“What do you want to be remembered by?”
“I believe that when you meet people and when you’re in people’s presence, it’s important to make people feel good about themselves and feel loved in your presence. That’s that persons job! I don’t do this all the time. I have bad times but that’s what I would hope to be remembered as.” – LaVoyce
She had been assured to make an exploitation out of the sound booth. Her father, a musical producer, had been accompanied by fellow artist and soon-to-be mother into a recording studio in Dallas, Texas. Instinctively in the middle of the session, the seed within the womb began to sprout. The masses of the studio began to stream out the door for the delivery room. On September 5, 1995, a flower had surfaced unto the world. Demi LaVoyce.
Confident singer and humble songwriter, LaVoyce delivers peace, positivity, and power through her music to unshackle her listeners of baggage and ailing energy. This liberation is pushed for self-submergence unto the presence of love, and encouragement toward individuals and their own accepted endeavors. Soft-spoken and ground-driven, the reticent entrepreneur somehow is able to maintain her humility and reach that which makes her blossom.
The full-time artist quotes:
[Work] Stressful, but things are working in my favor.
With ten tracks on her newly-released album titled “Bloom,” LaVoyce managed to produce all ten, co-producing only two.
“What is the purpose of your music?”
“To convey feelings,” she admits with no hesitation and a slight grin. Following a moment of stillness, she drops her head and her smirk as she continues to ease into a nod. “Feeling understood.”
The divine extract of two musicians had been preordained to grow a fond attachment of music. By the age of seven, she had already discovered her purpose and career dreams in becoming a recording artist. Spending countless nights in the studio with her father, the young phenom was incognizant of the habits she was learning in the moment while watching. She had never been deliberately taught to work the boards.
As it appeared, Demi seemed to have it all together while attending Booker T. Washington, High School for the Performing & Visual Arts. There, she spent a bit of time crafting her art in choir along with piano seminars. During this time, the influence behind her initiatory album crept into her life. The talented scholar had invested into a long time relationship, out-dating graduation of six years.
“I never consciously started on the album. I just started making music which was inspired from the breakup.
Pain is the most inspiring and influential. ”
The intro to her musical collection, “Invisible,” expresses her discontentment with tampered emotions and yearning for less distractions. Frequent favorite and hit single follows. “Time.” This painting portrays the post-breakup, resurgence of her former relationship, and willingness to see forgiveness while “tired, but hopeful.”
Not only does the LP provide imagery for heartache, but also supplies a rage of upbeat self-love. LaVoyce amps up the moods with sounds illustrating her self-evaluation after completely washing her hands away of her high school sweetheart.
“What makes you happy?”
Things don’t make me happy, anymore. They can make me joyful in the moment but they don’t make me happy. People don’t even make me happy, cause people change a lot. So possibility of my dreams and goals actually playing out, that makes me happy.”
“Even if it’s a slim possibility?”
“Doesn’t matter. To me, there is no slim possibility. If that’s what I wanna do — that’s what I’m focused on, things are opening up in that space for me to do it, then cool.”
“Anyone you’d love to co-produce or collaborate with?”
“Frank Ocean. Pharrell. Smino!”
“I really love Frank Ocean, and Beyoncé! Beyoncé is my everything in life. I want the very best for her. I hope she’s having a good day.
She’s excellent, she pays attention to everything…. and she’s a virgo!”
“What about favorite song?”
“I’m torn between ‘Me, Myself, and I’ and ‘ Resentment.’”
“What makes you different from other artists?”
“I’m me! Personality. People can duplicate sound but you can’t duplicate personality.”
This upcoming artist treasures creativity and an empathetic heart, with strapping vocals. Standing at 5’2″, she fears nothing other than living selfishly.
“I could have everything in the world and it’s just me. That sucks, I don’t want that. I don’t wanna die alone.”
“What about anything you could change, what do you feel are your biggest issues?”
“Self doubt, overthinking.”
“Bloom would not have been a success without?”
“Experience. In music and in life. This is probably the best stuff I’ve ever made, just because it’s the most honest stuff I’ve ever made.”
“What do you want to be remembered by?”
“I believe that when you meet people and when you’re in people’s presence, it’s important to make people feel good about themselves and feel loved in your presence. That’s that persons job! I don’t do this all the time. I have bad times but that’s what I would hope to be remembered as.”
In due time, LaVoyce will be discovered as a renowned recording artist. She has learned to trust the process, and is grateful for the space she’s in to move forward. Because of her present dedication and humility, her faith and transparency may reap her the blessings in store. “Bloom” is available everywhere.
