Attack in the 26th Zone ( Sue Sue ) talks about her new single ”In a Forest, by a Lake” in candid interview

Love Music : Tell us a little bit about yourself. Your background, education, music etc. ??

My name is Sue Sue. I started making music when I was 26 years old. I found machines, by which I could make it, i.e. computer and stuff.


Love Music : What made you realize that music was your path?

I think I had a some kind of blackout back then. When I was regaining my health, as fast as I lost it suddenly, I felt something had changed in me. I felt I could do anything and chose music. Since that I’ve concentrated on doing the thing I want to do.


Love Music : We been hearing a lot about you and your new single ”In a Forest, by a Lake”, so we notice your starting to gain a lot of attention how does it feel?

It’s such a great song and I can’t wait until everybody else hears it, too. My previous song “How Long was the Wind Blowing” gained some attention too in spring. It’s great when you can finally show the products of your work for others.


Love Music : Please tell us more about your upcoming single ”In a Forest, by a Lake” ?

It’s again something I haven’t done before – all of my singles vary a bit in style. This has some new elements in it again. Nature is very present in it’s theme. Musical style covers folk and something from black metal – yes there is some blast beat in it. I even thought about classical music when I did it, like is this classical music. But, no it’s electropop. And it’s my style. 


Love Music : What's motive behind sing this song?

Love. And handsomeness of a forest. Finland is known for it’s clean nature. We have a lot of lakes and forests here where to recreate yourself.


Love Music : What makes your music unique?

People say quite often that they haven’t heard anything like my music before. And that they hear I have made it very in detail. It’s true – sometimes I have spent six years making a song. My music is a combination of different styles. There are lots of different drum patterns. Usually there are also some dark and heavy melodies at some point – or a melancholic feel in lyrics. But there is also a light side – very often a contrast between them.


Love Music : Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to be a professional musician ?

Just do it, practice, and concentrate on it. Everything is possible basically.


Love Music : Who are your musical inspirations?

Tool is a great band for example.


Love Music : What are your future plans ? Your vision for the coming years. 

I’m waiting for the single release day 27th Oct when I can also show it’s music video for everybody. Next year I planned to make a single, too, and an EP. I’m going to do gigs, and maybe a tour at some point too.


Love Music : If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

It’s really hard to say, I think, just everywhere. Hopefully in some cool and relaxed place.


Love Music : Everybody needs time out. What do you do in your free time?

I’m a helluva thinker, I like to just sit and think.


Love Music : Are you active on social media? 

Yes, I’m on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Interview with Tan Onwimon

Love Music : Tell us a little bit about yourself & Why you decided to work as a film composer?

I have been a musician all my life. But I have a dream to become a filmmaker, so in 2008 I decided to go to film school and did music works on the side as a saxophonist and musical theater assistant in Bangkok. Doing so made my film classmates starting to have an impression that I could write music for their films (about which I had no idea by that time) Later on, they gave me an offer to do music scoring for their films and I went for it. This first step of film scoring opened my eyes to the new aspect of storytelling. And I fell in love with it right away because it combined both film and music, the arts I love most together! I got to learn and gain more experience and kept getting more films to score after I graduated. It was until 2014 that I decided to go a step further by applying for and getting accepted into the Berklee College of Music for Film Scoring program. This opportunity has changed my life forever and it leads me to Los Angeles where I start my professional career.


Love Music : We have been hearing a lot about your work, so we notice you are starting to gain a lot of attention how does it feel?

Becoming a film composer is the career path that takes much time, effort, and patience before reaching the recognition. For the past ten years of dedication, it has been an honor to have received increasing attention and to have heard of numerous compliments about my compositions. Each project has its own unique challenges. And you have to work closely and harmoniously with the director of every film. Each director has his unique visions, and you have to respect that. That means working in every film is a complete different lesson learned. Receiving a compliment from the director is probably the best thing I can get and I feel truly humble about. It means you have done your job perfectly.


Love Music : Any upcoming project?


I am currently working on a sci-fi/action series called “Yolkman.” Writing for this series is definitely a fun ride. I am more of an orchestral music composer. So working for a sci-fi/action is a new experimental experience on electronic upbeat music. It was extremely fun to render a fusion between analog and digital realms. My upcoming project is NHK’s documentary film called “Duck Academy.”


