Interview with Abby Jasmine
How was the reception been to Who Cares been this year?
It’s been amazing! Ive gotten so much love that I really didn’t even expect. I was nervous to put it out but I’m really glad I did, a lot of people seem to relate to it.
What was your favourite gig to date?
Playstation Theater, NYC. I grew up going to concerts there, so to perform on that stage was a crazy feeling.
Which of your songs means the most to you and why?
All of them are important to me because I can reflect on the memories connected with each one. I can remember where I was, how I was feeling, and how I’ve grown since then. Twenty/Twenty is one of my favourites though. Every time I hear it, it just reminds me to stay focused.
Describe your style in 3 words:
Comfy, Cozy, Luxe
How has lockdown affected your creativity?
Sometimes it made me lazier, because there wasn’t much to do. On the other hand though, I’ve been exploring new hobbies & interests that I normally wouldn’t have time for. I started painting, playing piano again, teaching myself how to do nails, recording myself. Anything to escape being bored and sitting on my phone all day.
Last show you binge watched?
I just rewatched Bojack Horseman because I’m sad It ended
