Today we’d like to introduce you to Bianca Jazmine.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
My world was always immersed in art, from visual arts like photography to performing arts like theatre and dance. Growing up, I learned multiple instruments such as the piano, guitar, flute, and ukulele. I found my voice in music thanks to a school I attended called Key to Music. By honing in on my vocal technique, I built the confidence to use singing as a platform to share my ideas about the world; and the owner of the school gave me my final push by telling me I should pursue singing professionally. This ultimately instilled the courage to share the songs I had written in front of an audience, and begin going into local studios to record my music. I found songwriting to be my most natural platform to express themes of empathy, respect, and equality – values I held dearly throughout my entire life. Through singing and songwriting, I felt aligned with my purpose to be a messenger of hope, peace, and progress.
Please tell us about your art.
As a singer-songwriter, I write the lyrics, melodies, and chord progressions of my songs. For me, being lyrically involved is the most important aspect of my work. My songs discuss topics such as world peace and justice, gaining the courage to be yourself and speak your truth, and the realization that we’re all the same deep down inside- craving connection with others. I hope people can gain a sense of hope, and a seed of inspiration to create positive change in society and in their own lives.
We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
Avoiding a self-sabotaging mindset is vital. Believing in your talents and passion, and being aligned with your purpose is first and foremost. You have to keep an open mind and open heart about your own art before you can authentically interact with others. Being active in my local art community has helped me connect with other artists and musicians. In fact, the reason I am in this article is through another artist, Daniela Mitrovic, I met at a show called Art Mama Moves where we were both featured! I always make a point to communicate all my ideas about other creatives’ work and ask questions about their processes. Expressing admiration for other people’s art fosters a feeling of collaboration and community instead of competition, as well as expands your web of connections. I am a huge advocate for supporting and uplifting other artists rather than succumbing to toxic comparisons,
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
I post about upcoming shows on my social media, and it’s also where you can find updates about my music. I will be officially releasing my original music on October 14, starting with a single called You’ll Find Love. So far, I’ve only performed my originals live, but I’m so excited to release the recorded versions!
