BEHIND THE MUSIC

This song was crucial to my development as an artist. We live in a time in the music world where the industry has become largely oversaturated by virtual instruments and samples because of the large amounts of access granted to the consumer. Music has become a lot more affordable to make, which is phenomenal, but it has led to a change in the industry that is represented by large amounts of soft-synth (software synth, piano, and other sample based engines) sonics for two main reasons.

1 - Soft-synths are way highly accessible and way cheaper than their analog, or physical, counterparts.

2. It’s just easier.

Long story short, until the last year I almost exclusively used these soft-synths. Since then however, I’ve gotten very interested in developing a sound that mixes both soft-synths and analog instruments like pianos, guitars, etc.

This song is so dope to me because it’s the first song I ever made that has zero soft-synths in it. Every sound you hear in the song was played or sung. By no means am I a developed guitarist or pianist or bassist or any sort of instrumentalist but I’m proud for hearing something in my head and putting it together in a way that sounds great.

I wrote this song at the end of Summer while my girlfriend at the time was back home several states away. I don’t really know how to go about this without sounding sappy but I just was feeling very appreciative of her at the time I wrote this. She is a dynamic woman and I thought it fair that I portray that.

As far as the production goes, I recorded and wrote the song in one evening and honestly used the same recording track I used that night for my vocal. It sounded the rawest and most authentic. I played everything you hear except for the bass which was graciously played by my uncle, David Medure, while I was back home for Thanksgiving. We recorded the bass for about an hour and a half and then we were done lol. That’s it. The song came together quickly when I got back to New York City. I mixed and then mastered several times before I was happy and now here we are today haha.

I feel nervous about releasing something so out of my comfort zone but I’m excited for the world to hear. Let me know what you guys think. I hope you enjoy.

Thank you! With love always,

- J

I want to give a special shoutout to Dr. Tyreek Jackson. He teaches music production at the University I go to. He is one of the best teachers/people I’ve come across at my school and just happens to be a sick bassist. Although we didn’t end up using his bass for the final cut, his contributions steered me in the right direction and for that, I’m grateful.
