Dark-pop queen Lisey Tigra stopped by MoggBlog HQ to chat about why Lady Gaga, Lana Del Rey and Guns n Roses are her main influences, and why music has always had a big place in her heart.
To anyone new to your music, name 3 words that best describe your sound.
Dark, sexy, glamorous
What made you decide that music is the right path for you?
It’s always been my biggest passion. I started playing piano when I was 4 and then moved on to guitar later on. I started singing, dancing and writing in my teenage years as well. Being an artist was the way I know I could encapsulate all the things I love doing into one career.
What’s your writing process like? Do you write the music or lyrics first?
Usually music comes first for me. I write a chord progression that I like and being to improvise melodies over it. The lyrics start coming naturally once I have the melody.
Do you prefer performing live or recording, and why?
I don’t think I can choose! They are both special in their own way. On one hand I love creating in the studio but being able to perform my music live to an audience is an indescribable feeling.
Who are your main musical influences and why?
Lady Gaga, Lana del Rey and Guns n Roses. Gaga is an amazing performer and musician. Lana creates an entire universe around her music. Guns n Roses have written some of the best songs ever and Slash is one of my biggest inspirations on guitar.
