Congratulations on the release of your album, ‘Careless Whispers.’ What inspired the title of this album as well as the overall concept that fans can hear on it?
Hello, BuzzMusic! Thank y'all so much for having me, and for the kind words! When it comes to the album title the first, and easiest answer is of course "Careless Whisper" by George Michael. It's one of the many tracks my parents played throughout my childhood that's left a lasting impression on me. There's so much story there, so much potential, and intrigue all in the span of a five-minute track. I wanted to honor that by taking elements of my personal story, and combining it with my interpretation of the meaning behind the phrase "careless whispers" itself all while diving deeper into the emotions conjured by George Michael.
How long did it take you to write and release this body of work? With 15 songs on the tracklist, we can only imagine it was a lengthy process!
If memory serves me right, I believe it took around a year to complete. I'm very fortunate to get to work with some talented people that make the whole process a lot smoother. I record at Banger Boy Studio with James "Gangsta Gutta" Kline, who has been providing guidance, as well as creating an atmosphere that feels like home at the studio. On the other end of the process is Lani Christ. An artist, engineer, and producer out of the DMV area. He masters all my tracks and has been able to really help craft the "BigBadd Wollf" sound. So, I have a lot of help keeping this machine running, and consistent.
Out of the three lead singles that you allow listeners to dive into, do you have a specific one that resonates with you more than others? Why?
Yes! The track I have the deepest connection to is "Conversations". It allowed me to express myself regarding something I deal with personally. Lyrically, it's probably the rawest song on the whole album. In the end, I appreciate each song for its differences, but "Conversations" is special.
We love the production components of each song! Who did you work with in order to develop the desired sound of this project?
Frenzy Frenchy is the man who composed all the tracks on the album. Several years ago I ran into Frenzy Frenchy on Instagram. He's a brilliant producer out of London, and I wrote several projects with his work over the years. "Careless Whispers" as an album was initially part two of a three-part set.
How does ‘Careless Whispers,’ hold up to other bodies of work that you have released?
It's really the first body of work that I've officially released. I threw some amateur mixtapes up on SoundCloud back in the day, and I've dropped several singles, but this is my first official project. It's so special to me! Of course, I listen and hear things I would do differently now, but it's genuinely the best representation of me as an artist at that moment.
