Interview with Lia

  1. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  2. A: A quality product, good communication and professionalism.

  3. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  4. A: My vocal sound is unique and it has been compared many times to some of the best female vocalists out there. Writing melody is one of my favourite parts of the songwriting process.

  5. Q: What's your typical work process?

  6. A: I first listen to the song and any references uninterrupted to get a feeling for the vibe and to get down some initial ideas that come to mind. After a short break, I continue working on the song to further develop and enhance it. I then send over a rough demo just to get feedback and to see if I'm going in the right direction. After the feedback, I make whatever changes need to be made.

  7. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  8. A: I'm working on my third studio album and I'm really excited about it.
