SO. What is your Name? where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?
DT. Dionny Tabbarez, born in the Dominican Republic. I Started singing in church, my grandmother took me as a very young boy and I started to sing with the church choir.
SO. Who and/or what inspires you to create?
DT. Life is a major part of my inspiration, the experience of it, the moments that come and go, so I try to capture it all through my songs.
SO. How would you describe your sound?
DT. My sound is as gentle as an ocean wave on a clear blue sky, I’m also influenced by all types of music, hip hop, classical, Latin & rock.
SO. What is your creative process like?
DT. The songs come to me in various melodies, out of nowhere, I will hear a melody and start humming, I usually record it on my phone, before I used to carry a small tape recorder and then would proceed to work on the words later. otherwise, I would lose that melody and would never come back.
SO. What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
DT. That’s a tough one, so many? Kenney Chesney, would love a duet with Carrie Underwood, Jimmy Allen, Eric Church & Luke Combs.
SO. What is one message you would give to your supporters?
DT. Just to give me the opportunity to make my music, to listen to it and hopefully I can win them over as fans and to join me on this beautiful musical journey.
SO. What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?
DT. I’m a great cook, super handy and my wife says I give great massages.
SO. What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
DT. I will probably be doing what I do now, being a great husband and father to my two beautiful girls, working in Logistics and living life to the fullest, none of that changes, music is a compliment to my already beautiful life, it’s the icing on the cake.
SO. Who are some artists/people you admire and why?
DT. As far as artist Dolly Parton, she has done it all, great singer songwriter business savvy. A wonderful giver to charity and helping others and what a career, still going strong, a true legend. People I admire have to be my mother and my beautiful wife, my mother being a single mom, raising two boys in a foreign country working sometimes even on weekends to provide a better life for me. My wife for supporting my dreams and being my best friend and for helping to raise our wonderful girls, without her none of this would be possible, she’s my rock.
The best advice I got was from my mother. She would always tell me as a young child, you were not born to be a seed, you are always growing.When asked What is the best advice you’ve been given?
SO. If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
DT. I would not change a thing, I feel that the industry is at a good place, independent artists like myself can create and share our music more than ever. The music industry is at a good place and it will continue to adapt to the times.
SO. What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself next year?
DT. Next for me is to continue to putting music out, working on my next single and hoping to have the LP done within a year or so, I’m really excited about the future and can’t wait to share all my music.
SO. What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you?
