RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW EDIE YVONNE WHAT HAPPENED?

Hiya Edie thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.

What made you decide that music is a thing for you?

EY: I have been singing ever since I was little. My Abuela is a Nicaraguan opera singer and music was always around me as a child.

Introduce us to you all and your musical history.

EY: I started out doing tens and tens of musicals at YADA – Youth Academy of Dramatic Arts. During the pandemic I made a short film “At Ease” and had the opportunity to write a song for the film credits. That opened up the flood gates and I haven’t stopped writing since.

What’s the live music scene like in Los Angeles right now? Anyone we should be looking out for (Bar you of course)

EY: I love Haiden Henderson and love Skye Christy. Ava Maybee, Jack Xander…. There are so many incredible intimate venues to play and discover new artists. There is so much potential and opportunities here for emerging artists.

I’ve seen a lot of people struggling for support recently online. Whats your view on the industry?

EY: It takes so much time and energy and outreach for slow growth. I am very grateful for my team to bounce ideas off of and work together to build one audience member at time and to build true connection.

Where do you feel you currently sit within the music industry?

EY: At the very very beginning of my path.

EDIE YVONNE

Tell us Two truths and a lie about you.

EY: I have 4 rescue dogs/pit bulls, I love Britney, I watch Vanderpump on repeat

Do you ever worry about people taking things the wrong way or cancel culture? Discuss….

EY: I just try to approach every experience with sensitivity and compassion and do the best I can.

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories? If not why not?

EY: Not yet.

What was your best experience on stage?

EY: I recently did a small show at Genghis Cohen. I loved it. We performed new songs live for the first time. I think its a perfect venue to play with new material. Shout out to their team!

What was your worst experience on stage?

EY: My first live show, I couldn’t hear anything. It’s a learning experience. I’m trying to get reps in to build experience and confidence.

Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about.

EY: Nicky loves the Beatles. Cormac loves the Beatles. I love the Beatles.

What are the next steps you plan to take as a band to reach the next level?

EY: Really focus on live shows as much as we focus on studio time. That is the next phase for us. We are playing this summer at Licorice PIzza on June 30th and at the Mint August 28th in LA!

I hear you have a new music, what can you tell us about it.

EY: My new song titled 15 (When I Leave) comes out June 14th just in time for summer. I think it has a lot to do with leaving my school and friends to start a new high school. My last day of school was yesterday and it is always hard to say goodbye and let go and the song helps with that healing. There are a lot of personal changes in my life right now and I’m lucky I get to put it all into the music.

What was the recording process like?

EY: We just played over and over again to get the takes we were happy with. It was an exercise in fun and patience.

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?

EY: To be open, vulnerable and open all of the doors of emotions and not hold back.

Would you change anything now it’s finished?

EY: I always want to go back in and redo vocals.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

Peace, please.
