Today we’d like to introduce you to Remy Reilly.
Hi Remy, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I started playing music when I was 11 years old. I had just started voice lessons and learning how to play the drums. I performed at open mics all around my city and started getting actual gigs around 13. I knew then that was most definitely going to pursue music. I later picked up piano and guitar and got some band members! I was learning how to be a working musician I the scene and I am so grateful I was able to grow up fully in it so when I became an adult I had a good understanding of how it was going to be. I now am 19 and play shows 4-5 times a week and record music as much as possible. I also am collaborating with other local artists and traveling all around Texas! My goals for 2023 are to branch out of Dallas more and start going to LA and Nashville more.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I don’t think it is a smooth road for anyone. You truly do it because you love it and have a passion for it. Music is hard, it is hard to get people to pay attention and keep that attention. It is hard being a young girl even in this industry, we often get looked down upon or we are told we have no idea what we are doing. Some struggles I have encountered along the way have been self-doubt which is very common. I know everyone struggles with this one, but it can negatively impact you in large ways and hold you back. Once you are able to understand that good waves and bad waves will always be around, you just have to keep going and doing your best if it is really what you want. Success is different for everyone, we must be happy with the little wins too!
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am an indie/pop artist with a touch of soul. I have been known for being very enthusiastic and expressive with my music and performances. I am most proud of where I am and where I came from as a kid. I did not realize it while I was growing up but I was working toward the musician I was going to be today! I think that is the coolest.
If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
Growing up I was a strange kid (nothing has changed). I was interested in every career there was, loved books, being outside and being the class clown. I always loved entertaining my peers and making them laugh. I was always singing, but I never sang for anyone but myself. I have carried the same traits as I have grown! The only difference is I sing for everyone now.
