Interview with Ignite:  Biography

My name is Carol-anne I am from Cape
Town, South Africa and I sign my work under the artist name Ignite. I find inspiration in many places and have traveled to Durban, Namibia and Johannesburg which has influenced my creative style and process. I create art because I want to share with other people. I specialize in writing vocals with my three octave voice range and I focus on Christian contemporary radio. I love doing gigs and recording, as well as, creating music videos for my new releases. My art style is Jazz/Rock with some flavoring of pop music. I am motivated by my producer in Georgia where we co-write and my fans! They keep me going especially when they come along on the journey with me. I’ve been singing from the time I was 8 years old and not too much later I wrote my first song at 11 years old. My favorite artists are Lauren Daigle and Tanita Tikaram. Lauren has nice jazzy vocals and Tanita Tikaram has darker, timber vocals. Just about the same as my range! I connect with the art community by Offering my availability for session work, playing at festivals, weddings and restaurants. I also have led many worship teams. My video “Set Our Hearts On Fire” is featured on musicforchrist.net. and write away magazine My work has shown at different events around Cape Town, on YouTube, Glacer FM global radio station, College underground global radio on their country/rock blog, jango.com, CUFM Global and ModiFM also kenzieg music streamed from Chicago, also featured on Rising Star FM.
Overall when people see my work, I hope they will be touched emotionally, as I write and sing from an emotional place.

Have you always been interested in music? What is your story
and how did you start making music?

Yes from a little girl of 8yrs old I taught myself how to play guitar and wrote my first song call “Schools Out” at 11yrs old. I come from a musical family, my mom was a opera singer and my Dad, brothers and sister all played guitar my grandad played the banjo. My youngest brother is a singer/songwriter like myself, I first started singing at the Baxter theater at 8 yrs old then moved onto singing jazz in restaurants after which I progressed to singing in various bands from alternative to rock/ pop then to crossover African, I recorded my first single 11 yrs ago, releasing an album this year.

What are you working on now? Any future releases we can look forward to?

What Is Your Ultimate Goal In The Music Industry?
Been a fulltime musician

What Has Been The Biggest Challenge In Your Career Thus Far?
I had covid pneumonia in July 2020 only had 30% capacity from too much fluid in my lungs, doctors could not do anything to help me I honestly thought that was the end of my music career as it was a struggle just to try and take in a breath, I was radically healed

How do you go about writing a song? Do you have a melody in
your head and then write the other music for it or what’s Your typical
songwriting process?

Melody and lyrics come to me spontaneously, I write prophetically from the Lords heart it flows out of the deepest part of my heart

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
There are so many artists releasing you have to be unique and stand out from the crowd, on the other hand it’s been amazing. Previously it was near impossible for an artist from Africa to get their music heard in America, now many artists collab online from around the world, America is my 2nd home my music hub
