Discuss your career to date. 

It’s all early days for me; I graduated from university in 2016 and it’s been since then that I’ve started releasing my music and becoming a part of the industry.

State your favourite genre of music and your reason. 

I have a very eclectic taste in music; some days I listen to blues or jazz, other days to punk rock! It all depends on my mood, or what mood I want to get into. Overall though, my favourite genre will have to be Rock, because of its energy!

Tell us your experience as a musician. 

Being a musician is journey of self-exploration and growth for me. You learn about yourself a lot as a writer and musician. It’s easy to compare yourself to other great guitarists or singers in the industry, but something I have to remember is that it’s a personal thing: you can’t be striving to be as good as anyone else.

Tell us the theme of your songs.

Personal insecurities, thoughts and inner struggles, as well as my response to our society and our politics.

.

.

.

 

Name the people behind your success.

Success takes time to build, and a lot of persistence and hard work. Everyone you meet along your journey as an artist all contribute something different to your success and growth – so I’ll have a lot of people to thank.

Tell us your future goals. 

To travel with my music, to tour around the world and meet many people along the way…To be able to touch others with my songs and my lyrics.

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.

I hope that my music will be able to make people realise that their insecurities and struggles are shared and understood. I want fans/listeners to feel like they understand me and that I understand them – I think that’s a powerful thing that music can achieve…

Analyze the transformations you have discovered so far in the music industry.

That’s a deep question! You’ve got me thinking. Obviously I haven’t been a part of the music industry long enough to witness and experience any transformations. But what I do know is that the digital world has affected and transformed the business in a huge way – both for good and for bad… Social media has allowed artists to have a great deal of independence, but also made it a lot harder to get heard. Breaking through the noise is our greatest challenge now.

State the artists you cherish most and your reason.

I’ll just give two here because otherwise I could go on all day.

Bob Dylan for being one of the biggest game changers yet and forever affecting Folk as a genre…for his unbelievable talent for words and poetry.

 

Taylor Swift for showing the power that a young girl can cultivate and being the business minded and respected woman in the industry.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.

Sometimes I will write a poem out on paper and then pick the guitar up and  see how I can make it into a song, and other times I’ll write a guitar riff and melody first and then fit lyrics to it. In terms of lyric writing, I just write what feels natural and personal. But I like my lyrics to be somewhat ambiguous, and able to be interpreted in different ways. I like to get people thinking.

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.

I love working with and meeting other people in the industry, but so far I’ve only ever written and performed my own music. I’m collaborating with a few people at the moment though, so that’s going to change I think!

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the music with a genuine message that inspires them.

I think it’s possible to do both at the same time… But I also like having a mixture of songs, some that make people want to move and others that make people want to sit still and think. Both of these reactions are important to me.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.

You know what, the melody often just happens without me knowing quite how. It’ll just work or it won’t. Obviously you can sit and develop it and make improvements, but it’s a very creative and mysterious process that you can’t really describe. Instrumentation wise, a lot of this comes in the studio when I’m laying the track down… you just need to hear it and feel it…

Go into detail on the recording of your songs.

The recording process is kind of a ‘make it up as you go’ thing. You go into the studio with the raw thing, the melody and the guitar, and then you just build on it. You add harmonies, you add more fiddly guitar beats and you build it all up until you have the whole picture! It’s important to work with a producer who really inspires your creativity in the studio.

Discuss your music performance.

Live performance was something that didn’t use to come naturally to me; I suffer with stage fright, as many do. I have to pretend that everyone in the room is my friend, who I’m just having a conversation with one-on-one, as opposed to seeing a scary crowd of strangers! Playing live has become something I enjoy – it allows me to make personal connection to everyone listening.
