Last year on November 23, 2021 you released the original Love, Peach Project. What was the BTS process of turning these poems into songs?

I started writing these poems as songs, but when I was setting the lyrics to piano chords, I really liked how they sounded as spoken word with music under it and no melody. I wanted to see what my audience thought, so I posted a few to TikTok around May 2020 and was shocked that they all immediately went viral! I continued writing the poems and posting them, and after my fans started asking for me to put them on streaming platforms like Spotify, all the ideas started swirling around in my head. Since they were just one-take vocals and piano chords, I went to my friend's garage and set up a makeshift studio and we spent a few hours recording six-fan favorites. We listened back and thought nothing special of them, but a few weeks later when they were released on the streaming platforms, I knew I'd made the right choice. It came out at midnight and I remember crying my eyes out (happy tears!) at 1 AM when I saw that hundreds of people were listening at once.

This year on the one year anniversary of the Love, Peach Project, you are releasing a Love Peach, Deluxe Version consisting of all 13 poem songs. What do you hope your fans gain from this release?

I think the additional 7 poem songs that are coming out on the Deluxe version are definitely my best poems yet. They cover a lot more subjects, including feminism, the pressure of social media, tragedy, my goals, and coming to terms with heartbreak. I'm hoping that my fans can relate and be entertained by 'Truth or Dare' and inspired to dream big after they listen to 'Goals'. I'm hoping 'Before You Ask' 'Woman' and 'Female Lead' push my young female fans to demand respect and recognize their worth. If 'Tyrese' inspires just one person to keep fighting, or brings solace to anyone who's lost a friend to bullying and hate, it'll be worth the tears and the pain of loss that I released into that song. I really wish that upon listening to 'Best Friend' people remember to treasure their close friends and give them some extra love and appreciation. I'm excited for my fans to see the acoustic performances I'm releasing on my YouTube channel, and I hope they love the Love, Peach Deluxe version as much as the original!
