It’s #EGOUNLOCKED time! This week we’ve been chatting to Phoenix Laurén, a serious multitasking (she sings, writes, performs & styles!) babe from Vancouver. Here’s what we learnt...
Name: Phoenix Laurén
Location: Vancouver, BC
Occupation: Singer/Songwriter/Performer/Style Influencer
Tell us about yourself in tweet form (you’ve got 140 characters!)
Style obsessed, music creator, wild heart, adventurer, thrill seeker, hard worker, foodie, doggo mama, loyal, lover, risk taker, shop-a-holic!
How did you end up where you are in life right now?
Well I definitely have tried to trust my own “inner voice”. I also try not to live from a fear based prospective, and in a lot of cases, if I feel scared of something, that’s probably what I have to try/conquer next. Taking risks, and letting your passions lead you, being ok with failing, and ultimately not stopping until you find your own success. (I’m still on my journey ;) )
What’s been your proudest moment to date?
Meeting my idol, Ms. Lauryn Hill.
Who or what would you cite as your biggest inspiration?
I don’t know that I have a single one…obviously Lauryn Hill has been a MASSIVE inspiration to me. Her lyrics, and music truly speak to my soul. But in general, you don’t have to look very far to find a ton of inspiration! Literally 5 minutes browsing the ‘gram and I’m fired up to create something new. I find people that are not afraid to be themselves truly inspirational.
What’s on your playlist right now?
KEHLANI! Tamia, Brandy, Chance the Rapper, Mariah, Whitney… so much more. But I do like the RnB “golden age” - it just doesn’t get much better!
Describe your style in three words…
Vintage-inspired, statement-making, experimental (I totally cheated the 3 words. RULE BREAKER!)
What’s one thing you cannot live without?
Honestly? My Dog Hō’oli. (I hope my boyfriend doesn’t read this ;) )
Tell us a random fact about yourself…
I’m obsessed with sour cream… It’s gross I know! I’m trying to quit haha
If you were a mood ring, what colour would you be?
I was going to say black until I found out that it means stressed haha. Which is definitely sometimes true. There are a lot of different meanings out there, but I’d have to say Orange, or Amber. “Mixed emotions, Cool, Daring Wants, Stimulating Ideas, Emotional Expression, Creativity, Pleasure, Productivity”
What are you most looking forward to in 2017?
Releasing my EP! I just recently finished it, it’s currently being mixed/mastered. It’s my first solo EP so I’m really excited to release a part of myself that is very true to me, and close to my heart. Release date TBD. (soon and very soon!)
