Interview Q & A
When did you first start making music? What or who inspired you?
I wrote my first song when I was about 16 when my music teacher shared his original songs with me and I was inspired to try and write my own! It really opened me up to a whole new way to express myself and I just really enjoyed the process! He also referred me to a music studio where I had some demos made which was also fantastic to hear my songs come to life!
If you had to end every post, story, or concert with the same phrase, what would you say?
I am actually trying to do this more and the phrase is 'Keep singing, smiling, and working hard!
What do you enjoy the most about making music?
There is so much I enjoy about making music but the most important thing for me is being able to connect with other people through the messages and emotions of my songs. Music has so much power to connect people in a positive way and I love being able to facilitate this!
Is music something that helps you, if so then how?
Music gives me a true outlet to express myself and be true to who I am and that really gives me confidence in who I am as a person and a musician. It also just gives me so much joy to be able to create something that wasn't there before and I feel very fortunate to be able to do this.
What does music mean to you?
Music is magic! It gives light, joy, expression, and hope to the world. It connects people who would never usually meet and music is just so magical for that reason! It is the universal language!
If you didn’t make music, what would you be doing now?
Having only started taking music more seriously recently I am still running my own fitness business, helping people to reach their health and fitness goals! Fitness is something I feel very passionately about as well and I shall certainly continue doing this whilst building my music career too!
How do you feel about the music industry of today's times? What would you change about it?
To be honest I am very much still learning about the industry so I may need to reserve judgment until I have had more experiences within the industry. From the outset though I would love to see independent musicians being able to make more money from streaming sites and to be fairly paid in all gigs and performances considering the huge amount of effort, money, and dedication that we all give to our music. I am sure I will learn a lot more once things open up more!
What would you like to achieve through your music?
There is so much I want to achieve with my music! In The Short term, I want to keep building my fan base (with people who really connect with my music) through releasing great quality music consistently and through live performances. I want to remain true to my style and what I feel is an authentic sound for myself with this - I am sure it will develop over time and I can't wait to explore.
In a little longer term I want to be able to make a good living from my music, to become a well-known artist and songwriter, and would love to get my music onto film soundtracks and adverts. I want to be able to move people through my music and to always be challenging myself to be a better musician and keep building my skills. I would love to be able to tour first the UK and then the world (got to aim high!) and to be able to open for one of my inspirations or even collaborate with one in the future is a definite goal too!
I have many more dreams with my music and I am sure they will develop and I progress as well! I am excited to see where this year takes me and I will continue working hard to make these achievements possible!
In your own words how would you describe your music and who do you think would enjoy what you make the most?
My music is a pop-based sound with powerful and or heartfelt messages and vocals. Music with important messages made to uplift, empower and connect with the audience through an authentic spectrum of emotion. Anyone who appreciates strong vocals and moving music would appreciate it! From experience there isn't one demographic it appeals to - all ages and walks of life!
If you could leave your audience with anything, what would you want them to take from your work?
I want them to take an authentic emotion or message from my work and to really feel the music! To take strength and confidence from the messages that it is more than ok to be ourselves unapologetically, that we should do what is right for us whilst standing up for what is right! A general positive vibe while knowing it is ok to feel other emotions and to express them!
