Hi Abby, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hey VENTS! I’ve been good, holding onto the summer weather for as long as possible haha
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Neighbour”?
Yes!! What would you like to know?
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I started writing the song with Darrelle London in 2016 on her back porch, eating burgers, we started talking about our neighbours- how we live so close to people but don’t necessarily always know or trust them.
Any plans to release any sort of video for the track?
A video was released with the track! Worked with Goliath Productions on it and Good Shepherd Toronto was featured in it! Good Shepherd is an amazing organization that feeds, clothes and provides shelter for Toronto’s most vulnerable. It was a really awesome experience!
How was the recording and writing process?
Since the song was written four years ago with Darrelle, it’s been fun to see it evolve over the past few years. The recording process was awesome! The producer, Andre Kaden Black and Co-producer, Tal Vaisman are also co-writers on the track, there was a clear vision and they did a great job bringing the song to life.
What role does Burlington play in your music?
Burlington has played a big role in my music journey! I feel thankful to live in a city with so much talent! The first time I’ve played a main stage so far was at Burlington Sound of Music Festival, last year, which was an unforgettable experience.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes there is some new material in the works I’m really excited about!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
The next tune will be released in September and it’s called ‘All I Wanted.’
Any plans to hit the road?
With Covid, it’s definitely been a different summer and playing shows have been put on hold for now.
What else is happening next in Abby J Hall’ world?
I’m slowly becoming really good at making dairy and gluten free cookies so a new recipe is on the horizon.
