The dark pop artist HEXEN is relevantly unknown in the world of music. However, her powerful and moving music is starting to put her on the radar. This is our interview with her.
Hi, how are you?
I’m good, I’ve got tea and an evening of drawing merch designs ahead of me.
So, how did you come up with the name HEXEN?
I had a few names before I morphed into HEXEN. I re-incarnated a few times through the years, but now it just feels like the right word. In the end the universe just gave it to me and I ran with it.
When did you decide to start working on music?
About two years ago it started pulling me towards it. I’ve always done music in some way or another, but limited myself due to a lack of confidence. For about six months the idea sort of bubbled around my brain, and then one day I walked away from my entire life and started again with music as my primary focus.
Do you have anything exciting in the works?
I’m going to be putting out a single a month for the rest of 2017, plus a video or two here and there. There will be a heavily visual element accompanying most new works.
Outside of music do you have any hobbies that you like to escape to?
I’ve always done visual art & creative writing. They’re not escapes though, all of my creative work (visual art, writing, music) ends up informing each other. Outside of creative work I’m mostly just focusing on exploring reality.
Describe your music in one word.
Describe yourself in one word.
If you could give any advice to any aspiring musicians out there what would it be?
Just do it. Stop wondering if you’re good enough. Trust your instincts not your anxieties. Don’t place limits on yourself.
What is your definition of culture?
