Blank Canvas - Introducing YVÉ GOLD
25 March 15
Tell us about who you are and what you do: I'm Yve Gold. I like to express through various art forms but my main creative outlet is Music. I'm a Singer / Rapper / Songwriter from Melbourne, Australia.
What inspires you to create?: Love, Connection, Paradigm Shifts.
What are the biggest challenges you have faced and how did you overcome them?: Making a name for yourself as an artist definitely presents you with some challenges. As with anything in life, being prepared and pro-active makes any challenge seem like a small speed hump. If you know the art as well as the business side not many things can stifle your progress. The important thing for me has been to treat every situation as a lesson and to move forward with wisdom and clarity.
What's the last five songs played on your playlist?: Last 5 albums: Aaliyah - AALIYAH, Jhene Aiko - Sail Out, Nas - It Was, Written Drake - IYRTITL, Lauryn Hill - Miseducation.
If you could collaborate with any other artist, who would it be and why?: I'm all about vibe. If your vibe is right, I'm in. Let's create.
What's the craziest situation you have found yourself in?: Look, I'm a wonderer, a free spirit. I let my instinct guide me and let's just say it's led me to a few crazy people and places. A little mischief is essential ! I'm a huge advocate of trusting your gut, you'll never be led astray.
What's next on the agenda?: The next big thing on the agenda is a National Tour. Having 3 tracks on top of the JJJ Unearthed Charts has opened some major doors for me this year. My audience has grown and by the end of the year the plan is to have a large enough fan base to take shows to a few major cities in Aus. I'm coming for you fam!
What advice would you have given your younger self?: Love yourself + Do your absolute best. Everything's gonna be alright.
