This past week, Headrush TV had the opportunity to catch up with the beautiful and upcoming artist, Dayme! Dayme released one of her latest singles, “Cuz it Hurts,” on December 14, 2018 and has become a very special work of art to her fans. “This song deals with the unfortunate increase of depression and suicide cases now being reported,” says Dayme.
So when did you decide to start preforming?
Dayme: “I’ve been one of those kids that just loved music and I would write my own poems. I took some breaks here and there and about 5 years ago is when I really started. I was going through a lot of changes and like I guess that period of life where you’re just trying to find yourself, your direction, what you want to do with yourself. I don’t know where I get into that mindset I just start writing and creating.”
How has your career been going so far?
Dayme: “It’s basically picking up again, that I’ve started doing my own music. It was weird because I put this work of art out on my own from my basement, I just started recording my music and doing my videos then I learned how to edit and even shoot my videos. I put them out there and slowly but surely people started to gravitate them and I started to get this following and they would send me drawings and they
would just basically reach out and ask me for more music and it started everything for me again. It encouraged me to just go.”
Do you have any certain music groups that you look up to?
Dayme: “I love Jack White, he’s like the ultimate for me and of course I love the White Stripes when they were together. I know some people are going to laugh at me for this but My Chemical Romance, it cant get more amazing, they’re great! Then when it comes to female singers, I like Gwen Stefani. I like some of her earlier stuff: No Doubt. I also love Stevie Nicks, Lana, and Grimes.”
What would you say is the most special about your music;
and what would be your favorite song you’ve made?
Dayme: I love "Blue Sunday" and "Fairy Tales" and "Evil" because they were the first two songs that I did. And funny enough I had a meeting in California, I was staying in New York and I remember I just wanted to stay there cause of its history cause of Jim Morrison and Marilyn Monroe. Its just a very iconic place to stay. I remember my meeting got cancelled and it starting raining an I this thought came to my head, Blue Sunday, Blue Sunday, Blue Sunday. I didn’t realize after I recorded it not after too long ago, Jim Morrison has a song called Blue Sunday. Its really the same kind of vibe.
How would you describe your music to others that haven’t heard you before?
Dayme: “I would describe it as nostalgic, like very dreamy and very mood. You have to really, hands on, with your career by learning how to use protocols, learning how to use logic, learning how to edit videos because you’re constantly putting content together.”
