CACHET means seal of approval or Mark of quality in the dictionary. I am determined to bring quality music to the public and always stay honest because I’m a realist so I feel like music should be based around those areas. I incorporate knowledge & quality in every song I write (hence my name Cachet) to help people not make the same mistakes that I have made or to achieve the same success I have achieved if at all possible.
Don’t sit around thinking that when the chance to show your artistry finally comes around, and it’s the right people, that they are going to sit around waiting for you to bone up, Be ready, get there now. Be the best you can be. The time to shine will come, be ready when the time comes.
Social media is extremely important and just get yourself out there. Don’t get in your own way with judgments, just start posting. Don’t do it scared. Whatever you do, do it 100% and be your best cheerleader!
I always wanted to sing professionally but unsupportive relationships in my late teens meant that I lost a lot of confidence in my musical ability and shelved my singing dreams for a while. When I was 21, I was asked to audition for a band after a band member heard me singing karaoke on a night out. I got the job and went on to work with a number of bands on the cabaret circuit and then moved onto working with original bands in more recent years.
I began writing poetry at a young age which eventually progressed into writing actual songs as a way to express myself creatively. It became a necessary outlet in order for me to understand and process certain thoughts and emotions I was feeling or going threw at any given time in my life. The good, bad and the ugly. It became therapeutic in a sense. Music allowed me to lose myself and find myself at the same time.
Their journey brings together people who want to escape the clutches of reality. To return to a place where you are never judged and only understood. Their commitment to their fans is one they treasure deeply, for Homerik is not just a band but a message for others to live life as full as they possibly can. To be “Homeric” is to be epic; the way life should be.
It’s very hard sometimes to maintain balance in my life with music. I go through spells where it feels like rock bottom, but you got to keep your head as high as you can. It’s like riding a bike, walking down the street, or running… if you fall, you get back up, dust off and keep on going.
I write on my own, just me, my piano, pencil and paper. Once songs are completed, I rehearse with my musicians to finalize the arrangements and put everything together – then it’s into the studio to record. I do tend to change things in the studio too though, and although I am always very clear on what I want to achieve and I am very open to changing things last minute – I think it’s a jazz thing!
Promising not to disappoint any of their older fans or new ones to come, The California Indie band Muk has come back after years of lying low. The band is dividing up the work and starting to conquer the challenges once again with a more powerful and dynamic energy.
