Hi Sydney, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’ve been really great! Lots going on right now so I’m staying busy.
Can you talk to us more about your song “Reckless”?
“Reckless” is really about being young and wanting to live out every moment with the best people in your life.
Did any event inspire you to write this song?
I wouldn’t say a single event, but there were definitely some people in my life at the time that I was always talking about doing crazy things with. I think all of those ideas really just manifested themselves into this song.
Any plans to release a video for the track?
Yes and I am so incredibly excited!
How was the recording and writing process?
I co-wrote this song out in LA with two really amazing people, but the song took us almost 9 hours to write. Despite it being the longest time I have ever taken to write something, after we finished the writing, everything else came together perfectly.
What role does New York play in your writing?
Growing up in NYC, I think I’ve learned to think out of the box and go wherever the wind takes me. It’s an eye opening place to be honest.
How’s your new EP coming along?
The EP is really great! The songs are done but I still want to keep working and see what else we can come up with.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
I am more focused on releasing some singles right now, but I am so excited for everyone to hear it all!
Any plans to hit the road?
No plans as we speak, but I’m hoping to do some shows soon.
What else is happening next in Sydney Jaffe´s world?
I’m going into my last semester of high school right now and I graduate in May, so School is really a huge focus for me right now! I’ve also recently turned 18 so I’m just trying to embrace that and work on my music and have fun with my friends and family.
