Your new single “Accident” truly shares the reality of heartbreak, it’s so incredibly well done. Can you share the story behind this new track?
QUIETLOVE: This song has had quite the journey thus far, let me tell ya. My friend Mike Bilenki and I wrote the song back in 2018 when I had just moved to Toronto. We wanted to write about the feeling of being a mistake and the emotional fallout that comes with it. Searching your girlfriend's ex just felt so relatable. We instantly fell in love with it, I’m so glad it’s made its way into the world.
When did your love for music begin? Did you always know you wanted to pursue being an artist one day?
QUIETLOVE: I think I’ve always wanted to be an artist/entertainer. Sounds cliche, but it’s true. I used to watch my favorite bands' tour DVD’s and dream of being in their shoes one day. Perform concerts for my parents in the living room. It’s always been in me.
If you could collaborate with any artist in the world, who would you pick and why?
QUIETLOVE: Definitely Charlie Puth, Timbaland or Benny Blanco. Pretty self-explanatory. 1. They’re all hit makers, and 2. I honestly think we’d create something special. They’re all so talented in their own ways.
Out of all your live performances, which would you say is your favorite and most memorable to date?
QUIETLOVE: So many memories, so many favorites. I got to perform at a TEDx event that was filmed for their YouTube channel with over 34 million subscribers. So wild. Playing Yonge-Dundas Square (the Canadian Times Square) in my city of Toronto was also a huge milestone for me. They all have their moments.
If you weren’t pursuing music, what do you think you’d be doing right now?
QUIETLOVE: I think I’d still be in a creative position… possibly in film/TV or a writer.
What do we have to look forward to from you the rest of the year? We’re so excited to hear more!! :)
QUIETLOVE: So much more. Music. Live shows. Make sure you follow me on socials to keep updated - @iamquietlove on all socials :)
