MYSSTOREYIAA:  What is your music background?

MYS’STOREY:  My elementary music class was the closest thing to vocal training I have ever received.  I also started writing during that time period.  Soon after, I started singing and dancing with my sister and some friends. In middle school is when I started writing poetry for myself and other people. I won several awards for my poetry. I continued writing and eventually my poetry turned into songs because the words flowed so nicely.  I would have a happy day and I would create a happy song. If I had a bad day, I would create a bad song. I was so excited about my songs that I always shared it with my family and friends. When people began telling me they enjoyed my music and that is should be on the radio, I knew I was extremely blessed with this beautiful talent.  I began to take music seriously. After contemplating whether or not I should pursue music full-time, I decided that it was best to at least try. It is best to try and take the journey then to live life  always wondering what could have happen. At that moment I had no clue what to do first. I went to the studio for a crash course. I also began to brainstorm on ways to gain exposure and build my fan base. My first move was a Myspace music account.  My next moves was the Aquafinia truck and then creating a Reverbnation account.  I then did a small talent show and started networking with local artists.  I then moved on to making my own videos, collaborating with local artists, and topping my local charts.  After that I started recording, editing, and directing my own videos.  My hottest single so far has been Auquafina.  All of my experiences have made me a very developed independent artist.

IAA:  Why do you want to record and release your own music?

MYS’STOREY:  Music has always been a dream of mine. I do more than write music. When I create, I feel the mood of the song.  I go into character and get carried away with my thoughts.  I envision my fans, the video, and the type of personality I would like to explore.  When I’m writing music the last thing on my mind is letting someone else use it.  Although I would write for other artists, I enjoy writing for myself because I can envision myself performing my work

IAA:  What are your songs about?

MYS’STOREY:  My songs are about emotions, experiences, and fantasies.  What I mean by “emotions” for example would be a love song. Like my song “Heaven Forbid” which is a prayer not to fall in love again. The song focuses on why I feel I don’t want to love again and puts it in the form of a prayer.    What I mean by “experiences” can be seen in my song “Nightmare,” which is about get back.  That song doesn’t focus on the emotions I’m feeling; it focuses on the things that I’m doing.  I write about teasing the girl, letting her know what I’m going to do before I do it, while explaining to her that all she says and does to try and stop me only helps me.  In that song I’m exploring the actions of a cruel scorned woman in active get back.    Last but not least  “fantasy”  can be seen in my song “Feelings”.  In this song I’m exploring an imaginary fight between me and my feelings.  I’m trying to inform my partner I can’t win because I can’t see, touch, or smell my attacker.  The attacker is very real, very hurtful, and very effective.  We are effected by emotions. We are at the mercy of time, as time heals all wounds. We can’t grab them and rush them along or throw them out and for that reason that fight will remain imaginary.  We are affected by emotions, emotions are not affected by us.  That’s what makes that song about the fantasy.

IAA:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

MYS’STOREY:  I direct my music towards the grown and happy crowds. My music is for people who are grown enough to know right from wrong, but young enough to still live life to the fullest.  People who feel its ok to walk on the wild side and be yourself. People who respect the fact the others have a right to be themselves as well.  People who are free, easy going, positive and mature. My music ranges from party people to happily married, to newly divorced and single. I even go as far as to explore the I’m single and on the prowl woman. I would say my music is mostly suitable for the 18-35 crowd.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

MYS’STOREY:  Coming up I was influenced by Aaliyah, Whitney Houston, Destiny’s Child & Dru Hill. I was also influenced by Mary J, Usher, K C & Jo Jo, Xscape, and Mariah Carey.  There was just something about the snappy way they told these stories I saw in everyday life.  The beats, the words, and the emotion all went together for me.  I loved these artists’ styles, attitudes, and personalities. Aailyah was the ring leader in my influence circle.  The cool smooth girl next door look, with a sweet attitude, baggy jeans, half shirt, and belly chain! She was sweet, but sassy.  She was my biggest influence.  Whitney gave me the strong voice I yearned for.  After singing a few of her tracks, I learned how to be sweet with female dominance.  Destiny’s Child brought out the classy side of me.  Dru Hill put me in a whole new world that was emotional and sincere yet dominate an frisky. Mary J. was my girl because she  was just Mary. She was cool, solo, classy, and thugged out. She flipped the switch and you never knew what was coming next. Usher gave me a real walk on the wild side an influenced me to stay exciting and hypnotic with it by using the body to speak a very erotic language.   K C and Jo Jo were so sweet. I felt all the love in the world came in threw my speakers when I heard them being played.  They influenced me to keep my heart in it and never forget about the love birds, the puppy love, or the love songs.   Xscape gave me a spin and a feel of feminine thug passion.  They were the lady version of the perfect blend of thug and passion. Mariah is my favorite because of her grace. Her vocals reminded me to always keep heaven and God first on the inside and it shines on the outside. I was influenced by many other artist like Mya, Monica, Brandy, Immature, Shai, TLC, Ginuwine, and Debra Cox. I just took a little from each artist. I took things that were very similar to what I took from the previously mentioned artist.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

MYS’STOREY:  I would describe my music as wild, frisky, fresh, new, sensual, stunning, exotic, hypnotic, and free.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artist?

MYS’STOREY:  I think what makes me stand out is that I’m not scared of being different.  I invite new, wild, and crazy to the table every time I begin any work.  I like to find a new ultra ego and make a whole character with personality out of it, like I did with  Aquafinia. I represent Wet Swag, meaning sensual female personality. I think the world is going through a real in your face stage and that is what I’m bringing to the table.  My music personality is most definitely in your face. I have an on and popping, crazy, and sexy style. I have a catch me if you can, here I am swag. I believe that catches an eye or two.

IAA:  What are some up coming projects you are currently working on?

MYS’STOREY:  I am working on a video for a song I featured on with another artist. This is a club banger in my opinion.  This track really gives props to the ladies with that junk in the trunk who know how to throw that thang.  I’m also working on a new mixed CD.  It will include remakes from artists like Mario, Machine Gun Kelly, and Akon. I want to show off my wide scale of skill.  I have a new single I’m working on for my new alter ego.  I’m going to stick to the sensual, crazy, witty, exotic side but with a bit more heat.  So please be advised stay out the kitchen but don’t miss dinner.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in ten years?

MYS’STOREY:  My career goals are to top billboard charts as one of the worlds established artist, win BET awards, do worldwide tours, and work with other big names as well as other great new and up coming artist. I’d like to work the business side of the market and invest into the music/party world and help keep the good sounds in the air.  In ten years I see myself as a well established and knowledgeable owner of a billion dollar company that has its roots in the music world.

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?
