You’ll Want to Stay a While w/ Antoinette’s Music
Let’s take some time to get to know more about Antoinette – a fresh yet soulful singer-songwriter based in Vancouver, Canada.
SB (StarBeat): From the Top: How did you get started with music?
AL (Antoinette Libelt): My mom is a singer as well and I grew up going to her shows and seeing her perform. Singing was always something I had done and it seemed like the natural path for my life. I picked up the guitar in my teens and have been writing songs and playing ever since.
SB: Class in Session: Did you have any musical training?
AL: Yes after high school I did a couple years of music school. That really helped me take things to the next level. I was exposed to a lot of different type of music and got to play with other awesome musicians. I learned a lot about recording as well so I was able to create my own home studio and record my own EP.
SB: Top Picks: Any favourite bands or singers?
AL: I love both new and older groups but the ones I always come back to are Fleetwood Mac, Heart, Queen and (of course) The Beatles.
Too many to mention but some of my fave singers are Corinne Bailey Rae, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and Marvin Gaye.
SB: Crystal Ball: What plans do you have for the future?
AL: For the last few months I’ve been focusing on recording my EP and now that it’s been released I’m so excited to get back to writing new songs. I’m excited for everyone to hear what I’ve been working on and to me it’s only the beginning.
The great thing about music is that it’s always evolving.
