Trina Elle is a Canadian singer, songwriter who just released her first cd entitled My Reality.
How do you describe your music to people, Trina?
I'd say it's very pop radio. Although I was aiming for more of an RnB style, in the end it turned out to be more pop. It has a very soulful feel to it as well; I wrote all the songs as well the content is very 'real'.
Tell me about how you originally got into your craft.
Well when I was little I was always in love with music... My parents were always supportive. My father had a friend of his who had a studio, so we went there and he basically told him, ok make some music with her...lol and from there i recorded a 3 song demo. After that, we decided to do a full album which took us about a year and a bit to complete. So now my 14 track album called My Reality is the finished product. Its all very exciting!!!
What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
There are a few things I like to do, but one thing I must say I LOVE to do when I get the chance, go fishing!!!!
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your business?
I'd say to stay focused and keep everything organized, its a challenge everyday, as the days go by i have more and more projects, gotta be able to not get overwhelmed and give up, so ya just to keep focus and keep everything running smoothly, seeing that I'm doing this all myself.
When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
Hm good question, I had to pause and think about that one haha, as long as I can remember, I'd say a singer.
In what way has your community impacted your development as a musician?
A lot of my music that I wrote, it has to do a lot with my reality of my life, but I also wrote about other things going on around me, issues that I felt needed to be addressed, things that I felt passionate about, I also wrote about.
