FEVER - April 25th 2014
Fever is the first single release since my Survivor’s Gold EP back in 2013.
It’s been well over a year since the EP came out and I felt like it was time to share a different part of me.
After the EP, it felt like my music was going stale. It wasn’t as interesting to me as it was before and I was finding it hard to fall in love with my own music. I felt like i wanted to experiment with my sound and my style. So, through connections, I met JP Olafson.
JP has been such a guidance for me and my music for the past few years and I knew I was in good hands when I shared my true emotions about my music with him.
Immediately, after discussing my concerns, he got on the phone and started making plans for a future writing collaboration.
Long story short, about 2-3 months ago, I met an awesome team from Eastern Europe. They had expressed interest in working with not only myself but other Canadian talent.
The first day I met Ulla Koenig and Niklas Ackermann, it was like the music worlds had aligned for me.
The passion that they both had for music was incredible and infectious.
We all hit it off really well and I could already tell that it was a good decision to bring them both on board with my music.
That same day, we started writing and surprisingly came up with a song called, “Taking Chances”.
After some much needed discussion about the title, we came up with, Fever.
Fever, may sound a lot like two people in some sort of crumbling relationship. That’s the idea we were going for, but I wanted the song to mean something deeper. Something that got people thinking. Something that, wasn’texpected.
The song is really based on me and where I am in my journey through life.
I grew up in a very religious home and as I’ve grown up and went my own way, I’ve had a battle inside me with the religious teachings that were given to me, and the world around me.
I got to a place where things weren’t making sense and I needed to find my own way and make my own mistakes.
With this journey seeming so long and so rough, I start arguing and battling with the one who I thought was the root of all the confusion, my soul.
My soul, being the one who holds onto past teachings and myself who longs for something more than stories from my childhood.
The battle becomes too great and at the end, I give up and start my own journey. The war inside my head has unchained a certain part of me and the person that I was, is no more.
I am so very lucky to have been able to write and record a song like, Fever. It’s a sound and style I’ve never had a chance to work and make my own. I’m so proud of it and I feel like its just the beginning of a new musical journey.
Thank you all for your support and I hope you enjoy the song.
