In this exclusive interview, Re-Mi talks about his musical journey so far and his plans for the future.
Interviewer: Give us a brief of your background.
Re-Mi: I started music at 8 in a church choir. I got all my basics from there. In 2010, I had my first ever studio session and my passion increased. I started recording songs until I was able to release my first single “pa ka viv san ou” in 2014. It was also my first success in the music industry.
Interviewer: Tell us about your journey into the music industry so far.
Re-Mi: To be honest, it’s been quite a hard journey. You have to determined and dedicated to your passion. But I had a lot of good moments and met a lot of amazing people. One of my favorite was the Trace Music Star audition in 2016 where I qualified for the finals. I’m an independent artist so I handle most of my career on my own. It’s harder, but then enjoy my victories even more. Recently I managed to get one of my videos on Trace Haïti, for the song “Mwen in love”. I hope that I’ll eventually find a team I could work with in order to go even further in my career.
Interviewer: What inspired you to become a musician?
Re-Mi: Like most of the youths of my generation, I was astonished by Michael Jackson’s voice and live performances. I was seven when I felt that I would be a singer and Michael Jackson was one of my biggest influences.
Interviewer: What is the inspiration behind your latest single “Madan’m Mwen”?
Re-Mi: In my song “Madame Mwen” I really wanted to express this idea of commitment. I know that women feel really concerned about this step of their life where they want to settle with a man, marry, have a family. I wanted to make a song that they could feel, especially because it’s coming from a man. Nowadays people don’t wanna engage themselves no more, so I think that my song can give them some hope.
Interviewer: Where do you aspire to be in the music industry?
Re-Mi: I want to get to a point where I can make a living of my passion. I wouldn’t say that I wanna be a star. I wanna go as far as possible with my music and share my passion with people around the world. I also want to represent my island haïti everywhere that I go.
