Welcome to BuzzMusic Janockeil, and congrats on your latest release, "The Way." Who did you write “The Way” for?
I wrote The Way from a personal place. It is about the beginning of a new relationship and that optimistic feeling that it could go further than what you would hope for. But it's also about that feeling of "will this last?" or "I hope this one lasts", or "God, please let this wonderful feeling last", so it's about that classic 'butterflies in your stomach kind of love and you hope so badly that the other person feels the same way that you feel. In regards to who I wrote it for exactly, that part I'll keep to myself, but I will say it is inspired by real-life like all of my songs are.
What was your greatest motivation in mind while making “The Way?”
I was inspired by what occurs at the start of something new between two people. In the beginning of a relationship, it's wonderful and new and exciting and fun and scary, and those were the elements I wanted to capture.
How do you expect “The Way” to impact your career?
Like any artist, I hope it brings some success, whatever that looks like, but I am open and eager for the world to hear it and even more open and eager for where it will take me. Everything is in God's hands from here.
What would you like to say to those who will listen to “The Way?”
I hope "The Way" resonates with listeners who can relate to what it feels like to be in love or on the verge of falling in love. I've always connected with music that I can wholeheartedly relate to, and I hope this song is no different to people all over the world. We shot a music video to coincide with the release of the song, so people would not only get the actual song but the visual to go along with it. My vision was to create something that people can vibe to and have a bit of nostalgia towards, and I think we have achieved that. I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite songs that I've written. It has such a vibe throughout, from the melody to the lyrics to the harmonies and background vocals, that I can't help but love it, and I hope everyone else does too.
What's next for you?
My new project will be released in the new year. It will include "The Way" and a host of new songs, so I look forward to that. Also, I look forward to being back on stage again, so stay tuned!
