Michelle Galas is a singer songwriter from Guadeloupe (French Caribbean).What made me become a singer is because i like the fact that with a song you can tell what you think and spread a message to people that is a powerful way to make people listen and relate to you.
Michelle Galas, First tell us about the start of your professional career?
I always loved music. One day I have decided to express myself with songs and I started to write and sing them, and then became interested in the music business.
Q: What advice would you give to beginners who are nervous?
The advice I’d give can’t be just one. it is not enough. To make good songs and good music; to work on your skills and talent. Never stop and always be passionate by what you do ; dare to be very creative and remain true to yourself. Learn the music business and how to make money with music and songs. Become an independent artist and have an entrepreneur business mindset.
Q:When you decide it’s time to make a new record, is that more exciting or stressful?
It is exciting, it is a new adventure. I like working on sounds with my music producer even if i do not play any instruments. i have a lot of ideas in my head for melodies and sounds. Each record and song must be a part of my life story, or what i am going through at the moment.
Q: How easily do songs tend to come to you?
When i listen to music or some sounds i can have ideas for a title for a song then i write how i feel when i listen to the music or sounds and then i work on the lyric structure.
Q: What’s your motto or the advice you live by?
My grand father always told me to be independent and do not depend on nobody to earn my living
i stick on that today but that took me long to understand it. By being independent life has shown me the real meaning to be “FREE” and it is more than make your own money it is about your entire life too.
Q: What is your favorite song to belt out at the bar/in the car right now?
Right now i am a huge fan of Lorde i like her song”Green Light”. Its funny that the first verse say this “I do my makeup in somebody else’s car , We order different drinks at the same bars” and you ask me the question of my favourite song to belt out at the bar, or in the car ha ha !! I like the song lyrics and meaning. The voice of Lorde makes you feel like your in a movie, it is powerful..
Q :What are your future goals as a music artist?
Work on my songs, put them out and make the video of them too.
Q: What was your most memorable performance to date?
Did not perform in a long time; working on that now, and i do not care about what some people say that only singers songwriters who perform are real singers songwriter . As other artists i am working hard to make money to finance my music and its promotion. . A lot of artists are in the same situation of me and they Still be called “ARTISTS”.
