MuzicNotez: First off, it’s an honor to be doing this interview with you Glitter, thanks for taking the time to sit down with us.
What motivated you to start creating music? What age did you begin?
Glitter Rose: Thank you for having me! I started writing songs at age 12. I always loved music and entertainment, and wanted to be in it in some form, but I had no idea I had a talent for songwriting until my first song popped into my head. From the moment I wrote it, I knew it was what I wanted to do for life.
MuzicNotez: Who were your musical influences, idols, or bands growing up that have helped mold you into the musician you are today? Or helped mold the music that you create?
Glitter Rose: I’ve been inspired by so many different artists and styles. Big influences are The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Beatles more in my early writing stages and Stones as I got older. There was a period in my teens that I was very inspired by Motley Crue and Guns n Roses, and decided to play hard rock music for about 5 years. I’ve always idolized Elvis Presley, and he could possibly be my biggest inspiration as an artist.
MuzicNotez: What’s the ultimate goal you want your music to achieve, or for you to achieve in your career as a musician? Any particular message you wish to send?
Glitter Rose: My goal has always been to inspire people the way that other musicians have inspired me. Giving people hope and happiness is why I make music. I’ve been fortunate enough to already achieve that goal in a small way, but I wish for it to expand across the globe, on a major level, and bring hope into the hearts of music lovers everywhere.
MuzicNotez: What’s the greatest concert you’ve ever been to or performed?
Glitter Rose: Wow, my favorite concert experience ever was one of my own shows when I was 16 years old. I was headlining the Headbanger’s Ball in Ft. Worth, TX at The Ridglea Theater. 3,500 high school kids ready to rock and we tore the house down. It was the biggest crowd I’d played to at that point and the rush was unbelievable.
MuzicNotez: You recently played your 3,000th show already! How was it?
Glitter Rose: It was an amazing night! Most of all, for me, I was excited to share it with some very special friends and fans that were able to attend. Some of those people have been through a lot with me throughout my career and know the hardships as much as the good times. Most of all, it just showed me how important it is for me to do what I do for my fans, and that 3,000 more is definitely in my plans. VIEW THE FULL INTERVIEW HERE >>
