Hey Tess!! We are so excited to be premiering your new single!!! Can you tell us what this song means to you?
Thank you so much for sharing it! I wrote “Say It” about a friend who I lost earlier this year. We’d drifted apart and I hadn’t seen her in years. We had a complicated relationship, and I often thought of reaching out to her to tell her all the things I wanted to say. But I never had the chance, and now I dream about the things I wish I could say. “Say It” is about speaking your truth before it’s too late.
What’s been your reaction to the fans anticipation for your new single?
So far, when I shared the lyrics a lot of people have told me that they really relate to the story and meaning behind it. I’m excited to see what people think when they hear the full song!
How excited are you to get this single out into the world?
I can’t wait! This one means a lot to me.
Do you have any other release plans for 2020?
Yes! I have 3-4 more songs in the works for 2020.
What do you hope your supporters will think of the new music?
When people write to me that my songs were meaningful to them during hard times, it’s incredibly rewarding. So I hope my music uplifts people and makes them feel more comfortable being who they really are.
How do you want your relationship to be like with your supporters?
I love having a personal connection to people from all over the world who listen to my music. I try to connect with them through Instagram Live for example, and I love getting to know them.
What’s something your fans don’t know about you?
I also lead a nonprofit initiative that focuses on gender and racial equity in the technology space. I am really passionate about social impact and social justice causes.
What do you want your fans to know if they ever see you in public?
Come up and say hi 🙂
What do you want your message to be towards your fans? What do you want your fans to take away from your music and shows?
YOU matter, your voice matters, and don’t listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.
What’s one word you would use to describe what your fans have allowed you to accomplish?
I wanted to be a singer when I was 12 but I put it away for years. In 2018, I started to get back into it and realized the dream was dormant inside still. I’m so grateful to all my fans for listening and supporting my journey and finding my dream again.
Is there anyone in the music business you are dying to meet?
Childish Gambino. Incredibly creative and multi-talented musician, producer, actor, DJ and more.
Why do you think social media is so important for artists like yourself?
To connect directly with fans and build communities around the music.
What would you say is your biggest dream/goal right now?
I can’t wait to play live again, I miss it. Until then, I have set up a bedroom studio and am creating more than ever. I am excited to share some of these new projects in the works….
Any last things you want to tell your supporters?
I’d love to hear what you all think of my new song Say It! It’s out July 31 on all streaming platforms! Stay safe out there and I am looking forward to connecting with you all- find me @tessposnermusic on Instagram and Facebook.
Thank you for taking the time to do this interview with us 🙂
