What was the inspiration behind the track?

This track was inspired by the many challenges I took on this year (getting in shape, learning how to sing, becoming a songwriter) and how I wasn’t seeing any results. I just started telling myself that everything I was doing would start to make sense one day. This feeling became the starting point of the song, and I just built it up from there.

How did you approach writing this song?

I started out with just an acoustic guitar. I wrote a chord progression for the chorus and verses and put some some draft lyrics over it. Once this was done and I had a rough structure, I sat at my computer and started looking for sounds that would create the vibe of the track. It all started with the bass sound from the verse, and everything else just came out naturally.

Do you have a favourite line/section of the song?

I love the chorus because it’s got such a hopeful a positive message to it. I go back to it every time I doubt myself and it always gives me the motivation to push forward. I hope people get the same feeling when listening to it.

Can you describe your sound in the three words?

Pop, Funky, Upbeat.

How do you feel your sound has developed from studying at BIMM?

I have seen a tremendous evolution in my sound within my 2.5 years at BIMM. When I started, I loved metal and that was all I knew how to do. Through all the people I met and the new music I was exposed to, I went on a journey to find my own sound. The new genres that really spoke to me were funk and pop music. I tried mixing them up and found something that actually resembled me. It’s been very rewarding.

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?

The friends you make and the insane amount of amazing music you are exposed to.
