Feed the Band
Our interview with
We have had some great interviews here at Feed the Band on Southern Fellow. In doing so we have had our share of pretty blondes with great talent that seem to fit the modern mold of country music. Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift all fit this very mold. However, even though our next artist on Feed the Band carries many similarities as these other artists, Aubrey Wollett separates herself from the crowd in more ways than one.
There is one thing that I get reminded of after every interview. It’s that no matter how big the artist, they are still just regular people at the end of the day. After doing my interview with Aubrey Wollett, it was easy to see what makes her break the mold in country music. It is her personality that is reflected in her music and life. Her lyrics are filled with life on the coast. They celebrate simple pleasures and positive vibes for good reason. Aubrey’s songs are a reflection of her in a very pure way.
Spending a little time with Aubrey Wollett the past few weeks, I have come to admire her for her dedication and more importantly her infectious positive energy. This energy makes itself well known in her single “Saltwater Gypsy”. Listening to this track you are easily transported to the Gulf Coast of Florida. Just a few lyrics in, you can feel the warmth of the sun on your face and the sand on the bottom of your feet. This song, filled with all of it’s positive energy, is a monument to all that is Aubrey Wollett.
Let’s get to the interview. Also we have a giveaway at the end of the interview, so keep your eyes out for that at the bottom. Let’s get to it. Here is our interview with the beautiful Aubrey Wollett.
You had worked on the business side of the music industry. What got
you to strike out on your own career as an artist?
I started to work on the business side of the industry to learn more and gain experience so that I could support myself as an independent artist. My dream was always to sing and write country music. Even while I was working, I was constantly writing and playing during my off time. After a few years, an opportunity came to me to open up for Michael Ray and also tour internationally in France. I’d say it was the timing that gave me the courage to fully pursue it on my own.
You have written quite a few songs and spent some time on the road.
What advice would you give your past self?
I would tell myself that there’s no perfect timing for anything. Don’t be afraid to put your music out there! I was constantly waiting for the ‘perfect song’ or the perfect timing to release something, and let me tell you, there’s no such thing. Just keep putting music out that you believe in!
What is one habit that you have that most people do not know about?
I always do one type of exercise for the day, whether it’s a jog, yoga, or some type of physical activity. It’s definitely a stress reliever and keeps me centered for the day.
What inspires you and how do you use it in your everyday life?
The ocean definitely inspires me. It’s something that will always bring me back to my roots and remind me of the importance of the simple things in life. The background picture on my phone screen is always a picture of the water to remind me this daily.
What is your biggest fear?
I have major FOMO.
We are always developing recipes here at Southern Fellow. When
writing music what recipe do you use?
Coffee or wine (depending on the time of day), guitar, comfy chair, computer, scented candle, a good title, and a catchy music groove!
Connect with Aubrey
If i gave you $5 to spend at a local Dollar Store, what would you buy?
Probably Skinnypop popcorn and a piece of dark chocolate.
What is your first fond memory of food?
As a kid I was obsessed with chicken tenders!! That’s pretty much all I ordered until I was a senior in high school.
If Southern Fellow could develop a recipe for you, what would it be?
I am a huge breakfast fan, so something delicious for a lazy morning.
Try this inspired recipe
Grilled Banana French Toast
If you wrote a song about food, what would it be about?
My favorite thing to write about is the beach, so it would probably be about tacos and tequila.
What does the next year look like for you?
Next year I plan on releasing a new record and will continue to tour and open for bigger artists!
Tell us about your brand new single “Saltwater Gypsy”.
Saltwater Gypsy is a song that describes my life the last few years. It’s about traveling, playing music, living a carefree life, and keeping my Florida roots wherever I go. I am so excited to share this song with everyone! My hope is that it helps you forget about your troubles and focus on the sunshine.
Is there anything else you want your fans at Southern Fellow to know?
I want to say thank you to anyone who has listened to my music or gone to a show of mine! I love being able to share music and bring joy to people through it. I also want to share with my dreamers that you can do it too! Don’t let anyone stop you from achieving something that you truly care about. #DreamBig
