Hello Reese and welcome to BuzzMuisc. We genuinely appreciate the heartfelt tones and introspective lyricism within your latest single, "Over Under." Where did you find the inspiration to write/create this vulnerable and reflective tune?
I wanted to make a song that reflects how distance feels in a relationship. I think during lockdown we all felt disconnected and distant so I used this song as a way to express that feeling.
What was your songwriting process like for "Over Under?" Did you face any personal challenges when opening your heart for listeners to connect?
As a young artist, I am still testing the waters finding out my sound. I think ‘Over Under’ is the first song I am releasing that has a transparent and vulnerable side to it which I am hoping will resonate with my listener.
What inspired the soothing and calming sonics for "Over Under?" Why did you want the instrumentals to surround the fluid and tender electric guitar?
I wanted this song to let the lyrics and my vocals shine so I wanted to make sure that the surrounding production was simple and effortless. I think when wanting to make a song more personal, the song itself must have the emotion in the vocals and lyrics be the center of the song.
