Featured Artist | Ley Chanel | You Need You

We recently collaborated with the talented songwriter, Ley Chanel on his song “You Need You,” written as an uplifting message to those who feel trapped in a negative relationship.

The music usually comes to me suddenly so I stop whatever I am doing, open up my notes and write. The lyrics to “You Need You” came to me when I was on the treadmill.

Tell us the story that led to you writing the lyrics for “You Need You.”

A lot of people have dependency issues when it comes to life. Some people are greatly attached to their families and friends while others get emotionally attached to their partners. These deep emotional, physical, and psychological attachments most of the times come to an end in a very fast, surprising, and shocking way because people prefer not to talk about their problems when a relationship is critical or sensitive. Lack of communication creates a sudden separation or break up that could sometimes crush a person’s soul. People react to this shock in many different and unique ways which could be positive, like an increase in confidence, or negative, like entering into a depressive state. “You Need You” came to my mind out of a similar personal relationship when I was running on my treadmill. While writing it, I had in mind other similar dependency problems that were at that time happening to people I know. I wrote it as uplifting music that could help people gain the confidence they need to get out of such a negative drama.

Do you have favorite places or times when/where you like to write?

I don’t have a specific time or place to write. The music usually comes to me suddenly so I stop whatever I am doing, open up my notes and write.

Did you get formal music education before?

I don’t have any formal music education. I improved through time.

What are your plans and hopes for the future with regards to your music?

I have lots of music written and composed that I keep working on when I feel inspired. I am planning on releasing a couple of albums and see how it goes from there.
