We had the good fortune of connecting with Chianne Ozgur and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chianne, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
Oh I can’t really think of ONLY ONE important lesson that my musical journey taught me, it’s been continuously teaching me SEVERAL lessons.
I’m gonna try to share some of them below in bullet marks 🙂
-Authenticity. Don’t be a copycat or try to follow a “formula of success”. Don’t mold or change yourself in order to fit in. If you want true success and deep fulfillment; being yourself is not negotiable.
-Be Brave. Be brave enough to listen to your heart, tune out the outer voice, what people think of you or say to you, and just be conscious of your own patterns that may be self-sabotaging your growth and success. Inner work is a pathway to freedom of self-expression.
-Focus your attention on what you can give to the world and how you can serve and make a difference. Having personal goals is always good but when we come from a space of “purpose” then it is a true driving factor that brings about real satisfaction.
-Have a vision about where you are going, but drop the expectations that how things need to unfold. Embrace the uncertainty and just be present.
-Be a vessel for divine creation. Empty yourself over and over so divine inspiration and creativity can flow through you.
-Growth happens outside of your comfort zone. You gotta get out of it in order to grow and reach your goals.
-Be childlike. Be playful. Love what you do.
And the list goes on and on…. :))
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I believe we are all unique with unique gifts. As an artist, my main message is to be yourself, to believe in yourself and your dreams, listen to the heart, and be present. I write about self-love and unconditional love. Incorporating pop with some conscious, inspiring, empowering lyrics and timeless melodies. 🙂 I had challenges around these areas I mentioned above and that’s how my own wounds became my medicine for the world. 🙂
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
LA offers so many good things. I love the westside, Venice, Malibu, etc. But also love the WEHO & downtown for more culture, diversity, and fun. I’d take them to cool brunches, hikes, dinners, beach, museums, etc. I’d usually write down all the possible options before someone comes to visit. 🙂
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
So many amazing souls helped me in my journey. I am grateful for every single one of them. 🙂
