Thanks for joining us at BuzzMusic Arielle Perez, and congratulations on the debut of "Just a Dream" as well as its music video! What kind of emotions followed the release of this song and video?
Releasing this single was another success! I felt so happy and grateful that I was able to release yet another original song made by me and my producers, Jan Jansen of Blue Purple Records and James Nickle of Cleveland Sound Lab.
As an artist who performs incredibly well, how did you find embracing each emotion portrayed within "Just a Dream?" Did the song come from a personal experience?
The idea of creating “Just a Dream” did come from a personal experience that I had, in a dream of course! I wanted each and every emotion to stand out and seem like whatever happened in my dream was actually happening, which was how I felt.
You've been integrated into the arts for quite some time already! Nearing almost a decade in the next few years, how do you feel looking back at all of your progress? How do you find your sound and overall style has changed?
Looking back at all of my progress, it’s unbelievable how much I’ve developed as an artist, and as a person within the past decade! I got to experience so many amazing opportunities which have led me to where I am today. Some of those opportunities are entering competitions (Canadian Model & Talent Convention, Pinoy Voice Canada, Royal Conservatory of Music, etc.), composing and releasing my original songs on music platforms (Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music, etc.), and being on set for major TV/movie streaming services (Netflix & CBC).
What were some challenges that you experienced, if any, during the writing and recording process of your song, "Just a Dream?"
A challenge I had in writing “Just a Dream” was having writer’s block. I wanted to find the perfect words to describe how I felt in this particular dream and how it felt so real to me. Though during the recording process, everything went really well thanks to my producers, Jan and James! I couldn’t have done this without them and the support of my loving family and friends, especially my awesome parents!
