Interview: MXKA – By Your Side

Hey MXKA, super nice to have the chance to chat with you. What first got you into music?
Music is something I’ve just been doing since I was a little girl and it just came naturally to me. I only
started recording seriously two years ago, and so far everything has been falling into place! It has not
been the easiest journey but I definitely know that I am on the right path.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?
I think it would be amazing to collab with artists such as Pharrell, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny, The Gorillaz,
Gwen Stefani, Masego, and Tainy. Just to name a few!

Your latest cover song is ‘By Your Side’. Can you tell us more about the making of it and if there were any
unusual things happening during the process?
‘By your Side’ is one of my favorites from Sade. I always enjoyed singing it so it made sense to cover this
one for our tribute EP to her.

What are you focusing on right now?
Right now I am focusing on releasing all the music we’ve been working on in the last 2 years. I also am
preparing myself to do live shows! It all still feels very unreal but it us all coming together.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?
The best advice I’ve been given is to let things be what they are suppose to be. We can’t force anything
to happen, so it’s best if we just accept things for how they are and enjoy the ride wherever it takes you!

What is the biggest challenge of being an artist?
The biggest challenge for me as an artist, is learning how to be patient when things are not going the
way I would like them to. I am someone who likes to have control over my life, but when it comes
releasing music you must be patient! I am still slowing learning how to accept the fact that the results
may not be where I want to be at this moment, but I am more than confident that it will be.

How do you structure your day?
I like to wake up and get my body moving ! I start the day off with a nice jog around my neighborhood,
followed by a walk to the park with my puppy Peanut. I feel its important to get as much fresh air as you
can especially if you are inside recording for hours on end. After I get some excersize in,

Do you have any hobbies or interests outside of music?
Yes! I love going for hikes and traveling to places that I never been to before. I also
Do you sing in the shower? What songs?
Yes I sing in the shower everyday ! Lately I’ve been singing a lot of songs by Harry Styles such as “As it
was” and “Adore You”.

What are your plans for the future?
I’m working on releasing my first EP , and followed by my first album!
