Hello Liv! Thank you for speaking with me today!
Thank YOU! Hope you're having a great day:)
Tell us about your latest release!
My most recent release is my single 'Holiday for Us.' I released it last December as a holiday special. I had been holding on to all of my music for so long and on a whim I decided to release that song like a week before its release date. Putting that single out definitely helped me face my fear of sharing my more vulnerable music with the world.
What was the creative process for it?
I honestly had just found an instrumental on YouTube that really resonated with me and freestyled how I was feeling in that moment. I normally produce my own music but something about GC's (the producer) work is so inspiring.
Who are some of your biggest musical influences?
When it comes to writing music, Ariana Grande's "thank u, next" album really inspired me to stop trying to mask myself in my music and to be more open and vulnerable. When it comes to producing, Finneas constantly inspires me as well as comforts me in my ideas. A lot of times when I'm producing, I want to make sounds with my mouth or use sounds I hear in everyday life and I know Finneas does that often in his music.
Who would be a dream collaboration for you?
It is a long, long list. I would love to write with Billie Eilish at some point, and getting the opportunity to work with Ariana Grande, Tommy Brown, Social House, Kehlani, Finneas, or Victoria Monet would make me ball my eyes out.
Do you have a mantra or piece of advice you carry with you that you like to pass on to other musicians?
Write about what you feel without judgment.
Any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for?
I have a lot of upcoming projects that I'm so excited for everyone to hear! They mean so much to me and I feel like they are, in a way, an extension of myself.
Please let everyone know where they can keep up with you and your music!
My music is available on all streaming & social media platforms! And check out my Tiktok, @iamlivbyrne; every time my follower count hits an angel number I leak a future release!
