Hi Alexandra, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hi! thank you so much, I’ve been great, I appreciate the opportunity to talk with you guys!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “In Love With Love”?
This is my 5th song I’ve done. It’s a lot more “poppy” than my others. I really love the idea behind this song, being in love with this idea, and feeling of love, and not the actual person.I feel like it’s the most honest I’ve been about myself, with my music, and I feel like so many people can relate to it as well. I also like how detailed it is, like I can just picture everything that’s happening in the song. I will also be using part of the proceeds from this song to donate to a charity. I am not too sure which yet, but I’m thinking maybe local music programs for schools, or there is one in particular I really like called Beauty 2 The Streetz, so I may actually do both.. The last song I did I donated to breast cancer research in honor of my mom who recently passed away. I was so glad I was able to do something like that with my music.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
It was inspired by every relationship that I’ve had like this,which is alot haha. I put different small stories of each relationship into it.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
I would love to, but have not started working on it, as of yet.
How was the recording and writing process?
I wrote it with Brooke Tomlinson, she’s amazing at helping me put my ideas together, and helps bring out the best in every song I’ve worked on with her. We actually wrote this song over facetime, since I don’t live in LA anymore, and it actually worked out pretty well. I recorded it with Andrew Gomez in Nashville.
What made you want to go for a much pop direction with this song?
I’ve always liked this genre, but felt like I needed to kind of set myself apart more before. I feel like it has that kind of electro-pop sound as well, like my others, but just not as much.
What role does Nashville play in your music?
I went to Nashville to work with Andrew Gomez on the production/recording/etc. He really brought out the feelings that I wanted for this song.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than working on your own?
I definitely think 2 heads are better than one. I feel like everyone has a different approach, as well as different ideas of things, and it’s always good to bounce ideas off each other.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes! I should have another one coming out right behind this one. It’s a song about being closer to closure, and I will also be donating a portion of those proceeds as well.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
For ‘In Love With Love’ it will be out Oct. 31st, on all platforms. My next one, I’m not too sure as of yet, but you can follow me on social media for updates.
Any plans to hit the road?
I would love to!! But at this point, not yet, I am currently just doing local shows, as well as some in LA.
What else is happening next in Alexandra Fresquez’s world?
I am currently auditioning to be on a show about musicians, so I’m really excited about that, and am going to final casting this month. So fingers crossed! My sister and I are also thinking about starting a music blog, which I think would be so fun to do. Right now I’m working as an RN at a surgery center, just spending time with family and friends, and working on music. I also have a show coming up her in New Mexico October 10th, hoping to see alot of people there!
