We had the good fortune of connecting with Agnes Azria and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Agnes, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
I’m inspired by the ability music has to connect with people. I think connecting with each other is one of the most important parts of life, and music is such a direct, emotional avenue to relate and help you feel understood.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a singer/songwriter/producer and I’ve released two EP’s in the last two years. You should expect a lot more self-produced releases and collaborations in 2022 as well as live shows depending on the pandemic. I am very proud of how self-sufficient I’ve become as a performer and artist. I’ve worked hard on orchestrating a unique live performance, using different looping instruments which allowed me to be a one woman show. I hope when you listen to my music or come to a show, it sounds like something you haven’t heard or seen before.

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.
Okay a week long trip in LA would typically take place on and around the pch. You can start if you like diner food at Patrick’s Roadhouse, and then go down that yellow tunnel under the pch towards the beach and spend the rest of your morning by the shore. Then if you want to be fancy you can go to Georgio Ebaldi’s or the taco place by it for lunch. If you keep heading down Malibu you’ll reach El Matador Beach which has some beautiful caves, and get fish and chips at The Reel Inn. Then if you want to head back to the city, you can shop at some vintage stores like Jetrag, or the flea market depending on the day. At night you can go dancing at Los Globos, or try the popsicle beers at El Diablo. And those are just some ideas for a week long trip in LA. But it doesn’t really matter what you do, it’s the company that makes it fun.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to extend my gratitude to Ric Whitney, for believing in me and pushing me to release my first project. My best friend Nahal Yashar for always supporting me and keeping me focused, and all my other friends who tell me to keep going and help me create the memories that inspire and fuel my new songs.
