Hi Amelie! Thanks so much for taking the time to chat with us today.

AL: Thank you so much.


1. SJ: Can you start by telling us about your background in music, when did you start writing music, and what inspired you?

AL:  I started writing very early in my life, and my love for it grew as I got older, and learned more instruments. Because I kept writing and writing, I thought eventually I would want to release the music I had. I was lucky enough to have very supportive parents who gave me the opportunity to record my first album, and now, I continue writing more in the hopes I can release more as I get older.


2. SJ: You just released the song, "See Me," on February 2nd. Can you tell us a little bit about this track and the story behind it?

AL:  This new release is definitely a huge step for me because of how new and different I think it is from the album. I knew I wanted the next song I release to be a bigger production than the raw, “stripped down” style of my other music. I had such an incredible time working with my producer and family friend, Carolin Pook on strings. I wanted to write about a broken relationship and the feeling of being “trapped”. I’m so, so excited for this release and hope others are too!

3. SJ: What was the writing process like for this track? Do you like to collaborate with other writers, or do you prefer to write alone?

AL: "See Me” was actually one of the first songs I wrote that did not start on guitar or piano. I remember hearing the melody of the chorus one day and running to record it. After that, I wrote the rest of the song and fell in love with how different it sounded from anything else I had. I always write my songs alone, but if given the chance, I always love to get advice or criticism. 


4. SJ: What did the recording process look like? How did working with producer, PK Variance, help you shape the story in the EP?

AL: The recording process was definitely difficult because this new song had the most production than any other song, I knew it would take a while before I thought it was good enough to release. I couldn't be more lucky to have worked with such incredible people who really helped this song come to life.

5. SJ: What is one song you wish Amelie Lucille wrote?

AL: One song I wish I wrote is Weird Fishes/Arpeggi by Radiohead.


SJ: What’s next for Amelie Lucille?

AL:  I can only hope that those listening to my music or my fans are just as excited as I am for the release of "See Me," and the release of a potential album towards the end of the year! I am really so grateful for anybody who takes the time to listen to my music. Thank you so so much! You’ll be seeing me soon!


SJ: Thank you so much for taking the time to chat with us about “See Me”! We can’t wait to hear what you create next!

AL: Thank you so so much! I’m incredibly grateful to have this experience and to talk to such cool people about my music!
