Sara bareilles and javier dunn dating
For over 8 years, he played guitar in front of sold out crowds all over the world.As an official member of Sara Bareilles’ touring band, Javier Dunn was able to achieve the dreams of most musicians.But i’m still trying to put together some pieces to make all that happen. At first, I was reluctant to make this record because i thought about that hurdle.But then I thought, “screw that – make the best album you can.And the songs are all re-recorded, re-performed, re-produced, and honestly better. When listening to them, I hear traces of everyone from Death Cab for Cutie to The Weeknd to Damien Rice to Robin Thicke. What’s on your fast track to become your favorite song of the summer? Who were some of your biggest musical influences when recording the album?
I’ve been doing the album solo lately, using a laptop and some foot pedals to trigger tracks, while playing electric guitar and singing. In a perfect world, I would have a full band playing everything live.
So for the most part, I honed my public sound to just be that one thing: the acoustic guitar singer songwriter type.
But all the while, I made beats and experimented with stuff on my own.
And the music could come from a drum beat, a synth sound, a guitar chord, a bass tone … Did you write lead single “Couple of Drinks” out of experience or out of observation? I was kind of looking at this album as a debut of sorts, given that it’s my first with a label and a “new sound” and whatnot. Does Trails satisfy the musical introduction you always envisioned for yourself? I was unsure about signing with a label because I didn’t know if my musical visions would be compromised or skewed or whatever.
Well everyone has had that experience at some point, including me, but the experience that led to writing the song was observational. The lyrics are so specific and locational because basically the whole song came to my brain while I was at a party (that was an example of lyrics and melody coming to me first – very quickly too). I felt like I had some really strong songs on my last EP that just never saw the ears they deserved because I didn’t have the marketing/label support/whatever. But honestly, I believe in every second of every note on this album.
Sara always knew I had made that sacrifice, and always fostered my solo career the best she could. Except of course when Sara would have me as an opener. Sara blessed me with a chance to live the dream, and I took it. Sara is also featured as a guest vocalist on a couple of the tracks on your album.