Love Music : What is your composition style & signature?


I like writing the main theme first. The main theme is the heart of everything that will capture the essence of the film. Coming up with the great themes instantly helps you finishing 40% of the work. The main theme can be for any character, story, location, and etc. It gives you the right mood and tone to hold on to it. Also, my compositions usually have a slight touch of jazz chords with some tensions like 7th, sus4 or 9th chords. I didn’t realize this until I already delivered my work and gave it a listen after a while. This may be because I am a saxophonist, so jazz sounds can be a part of my composition anytime.


Love Music : Do you compose for any other media apart from movies? What is the differences?


I also write for video games, television, commercial and musical theatres. Each media has its own style that I have to adapt. Last month I was lucky enough to work for a musical called “Sonn : a New Musical.” It was a different experience because, for theatres, you have to know the nature of each performer and his/her voice. You have to go through the screenplay and understand the story, unlike movies where you can simply learn about characters through provided video footages.. And the melody has to fit with words. Every single detail like vowels and accents matters. And for video games, they are  similar to film. The only difference is that a video game has interactive music. Each decision you make in the game affects the music, so the music has to have options and layers, instead of ordinary linear storytelling.


Love Music : What is your goal in life you want to achieve next?


Films are always my passion. I would love to write and produce a film one day. My best friend (who is a filmmaker) and I are working on building a studio one day. And it is also my dream to write a story and music for a new Disney’s movie! I don’t know how this possibility is going to be like, but that would be once-in-a-lifetime achievement I can dream of and chase after. I already have a story in my head, and I will never give up on that dream.


Love Music : What motivates you to do your best work as a film composer?


Listen more…listen as much music as you can. Sometimes I like getting a classical music score and study it. You will be surprised how it affects your music vocabulary. The more you listen, the more you know. I also like to listen to other kinds of music, such as Irish, Tango, Latin, Hindi, EDM, and Jazz music, you name it. It motivates me by pushing the limit of my musical knowledge. It also helps refreshing my ears from what I have been writing each day. However, the best motivation for me as a film composer is the approaching “deadline.”


Love Music : What kind of training have you had, if any ?


I had my training at Berklee College of Music. In the Film Scoring Program, they start off by teaching you fundamentals, such as Ear Training, Theories, History and Conducting. After that you start learning to write by getting to write a short cue. In some cues, you will get to record a live player. Each semester the scale of each project will get bigger, and it gets harder too. My first project was a 1-minute music cue with 4 live players. My final project was a 12-minute short film with full orchestra. It was the hell of a ride by the end of my senior year!


Love Music : What is your favorite thing of being a film composer?


Standing in front of the orchestra, listening to them playing my music live on the scoring stage is the best experience I could dream of. Right at the very first moment when they started playing, it was like my exhaustion from work was all gone. The recording session was more like a reward for a composer. The hardest part of film composing is when you write at home and that part is done. So the recording day is the day for me to relax and witness the product of my hard work.


Love Music : Who is your inspiration?


My number one has to be the legendary John Williams. I grew up with his Jurassic Park scores which literally give me chills until today. And I love everything about Harry Potter including the original scores. I can recognize every track of every album. It has been my secret mentor in orchestration. John Williams is definitely my role model. He is already 86 years old, and he is still writing for Star Wars Episode XI. He rocks!

KVYO (kay-oh) Singer songwriter from Salford, Manchester

In 1998 KVYO found her voice, she joined a performing arts school that year and took part in show after show, traveling around the country with her mum by her side. She did this for another 9 years, learning about the arts and everything there was to it. Finding her strengths, facing her fears and building a solid foundation of unconditional love for music. Her first studio experience was a prize she had won in a competition, having never been in one before, at the age of 11, she recorded her first song. Although this was the making of her as a performer, her very earliest memories of singing are with her family, no fancy costumes, lights or cameras, just a little house full of her favourite people singing at the tops of their voices just for fun. And these moments are the foundation of the artist she is today. 

