Jaimie Steck is a pop singer and songwriter from Los Angeles, California. She is unique in this day and age of the music industry as she combines two art forms: music and dance. Her aim is to incorporate a thrilling performance into her music, whether through her music videos or live performances. Her ultimate goal is to bring back the multi-faceted showmanship of pop music that has been gradually disappearing. As a songwriter, Steck lets her inner voice speak through her lyrics while bringing power and entertainment value through visuals. Fueled by inspiration from artists such as Britney Spears, Janet Jackson and Madonna, Jaimie Steck is making her mark on today’s music industry with her fresh take on pop music.
BuzzMedia is thrilled to present a new single by Jaimie Steck called “Full Moon”. Speck’s voice is immediately captivating, and there is definitely a tangible “old-school” vibe to the beat and the verse. The synths create a background quality to this song that sets an eerie vibe. The track is well produced with background vocals that complement the lead vocals nicely. The themes of darkness shine nicely through the entire song, complete with a “howl at the moon” moment towards the end. This is a great example of a modern take on an old-school hip hop style, and Steck seems quite confident in bringing this sound and energy to her music.
We highly recommend you give “Full Moon” a listen on Spotify, and check below for Jaimie's exclusive interview with BuzzMusic.
Hey Jaimie! Thanks for catching up with us. Can you start by telling us a little bit about your background and how you got into music and songwriting in the first place?
Thank you for having me! I am a singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. I grew up in Orlando where I used to put on mini concerts in my living room and use the “American Idol” Wii Karaoke game as an excuse for not doing my homework. I would say, “Mom, I’m doing research and practicing!” I longed for the performance rush and musicality that comes with being a singer. One day I finally decided “If this is what my dream in life really is, why am I not going for it?” So, thats what I did. With songwriting, I can remember it being a source of expression since I was a young child. I remember having a black and white notebook of songs I wrote dating back to the second grade. Eventually my random words grew into dozens of songs with lyrics inspired by my own heartbreak, confidence, or the simplicity of sitting next to a stranger on a plane.
You talk about combining art forms in your music. Where did you get the inspiration to combine dance with your music? Has that always come naturally to you?
The inspiration to combine dance with my music came from my own personal joy of seeing it. Watching someone like Britney Spears have full out dance routines that in part were just as iconic as the song itself. Watching her fired up something inside of me, and I concluded that if I was going to create art I would compliment it with meaningful choreography. I believe you have to go the extra mile above what comes naturally to become supernatural. I am fortunate enough to be doing what I love to do and expressing myself in life that also liberates me. In turn I am hoping that inspires others to appreciate and enjoy their lives to the fullest by following their hearts.
Who would you say your biggest artistic influences are?
Oh. Britney Spears. If you couldn’t tell? The way she redefined her era by making sure every performance she did whether in a Pepsi commercial, VMA performance, or tour was it’s own handcrafted spectacle. I knew when I tuned in, I was prepared to see a show, paired with songs that made me want to get up and dance. I also feel influenced heavily on the business side of the music industry by Beyonce. She is an example of someone who puts her mind, soul, and body into every aspect of her brand and image. She truly redefines the boundaries until everything is flawless (no pun intended). I am very meticulous about what I want presented in the world, and I am inspired and encouraged by Beyonce's work ethic and passion. It validates my own pursuits and precision in a way.
You have a new single out called “Full Moon”. You do a good job bringing the darkness vibes to the table. Did you have a particular message or meaning behind the music in this case?
The concept for Full Moon is a “sexy, dark anthem” especially in regards to the production. If you really listen you can hear the double meaning. I was heavily influenced by “Genie In A Bottle” by Christina Aguilera and how it paralleled discovering yourself and a mystical being. I wanted to write a song about discovering your sensuality with a person. When you are able to be free and to be your true unfiltered self with someone, without judgement. I also wanted to play around with the intention of the song. Is she singing about being intimate with a lover or is she really a werewolf exposing her secret transformation? I really enjoyed creating and finding those moments.
What’s next on the horizon for Jaimie Steck?
There is a lot more content coming your way and I am beyond excited. I am currently recording vocals for my second single, "Sixth Sense". I am absolutely in love with it, and I cannot wait to be able to share it with everyone. All in all, its now go time. I have finally introduced myself into the world of pop music and I do not to plan on slowing down anytime soon. I am grateful for all of the positive feedback and support so far as an emerging artist. I cannot wait to share what is in store.
