Pride month is here and Looseleaf is celebrating by releasing their new single, CONFETTI. This catchy tune fuses electro and indie pop styles, underlined with inventive hooks that will make your heart smile.

 

CONFETTI emphasizes the importance of loving who you are while honouring past and present trailblazers who have paved the way for a more colourful tomorrow. Whether you’re gay, straight, bi, trans, fluid, or undecided…this song celebrates you because at the end of the day love is love and Looseleaf is proud of their community…

 

LOOSELEAF is Anthony Marone and Wesley Edwards. They started in 2013, writing vibes in their tiny 200 square foot apartment in Hermosa Beach, and landed in New York City for their latest creations.

 

Looseleaf mixes indie and electro-pop, infused with quirky beats and warm vocals. Their latest single Confetti celebrates pride, love, and community. Confetti is available on iTunes, Spotify, and all major platforms.

Share your life story with us.

Our story begins in 2010, where our mutual love for music was founded in the heat of Texas during the summer within the catalogs of The Beatles discography. Still a major inspiration for our music today, we would listen to The Beatles on repeat, slowly growing a fondness for one another and solidifying our combined roots in the world of music.

 

As time passed, and our relationship flourished, we began to intertwine our personal music libraries, finding common ground in electro/indie pop.

 

Then, on the beaches of Hermosa Beach in southern California, Looseleaf was born to the tune of a ukulele. Our sound has developed and grown over the years, guiding us from coast to coast, and settling in New York City today.

List the names of those that have supported you so far in your music career and use this opportunity to thank them.

We’ve been navigating the music industry on our own for a couple of years now.

 

Being unsigned, we’ve had the opportunity to try new things and grow an authentic brand without the permission of anyone.

 

It has been an unbelievable experience letting our closest friends and family hear the sounds our souls make.

 

We are fortunate to have an extraordinary support system surrounding us, and those who have been on this journey with us from the beginning know who they are. We are eternally grateful for their love and support, as it keeps us climbing even during the hardest of times.

Narrate your experience while recording in the studio or while touring.

Touring is a whirlwind of an experience. While we haven’t taken our personal music on tour, we’ve been fortunate enough to have taken our careers in musical theatre on the road. Seeing the country, learning new cultures, performing, and meeting new people is something that we both absolutely love to do, and we both plan to take our music on new adventures in the future.

 

The recording is one of our favourite things to do. We have our own personal studio in our apartment in New York. The spectrum of emotions we’ve felt in the studio is enormous, as it can be time-consuming, creatively exhausting, painfully tedious, repetitive, and overwhelmingly frustrating while also being the most liberating experience we could have together. The sheer endlessness of our creative boundaries is challenging and invigorating to navigate, but once you find the right chord with the right beat with the right hook, the bliss can be all-consuming, making the process that much more worth it.

Discuss your songwriting.

Songwriting is not a cut and dry process for us. Sometimes Wesley can write beautiful lyrics that spawn a great melody.

 

Other times, Anthony can produce an interesting beat that influences a catchy hook.

 

We have to listen to each other, and let the music find its way by bouncing ideas off one another.

 

The most important thing is to take constructive criticism and grow with the process.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your future projects.

2019 has proven to be a very busy year for us with releasing our full EP and a single before the summer. We’re hoping to release at least one or two more singles before we begin developing our next album.

Tell us what you are doing to increase your fan base.

By being unabashedly ourselves! We can only hope that the fans of our music are not only on this journey with us because they enjoy our product, but because they know and like who we are as artists and people, both inside and outside the studio.

 

We want people to know that by tuning in to our music, you are getting a look into our relationship, our quirks, our flaws- our humanity.

 

While we put all of ourselves into our sound, our music is a culmination of everyone we love, everyone we interact with, and all the beautiful people who influence us.

 

By creating a community, a world surrounding our music, we’ve had an awesome opportunity for us to get to know not only who is listening, but why they are listening too!

.

.

.

Tell us that point in time you wanted to give up on your music career.

