Interview: Ozzie Aguilera tells us more about the debut EP EVOLVING

We had the pleasure of speaking with the incredible Ozzie Aguilera via her car recently and we felt the love. We heard about her new single EVOLVING, her decade-long respect for Kali Uchis and with a cute dreamy air wiggle, we find a lovely human who projects peace and love in an often harsh world.

Hello there Ozzie Aguilera. Thank you for joining us today. What did you have for dinner last night and where in the world do we find you?

Ozzie: Hi! Thank you for having me. I appreciate you and everyone at A&R FACTORY so much! I actually had steak last night. One of my really good friends took me out to celebrate my birthday and the release of my debut EP “Evolving”. It was amazing, but I’m currently in my car. I just finished wrapping up a session at the studio.

Please tell us more about your 5-track debut new release EVOLVING.

Ozzie: “Evolving” is my coming-of-age story. I had a really tough upbringing and I wanted to showcase where I am at right now, on my journey through healing. The healing stage can bring up a lot of different emotions that you may not be ready for, but you’ve got to take the initiative and trust the process. I intend to reassure people from different walks of life that being vulnerable is necessary at times. It’s okay not to be okay, but giving up should never be an option.

If you could perform live with any music in the world, who would it be and why?

Ozzie: Kali Uchis! I would love to work with her one day. I flew down to Houston last year to see her in concert, and she killed it. She’s set to go on her own tour this year, so I’m excited to see miss Kali again. I personally have been obsessed with her for almost a decade now, and It makes me so happy to see her thriving in every single thing that she does.

How would you describe your sound to an alien who has just landed on earth?

Ozzie: I would describe it as a smooth and dreamy air wiggle, haha. Hopefully, he or she is able to even understand me, but I’d much rather perform my leading single from “Evolving” for them.

Do you have any specific goals for the rest of 2023?

Ozzie: I want to step out of my comfort zone and dip into different styles, but I am for sure still going to be releasing music that comes from my heart. As humans, we’re constantly evolving, and I plan on staying true to myself. I want to keep growing as an individual and never take my artistic abilities for granted. I’ve been working towards this moment for many years, and I am so glad that the ball is finally rolling.

What was the last movie you watched?

Ozzie: I am not even going to lie, I couldn’t tell you the last time that I watched a movie. Although, I’m currently binge-watching this show on Netflix “Travelers.” It is so good! I wish we had the ability to time travel.

Last, what hopes do you have for humanity as a whole and do you think kindness is lacking when it’s needed most?

Ozzie: World peace seems far-fetched, but It shouldn’t be impossible. I pray that all of humanity will be at peace one day. Absolutely! Kindness is for sure lacking when it’s needed most. It doesn’t hurt anyone to be a decent human being, there is enough darkness in this world.

2020’s headache cure: Anna Luther is phenomenally pure on the mind-cleansing ‘Heavy’

22 year old Anna Luther is a soulful indie-pop artist and music coach who has an aura that is so real, her smile is sweet and genuine, plus she is an outrageously talented creative as heard vividly on her latest relevant single ‘Heavy‘.

Taking time to fully develop her own original style and adding in nostalgic synths, ambient sounds and speaking to our souls deep inside; this is a singer-songwriter/producer that takes much care with each second of her music delivery.

This is a sonic soundscape that I haven’t ever heard before and my pesky headache cleared during this wonderful creation. A few tears slipped down my cheeks as I listened closely, my tired mind felt like it was transported to safe place by an illuminating angel.

Things have been so heavy this year and life can feel like you are carrying a rucksack of cement bricks all the time. This is a deep soul who thinks like vary rare people do and puts a lot of pressure on herself to succeed. Her mind is a whirlwind of thoughts and ideas, as she searches for that happy place on a road that is full of detours and punctures that either make you stronger, or knock you down for good. She faces a challenge that so many of us battle with, as asking for help can be tough as you have been let down before. The feeling here is that she is manifesting her thoughts to make this a reality and this is the power of real music. It can heal all wounds, no matter how deep and traumatic.

Her vocals are so spectacular and beautiful, there is a peaceful ambiance everywhere and her music is always evolving. ‘Heavy’ from the incredible soul Anna Luther, is a mind-bending experience that will take you places you didn’t know existed.

Hear this wonderfully soulful single on Anna’s Spotify and see her adventures on IG & FB.
