Where are you currently based?
I am currently based in Brisbane!
How did you first start playing music?
I’ve always had a passion for music, long before I was even aware of it. I’ve been writing songs for as long as I can remember and I played guitar, piano and percussion in school. I always knew I wanted to be a full time musician and I’m so grateful that dream is working out for me.
What’s been happening recently and how has your Covid experience been?
I just dropped a new single so I’ve been enjoying seeing the reaction to that! My Covid experience has been bittersweet, I’ve had so much time to work on music but I really missed performing. I had my first gig since Covid a few weeks ago and it was so magical.
Your new single ”I Wish We Met When We Were 25′ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?
I was really inspired by classic, pop breakup songs. I wanted to have my sassy breakup moment so I definitely did some exaggerating with the lyrics. My producer and I took inspiration from artists like Charli XCX, Taylor Swift and Caroline Polachek. We wanted to add an element of electronica to give more texture and depth.
How did you go about writing the single?
I got the idea for the title randomly one day and wrote it down in notes then didn’t touch the idea for another month. I started humming the melody one night and recorded a voice memo then fleshed it out on the piano the next day. The lyrics definitely came out naturally, I think my best songs are the ones that only take me 5 minutes to write.
Where and when did you record/produce/master and who with?
I recorded 80% of it at my home studio with my producer Levi Kohler at the start of this year then added finishing touches at Airlock Studios with producer Steve Kempnich a few months ago.
How did you approach the recording process?
I always like to finish the structure and lyrics before recording so I have a vision of the finished song. I basically just show my producer some reference tracks and examples of what I want the song to sound like, then we just do what comes natural from there!
What’s planned for the remainder of 2020 going into 2021?
I want to squeeze in some more gigs and focus on recording more tracks for the future
Any shows coming up?
I have a show on December 17th with Sir & Lydia at Tomcat
What do you like to do away from music?
I got into making jewellery during Covid so I’ve been enjoying that!
Who are you listening to at the moment?
I’ve been loving The Neighbourhood’s new album at the moment, it’s so catchy and fun!
Favourite food and place to hangout?
I am a sucker for a good picnic, it’s the ultimate no pressure hangout situation in my opinion!
