Hello Tonne Desai and welcome to BuzzMusic. We love your latest single “Replay.” Where did the inspiration for this song stem from?
The inspiration stems from a really good friendship that I had that ended not so good. Over time we both were drawn back to one another and we both asked ourselves if we wanted to restart or press replay on our friendship and try again.
You’ve been creating music for quite some time now. Could you please share with us some noticeable differences in yourself as an artist from your first release to now?
When I first released music I didn't really know what kind of artist or even what kind of music I wanted to put out. I was still trying to understand my voice, my writing style, and ultimately where I could fit in this industry. Now, I know who I am as an artist, and I've grown so much. I know the kind of music I want to make and I know the type of audience I want to draw in. I use to be scared of what people thought of my music but now I'm fearless.
How do the smooth and uplifting vibrations of “Replay,” compare to other songs in your music catalog?
I think for Replay they act as the lightning coursing through the audience's heart and memory of that person who they would wanna ask the question " So Press forward or are you gonna Replay". The smooth and uplifting vibrations act as the bed for the audience to lay down in and really think about the person they love while having a good time doing it! In my other songs I always just focused on the hook to bring the audience in but for replay, it's the hook and those smooth and uplifting vibrations that do the job and I love that.
In terms of the theme and messaging what would you like your audience to take away from “Replay?"
What I would want my audience to take away is that a person sometimes has to exit your life temporarily for you to recognize that you actually love them. I want Replay to show them that sometimes a restart is actually what you need in order to have what was meant to be.
