So, let's see what happens when Signe Levin visits Section 36 Music!
Your recent single, “Into the Sand” is simply fantastic. What can you tell me about it?
Thank you! I wrote ”Into The Sand” in the bedroom of my family cabin in Southern Sweden when I went back home over winter break. Being surrounded by the stillness of nature, I found myself having a lot of time to reflect on everything I experienced during my first semester abroad and it inspired me to create this song. ”Into The Sand” explores the concept of falling too deeply in love with someone, and the fear of that love being unrequited, having it ”run into the sand”. It’s definitely one of the more vulnerable songs I’ve written, and it allowed me to explore sides of my songwriting that I haven’t really shared before. So I’m beyond grateful to everyone who has listened!
Having released both this song, and your previous EP, what is your favorite part of the recording process?
You are currently attending Berklee College of Music. What’s the biggest thing Berklee has done for your career?
Who or what would you consider your biggest musical influences?
I’ve always considered Joni Mitchell and The Beatles two of my biggest musical influences, but I also love Nick Drake and more contemporary artists such as Clairo, Phoebe Bridgers, Lizzy McAlpine and beabadoobee. Growing up, I spent a lot of time singing in choirs and playing classical violin, so I think part of my identity as a songwriter has also been influenced by that.
What would you say is your biggest career challenge?
What are your immediate career goals?
There’s so much I want to do! Releasing more music is definitely one of my main goals right now, and I’m planning on releasing an EP this summer, so I’m very excited about that! I’d also love to release an album further down the line. For now, I want to continue establishing myself as a writer and artist both in Sweden and the US, and hopefully create music that makes people feel something!
I can't wait to hear that EP!
As always, I want to thank Signe for visiting with us, and for sending along the pictures to accompany the interview.
Thanks again Signe, and good luck reaching your goals!
