Samantha Gangal might be known for her acting and modeling. She’s proving she is a multi-hyphenated talent that has so much to share with the world in her music.

Gangal was able to talk with host Chae’ Jones during a Zoom interview about her newest single My Own Prison, her creative process from writing to the music video, artists that inspire her, and a surprising fact that her fans will be surprised to learn about her.

When asked what was the inspiration behind creating her new single, Gangal said, “Really it was just over the years hearing the struggle that my friends have gone through. It’s really about any personal struggles anyones going through. It’s meant to relate to that. In the music video, I portray a version of myself who is in a bad relationship but really I made the lyrics vague so that they can be about anything really. It could be about a bad relationship or mental illness or even addiction. It’s like I said, meant to relate to anything.”

All great music videos tell a story. Putting a visual representation to reflect the lyrics of a song makes fans appreciate even more the art that went behind creating it. Gangal was very involved in the creative process in how she wanted the music video to look. “I was yes. I was really just having trouble at first with what I was supposed to because like I said the lyrics were vague it could really be anything. I just had so many choices but I thought that one would resonate with people as well so I just decided to choose the storyline I had. I decided to portray that.”

“Yes, I’m a fan of 70s and 80s rock. I want my music to reflect that. I would say one of my biggest influences is I love Stevie Nicks. Fleetwood Mac. I love Steve Perry. Journey. I really just model my music after classic rock.” Gangal said about those who inspire her as an artist and we can all agree there is just something about classic rock that feels timeless.

Gangal shared a surprising fact that her fans might not know about her. “Well, like I said I’ve always been a fan of old music but I’m also kind of a heavy metal fan. I’ve listened to heavy metal since I was a baby. You know that’s what my parents played in the car. So that’s what I listened to since I was little.”
