Tell us about you as an artist
I make music because it feels right, and I can’t imagine my life without it. I hope to create music that feels emotionally relatable, and my audience can identify with. Within my writing during the pandemic and even before, I’ve wanted to explore within my music those lonely and painful parts of life we can all recognize; and offer a comforting reminder that ‘you’re not alone’.
What is the message behind your art?
I want to make music that you are glad you found.
I want my music to mean something I want when people listening to my music to feel hope to feel her feel understood I want to be able to find those complicated feelings and put them into words because it can be so hard to decipher what’s going on in your head so I want my music to show people that those difficult feelings that they can’t describe they are not alone. I hope they feel heard, I hear you.
I want my music to touch your soul, to calm you, and to really make an impact.
What are some sources of inspiration for your lyrics and storytelling?
I always take my inspiration from my own life! Recently I have had a lot of existential questions which has created a lot of new inspiration for my music.
Who is an artist that you look up to more than others today?
Recently I have found myself in AWE of WILLOW. Her songwriting style from her album ‘ARDIPITHECUS’ when she was only ‘15’ is incredible! Her talent is undeniable and it is great to see such a big artist creating more obscure music.
All time favorite record?
My all time favourite record is Pluto Projector by Rex Orange County. The lyrics are beautiful and so well written, I get goosebumps every time.
Tell us about your latest release and how it came about:
My latest release is called Again and I have another release called Never Lasts coming on the 9th of September! The track is your usual breakup song. It is about wanting to have that person back and wishing you could be with them again. As with most of the songs I write the majority of this was written in one sitting. This was the first song that I recorded in a studio setting and it took so long to perfect it! I just wanted it to be perfect. It was so exciting to create a song with a violin in it!
You seem to be fusing several musical genres. What inspires your sound?
I find it hard to put myself into one specific genre! I know that each song I write is quite different from the next but I feel like I sit nicely between a lot of different genres! It definitely wasn’t a choice as I just write and see what the song ends up being like, I feel much freer in the writing process this way. My inspiration comes from my life experiences and how I feel each song progressing.
What excites you the most about what you do?
I love the fact that I never know what is around the corner! I was so excited a couple of weeks ago because I had hit 200 monthly listeners on spotify and now I nearly have 2000! I love that I am able to freely take what is in my mind and create anything I want!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Thats such a big question! The thing is with the music industry is things are changing all the time!
I will be signed to a label and hopefully be performing live shows to audiences that know me as an artist! I will have released an album and maybe even be nominated for some kind of music award like best newcomer!
Your style is very original and elaborate. How do you take care of your aesthetics?
I always just do what feels right. I don’t want to be an imitation of anyone. I used to get nervous about creating original work as I was worried people wouldn’t like it but I finally realised how important it is to follow your intuition and do what comes from the heart.
What was the most daunting moment in your career so far?
It was definitely just releasing the first single ‘Serenity’. Allowing my music to be listened to by anyone, anywhere and finally taking the first step in my career was so scary! I was avoiding it for so long because my music is so important to me I wanted the moment to be perfect.
What is the best advice you’ve ever gotten?
It is okay to be yourself and to be different. There is so much value in being you.
Where do you think the next game changer will be in the music industry and entertainment scene?
I think music collaborations are going to happen a lot more frequently. Theyre so cool because you can have two or more artists on the same track and this allows fan to discover new artists they love! It is also a great way for us creators to challenge ourselves musically and I think we will discover sounds we never thought we could create!
