Just in time for the warmer months ahead, things are already heating up for Jordane Jeremiah with her latest single, ‘Walk’.
This is definitely a tune you should be listening to this year, as Jeremiah debuts her lush vocals, delicate instrumentation and warming message of empowerment.
So, if you’re looking for that signature tune to celebrate your independence, identity and breaking through comfort zones then this is for you.
Taking influence from the likes of Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys and Amy Winehouse, Jordane’s powerful vocals oozes coolness alongside the souletic R&B production.
We took a moment and sat down with Jordane to get the down low on what her fresh new single is all about
Hi Jordane, how’s it all going?
I’m going good, some very busy and exciting times with releasing my debut single.
So to kick things off, how did you first get into music?
I grew up in a very music oriented family. It was always something that was in my life with family bands to singing in church. I was pushed into singing quite a bit from my parents as well and I naturally moved to love singing.
Tell us a bit about what people can expect from your music?
You can expect an alternative R&B sound. I see my music as a way of reflection and use of expression, so I really like the soulful emotive lyrics that capture a story and connect with people.
What is your new single ‘Walk’ all about?
It’s about leaving the relationships that aren’t allowing you to grow. It builds on the importance of being independent and making decisions that allow you as an individual to thrive in your own company without any reliance on others.
How was the tune created? Was it a challenging process?
In comparison to a few other songs I’ve written this was definitely a different process. I currently live in Alice Springs so I’ve had the time to really capture and craft the sound that I wanted. After writing the song, I sent the idea to my brother who produced it in Perth and then finally when I was back in Perth on a holiday, we recorded the song in a day and finished it there. So overall it was quite a long process but the actual song writing was a quick process.
Where do you get most of your inspiration from when writing songs?
I get all my inspiration from life experiences. Whether that’s things I have experienced or just in observation of the people around me, I think the most meaningful sounds come from a place of relatability and I find relating to my everyday experiences is my way of doing so.
Who would be your dream collaborator?
I could never choose one artist, there are so many amazing artists like Lauryn Hill, HER, Brent Faiyaz.
What’s your biggest piece of advice for those wanting to pursue music?
It would be to jump and just release the song you’ve been sitting on for a long time. No song will ever be perfect and I think that’s a very hard concept to overcome but I just see each song as being a part of a story and whatever the song ends up being, it shows a story and is basically a diary I’m reading out loud.
