Recently we had the opportunity to speak with Kristyn from DaCav5. Read up on a lot of interesting things you may not have known about DaCav5 and Kristyn.
Hi Kristyn! As this is your first interview with MaxMuzik, let’s start off with a little background about DaCav5 and yourself. How did you get into music?
Kristyn: Dacav5 is made up of 5 members – Myself, Brian, Benofficial, Mikey P and Mike. We all come from very different walks of life, and I think that shows and is what makes us so different. We each have a different opinion on how something should sound, or how something should be said. Our sound is very much pop music with an edge. We are what you would typically listen to before the party, at the party and at the after party! lol
I have been in the group for a little over 3 years now. I first met Mikey P through a friend. I then recorded a song with him and Brian at the same time they were going through some group changes. DaCav5 used to be a 5 member male group. So, everything just kind of worked itself out, and before you know it, I was the first lady of DaCav5! As for getting into music all together, it’s something I’ve always loved. I got my first Karaoke machine very early on, and have been singing ever since! 🙂
For our readers who’ve never heard your music, explain your sound in 5 words.
Kristyn: I’d say ..Pop…Dance.. Eclectic.. Spontaneous.. Edgy
Can you offer insight into some of your musical inspirations?
Kristyn: Right now, Adele and Jessie J are two huge inspirations in my life. Growing up it was definitely Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey. Other than that, life itself is very inspiring. Life is tough, but it’s also beautiful. So you have your ups you can write about and your downs.
Earlier this year, you released the music video for “Dirty Style”. What was that experience like for you?
Kristyn: For me, that experience was AWESOME! Yeah, they’re long days, but it’s so worth it! It is def fun making the video and having your friends involved, but the best part about the whole process is seeing the end result! 🙂 I cannot wait to make another video!
The video has since received over 600K views. What was your reaction/thought when you saw it pass half a million?
Kristyn: WOW! You know, YouTube is amazing! That site has made many people’s dreams come true. It’s truly amazing because it helps our fans that are so far away be able to keep up with what we’re doing. DaCav5 has great loyal fans, and it’s because of them why we have 600,000 views!
If you could open up for an artist right now, who would it be and why?
Kristyn: I am sure all five of us would have very different answers for this one. However, my choice would have to be LMFAO – because I know the show and after party would by CRAZY!
Speaking of shows, what are you touring plans for the rest of the year?
Kristyn: We actually just got back from doing a show at Blush in Vegas. Vegas = Amazing! As of now, we are doing shows but not touring. Although, class is back in session so maybe we could set up a college tour or something. That would be epic!
What artists would fans be surprised to find on your iPod?
Kristyn: I think fans would be most shocked to find bands like A Day To Remember, Four Years Strong, The Higher, All Time Low, The Get Up Kids, Mayday Parade and The Morning Of. I like a lot of Pop Punk/Hardcore music.
Any final thoughts or parting words?
Kristyn: Yes. You can now get “Dirty Style” on iTunes! 🙂
