Meet Laura Alysse Varker, Arizona native on the track to fame.  LV is a singer, songwriter, dancer, and performer.  LV’s most recent release was her single “I LUV U”, available on iTunes or Amazon.  Read how this hottest up-and-coming recording artist answered these 20 questions.

I was born…

in central Phoenix at Good Sam’s hospital and grew up on the north side of Phoenix. Since 18 I have lived all over the valley; west, central, and south Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa and Avondale. North Phoenix felt most like home so that is where I reside now.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

would be the ease of living; compared to other states you can live a pretty nice lifestyle for a relatively low cost. The weather is nice 85% of the year and we have the pleasure of being in the mountains while not being too far away from the beach (close to California and Mexico).

I’m listening to…

Besides my music, right now i’ve been loving John Legends new record “Made to Love.”

My family…

is amazing. I am very blessed to come from a family who loves me and lets me make decisions on my own and even if they don’t agree or totally support me, they have always respected my decisions no matter what, and have helped as best they can.

If I could have dinner with one person, it would be…

Beyonce Knowles. I have a ton of questions I would ask her, things i’ve been experiencing along the way throughout my own journey in the music business and she’s my all around biggest idol. I look up to her and respect her so much.

One thing I cannot live without…

is my cell phone beacuase it’s my connection to the world. I am on the go all the time, I am constantly texting or checking emails, keeping up with my social networks and talking to my manager so it’s important that I have my phone and charger on me at all times.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

I have never wanted to be anything other than a mega pop star. Some kids want to be a veterinarian and some kids want to be a doctor, but i’ve dreamed of being a singer since I can remember.

Im inspired by…

everything; things that i’ve experienced, things that a friend has experienced, things going on in the world, something I saw in a dream or even something I made up. Inspiration is everywhere you just have to open up your mind and let in marinate.

The one person who motivates me…

the most is definitely my manager Eddie Lemons. He wants me to win just as much as I do. We talk everyday for at least 2 hours discussing what we have going on, what we can do to be better, where we need to be one week from now, one month from now and so on and so fourth. I feel like if one day the whole world decided to turn their backs on LV SHARP and I one day lost every single fan I’ve ever gained, Ed Lemons would still be standing by my side telling me it will be okay and we will start over. Failure is not an option and throughout all the hard work my manager pushes me, motivates me, and inspires me to be the best I can possibly be.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

that all races religions and cultures would be as one. True peace and love for all people in the world; no war and no hatred.

The perfect day would be…

one where I can balance health with hard work productiveness and love. In other words, wake up early cook myself a healthy breakfast, get a high intensity workout in at the gym, go home shower and head to the studio to record or dance or anything investing time into my career, and then finishing the day with dinner with a friend or with family.

My first job was…

actually selling discount cards/books to restaurants door to door when I was 14. I made between 100 and 300 dollars a day which was a lot of money for a 14 year old so I was loving it! The company ended up shutting down a year or so later and the employees never really found out why.

My favorite escape…

I would have to say is just throwing on my headphones in a candle-lit room with the lights dimmed with the company of my two cats, who are very very chill, and writing whatever comes to mind to a track that inspires me.

My life…

is exactly how it is supposed to be. I am a believer in the saying “everything happens for a reason,” because sometimes when you feel like you have just been dealt the worst cards possible, what you don’t know is those cards had to come out in order to hit that blackjack on the next hand. I take life as it comes to me. Now I also believe in “life is what you make it.” Same philosophy, you have to deal with what’s in front of you, but the way you deal with it is all up to you. Make the best of every situation and as long as you never give up you will be okay.

I am currently working on…

my second single as well as working on my marketing and promotion to broaden my brand.

Always…

put yourself first. I am naturally a very generous person and somewhat of a “people pleaser.” Over the years those qualities of mine have been used and abused, taken advantage of and I have been left seriously hurt. I promised myself from then on to always help myself before I can help others. I know each person is different but one suggestion of mine to avoid disappointment would be to be very selective of the people you choose to go to the moon for so to speak or bend over backwards for. Make sure that those people are worth it and would be willing to do the same for you if need be. Don’t make yourself a leeches target.

Never…

give up. Always believe in yourself and invest all your time into what you truly want in life. You really can do anything you set your mind to but your skill and your talents are only as great as your determination and drive will allow them to be, so work hard then work even harder.

Favorite quote…

is “Team work makes the dream work.”

Biggest dream…

in life would be to fulfill all of my dreams as a singer and continue to thrive at the top of the game in music as well as have a family of my own, husband and kids, and be able to balance the two; a thriving career and a happy healthy and whole family.

My biggest pet peeve(s)…

would be people who don’t do what they say they’re going to do. If I tell you I’m going to do something, I do it point blank period and I will do whatever I have to do to make that happen otherwise I simply wont say that I can do it. I also really hate when people waste my time, they sort of go hand in hand.
