music insauga: Junia-T

For our readers who have never heard your music, explain your sound in 140 characters:

My sound is what I'd like to call "Forever Music". It's a blend of the old and the new with the intention of being timeless music. I don't make music based on what's popular or trending. I create what feels right.

Ten years from now musically you'll be...

I will be an influencer and a staple in the history of music.


If you could go open up for any artist on tour right now who would it be?

I would love to go on tour with the Roots simply for their traditional approach to music. They have a solid band and their emcee is one of the greatest.


So, what's your favourite thing to do when you aren't doing your music?

Spend time with my daughter or SLEEEP!!!


What is your Mississauga connection?

Born & Raised in Sauga.


What's your favourite place in Mississauga to perform and why?

Celebration Square is my favorite place because it's appropriate for where I'm headed... Big stages.

Where do you draw inspiration from when creating music and what's your favourite part about the process?

I draw my inspiration from a lot of old music. I dig in the crates to stay inspired.


Who are your favourite musicians? Why?

J Dilla is one of my favs because he broke the rules every time he created. He even created a new sound in Hip-hop that still lives today. Without his contribution my style would be very different.


What are five things your band can't live without?

1. Loyalty

2. Love

3. Natural Mystic

4. Backwoods

5. Appleton Rum


What's the coolest gig you ever did? Why?

Coolest gig I've ever done was my first show at Celebration Square. I've been active in the industry for years and have packed venues in Toronto and had never done a show in my home town. It felt good to rock a show with 5000 people for my first show at home.
