Today we’d like to introduce you to Mumble Bee.
Mumble, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have always been surrounded by music as child. My dad was an engineer and producer, and my mother was a singer and a songwriter. I use to sit and watch them create all the time. My sister and I, at the time, sung around the house but I always the more shy one when it came to singing and performing. So, I took up dancing instead. Every now and then, our grandma would make sing in front of the church. Overtime, I grew to be more comfortable.
As I got older, my dad put me into piano classes which was the basis of me understanding how to play most the instruments I play today and allowed me to begin composing and writing my own songs. So, within the earliest states of my child hood, I was already being prepped to be a well rounded performing artist. At about 15, I really started to develop my producing and engineering with my dad and my cousin. Since then, I have been working on my sound and discovering who I wanted to be when it comes to music. The best part is there countless combinations to create a feeling. To create a message for everyone.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Honestly, life is never a smooth road. It has definitely taken a while to even get where I’m at today. A lot of “no”s and getting back to the drawing board. A lot of practice. A lot of confidence and faith in myself because there was a time I was depressed and suicidal to where I didn’t want to fulfill my dream no more. I had to hit rock bottom to be as confident as I am today. I had to understand that, just because you’re in pain it doesn’t mean you’ll die. Pain is temporary.
We’d love to hear more about your work.
I am independent artist. What sets me a part that I hear, ever so often, is that I’m extremely diverse and well-rounded in my talents. Being a female artist, there isn’t a lot of girl who produce, write, and then engineer their own music. It’s not a lot of female artists who come up with their own clothes and choreography for performances and music videos. It’s not a lot of female artists, who do sing and rap. To be quite frank, there’s not even a lot of male artists that do what I do. It makes me proud to say that I figured out how to do it, and some of it on my own.
What were you like growing up?
I was the popular quiet kid. That is literally the best way I can explain it! I kept to myself and I stayed focused. If I talked to you if I was spoken to so I wasn’t rude. I was popular because I was talented and would perform at talent shows or do sports. And some people that I have talked to, a little later thought I would be stuck up and brat because I was involved or I was popular. I never asked to be and I never acted like it. Every time a person that said that and ended up having a true conversation with me, they always said “you’re so nice, I thought you’d be stuck up.” It happened so often that I would just be like “see, it wasn’t so bad to just see for yourself.”
