J Sutta Interview
How did you get into singing, when did you first start?
Actually, I used to sing all the time when I was little but one day my dad told me to stop and that I couldn’t sing. I must have been around 8 or 9. I don’t remember the details so much but I remember the feeling. It really crushed me. I buried the feeling and put my energy into dance which was very healing but still unresolved. One day, years later, I was signing along to a song quietly and this person I was friends with told me to stop and that I can’t sing. It brought back the exact same feeling…except this time it lit a fire in my heart and made me want to become the best singer that I possibly could.
So you had amazing success with your catchy house/pop hit ‘Forever’, can you tell us a little more how this song came about?
My super talented friend Will Peters and I started writing ideas about wanting a feeling to last….and it all started to take shape. The Code who is one of my favorite producers, came on board when he heard the vocal melodies and produced the track. It really felt right and so much love and good energy went into making that song. It was an organic and effortless process.
Can you tell us more about your new debut album “I Say Yes”?
It has taken us so much, time, blood, sweat and beers to put this together and we have had some amazing contributions from some incredibly talented people. I have become a really harsh critic of this album as it is my debut album, I want it to be as good as it can possibly be. Finally, we are almost ready to put it out. It has been such a true journey of self discovery as an artist with a lot of trial and error along the way. I must have recorded over 100 songs! For the most part is is dance/pop sonically with a few surprises. I have really enjoyed making this album and poured love into it..The album order tells a story and flows really well. I’m so excited to be putting it out soon!
What can we expect from you in 2017?
I think for the rest of this year we will be putting out non stop content to work our way into releasing the album. I love live performance more than any other aspect of music…or life for that matter haha! So I hope to be spending as much time as possible on stage in 2017 touring and performing songs from I Say Yes!
