Hi Shayla, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’ve being doing great! Just been working hard on my music!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Screw U”?
I recorded my single Screw U with my Producer and my songwriting team! We had so much fun working on this song together!
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I had some personal experiences that could related to my single “Screw U” but what really inspired me to write this song was a situation that happened with a friend of mines past relationship. Being a songwriter you are like a sponge.. You take everything in!
How was the film experience?
The film experience was amazing! I teamed up with my director Nayip Ramos for the Screw U video and honestly, I learnt so much from him! Will 100% be shooting more music videos with him in the future.
How was the recording and writing process?
The recording/writing process overall went really smooth with this song. I have a great connection with my songwriting team and producers. We all get each other!
What role does Canada plays in your music?
Well, I am Canadian. Some of the experiences I have had growing up has certainly influenced some of my songwriting. Most recently my single “Screw U”. As well, I have meet some great people in Canada that have helped me get to the point I’m at with my music career and that are still helping me to date. The fact that other Canadian musicians have successfully made it in the Pop Industry gives me high hope that I will be there as well!
Do you take a different approach when you are covering an artist than when you are writing for your own?
I try and put the same approach that I have on my original music on all my covers. I want to be heard/known for the artist I am no matter what kind of project I am doing.
How’s your new EP coming along?
We are currently putting final touches on my EP! I can’t wait to share more! Stay tuned on all my social media pages.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
At the moment I do not have a release date in mind! But I know that I want to put it out sooner than later.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes! There is definitely plans to hit the road! Keep checking back on my social media for show dates and locations!
What else is happening next in Shayla Souliere’s world?
I’ve wrote and recorded my EP! Although.. a release date has not been decided and I am in discussions with a few artists regarding some collaborations! Stay tuned for more!
