Dama Juda – young [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words.

Adaptive, piercing minors, and provoking lyrics

What made you use a lofi beat in “Young”? Tell us a few things about your creative process in general.

I love lofi. It’s relaxing and simple, yet creative. It allows my mind to wander and create more. The beat itself was created by a producer in a musician group I am involved with online. He’s got a cool sound and when he sent me the track, I immediately knew I could write lyrics to it. And here’s the final result!

Your music is definitely melodic driven. Tell us your favorite melody you wish you have composed yourself.

Debussy is so unique in his melodies and note composition. His sound is everything I want, adaptive, piercing minors, and provoking. How many emotions do you have when you listen to a Debussy piece? It’s incredible how he takes you through a series of emotions and not one word is spoken.

Do you like the idea of collaborating? Is songwriting a lonely process?

Yes, in fact “young” was my first collaboration. It was eye opening to see how collaborative work can inspire you, sometimes even more then when writing alone. Songwriting is not a lonely process. The mind has many voices, lol. I’m just trying to make sense of my experiences when I write.

What was the best film you have watched during the quarantine?

Interesting question but nothing stands out. I’ve recently started some TV series though that I’ve really liked. House of Cards, Last Kingdom, Timeless, Queen’s Gambit, Ozark, and Survivor.

What is the most useless talent you have?

I can pick things up with my toes

One last thing we should know about you?

I believe God is a Woman

Thank you!
