CRYDANCING

"THERE ARE FEW THINGS I LOVE MORE THAN A GOOD CRY. MAYBE A GOOD TURKEY SANDWICH. BUT I REALLY BELIEVE IT IS IMPORTANT TO LET YOURSELF FEEL EVERYTHING- THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE HIGHS, THE LOWS. YOU CAN’T GET TO THE OTHER PEAK WITHOUT GOING THROUGH THE VALLEY FIRST. THERE IS A WAY TO MAKE EMPOWERMENT OUT OF SADNESS, AND THIS SONG WAS MY EXPRESSION OF THAT. ITS MY PARTY I CAN CRY IF I WANT TO!”

UNTIL

THIS TRACK IS A REFLECTION ON EVERY HEARTBREAK I’VE EVER HAD AND HOW THEY CHANGE YOU AND THE WAY YOU APPROACH LOVE AGAIN FOREVER. I WROTE AND PRODUCED THIS ONE ON MY OWN, WHICH I AM REALLY PROUD OF.

ONE THAT GOT AWAY

THIS WAS ONE OF THOSE RARE SONGS THAT IS SO SIMPLE, MAYBE NOT EVEN THAT ORIGINAL, BUT JUST FELT SO GOOD AND RIGHT. I PRODUCED THIS WITH HELP OF MY FRIEND JASON WU (RABITT) AND THAT SWEET SECOND VERSE FROM MIKE.

DATING MYSELF

CRYDANCING HAS A LOT OF SONGS WHERE I GOT TO LEAN INTO MY SENSE OF HUMOR AND HAVE FUN. THIS WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE FIRST SONGS I WROTE IN THAT SPACE. I HAD SO MUCH FUN WRITING AND PRODUCING THIS WITH NOAH SISK AND GAZZO.

IBTC

“IBTC" WAS A WILD RIDE WHERE I GOT TO EXPERIENCE WHAT “GOING VIRAL” WAS ABOUT WHEN I PUT IT ON TIKTOK. THERE WERE SO MANY FUN VERSE REMIXES AND MILES’ WAS AN OBVIOUS STANDOUT, SO HAVING HIM ON THE REMIX WAS REALLY FUN. GAZZO HELPED WITH REMIX PRODUCTION AS WELL.

COME OVER

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT EARLY 2000S STYLE POP MUSIC, AND THIS SONG WAS A REALLY FUN CHANCE TO USE THAT STYLE WHILE ALSO SHOWCASING MY SENSE OF HUMOR. DANIEL WEBER, MAX HERSHENOW AND I HAD A BLAST WRITING IT AND THE CONCEPT/HOOK WAS ACTUALLY FROM MY CREATIVE DIRECTOR, JUSTIN PAGANO.

CALIFORNIA QUEEN

I HAD A PRETTY EPIC HEARTBREAK WHEN I FIRST MOVED TO LA, WHERE I HAD STARTED TO CONNECT A LOT OF THIS NEW PLACE WITH THIS NEW PERSON. WHEN I WAS NO LONGER WITH THIS PERSON, I FELT VERY ALONE AND DISCONNECTED IN MY OWN CITY. IT CONNECTS TO “CRYDANCING” WITH A SIMILAR EMOTIONAL EMPOWERMENT. I WROTE THIS WITH MY FRIEND RYAN FEINBERG AND PRODUCED IT WITH GAZZO.
