Welcome back to BuzzMusic, Jamie Alimorad, and congratulations on the release of your latest single, "Break the Fall." You bring such bubbly energy to this track, and we think the world needs more of that! What moment or story inspired the creation of this song?
Great to be back! Thank you. I really love this song. It was inspired by a conversation with someone important to me, and it was a rare moment of vulnerability from her. It stuck with me. We're both in areas of the entertainment industry and understand those struggles and challenges. We had a really fun night out in Santa Monica and capped it off with some music at my place. A few days later I was back in the studio, and my producer (Ross Vannelli) had this melodic idea. As he sang it to me I immediately started singing along, and at the hook for whatever reason, I sang, "Break the Fall," The melody really spoke to me, and when writing a lyric I often like to talk out my thoughts or write it in story form first. After using Ross as a soundboard, we were able to put it together in a lyrical format. It came together very quickly, and I still have the same smile on my face when I listen to it. It's a very pure song. One of the most heartfelt I've ever written.
How does "Break the Fall" compare to other songs you've released? What makes it different from the rest?
There's a certain warmth, and softness to "Break the Fall," like that of a warm blanket. The vocal delivery is very intimate and I approached it like a conversation. The way the melody rises and falls makes you think it's going to hit this big climax and cross over to something grandiose, but it never does, it stays in its lane, and I really like that. It would've been very easy to go overboard and push it in a direction that's a little more stereotypical, bordering on cheesy, but it remains sincere. The percussion moves the track along, and Ross made some really tasty sonic decisions in the arrangement.
In your own words, what is the meaning of this song? What do you hope your audience can take away from it?
I wrote this to show I care for her. When someone opens up to you, you want to be there for them. I take that very seriously if someone feels comfortable opening up to me about hard subjects. We could all use some compassion. You don't know what a person is going through, so if they trust you enough to share, that's a big deal. I don't want to get too personal, but my hope for those who listen to "Break the Fall" is that it lets them know they're not alone. Maybe it will inspire family members or old friends to call or text one another. Maybe it will inspire someone to give a loved one a hug. In the end, "Break the Fall" is about being there.
What piece of advice do you have for your audience going through similar difficulties as discussed in this track?
I think the best thing you can do is listen. When people speak, listen to what they have to say. Be present. We all live such fast-paced lives. Slow down. A true, genuine connection can be hard to come by, but when you allow yourself to open up you can discover endless possibilities.
What's next for you? I'm very excited about my first show in over 2 years! I'm working on some LA dates for the summer and beyond. I have many music video projects in the works and have much more new music coming throughout the year.
