Welcome to BuzzMusic, Julianna Jones! Congratulations on the release of, “Bad for Me.” We love the energy you showcase on this track! Was there a particular moment or story that inspired the creation of this song?
Most artists have a story behind their songs, and when I wrote "Bad for Me", I didn't have just one thing that inspired it, it was a multitude of things at the same time that had lead me to my breaking point. I found myself stuck in a situation that felt very manipulating and toxic so one random Monday night in mid-December I sat down and wrote everything I was feeling at around 1:30 am and sent it all to my friend. All I had at the time was a crappy voice memo and background beat.
With each artist varying in techniques, what environment do you find yourself to be the most creative with your art?
I am very much a night owl, so my creativity tends to come when I'm alone in my room with my piano at late hours of the night. I try to dive deep into my past experiences or events I've seen my friends go through and write based on true events or feelings.
Could you please share a glimpse into the recording process that has placed “Bad for Me,” in our speakers?
The recording process for "Bad for Me" was super easy and entertaining, to say the least. Most of production was done by my long-time friend Garrett LaJoie and then sent off to MUSICBYMILANO, who's worked with Tory Lanez and Icona Pop, to name a few. I love collaborating with different artists and connecting with people who share the same interests as myself.
What are you hoping your listeners feel when hearing this song for the first time? Is there a particular lyric that you would like to stand out to them?
What I hope that the listeners take away from this song is that if they're in a similar situation, that they know the signs of a bad relationship, realize their worth and know that they're not alone. No one is perfect and we all make mistakes, grow and learn to create a better version of ourselves. It's taking that one step to get yourself out with the old and in with the new. Just remember whenever you're in a toxic situation, "Is that really what I'm worth"?
What's next for you?
I am planning on releasing more music this year to further my career as a solo singer-songwriter and dabbling in more production and songwriting.
