When it comes to rising to the top of the music industry, Alyssa “E11evn” Pledger has a few words of wisdom: “Believe in yourself and all that you are.” “Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.” This sentiment, along with her unique blend of R&B and EDM and her powerful stage presence, has propelled E11evn to the forefront of the music scene.
E11evn’s music is like listening to a fictional characterization of non-fictional people and events. Her goal is to evoke or elicit every form of human emotion in her audience so that the stories she tells, whether one or many, are relatable. She particularly favors making music for the ladies, as she believes that often, they need to know that they are not alone in their experiences.
One of the key strategies E11evn employs to rise towards self-actualization as a creative is her use of manifestation. The number 11 is her angel number, and it holds a special significance for her. The more she started doing music, the more she saw her angel number, and her inner circle knows how important those numbers and the power of manifestation are to her. Another strategy E11evn uses is to view music as a form of group therapy. Through her music, she wants to let people know that they aren’t the only ones going through real-life problems. E11evn’s alter ego, the “Ghetto Hippie,” displays herself as a very strong, passionate, leading and feminist woman. However, deep down, E11evn is a very delicate, soft-spoken individual.
E11evn’s creative process is similar to building a house. She starts by identifying the tone or mood she wants for a piece and then builds on that, adding appropriate instruments, melodies, and finally words. She likes to go into the studio with something already ready in her head, but if she doesn’t, she writes while the engineer prepares the beat. E11evn believes that what makes her different is that she is turning her truth into art and is bold enough to vent through her music to anyone who will listen. She feels that if she successfully delivers on her goal as an artist—to not just write a song but to elicit emotion—she’ll stay ahead of the crowd.
E11evn is a firm believer in the power of truth, and her music is simply that. She believes that the aspects that someone needs to be successful in the music industry are sacrifice, dedication, patience, consistency, faith, and just believing that this is for you. She points out that everyone wants to be heard or seen, and it’s a big competition. There are a lot of people who are good but will never be heard, and there are a lot of people who aren’t so good but will always be heard because of the connections they have.
E11evn’s rise to the top of the music industry is a testament to her hard work, dedication, and belief in herself. Her unique blend of R&B and EDM, along with her powerful stage presence and relatable lyrics, has made her one of the most sought-after artists in the industry today. She believes that, with the right mindset and strategies, anyone can rise to the global stage and achieve self-actualization.
