Hailing from Arizona, Shae Brock is a singer and songwriter based in Los Angeles, California; just a while ago, she released a single called The Canyon, a nostalgia for a love that is fading.
Two people love each other, but they don’t dare to say it at first. Then, late last year, Shae Brock released an EP titled “Is it real or is it in my head?”
From side B: Canyon. The single, written at the start of the pandemic, has been hidden in Bullock’s notebook; she decided to make it the B-side of her latest EP.
The single, recorded at the Record Planet studios in Hollywood, blends the indie rock with super catchy vocals, creating her dream rock genre.
Some of her milestones include a collaboration single with Gucci Mane, which subsequently expanded into this new genre, surpassing one million streams via the Dreamers Club EP.
Now living in Southern California, she finds inspiration through deep connections, moments of indulgence, architecture, history, and the kind of nostalgia that appeals to her.
1- Where did you come from, where are you based now, and why?
I’m from Arizona. I am based in Los Angeles because the creative community is lovely.
2-When did you start your music career?
I don’t have a moment where I started because I’ve always created music and performed.
3-What is the message behind The Canyon?
Tell that person how you feel or wonder what would have happened.
4-Please explain the creative process of your recent EP and how the track came to life.
This track is a B Side I wrote during lockdown two years ago. It didn’t fit the EP because it had its own story and vibe.
5-Name three artists you’d like to be compared to.
My favourites are Stevie Nicks, I’ve been compared to Fiona Apple, a huge compliment, and Kate Bush is always a fantastic compliment.
6-What inspired you to start playing and making music?
Music is my first love. There is nothing that makes me feel so good and sometimes so terrible. Writing is an addiction.
7-Who’s your ideal musician to collaborate with and why?
Stevie Nicks because she is an incredible writer and has such a unique style. I love her, and we are both desert babies.
8-What would you do if you made a mistake during a performance?
Oh yes, I haven’t made one of those yet… phew. Kidding. I’ve forgotten lyrics many times or hit the wrong note. I usually say “haha” and keep going. That’s The beauty of life. It’s not perfect. It’s raw.
9-If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
Bring back buying hard copies and less relying on streaming. Don’t get me wrong, streaming is terrific when you want to jam a playlist and discover new artists.. but it’s not very pleasant for artists, as we all know. There is something special about working on a project and then sharing it with people through a hard copy.
10-What is your favourite song to perform?
Mary Jane is always a good one. I love people’s reactions to “you need her, but you want me” it’s always unexpected when someone first hears it. I remember when I wrote that line, I was like …. ok this song is conceptually perfect
