  2018 Lakeview Alumni, Fin Mayfield, and Liliana Webb, ‘20 both have a hobby and passion for making music, and both are extremely talented in it.  As music becomes more and more popular, the production of music seems to become more and more popular as well.

   Mayfield started making music just over three years ago. At first, it was a fun way too goof off with his friends in the basement, but it didn’t take long for him to realize that this is actually something that he loves to do.

  “I make music because I think that it is a lot of fun and I listened to a lot of music growing up, and just in general. And then I would hear songs and wish they were different, so I would try to recreate songs and make them my way,” Mayfield explained.

  Mayfield makes a lot of his music on the computer, and has recently started to sell his rap beats for money. He advertises his songs on instagram and snapchat whenever he puts a new one out on soundcloud.

  “I have sold some of my music before. Specifically, I have sold pre-made and custom rap beats to people,” said Mayfield.

  Mayfield does not want to stop making music and would love to one day have a career in the music industry.

  “I would love to be a DJ like Marshmello, who tours and such, or a producer like Metro Bommin, who produces beats for people like Drake,” described Mayfield.

  Similarly, Webb makes music, but on a completely different level. She sings and plays the guitar and ukulele.

  “I have always written songs, but I started doing it seriously in 7th grade. I grew up around music; my parents were in a band, so it was sort of a natural instinct for me to sing and make music, since it was always around me,” said Webb.

  Like Mayfield, Webb advertises her music on social media, such as instagram and youtube. Webb’s friends and family are all very supportive of her and her music. She hopes that people will be able to relate to her through her music.

  “My goal regarding music would to definitely be to release as much music as possible and hopefully put out a full album- I want people to be able to relate to my music and I want to reach out to them through my lyrics and help people feel,” explained Webb.
