Behind the Song

"Under The Influence"

"Under The Influence" might be a song about being completely hypnotized by new love, but I was actually under the influence of Mariah Carey while working on this song! I was in the middle of reading Mariah Carey's autobiography, "The Meaning of Mariah Carey" when this idea came to me. Mariah's always been a huge idol of mine, but reading about how hard she works and how similar her songwriting style was to mine, really gave me this new appreciation of her artistry. I started to play around with different vocalization approaches and really took some chances with the lyrical content as I was thinking in the back of my head, "what would Mimi do"??! The result is an early 90's inspired dance bop that I hope will get everyone out of their seats and on to the dance floor!" - Theresa
