Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I’m from New Jersey. I grew up in Orlando, Florida and Scotch Plains, NJ but I
live in Kinnelon, NJ now. I moved around a bit but I’ve been in Jersey for years now. It’s
a great place to be.
Who has been your greatest influence?
This is a tough question because I have so many, but I’d have to say Amy
Winehouse. She is probably the most talented lyricist of the 21 st century. She is
universal anyone could listen to her music and enjoy it, feel it. Her voice is so versatile,
and her lyrics paint the most vivid imagery. She tells a story in a way that you can relate
to deeply and that’s powerful.
What is your latest and greatest?
Oh, definitely my new guitar! I just got a D’Angelico Ludlow Deluxe. I’ve been
wanting one for so long I love it.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
I can’t wait to perform and connect with my supporters on a more intimate level. I
miss being on stage. That’s the most authentic way to share your art as a musician in
my eyes. That and dancing and drinking at crowded bars. Definitely a vibe.
What would you say to your younger self if you could?
I would tell her it’s okay to feel your emotions. You don’t have to be so strong all
the time. Life is to be free and make mistakes, not to be perfect. Tell someone if they
hurt your feelings. It doesn’t make you weak. Vulnerability is beautiful and strong.
On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you?
Ten for sure! Once I set my mind to something that’s all I’m focused on. If I set a
standard for myself I know I need to reach it. It’s about honoring myself and doing things
that benefit my future self.
How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success?
Luck plays a major role, but luck is nothing with out preparedness. If you are not
prepared for an opportunity but it comes is that really lucky? Luck is about both timing
and preparedness coming together to take you to the level you want to be at.
How can we stay up to date with you?
Best way to keep up with me is on Instagram and Twitter! You can find me on
Instagram and TikTok with @paolalaunica. Twitter is my favorite I’m probably on there
the most. My twitter page is @paolalaunicaa.
