She’s no genie but she has musical messages that have been bottled up for years, that are sure to make her dreams come true!! She’s surprisingly shy and has been singing and writing behind the scenes her whole life and now, from out of the blue, Mytra Grant a.k.a. “Stuck On Tell” arises!! For she is like a secret that has been kept – far too long and although it’s been a long time coming, she’s finally here!! So get ready, get set, get STUCK ON TELL!! Her Debut Single, “NO X-MAS FOR ME” was released in November 2019 and now she’s back with her 2nd release, “ADD ANOTHER ZERO” which is her Covid-19 Anthem. She invites the world to absorb her musical message, as it tells an incredible story and pays tribute to the millions and millions of people across the nations, that have been affected by this frightening virus. Her message is beautifully made clear; that we are all in this fight together an WE WILL SURVIVE!!
MUSIC IS EVERYTHING TO ME!! IT'S PART OF MY LIFELINE AND DNA!! ASIDE FROM GOD, FAMILY AND FRIENDS, IT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE TO ME!! IT IS PART OF MY GIFT AND PURPOSE AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT DEFINE ME. IT IS THE MERE KEY TO MY EXISTENCE. I, OF COURSE, WAS CREATED FOR MANY PURPOSES AND THE MAIN ONE BEING THAT IT PLEASES GOD AND TO SERVE HIM FOR ALL OF MY DAYS. AND TOO, IT MUST HAVE BEEN PLEASING UNTO GOD TO BLESS ME WITH THE GIFT(S) OF WRITING AND SINGING. MUSIC GIVES ME FULFILLMENT AND IS A PATHWAY TO MY DESTINATION WHICH IS SURE TO TAKE ME AROUND THE WORLD, TO PLACES THAT I MAY NEVER GET TO GO PHYSICALLY; PLACES THAT I CAN ONLY IMAGINE. MUSIC, MOST DEFINITELY, GIVES ME A REASON TO LIVE AND ADDS MORE MEANING TO MY LIFE. IN MANY WAYS, I MUST SAY, THAT MUSIC SAVES ME!! IT SAVES ME FROM A VERY COLD AND LONELY WORLD; A WORLD THAT SOMETIMES FAILS TO CARE AND ONE THAT SOMETIMES SEEMINGLY FORGETS.
MY DREAM IS FOR MY MUSICAL MESSAGES TO SPREAD AROUND THE WORLD LIKE A SUMMER'S SNOW - UNBELIEVABLY RARE AND UNHEARD OF AND LIKE A SLOW TRAIN COMING - UNSTOPPABLE, STRONG AND STEADY!! I WANT FOR MY MUSIC TO BE RECEIVED IN EVERY HEART, CAR, CELL PHONE AND HOUSE HOLD ACROSS THE NATIONS BECAUSE MY MUSIC IS FOR EVERYBODY EVERYWHERE!!
I WOULD DEFINITELY START WITH ME BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE TO, FIRST, MAKE SURE THAT I AM A PART OF THE CHANGE THAT I WOULD WANT THE WORLD TO BE.
MY MOST MEMORABLE SONG IS "SILLY" BY DENIECE WILLIAMS AND IT STILL REMAINS TO BE ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES.
I HAVE A VERY LONG LIST OF FAVORITE MUSIC ARTISTS RANGING FROM WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL SUCH AS DENIECE WILLIAMS, DIANA ROSS AND MINNIE RIPPERTON TO JAMIE FOXX, JENNIFER HUDSON AND MEGHAN TRAINOR. THERE'S QUITE A LONG LIST THAT LIES BETWEEN THE ABOVE MENTIONED... WHITNEY HOUSTON, MARIAH CAREY, CELINE DION, BONNIE RAIT, BEYONCE, JENNIFER HUDSON, ERICA BADU, FANTASIA, ETC.
SINCE MUSIC IS PART OF MY DNA, EVERYTHING INSPIRES ME TO MAKE MUSIC. I'M INSPIRED BY HOW I'M FEELING ON THE INSIDE, WHAT LIFE AND PEOPLE SHOW ME ON THE OUTSIDE, THINGS THAT GO ON INSIDE MY PERSONAL WORLD, THINGS THAT GOES ON AND HAPPENS IN THIS WORLD THAT WE ALL LIVE IN. GOD, LOVE, FAMILY, RELATIONSHIPS, HAPPINESS, PAIN, SADNESS, PARTICULAR PLACES, THE WEATHER OR CERTAIN TIMES OF THE YEAR SUCH AS HOLIDAYS ALL INSPIRE ME TO WRITE AND SING.
Along with my music, I want to send messages that are positive and inspirational. I want my listeners to understand that whatever the situation or issue is - that it can be put to music and brought into a lighter light. I want to send messages of strength and resilience as well as transparency and vulnerability. I want my musical messages to basically, TELL ALL!! I want my lyrical stories to make some laugh, others smile, some dream, others dance, some cry out, others believe, love and want to live again; want to keep on going and never give up nor give. I want my songful messages to help people and bring us ALL TOGETHER!!
When I perform in front of audiences, it's always the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO BE during those particular times!! Although, my adrenaline is pumping and I'm more anxious than any other time in my life, I can't wait for the music to drop when the curtains open!! Sometimes my hearts beating so fast that I can hardly catch my breath BUT when I do.... I open my mouth and God's Gift comes out and there comes "THAT FEELING" AGAIN!! I'VE NEVER HAD A FEELING QUITE AS SUCH IN ALL MY LIFE!!!!
Wow, this is not an easy question to answer. The reality of a musician these days and during these oh-so-trying times, most likely resemble that of a struggle. With the on-going and unfortunate pandemic that doesn't seem to be letting up any, it can't be easy for any musicians whether they've been in the game for decades or new on the scene and just starting their music careers. Finding ways to combat our biggest enemy which is Covid-19, getting everyone vaccinated, staying socially distanced, washing our hands, staying masked-up and disinfecting things around-the-clock would most definitely improve the lives, professions, situations and the realities we face as musicians and even those of non-musicians.
I am super new to Drooble but I can already say that, I think Drooble is GREAT!! I'm still learning how to maneuver through the tabs and figure out 'how to do a little of this and a whole lot of that' so I can make the best out of this experience and venture but I would most definitely recommend this community to other artists. For me, It has been a pathway of much needed bread crumbs to follow while being lost in this musical forrest.
As an Indie Artist, what frustrates me most is having to go-it-alone and not having the help and support that I need to get things done. The whole 'trying to figure things out on my own' and hours and hours of endless research and reading and sometimes "STILL" not understanding certain processes and what all needs to be done. Without a big musical support system or record label to take the wheel and guide you through it makes it super frustrating to me, personally.
Some of the qualities, in my opinion, that musicians should have nowadays are to be imaginative and creative and have the ability to write and create their own musical master pieces. Also, they should not just be able to sing but to play an instrument as well. They should be patient, persistent and resilient because this is not an easy business to be involved in and there's soooo soooo much to comprehend and endure. They should also be computer, music and business savvy to say the least.
