Stevie Nicks offers words of advice to Emily Jaye

Emily Jaye is the frontwoman for Frentik 

What would you say is some of the best advice you’ve ever have gotten?

Just to keep doing it; try to write everyday. Actually, its funny, I just met Stevie Nicks recently, which was incredible. We had this bonding moment and it was really cool.

We played this thing in San Diego called the Sunset Sessions. She came and she spoke and I got to meet her. She said that she writes in her journal every single night, regardless of how tired she is. She has the pages open and she writes in her journal on the left and she keeps the right side blank, so that when she goes back and she reads it, she can pull things out of her journal and write lyrics on the other page. That’s really cool because I’ve had a hard time with journaling and then trying to pull lyrics out and that’s a cool way she does it. I was like; I’m going to start doing that. So I did.

Stevie Nicks attended the Sunset Sessions on February 19th in San Diego - a Triple A Radio Industry Event where she held a Meet and Greet with an Album Preview Session for "In Your Dreams", plus a Q&A and this interview below.

Stevie Nicks took a few minutes to chat with Robert 102.1 KPRIFM at Sunset Sessions over the weekend about the recording process for her upcoming album, and hear the story behind the Fleetwood Mac classic, "Landslide".

Stevie also sang with Vanessa Carlton during the Late Night Louge that night. These photos are from the Sunset Sessions Facebook page. You can view the full size versions here

STEVIE NICKS: Sunset Sessions.... Notes From The Inside

Sunset Sessions took place over the last three days in San Diego at La Costa Resort and Spa. Stevie appeared on the last day yesterday in a two hour album listening event and Q&A taking place between 3-5pm that included previewing 8 songs from her upcoming In Your Dreams CD. Stevie arrived with Sharon Celani, Lori Nicks and her Manager Sheryl Lewis. Stevie was reported to be in a great mood the whole time... Singing along to her music, very candide during the Q&A and of course had the place laughing a few times.   

Also previewed was the "Sizzle Reel" video/photos footage mashed together with songs from the new album. It was a teaser of about 2 minutes in length showing Stevie in different settings through out the recording process - in her home studio, on the beach, with Dave Stewart etc.  This quite possibly could be the trailer that Dave Stewart was to debut this month for Stevie's move/documentary.  Stevie ended the evening sitting in and performing with Vanessa Carlton on a song called "Carousel".

A few things I've read:

First off, from everything I've been reading (and this is from legitimate fans in attendance, not just industry insiders) we are going to be blown away by this album, it sounds that good!

Songs reported to have been previewed:  A Vampire's Dream, For What Its' Worth, In Your Dreams, The Ghosts Are Gone, Soldiers Angel, Annabell Lee, Italian Summer, Cheaper Than Free video previewed.

There was some early confusion over one song in particular previewed.  It was reported late last night that "Lady From The Mountain" was a song previewed at the event and on the new album.  Which would be NEW news!  Now what I'm hearing is the Twilight song (or "A Vampire's Dream") is actually "Lady From The Mountain" - meaning the Twilight song sounds very similar to "Lady From The Mountain" melody wise... I'm still a bit confused on that one as the old demo lyrics don't fit with a Vampire theme... So what may have happened is the melody from the old demo may have been taken and transformed with new lyrics to fit the Twilight inspired theme of "A Vampire's Dream".  Make sense?

  • She will be touring for In Your Dreams after the Rod Stewart dates.
  • There was a white horse used in the "Secret Love video"... and the horse appears on the album cover.
  • The song "Soldiers Angel" has Lindsey Buckingham performing harmony and playing guitar.
