Who were your musical influences growing up?
“I grew up listening to bands like AC/DC, Queen, Guns n Roses etc with my dad, so my background is very much rock. Music that sounds as though it’s been recorded live has always inspired me. I like feeling as though I’m watching them perform right infront of me. It feels super personal. I’m excited for you to hear my music going more down this avenue!”
Tell us about your new single Signs
“‘Signs’ was originally written as a piano ballad, making it a much sadder song than what you hear now! However, when I got to studio, I didn’t want it to be sad anymore – I wanted to take the pain and turn it into a feeling of empowerment. But to sum up, it’s about sending signs to an ex who you know is still caught up on you as well.. even though he’s with someone new (“so pretend you still ignore me while you’re looking at my stories”, “I know that you’re watching from a distance”)”.
Can you describe your music in 3 words?
“Sad turned sass!”
You’ve got a huge following on TikTok – how did that come about?
“Honestly I’m not sure myself haha. I started posting videos of me singing and people kept following. It’s been a great journey this year and the support I get on that platform is crazy and am so grateful for it all”.
If you could collaborate with any other artist – who would that be?
“Miley Cyrus 100%. Upsahl and Two Feet are also favourites”.
Where do you get your inspiration from when writing songs?
“Mostly from my own experiences, as I love keeping it real, and honesty is something this world needs a bit more of – it makes people feel less isolated. Notes on my phone is 99% lyrics, and most of my storage issues are from how many voice memos of random song ideas”.
If you had to be remembered for one thing apart from your music what would you want it to be?
“My energy, and I can make great halloumi wraps”.
Have you got any gigs coming up?
“I’m working towards my first headline show next year which is super exciting! Will be great to finally perform the music that I’ve been working on live”.
