“I just want people to know who I am, an artist beyond the medium of a song, my art is in my music and my music is in my art...to understand me you need to understand both”. It is the merge between art and music that makes her stand out from other artists. Pastele is not only a singer and songwriter, but also an art student attending one of New York's most influential art schools. On January 12, 2012 at Studio 9G, overlooking the High Line, Pastele shares with us her life, songs and art.
Raised in New Jersey, Pastele has been lighting the stage on fire from the young age of six. Inspired by acts such as the Spice Girls, P!nk, Britney Spears. She was an established songwriter at a young age being part of the pop girl group trio "Candy Coated Chaos", having songs debut on MTV shows such as "The Hills", "The City", and "Jersey Shore". It wasn't until the group broke up that she really had the creative freedom to be herself and write songs of her own liking. "It's hard to be a piece of a puzzle and be an artist at the same time. Really, where is the beauty in that?".
Pastele currently describes her sound as a mash up of Gwen Stefani, Jessie J, and Pink... Studying under the guidance of vocal coach Don Lawrence (vocal coach of Lady Gaga & Christina Aguilera), Pastele has defined a voice that will be recognizable among all other top female artists on the airwaves. Working with multiple producers on her debut records, she has stirred excitement among a 'new breed' of talent in the industry. “I'm here to paint a picture... I want every type of artist to know we have a special gift of moving people, the differences we can make are endless..."
