Tell us a bit about yourself….

My name is Cassie Holt and I’ve been singing in clubs/bars in Dallas since I was a junior in high school. I’ve been blessed to work with many charities and talented artists over the years. I’m trying to get into songwriting for other artists now, but I will always sing. The only I time I feel like me is on stage.

As you have grown within your talent, what inspires you to create?

People, past relationships, my students, other music that moves me, anything that causes a strong emotion. It is always at the most random times.

How long have you been producing your craft and why did you begin this form of expression?

I’ve been at this for the past decade of my life. I see it as a blessing. I have been singing as soon as I could form words. I had so much in my head and the only way to get it out seemed to be with a guitar in my hands.

What do you ultimately want to accomplish with your talent?

I’d like to reach a larger audience with not only my voice, but my words. I’d love the opportunity to write for major artists. If I’m not creating, I’m not living up to my full potential.

Outside of your artistry, what other interests do you have?

I’m a high school English teacher during the day. And even though I will always be thick, I really enjoy working out. I brainstorm alot while I am in the gym.

What was your first experience with ArtLoveMagic?

I have worked with you on many occasions so it would be hard to remember the first event, but I want to say it was a purple themed show.

Tell us a bit about yourself….

Hi! I’m Micha Goolsby and I am a professional musician, songwriter and teacher living in the Dallas area.

As you have grown within your talent, what inspires you to create?

I guess people (including myself) and the forces that drive them are my main inspiration. Other than that:

1. Great literature
2. Great visual art
3. Great performances (dance, theatre, opera, other types of stage shows)

I would say that nature inspires me, and it does, but it’s more like nature is a place where I find quiet and am able to think about the things that inspire me. Nature is a catalyst, of sorts, for creation.

How long have you been producing your craft and why did you begin this form of expression?

A long, loooong time. 🙂 I started writing songs because my dad did and I thought he was cool, so why not do something cool like him? Over time, I grew to appreciate other songwriters and forms of art.

What do you ultimately want to accomplish with your talent?

I want to take over the WORLD! No, seriously- I’d like to travel the world and tour and play my music as well as play keys and sing with other bands. I also am interested in acting and the stage, so I would like to both write and perform in professional-level theatre (including opera!)

Outside of your artistry, what other interests do you have?

Well, my artistry includes quite a lot other than my singer-songwriter self such as theatre, opera, writing, jazz singing and jazz piano and dancing. Other than those things, I like to cook and I really enjoy painting and drawing. I have a mild interest in politics, especially those that promote a sustainable economy, so I do spend a good bit of my time researching and promoting sustainability and the people that support those ideas.

What was your first experience with ArtLoveMagic?

When I went to an art and coffee at It’s A Grind and met Deb Driscoll and auditioned for Girlshow three years ago!!! Since then, I’ve been very blessed to have met so many talented people and I’m even more blessed to call quite a few of them my friends!

Tell us a bit about yourself….

My birth name is Rocio del Carmen Herrera Aranda. My friends call me Roe. My homebase city is Dallas, Texas. I was born in Ojealos, Jalisco Mexico. I travel a great deal within Mexico and the United States. I travel for family and I travel for Immigrant Punk. I own a personal training business called Unlock Fitness. Exercise and music are my channels of expression.

As you have grown within your talent, what inspires you to create?

I make music for the sake of it.

How long have you been producing your craft and why did you begin this form of expression?

I began writing what I call poetry as far back as I can remember. Although I am not a religious person, I do credit my mother for sparking my love for words by reading the bible to me every night. Poetry naturally led to music.

What do you ultimately want to accomplish with your talent?

There is no ultimate goal for me in music and poetry. It’s the journey of expression that I enjoy and the reason I create.

Outside of your artistry, what other interests do you have?

Exercise, Nature, Cities and being in the audience.

What was your first experience with ArtLoveMagic?

It’s a Grind Open Mic!
