Words By Joey Rochert.
Hello, Lost Blonde, Let’s talk about your new single, ‘Wide Awake’, what is the meaning?
Wide Awake is the last song off my EP, “Do You Feel The Same?”. This song is about being so enamored by the “what ifs” of a new relationship. You are anxiously waiting to see if the person you are crushing on feels the same.
Which artists in the current industry inspire you the most?
Bebe Rexha, Taylor Swift, and Katy Perry for sure!
What is the best thing about being a musician in 2023?
I would say you can have success as an independent artist without a label. There are so many resources now available to indie artists and platforms to share music on, which makes it a bit easier to get your music out there!
Is there a certain place you often go to write? E.g a certain room, or environment?
I love writing at night. I feel like my best ideas come literally at midnight haha. I will usually grab my phone while I’m lying in bed and record the melody I’m humming into my voice memos so I can go to the piano the next day and start adding lyrics. Honestly any room with a piano will give me inspiration.
What is your first memory of music?
My first memory of music is listening to my grandma play the piano when she’d come and visit. She was a professional piano player, and I just remember the sound filling up the room…so many different textures and colors I couldn’t stop listening. I think that really sparked my interest, hearing how many different melodies someone could come up with or play!
