TALLY SPEAR RELEASES ‘WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD’, I GOT THE LOW DOWN ON THE STORY BEHIND IT, FIND OUT MORE BELOW

What is your name?
Tally Spear.
What is your genre of music?
It’s a real cross over of genres, so think it’s pretty hard to pin down. I’d say it’s a mixture of folk, country and British pop.
Give us a little bio about you.
To keep it short and sweet, I’m a 21-year-old girl from London, writing folk flecked music about all the things I’m thinking and observing around me.
Are you a signed?
I release my music on my own independent label.
Your new single and video is set to release, tell us more about it them?
This is my first step as an artist and songwriter, and the track is all about the insecurities and observations of a young adult in the modern world. I wrote it in university while attempting to find a secure direction and feeling lost in the process…
What was the writing process like?
Sometimes song’s take many months to write, while others mysteriously appear and almost write themselves. This was one of the latter, and I wrote it pretty quickly.
what was the process of recording the video like?
It was the first time I’d recorded a video that really focused on me as an artist and storyteller – I’ve never been a natural in front of camera so it was a challenge to overcome that insecurity. We traveled to a number of beautiful locations in England which was a pleasure!

Do you have any good stories to tell us when you filmed the video?
Towards the end of the video, I’m seen singing on a beach in lovely, bright weather. Only about 20 minutes after we filmed that very scene, huge black clouds descended and we were caught in the most ferocious storm ever – My director and I had to take cover with all the camera gear in a little cove within the nearby cliff.
Who Directed the Video and what was it like to work with a director?
It was directed by a new film maker, Alberto Vitaloni, who I went to the University of Westminster with. I enjoy working with other creatives, creating art in a collaborative way, and I look forward to doing more work with directors and film makers in the future.

 

How long did it take to write?
The song fell into place pretty quickly over a few days.
Describe each tracks in two words?
Upbeat, thought-provoking – That may be three…

What made you go in to music?
I was born into a very musical family, my parents have always encouraged me to create – whether it be music, art or poetry. My dad bought me my first little Spanish guitar when I was 11 and I’ve been writing ever since that age.
Do you play any instruments?
I play guitar, harmonica, mandolin and piano.
Who are your influences?
I love American folk from the 60s and 70s. Bob Dylan, Melanie, Neil Young, the greats…
How do you get inspiration to write songs?
I get inspired to write in random moments, often when I’m listening to another piece of music that sparks something in me — I will be listening to something great, and I’ll suddenly get really excited by it and motivated to go and try and make something just as good…
Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?
Making music full time, playing music and travelling as much as possible.
When you’re not doing music, what do you do?
I’m also a producer for an independent production company, working alongside other great creatives on film projects!
What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?
There wasn’t one song, it was an accumulative process of hearing amazing musicians that have influenced the music industry forever, and being inspired by their careers.
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
I use quotes as pieces of advice, one of my favourites is said by Winston Churchill – “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?
Don’t worry about the ins and outs of things, just make great music and get it up there. I’m still in the process of taking my own advice here…
What quote or saying do you always stick by?
You must be the change you wish to see in the world. – Gandhi
