Welcome to BuzzMusic, SevvTheArtist! We love the imagery you paint within your new single, "BLU." Can you tell us more about the creative process behind crafting this atmospheric vibe and how it complements the lyrical themes of emotional uncertainty?
Thank you! Happy to be here. I'd say real-life experiences, past relationships, and their complexities. "BLU" was inspired by infidelity and exploring the theme of curiosity and self-discovery in the LGBTQ+ communities. It compliments emotional uncertainty by expressing doubt and insecurity to connect with listeners who have faced similar experiences.
Your velvety and encapsulating vocals perfectly capture the emotions in "BLU." How do you infuse your personal experiences and feelings into your vocal performance, especially when dealing with complex themes like rocky relationships?
It comes naturally. I'm emotional, and I wear my heart on my sleeve. My vocal performance reflects genuine emotions based on those experiences.
From soul and jazz to R&B, how have these musical influences shaped your unique sound, and what do you think sets your approach to R&B apart from others in the genre?
Expression and delivery. The themes of the music have shaped my sound... love, relationships, heartbreak. It's the blending of all those influences that led to the creation of my sound. My tone sets me apart from other artists in the genre. It's both personal and distinctive; I don't sound like anyone else but myself.
"BLU" explores the consequences of infidelity and emotional turmoil in a relationship. Can you share more about the inspiration behind this narrative and the message you hope to convey through the song's lyrics?
For some reason, I've always entertained flirtatious heterosexual women who were "curious" about dating other women. The inspiration is based on real experiences I've observed dealing with a woman who had a man at home. I'm posing the question, "Tell me if you want it? All types of blue," related to the consequences of infidelity and emotional turmoil at home. The message conveys the difficulty in temptation and lust for the curious person and the one getting betrayed.
What's next for you?
I continue to build my sound, catalog, and image before my debut album. Look forward to new music, and all things, SevvTheArtist.
