How did you come up with this record? What was the specific vibe?
I wrote this song in my room in like 45 mins because I was just going through the emotion of it all. I downloaded a guitar sample and looped it. I just hopped on the mic and sang melodies and started writing it all out. I had this song sitting in my files for like months and didn’t want to touch it because of how vulnerable I felt sharing it with others. I showed it to my music producer one day and he was like “nah you can’t keep this from the world, your vulnerability is what makes you special and relatable. I decided to be brave and just do it. Later that day we produced the entire song and recorded the vocals that you hear now for “Roses & Flames”.
Were there any influences for the record?
Yes! We were going for an old school type of R&B vibe, with like a 90’s sound. We wanted the song to feel like a story book and almost vintage. Some of our influences were artists like Justin Timberlake, Sabrina Claudio, Jorja Smith, & Aretha Franklin.
What makes the song stand out from the rest of your catalog?
This song stands out not only because of its old school, R&B genre, but because of how the lyrics unfold, kind of like a poem. It doesn’t just make the person listening to it feel a certain type of way, but it paints a picture to where you almost feel like you’re watching a movie. I wanted the listener to not only feel my emotion, I wanted them to see it. This song is so far the most vulnerable piece I have ever shared with the world.
What message(s) do you want the listeners to take away after hearing the song?
In my song “Roses & Flames” love and pain are intertwined. The message I want people to take away is that we all have to risk something at some point. We will never be safe from heartbreak, loss, & tragedies throughout this life unless we give up all endeavors of pursuing love. I hope people realize this but always choose love. Life without it would be boring and I love a good drama.
