Qveen Herby Releases New EP “EP 8”: Streaming
- Former Karmin and singer-songwriter Amy Renee Noonan, aka Qveen Herby released her new EP “EP 8” on May 26th.
The EP contains 5-track, featuring singer-songwriter Durand Bernarr, who performed as vocals on “Self Aware”. Co-produced by her husband Nick Noonan. The EP is inspired by American rapper Missy Elliott and producer Timbaland.
"EP 8 is about to be so cute. EP 8 is inspired by Missy Elliott and Timbaland," Qveen Herby explained. "I don't know if you guys recall the early 2000s, but it was ripe for my favorite sounds -- that overly confident, happy, badass hip-hop with R&B choruses. Like she always had amazing features, amazing music videos. That's what EP 8 is inspired by. But of course it has that devious Morticia [Addams] energy that Qveen Herby always gives you."
- She told The Hype Magazine about creative process of her music, “I love learning. I’ve been taking Masterclasses online [masterclass.com], and find my creative process is most similar to Marc Jacobs and fashion designers. Every EP, or season, is different, but I start by opening myself to receive inspiration from anywhere. Things start flowing into my experience; it’s magical. I’ll see images on Pinterest or certain colors or themes showing up repeatedly. I build a mood-board, and listen to tracks from my producers. Melodies come to me in the bathtub or while I’m doing laundry. We cut gibberish demos, and I’ll refine the concepts and lyrics for a couple weeks. We cut final vocals and add arrangement bells and whistles. Shoot the album cover. Send the songs to trusted friends for feedback, and shoot a video for the top track. Design the merch and cosmetics collections, then sit with my mastermind group and plan the roll-out / marketing.”
