Artist Interviews


  • MuzicNotez Crew: First off, it’s an honor to be doing this interview with you Cali, thanks for taking the time to sit down with us.
    • Cali Miles: Thank YOU! I appreciate the support!
  • MuzicNotez Crew: What motivated you to start creating music? What age did you begin?
    • Cali Miles: I started writing songs when I was 9 years old. I remember singing Whitney Houston’s The Greatest love of All for all my parent’s friends and neighbors. I also started my first girl group when I was 9. I’ve always been a writer and performer as far back as I can remember.
  • MuzicNotez Crew: Who were your musical influences, idols, or bands growing up that have helped mold you into the musician you are today? Or helped mold the music that you create?
    • Cali Miles: I grew up Listening to Whitney, Mariah Carey, Madonna, and Michael Jackson. I’m also influenced by 90’s Hip Hop and R&B. I remember rapping Salt-N-Pepa and singing SWV on the playground! Pop stars and Boy bands were all the rage when I was growing up, but I’ve also always loved old school R&B and Soul music. My mother had me listening to Linda Ronstadt and studying musical theater. I think that’s where my versatility comes from.
  • MuzicNotez Crew: What’s the greatest concert you’ve ever been to or performed?

    • Cali Miles: I saw R&B singer Joe perform at the House of Blues in Cleveland. I got to meet him afterward and hang out and sing for him. His music really made me fall in love with R&B and want to be an R&B singer, so finally meeting him and telling him how much he’d inspired me was epic!
  • MuzicNotez Crew: What’s the ultimate goal you want your music to achieve, or for you to achieve in your career as a musician? Any particular message you wish to send?
    • Cali Miles: I recently realized that I’m not just here to make fun pop music. I’m very passionate about a lot of issues and feel it’s my responsibility to share that passion and my knowledge with people. The overall message is love and unity, and always girl power! I want to encourage people to question what they’ve always been told or taught to believe. Too many people just go along with what they see on TV. I want to wake people up and inspire them become proactive!
