In a time where love is seen merely a game for some, New York native Deasia Hart has spoken up. Proclaiming herself as the voice for the unheard she is making it her mission to bring back “true” R&B. I was able to contact her within minutes of her first song release 427, a ballad about heartache and the pains of a failed relationship. We were able to discuss her music origins, influences, the state of R&B in mainstream America, and of course- her newly released song 427” – here’s what she had to say:

 

screen-shot-2016-10-04-at-11-41-40-amQ: Would you like to introduce yourself to our readers?

A: My name is Deasia Hart, I am 20 years old. I am from the

Lower East Side (Manhattan) born and raised.

 

Q: Is there anyone in your family who is also musically inclined?

A: The only person that can sing in my family (that we know of) is my

father and I.

 

Q: When did you start writing/singing?

A: I started singing at the age of 3 & writing my own lyrics at the age of 12.

At first, it was difficult for me because I would just write on a piece of paper

& wouldn’t know how to put the words together but over years I learned and improved.

 

Q: Do you write all of your own music?

A: Yes

 

Q: Do you tend to find inspiration from personal experiences?

A: Yes; my personal experiences led me to where I am today; wanting to go

further with my music and to build. The first time I hit the stage of Apollo Theater,

I knew I was capable of doing bigger and better things with my talent; I knew I

had the potential to capture many minds and many hearts with my voice.

 

Q: Are there any musicians you have been influenced by?

A: There are two musicians I have been influenced by: Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson.

Their voices touched millions of hearts all over the world, their songs and lyrics had so much

meaning to them & the passion they had when they performed made you want to cry on your knees.

Most of all, they were true to the words they sang.

But! The biggest inspiration I have is myself. I am the only one that can push myself for greater and

I am the only one that can create my future. I am the only one that can believe in myself.

Q: You just released your first song “427” can you explain what the title represents?

A: 427 is the date that my boyfriend and I got together. April 27.

 

Q: What was the inspiration behind this song?

A: The inspiration behind this song is looking in from a broken-hearted girl. One that was left in confusion and felt blamed for the cause of a horrible break up.

 

Q: Were you nervous about how people would react?

A: I was slightly nervous. This is my first song and my first time allowing everybody to hear my personal feelings. I’ve recognized that some love it & some don’t – or simply can’t relate to it but recognize that it tells a story. I was speaking up for myself and a lot of females that have been through tough break ups with no closure.

Q: How was the process in creating the song?

A: The process was easy & difficult at the same time. This song was created in the midst of our breakup so it brought back a lot of unwanted memories; but it only made me stronger.

 

Q: Now I’ve listened to this song around 3x since you released it,

would you say this one is for the ladies?

A: This is definitely for the ladies. I am speaking for all the broken hearted females out there.

I wanted to be able to say all the words they weren’t able to say. I want them to know that that

they are not alone and I am right here with them, we can get through this together and come out stronger than ever.

 

Q: When will this song be available to download?

A: Honestly, I’m not sure since I just released it but I will look into that as soon as possible.

 

Q: This song reminds me of a love/breakup song from late 90s, early 2000s,

would you say you’re influenced by contemporary R&B?

A: I am 100% influenced by R&B. I grew up on hip-hop and r&b so I connect with this genre.

 

Q: What are your thoughts on the state of R&B as of 2016?

A: In my opinion, artists don’t put as much feeling into music as they did in the 90s or even the early 2000s. It’s just not as real to me. My goal is to bring the REAL r&b back.

 

Q: Should we anticipate some more music in 2017?

A: Yes! You will be hearing a lot more from Deasia Hart. I want to be the voice for the unheard.

I hope to be their escape.

 

Q: Is there anything you would like to say to your supporters before we close this interview?
A: I would love to say thank you to everybody that has been supporting me. It has been an over whelming feeling knowing that there are people that love hearing me and would love to hear more from me. I’m not going to stop. And I can’t stop.
