INTERVIEW: Presley Tennant

Hi Presley, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

I’ve been great. I’ve been extremely busy focusing on my music, getting ready to release my upcoming songs and music videos.

Can you talk to us more about your new single “BFF”?

My new single “BFF” is about someone who you thought you were close to but they turned out to be someone completely different and is not a true friend…my best fake friend.

Did any event inspire you to write this song?

I had a few experiences that inspired me to write this song, but there was one instance that really stood out.  I thought that this person and I were really close but then it turns out they were talking behind my back and not being what a true friend should be.

How was the filming experience for the upcoming music video?

The filming experience was a blast! It was awesome being with all my friends and seeing my song come to life.  I have a great team who really worked hard to make this a fun experience for all of us.

How was the recording and writing process?

Writing “BFF” with writer, Well Written was a lot of fun. I love to write by myself, but it’s even better when you have two people to share idea’s with to make the song the best it can be.  Recording the song was definitely my favorite part! I love being in the studio and getting to try different things with each and every song.

How has your dancing background influenced your music and the other way around?

I feel like having the ability to dance while singing takes my music video to the next level.  I feel the high energy helps it connect with more people keeping them engaged and wanting to learn the dance moves.  And I love to write & record music that I can dance too.

What role does LA play in your music?

LA is a huge part of my music. Even though I don’t live there, I am there almost every day! It’s like my second home.  And knowing what most of my peers are listening to and dancing too.

Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – hows that coming along?

Yes we are planning on releasing a EP in early 2018.  As of right now, we will be releasing a couple more singles over the next 2-3 months.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?               

I believe the goal is to release the EP February – March 2018 and the title is probably going to be a surprise.  We do have one title currently in mind.

What personal experiences are you exploring on this record?

I like to keep my songs true to myselfwhile still having people relate to them.  So I like to write songs about the experiences that people go through such as; fake friends, crushes, overcoming things that don’t make you happy, being empowered, etc.  I’m also an ambassador for LA Sparks #We Are Girls Campaign, which inspires me to write about women/girls empowerment.

Any plans to hit the road?

Yes there are plans for a variety of shows and upcoming performances.  We are now working on dates & locations.

What else is happening next in Presley Tennants world?

I’m releasing more singles and music videos in the very near future…so make sure you follow my social media updates.
