10 Questions With BIZZY [Q&A]
With a voice that pops immediately off the track, and witty lyrics befitting her roots as a Nashville-based writer, BIZZY has been very busy solidifying her own artist career, releasing a little over a half dozen singles in twelve months. Plying stories of teeth-clutching realism with melodic pop bouquets, it's been hard not to notice the Maryland native’s crafty rise and as always, we got curious to know more… about breakups, what to pair with her music, and what if felt like to get signed as an artist:
1. Who is “BIZZY”?
Ahhh that’s a big question. I think what sums it up the best is where the name “BIZZY” comes from. I was about 3 or 4, and FULL of energy. My dad would always say “you’re so bizzy” because I constantly had to be doing something all the time. Slowly but surely, the name just stuck, and everybody started calling me that. I chose it as my artist name because when someone calls me “BIZZY” I feel like it’s the truest version of me. Chaotic, confused, excited, and just stoked to be here.
2. What is ‘I Don’t Get Breakups’ all about?
“I Don’t Get Breakups” came about after going through a long drawn out breakup. I would go through phases of missing my ex to hating my ex, feeling every emotion in between. I started talking to my friends about what I was going through, and I was like a broken record. I just kept saying “I don’t get it, how could we go from spending every second together to literally never seeing each other again. It doesn’t make sense!” Eventually, I was able to put all my confusion and frustration into a song.
3. What kind of ex are you? Messy, emo, leave someone on read?
I’m for sure the ex that acts like nothing is wrong and I was never hurt, even though I’m a literal WRECK and crying myself to sleep every night. (Cue ‘I’d Never Tell You’)
4. Any collaborations? Who produced the track?
No collaborations on this track, although you can keep your eye out for some in the future ;) Brandon Meagher produced this track and also co-wrote the song with me! He’s produced most of my past songs and just really gets the sound I’m going for, he’s wonderful.
5. How does it feel to sign with Big Loud Rock?
Truly a DREAM. The team has been everything I could have hoped for and more. I have always loved group projects (hot take, I know) but I love working with other people. I think multiple minds are better than one, and If you can work together towards one goal, it’s like dynamite.
6. How’s your sound evolved since landing success in Nashville?
Oh my GOOODDNEESSS, it’s changed so much. I originally started as a country writer and slowly but surely found my voice in writers rooms and realized my melody’s and lyrics lend more to pop, which makes a lot of sense, because that’s what I grew up listening to.
7. Besides this excellent single, what else should we be on the lookout for?
TOUR!!! I’m on my first ever tour right now supporting the amazing band FRENSHIP. It has been such an awesome experience so far! And there also might be more music coming in the very near future :)
8. What's inspiring you right now outside of music?
The outdoors. I LOVE being outside. I feel like it puts me in my place in the best way. It makes me feel like a little kid when I look up at the trees. There is something so calming about it, and I feel like I always learn something new when I’m outside.
9. Food + drink best suited to enjoying your work?
So I absolutely love coffee but I can only drink decaf because me on caffeine is literal chaos. So I would say a decaf vanilla latte or matcha is my drink of choice. Food is usually avocado toast. Ha, I sound so basic, but it’s so good!
10. Musically, who is new but making all the right moves? Who are your current OnesToWatch?
I have been OBSESSED with Tommy Lefroy and Chappell Roan. They are just so authentic and unique in their sound and their look. I just love them.
