Today we’d like to introduce you to Graciela Cain.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Graciela. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started doing music and things when I was 18! I would sing on hooks of very very bad rap songs, lol, I collaborated with better artists and it inspired me to want to hustle and do things on my own. I released my first song in 2016. I travel around Florida and other states with an ep I released the following year. I, then, got interested in DJing and now that my new love. I’m still singing and rapping! I’m hoping to put out a NEW EP this winter.
Has it been a smooth road?
In 2017, I was in a terrible car accident. I was hit by a semi truck and my car flipped three times. Thankfully, nothing happened to me physically. Just some sore body feels. Mentally, it sent me into a whirlwind. I struggled with depression and thoughts if why am I here. For a long time, I ignored my mental health. This last year, I finally got into therapy and it was like the fog was lifted. I’m very thankful for therapy and all it has done for me.
Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I dj, sing, rap and do community work in my city. I believe I’m most known for djing and working with youth. I’m proud of being intentional with the work I create. Whether it be a dance party, song or event people know I keep it real and safe. We are gonna have fun but this event has a purpose. Even down to my branding, I don’t. choose “gender conforming people.” Even myself, I’m not ashamed of my body or my belly and you will see it. 🙂 I feel like what sets me apart is not only am I an artist but Im an organizer. I do a lot of community work. I’ve run a business before and I’m very calculated with what is attached to my name.
Any predictions for the industry over the next few years?
I hope to see myself continuing to sustain off of my art. I’m also hoping to travel A LOT more. I want to be overseas and I also want to continue to grow in my craft.
