INTERVIEW: Airy Jeanine
Hi Airy, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hi Vents! I’m doing fantastic, things are going well. Thanks for the interview.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Everywhere”?
“Everywhere”, is about a boy and a girl whose love for each other is so strong, they are unstoppable no matter what turmoil any season or day brings them. The great chemistry that they share bonds them together so well that no matter where they are, the two can imagine traveling and conquering the world together, and as happily ever after, they do!
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Producer/Songwriter Corey Chorus wrote this particular song, which was from a selection of songs that he had submitted to my team. When I heard it, I loved it, and we decided that I would record it. In the meantime, however, I am always working on writing my own music. But, I’m very happy with what I’ve been presented with.
How was the experience shooting the music video?
Doing the music video was amazing! I had so much fun doing the various scenes. The whole cast and crew are very talented, and were super nice during the shoot. It was a positive experience, although we had our moments with the weather being a bit uncooperative, but in the end, it worked out to our advantage. The overall experience was definitely memorable, and opened new awareness and doors for me.
Was there any pressure while working on this video after the success of your previous music video?
Not really. Working on the video, I did not feel any pressure at all. I was pretty confident that we would produce a quality video, so that took away any concerns. I love being in front of the camera, and making music videos lets me really connect with my music. I can visually express my emotions towards the song, which is natural for me in any situation.
How was the writing/recording process?
It was a collaboration of the producer-songwriter, myself, and the various engineers that came together very well. Like any song, I am always open-minded to learning when recording new music. In recording “Everywhere”, it was definitely a song that helped me learn new techniques that I can adopt in creating future music. I was able to express my fun personality in the recording process, as well as having a blast the whole way through.
What role does NYC play in your music?
NYC is such a powerful, vibrant, and energetic place, which correlates to my music. I also have performed numerous shows in the city as well, and will continue to do so in the future.
For this music video, NYC plays a role; we shot some scenes with the skyline in the backdrop, and others at Coney Island. We use the beautiful scenery to enhance the images that we were looking to showcase.
How has Ariana Grande influence your writing?
Ariana is successful at what she does, and I admire her for that. She is inspiring to me, and influences the songs that I write because I find her lyrics to be relatable, and romantic, which are two important writing themes for many pop songs.
Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
At the moment, I am releasing singles first; each song gives me an opportunity to build my fan base while I work toward an album. There is a possibility that I could release an EP as a part of the strategy to create a bigger buzz, and later create new songs in collaboration with different producers who would be contributing to a full-length album.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
The single, “Everywhere” will officially be for sale on August 1st! The song is available for presale on most digital download stores.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes, my management team is exploring touring possibilities here in the USA, and also worldwide. I am frequently doing live shows with my band in the New York metropolitan area, and planning to be doing do shows everywhere. (Pun intended).
What else is happening next in Airy Jeanine’s world?
Well, I spend most of my time working on new music whether it’s writing or recording. At the same time, remaining open for other entertainment and media opportunities that can further my career. I am excited about what’s to come. You can always see updates and new stuff at AiryJeanine.com, or my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @AiryJeanine.
