Originally the album was 3 solo tracks that were written by me to be instrumental, “just for my ears” kind of thing. I sent the songs one by one to Mel, who really helped bring more of a narrative to the tracks. I think working with Mel was probably one of the easiest collaborations I’ve ever had, even if it was remote. Being from San Francisco and her being in New Port, schedules and timing were key but it always worked out even if her or my schedule got hectic.
I sent her the tracks with little to no real sense of direction or “theme,” but we had a few talks about where we were in life and she had sent me a rough version a few days later that immediately made me feel like “wow I feel this and resonate with it 100%.” We kept the ball rolling from the 1st session to the 3rd.
All in all, she and I had a blast making every single song and once we had wrapped them up, we both decided to make it a cohesive body of work with this heartbreak and love narrative; which we both can personally relate to.-soulecist.
