Toronto-based alt-pop singer/songwriter and producer, QUIETLOVE, recently shared the official music video for his debut single, “The Dream”.
“The Dream” is a breath of fresh air from a brand-new artist on the block, entirely self-written
and self-produced. Mixed by Jack Emblem [Daniel Caesar, Jesse Gold, Devan] and mastered
by multi-platinum engineer, Dan Weston [Shad, Classified, Tribe Called Red].
We had the opportunity to chat with QUIETLOVE about his debut single, what he hopes fans take from the track and what’s next.
Kat: Can you talk about the inspiration behind your latest single “The Dream”?
QUIETLOVE: I was having a heart-to-heart with a close friend and I said ‘I just don’t wanna lose myself to the process’, and I remember after I said it I knew I was onto something. That’s what sparked the song. Chasing a dream isn’t always roses, y’know.
Kat: What do you hope fans take from the track?
QUIETLOVE: I hope that the song inspires others that may be going through the same struggle to continue forward. Self-doubt and delusion is a part of the process. I hope they realize they’re not alone in feeling that.
Kat: What do you find is the most challenging part of your creative process?
QUIETLOVE: Lyrics, for sure. Melodies kind of flow through me, but finding the right words to match the emotions can be really challenging at times. Sometimes it will come to you in 20 minutes, sometimes it’s a puzzle that lasts for days.
Kat: What has been a career highlight for you so far? What have you learned along the way?
QUIETLOVE: Releasing my debut single as QUIETLOVE has been an amazing recent highlight for me. It was the reassurance I needed to continue forward with this.
Kat: What’s next?
QUIETLOVE: More everything. Keep your eyes locked on my socials @iamquietlove for more – I’m just getting started.
