Who Is Luna Grey?!
Luna Grey is an abstract individual who is working hard to cement her position as a truly modern crossover hip hop and pop artist. Her third single, Nonconformist, is a fiesty fusion of Luna’s hard-hitting lyrics and sweet 808 fills.
This young creative loves to play with melodic rhymes and intoxicating harmonies. Luna Grey’s eclectic combination of sounds has been described as new wave music for the old soul. Previous releases, Heavensent and 7 Days, have boasted powerful vocals and classic elements of urban genres within the pulsing percussion.
The new single, Nonconformist is a rebellious expression from Luna Grey. It boasts her distinctive delivery, narrating a life that thrives outside of the norm. Promoting personal truths and freedom of expression within her music, Luna Grey unveils a darkly emotive re-imagination of pop in 2020.
Luna Grey says: “Being a nonconformist is about allowing your mind to think freely, even when society tells us to live in a box. When we challenge ourselves to live and speak our unfiltered truth, we are able to evolve.”
The Hype Magazine got the young lioness to weigh in on a few things!
From the outside looking in, introduce us to Luna Grey!
As an avid believer in self-growth and love, I make music as a way to release the pieces of my past that I couldn’t otherwise cope with. I went through some really dark days and I would drive myself crazy reliving them over and over in my mind. When I write a song, I feel free. My story becomes tangible… I can disassociate from it or dive into it. At the end of the day, I am here to create a world for people to escape into. Especially for those who can relate.
What brought you to the entertainment industry, music specifically?
I had a lot of negative coping mechanisms when I was young. Music was the one escape that was positive. Instead of destroying, I was creating and knowing I was adding to the world made me feel complete.
What do you want to accomplish with your music?
I want to inspire people to stay true to themselves and I want to create an escape for those who may not feel free to do that.
Tell us about your current project.
My latest song ‘Big Boys’ is about how I began to regain control of my life and happiness. I found my power again. There is no shame in living out your truth. When you overcome obstacles you become stronger than you were before you faced them. There is always good in having new experiences, even if they seem to be bad.
For new listeners, what song of yours would you pick as an introduction to you as an artist?
I would choose ‘Scars’ because it is the most personal to me and I wrote it from a dark place but it’s a very motivating song.
Tell us a bit about your work and passions OUTSIDE of music…
I am very passionate about staying connected to the spiritual realm. I believe that everything we do is for a greater good. I never want to lose sight of that.
Last but not least, HYPE wants to know…What’s your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?!” aka WTF?! Moment…
I got fired from my first job as an optometrist during training because I left a journal that I brought from home so I could take notes at the job. The journal also contained endless pages of lyrics and raps I wrote. They looked in it to see who it belonged to and let’s just say there were some pretty graphic and gritty lyrics. They told me not to come back.Tweet
