- 7Chariot Premieres Debut Song “Ricochet” on SoundCloud
- Nashville-based singer-songwriter Claire Wilkinson, aka 7Chariot has released a debut song "Ricochet" via 0E0E. The 20-year-old singer is from Nashville,Tennessee, but it's not country music. The track is alt-pop in synths including rhythmic chorus.
She met Kesha‘s mom Pebe Sebert when she started to write song. Since then, she learned writing from her and performed some sessions.
Finally, she decided to pursue music as a career. Her name 7Chariots comes from a tarot reading performed by her Grandmother at the start of her careers.
She explains about the debut song;
"'Ricochet' is extremely refreshing as a first single because it came about in such a unique way creatively. The “dum da da dum” sample of my voice and the drum loop throughout was the first thing we put down when my cowriter/producer Josh Monroy and I walked into the studio. I am not usually one to write like that. I almost always have a hook idea, verses, or a chorus for all my sessions. We ended up writing the entire song from those two little loops; it happened very quickly."
- She added her creative process;
"My creative process differs a little depending on how I feel, although I typically have a title or rough concept to start on for every session. Sometimes I even have a verse and chorus written already, it just depends on the day. I find that I am very lyrically driven, and I will often write my melodies around certain key lyrics that I really love. That being said, I also enjoy pushing myself to do things differently which is sort of what happened with “Ricochet”. I hate the idea of stagnation or sameness in music, so it’s important to shake things up every once in a while."
