Today we’d like to introduce you to Siera Mollakuqe.
Siera, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Growing up, I had always been into music. I learned both piano and guitar at a young age and eventually taught myself how to write and produce out of my bedroom. At the age of 14, I was connected with a Grammy-Winning music producer who offered to mentor me in Los Angeles. Living in New Jersey at the time, my parents and I both knew what a great opportunity it was, and didn’t hesitate to relocate. Ever since relocating to the west coast, my life has changed tremendously. I’ve been able to study my craft on the daily, meet all sorts of new people, and continue to move throughout the industry both as a writer and artist.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
With every path, there are always obstacles — but I’ve been lucky enough to overcome all the challenges that came my way so far. One of my biggest obstacles was relocating. Moving at such a young age, I had bounced around from multiple different schools, had to learn a brand new city, and overall grow up faster than the average person my age. I had to create a new routine that revolved around my new lifestyle. Although I didn’t mind it.
Another obstacle I had to face was self-discovery. From the age of 14, up until now, I have been a trained songwriter. As a writer, I have to know how to mimic all types of genres. In my early stages of writing, this became a bit difficult for me because I had been so focused on targeting and replicating different sounds, that I wasn’t able to decipher my own. Being young at the time made it even more difficult because I was still trying to learn myself and what worked for me.
Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I’m Siera. I am an independent artist and songwriter based in Los Angeles. I have credited work under Capitol Records and a catalog under Apple’s “Top 100 Dance Chart”. I specialize in pop, dance and R&B music.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
To me, success means achieving the short or long term goals that you set for yourself. Setting goals is one of the most important things when working in perfecting my craft because I’m able to record the achievements I had set for myself prior.
