Welcome to BuzzMusic, Kacey Fifield. "Selfish" carries such a mass amount of heart as you pour your emotions into this sonic canvas. Was there a particular moment or story that inspired the song's creation?
There were definitely multiple different people who inspired the heartbreak expressed in the song. I think that most people can relate to the feeling of deeply caring about someone who truly only cares about themselves. That's the story this song tells, and I hope it resonates with listeners as much as it has with me!
Do you feel a release of the emotions you put into your music once the song is out to the public? How do you draw the line at not being pulled back into the emotional situations you profess?
I always feel a sense of catharsis when I release a song - each record I put onto the internet is like a little piece of myself and my feelings, so sharing my music with people who may relate means the world to me. I wouldn't say that getting pulled back into emotional situations is a worry for me since, for me, writing songs is a way of coping and getting over my feelings.
If your audience could take away one message from "Selfish," what would you want it to be?
You're not alone, and you deserve to be loved. I care about you!
From your first single release to the release of "Selfish," how have you found your sound adapting?
I began releasing music when I was 10 years old (8 years ago!!), so my life experiences have influenced me greatly. My songwriting skills have also improved a lot! My sound has matured alongside me.
What's next for you?
I'm working on a new project that represents similar raw emotions as "Selfish," so stay tuned! I'm also performing in New York on March 11th and Los Angeles on March 21st. I can't wait!!! Check out kaceyfifield.com for ticket info.
