl was gone be on billboards... lol, far from it. 

 

 It wasn't until 2017 when I realised time is flying by and I need to get my act together and take music seriously. The local studio/ youth centre I used to go to had shut down and I couldn't afford studio time so I went on good old Google and typed in 'How to record songs at home'. I spent hours and hours watching tutorials and courses on how to mix and record music; bought some cheap gear on Amazon and started releasing covers back to back non-stop to practice my mixing skills and to try to build myself a platform. 

So many covers but not enough original content - I decided to stop making covers and instead to focus on the latter, and then I released my 'first' serious single 'Okay'. In the 10 years since I started my YouTube Channel, I really thought I'd have blown by now, but thank goodness I haven't yet (manifesting & praying & trusting God's timing) I feel more confident about myself NOW as an artist, image and sound. 

 

All in all, I'd like to say I make music to help people feel and forget- either way, you'll catch a vibe. 

To clarify, we all have songs that we play when we want to forget all our worries in the world - like when you go to a club and that song comes on that has you fist-pumping the air, and you totally forget that deadline in 2 days. Again, sometimes we wanna FEEL something, we're lonely we wanna FEEL comfort, heartbroken? I'll write a song you can relate to.. even better, just got your nails done, hair did? Aight, a bad bish anthem is on the way, sis.  Not to get all 'dEeP & StUfF' but, I believe music is more than just a beat and words, it has a strong influence on our mood - the frequencies travelling through our eardrums all affect us. That's why I'm really cautious about what I release. If anything, I will always try to emit positive vibes or something that will put you in a better mood - if I sing a sad song, I hope it's more comforting than sad.. you get my drift. 

My mood changes a lot and so does my music style. I might make a Dark pop bop one day or an alternative R&B masterpiece, I don't like to box myself. 

If you read through all of this, wow. Thank you!
