Hi Alexa, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hi Vents! I’ve had an incredible summer and an awesome time promoting my new music video “Enraptured!”
Can you talk to us about your latest single “Enraptured”?
Enraptured is a song about having strong feelings for someone, someone you trust to then have them betray you. You feel heartbroken and you have to prove that they can’t treat you like that. I actually did not write “Enraptured”. My wonderful singing coach Estani Frizzell wrote the song and played it for me. I instantly fell in love with the beat and I had to have it!
How was the film experience? What made you want to head over to the desert for this one?
I had the image of a Hunger Games like feel for the video, a battle almost. We found a perfect spot in an old car junk yard and made magic happen. It gave the video the perfect apocalyptic vibe we were going for! I could not have asked for a better production crew to help make my dream a reality. Sprinity Production met every need I had and went above and beyond to make it amazing!
What was the recording process like?
Recording “Enraptured” was very fun. The energy was very positive and it was an amazing experience. We recorded for 5 hours in 2 days. My favorite part was probably layering my voice over the track.
Does your acting influence your music and vice versa?
Acting is definitely helpful while making the music video. It helps to show emotions while singing and bring those feelings to the listeners.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new album?
I can announce that we have more songs coming your way soon! I have my next single called “Meant to Be” being released VERY soon!
What’s next in Alexa Friedman’s world? Any plans to hit the road?
Hopefully in the future as my brand expands, we can go on a tour! The next big step for me is to keep working hard to get my message out there. Don’t let people kill your dream. Other people will have dreams, but don’t let those people tell you that you can’t achieve your dreams.
Thank you so much Vent for featuring me in your magazine!
