In her final installment of Artist of the Week, Gianna Adams reflects on her past year and what’s to come for her career.
When I got the opportunity to do this interview it really provoked me to think about what’s been going on in the last year for me. It’s crazy how you don’t really notice or see how many things or how impactful things are until you sit back and think about it all. This last year for me has definitely been a game changer. I sold my first song as a songwriter, started attending Berklee College of music online after I graduated early from high school, started working on and finished my first EP, wrote more songs than I ever have before, had/have a song put on hold for a major life-changing artist. I moved out of my house and in with my best friend in LA to train and live my dreams, which caused me to experience what it’s like to be on my own without my family, which can be really tough.
I experienced my first love, had my first heartbreak, went through various ups and downs in finding myself as not only an artist but as a person. I learned that nothing is permanent in this life so you have to embrace what you have when you do, dealt with major negativity which has now sent me on a path towards living and breathing the positive.
I was in a severe accident that made me rethink a lot of things, realizing I’m capable of anything and I am able to manifest anything I could dream of for myself, discovering how deep my love is for music in general and the knowledge that it’s my safe place through everything, and just how important it is to surround yourself with positive light forces and to be passionate and happy and full of self-love.
I guess the point is this past year has been nonstop change for me. And none of us, despite what we may think, are used to change… trust me same here. But this year has been a whirlwind of change and I’ve embraced going with it and taking in all of the positives of why things happen and hope to use my experiences in my art and my music and share them with my audience and fans. I want them to know that we all go through craziness and change and I just hope for my music to be that safe place for them through it all like it always has been for me. I have no doubt that these changes are going to surface in my music… I don’t know how yet but I’m excited to see how they inspire new things in my life and be there to inspire others.
