What is your genre of music?
Give a Little Bio of yourself.
Lula is a young, London-based singer-songwriter, who’s unique style of pop draws in from many influences. Her colourful life has shaped her vibrant sound and has already garnered the attention of industry taste-makers. She’s done so with the organic self-expression of her everyday life, using her multi-instrumental know-how and elegant vocals.
Lula has worked with producer Jake Gosling on the E.P. ‘Abandon’, which has been released on iTunes, and after refining her sound on tour with various artists in the UK, is now preparing to record her next release with producer Pete Boxsta Martin.
How long have you been doing music?
Since I can remember but it was really when I went to the Brit School, that is when I started to focus on writing music.
What made you go in to music?
I’ve always known it’s what i wanted to do, ever since i can remember, in my earliest memories I remember I use to lay in bed and write songs until i fell asleep. I must have been around 6ish, cliche I know, but true.
Are you a Signed Artist?
Who are your influences?
John Mayer, Massive Attack, Sia, Bon Ivor, Imogen Heap, frou frou and Alanis Morrissette. I’m influenced by eastern music and obviously Greek as I’m from cyprus. My favourite subject at collage was Ethnomusicology which is the study of world music.
How do you get inspiration to write songs? People mostly… they fascinate me, can be anything down to a conversation or books that I read or life experiences and relationships.
Where is your dream place to perform in USA? Grammys
Where is your dream place to perform in UK? Wembley Arena
If you could go on Tour with any Singer or Band from UK who would it be and why?
Imogen Heap, Jack Garratt would be pretty sweet, defo wouldn’t complain. Imogen heap is one of my main influences and she blows my mind live, would be incredible to support her would definitely be an achievement. Jack Garrott is one of my favourite live performers at the moment, the guy is SMASHING IT! I’m pretty sure he could teach me a few things about being a musical DON.
If you could go on Tour with any Singer or Band from USA who would it be and why?
John Mayer, no doubt! Our music would probably not work that well together on a support tour, just because they are very different genres but it would be a dream come true for me to support him, Its all I’ve ever dreamt about as i’ve grown up.
Where do you see yourself in 2-5 years?
Winning my grammy and doing a few world tours of my own- if people don’t laugh at your goals they aren’t big enough right….
If you weren’t doing music what would you be doing?
Traveling the world like Christopher McCandless from Into The Wild. I would have nothing but a backpack on my back and trying to figure out what this whole ‘living thing’ is all about.
Who is your favourite Artist or Band at The Moment?
Sinead Harnett is someone I’ve been listening to a lot at the moment- loving her vibe!
What’s the best advice you have received?
Never give up no matter what. The more successful you become the more people will grab on to your flaws or comment on what you’re doing, never take it personally just means your moving in the right direction. Life is like a train, its necessary for some people to get off along the way, what is important is when you get to your destination you have the right people on board.
What would you do differently if you could?(If there is anything)
Nothing. Life is about the journey and every mistake you make is vital for the lessons you learn to help you with the next part.
What’s the best gig you have done so far?
I personally remember the more intimate gigs as the best, they are the ones that stick in your mind. But then again festivals are always a lot of fun. I did a gig last year back home in Cyprus which was amazing, was in the centre of Limassol just near the beach, must have been around a thousand people there and when the sun shines everyone is happy!
If you got a tv show or film interested in your music, which one would you let your music be played on?
Jools Holland, Ellen Degeneres, Jimmy Fallon. I don’t think i’d really say no to any film or tv show that wanted to use my music.
