LYRICS:

 

Lend me your eyes
I need to make a disguise
Your touch it feels like the sky
Take me to tea
Oh we can sit by the sea
Need you to make me believe

 

Your heart’s better than mine
So where do we draw the line
Need you to come on back

 

Coz I just wanna be your lady
Be your crazy
Be your maybe
I just wanna be your lady
Be your maybe
Baby be lazy

 

I’ll wear a dress
Do you think you could invest?
Your time and spend it with me
So wear your best shoes
You run and I’ll sing the blues
New things I’m feeling with you

 

Your heart’s better than mine
So where do we draw the line
Need you to come on back

 

Coz I just wanna be your lady
Be your crazy
Be your maybe
I just wanna be your lady
Be your maybe
Baby be lazy

 

Lady
Maybe
Crazy
Lady
Maybe
Crazy

 

And I just wanna be your lady
I just wanna be your lady-ay
I just wanna be your lady-ay
I just wanna be your lady-ay
I just wanna be your lady
And I just wanna be your lady

 

 

Discuss how you find the sounds that fit your vocals.
As well as being an artist, I am also a producer and work with multiple artists so I have really come to know what suits my production and vocal style. I think that I have developed as an artist by working on my skills as a producer and have really learned how to craft songs to make the most of my vocals.

 

Tell us how you come up with ideas to create your lyrics.
Lyrics have always come very naturally to me, as it’s something I have always done. I have been writing my own lyrics since I was six years old. I first started songwriting by writing my own lyrics to songs I loved and then progressed from there. Lyrics and melodies come easiest to me and I don’t often have to be too strategic about those elements. I find that they naturally flow the best.

 

Discuss the recording process of this song.
This track had almost all of the elements recorded live. We recorded live bass, guitar, and even my co-producer Harry and myself recorded piano, brass, and all the Foley and production elements. We did most of it between our two home studios and had one-day recording at my old university studios to get the brass and piano recorded in a big beautiful room. I recorded the Foley by placing an old microphone in the middle of my rehearsal room and getting my band members to walk in circles talking around it. Harry and I also recorded pots, pans, and other household items to make all the percussion in the breakdown. It was the most fun I’ve ever had creating a song and I’m so grateful for all the contributors I had involved.

 

Tell us your experience recording the vocals.
Usually, I record my vocals at home by myself, but for this track I really wanted them to stand out so I took it to Harry to record in his space. I didn’t do very many takes but I really enjoyed having the energy of another person in the room to help me really bring out the emotion in my vocal delivery. Harry was amazing in hyping me up before each take to get the very best energy out of them. The big belt at the end of the track is actually the scratch vocal because no matter how many times I redid it, we just kept coming back to that very first take and loved it too much.

 

Tell us how you ensure your songs sound well.
I studied audio production at university and am quite the perfectionist with finalizing mixes. I make sure not to rush songs and to take my time to finish them to the best that I can.

 

State the best means of generating income in today’s music business.
I have personally found the best way for me personally to have a solid income is through my production work. I know a lot of people have different ways that they generate income in their own way but this is just the best way I have found for myself.

 

State the people involved in creating this song and their roles.
Elle Emery/The Letter Elle – Songwriter/Singer/Keys/Co-producer
Harry Fox – Co-producer/Mix Engineer

 

Session Musicians:
Callum Pask – Synth
Patrick Feagan – Guitar

Explain how you get involved in music.
I have been involved in music my whole life. It has always come so naturally to me…

 

State your favorite song and the reason.
My favorite song changes all the time but at the moment my favorite would be Lindsey Lomis – Feel. The production and songwriting are incredible and I show it to everyone because I think it’s incredible! The chorus absolutely smacks you in the face and is so strong.

 

Tell us your opinion on the use of digital effects on vocals.
I like using both digital and analog processing on my vocals so I love the creative digital effects…

 

Tell us the steps to take before going into the studio to record.
I don’t often go into a studio to record as I usually do everything from home. If I am heading into a studio, I make sure the demo has been completely fleshed out and all parts written/rehearsed/ approved before getting to the recording. I do a lot of pre-production work before actually recording to make sure I’m going to like all of the parts first.

 

Tell us if you see music as a rewarding career.
I think music can be a very difficult and isolating career but it’s also very rewarding. Being recognized for your art is an indescribable feeling and knowing people have enjoyed it and related to it just makes you feel whole.

 

Tell us what you do apart from music.
I am a full-time music producer and teacher so my whole life pretty much involves music in some way!

 

Elaborate on the song.
My new song, ‘Be Your Lady’ is ultimately about having confidence as a woman and feeling in control of your life and relationships. The song is set from the perspective of someone who has just met a new love interest. The lyrics are based on the lustful thoughts and scenarios that are often experienced at the very beginning of a new relationship. The song also touches on the insecurities and uneasiness of learning about a new person with the lyrics, “Your heart’s better than mine so where do we draw the line?” The chorus then quickly wipes away said insecurities and bursts into confidence with the main hook. This song is about embracing your femininity whilst also having the confidence to make your own decisions and make things happen for yourself. I just really want this track to make listeners feel as confident and happy as I do.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name.
My artist’s name came about by ordering a coffee. My nickname I go by is Elle and every time I ordered a coffee they would just write the letter ‘L’ instead. My partner thought it was funny and we would joke about it all the time and he came up with the idea of using it as my artist’s name.
