Hello Kacy, can you tell us all a little bit about yourself before you became a country musician?Hi!! My life before singing and songwriting was all about martial arts. I was actually homeschooled my whole life so I could travel and compete.
Who are some of your musical icons?Shania Twain was definitely my #1 growing up! I love Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Patrick Droney, Christina Aguilera, Kevin Garrett… I could go on and on!
What is the background story behind your newest single “I Don’t Miss You?”It’s about a guy who would only text me to hangout late at night – he never made plans in advance or wanted to take me on a date. I know most girls have been there! I fell for it for awhile but when I moved on I realized what a player he was.
What is your recording process like when creating and making new music?As a songwriter I always like to come into the room with a concept or lyric ideas. Melody is super important of course but storytelling is really what I love the most. After a writing session i’ll sing the song into the voice memos app on my phone and send it to my producer who will start building the track! It varies from song to song – sometimes I’ll record my vocals after the track is almost finished, or sometimes I’ll record my vocals and there’s only drums and piano (which is literally what happened a couple of days ago.) and the rest of the track gets finished after. It’s always a super fun process! When you’re working with other creative minds you never know what’s gonna happen.
How would you describe your music in 3 to 5 words?Honest, flirty, fresh, relatable
What are a few of your favorite venues to play at?Before the world shut down I was actually lucky enough to play at the W Hotel in Hollywood and that was absolutely amazing! Some iconic artists have played there. My next goal is to play Whiskey Jam at Winner’s in Nashville!
What made you want a career in country music?I was always drawn to music and performing. I can’t pinpoint it to a specific moment because from my earliest memory I was running around singing. It was just always in me! I grew up in the south, and country music reminds me where I came from. I also love the storytelling aspect of it. I think Shania Twain really combined a cool pop/rock element with country and kind of paved the way for artists like myself. I love country, but I like to put my own twist on it and incorporate other genres I love like pop, r&b and hip hop.
What is one of your favorite quotes?“To be a master is to forever be a student”
Is there anything else you would like to share?First off thank you so much for this interview! It was so fun. I have a new single coming out very soon, and an exciting announcement following that release. If you want to keep up with me, I’m @kacymoonmusic on all socials!
