Boston Hip-Rocker PFEVA

PFEVA Rock of Boston is doing her part to bring Hip-Rock back to the forefront of the music world!!!  With her music recently featured on Canada’s CTV “The Listener” television series, she has begun the journey that every hopeful artist wishes to make…having millions of fans hear and enjoy their music creations.  I had an opportunity to interview this busy artist whose is seeing a larger demand for her featured presence on projects ranging from heavy metal to Hip Hop and requests for more submissions for television.  I felt blessed to get this time with PFEVA so check out this wildfire artist and I highly recommend you not miss out on some great music on her website or her app!


Who are your musical influences and why?

I have a wide range of musical influences from rock to r&b to pop, covering most of the 80’s to early 90’s. Such acts as Guns and Roses, Journey, Def Leppard, RUN-DMC, Queen Latifah, Pat Benatar, Gap Band, Prince and Stevie Nicks. Each artist or group brought passion, talent and uniqueness.  The artist that had the most influence over me was the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Beyond Michael being a great singer and a phenomenal entertainer he was capable of bridging the gap between race and music, with a background such as mind that really appealed to me. Tina Turner also had an influence on me, she delivered a raw powerful sound that commanded your attention and there was no way around it but to listen. She is black rock n’ soul.

When did you know you wanted to be a musician/artist? 

Well I knew I always wanted to be in the entertainment field. I started out dancing as a kid and that lasted off and on thorough out high school. It wasn’t until my first year in the Navy did I realize rapping was something I had a knack for.

What prompted you to venture into Hip-Rock?

I’ve always had a love for hip-hop and rock music, but the light bulb went off when I heard the last two minutes of RUN-DMC”s song Rock Box. The sounds of just the hard hitting beat laced with a guitar solo opened my mind to the genre, but of course at that time the term “hip-rock” hadn’t existed. Mixing these two genres for me felt very natural, almost like the piece to a missing puzzle. Thanks Rick Rubin

What is your favorite part of performing?

The adrenaline rush I get from seeing the fans getting involved in the show. Or when I get a crowd that is not familiar with my music but quickly becomes familiar with the song mid-way through performing it, shouting out the chorus along with me, as if they knew it all along….the best feeling!!!

What can your fans expect on the album you are currently creating?

This being my self-titled, debut album, fans can expect A TRUE introduction of Pfeva.

Fans will get a taste of what real Hip-Rock laced with soul is, very high-energy and profound.

Where is the one place in the world you would love to perform at and why?

I would have to say in Asia, I’ve always wanted to perform in Japan; the hip-hop culture is big there. I’ve started to teach myself some basic Japanese, preparing myself for the big day. I’ve also just been made aware there is a huge hip-rock culture in Indonesia. I guess need to learn to speak Indonesian as well ha-ha

Tell us about the best part of what you do?

The creative process is the best part of what I do, challenging myself each and every time is how I am able to bring such a diverse sound and style to my listeners.

What do you think of today’s musical trends?

I’ve grown to appreciate the term “back in the day” Things are different from when I was growing up, I miss the anticipation of seeing the next greatest hip-hop album covers.  Such as classic covers of RUN DMC, LL COOL, Beastie Boys and the list goes on.  Now that technology has changed and music is primarily downloaded, you miss out on the BIG piece of artwork that reflects the story the artist is trying to convey in their music. The upside in this wonderful world of technology is independent artist are able to sell their own music without sharing a big piece of the pie with the labels.

Any advice for upcoming artists?  

My only and most important advice would be educate yourself as much as you can about the music business and surround yourself with like-minded individuals. Everyone in your camp must have your best interest at heart and be thirsty for your success, but not crave for it, because this will only create greed.

Blogging Awards

As I grow into this thing called blogging, I continuously find myself being welcomed into the “blog-fold” by new and exciting people who are reaching out with encouragement and inspiration to continue on the my new path!  It is humbling to “meet” so many people in the blogging community who take the time out to lend a helping hand, provide suggestions and in the broadest sense of global family, blanket newbies like myself with an overwhelming sense of security as we share ourselves.  With that said, I would like to thank Dolly of for nominating me for the “Liebster Award”!
