Interview: "Stupid Face" - J0VANNA

Viewing Stupid Face as well as your previous works, it is clear to see that you are a talented artist mastering multiple genres and vibes. What genre has been your favorite to create, and what would you like to tackle next?

J0VANNA: Thank you so much for having me again! I just wanted to share that R&B is hands down my favorite genre to create. The smooth grooves, soulful melodies, and powerful vocals just hit differently, you know? But I'm not content to just stick with what I know. I'm ready to level up and dive headfirst into the world of Soul music. I'm excited to explore the diverse sounds and styles of this genre and see how I can incorporate them into my own creative process. Who knows what kind of magic will happen when R&B and Soul collide!

As a modern singer-songwriter, what drew you to start making music, and what motivates you to continue?

J0VANNA: I've been writing music for as long as I can remember, but I made the decision to turn it into a profession when I was 15. It hit me that I wanted to use my music to help others feel understood and less alone. I aim to write songs that people can relate to and that make them feel seen. Deep down, I knew that my true calling was to inspire others through my music. That's what keeps me going - the motivation to touch people's souls with my lyrics and make a difference in their lives.

I love the style of your cover art! What inspired you to create such a unique style?

J0VANNA: So, Pinterest was my muse for this cover art! One day, I stumbled upon this image that was soooo cool - it had this vintage but whimsical vibe that I was really feeling. I knew right away that it was perfect for my cover art. I decided to take matters into my own hands and create something inspired by that image. I did my best to replicate it, but of course, I had to add my own twist to make it truly mine.

Congratulations on being the #1 artist for 8 adoring fans in 2022 on Spotify! What impact do you hope to make on fans with your music now and forever?

JOVANNA: My hope is that my music can reach those who need to hear that they're not alone. I want to keep being a voice for people who feel like they don't have one. It's important to me that my music can make an impact now and forever. I'm all about spreading love, positivity, and inspiration through my lyrics.

You’ve had Stupid Face mastered by Grammy-nominated Dave Kutch, what was the experience working with him like?

J0VANNA: I swear, the guy has a real gift when it comes to mastering. It's seriously impressive to watch him work. I love seeing his process, and honestly, I'm crossing my fingers that we get to keep working together. There's just something about his energy and the way he approaches things that really resonates with me. I feel like we make a great team and can accomplish some really amazing things together.

You have three hit singles released so far! What new ventures do you have planned for your music career in the near future?

JOVANNA: Honestly, I'm just focused on keeping the momentum going and putting out more music. My ultimate goal is to release an EP that really captures my sound and style. Of course, I want to keep gaining new fans and growing my audience, but I'm also really excited about the idea of going on a mini-tour. I just feel like there's nothing quite like the energy of a live show, you know? I want to connect with my fans in person and bring the music to life in a whole new way.
