Gwyn Love | Thread Official
Gwyn Love’s new single quickly caught my attention with its efficiency and its melodies. It’s a good pop record that has a great production and a catchy hook. I couldn’t ask for more.
I am only discovering her but I can’t wait to hear more releases. Thank you so much Gwyn for the conversation.
“glow’d up” is now available worldwide.
Introduce yourself – what’s your story?
I grew up in a super small town in Oklahoma with eight siblings. I never felt like I fit in there and music was my savior and my escape. When I turned eighteen I moved to the city to pursue a degree in music and ended up getting signed to a label. Here we are!
When did you start writing songs?
I started writing songs officially when I was 11 but I’ve been staring out the window in the car singing about the trees and stuff since I was 5
When did you start singing?
Probably around 5.
At what point did you know you were good at what you were doing?
My mother always hyped me up and loved my songs so that was pretty motivating. I think the moment I knew that I maybe had something special was when I performed a song I wrote at an open mic night in college and it was a super cheeky, funny song and everybody was dying laughing by the end. I won the open mic night:)
When did you decide to become an artist and release your original music?
I’ve always wanted to, but when I found a good producer in college and had a clear plan of what kind of music I wanted to make is when I knew it was time
Who was the first person to ever believe in you?
I would say my mother first, but second was my music teacher in college. She really kept the dream alive for me and always showed my songs to her husband and told me how much she and he loved them.
What biggest lessons have you learned since the beginning of your career?
To not focus on the negative things people say. It really hit me hard at first, but I’ve grown some thick skin
“glow’d up” is your new single – what’s the story/inspiration behind this single?
Basically my ex hit me up when I was in the recording studio and jokingly sang “all my exes keep hittin’ me up” and Louise Burns was like “you should make that a song”, so I did
Could you describe the songwriting/production process for this single? Who helped you create it?
My boi la+ch slayed the production on this track. It hardly took any time at all actually it came so naturally. I enjoyed writing this song so much. These cheeky type songs are my specialty, they make me laugh
What did you feel when writing this song?
I was laughing my ass off and felt extremely empowered.
What can you tell us about the music video?
Jackie Radinsky directed the video in LA and it also makes me laugh. He seemed really proud of it and I am as well.
What’s the hardest part about being an artist? And what is the best part?
The hardest part is putting myself out there for criticism. It always feels very personal because these songs are a part of me, they are my art, my soul, my feelings. The best part is getting to hear myself grow in songwriting throughout the years and also like putting myself out there and people responding really well is super rewarding
What are your thoughts on today’s music industry? If you could change one thing, what would it be?
I know TikTok is great for artists and a lot of people find their music on there, but personally I wish that wasn’t the main source of people finding their music because I don’t think I’ve fully caught onto the TikTok game.
In your opinion, what would make the world a better place?
If people minded their own business and supported each other. Negativity is not a vibe, keep it to yourself.
What message do you want to deliver to the world?
I’m just here to make people smile 🙂
