Interview: "Where the Light Dances" - Yamaree
Congratulations on all the success of your single “Where the Light Dances”! What is the story behind this song?
Yamaree: Thank you! It has been so crazy to watch the song grow since it’s release. I wrote this song after a three year break from music! It is a song coming from a a vulnerable place, questioning my purpose and my faith! I wrote it as a desperate cry towards the Lord for Him to show up in my life and direct me!
How did music find its way into your life? And what made you want to enter the Christian/Gospel genre?
Yamaree: Music has always been apart of me! I’ve been writing songs since I was 8 years old- I don’t remember a day where I didn’t write or sing something! It’s funny though, I never thought I’d end up in the Christian/Gospel genre…it just sort of happened at the right time!
How has the move to Charlotte treated you? And what inspired you to make the big step moving across the country?
Yamaree: Moving to Charlotte was the best and hardest thing I’ve done haha! It has been a stepping stone for my dreams which I did not expect. We moved primarily for my husband’s job. He does studio work for a large worship label out here which has been a huge blessing for my music opportunities as well!
Who would you say are your biggest inspirations when it comes to your music and songwriting?
Yamaree: I have SO many but the biggest inspirations I have are Tori Kelly, Amanda Cook and Noah Kahan!
What are a few items on your bucket list when it comes to your music career?
Yamaree: I would love to go on tour, that has always been my biggest dream! But also doing a duet with Tori Kelly is also at the top of my list
What can we expect next from you? I can’t wait to see what you have planned!
Yamaree: I am currently working on an album! I am very excited and proud of the songs I’m writing. This is the first album I have intentionally wrote for and it’s been really healing! I can’t wait for the world to hear!
