From Glasgow Scotland to Nashville Tennessee, pop artist Fraser Watt releases his latest feel-good single “Where Do I Go”. The Berklee grad not only interns at Starstruck Studios (Blake Shelton & Kelly Clarkson), but has also collaborated with notable musicians like Jeff Cohen, Jenn Bostic, Donna Taggart, Gus Dapperton, and others. His latest upbeat single “Where Do I Go” gives us a glimpse of Fraser Watt’s limitless talent, and ability to portray authentic emotions to effective music. With an incredibly broad range, Fraser Watt’s vocals serve a beautifully introspective message that can relate to any listener.
“Where Do I Go” begins with Fraser Watt’s heavenly falsetto and delicate supporting piano chords. Moving from the intro to the first verse, the track’s tempo increases and drops a highly danceable pop beat through underlying production. As the chorus approaches, there’s a huge sonic shift as we’re met with invigorating instrumentals that channel tender yet powerful emotions. What’s even more powerful are Fraser Watt’s vocals, soaring over the track and belting out relatable and exhilarating lyrics like “Lost all sense of what I’m meant to do, I gotta forget, gotta pick myself up and leave”. “Where Do I Go” provides a message of holding on to hope when it all goes south, and finding a place of your own to call home.

Hey Fraser Watt! Welcome to BuzzMusic! I speak for all of us here when I say we’re truly captivated by your heartfelt lyrics on your single “Where Do I Go”. What message did you want to get across to your audience through the upbeat song?
Hey, thanks for having me! I wanted to try to create some togetherness during these tough times we are all facing. If anyone out there is feeling lonely, know that you’re really not alone - we’re all in this together.
Your song “Where Do I Go” not only incorporates beautiful lyricism but effective production and instrumentation! Could you share what Fraser Watt’s creative process was like when crafting the melodies and production on “Where Do I Go”?
Absolutely! A lot of the time I’ll start with one lyric (it’s often the hook) and I’ll create different melodies off that center point. It’s so easy to get caught up or having writer’s block when you focus too much on the lyrics, but if you mess around with different melodies, I find it easier to fit words to that.
We’ve heard that you recently made a big move from Glasgow to Boston and now Nashville! What made Fraser Watt want to leave Europe and embark upon your North American music career?
College. I was so honored to be accepted into Berklee College Of Music in Boston. It was a no-brainer. I had the opportunity to work musically in a completely different country with entirely new people. I had to jump at it!
You’ve mentioned that writing for yourself isn’t enough, so you collaborate with a variety of notable musicians! Can you speak on your co-writing/collaborating process, and how it has impacted your career as an artist?
I love to co-write - bringing in a new mind helps open up the creative channel when songwriting. It’s safe to say I have learned something from every single co-write I’ve done. Everyone has their own way of doing things it helps massively to share ideas and tricks. Something I value most in the music industry is that often times when people have new ideas on how willing they are to share and teach them to others.
What can we expect to see from you throughout 2020?
More music! I am so excited about new music I have been writing both by myself and with others that I am planning to release throughout 2020, so keep an eye out…this is just the beginning!
