We're genuinely enthralled with your sweet-sounding sophomore single, "These Feelings." What experiences inspired you to create a song about facing difficulty expressing your feelings for someone?
Hello, thank you so much! The experience that inspired me to create this song is that I wanted to ask out my crush. I thought about it for days and weeks! It was on my mind every day, and I was nervous to ask him out. I constantly thought about the things I would say to him and how he would react. And then, one day, I made the brave decision to just go for it! I did, and it worked out amazing, and I'm beyond happy that I decided to just ask and have the confidence.
Was it challenging to open your heart and write such vulnerable lyrics for "These Feelings?" Or was this process somewhat therapeutic?
It was actually surprisingly therapeutic. I never realize how therapeutic songwriting is for me until I recognize how much better I feel after writing lyrics. The lyrics perfectly describe all the emotions and thoughts I had in my head frequently and writing this song helped me to ultimately ask my crush out. It was pretty easy for me to write the lyrics.
The production for "These Feelings" is incredibly lush and gentle. Why did you want the song to emit this delicate sonic vibe?
Thank you! I started the melody for this song on my piano as I do with all my songs, and I instantly knew that I wanted to have a dreamy vibe to the song. I want listeners to feel like they are experiencing this dreamy, cute, romantic love story and be able to hear all the loving emotions in the music.
How do your first two singles, "Heartache" and "These Feelings," help us get to know who you are and your music style? What do these two songs have in common?
My first two songs hopefully make it known that I like to write love songs. And that's what both of my songs have in common. They are about love. "Heartache" is a slow, sad, heartbreak song, while "These Feelings" is absolutely different and way more optimistic! I'm still exploring my music style as a new artist, and I love to experiment with different sounds. And I think it is great to try new things with music and create what you really love the most!
