Lux livid musicLux Livid interview.

As I anxiously waited at the local coffee shop for singer/songwriter Lux Livid’s arrival, I wasn’t sure what to expect. As Lux walked through the doors, she immediately commanded the attention of everyone in the room.  At this point… yes, I was officially intimidated.

She showed up a fashionably 20 minutes late looking like batman’s new girl friend, wearing high heels, tight latex pants and a top that screamed of self-confidence. I not really a fashion expert but I would describe her look as a cross between Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga.

She orders a double espresso, throws herself down in a chair saying “Let’s do this”.

I quickly compose myself, physically startled by her stunning beauty and forwardness, and asked her the first question:

At what point in life did you realize being a singer/songwriter was what you wanted to do?

LL: I have always loved music.  I don’t think I ever went through the “I wanna be a fireman” phase.  I knew this was going to be my future somehow.

 What’s the best time of day for you to do your writing?

LL: I’m like a vampire.   I work at night.  I’m lucky to have very patient and/or deaf neighbors.

Do you come up with the lyrics or the song title first?

LL: I don’t have rules about that.  When I first started writing songs, I would write out the lyrics first, like a poem.  Sometimes I’ll start with a concept and sometimes I’ll start with the music.   It really just depends.

Where does your inspiration come from?

LL: Breakups, horror movies, general mishaps, revenge and nightmares.  Oh, and Perez Hilton.

How much truth and real life experience goes into your writing?

LL: I would say everything stems from something that is true.

If you could collaborate with any artist who would it be?

LL: That’s a tough one, does it have to be just one?  I guess if I had to choose one it would be Barney the dinosaur.  Yup.  That would be an interesting mix.

Are you aware of troll face?

LL: I’m a little embarrassed to say that I don’t know who that is. Is that bad?
