Song writer and artist Josephine Relli made her de­but Red Car­pet Run­way ap­per­ance for the 62nd an­nual Grammy Awards cer­e­mony, hosted by Alicia Keys. She says her in­ter­view was amaz­ing! Ev­ery­thing about it was awe­some. DREAM TEEN Mag­a­zine had the op­por­tu­nity to in­ter­view Relli. At 18-years of age, Relli is en­joy­ing her ca­reer in Los An­ge­les as she con­tin­ues to de­velop her mu­sic.

Born in Spokane, at the early age of 13 is when she ini­tially be­gan to delve deeply into mu­sic. Be­ing home­schooled for much of her high-school years al­lowed her to put a fo­cus on learn­ing and nav­i­gat­ing the mu­sic in­dus­try.

She re­leased her first al­bum in 2016. She con­tin­ues to fur­ther pur­sue the arts and the in­dus­try. Her new project Slow Down/Fall­ing - sin­gle dropped Fe­bru­ary 2, 2020.

Relli is pas­sion­ate about fash­ion and beauty, and hopes to launch her own lines in makeup, fash­ion and skin­care in the near fu­ture. She’s also a strong sup­porter of phil­an­thropic en­deav­ors, in­clud­ing LGBTQ+ rights, an­i­mal adop­tion and res­cue, and breast cancer re­search – to name a few.

Relli’s in­spi­ra­tions are rooted in old-school icons like Ray Charles, Frank Si­na­tra, Dean Martin, Sam Cooke, and Jackie. She also loves such con­tem­po­raries as Sam Smith, and Tay­lor Swift. DTM
