Welcome to BuzzMusic Ada Pasternak, and congratulations on the release of “Feelin’ Good.” You put together such a direct picture that embeds itself into our minds as we take this song in. Was there a particular moment or story that inspired the creation of this record?
It was 11:30 at night when I received an email about a song placement for a TV show in which they were looking for a happy-sounding feel-good song. I didn’t have exactly what they needed in my song catalog, so I started writing. I strummed my violin and sang melodies until I had a song. I called it “Feelin' Good.”
We hear you demonstrating a myriad of musical techniques during the span of this track. Could you please share a glimpse into what the creative process looked like when bringing this to life?
It always starts with an idea, a melody or a lyric, sometimes both, and then I sorta “jam” on it until the idea develops into a song. I knew that I was going in the direction of writing a “feel-good” song, but I made the chorus “I’m feeling good” and the rest sort of wrote itself. I wrote the song by midnight and recorded it that night.
The world could always use some more optimism. So, what do you personally have to feel good about? How do you apply this to your career as an artist?
I have SO much to feel good about. I love my friends and family and I have an amazing boyfriend. I live in Los Angeles and make music for a living. I am healthy. It’s a gift that shouldn’t be taken for granted. I don’t always feel happy of course. I’m human and go through hard times and sadness just like everyone else. But at the end of the day, my life is beautiful and I’m grateful.
What happens to be the proudest moment you’ve experienced on your musical journey this far?
I can’t recall a time when I felt proud. I will let you know when I do.
What's next for you?
I’m planning on releasing my next single “Grow Older” along with a Music Video. Very excited about it!
