INTERVIEW: ~9

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.
