Hi Alesia, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey there!! I’ve been great thank you for asking!!!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Ride”?
Yes!! Ride is one of our “feel good” tracks!!! Jon ( the producer) mentioned needing another element to the song! So I say and wrote my part and it came together like that!! I really love the groove!! Tone1y can sing his face off & Clova just added those smooth rhymes !!
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
It was more of a response to Tone1y’s verse and just sun our from there!
Any plans to release a video for the single?
We have been thinking about it!! Tone1y is from New Orleans, if we can get him it Texas for sure!!
How was the recording and writing process?
It was fun!! Ike I mentioned before the song was almost done I was the last puzzle piece & it was easy to fit in!!
How has Texas have influenced your music?
So much!! The way of living and the music influenced with dirty south style is what I grew up on!! You know UGK, Fat Pat, Rap – A – Lot and all!! They would sample the same music my mom had me listening to. The good old r&b, soul & funk!
What was it like to work with Tone1y and Clova, and what did they bring to the table?
It was great!! This song introduced me to Tone1y, but I’ve known Clova but never worked together. We just knew of each other due to reputation! I believe we all had the perfect verses over a tight beat!
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Oh yes!!! And it’s coming along fantastic! I can’t wait to show you guys what I have!!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
No release date at this time but I do have a title for it but that’s for another time 🙂
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes!!! I’ve been discussing this with my team about getting out and about!! Sometime for sure this year!!
What else is happening next in Alesia Lani’s world?
Just gigging & creating!! SXSW is around the corner so I’m preparing for that & finishing my album is my main plans!
