Just So You'll Love Me
T's been 7 months since I released my first EP 3 and finally I can present to you, the rest of the songs, in this EP Just So You'll Love Me . I've been asked many times if I was influenced by Bjork and the truth is yes, BUT also by many others. I love Debussy, I love John Mayer, I love Siousxie & the Banshees.... But whatever you've heard in my songs, you'll hear my heart singing, my soul telling, my eyes caring.... The journey of creating new songs will take a little pause here for me to focus on playing the songs live and pursuing publishing opportunities. It doesn't mean that i won't be writing, I'll just not sit down in front of my computer writing 24/7 and set a production schedule for myself to follow (Otherwise, I'll not finish anything). During the time of producing Just So You'll Love Me , I've gone thru many stages of redeveloping the characters in my voice, my words & my style. I was very lucky to get Pelle Hillstrom (Modwheelmood, Abandoned Pools) to lay down some killer guitar tracks for all the songs and that unifies the style and make it even more Toonyun. It's been the sound I've wanted since I was little and Pelle knows that. I also got to have Jamey Tate (David Benoit, Mindy Abair) & Troy Zeigler (Serj Tankian, Juliette Lewis) to solidify the rhythm sections of all the songs and provide all the grooves for more than I want. Troy again co-wrote 2 songs with me on & My Lady Tiya . I also got Miguelli Sgeuglia to co-write the title track Just So You'll Love Me with me. Miguelli is a very accomplished songwriter and he was the first person I approached to ask for collaboration. He's given all the advices & care every starting songwriter needs. He's my mentor and good friend. Last track of the EP Golden Lotus was the last song I wrote within 2 weeks time including production and I took a chance of just freeing my mind and telling stories that I didn't dare to tell before. After all, I'm unwise. After all, all things are possible. I wish to take you on a really cinematic journey with my songs in the background, foreground or when you are crying or laughing. I intend ONLY to inspire & share~ Just so you'll love me.
