So, let's see what happens when Duda visits Section 36 Music!
Your debut single, “Lost Messages” is beyond outstanding. What can you tell me about it?
Thank you so much! Lost Messages is a song I composed after a hard breakup. What's interesting is that I actually wrote it in one sitting, and during the heat of the emotions; I feel that's when the best songs come out! Now that I put it out there, I feel like writing this song was therapeutic, and I feel so much better. I always enjoyed writing songs, but I would keep them to myself; this was the first one I decided to release, probably because it best encapsulates my feelings, due to when it was written. I hope anyone who has gone, or is going through, a breakup can relate to it and scream their emotions out. I'm shocked and humbled by the response, and I can't wait for people to see what's next!
Your social media is full of cover videos. What do you enjoy about recording those?
In the fall you’ll be starting school at Berklee College of Music. Why did you want to study there?
Berklee has always been a dream of mine to attend. It's one of the best music schools in the world and is definitely the best place for me to grow as an artist. I'm very excited about being able to create with people who have the same passions as me. Come see me in Boston haha.
Who or what would you consider your biggest musical influences?
What would you say is your biggest challenge with your music career?
Since I'm currently an independent artist, time management! I had no blueprints of where or how to start. When you're an independent artist, you have to be your own advocate. I had to book and schedule everything you've seen so far! It's super rewarding but very challenging.
What are your immediate music goals?
I'm definitely excited to hear more music from her!
As always, I want to thank Emily for visiting with us, and for sending along the pictures (taken by Lucas Menezes) to accompany the interview.
Thanks again Duda, and good luck reaching your goals!