KVYO continued to dedicate herself to her art throughout her teens, performing in plays, as part of girl group, and then finally, writing. She became dedicated to writing down her thoughts, feelings even letters to the universe and turning them into music. The first time these were recorded was after meeting Nick Hussey in 2016, and after years of writing down stories she was finally given the chance to share them.

With a pen and paper never too far away from her, KVYO is a firm believer in expressing your feelings, writing down you’re thoughts, communicating with the people you love and being honest with yourself. You can hear these messages throughout her music, not only speaking about love and lessons but the understanding of who you are and aspire to be. Her real and relatable stories come from all kinds of places and feelings with a constant sense of the kindness and positive energy she believes in. 




Growing up in the 90’s and 00’s listening to artists such as Mary J Blige, Brandy and Ashanti formed KVYO’s love for RnB. As well as the vocal stylings of musical legends like Janet Jackson and Sade.

Exclusive Interview with creator & owner of Innova X, Emily Correa

Emily Correa has creativity, hard work, and dedication to building and expanding her brand. The creator and owner of Innova X, a fast moving publicity house, events company & artist development, has built the brand into an experience artists want to be a part of.  

With 17 years experience in the arts, a Masters degree and a work background in corporate, Emily has put her accomplishments into becoming a very productive entrepreneur. 


She works with artists from all walks of life helping them create an experience that will propel their career and personal life to new levels. 


We had a great conversation with Emily Correa, in which, she talk her brand Innova X, what coaching is like, and what the future holds for her...Enjoy the interview here:



Tell us a little bit about yourself?

Emily Correa: My name is Emily “Xa’Vonni” Correa and I am a Serial Creative Entrepreneur, Certified Life/ Business Coach, Talent Scout, Event Producer and founder of my own brand, Innova X Arts. I have 17 years in the arts, and I mean all the arts, music, acting, modeling/fashion and the visual arts as both a creative myself and the business side.


How did you get started in the first place?

Emily Correa: I started as a classically trained theater actress at the age of 16. Theater and acting is just something that always has inspired me. Definitely why I have my mind on forming a theater company beginning of 2019, and why Ithe last year or so I’m Chicago I have been doing fashion/modeling shoots & mixxers under IXCreative Studios to put into my first magazine!

I just love connecting people and expressing myself as an artist through my own creative projects. But the kick off was definitely age 16..maybe even younger because as a child, all I wanted was crayons and colored pencils so I could draw and paint. My journey actually is on my site www.Innovaxarts.com if you want to find out.


What is Innova X and How did it come about?

Emily Correa: Innova X (Innovation Extreme) came about as an inspiration of doing events with my artists. Previously in NYC, I had an artist development and PR company through another name for 4 years and started hosting events with all kinds of artists and creatives, about 30 mixxers, and it really expanded my network. I loved it. I then ended up moving to Miami to keep expanding the brand, maybe settle in over the 4 years I was there. Totally the opposite happened, I reinvented my business into Innova X to focus on event production gaining more network.

I relaunched myself as a Life, Business and Law of Attraction Coach, then I branded a t-shirt company, IXSpiritwear that’s coming up end of 2018, now a  Cultural Arts Magazine is on the way... THICKK Magazine celebrating the mid-size woman making moves and all my creative projects with a focus o the Chicago art scene. 

I just follow my creative flow and bring great people into the mix on my projects.


What type of artists does Innova X work with?

Emily Correa: We work with those in Music, Acting, Fashion/Modeling and the Visual Arts. But creative energy is creative energy, if you are a dancer or CEO of an entertainment company, I would connect, network, promote and even be your coach. I can’t choose just one type of art as my favorite although I started with acting, and the visual arts as a child, but I just love music and fashion & modeling had my heart too. Its all interconnected anyway in this business.


What can a potential client expect from you?

Emily Correa: Clients can expect me to use the Law of Attraction to explain alot of issues that they go through and to make strong choices in moving forward. Also they can expect me to be both intuitive and assertive with my no-nonsense business knowledge.

Did a artist get a Masters degree in Business Psychology? Probably not. But I did and I will and can help them do better, be better and get more from their lives. I offer my clients a free 30 minute session to explore this type of strategy for their careers. Lastly, I am pretty intuitive and can gauge from their energy and voice what their potential is and where they can go.

