Hey NINETOFIVE, welcome to BuzzMusic! From production to vocal arrangements, “Would You” serves the good vibes we’ve been searching for nowadays. Can you share what NINETOFIVE’s creative process was like when crafting your single “Would You”?

"Would You" was created from scratch alongside my producer Adam Josh and co-writer Andrew Pederson. It started off with the amazing beat laid down by Adam, which established the whole vibe of the record. This song followed the same creative process many of our other songs have, which starts with a beat, followed by laying down some melodies and finishing with the lyrics. The lyrical content is drawn from the emotions and vibe that we feel the beat and melodies exude.


Your latest single “Would You” brings in sublime modern R&B production creating a beautiful atmosphere. What were NINETOFIVE’s original intentions for how you wanted ‘Would You” to sound and feel to its listeners?

I wouldn't say there are any particular artists that I draw inspiration from lyrically, but it's definitely a mix of everything/everyone I listen to and grew up listening to. I was exposed to so many different genres of music and I truly believe that they've all contributed to my craft. Most of my lyrics derive from personal experiences that I've faced, or even that people around me have gone through based on the emotions I feel the music gives off. It's rare that I start with an emotion or experience and build a song around it, but more often I indulge myself into a beat and pull out thoughts and things I've been through as a foundation to write from.


You’ve mentioned that your melodic R&B sound draws inspiration from other Toronto stars like The Weekend and Majid Jordan. Could you share where NINETOFIVE draws lyrical inspiration from? What helps you think of lyrics that match the song's atmosphere?

Seneca College's Independent Songwriting and Performance program has greatly impacted my career in a positive way. I truly believe it fast-tracked me to learn skills that would have taken me years to learn in just 1 year. Not only did I get to work with industry professionals on a daily basis, but I also got to collaborate with other amazing artists from all of Canada. Prior to attending the program, I had never written a full song - funny enough the first song I ever wrote was actually the audition song to get into the program. I'm extremely grateful for having the opportunity to get accepted to such an exclusive program and attribute the strong start I had to my career to my experience there.


We’ve heard that you studied at Toronto’s Seneca College for Independent Songwriting and Performance. Can you share how formally studying songwriting and performance has impacted you as an artist, and how the program helped your music flourish?
