We are so excited to be talking to the Singer/ Songwriter Constanza Herrero who has stolen our hearts this holiday!
Where are you located now and where are you originally from? I moved last year to The US and I am currently living in Los Angeles, CA. I am originally from Chile but lived 9 years in Australia before moving here.
Who has been your greatest influence? I’ve been influenced by a variety of different artists and genres. Living in different countries has really helped me to learn from different sounds and cultures and you can see that displayed on my music. I have been influenced by songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Regina Spektor, Queen, Stevie Wonder, etc. And of course some Latin American songwriters such as Silvio Rodriguez and Violeta Parra. Mostly by artists who have really used their music as an instrument to communicate meaningful messages, and that have had the courage to speak up staying true to themselves.
What is your latest and greatest? The release of my upcoming Christmas single, which is an arrangement of one of my favorite Christmas songs called ‘Silent Night’. I am very excited to share this version, really hoping to encourage every listener with the message of hope of this song. I will also be releasing a music video for it next week.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021? I long to see more unity in 2021. 2020 has really revealed a lot about the human heart when it is tested in challenging circumstances. I hope that we can all bring to this new year the lessons learnt from 2020. That we would be open to seek the truth and hold on to hope.
What would you say to your younger self if you could? Your purpose in life is much bigger than your dreams.
On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you?
How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success?
I believe that in this career opportunities will meet you and will take you closer to your goals or they will perfectly fit in your plans. But I don’t like to call that luck, as I believe that each one of us is always exactly where we are meant to be. And even when things don’t go as we wish, I call them blessings in disguise.
How can we stay up to date with you?
