Hungry to move forward, Szilva branched off into a solo career, and taught herself music production through a vigorous course of trial and error. Szilva wrote, produced and recorded her first solo album. Szilva then took a leap across the oceans to Los Angeles to pursue her career in music and promote her new record. While abroad, Szilva’s music video for “Own Little World” was broadcasted throughout Australia and New Zealand on National television.
