We had the good fortune of connecting with Elodie Rêverie and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Elodie, looking back, what do you think was the most difficult decision you’ve had to make?
I decided to drop out of college my after my first semester as a freshman, which was difficult for because I was afraid of failure and was uncertain what the future held. I took a gap year and spent 6 months living in the high desert of Nevada where I learned to bow drill, aka make fire with natural materials, a process that requires endurance, and focus. The pay off, creating a flame is an incredible release.
It’s funny because making music for me is similar to making fire. It’s a release of tension that requires focus and endurance 🙂
When I returned to college I graduated with high honors… oh and confronting my fear of failure early on has paid off because it gave me the courage to pursue a career in music, and a lot of people are afraid to take that leap.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Through hard work, I think I am able to harness my emotions and communicate them sonically and others resonate.. I make a lot of animations as well and when I perform I wear gold LED light up sneakers:)
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?
-In N Out 🙂 -Harvelles Night Club
-Bike ride to Venice canals
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to dedicate my shoutout to Dido Nydick who animates visuals for my music. Our music video Under the Radar is up for several festival awards and has won a few, and she is one of the people who keeps me going and has given my musical journey special meaning.
