Hey Aiela, thank you so much for this interview. Can you start by introducing yourself to readers who might be unfamiliar with your music?
Aiela: Thank you so much for having me. My name is Aiela Angela, and I’m a singer-songwriter who tells stories with music. I enjoy writing songs with lyrics that narrate my life in the hopes that they will resonate with my listeners.
When did you first discover your passion for music?
Aiela: Growing up, I’ve always had a passion for music. I truly believe that music is in my blood. I have musical ancestry, and I believe that when I was around 2 years old, I first developed an interest in music.
Have you always known that you wanted to pursue a career within the music industry?
Aiela: The music industry has always intrigued me since I was a child. My grandfather made a living by playing music, and I’ve always been curious about how he did it. When I was about 15, I began writing songs and realized I wanted to make a living through music. I didn’t have the resources at the time, so I worked on my craft until I was ready. I began my musical career when I was about 20 years old.
How would you currently describe your musical style?
Aiela: My musical style is constantly evolving. I enjoy experimenting with new sounds and production styles. Despite the fact that things are constantly changing, I still prefer pop style. I suppose you could say that my music is pop with a lot of expressive lyrics.
You recently released the amazing new single “Broken Pieces”. How did the idea for this song come together?
Aiela: The song began with an instrumental track sent to me by my producer, Machua. I kept the track in my storage for a long time because I couldn’t think of a story that would fit the vibe. I recall having a video call with Machua to discuss some songs we’d been working on when he told me how the track came to be. His story really moved me, and I wrote Broken Pieces right away after the call.
How would you compare the creative process behind this song to earlier releases?
Aiela: This song is very different from the others I’ve released in terms of story. My previous releases were more focused on one topic, which was love. This song is about healing and the aftermath of a life crisis, and it can be interpreted in a variety of ways. In terms of production, we concentrated on small vocal details as well as instrumental changes. It was a lot of fun creating this song.
“Broken Pieces” was produced by Machua Touchez. How did you find working alongside Machua on this song?
Aiela: Working with Machua is always fun. He is not only my producer, but also a close friend of mine. When it comes to creating music, I appreciate how open he is to my crazy ideas. He lets me be myself, and vice versa. I think we just click as musicians.
What does this song personally mean to you?
Aiela: This song means so much to me. I experienced many different emotions simultaneously while writing this song. I believe the song captures the feeling of wanting to break free from the chains that bind them. It’s one of the things I don’t usually share with the world, but this song made it possible for me to do so. It’s a song that will always remind me of my journey and how I overcame life’s challenges.
What message would you like listeners to take from this song?
Aiela: I want them to remember Broken Pieces as a constant reminder that it’s okay not to be okay; that it’s okay to take their time healing. We often feel a lot of pressure when it comes to the amount of time it takes to get back on track. Life is not a race, and we should not act as though it is.
Finally, is there a message that you would like to share with the readers of Fierce & Fabulous Revolution?
Aiela: First and foremost, I want to thank you for your support for Fierce and Fabulous Revolution. I invite you to listen to my new single, Broken Pieces. No doubt, you won’t regret it. You can also keep up with me on all of my social media accounts, which are all @aielaangela.
