Indie songstress Suzy Q remakes her idol Minnie Riperton's classic hit "Loving You," with production support from veteran producers Carvin & Ivan.
In a short conversation with Singersroom regarding the premiere, Suzy touched on several topics including her inspirations, her upcoming project and more:
On Covering "Loving You" and Her Creative Process: Well I recently signed with Cory Taylor (Management), who is over at RnB Spotlight, worked with SWV, and also Meelah (702 former lead singer). He had me go in with Carvin & Ivan, and they suggested we do this remake because I cover this song during live performances. The inspiration behind "Loving You" is simply Love. Growing up, I was exposed to music at its best and one artist in particular stood out because of her angelic sound; the beautiful Minnie Riperton. I was drawn to her effortless ability to spill melodies from her soul the way she did thus my new single being a remake of her art. The creative process was nothing short of amazing given I was able to channel her finesse while staying in my zone.
On Upcoming Project: My upcoming project is shaping up to be one of class, glamour, soulful yet youthful and playful designs (music). I'm eager to welcome everyone into my world. My lanes are filled with pearls and gems so I'm inviting all to take a stroll my way :). I'm in the studio now with Carvin & Ivan. Also, looking to go in with Kwame, and Rock Wilder.
On Her Inspirations: My music muses are the great Aretha Franklin, Minnie Riperton, The Clark Sisters, The Wade Girls (My aunts) to name a few. I'm drawn and ignited by life, color, beautiful people and eclectic sounds. My mind spills of musical abstract art. It's a second language.
On Her Sound: My sound is a composition of many things working together to form musical matter. Music heals and my voice, I'd like to describe as somewhat of a "Vocal Drug."
