Exclusive Interview: Gia Woods

With successful original singles and features, Gia Woods is taking over the music industry with genuine messages through her music and powerful vocals. The singer has recently released her latest single “Jump the Fence” and plans on releasing more music soon. In an exclusive interview with CelebMix, Woods opened up about goals for this year, songwriting and more.

How did you first get started with music? 

I first got interested when I discovered my sister’s electric guitar that was never played, so I sort of stole it from her room and taught myself from YouTube videos. I got so obsessed with wanting to know how to play it. I also picked up the violin from my elementary school orchestra [and] then I was in choir all the way up to high school. 

What can you tell us about the new single “Jump The Fence” and what it means to you?

“Jump The Fence” is about drowning out the outside noise. It’s so easy to get distracted from what you really want when everyone has an opinion. So it’s about trusting your own intuition over everyone else’s.

How important is the songwriting process for you? What do you want people to take away from your songs? 

The process of writing every song is super important; without it, I mean there would be no song! When people listen to my music, I just want them to enjoy it and hopefully connect to it in some way!

What advice would you give to girls looking to follow a similar career path? 

Take your time, write what’s genuine to you, work harder than you’ve ever worked, and trust your gut.

Troye Sivan because I love his music!

What has been a challenge you have faced thus far in the industry? 

It’s such a fast-paced and competitive industry, so reminding myself to stay positive and patient has definitely helped!

So much new music that I’m really excited about and more music videos! I’ll be releasing new material almost every month, so definitely stay tuned for more!
