KOBRA AND THE LOTUS vocalist Brittany "Kobra" Paige is featured in a new profile interview with Metal Divas. An excerpt is available below:
Metal Divas: In your opinion, what is the essence of music in general?
Kobra: "Music is there to evoke thoughts and emotions and strengthen us. Whether it is toward a place of happiness, inspiration, anger, sadness, or reminiscence, it opens and guides us to a place of feeling; a bigger 'inner' place, than we were in before hearing it. Music is the sound of our life and aspirations."
Metal Divas: What is the most memorable moment of your career so far?
Kobra: "Every part of this career has been memorable because it has taken so much hard work to achieve even one baby step forward. One of my most favorite moments was the first time we saw people singing our music right along with us at a show. It was the first time I really realized people were paying attention."
