Can you talk to me about your latest single, About You?
My Single, About You, is a song about a girl that’s really into a guy and just can’t seem to get him out of her head. Everything about him is perfect to her and she hopes he gives her a chance.
Did any event in particular, inspire you to write this song?
I co-write a lot of my songs. I prefer to co-write my songs until I feel totally comfortable writing them on my own. Everything I do regarding my music is a learning experience. I’m a growing artist, and this is my first time releasing music. So, everything is new to me, and I’m just loving the experience. I love all aspects of the music and the music production process, the song mixing process. I take part in it all.
Do you plan to release a music video?
Yes. I do plan to release a music video. But I’m not sure when that will be. My management team determines all the release dates. So I will definitely update you when I find out.
How was the recording and writing process?
The recording and writing process was a great experience. I’ve been fortunate to get a lot of studio experience, because I started recording when I was 14. But at the same time, every time I work in the studio, I learn so much more. So, I just want to continue to grow as an artist.
Does the new single mean we can expect new material?
Yes! Definitely! We are always writing and creating new material! So yes, there will be more!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Right now, we are unsure of a release date. My management team and I are discussing things, taking our time, and evaluating everything. At this point we are waiting for possible tour, and/or label. So, basically, we are in negotiations right now. After that point we will have a release date in mind. Hopefully it will be soon!
Any plans to hit the road?
Not quite yet. I plan to record more material before I tour.
What else is happening in Janelle Brown’s world?
I just graduated from High School last month, and I’m preparing for college. I really want to have fun this summer and hang out with my friends, go swimming, go to concerts, and go to the movies. Also, I work part time at an Urgent Care center. I’ve always been interested in pursuing a career in either the medical field or engineering. One of my passions is seniors and poverty awareness and issues that affect the senior population. I volunteer at a Senior nonprofit organization that addresses and combats some of these problems. It is sad, but senior poverty has become a serious problem which affects the senior’s living conditions as well as their lack of adequate food and suitable living quarters.
