We had the good fortune of connecting with Remy Neal and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Remy, how do you think about risk?
Risk is a part of the fabric of my daily life. Without it, I would not be where I am. When I was 18, I moved to NYC with $500 in cash and my suitcase. At times it was tough, but ultimately it taught me many things and allowed for growth.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a creator. My primary form of expression is through music. I love creating a listening experience that inspires you to move and lift the vibrations. I am so excited about this new album. It tells a wonderful story about Human and the process of embracing their darkness to find their light. At times I find things to ebb and flow effortlessly, while others are difficult. I’ve learned that life is much simpler if you take time to yourself and breathe. Letting go has been something that I have struggled with, either with creation, living situations, lovers… the list goes on. I find my life is easier when I stop, evaluate and release the things I cling to most. When I worked in the theatre, an expression I heard writers speak of was, “kill your darlings.” It was the thought process that you had to release the thing you wanted most in order to obtain what you really needed. I want everyone to know that they aren’t broken, time does heal, and just when you think you can’t go on anymore there’s light at the end of the journey.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
As an Aquarius, planning is not on the itinerary; let’s just see where the journey takes us.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Life is a journey, full of wonderful people that weave in and out of our story. Over the years I have been fortunate to meet many wonderful people that have shaped my evolution. Family by far has played the most important role in shaping my view of the world. They taught me to be positive through adversity and to take time for myself when I need to reset. Ernie Fimbres, Walter Winston O’Neil, Luz Ladrillono, Mr. Walker, Mary Marquart and Kristen Ford are muses that have pushed me beyond my comfort zone and to evolve as an artist. I am forever grateful to them.
