Welcome to BuzzMusic Sonnet Simmons. What inspired the empowering lyrical message within "Triumphant?" What did you want your audience to take for themselves from your lyricism?
Triumphant is about feeling the rush fear when facing hard things, and leaning in any way because you choose to bet on yourself and own your power. As a mom to two little girls, this is a powerful message I want them to learn. And it's a reminder to all of us, to own our power, to say what we mean, to do what we love, and believe in ourselves, even when it feels dark.
What was your collaborative songwriting process like with Rehya Stevens for "Triumphant?" Was this your first time working with her?
This is the first song that Rehya and I wrote together. She's amazing. We hit quite a few roadblocks along the way, making this song a true Triumph! Together we found ways to make Triumphant into the song you hear today. Rehya was instrumental in holding a flame for the vision of this song. We started this song when I was newly pregnant with my first baby, recorded the first round of vocals right before I gave birth, recorded the final vocals with my daughter in the studio at almost a year old, went through one producer when I was pregnant with my second and had our second producer take it to the finish line after my second daughter was born! That is how long this song took to finish. But it was so worth it. It has already been placed in some amazing commercials. It was a beautiful process and so grateful to Rehya for taking such a strong stance to get it done!
How did producer Randy Gist help bring your sonic visions to life for "Triumphant?" How did the two of you go about crafting such an exciting and stimulating sonic atmosphere?
Randy Gist is known for his dynamic work in trailer music. We thought, "Yes! Please bring this type of power, punch, and impact to this song." "Triumphant" demanded something bold, big, and authentic, and Randy brought just that!
