1. Hey Samantha! Congratulations on your new EP “Echoes (The Echo Sessions.)” The first two songs are such a warm welcome to the EP. “Good Lovin'” is such a dynamic song, and the subtle variations between the two versions add a unique touch to the EP. If you had to choose one version of the song to represent the essence of the EP, which version would it be and why?
A: I would probably choose the clean version lol Just cause it keeps a really positive vibe. I think you mean between the Clean version and the Explicit version, correct? I say clean because I want young kids to be able to listen and not here bad language: )
2. “Sorry Not Sorry” has a unique blend of both calm and upbeat vibes. Can you walk us through your creative process for achieving that balance in the song, and how did you choose the specific elements like instrumentation and tempo to convey that feeling?
A: We knew it had to feel timeless so we went straight to the instruments that stand the test of time such as the piano, guitar, steel, harmonica for example. Then we focused on the building of the harmonies.
3. The lyrics of “Sorry Not Sorry” are relatable and impactful. What was your inspiration for writing the song, and how do you hope people connect with the message in the lyrics?
A: It’s about growing up and growing a part from somewhere or someone that might not of been a great influence on you but how ultimately the experience helped you grow. It’s about living with no regrets.
4. “Christmas In a Small Town” is my favorite track on the Ep. The nostalgic vibe, the wholesome lyrics, and the soul-soothing vocals make this song a standout for me. If you had to describe the feeling that inspired you to write this song, what would it be? Would it be a memory from your childhood or a recent experience that evoked a sense of nostalgia and warmth?
A: The song was actually brought to me by my friend and incredible award-winning songwriter Kyle Jacobs. He wrote the song a few years ago with his friend and another award-winning songwriter Tony Wood. He said he wrote it about his childhood home and how the holidays made him feel. I was immediately connected. It reminded me of my childhood and growing up in England. I asked him if I can record it and you was very pleased with the outcome: )
5. If you had to choose one song that best captures the essence of your musical journey so far, which one would it be, and what makes it so significant to you?
A: I think Good Lovin’ would be the best one to capture the essence of my musical journey so far. It was an incredibly empowering song to write and sing. For the first time I felt like I found my voice and my internal power. I wanted to share that and encourage others to feel their own power as well.
6. How have your personal and artistic growth shaped your approach to songwriting and performance, and how do you continue to push yourself creatively with each new project?
A: I think I know when to get out of my own way now. Well most of the time lol I am always up for a challenge and love learning new ways and tricks on how to use my voice and vocals. My writing partner and I love to give ourselves different writing challenges. It really helps keep you open to new ideas and experimentation.
7. Can you tell us about any upcoming projects you’re currently working on and are excited to share with your fans and audience?
