"I'm disconnected from the World"
Francesca Monte - Interview
When did you start to get interested in music?
Thanks to my father, who had a collection of vinyls, I start listening to Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Genesis and many more, becoming passionate about Psychedelic and Alternative Rock.
Being influenced by R’n’B, Swing, Pop Punk and Emo/Trap as well, I starts to compose my first songs at the piano at the age of 14.
If you were an advertisement, which would your slogan be?
I’m disconnected from the World.
Which is the part you enjoy the most about music?
About making music, I really love the research behind the production.
I love collaborating, travelling to create something new and seeing people who can rely to my lyrics.
Most artists say that through their art they learn more about themselves, heal injuries… In which aspects has music helped you?
I started writing songs to express my emotions, my life and my experience. It’s a way to exorcise my sorrow.
My mission is being able to give emotions to my listeners and fans that can rely to my lyrics.
What does music mean to you?
Music for me is a way to translate feelings that are usually impossible to describe into something concrete for people to understand.
Who are your idols?
Thanks to my father, who had a collection of vinyls, I start listening to Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Genesis and many more, becoming passionate about Psychedelic and Alternative Rock. Being influenced by R’n’B, Swing, Pop Punk and Emo/Trap as well, I starts to compose my first songs at the piano at the age of 14. The musical influences and the negative experiences I lived, are still helping my compositional research.
If you didn’t like music, what would you like to do?
I love cooking.
Do you consider that nowadays there are more or less opportunities for new artists? Why?
I think there are more opportunities for artists today than ever before.
Technology is helping a lot of musicians in writing, production and distribution.
People do not need a big commercial studio and a label to release new music anymore.
Moreover, communication has never been so fast and effective.
In order to be successful, an artist should be consistent and with original ideas
What would your idyllic life as an artist be like?
First of all I would like to be back at gigging.
I would love to tour all over the world and hear my fans singing my songs out loud back to me.
