Hi Sara, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Been doing well — slowly getting back into the swing of things. Changing some habits and way of being from this last year will take some getting used to but looking forward to more traveling.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Do I Have to Feel Everything”?
Written on the cusp of this new year, it traces the push and pull feeling of not knowing, circling around yet trying to move forward.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
The obvious tumult of this year, the unknowns, the overwhelming feeling that can bring.
Any plans to release any sort of video for the track?
No video as of now, but if inspiration strikes, perhaps!
How was the recording and writing process?
This song was written on the keyboard on New Year’s Eve 2020. It was recorded in the midst of the pandemic remotely between LA and Dripping Springs, TX with Dan Duszinsky, who I’m working with again on this album.
What role does LA play in your music?
Being so close to so many beautiful places, in nature and otherwise has been an inspiration and source of finding peace amid city life.
How’s your new album coming along?
It’s coming along well! Heading to Texas this week to work on it in person for the first time in over a year which is exciting. We finished up my last album there in Feb 2020 right before the shutdowns began so it will be nice to travel there again for the new record.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Later in 2021, title TBD!
What aspect of the unknown will you get to explore on this record?
That’s definitely a common theme in my writing — trying to move beyond the noise and move forward while working with that feeling of uncertainty.
What else is happening next in Sara Noelle’s world?
We’re working on Vol. 4 of a literary journal I edit called Lyrics as Poetry, which highlights artists’ lyrics and music writing from journalists. The plan is for that to be printed and released later this year as well.
