We brought you the hot Annie Rise video, now here’s the Life of a Rock Star™ Annie Rise interview!
Q: Can you tell us a little about how and where you grew up and what your family is like?
A: I grew up in a small town in Ukraine in an ordinary family. My parents were not connected with music at all. But at 7 years old, I felt like I wanted to play the piano and my mum took me to music school. From that point my career get started!
I was quite a star in my native town. I was a lead singer in choir, I always sang in concerts at school, and in different children’s singing contests. I also took part in a folk band.
I started writing poems at that time. After finishing school I wanted to continue my education in music but my parents didn’t see the value of me being in show business. I said to myself, “If the music is really my way to go I would take that way sooner or later.”
After acquiring 2 higher education degrees and being successful in modeling, I started in February of 2011 to work in cooperation with the progressive music label Firework Sound, (also known for working with famous dance group Kazaky).

A: I play the piano, write lyrics and music for myself but also work with the best musicians and song writers to have the best quality of songs.
Q: What inspires you?
A: The world around is enough to be inspired. But most of all people who provoke your imagination and intensify feelings…
Q: Where have you traveled and / or lived?
A: I travel a lot. London, LA, Moscow, and Ukraine are my most frequent destinations, but I love to travel without special purposes just for inspiration and relaxation. The last trips that most amazed me were Spain, Tuscany and Venice.
Q: Do you have a favorite book?
A: It always changes.
Q: How many languages (and which) do you speak?
A: English, Russian , Ukrainian, and a little bit of French.
Q: Annie, we love your style! Who fashioned you for the video? Can you tell us specifically what brand(s) you are wearing?
A: I had an amazing stylist who created the costumes for the video. I don’t have special brands to wear. It does not depend on the name of the brand but on quality and how it looks on me.
Q: If you have a day off or a day with free time, what do you like to do? What is your favorite way to spend your free time?
A: I would spend it outdoor with my parents, relatives and close friends whom I love and who feel a lack of my attention.
