I was lucky enough to catch up with the rising star, for a short interview via email.
Have you always known you wanted to be a singer?
No, it wasn’t one of those stories where I could say I’ve been singing since I was born. I just used to have a loud mouth and sing like Pavarotti to annoy my sisters…. I played the piano first and loved composing. It was one random day when I started to write lyrics and it went from there
How old where you when you first performed live?
Do you write all your own materiel?
I love to write and perform my own music, but I also love to put my Eemia Twist on other tracks!! That’s fun too
Would you ever consider entering a talent show like The X Factor?
Not now no
If you could collaborate with anyone who would you choose?
Hmmmm I have so much respect for Ryan Tedder and would love to work with him. He’s incredible
Who is your favourite artist at the moment?
I love Sia
What venue would you love to perform at?
The Royal Albert Hall
Would you rather win a BRIT or a GRAMMY?
I’m a Brit… I have to say a Brit!!! but I’m not going to turn the other down
If you could change one thing about the music industry what would it be?
Hmmm that’s a hard one, I think I’ve got to have more time to answer that…. One thing???
Do you think women have a harder time in the industry?
Some of the most successful artists/groups are women
The list goes on! I think women can speak for themselves!!! We’re tough!
Do you think free music streaming is damaging the to the industry?
I think streaming makes music more accessible. I feel we have to move with technology, but more things have to be put in place to protect the artist and the people involved
Do you think its easier or harder to make it now?
I couldn’t say, I’ve not experienced what it was like before. I think everyone has had to work their arse off!!! And keep motivated and just keep going! And the hard work will pay off!
What would you like to achieve in your music career?
I want that crazy moment when you look out to thousands singing along to your own song, I think that would be pretty incredible
