Lwam the Dreamer

I’ve always had amazingly talented friends in my life. Friends who have personalities and dreams that are bigger than life.

My friend Lwam Tecle fits this description perfectly. We met almost 8 years ago at  church. Those were the days we would skip out on the service to run to Chipotle or chat in the church bathroom.

Ever since I have known Lwam she has wanted to become a singer. I’ll never forget the day she first sang for me. We were sitting in our church bathroom. She went into a stall and I sat on the couch.

Lwam wasn’t comfortable with singing in front of me. I remember her smooth, sweet voice filling the bathroom.

Her dream to become a singer is slowly becoming a reality. She recently moved to L.A. to pursue her dream.

She gave me the opportunity to interview her about her quest to become a singer.

Q:How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a singer?

A:I remember being in Kindergarten. I think that means age 5? I just remember singing for my first communion, and if people asked I told them I wanted to be a singer when i grew up.

Q:What is the best part about performing?

A:I think the best part about performing is giving people a chance to get to know your personality.

Q:Who are your musical inspirations?

A:They are always changing! Lol, right now, I’d have to say Janelle Monae, Black Keys and Florence and the Machine.

Q:What inspires you the most in life?

A:Wanting to help other people, I haven’t figured out just how I am going to do that yet. I just feel like it is my purpose to help people and I don’t want to fail… i guess thats what inspires me and keeps me going.

Q:If you had to describe yourself in a phrase that only contains three words what would it be?

A:Goofy, lover, dreamer

Q:What message would you like to portray through your music?

A: Everyone can relate to everyone else in some way, you aren’t alone in the way you feel.

Q:What is the best part about living in L.A.?

A:Hands down the weather! It’s January and I still don’t need a coat!

Q:What is one hidden talent/interesting thing you can that no one else knows about?