At times I even get clarity on a full product, business idea etc. that they should go for to build their career to the next level and they leave the session surprised and inspired.


How do you remain up-to-date with the entertainment industry?

Emily Correa:  Social Media shows me where my network is at and what they are up to across 4 cities. Of course knowing the other main players in your community is important to form collaborations or just gauge who you should and should not work with. 


What do you like most about your career?

Emily Correa: I love that it’s a journey and I am not finished yet. 

I definitely feel like a huge new stage is coming end of 2018 and 2019 is meant to be my biggest year yet, and definitely its about me putting my own self out there as a VLOGGER under CreativityMuzeTV in 2019. 

This will help me share my coaching advice to countless people, interviews artists globally, and really build up my brand. I love being an educator, mentor, coach, and influencer to others and changes lives.



Tell us about your life experiences as an artist?

Emily Correa: Countless! From writing a book featuring 100 indie music artists sharing advice, to interviewing VP of SESAC, Justin Bieber’s and John Legend’s producers, to attending Art Basel twice in Miami as PRESS and scouting 100 best global artists for future interviews, to having the Rock check me out at his VIP Premiere of Ballers 2 and meeting Tyson Beckford at a Miami bar, to my days modeling and pursuing acting and graduating from a high school of the arts, then teaching it to 1,000 students, its all been an amazing journey so far. 


How did your previous work in corporate prepare you for the entertainment industry?

Emily Correa: You would think it doesn’t matter that I have 10 years in corporate, mostly as a Trainer or Designer, but actually working in corporate has been extremely helpful as an entrepreneur and learning how to really inspire employees, and build a company. How to really market, write, promote, sell, and influence on the corporate level. I think artists should take business classes to be able to understand their own selves as a creative business.


How long have you been a coach?, What type of coaching do you do?

Emily Correa: 5 years as a Life, Business and Law of Attraction Coach.


What is the best piece of advice in this business you actually followed?

Emily Correa: Team and Collaborations. You cannot move forward without having support, mentors and teammates. That can mean an agent, a coach, a publicist, assistants, managers and more. And working with other key players to produce together a big project.

Relationships are what makes the crazy entertainment industry work! with top key people to support and guide you along the way. But at all times, know yourself and you are the BOSS, guide yourself first #1.


How did the A.V.A Method “Awareness, Vision and Action” come about?

Emily Correa: Great question! Its basically understanding yourself as a person first. Then getting your vision for the future. And making moves! Then repeat. That’s my 1st coaching philosophy.


In your spare time, What do you like to do for fun?

Emily Correa: Travel! Living in my 4th city, you can tell I’m fearless about travel and will be going to more places in the future. I would like to visit London, Argentina and Dubai Internationally, and New Orleans and San Francisco locally. 


What does the future hold for Emily Correa and Innova X?

Emily Correa: I will be launching my THICKK magazine end of October, hosting Chicago Fashion Week Party, a new theater company, interviewing artists globally for my Youtube channel, and maybe do some acting again in the future. -EC

I'm from Houston originally so no with that i grew up listening to a lot of flip, Chamillionaire ,zero ,Scarface, screw u know I jam at all


Love Music :  Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to be a professional musician ?

Yeah, if you want it bad enough you know put your mind to it and do it. A lot of people talk about it and say “I want to be a rapper you know I want to do this and I want to do that” but they spend most the time you know talking about it when you wake up, put your goals into action but the action to it less mouth to it and you will achieve. 


Love Music :  Have you set some goals to achieve ? 

Yeah like I said my goal is to only free style. I can easily write, anybody can easily write stories and poetry…. Whatever, but mine personally….really the only goal I have until I sign with a major label is to only freestyle. And if I cant make that happen, I can tell you that’s the end of me ever writing music. And i can compose some great lyrics. Well last time when I was 16 yrs old I could anyway.


Love Music :  If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

I've been hearing that the new cowboy Stadium is mighty nice with the big Megatron you know I'd like to see my pretty face on there but in honesty, I grew up a basketball fan I played basketball and it was another thing a ran too in the streets, it was basketball & music that saved me and pulled me thru those times. So if I have to choose a venue…. then the Rose Garden honestly 


Love Music : Please share with us your proudest moments ?

