CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, WHO IS KACEY FIFIELD IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
I am an entertainer and a high school student. I believe in kindness and hard work. I lead by example. I am a loyal friend and have a good sense of humor ☺
GROWING UP, DID YOU ALWAYS WANT TO BE A MUSICIAN? CAN YOU RECALL YOUR EARLIEST MUSICAL MEMORY?
I have always loved singing and entertaining my family! As a young child, I enjoyed putting on one-woman musicals at all of her family gatherings and officially began voice lessons around age 10. Since then, I’ve released 10+ original singles!
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE SO FAR IN YOUR ACTING CAREER?
It hasn’t been smooth as acting is a very competitive industry. There are a lot of rejections in the audition process, so it can sometimes be a struggle to stay positive. But I really love what I do and take each experience as an opportunity to learn and grow.
I ALWAYS LIKE TO ASK ARTISTS ABOUT WHERE THEY CAME FROM AND HOW THAT HOMETOWN HAS INFLUENCED THEM AS AN ARTIST NOW. SO HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR HOME HAS AFFECTED YOU AND YOUR MUSIC TODAY?
I grew up in Chicago and moved to Los Angeles when I was 8 years old. I love travelling back to see my family and friends. Since now I lived here in LA for almost half of my life, this feels more like home. However, both cities equally influence me musically since I have so many great memories from my childhood in Chicago.
ON YOUR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT, WE CAN SEE MANY POSTS DEDICATED TO YOUR TRAVELS. ARE YOUR TRAVELS SOURCES OF INSPIRATION FOR THIS MUSICAL PROJECT?
I love traveling and learning about other cities and countries. I take inspiration from all of my adventures and experiences in life, so travel is definitely a part of my musical inspiration! I also love filming vlogs for my YouTube channel. Anytime I visit a new city, I film a vlog and share my experiences with my fans.
AM CURIOUS TO KNOW IF YOU FIND THAT YOU ENJOY SINGING OR ACTING MORE? OR DO YOU ENJOY DOING THEM ALL EQUALLY? HOW WOULD YOU SAY THAT THEY ALL COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER?
I love both equally! They’re both incredible creative outlets that allow me to express myself! Acting allows me to explore a character and put myself in another person’s shoes and singing, lets me put my innermost thoughts to music.
WHAT DO YOU HOPE YOUR FANS TAKE AWAY FROM YOUR MUSIC? DO YOU FIND THAT A LOT OF YOUR MUSIC HAS A GREATER MEANING BEHIND IT?
I believe that kindness matters and little by little, we can make our world better, which I bring across in my music. I include deeper meaning in all of my songs in order to inspire my listeners and relate to their own experiences as well.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE ABOUT YOURSELF OR YOUR MUSIC WITH OUR READERS?
I am working on a couple of new songs so follow me on Spotify and Instagram @kaceyfifield for updates!
