Behind The Music with Talia Perez on 'West Coast'

I wanted this song to give listeners a fresh perspective on my music as well as be a fun summer song that could be perfect for any summer party playlist.

I live in: Los Angeles, CA
This song is about enjoying summertime at the beach and chillin’ with friends. This release represents my current music direction by the way I arranged, wrote, and produced the music. https://soundcloud.com/talia-shalom-931265351/west-coast-mp3/s-qoI4c

It’s got a fun mix of electronic synths, fast paced beats, sweet soulful vocals, lighthearted lyrics and catchy hooks that show a different side of my musical sound.

I wanted this song to give listeners a fresh perspective on my music as well as be a fun summer song that could be perfect for any summer party playlist. Always have excellence in whatever you do. “Excellence cannot be hidden.” That always motivates me to do my absolute best to create exceptional music.

Song writing ...
I've learned to always write music that has a purpose, that inspires, motivates, tells a captivating story, and takes the listener on a journey through the lyrics and sound.

Progress:
These past few months I've been focusing on releasing more music and building a compilation of songs to share. I've been writing alot lately and hope to release an EP soon, stay tuned!

Advise:
I understand now that using time wisely is so important. Tuning out distractions and intentionally staying focused on work is so key to achieving and reaching goals. 

I mainly spend all my time writing, producing, and recording new music 24/7. I purposefully now and  intentionally make an effort to remove distractions, in doing so I've been able to accomplish more of my goals without stressing over short timeframes. I believe that staying focused is very effective in getting work accomplished.

Music business...
I think the music business today is an excellent place for indie artists and musicians to release their music and reach larger audiences, especially through various social media platforms. The age of technology and media has certainly made it possible for artists to reach worldwide audiences and connect/engage with fans and music artists, so in my opinion the music business has changed with the times and it leaves room for artists to thrive.
