An interview with Andria Piperni
“Without You” is about accepting that someone who was important to you is no longer in your life. That can mean different things to different people – a heartbreak, a loss, a friendship fallout. In any case, there are a lot of different emotions involved and I wanted to take listeners through that journey. I’ve received so many messages from people who really connect with this song; I think it’s just one of those experiences that everyone goes through in some shape or form, myself included.
I actually wrote “Yours” a few years ago, before I began releasing music. I sat down at my piano and the melody and lyrics just started to flow out. A couple years later I started playing it live at shows and people really responded to it, so I decided to finally record it properly and release it. That’s why the production has a live band feel to it; that’s how it came to life.
I want people to see themselves in my music. I think what makes music so incredible is that people from all different backgrounds and walks of life can relate to the same fundamental human emotions and experiences. I want my music to make listeners feel connected and understood and empowered.

I would really love to collaborate with Bruno Major. He’s an extremely talented musician, songwriter, singer, and producer from the UK. I discovered him early on and his work just captivated me. He’s a big influence.
I was always drawn to music. There are so many home videos of me as a kid singing and dancing around the house. I also grew up listening to my dad play the piano. I think for me it’s always just been a form of self expression that I couldn’t deny.
