What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?
I wrote the song in November, shortly after a really close person to me passed away. So the story behind the song is about when you lose someone and the realisation that whenever and wherever you think of them and would like them to be there with you, they’re gone for good and there is nothing you can do about it.
How did you approach writing this song?
I didn’t have a special approach really… I wrote the song as soon as I came back to London. The lyrics came first as they always do and then I composed the instrumental on Logic. I met my producer, and we started to work on it together. It all went really fast… in three weeks the track was done.
Do you have a favourite line/section of the song?
I think the chorus is my favourite part. Because the song is about how you feel when you lose someone. Anyone can relate to it in a different way, which I think is really good. So the ‘daylight’ part is just a chilled moment of the song. Simple but catchy… all we need!
Can you describe your sound in three words?
Chilled, ambient and deep.
How do you feel your sound has developed from studying at BIMM?
My taste has changed a lot in terms of what I sing and play. I used to be into proper rock from the 50s. But then I discovered so many new genres and artists that inspired me, so I got more into R’n’B, Neo Soul, Hip Hop… even though I would say that ‘Part Ways’ is more ‘chilled pop’ oriented.
What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?
You get to meet wonderful musicians and share your passion with them. The facilities are good too, rehearsal rooms and studios are easy to book so you can rehearse as much as you want. The tutors are also really supportive when it comes to realising your projects.
