Interview: "Famous" by Jennalyn
Q: We can’t get enough of ‘Famous’! Can you tell us what inspired you to write this song?
Jennalyn: Famous went through a lot of rewrites haha. It started off as an alternative/punk style anthem about being reckless. When I first wrote the line - "I'll figure it out when I'm famous" I was a little uncomfortable because it felt very arrogant but as the song evolved I knew I couldn't change it because it came from a very honest emotion. I'm so happy so many people have identified with it in one way or another.
Q: What first got you into music?
Jennalyn: I started singing onstage in church around 4!
Q: What is your favorite song off your recent EP? If you could only pick one!
Jennalyn: Hahaha it depends on what day you're asking me. It changes all the time but my current favorite is These Lights. We've been practicing the choreography for my show next month and it's really sexy and fun.
Q: If you could perform anywhere in the world, where would you pick and why?
Jennalyn: I would pick SNL probably or somewhere really unique. I saw Ludovico Einaudi's performance floating in the Arctic and was mesmerized. I've always wanted to perform in an abandoned power plant or something kinda industrial/futuristic one day. And I grew up in Seattle and so I've always wanted to play Key Arena or the Tacoma Dome on tour.
Q: Who are some of your biggest influences?
Jennalyn: My biggest influences so far have been Tove Lo, Rihanna, BANKS, The Weeknd and Billy Joel.
Q: What can we expect next from you?
Jennalyn: We're finishing up the next single right now and I'll be performing it live at my next show February 8th! I have some wild ideas for the music video so I'm aiming for a summer release.
