Artist INTERVIEW: TORI BOLWOOD
1. Hey Tori Boltwood, super nice to have the chance to chat with you. What first got you into music?
My parents sent me and my twin brother to a Musical theater camp when we where close to 12-13 years old . I remember the moment I walked onto stage and started the whole process of learning music, dance , acting and just performing in general . I fell in love with how it felt to create. I fell in love with how performing on stage made me feel . Though I don’t truly think I grasped it entirely then I think that was what would spark the realization that singing was part of a wonderful world of art and performance an I wanted to be a part of that world with all my heart . Before then i don’t think I understood that being an artist/musician/performer/ creative could be a part of your identity. It was in many ways a life altering realization .
2. What’s your favorite 80’s album?
Funny enough I don’t think I have a favorite album but I do have a few song I think are epic
Jessies Girl - Rick Springfield
Pour some sugar on me - Def Leppard
Eye of the tiger - By survivor
Old time rock and roll - Bob Seger / the silver bullet band
Also just for fun the entire soundtrack/album for Footloose is quite a fun listen .
3. What are you most proud of?
Something I am proud of is the time and mental reflection I invested to come to term with the concept of originality.
In my opinion You can’t really plan being original or unique . Its just something you must give yourself permission to be . We already have all the materials we need to be unique since We are all born as originals .
we just have to choose to not allow the pressures of society to bury it.
Every day I wake up an strive to love and accept myself .
By trying my best every day to take care of my mental ,emotional , spiritual and physical health I feel I have built a foundation that just frees myself to be the unique person I was born as .
This act of care and respect allows my music to refelct who I am and in turn be “unique” .
This investment in myself it took to get to this realization as a artist is something I take pride in.
4. What’s your favorite 00’s album?
Most of my favorite music of the 00’s involved listening to Shakira, Lady Gaga , Rihanna , Maroon 5 , Pink and Evanescence .
5. Would you describe your perfect day?
My perfect day would include writing lots of music , going out and trying some really interesting dinning options and spending lots of time with my family and pets .
6. What’s your favorite movie?
I really love emotional movies like “A Walk To Remember” anything romantic is usually my cup of tea .
7. What is the biggest challenge of being an artist?
Learning to not compare myself to other artist and to not be so critical and harsh on my own music/ talent .
8. When did you fall in love with rock music?
I fell in love with rock music really young .
My parents played a lot of classic rock when I was growing up that greatly inspired me then and still does today.
9. What’s your fav ice cream flavor?
What’s your fav ice cream flavor? I really enjoy a good hazelnut gelato mixed with some vanilla .
