We had the good fortune of connecting with Sorry X and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sorry X, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
When it comes to pursuing your passion, it will require many sacrifices including investing time that could be spent with loved ones or money that could be spent on material wants. If you truly love what you are doing then nothing will be able to make you give up and all of the sacrifices will be worth it. It’s important in times of distress to take a step back and recognize all of the amazing ways pursuing your passion has rewarded you and will continue to do so. However, sometimes if you take a step back you may find that you’ve lost the joy that once led you to pursuing your dream in the first place and in your heart you may feel it’s time to move on. The truth is you have to decide on your own whether to keep going or to give up.
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.
I am a solo artist that is dedicated to bringing a new sound to the mainstream. I blend genres to create alternative rock with trap elements. I have pursued music my entire life in search of the sound I was truly meant to make. It took me years to find it but once I did I began to quickly see results like I had never seen before. I have worked relentlessly as a female artist in the industry to prove myself and through continued growth I have reached heights that I never thought possible. You will make mistakes and waste time and money with any new business endeavor but you will learn and become stronger from it. Overall believing in yourself, a bit of risk, and committing to never ending growth will take you as far as you let it.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would definitely take them to Sedona which is my favorite City in Arizona. It is such a beautifully unique place to adventure. We could go hiking, check out the sites and get ice cream! I also love the night life and bars in Downtown Phoenix like playing Pinball at Cobra Arcade Bar.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a shoutout to my parents for supporting me through all of the sacrifices that I have had to make to pursue my dreams. Not everyone gets to take the chance to pursue their passions and although it’s a big risk, they have supported me every step of the way.
