Vanessa Silberman Releases New Song “Something To Believe In”
- New York-based singer-songwriter Vanessa Silberman has released a new song “Something To Believe In”.
The song is her seventh single of 2020, releasing a song per month from her upcoming album since March.
Vanessa Silberman said of the song, “I rewrote ‘Something To Believe In’ about six times, The most I’ve ever re-written a song! A lot of the background vocals are from the first original demo version (rough vocals I recorded at like 8:30 am in the morning and something that came very instantaneous). I wanted to really evolve my writing style with ‘Something To Believe In.’ I continually want to make things exciting and not be afraid to try different things, like music inspiration as well as switch up my vocal range. During my live shows my voice naturally can get raspy, then I can alter it to a higher range but it’s a different animal to capture my lower range on a recording especially when I’m producing it myself and when I’m writing as I record.”
- She continued, “Sometimes it’s a challenging thing to get a good perspective when I’m doing the majority of everything myself (play everything, record, produce, mix, etc.). But luckily myself and my drummer Ryan Carnes have a really nice virtual collaboration. I just kept sending him different demo versions of the song until we got something that was really strong to build on. He also really helped me refine the drum parts and added some other creative input (like how to help it build more… or sometimes he’ll comment on a melody and suggest switching something around or say, ‘hey you gotta check out these vocals or drums on this song or listen to this record’ and it will totally be the right vibe for inspiration or idea). I think that’s the special and important thing about collaborating with people. It can really open you up more — expanded ideas and help see things differently! It’s really fun!”
