don't let anyone define you

Sizzy Rocket

Sizzy Rocket is the cool best friend you wish you had growing up — the one who doused herself in glitter and moved to New York to start a punk band. And that’s exactly what she did, along with booking her own shows at underground clubs and releasing secret songs via Dropbox to her rabid Twitter following. During her time in New York, Sizzy worked with top tier producers which led to a deal with UMPG and songwriting cuts with all the cool girls of pop, from Noah Cyrus to Bea Miller to Hey Violet.
When she’s not trading fan mail with her cult, Sizzy is either building her own independent record label, designing and packaging her own merch, or booking her own tours. Sizzy challenges what it means to be a pop artist in 2020 with her DIY approach, openly queer and unapologetic lyricism, and her genre-blending musicality that takes influence from punk, rock, pop and beyond.

In this article, we chat with Sizzy Rocket and ask her a few questions about her journey.

Your journey has been anything but ordinary. What’s the best advice you’ve received along the way?
The best advice I’ve ever received was from Jessica Rivera. She gave me my first publishing deal and was my first real believer. She told me to put blinders on, keep my head down, and focus on the work!

Is there a message that you think every woman should hear?
I think every woman should know that it’s okay to be loud, passionate, and expressive! So often we are expected to be quiet and perfect and well-behaved, but I truly think that’s a false narrative.

Have you always had confidence in yourself?
Definitely not — confidence is something that I had to work really hard to achieve. Figuring out how to love yourself and changing your internal dialogue isn’t easy, but with strength and patience, I realized that I get to define myself and my confidence.

What would you say to 16-year-old you?
I would say… you’re smart, beautiful, talented, and you can do anything – don’t let anyone define you, grrrl!

What is your most favorite childhood memory?
My favorite childhood memory is being on stage for the first time. I was 7-years-old and immediately fell in love with it.

Besides your career, what do you want people to know about you?
I want people to know that my love for art and the art world extends beyond my career. My truest work of art is the way I live my life.

As time goes on, how would you like to be remembered?
I want to be remembered as a legend.

 

What do you love most about yourself?
I love how determined I am. Once I set my mind to something, I know it’s going to get done!

Are you still learning who you are?
I don’t think we ever stop learning who we are.

What gets you up in the morning?
Art, writing songs, and creating new work gets me out of bed every morning. Although, I have to admit, sometimes I’ll stay in bed and work from there!!

Is there anyone that helps keep you motivated throughout your journey?
I truly have the best team in the world. They keep me motivated and focused everyday!
