Review Fix chats with singer/songwriter to find out the inspiration and goals for her new single, â€œWhat You Seek.â€
Review Fix: What was the creative process like for “What You Seek”? Is there a story behind it?
Anna Renee: It was very collaborative. I went in with lyrics and a melody for theÂ verse and chorus,Â and as Stephen was building the track, I jokingly sang the chorus in a higher key and Daniel liked it. We ended up changing theÂ verse completely to fit the new direction,Â which is where Cazz came in, bringing fresh ears and a new melody idea for the verse. The story behind the lyrics I’ll leave open for interpretation.
Review Fix: How is this song different than some of your other tracks?
Renee: ThisÂ wholeÂ EP has me moving in more of an electronic/pop direction, while still maintaining real instrument sounds.
Review Fix: How do you want it to be remembered?
Renee: As having madeÂ youÂ feel good. The vibe Stephen and Daniel created inÂ the chorus makes me feel happy.
Review Fix: How has 2016 treated you so far?
Renee: It’s been very kindÂ toÂ me. I’ve been working with really talented musicians and goodÂ friends, learning about myself, and getting more in touch with my creative voice.
Review Fix: How have you grown as a musician since the last time we spoke?
Renee: I’m developing a deeper relationship to music, learningÂ guitarÂ and listening to more music and going to more shows and immersing myself in theÂ energyÂ field as much asÂ possible. I’m appreciating what I do more as I nurture this relationship to the sound current.
Review Fix: What are your goals for 2017?
Renee: My heart is set on touring abroad. I’m also writing a web series with aÂ musicianÂ friend, Libby Dorot, with original music, where we’ll both be acting as well. We will finish writing this soon and hopefully be able to film it in the next year.
Review Fix: What’s next?
Renee: For now I’m going to focus on music lessons and getting the music I’ve spent this past year creating out there. I’mÂ excitedÂ for whatever comes next.
