Featured Artist #12: Introducing Loviet on Fresh Dose.
As the twelfth feature on the Fresh Dose. blog, we are introducing the ever so talent Loviet.
Each week Fresh Dose. will be featuring a new artist from our playlist on our blog to highlight great independent talent.
We asked Loviet three questions to help us understand a little more about her song Jawbreaker.
1: Choose 3 words that best describe you as an artist?
Passionate, genuine and rough around the edges
2. What was your inspiration for writing this record?
I’ve been able to process so much in the last year. My writing is usually a big therapy session with myself but sometimes I reserve those songs for only me, and once it’s out of my system I can go on and do co-writing sessions covering up those parts, only writing from the perspective that I want people to see. I felt like the last few years I’ve had to just feel out the rooms and figure out what tiny part of me can fit into those situations best and work in that moment, sacrificing some of myself along the way. So this record was a big step up towards not giving a fuck about the room, loosening up to bring all of me and my baggage to the table and see what happens.
It’s felt more and more freeing to lean into my own instincts, having a small but supportive team backing my decisions. I had to reverse engineer where I started out in music years ago playing my guitar alone in my room writing songs for the love of it. So I feel like these songs are just like that, back at the beginning and more of me and I’m really excited about where they go and what’s next from here.
3: Shout out section - who’s your favourite independent artist we should listen out for?
Jackie is an amazing artist based in Toronto Canada that I’m a huge fan of. Her voice, her guitar playing and her writing kicks ass. Everyone should go listen to her and get hooked on her songs the way I am!!
4: What’s your other favourite record on this week's Fresh Dose. Top 20?
Loved listening to your top 20 playlist this week!
So Sober - Valencia. This song really hit me while I was listening, beautiful vocals and writing. The whole playlist sounded great though with so many great artists.
