Masha Interview – The Contradiction

Masha Interview

Masha describes herself as a contradiction: someone who can purr but would rather roar.  Her covers on YouTube have gained over two million hits and a dedicated following. She covered Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” for the Lifetime’s Witches of East End commercial (check out our post here) and we were lucky to score an interview with her right after the debut of her new album.

First and foremost, how would you describe your music?
It’s rock n roll, pure livid happiness.

I know you have done a lot of covers of pop songs that can be seen on your YouTube Channel, how did it feel to record your own songs for your new EP, Stupid, Stupid Dreams?
A complete blessing. I have never been happier than when I was making Stupid, Stupid Dreams. I had panic attacks from being so overwhelmed, in a good way of course.

You are a self described bad ass but I saw on your Twitter that you were excited for the re-release of the Little Mermaid, did you buy it?
I haven’t, but thanks for the reminder! Old school Disney movies will always be my favorite.

So far, what would you say has been the most interesting or craziest thing to happen to you during your musical experiences?
Being surrounded by so much greatness while recording the EP. Blackbird Studios in Nashville is a magical place. Seeing a 36 person gospel choir sing to my song “Amen” was incredible. Quite a humbling experience to say the least.

Are you planning on releasing a full version of the Come as You Are cover in the Witches of East End commercial?

Since we are commercial biased site, I have to ask, if you could have your song featured in any commercial for any product, what would it be and why?
Probably some whiskey commercial. Maybe Jack Daniels, or Makers Mark. I’m a whiskey kinda girl, and could totally see “Ugly” being played during a bar fight.

Now that Stupid, Stupid Dreams was released on October 22nd, what can we expect next from you?
More music, more shows. That’s about all I know.
