HITS: Dancing by Myself
In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with LGBTQ singer songwriter Joey Suarez about his new dance hit "Dancing By Myself" that just landed at #5 and climbing on the UK Upfront Club Chart. The song remixed by chart-topping UK-based HausUnited landed just behind superstars Calvin Harris and Sam Smith.
Suarez talks about the inspiration behind "Dancing by Myself" and how it is a very self-descriptive portrayal of the feeling of being alone at a club after being in an eight year relationship and content with the idea that you are now alone. He hopes the song will be inspirational to listeners who are experiencing this kind of independence for the first time. He explains that the song grows and changes a lot like our emotions do when we are heart broken.
With that said he hope this song finds those who feel alone and are trying to dance away their troubles. We talked to Joey about what he hopes to accomplish with his music and his spin on our LGBTQ issues.
When asked what he hopes to accomplish with his music Suarez stated, "Honestly I believe my lifelong goal for music is to give my family something to hold on to. We are all foreigners, my parents come from different countries and so we don't have a lot of history other than moving here.
A big part of being in the music industry for me was to rewrite a lot of negative family history that brought us here and give us something to be proud of. So my main goal as a musician and my music is essentially to make all my thirteen nieces and nephews and eleven brothers and sisters to feel that have something else to be proud of other than all the negative things that exist in our world today."
You can find this song amongst other original pop songs on my upcoming album: This Side of Stupid
