Tell us about your story. Who is Symon and how did your singing career started?
Hi my name is Symon and I grew up in LA being a very crazy, fun, passionate, wild kid and I knew that I was destined to be an artist. I grew up studying music at a very young age and honing in on my craft very young which led me to starting a band when I was 16. The band had many incredible opportunities and definitely helped shape me as an artist. But in my heart, I knew that I needed to be my own artist.
When did you start singing and what inspired you to be a singer? I started very young and was so inspired at such a young age by artists. I remember watching TRL in elementary school studying the artists that came on and how they held themselves from the second they walked on, to the way they introduced their music, to the way they conveyed their music. I was mesmerized. Then I started digging deep in music and finding out who truly ignited something within me and I found that to be TLC, No Doubt, and the late 90's early 2000's pop invasion of Swedish writers such as Max Martin and Andreas Carlsson.
Tell us about your song SAY. What is it about?
Say is my baby. Say was the first song I wrote after the break of my band. It was the song that was introducing everyone to who I was as a solo artist. It not only has my name in it but it's fun, cheeky, and a perfect intro to the EP.
