-Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I would not say one specific experience was the inspiration but I did write the song based on so many stories and events from friends as well as myself.
-How was the filming process and experience behind shooting the video?
The video shoot was really great! The crew and the team were all incredible. I was able to be a part of the creative process and it is always exciting to have your song come to life in film.
-How was the recording and writing process of the song?
Writing the song was actually really fun. Jared Scharff and Major Seven and discussed the production and I just began writing the song. I usually hear the melody and just go from there. I wrote “Steal Your Heart” in about a day. Major Seven and I finished it up with recording the song and late Phillip Lassiter added strings .
-What role does Atlanta play in your musicianship?
I think Atlanta has helped me in my creative process because we have so many amazing musicians and varied genres. I have been involved in the Atlanta music scene for some time and have worked with so many gifted musicians and producers.
-Does the new single mean we can expect even more new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes! I have several songs ready to be released and am so excited to share them very soon. I plan to have another single release in late August.
-What other aspects of love and relationship will you get to explore moving forward?
I definitely like to create music that people can relate to. I have written songs that really seem to represent the steps of relationships from having a crush, being in love, sadness, and just being over it!
-Any plans to hit the road?
I love touring and performing! I have some live shows coming up and my team is discussing a possible tour soon.
-What else is happening next in Erin Kirby’s world?
I am working on the release of the next single and performing live. I am working on some community service projects and will hopefully be announcing those soon.
