Give us a little bio about you.
I have been singing all my life since I was a little girl it’s my passion and something that I love and enjoy, I share my emotions and feeling through my songs and writings.
I listen to all types of music and many different artist each in their own way inspire me through their songs. And how they sing. All it takes is for a good beat and I will think of melodies and start writing. My aim is to share my life experiences in a way that everyone can relate to these experiences in one way or another. Every song is an episode in my life and based on a true story obviously it has been trimmed down for the public to enjoy. This year 2018 I have taken upon myself to release my music and share it with the world so they can enjoy and live my journey through time.
Tell us more about your music.
My music is full of passion and emotion which share real life experiences that I have been through and with this I have added a twist by giving them a dance beat so that they can be enjoyed in the club car or anywhere, the reason being is even though they are emotionally involved songs I still want a feel good factor to my music.
Tell us more about ‘ Not With Me’.
The message of Not With Me is about those of us who have been in a relationship where the other half thinks the grass is greener in the other side but then regrets the move and wishes they were with their original partner. “ I wrote the single from my own life experience having a partner who lost interest in me due to interest in other women, our relationship went sour so I re-invented myself, changed my life and lived for the better. I became stronger and more confidence enjoying my new outlook in life and the way I lived. Following a chance in meeting my ex and bumping in to each other, he saw how I had blossomed in to someone new and different. Of course, my ex wanted me even more now and I had grown and recovered from him. Revenge of sort: Life is bittersweet like that.
What was the writing process like?
The writing process was like a new lease of life because I had won what was a battle in my eyes. Turning a new page meant the world to me it also showed how much more there is to life. I felt happy full of energy and when people say Red Bull gives you wings – this gave me wings.
What was the recording process like?
The recording process was amazing I enjoyed every moment and inch of it. The feeling or recording my own song with my producer in a big studio was like wow omg I am here doing this lol. I got such a great buzz from this I couldn’t wait to do it again and again. I hear artist complaining about doing lots and lots of retakes I was like shall I do it again and again. They couldn’t pull me off the mic lol.
You also have a video out, what was the process like creating the video?
Like anything new it was fun exciting and of course hard work getting it all right the process the shots even the hair has to look the same when you do another take. I loved it being a star for the day and having everyone fluff around you and make sure you’re ok looking good and doing the right thing. Can’t wait to do another one even if it’s full on 18 hour day.
Will we see an EP or Album?
Of course I would love to drop an EP and Album the public will love what I am doing and they support me then I will continue my journey as I have so many fantastic songs that will amaze and entertain the general public, also my style of singing and music is so diverse that I could drop an RnB album along with a full on soft rock album.
If so what can we expect from it?
Lots of emotionally driven songs that will inspire and speak out for many individuals that have experienced similarities in their life and present moments. I want to be a spokesperson for people that are going through these emotions.
What else can we expect from you this year and in 2019?
This year is concluding and now we are looking at next year which all being well I can share more magic from my life as I want to share these moments and emotions in a big way
