CLEO (Singapore) - - TRENDING -

This singer-song­writer is one to watch – she’s shared the stage with bands like The Script and Road­Trip, and re­cently col­lab­o­rated with LA-based pro­ducer Qura, who has worked with the likes of Christina Aguilera to pro­duce her new sin­gle “Best Friend”. Here are five things to know about her. “It’s hard to cat­e­gorise my mu­sic into just one style or genre. My songs can be in­die, pop and even soft rock… dif­fer­ent styles [make up] dif­fer­ent songs.” “I wrote it for my best friend, Karen. She’s the clos­est friend I’ve ever had, and when I found out she was mov­ing away, I was re­ally up­set and didn’t know how to man­age my emo­tions. I turned to mu­sic as my way of es­cap­ing the [sad­ness].” “I’d say each of my songs has its own in­spi­ra­tion, and that [the ideas be­hind them are usu­ally in­spired by dif­fer­ent events]. I also get in­spi­ra­tion from the most ran­dom things.” “I feel like ev­ery­one, at least once in their lives, should feel what it’s like to be on stage in front of many peo­ple. I learnt so much about my­self and I have found what I’m pas­sion­ate about – mu­sic and per­form­ing. I also learnt how to be con­fi­dent and how to have fun – ul­ti­mately, mu­sic and per­form­ing should al­ways be fun.” “Mu­sic, friends, fam­ily, foot­ball and cho­co­late (Galaxy cho­co­late bars in par­tic­u­lar!).”
