As my readers will know, I’m all about the hustle and when I see artists taking that extra mile to create a career for themselves, it is artists that I would like to interview. I recently have been watching Schara hustling so reached out to her for an interview. It was a pleasure hearing her answers

1. Tell us about this exciting new project you just did and when/where can people find it?

 I am currently finishing my Debut EP with 3 time Grammy award winner Chin Injeti. I also have been in Atlanta doing some recording at Capitol Studios. I am currently working closely with Capitol A and R . We are coming up with a plan to successfully launch my Debut Single ” Its like Torture” written by myself and Chin Injeti. 


2. How long have you been singing professionally? 

I have been working towards becoming a Canadian pop Star my entire life. 


3. What has been your favourite performance?

 My Favourite performance was when I sang at the Rickshaw. In Vancouver in 2015 to a packed house. I performed my last EP there. It was my fav performance because I was confident and the crowd really loved my music. When I was on stage I knew I had what it takes to fill a venue. I’ve never felt happier than that night!  

4. What was your worst performance and what did you learn from it?

 My Worst performance is when I was selected to perform at the PNE star search when I was just 9 years old. I grew up in Harrison Hot Springs, a very small town outside of Vancouver. At that point and time I was only use to performing in-front of a couple hundred people in my home town. When I got on the stage at the PNE, there were thousands upon thousands of people, coming from a small town I had never experienced that. I completely froze and ruined my performance and lost the competition. It was a lot for a small town 9 year old girl.  I learned that if I wanted to be a pop star I needed to learn how to perform in front of huge crowds. By the age of 15 I over came all stage fright and I knew I could perform in-front of any number of people. 
 
5. Lastly many of our readers are just starting out in the music industry, what was the best advice you ever got when you were starting out?

To be honest, I never got any good advice when starting out. The music industry is pretty cut throat and there has been alot of harmful words said to me by people in the industry. Because of this,  I learned to discover my own advice to protect me and advance me forward. So if I was talking to someone just starting out who has had no experiences in the music industry, my advice would be to never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. No one knows the future, no one knows your journey, If you want to be a success in the music industry do not let anyone stop you. Always listen to your own inner truth. Don’t let other people’s opinions sway you or your hearts desires because at the end of the day this is your life and your passion! If you know you have talent, let all the nay slayers roll off your back! Never give up! 

Sad but often common to hear — glad you were able to overcome the words of jealous stupid people.  Here at Pardalis Studio – we wish you the best of luck and can’t wait to hear what you have been working on!!
