Lea Marie Interview

By: Sindy

Lea Marie is a powerhouse singer-songwriter who can also act and dance. She's set to release her self-titled debut album in fall 2008. Meet Lea Marie!


Sindy: Tell me about how you started as a performer. What are your first memories of singing or dancing?

Lea Marie: My first memory of singing was when I was three years old living in Manhattan. I saw a long line of people on the sidewalk and asked my mom what they were all doing just standing there. She replied that the crowd was waiting for the express bus. I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to sing them a song or two while they were waiting. She was shocked and said "Umm, okay." And I sang them a couple of Disney songs.


Sindy: Who were some entertainers you looked up to when you were first getting into the business?

Lea Marie: When I first started getting into the business some of my idols were Hilary Duff, Mandy Moore, Britney Spears, and Madonna.


Sindy: You've been compared to a lot of young pop stars, how do you feel about that?

Lea Marie: Being compared to a lot of young pop stars is good and bad. Good because it is a wonderful thing to have comparisons between myself and other successful young teens who are doing well in the business. The downside is that I don't really feel that I should be compared to kids who don't write all of their own material, both the music and the lyrics.


Sindy: What do you think is your biggest strength as a performer? What do you have to work on?

Lea Marie: I think my biggest strength as a performer is my versatility. I can sing and play the piano, or sing and play the guitar, or sing and dance to tracks to some of my original songs.


Sindy: What is your favorite song to perform?

Lea Marie: When you are a songwriter, your favorite song is always the last song you wrote. So my favorite song is constantly on rotation.


Sindy: Who would you love to work with in the future?

Lea Marie: I would love to do a pop dance duet with Justin Timberlake.


Sindy: What do you like to do when you're not rehearsing or performing?

Lea Marie: My favorite activities during my free time are swimming, hanging in the Jacuzzi, playing with my dog, Schnookie, going to the movies with my friends, and hitting the shopping mall afterwards.


Sindy: How's your summer so far? What are you working on right now?

Lea Marie: My summer is going great because this is the time when I can work on my music at full speed. So far this summer, I have written and re-written many songs old and new. I also finished an intensive week of keyboarding classes at Musician's Institute. I am presently in Nashville, where I am attending a songwriting camp and visiting performing venues every night.

    “Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
