Congratulations on the release of, “Breathe You.” What moment inspired the creation of this single that we have the pleasure of listening to?
It’s interesting you ask that because there was preceded drama in my own romantic life that I was dealing with. It just so happened to be that the producer I was working with at the time had been dealing with the drama of his own, and that was the moment... Although we had a tinge of darkness looming over our heads, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise to write a breakup song with someone who was also going through a breakup. It felt as if we weren’t going through breakup-grief at the same time, we would not have captured as much emotion within writing “Breathe You.”
Do you happen to have a favorite lyric from “Breathe You,” that resonates with you more than the others written? If so, which is it?
I remember sitting with the co-writer, Gary Miller, deep into a songwriting session. He blurts out, “...bruised and broken, wounds wide open...” The look on his face said ‘take it from here.’ So I come back with, “...remember what we had?” Our lightbulbs went off simultaneously.
We were so immersed in the art that we were finishing each other’s sentences; things like that are what makes the process so special.
What musical and non-musical influences do you take into the melodies that you create?
When it comes to my inspiration for melodies, not only just in “Breathe You,” but in every song I write, it stems from listening to voices I feel comfortable singing along with as well as what part of my abilities I’m determined to strengthen at the time. For example, in more recent years (especially since Covid) I made it a priority to expand my vocal range, high and low. That’s when my music preference shifted toward powerhouse singers and songwriters like Chris Cornell, Neil Finn, Bruno Mars, Jason Derulo, the list goes on. The same goes for songwriting! Connecting with John Mayer’s lyrical messages as a teenager really inspired me to pursue a writing style that made sense to me just like how his style makes sense to him.
What are you hoping that listeners take away from the themes and messages in, “Breathe You?"
When listening to “Breathe You,” I hope the listener can walk away with enjoying a story that people can apply to their own post-breakup grief to. When writing the line, “When I close my eyes, baby all I see is who you couldn’t be” I intended a sense of redemption through the truthful statement of what it takes to move on from that chapter in your life.
What's next for you?
I am currently still promoting the release of Breathe You (dropped Feb 14th, 2021), with merchandise contests on my social media pages and collaborating with social media influencers. Collectively, the song has reached over 200,000 listens across Instagram and TikTok. I am also attending and performing (virtually) at the Millennium Music Conference 25 on Feb. 26 and 27. SUPER excited about that! Here’s a link to their YouTube Channel for where the performances will be live-streamed on Feb. 27 here.
This year, I plan to release four more singles that each have their own vibe and story going for them. On top of that, I’m participating in a pilot series called ‘Next Top Hit’ as a featured artist this coming March. More details here: williamsville.us/next-top-hit/
