We recently had a warm and cosy session with talented Italian singer-songwriter Giulia. She played us two acoustic versions of songs that appear on her current album ‘Raze Me To The Ground’.
First, though, we managed to grab a quick Q&A.
Disorder: What are you working on right now?
Giuila: Hello. I'm working on my second album right now!
D: What people, places or things inspire you?
G: Basically everything in my life, maybe a relationship or a friendship. Sometimes it's also my imagination, how I would like things to be or even imagine different situations or people.
D: What artists turn you on?
G: A lot of different artists actually. My taste in music goes from country music to rock to pop, so a lot of those artists as well.
D: What is your ultimate ambition? / Who do you want to be when you grow up?
G: Well, my ultimate ambition would be to keep doing this, and do what I love and hopefully be successful at it. And maybe when I’m old and cannot do this job anymore, I would be an interior designer – who knows! lol
D: What got you started (the secret of your success)?
G: Music was always a big thing in my life. I think it was probably already written in the stars somehow.
D: What has been the biggest surprise/lesson along the way?
G: That is so hard! lol Maybe I was a little bit naive at the beginning. You think that it’s going to be easy and that everything that you’ve wished for is going to become true... Well it's not at all like that! You have to work for it and also very hard.
D: Who was your first crush?
G: My first crush was a guy from my home city, Rome; I was 13 years old. I still actually think of him. It’s true when they say you never forget your first love.
D: What/where do you like to eat or drink?
G: It depends on what mood I'm in. If I'm in town for a gig, an event or a party I might go to some trendy sushi bar, or, if I'm the mood for something more relaxed, I'd rather stay at home or go to eat a veggie burger at a pub!
D: Where do you feel most yourself?
G: In the studio and when I'm actually by myself – except for some occasions when I'm surrounded by the people that I love and that really understand me.
D: When are you at your worst?
G: I'm really moody sometimes. It depends really on just how I woke up that morning, but usually if I don't sleep a lot I tend to became irritable and moody lol.
D: What petty irritation do you hate the most?
G: I hate people that take advantage of others, maybe less fortunate or less strong than themselves. I also can't stand people being mean to others or especially to animals – that drives me crazy! I can't believe that humans are capabale of such disgusting things.
D: What do you appreciate most in your friends?
G: They are real down-to-earth and good people! They are true friends that will say everything to me if it's for my own good!
D: What innovation/invention do you love most?
G: Mobile phones lol
D: What would you do if you were not doing this [art -> interview]?
G: I really don't know! I really think this is what I am and not just what I do.. maybe I would try acting; It's another really big passion of mine.
