Where are you based now?
I am based out of Los Angeles, California.
What is your artist name? What is your real name, and how did you get your artist name?
Peace Galaxy is my artist/producer name. My real name is Angela Hunter. I got my artist name because I’m really intrigued by outer space and everything involved with it, and I’m about good/peace vibes.
At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music?
I decided to pursue a career in music when it felt like purpose. At that moment, I just knew that music was always going to be a part of me. Music has really always been a part of me and pulls me constantly. I decided to take it seriously and develop my skills and sound and be my absolute best.
Has your upbringing played a role in shaping who you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?
I do not think my upbringing played a role in defining my sound. But, my upbringing has shaped me into who I am today. I was raised with certain morals and values that I still carry with me today. I feel like you have to live by some code or morals and strive to be the best version of yourself.
How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?
I always say my sound is like the female version of Pharrell mixed with my unique, spaced out futuristic dopeness. I’m versatile with my production. I’ll go from Trap to RnB to K-Pop to AfroBeat (Caribbean) sounds, sometimes mixing them all in the same track.
What ultimately inspired you to dedicate yourself to a music career?
I would say the calling ultimately inspired me to dedicate myself to a music career. I want to outdo myself and build my skills. When I start to surprise myself with my skills and sound, that’s what keeps me inspired to stay dedicated to the music.
What is one reason you are passionate about music, and what inspires you?
The main reason I am passionate about music is the feeling I get from the sounds I create. I can get inspiration from anywhere. It can be from heartbreak, or it could be from the feeling of love. I also get inspiration from the producers I admire and respect, or something that randomly occurs.
Do you have any hobbies outside of music? What do you do to stay creative?
I have no hobbies outside of music lol... I work so hard. If I had to pick a hobby, it would be stargazing. To stay creative, I perfect my production of different genres. I like to create and listen to the best.
Who are some of your main musical influences?
Some of my main musical influences are Pharrell, Timbaland, Prince, 40, Kanye West, Missy Elliot, and Quincy Jones.
What are some of your music career goals for the future?
I have really big career goals for the future. My goal is to win a few grammy’s and become a multi-platinum producer and have a successful record label with successful artists signed to the label GLXY7 Ent.
Tell us about the project that you are promoting. What is it about? Is it a single or an EP? Also, what is the name of the last project you released?
The project that I’m currently promoting is Sample Life Vol. 1. It’s a mixtape with 7 tracks. It’s hip hop with heavy sample beats.
What has the response been like to that project?
The response has been great, and we are pushing it to spread more awareness of the project.
What message do you hope fans take away from your music?
The most important message that I hope the fans take away from the music is to just love strongly and cultivate your free-ness, and just being the best version of yourself unapologetically.
