We had the good fortune of connecting with Selin Eskandarian and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Selin, what do you want your legacy to be?
I want my legacy to be two things: The girl who people loved to listen to and the girl who made people laugh. I want people to enjoy listening to me as much as I love playing and singing. I want people to feel the emotions I feel through my art. I also want people to remember me as a musician with a great sense of humor! I LOVE making people laugh and using my music for some light comedy. I believe laughter is the best medicine and obviously, music is as well!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
As a kid, I was always a musician. I was able to play any melody by ear on any instrument. Finally I picked the piano, violin and my vocals to express my art. Now, I am a one man band for wedding ceremonies. Not only do I play pop electric violin to backing tracks, but I also sing and can play Ukulele as well. I feel like playing multiple instruments really sets me apart from the others. Also with my instruments, I can play any genre of music.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my bff was coming to town, I would plan a staycation with her in Sedona. I LOVE Sedona. It is truly a magical place. I would definitely plan a week trip and we would eat at all the popular restaurants. We would be staying at a nice resort, hiking all the beautiful trails and visiting all the mom and pop shops. That is of course if we had endless money to spend! We would do spa days and enjoy the beautiful red rocks of Sedona.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to my parents. I know it sounds cliche, but my entire life they always encouraged me to do whatever I wanted. I’ve never been afraid of taking big steps and it’s because my parents believed in me. They always told me I could do anything and here I am, literally living my dream.
