Gina DiGiorio just released her single “This Isn’t That”. She is following in the footsteps of the great pop artists with this track. She tells us all to be ourselves and not compare ourselves to others.
Hi Gina. Thanks for taking the time to chat with me. You started on screen and stage. What inspired you to make the change and become a musician?
I’ve always loved pop music, and then I eventually decided to write my own songs. I wanted to write music that I liked, and also thought other people could relate to.
Who are your musical influences?
I’ve been inspired by a lot of artists throughout the years such as The Beatles, Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, etc.
What can you tell me about the new song “This Isn’t That”?
The song is about being yourself and not comparing your life to others. I wanted to create a song that would inspire and empower people.
Where did the inspiration come from for the track?
This has been a difficult year for a lot of people, and I wanted to make a song that others could relate to.
Such a powerful message in the song about being yourself. What do you want your listeners to take away from the song?
I hope people can be inspired, and not feel like they have to listen to other people’s negative comments. I want my listeners to find confidence through my music.
What would you say is your creative process?
I start by getting ideas for concepts and song titles by sometimes just thinking of creative phrases, observing others in everyday life, and also listening to other people’s conversations. There’s a lot you can learn just from doing these things.
Are you a creative person with things other than music?
Yes, I enjoy acting too. Recently, I’ve been a working actor in some indie films, and I also have music that’s featured in the soundtracks. I’m looking forward to continuing to do that.
How has the state of the country affected your music release?
It hasn’t affected my life much, I’ve still been able to put out music, but I miss performing for my fans.
What would be your dream collaboration?
I would love to collaborate with BTS someday. I think their music is inspirational to a lot of people.
Always a fun question. What is your favorite thing about performing on stage?
I love seeing all my fans come out to support me. I really thrive off their energy, and it keeps me going.
What is to come yet this year for you?
I’m going to be releasing new music soon, and I hope to perform somewhere by the end of the year.
Something fun and random to end this chat. Favorite ice cream flavor?
I love Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough core ice cream!