Pretty much every time I step on stage to do a show. I never thought that I would even make it to this point… so yeah feel proud every time I step on stage


Love Music :  Are you active on social media?

Yeah I'm pretty much on every single outlet online right now. You can catch me on Facebook.com/officialdubbleu

CHECK OUT THE INTERVIEW :


Love Music : Let’s talk a bit about your music and what is the secret behind your success ?

Persistence. I've been making music for 20 years. A lot of people when they think Hip Hop producer or rapper, they think Bentley, champaign, mansions. Overnight success. Hit single. But, the truth is, everything takes a lot of work behind the scenes. I've known artists that quit music for good, just because someone criticized their album. This was before the internet. Look at it now…the negativity is all summed up on one social media post. So, just sticking with it is half the battle for any musician, and persistently improving your skills and formula. Even when my music was struggling for inspiration, I’d still be making it. So, when you get a hit or something that’s fire, it makes it all that much more gratifying. 


Love Music : Can you please tell our readers about your latest project, The Success Freestyle?

For the last year I've been working heavy on the business side. Our record label, publishing company, and brand GameRunnaZ Records has secured some contracts that have allowed us to put our Hip Hop music into TV networks and film more than ever. But, at the core, I’m a musician and an artist. The Success Freestyle is my “back again” project. It is the first song from my incoming word in progress the “It Is What It Isn't.”







Love Music : And background Of The Success Freestyle Song & Video?

I just kept seeing people posting freestyles online, and I honestly questioned that they were freestyles or off the top. It kind of bothered my a little. Like, what is a freestyle nowadays then?  Like, most people that know me know I CAN freestyle, but I don’t step in cyphers and battle and all that. In the studio, half my songs start with Freestyles we end up keeping. With “The Success” freestyle I had an idea of what topic, but I wanted to do it from the top. So, that was where the live recording in booth concept happened. Cut a video with two iPhones and just let it roll. I actually did one freestyle and I forgot to arm the track in Logic, so the freestyle that made the video is actually the second attempt, like it shows. I had to keep it real.


Love Music : Please tell us more about your music style ? 

I've switched up a few times over the years. My style has been very artistically inclined since I released the No Apologies album. Even more with Affirmations. I try to put a message in my music an always take the listener somewhere. That doesn't always jive with what’s on the radio or what’s trending, but it’s what I do. One of my goals in music production has always been to try to bring the most dynamic energy without crowding my beats. I've gotten away from that the last few projects, but I’m bringing that concept back for “It Is What It Isn't”


Love Music : Who are your musical inspirations?

Too many to name in a sit down. I was raised on my pop’s vinyl collection…everyone from Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Gil Scott Heron. All the way through B.I.G., Tribe Called Quest,Wu Tang, and 2Pac. New guys like J. Cole and Kendrick really inspire me to make new music.


Love Music : Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to be a professional musician ?

It’s easier now than ever in history to start experimenting with music production and recording. If you really want to do it, start now. Quit waiting. There’s really no excuse anymore to not do music if that’s what you want to do. Professionally, remember, it’s BUSINESS… it’s not always beats and rhymes. Be ready for when it gets complicated. Study the game. BE READY AND STAY READY!


Love Music : Have you set some goals to achieve ? 

Just had a dope experience composing for Season 2 of The Hollywood Puppet Show on Fuse. I’d like to compose music for a movie someday in between everything else I’m trying to do out here.


Love Music : If you could perform anywhere, in the world, where would it have to be?

Those huge festivals in Europe look wild. Dubai looks dope. My backyard would be dope at this point….it’s been a couple years since I've performed live. That’s about to change. Anyone that’s seen me knows my stage game is legit.


Love Music : Please share with us your proudest moments ?

Seeing my one year old son hit the pads on my beat pad.


Love Music : Are you active on social media?

I stay pretty active on my Instagram @jtpender and I’m on the others. The new IGTV platform is starting to catch some exclusive content. Youtube stays up with new stuff as well.
