Meet Dérly Barajas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dérly Barajas.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Dérly. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started creating short films and animations. One day my programs didn’t work and I was curious about logic pro x. I got more comfortable working on logic pro x and later created my first ever single called “Life of the party” in 2017. I now am a full-time artist trying to make a lane for myself. I’m always learning and evolving my craft.

Great, 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?
It’s been a tough road because many people try to put me in a box as an artist. I have no specific genre. I create what I feel in my soul. My music comes with a Spanglish twist. I rap and sing in English and Spanish. Little by little, I’ve been building my own home studio. I produce/direct my own films or music videos, and I also create my own beats. I engineer and mix my own tracks. It’s been challenging but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy creating with other artists, but I’ve been alone for my entire music career. So naturally, I learned to try and do everything on my own.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I am a musical artist. I own my own media company ran with my brother. I produce and direct my own films. I create my own graphic designs and cover arts. I produce/mix/engineer/master my own tracks. I am known for making music. I am proud to inspire other people with my music. I’m glad my music is growing and reaching new people. Little by little, I’m making a name for myself. As an artist, I have my own sound. I’m influenced by hip-hip and RnB but not limited to any. My genre is not specified, I create different kinds of music. My lyrics have a Spanglish flow that caters to my bilingual fans.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite childhood memory was making fan film remakes of music videos. I would dress up like my favorite artist at the time and reenact their music video or song. I would perform in the living room with my brother and cousin. We would have our parents record us or set up the camera.
