None of the songs featured on ‘My Existence’ took long to write atall, most of them written and recorded during one studio session. It took longer to choose which songs were going to make the EP!

The message behind my EP is just about life. All of the songs I write are about personal experiences, beliefs or something I write about to help others.

 

 

Do you have any gigs coming up or maybe a tour of your own?

I’ve just recently performed at Party in the Park which went down very well! We have other performances in the pipeline while also getting back into studio and releasing some singles. A tour is definitely something that won’t be in the too distant future.

 

 

Where is your dream venue to play in the uk?

My dream venue to perform would be The O2 arena in London. I sang there for my audition in front of the judges on The X Factor so it would be my dream to go back and be able to perform as an actual artist.

 

 

where is your dream venue to play anywhere  overseas?

I’d love to perform anywhere outside the UK, it would be amazing to be able to travel doing what I love.

 

 

Do you have any collaborations with any other artists in the planning?

We are currently working with a lot of different artists from America , watch this space.

 

 

What made you go in to music?

I grew up wanting to be a footballer,
I played for many different teams including West Ham United Ladies but as I got older I felt that something was missing. I wanted to perform, I used football as a type of performance but I wanted to be on stage and sing.
I’d written songs since I was a little girl so one day I decided to give it a go. Now, I’d never look back.

 

 

Do you play any instruments?

No, I’ve always wanted to play the guitar though.

 

 

Who are your influences?

I have many influences in music but my main influence has to be Justin Bieber ( My producer hates it when I say this! ) I just find him very talented and I would love to work with him!

 

 

How do you get inspiration to write songs?

All my songs are about personal experiences, personal beliefs and songs which could inspire others.

 

 

 

Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?

Hopefully much further along the road in my music career and hope to be able to live while doing what I love most.

 

 

When you’re not doing music, what do you do?

I like to socialise with friends and see my family.

 

 

What’s the best advice you have ever been given?

Never give up

 

 

What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and  just as an artist?

I’d say, go with your gut and just keep going. There will be many knock downs but get back up and NEVER GIVE
UP!

 

 

When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget?
