"Each concert is like a blank canvas"
Gigi McFarlane - Interview
How many years have you been singing and playing music?
Living professionally from music since the age of 25, that is 7 years ago.
If you were an advertisement, which would your slogan be?
The beginning of every concert is like a blank canvas.
What is your main inspiration when you are creating?
It is always different and therefore, different things always come out, haha.
Most artists say that through their art they learn more about themselves, heal injuries… Which aspects has your art helped you?
In many ways, I recognise that I have give refuge to myself on the stages to escape from reality.
When I’m on stage my life stops mattering, I completely forget about my personal things, I fill myself with strength and my only mission is to create an unforgettable moment for the audience with my music, dancing, making them participate, laughing with them, giving them prominence, making them feel good … and perhaps they will also forget their personal life during that concert.
My aunt, Denese Shervington, said a few words that marked me forever: You were born with a gift and your mission is to share it with the world.
What does music mean to you?
Music has the power to change the mood, it has as much power as love.
What would you say to all those people who say to artists “Don’t try it is not worth it?”
Better nobody ever dares to say that to me, hahaha. The famous phrase “WANT IS POWER” is very true.
Who are your idols?
Anyone who knows how to value life.
If you could change the world, what would you do?
Take Trump out of power, hahaha. It is an infinite answer.
If you didn’t like music what would you like to do?
I am an illustrator, I paint pictures as much as I act. In my song PAINT THE MUSIC I talk about the link between music and painting.
