That I’m getting wonderful comments from amazing people who like what they hear and that’s all I ever ask for I hope to inspire and bring music back into people.
How would you describe your music?
Fun and upbeat I like to do upbeat songs to keep people interested sometimes I might do a piano cover I like to change round from time to time.
How long have you been playing music?
I’ve been playing and doing music practically all my life at 2 almost 3 I was singing Christmas songs and things like that so an I remember singing my favourite child-hood songs at school.
Who was your musical inspiration?
Michael Jackson had a part to play in my inspiration but so do other artists like Taylor Swift and of course a few others.
What artists do you sound closest too?
Personally I sound close to Taylor Swift at least that’s what I think but many might disagree!
How did you become interested in music?
I was something I always had in me when I was little I might sing to myself or pick up a random instrument and play with it. I also did a lot of music related activity at school my music teacher and I worked on chords and songs. I’ve been influenced in many ways really.
How important is music in your life?
It is very important to me I can’t put it into words on how I feel about it and when I’m doing what I love it’s the best feeling.
What drives you as a musician to keep making music?
The supporters it always has to come to the supports I wouldn’t call them fans but I’ve had wonderful comments and reply to as many as I can and I mean I love anyone who puts a nice comment on what they hear it’s just amazing.
As a singer/instrumentalist how important is practice?
I practice singing everyday I can’t not practice haha! I mean if that’s the career I would like to try and tempt to aim for I’ve got to practice all the time.
Does music play an important role in society? If so why?
I’d like to get music out there I feel like music in society is gone a little bit it’s hard to describe but I would like to be someone who gives it back if that make sense.
Do you use social media to share your music with others?
As much as I can if anyone knows any awesome sites to promote I’d love to know!
Do you write your own music?
I love writing lyrics although I don’t have one that I wrote published yet I’m sure that that day is a while off but I do covers over the internet and I share them.
What makes music special for you?
That each an ever individual who does have a love for music has their own special way of connecting to it. I’m trying to aim to be individual as an artist so I can develop and grow.
Do you listen to a lot of music? if so what type?
I listen to a lot of music mainly pop or country but soft piano ballads as well.
Do you feel the music you listen to affects who you are?
In a way it does music can define on what kind of person you are.
When do you feel you’re the most creative musically?
When I hear a good bunch of lyrics or a good song that I listen to a lot.
What sort of musical training do you have?
I have been in a choir called Rainbow Connection and we went on TV (Children In Need) and we also went on Look North news show as well. but performing in a church at Christmas time with them and busking I gained a lot from that choir performance wise.
My final thoughts to inspire young musicians:
No matter what happens I hope to keep doing and writing music. And replying to anyone who comments what they hear I always love doing this.
