“All In My Head” is an exciting and catchy EP that will make you want to dance. It has ear-pleasing vocals, loud drums, electric bass, and electro-pop sounds. Additionally, Ciera’s EP features her single, “What You Want” which opens with a post-relationship narrative flashing back to her past with people she thought she loved the most.

“How could you talk about me behind my back like we were nothing? Can you stop listening to everyone who don’t know themselves?” Ciera sings in her single, “What You Want”. Ciera sings about being hurt, betrayed, and confused. She’s ready for something new in life but still reflecting on her past and the places she used to love.

In addition to her EP, Ciera will be performing in a few states across the country this summer. To find out more about her music, merch, and performances click here.

My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
