Break It Down Series: Confidential

When your debut single does really well on radio, your second song is equally as important, if not more so. It shows the music world that you can write more than one good song. So, it was really important to me to put a second song in the mix right away, so it could use the fire from Slow Burn to help it move forward. So when the idea for “Confidential” hit, I knew I was on to something.

ORIGIN OF THE TITLE: As with many of my titles, “Confidential” came out of a conversation. This one happened to be about the importance of privacy. “My private life is nobody’s business,” said my friend. And I agreed with him. I must admit, in the moment I did not have any thought of a song. In fact it was the last thing on my mind.

WHEN LIGHTNING STRUCK: As usual, it took about a week before the lightning struck. Somehow, that conversation found its way into my musical mind with the lyric “my frisky biz is no ones’ business but mine, so let’s, let’s, let’s get confidential.” Somehow the idea of getting confidential sounded sexy to me. I came up with the first verse and chorus and sang it for my producer Joe Vulpis and he loved it. “It’s an awesome one-two punch for radio!” I loved starting with the hook of the song, then launching into a verse. It makes for a great dance beat.

THE MUSIC FLAVOR: Because “Slow Burn” was a mid-tempo song, we wanted to go for a full uptempo with “Confidential.” So my producer hired Grammy nominated programmer Adrian Melendez (Alessia Cara and more) to give the song a real, programmed dance beat. As with all of my songs, we always use live musicians too and for this one we added in a rockin’ electric guitar to fill out the sound. This is still my favorite song to perform live because it always makes people get up and dance!
