Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter
« on: May 18, 2016, 08:06:11 PM »
A new song called "Heart to break" appeared on ASCAP
Only Julia and Joshua are credited, this could be either a demo for someone or Julia's next single, it's an interesting mix, I hope it could get released at some time.

EDIT: Also saw a few songs with The Struts too, all of them without Justin Tranter (just to note).
EDIT2: It's better if we keep these two in the same thread.

Well, I was expecting something more upbeat for a debut single, but it's not bad, maybe in three listens from now it would get stuck in my head.

First thing I thought when I heard it the first time: this is from the sessions for Selena's Revival.
Same Old Love has the same vibe.

Comparing to what Zedd did with Julia's weak thin voice, Stargate and Benny Blanco are sucks in vocal production.

i think they were working off demo vocals. they do seem thin - a big difference from the fullness she had on Daisy. which is surprising because Benny isn't known for bad vocal production. maybe Stargate had more a hand in that department, who knows. but Issues is still a catchy, minimalist pop song.

Justin Tranter speaks about the industry.
It's a good, provocative article, and I'm sure a lot of what he's saying is true, especially about bring an artist, but when he singles out  the groundbreaking songwriters as being (he literally said "they're ALL either women, black or gay" and "in the HISTORY of the business" and " the ones who really left a huge mark" -- and there are many great songwriters in that category, no doubt about it--  but he leaves out.........The Beatles? Bob Dylan?  Brian Wilson? He's putting Linda Perry and Julia Michaels on that level??? This is PC insanity.

“When you see most sessions are just a bunch of white, straight dudes, you realise, wow, this industry still has a long way to go…”
I'm confused, please someone explain me because I don't get if the point it's the amusing amount of minorities dominating the business? Or the exact opposite?
What about this generation of White straight males songwriters/producers who did left a mark like Dr Luke or Ryan Tedder?
