Behind the Track

Behind the Track – Katie-Ellen

19th June 2018

What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?

It’s about feeling like you belong to someone, no matter how much you want to leave sometimes, you know you never will. I didn’t even have a romantic relationship in mind, it could be friendship or even family.

How did you write this song?

I sat at my piano and I started playing the chord progression that became the chorus, I then built the rest of the song around it. In total, it took me about 20-30 minutes to write!

Do you have a favourite line/section of the song?

My favourite part of the song is the first verse, I like the simplicity of it, just vocals and piano.

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Warm, uncomplicated, lyrical.

How do you feel your sound has developed from studying at BIMM?

Before BIMM I wasn’t sure which genre or sound I was going for. I’ve also learnt to develop my ideas and give them more time after I have written the initial draft.

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?

Meeting and networking with amazing musicians on a regular basis and the masterclasses! I met KT Tunstall who has been an inspiration to me for a long time.
