It's time to introduce you to our newest fresh face and this time it's youtuber Kara Della Valle! Kara is taking youtube by storm with her covers and orginal music. So let's get to know her!
GB:How did you get your start?
Kara: YouTube was the first place I ever put myself out there as a musician. People in my personal life didn't even know I wrote songs or sang. When I started YouTube I didn't even play guitar yet so I think it was the perfect place for me to grow. Just one day I was bored with a friend who did play guitar and I mentioned to her that I wrote songs and we filmed it and put it up and I was hooked ever since!
GB: Youtube is one of your platforms. How do you choose what your next song is going to be?
Kara: Sometimes it takes me a while to put new music up because I always want to make sure I can relate to the song I'm singing. I always say that honesty is my favourite part of music. When I do decide what song I'm going to put up, it's always because I can relate to it. It's always fun looking back and watching the videos and knowing how I felt back then. My YouTube channel is my public diary in a way. The people who support me know everything.
GB:To anyone hoping to get a start on Youtube what do you recommend?
Kara:Just do it! I think a lot of people think about success more than having fun, and you need to make sure you're doing what you love. People will know your intentions even if you come off the opposite. Just be honest with yourself and put out what you want, and other people will appreciate it. I think YouTube is the best thing that has happened to me and I hope everyone with a dream or a hobby puts themselves out there. It's amazing what can happen.
GB: Being a Fresh Face to the music industry, what challenges have you faced?
Kara: It's hard because there's so many people doing exactly what I'm trying to do. We all have the same goals and it's difficult watching someone else get your dream sometimes. I'm so thankful for the support I've gotten so far and never would've imagined anything close to it. This industry is hard, but every time someone's tells me my song changed their day or made them feel better, it's 100% worth it. I wouldn't give it up for anything.
GB: What do you have planned next?
Kara: What I really want to do next is start playing live more often. I haven't gotten a chance to get out there yet and I'd love to see that happen. The support of everyone is allowing me to get closer to that. I do have a free live show in Syracuse, NY coming up in the spring featuring some other youtubers, which I'm so pumped for! All that information will be on my website www.karadellavalle.com soon! xx Gabbie