The market is saturated. Art is everywhere. The truth is that some other artists have more songs, more fans, more streams, and thusly more people who believe in them. Doubt fills our hearts often, but there is absolutely nothing in this world we would rather be doing.

 

We’d take every ounce of pain that comes with creation than sit on the sideline and watch someone else paint our world for us. To quote Anthony’s brother in law, “The joy has to be in the journey because you don’t stop living once you’ve made it.”

.

.

.

Go into detail on how you make your instrumentation or melody.

Because we live in New York, the sounds of the city permeate through our walls every day. Even when it’s silent, it’s not. Because music is natural and embedded within all people, we try and listen to the sounds our emotions make, starting with one note and building from there. There is no process – it just has to come naturally.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your complete understanding of music licensing.

With a degree in Arts Administration from Wagner College, Anthony has a full understanding of music licensing and copyright, having taken intensive courses on business law, management, and economics with a combined concentration in music, art, and theatre.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite genre of music.

We certainly don’t discriminate on any music genre, but our absolute favourite is indie-pop. We are also huge fans of jazz, as well as classic pop music from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

.

.

.

 

Tell us the theme of most of your songs.

Mental health, anxiety, depression, addiction, LGBTQ+ pride, love, fear, death, acceptance so just a bunch of super light and frothy stuff.

.

Elaborate on this song.

“Confetti” is an LGBTQ+ pride anthem you’ll want to shout from the rooftops! The song maintains its poise while not so gently caressing the idea of a world where being queer is not just fully accepted, but embraced and celebrated!

 

We are a proud, recently engaged gay couple who make music together and we hope that we, as well as this song, will inspire others in our community to be proud of who they are and be unafraid to light this world up with their true, beautiful colours!

.

Discuss digital distribution and streaming.

Fortunately for artists, it has become increasingly easier to release music digitally to mass markets. While it at times feels like screaming into a void, the accessibility to new, influential music is inspiring and we are grateful to live in a world where artists are able to create their own opportunities.

.

.

.

 

Tell us numerous ways that artists can boost their revenue.

Do everything possible while maintaining true to yourself and your brand.

 

Sell merch, play concerts, and get your name out there so that people know who you are.

 

There are so many tools out there to help distribute your music to the right people, and there is a world of money to be made with your music.

 

Remember to start slow, as being in this industry is not a sprint to the finish line.

 

Most importantly, remember that while generating revenue is a wonderful goal to obtain, you have to make your music because you love it. Don’t forget why you began creating music in the first place. You can’t take your money with you after your gone, but your legacy and how you impacted the world will last forever.

.

.

.

 

Tell us your opinion on self-training and enrolling in an educational institution to study music.

We have always been self-starters and firmly believe in creating our own path to success. If there was something we didn’t understand, we found the answers ourselves. While getting an education from an institution can help lay the foundation to a successful career, it takes you to hone the lessons you learn and find your own way throughout the business.

Go on at length on what it takes to write a hit song.

A hit song has to take the idea of familiarity and put its own spin on it.

 

You should feel like you’ve heard the song before, even if you haven’t.

 

It should sound like a moment in time you remember, or a feeling you’ve felt on a specific day.

 

It should resonate with you no matter where you are, who you are with when you need that one thing to help you transcend time and space to lose yourself.

 

It should take you to the past, present, and future all at once. It should make you dream for better days or embrace the moment you’re in right now.

 

It should be a reflection of you at your best and worst.

.

.

.

 

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

We are Looseleaf. We are the pen gliding on paper. We are the brush massaging the canvas. We are the leaf blown off its branch and dancing through the wind. We are the hum of traffic in the city. We are the steam billowing off your coffee while you watch the sunrise. Looseleaf is you… elevated.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

Our song is named “Confetti” to represent the liberation of the LGBTQ+ community and the evolving freedoms from being unapologetically ourselves – As one would throw a handful of confetti in the air to accurately depict a celebration, one can now listen to our song “Confetti” to encapsulate the same feelings.

.

.

.

 

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

Our song “Confetti” is a single and should make you feel like you’re at a pride parade!
