The Interview EX: With all the talent surrounding you including your father I suppose your musical talents come naturally but did you take any professional training for vocals or playing guitar? FA: Actually I have had no formal vocal lessons nor have I taken guitar lessons. I thank my father for my voice (at least that is where I believe I get it from) and taught myself how to play the guitar as I did the piano. EX: How much input did you have when creating music and lyrics in your first album and in this current one? FA: The first album UNDENIABLE was an experience that I will never forget. I did have some input into the song choice but it was driven mostly by my manager at the time. I had some industry leading producers and song writers on it and it was just crazy to be part of it. I had more input and control on my current album. If I did not like the way the music was produced, I asked to change it. I was able to write lyrics for some of the remake songs. I felt like I truly owned the process. 14 Entrigue Magazine | November 2012
