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

Hi GIOVANNA, what role has risk played in your life or career?
It was a major risk for me personally to move out here on my own last year after deciding against signing my first deal; I only knew a handful of producers I worked with prior to moving and just fully bet on myself to make things shake how they’d need to.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?

Since coming to LA I’ve been blessed to do a bit of modeling and have some cameos in videos and things; really the only thing I love more than being in the studio is being on set.

That being said, what mainly keeps me busy is music; studio sessions, shooting videos, writing, editing, etc. Alongside the team I’ve been working with since coming to LA, I’ve been planning my rollout for the rest of the year and top of next, which I’m super excited for. I have a few songs & visuals coming in the next few months before my EP “HEAVEN IS HERE.”

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.
I’d definitely take them to Manhattan Beach as it’s the closest thing I can find out here that’s like the beaches back home. Besides outdoor stuff like hiking and beaches, we’d for sure have to hit one of the museums. Food-wise, I’d definitely have to take them to Poncho’s Taqueria in Panorama City for the best birria tacos in LA, or to one of my favorite Thai spots in Hollywood.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to shoutout the big brother God gave me, Yaz Britt. He’s a remarkable A&R, friend, and closest thing to a mentor I’ve known for years since I first started dropping music on Soundcloud. He’s been helping to guide me in the right direction in the music space since the very jump; we met when I was still in school in Florida. I couldn’t be more grateful to know him.
