Singer ‘Girl In The Garden’ Talks About New Song “Casual Glances” In Exclusive Interview
We recently had the chance to chat with Girl in the Garden about getting started in the industry, her new single “Casual Glances,” and more! Check it out!
1.How did you get your start in the entertainment industry?
I decided I really wanted to start sharing my passion with people so I auditioned for my local talent show and ended up winning as well as being asked to sing backup vocals on another artists CD! This is when I fell in love with the studio. I then was selected to be in a showcase in LA where I made lots of connections and ended up in an artist development program. I then went back and forth between LA for acting and Nashville for music, where I recorded my first EP with some really amazing people! Now I perform a mix of originals and cover songs in my home town area about 6 times a month.
2.What was your first project?
My EP Polaroid was my first big project but I did sing backup vocals on a CD a few years ago.
3.What is your new song “Casual Glances” about?
Casual Glances was a phrase that really stuck out to me and was a fast song for me to write. It came from all those times you have a mutual liking for someone else and everyone knows it, but nothing ever happens and you’re in that frustrating middle ground of not being just friends but not being together. I was little agitated by this when I wrote the song which brought out some sass in me.
4.What was the recording process like?
I worked with my producer Matt and my lyricist Kayliann. The first thing we would do when we got to the studio would be to have a conversation about our moods that day and what vibe we thought we could really pull out of our emotions. Then Matt, would start messing with some instruments and rhythms while Kayliann and I would start building the lyrics. We would constantly be building off each other and adding input to morph this music into the sound we wanted. Everything really just happened all at once. Sometimes we would record a part of the vocals before we even finished writing the song! Everyone of the seven songs on the Polaroid EP were each written and recorded within one day. By the end of the week we were exhausted! One of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had.
5. How is it different from your other music?
This was a very big change for me because at home I had just been messing around with covers and my acoustic instruments. Very laid back and relaxed. In the studio I got this sort of adrenaline with the headphones and the music pulsing threw me and I could just close my eyes and pretend to be a pop star.
6. What is your favorite part about creating and sharing your music?
My favorite part of sharing my music is hearing how it really does affect others. One of my friends told me that my song More Than Temporary became her newly engaged sister and her fiancés song. They even wanted to see if I could come to the wedding! Stories like these are really what makes me want to write and create more.
7. Who are your musical inspirations?
Selena Gomez has been my idol ever since I was in elementary school. She’s just an all-around amazing person. Some of my biggest inspirations for my EP were Halsey, Bebe Rexha, Lorde, and Clean Banditt. Although lately I have been really digging Billie Ellish and her more relaxed, almost haunting tone.
8.Are you working on any other upcoming projects at the moment?
I’m constantly writing down ideas and have started some new originals on the keys. I’m also focusing on meeting as many people as I can to expand my relationships in the industry and taking every opportunity possible no matter how big or small.
9.Where can fans purchase or stream your music?
Fans can find my music on Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify, and SoundCloud.
10. What are your social media accounts?
All my social media accounts are under the name Girl In The Garden Music and have my EP cover as my profile picture.
