Breakaway Daily Interview with Akua Allrich


BREAKAWAY DAILY: When did you first
realize that you wanted to pursue music professionally? 


It’s funny. I waited about seven or eight years after graduating with my
BFA to really consider singing professionally. The ban of smoking in clubs had
a lot to do with my decision. But, most importantly, I had started my family
with my hugely supportive husband, and he pushed me to pursue my passion as a
performing musician. When I graduated I was young and I felt like the music
business was a bit too intimidating for me to navigate at that time.
