Welcome to BuzzMusic Jennifer Juliette. What a heartfelt and relatable listening experience you've provided with your latest single, "Columns." What inspired you to create this breathtaking piece?
Thank you so much! "Columns" is about cheating. Or at least about a lack of trust. Unfortunately, I think so many people have been through something similar. I personally went through it and needed to bang it out at my piano before I went crazy.
Was it difficult to sit down and reach back into your emotional thoughts when writing your lyrics for "Columns?"
At the time, it was absolutely therapeutic. I needed to push out all those awful thoughts and create something beautiful out of it. I’m about to perform it live for the first time on the 13th of September in Prague and it will be interesting to see whether it’ll bring strong emotions on stage. Did you work with any producers when finalizing the song "Columns?" How did they help refine the song and bring it to life? I worked with Arthur Pingrey, who has produced all my singles so far. He had a great idea for the percussion to bring even more passion into the song. The first time I heard the production from just piano and voice that I had created, I was blown away. It’s so full and dramatic! What should we anticipate from your forthcoming debut EP, 'Anchor?' How will this project represent who you are and the music you create?
Each song is a little piece of me and my life. Anchor is a classical track for a movie. Small Voice is quiet and emotional. I’ll Be is about a larger-than-life personality I knew in London. Columns is a louder outpouring of emotions, as a sequel to Small Voice.
What's next for you?
The concert on the 13th is so close and very exciting. I am working on more Celtic-style music but also some dance-type tracks, something I never tried before. I’m happy to experiment but I hope to always have that Celtic vibe and melodic structure somewhere underneath.
