Thank you for taking this interview! How has the New Year been for you so far as an artist?
I’ve been really busy! I’ve been juggling working in the studio and also designing for my new fashion label.
Can you tell us how you've transformed from the beginning to now as an artist?
Well it’s been quite a transformation, my upcoming EP is called “Backbone Women”. Writing it and being in the studio non stop for almost a year was like therapy. I don’t think I’ve ever understood myself more as a person and artist.
How did you come up with your latest project?
When I’m writing music, I’m always writing from my own life experience. I wrote a track called “Backbone Women” and we decided to name the EP “Backbone Women” because it sums up all the tracks and me in a nutshell.
Where are you from originally?
I’m from a tiny little village in Yorkshire originally, but I moved to London as soon as I left school.
Where do you live now?
I live in Highgate Village in North London.
Do you think where you live impacts how your music is made?
Hmmm, I'd have to say no, (for me anyway). I think no matter where I’ve lived, I’ve still always lived in my own little creative bubble - if that makes any sense.
What was the inspiration to make music your career?
I’ve always been able to sing but I was never interested in it, I was 100% business minded. Then four years ago I got pregnant with my daughter Blue, and I literally just couldn’t stop singing and writing. I always thought having a baby would make things much more complicated but it actually simplified everything. I slowed right down for the first time in my life and fully experienced everything again, a new one with my daughter. Before music, I felt like I was always chasing something but I didn’t know what was missing until I dared to change careers.
How do you want to shape your career?
Well I don’t really do things by halves, I’m a very ambitious Capricorn hahaha. As much as I push things forward for myself, I’m also really grateful to have an amazing team working with me, who believe in me, constantly moving things forward in leaps and bounds.
Do you work on a tight timeline always or do you go with the flow when it comes to your music?
I work somewhere in the middle. I don’t believe you can write good music with a timer on, but I also don’t like the idea of not having a finished line either, so I motivate myself and set realistic timelines.
How did your latest title of your music come to be?
My latest music title is called “Don’t Come Running”, it’s the last track I wrote for the forthcoming EP “Backbone Women". It's about an ex trying to come back to you after you have just gotten your life back on track.
Is it hard to let go of the music when it is done?
No actually, I can’t wait to let go and release my music to the world. I have the opposite feeling, I hate that I have to sit on stuff for ages before it can be released.
Do you feel an emotional attachment to your music?
Absolutely! I wouldn’t do this crazy job if I didn’t. For me writing and performing is hugely important, because it forces me to pause and feel. It's always an emotional rush when I sing.
How would you describe your music in one word to someone who hasn't listened to it yet?
Where do they go to listen NOW?
All my songs are available to listen to on Spotify!
What has been the best fan reaction to your music?
Hehe I do get lots of direct messages on Instagram, as I’m played on lots of national radio stations in different countries. But I was on holiday recently in Turkey and our taxi driver turned on Joy Radio (a national radio station in Istanbul) and my song Only U came on the radio and he was humming along to it. It was a really funny surreal moment haha.
Is there anything exciting coming up for you?
Yes, my next single “Mad for You” is out June 10th, then my EP “Backbone Women” in August. I’m also doing lots of live shows in some of LONDON’s exclusive private members clubs throughout the summer.
Are you performing the song anywhere LIVE?
Yes I’m performing across London all through the summer! My Live tour dates will be up on my Instagram at the end of
