Naomi Psalm- Music Artist, Songwriter, and Mother
Jax: Balancing a life of family and friends can be tough leaving little or no time to tap into your creativity, what is your experience and how do you manage a balance?
Naomi: A creative mind thrives on spontaneous moments of artist release, however, with a family that is usually not possible. I find I need to schedule time to be creative when no one is home, or perhaps plan ahead to get away a write music or paint. On the upside, when I do get the coveted hour here and there, I find myself highly motivated to make progress creating.
Jax: How do you feel that you have contributed to our music culture? Do you feel that you have or are about to create music that signifies american pop culture of your time? If so in what way?
Naomi: I feel my music has been relevant to today’s culture, especially my song about texting and how society has made it so face to face time is less and less important.
Jax: What does a typical music day like for you? Describe your timeline of a day where music performing, inspiration or creation was involved.
Naomi: I have a part-time job and I don’t really think I could fit in a full time job as busy as I am with music. When I am home and have time, I spend it marketing on line, social networking a ton because I feel it is very important to stay connected with my fans. Songwriting, writing set lists, booking shows and playing shows. Like I mentioned, my time comes in blocks of about an hour here and there, so I chip away at my music career each moment I am able.
