Monika Cefis: Interview

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am a musician because it is the most sincere way in which I

connect with others.

Why do you do what you do?

Music is my passion. It is my true first language because it allows

me to express myself not more efficiently, but more sincerely.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

When I was younger, I used to create percussive

madness with pots, pans and wooden spoons while

pretending to be Neil Pert. I believe that my love for

music stemmed from that moment (which I tend to often

to re-enact in kitchens everywhere).

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

As an artist, one of the big challenges is perseverance.

Sometimes it is hard to keep up with the pace and I

definitely have to thank everyone who has supported,

encouraged and taken part what I do.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Everything I have encountered has been a part in

altering the way I think and has helped me grow.

Hopefully I can one day inspire others in return with my


Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I released my debut EP, Pineapple Shakes, in June and, after

performing and touring this past summer, I am currently working on

a second project which I intend to release in 2015.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

“Work hard, play hard”
