Nagamag:
Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Isabel Dumaa:
The umbrella genre for my music is pop, but I would define it as indie pop or alt-pop with little elements of folk and R&B!


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Isabel Dumaa:
I have been singing since practically before I could talk, and began songwriting at a young age as well. I took singing lessons throughout my childhood, and begged my parents for guitar and piano lessons so I could accompany myself and start playing live. Since day 1 I have always wanted to be a singer and pursue music. After graduating High School I moved down to LA to do music full time, and feel so grateful I get to be working every day at something I love so dearly.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Isabel Dumaa:
It is difficult to pinpoint my very first connection to my love of music, but there is one early memory that sticks out. I was about 5 years old when my cousin played me You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift, and I have never fallen in love with a song quicker. It immediately became my favorite song and was pretty much all I listened to for about a year. My parents bought me my first iPod shuffle about a year later and all I had on it was You Belong With Me and 4 other songs from Fearless all of which I listened to on repeat. Taylor Swift has been a huge inspiration for me growing up and throughout my career and that was where my love for her began.


Nagamag:
What would be your dream venue to play?

Isabel Dumaa:
I was raised right in the heart of San Francisco and over the years attended many concerts and shows all over the city. Every show I went to I couldn't help but picture myself on the stage someday getting to sing in my home city. Every year "Outside Lands Festival" is held in Golden Gate Park and pretty much every young person in the bay area is there. It is essentially the coachella of NorCal. Outside Lands is such a vivid part of my growing up and every year I went I couldn't help but dream and picture myself on one of those stages, getting to play for all the people standing where I stood all those times. So a definite dream venue would be to be able to headline at Outside Lands!


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Isabel Dumaa:
"Kiss Of Venus" Paul McCartney and Dominic Fike


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?

Isabel Dumaa:
"The Walls Are Way Too Thin" Holly Humberstone

Nell Widmer
Interview


Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Nell Widmer:
My music style is very electronic, with house and RnB influences.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Nell Widmer:
First of all, you have to know that I learned to sing alone, so since I was 9 years old I've been singing. I went on but this time I shared videos of covers of artists I liked a lot. And in 2018 I was contacted following my recordings on Soundcloud, and that was the beginning of writing in English and creating melodies. Since then, I released my EP 2 years later so in 2020 to be able to show all the different colors of my voice.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Nell Widmer:
The first connection with music dates back to my early childhood. I have always been rocked by the Black Eyed Peas and Michael Jackson and the very first time I sang was to music by Michael when I was 2 years old. So I think it's thanks to this musical culture that I've built up which has given me this desire to create and write.


Nagamag:
Most artists have a favorite song from a different music genre than the one they are producing music for... Which is yours?

Nell Widmer:
Valentino Khan "Better"


Nagamag:
