Fresh off the release of Akosia’s debut EP ‘Black Diamond’, the multi-disciplinary mega-talent appeared on Happy to talk about his creative process.
A Melbourne-based actress and singer-songwriter, Akosia isn’t afraid to step out of her comfort zone. in fact, it seems to be the prerequisite that has led her to experiment with art on her own; first as a model, then as an actress and finally as a musician.
Shated for her father’s love for Satchmo, BB King and Miles Davis, and centered on her mother’s spiritual heartbeat, Akosia has walked a steady, solid path towards what moves her, and luckily for us right now, her music.
Akosia’s music takes listeners on an eclectic journey of melodic harmonies and meaningful storytelling that explores the reality of life and love.
We had a chat with her about life, her role in Marvel’s Thor, love and thunderconquering anxieties, new music, her ability to get great producers on board, and the holistic spiritual approach that is embedded in everything she applies.
Akosia debut EP black diamond is out now, and their beautiful first single, The Weekend, with an amazing video to match.
