Who were your musical influences growing up?

I grew up in India and at the time all the majors like Britney Spears, Shania Twain, Shakira and Savage Garden were huge. But I also had a lot of other influences from Indian films – both Tamil & Hindi, so I ended up with quite an eclectic taste in music and I think that filters through what I do now, as I quite like to experiment.

Tell us about your new single Silence Speaks and the inspiration behind it…

Silence Speaks brings silence to life and gives it form and personality. We’ve all been there, I think, unable or unwilling to communicate. You can feel lonely despite being with someone. Harsh words can hurt but sometimes silence can be more destructive. Saying nothing can say everything. And it can hurt.

It was great working with Darion Leigh on the music video. The idea was to take silence – the very absence of sound and something that conjures up images of emptiness and make it into a force of itself.

What was it like working with Banx and Ranx?

I’ve been a fan of Banx & Ranx for a while and it’s always nice when people you’ve admired want to work with you! They’ve done an amazing job on the track and even though I’ve listened to it countless times now, it still manages to give me goosebumps! I think those guys are geniuses when it comes to music production and they managed to create a track that really brings out the essence of the lyrics.

Describe your music in 3 words 

Playful, upbeat, and I like it when the lyrics really make you think (I know that’s more than three words! Sorry!)

If you could collaborate with any other artist – who would that be?

I am a huge fan of Becky Hill and if I had the opportunity to collaborate with her that would be absolutely amazing!

Where do you get your inspiration from when writing songs?

Both when writing my own songs and when listening to music generally what is always key for me are the lyrics. I know that not everybody focuses on the lyrics in a song but if the lyrics don’t take me on a journey then I just can’t relate to the music.

So what I look for when others write for me or when I write for myself it’s for the words to really speak to me, make me think, and take me on a journey.

If you had to be remembered for one thing apart from your music what would you want it to be?

I do a lot of work to empower other young women  and to me that work is really important.

It’s the reason I set up my record label which is intended to support and help other young female artists to release their music and also mentor them in the process. I have the benefit of a legal and business background and I wanted to make sure I use what resources I have and the journey I’ve had in music to enable others to showcase their art and support them on that journey.

Ladybyrd

18-year-old newcomer Ladybyrd has spent most of her youth living a relatively sheltered existence. While the life experiences she draws upon in her songs are largely based upon classical coming-of-age emotions – relationships, desire, longing and regrets – a bigger influence is her fascination with literature and film. Those characters have lived lives far richer and complex than she is, which infuses her songwriting with a grander dramatic scale to boost her teenage tumultuousness. Those elements are all evident in her debut single ‘Too Close To Call’, which is out now.
