I’ve been great! Been looking forward to this release for quite a while and it’s finally here .
Can you talk to us more about your latest EP Angel?!
I started the collaboration for this EP with producer Dom Morley last year. We first started working on Mechanical Heart (track 2) and recorded that just to see how we worked together. It went seamless and I was in love with the sound he was producing in which we built together. I wanted this to be different than my other releases in the sense that I wanted it to be a more inspired sound . So he had me spend a lot of time listening to different sounds from different eras that I wanted to use on the album and that I thought fit who I was. As each song was recorded I felt it was built by us and not so much just thrown into the air to let someone make a track for you.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this EP?
They were all written at different periods of time, but they were following the same theme. I was exposing the holes in humanity and touching on subjects such as human connection lost , and even suicide because I found myself in a moment in time that these were happening more so than ever, and I wanted to talk about it , so we can connect and be aware of it and maybe even help someone.
How was the recording and writing process?
It was beautiful. I wrote the songs while I was living in the south of France for three years. I was a bit secluded , but it was really great for my songwriting and it gave me the peace of mind and space to be creative which I didn’t always have. A lot came out of that period.
And the recording process was really smooth. Dom I loved because he was really tuned into what he needed me to do, to get the right feel for the song and make it impactful. Plus, he is such a nice person and communicates effectively so I could absorb what he’s saying and adjust.
What role does Southern California play in your music?
My music has an underlying dreaminess to it . Plus, I am drawn to cinematic music and have been told some of it would be perfect for a sound track to a James Bond movie . Wouldn’t that be cool?!
What was the most challenging aspect of this EP?
To have to wait !! from the time I recorded it until when my fans could hear it . Total torture lol.
Any plans to hit the road?
I have a couple shows in Los Angeles lined up ahead but a full tour is definitely a goal.
What else is happening next in Natasha Jane Julian world?
Building up a live show with my newly formed band and connecting with my local fans. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a home base but I’m back home now! And of coarse writing more songs for 2020 . But I’m looking forward ti the holidays for a bit of family chill time.
