"Let the course of life guide you. Making music and leaning between musicians is the key"
Raquel Brandía - Interview
When did you start to get interested in music?
The first time I saw a piano when it was three months old, I could only make it squeal and pound on it with my little hands.
I have saved the video as a treasure because I would love to bring it to light for a video clip.
If you were an advertisement, which would your slogan be?
Let the course of life guide you. Making music and leaning between musicians is the key.
Deja que el curso de la vida te guíe. Hacer música y apoyarse entre músicos, es la clave.
Which is the part you enjoy the most about music?
The hardest part is when you are transitioning from one project to another.
When you decide to change course and try other paths. When your artist grows up and wants to take other routes.
That is the most beautiful part. The first song that comes to you after your last project. I always cry, I can’t help it, I’m a Pisces.
Most artists say that through their art they learn more about themselves, heal injuries… In which aspects has music helped you?
It has helped me to trust and believe in myself, in my instincts. It has inspired me and made me have butterflies in my stomach. When I have been sad it has been my channel of channeling negative emotions. It has changed my mood, from a shitty day to a good day.
What does music mean to you?
Therapy and connection to something greater and spiritual.
Who are your idols?
The great divas of pop (Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Céline Dion, Britney Spears, Leona Lewis).
I have learned everything from them, I am a self-taught person and I have learned my style and my way of singing thanks to seeing them and seeing them for hours.
In Spanish territory, classics like Alejandro Sanz and Luis Miguel have also influenced me. And some newer ones like Pablo Alborán.
If you didn’t like music, what would you like to do?
Help people. Be psicologist.
In a way, I already am when I want to channel my emotions into songs and make people feel identified.
It’s like a way for people to feel and let off steam through my music.
Do you consider that nowadays there are more or less opportunities for new artists? Why?
Many more opportunities, no doubt. Here he who really works and sows, can reap.
We have many means to show ourselves and with more power than ever. We just have to be a little strategist and work very hard.
What would your idyllic life as an artist be like?
Having my study in my house (I already have that for now and I feel lucky). Being able to compose and get to produce my music. To be able to retire for a time to a rural house close to nature to create my records with the people I love and to do my tours filling rooms all over the world. Exciting people. Passing through skins.
