VENTS: Hi Allison, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
~9: Thank you! I’ve been having a magical year and wishing you the same. 🙂
VENTS: Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Experience 369”?
~9: Experience 369 is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. Every aspect of the song was designed with a wish for the listener to deeply feel something while listening. I tuned it to the Solfeggio Frequency of 528hz, which is said to be the frequency of the heart. It feels amazing!
VENTS: Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
~9: I was at a major crossroads in my life when I wrote this song. I had a big decision to make… Continue living a life where I was seen as successful but wasn’t truly happy or choose happiness.
VENTS: How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
~9: The video is also very special to me. After choosing to live a life based on joy, I ended up selling most of my belongings, and traveling the country with no particular destination in mind. I ended up in the Ozarks where I ‘found myself.’ The music video is a collection of clips and live streams from my travels. This was the first music video I’ve ever created 100% on my own.
VENTS: How was the recording and writing process?
~9: One of the reasons I love this song so much is how I wrote it. I was sleeping and these lyrics came to me in a dream. As soon as I woke up and opened my eyes, I ran to my whiteboard and wrote the 1st verse, it just flowed to me. I instantly opened up my MacBook, turned on Logic and recorded what I had. As I was listening to what I’d recorded for the 1st verse, the 2nd verse flowed out of me. I had the full lyrics written and recorded within an hour.
VENTS: As someone who has been working with other people in the industry – do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than working on your own?
~9: I take a slightly different approach when working with others. When working with others I really want their story and their unique energy to shine through so I spend a lot of time getting to know them. When working on my own projects, I focus on creating musical experiences that paint a picture in the listener’s mind of a world we want to live in.
VENTS: What role does Atlanta play in your music?
~9: Atlanta aka “Black Hollywood” is where it all started for me. Having so many talented musicians to learn from at a young age was the best education I could ever dream of. Having access to learn from multi platinum and Grammy winning producers was a gift I will always be grateful for.
VENTS: Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
~9: Definitely! I plan on releasing new music every 8 weeks so make sure to follow my social media profiles to stay up to date.
VENTS: Any tentative release date or title in mind?
~9: My next single “Cosmic rain Dance” releases on 1/1/2021 with my debut album “Law of One” tentatively scheduled for 9/9/2021.
VENTS: What else is happening next in ~9’s world?
~9: ~9’s world is magical as always. I released my first single “Unconditional” as a birthday gift to myself on 7/7/2020 and have been blown away by the support it’s received. Also, my life was blessed a million times over on 9/9/2020 when I had the honor of marrying my love of all lifetimes. Also, I plan on performing at some virtual concerts soon so be sure to follow me to stay up to date.
