ZiggyBlue Talks About New Music Video Featuring Natalis and More
Ziggyblue, is an award-winning composer from Chicago now living in Atlanta. While growing up in Chicago, the birth of house music was seen as an opportunity that he took advantage of creating now classic, house songs for DJ International and Traxx Records. His love of music took him to Atlanta where he started composing music for GSU film students which lead to his first feature indie film project, “As Evil Does”.
Natalis Ruby Rubero is a Multi-platinum selling, 2x’s Grammy Nominated singer-songwriter straight out of the Bronx, NY. Her growing pains mainly took place in La Isla Del Encanto (Puerto Rico) with her grandparents, and on the Lower East Side with her mother and father.
Natalis’ angelic voice appears on J. Cole’s platinum-selling album Born Sinner (Roc Nation) and Kanye West’s Yeezus (Def Jam) as a background singer, and singing lead on the anthem of computer-animated TV series, Bratz “Rock Angelz” (Hip-O Universal). Her pen has also been featured on international double-platinum hit “Fuego” by 2018 Eurovision runner up, Eleni Foureira.
How did you come by your stage name?
It just came to me and I thought it was cool.
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
My love of music came from my brother actually. When I was a kid, I use to try to play my brother’s tuba. Spit was everywhere, lol.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I credit my sense of style from the group “The Time”.
On your upcoming project, how did you come up with the concept?
While I was in college, my professor introduced the bossa nova genre to me and I thought it was really cool.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
The greatest challenge I have is time and trying to prioritize things. My greatest attribute in regards to my work ethic is that I can be very anal in my production.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
Is this a trick question? I feel I’m one of the best producers/writers because I’m able to do various genres of music.
What are your plans for the near future?
My plan for the future is becoming a well-respected producer in this industry.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
I would like to thank my wife, Carrylle who’s been with me through some very difficult times and has always encouraged me to continue. She’s my greatest fan. I would also like to thank my co-writer for this song Fernanda Noronha.
