Cheyenne Kimball Interview

Shelia Goss: Are you in the studio now?
Cheyenne Kimball: Iím actually getting ready to go to the studio.

Shelia: How old are you?
Cheyenne: Iím 15. Iíll be 16 in July.

Shelia: How long have you been singing?
Iíve been singing since I was 8 years old. I picked up a guitar and taught myself to play. The day I picked it up, I wrote a song called ďAll I want to DoĒ and the rest [as they say] is history.

Shelia: How did it make you feel to record your first song?
It was exciting. I recorded my first song at about 10. The real first song for my album ďEverything to Lose,Ē I was kind of freaking out. Listening to it was amazing.

Shelia: Sounds like youíve always known you wanted to be a singer correct?
Cheyenne: Yes, since I was 8. I started doing art, then I moved into doing poetry and then writing music. I knew it would be something that I used to express myselfówhich happens to be music.

Shelia: Have you gone on tour yet?
No I havenít. I have a high school tour opening up in April. Itíll be 28 states back to back. Iíll be going to the high schools meeting kids my age and interacting with them.

Shelia: Do you have a tutor or you still going to class?
My mom was teaching me. I started home school at the end of 7th grade. Now I have a real tutor because Iím filming for MTV and they hired a tutor for me.

Shelia: When will the MTV show air?
The MTV show airs May 24th I believe. Itís Reality TV. Itíll be called Cheyenne. The show is about my life and being 15 years old in the music business.

Shelia: How is it being on a reality show?
At first I was nervous, but theyíre great guys. I love MTVís people. They have an awesome crew. I know theyíre not going to try to put me in a bad light--just because they show the real me. Of course my mom & I get into an argument sometimes, but thatís okay.

Shelia: Does being on the show make you nervous?
Iím not nervous at all. I think itís going to be a great show. Iím real excited.

Shelia: Who are some of your favorite singers?
Shanon Hoon from Blind Melon.. I always wanted to meet him, but he passed away in í95. I love Melissa Etheridge. I listen to a lot of things. Musically I was raised on everything. I listen to everybody.

Shelia: Who would you like to work with if given the opportunity to do a duet with someone?
Definitely Steven Tyler from Aerosmith.

Shelia: Besides singing and since youíre doing the reality show for MTV, do you think youíll do any acting?
Maybe much further down the road after Iíve established that Iím a musician. Iím not trying to be like a triple threat right now or anything. I just want to go out and play my music. Iím more of a comedian. I wouldnít mind being on SNL (Saturday Night Live). I think that would be cool.

Shelia: Do you have time to have friends?
I have four really good friends. They are my best friends. I donít have much time to see them, but we talk every night. I have a Verizon phone. Weíre texting all the time and Iím constantly on the computer talking to them.

Shelia: How has your life changed in other ways since your success?
Nothing has really changed for me, except itís starting to get faster, more things going on, more interviews, photo shoots. Itís starting to get busier.

Shelia: When will the album be out?
The album, "The Day Has Come," will be released in July.
