AA Interview: Dina Renee

Image

Dina Renee is the Los Angeles starlet on the rise. New music and a new attitude about NOT settling for the same old same old anymore.


AA: When did you first decide to become a singer and performer?

DR: I had this strong inner voice-since I was 3 years old I knew it was what I wanted to do but I didn’t pursue it seriously until I moved to LA.

AA: What have been some of your greatest experiences in the studio?

DR: My favorite experiences in the studio are when a song comes together effortlessly. I could be having the worst day or suppressed a lot of emotions and once I’m singing and coming up with a new melody or lyrics all of that goes away-it’s like therapy. My coolest experience in a studio is probably visiting the ones Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, and Madonna recorded at. It’s crazy to be singing on the same mics they literally recorded on.

AA: Tell us about being a musician in Los Angeles and do you consider living in an entertainment town to be a pro or a con for an emerging artist?

DR: It’s a pro for me but maybe because I’m not the type to compare myself to all the others doing the same thing here. A lot of people where I was from did not take me seriously. I mean probably being the 19 year old taking the mic from every dj no wonder lol, but moving to Hollywood changed my life. I felt more in my element here and that it’s now or never. I was able to really get serious about my music. I know that if I’m here there is a real opportunity and it forces me to just go for it.

AA: What is the story behind "What I'm Not Gonna Do"?

DR: I think I’m just at a point dealing with dating where I’m so fed up with being treated badly/lied to and I swear it’s like I date the same type of guy over and over again-it’s almost a message to myself to stop wasting time on a guy (we will rename them all Peter) that is never going to give me what I deserve. #nomorepeters

AA: What performers do you think most closely resemble your on stage personality and performance style?

DR: I love Katy Perry’s colorful backdrops and quirky/ sparkly designs on stage. I love how Britney Spears performance style always tells a story -I’d love to have something similar but with even more color of course.

AA: Where can we catch your next show?

DR: State Social House in West Hollywood on September 27th 9 pm

AA: Anything else you would like to share with our readers?

DR: I just want to thank everyone for listening to my new song. My goal was for it to reach at least 100 k on Spotify and it surpassed that last week. It means more than I can even explain. I was once recording songs hiding in a closet (at 5 years old) scared for anyone to hear my real voice so it’s kind of huge for me to overcome all my self doubt I deal with daily. Pop music is my passion and the reason I breathe. When I’m pulled in every direction-I’ve had many jobs in LA since college but I always know my truth is creating music and I hope I can inspire even just one person through my passion. Please look out for my music video coming soon :)
