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

I wrote this track a couple of years ago now. It’s basically about feeling a need for change, and having hope for a brighter future.

What did your process involve?

I was driving home one night and was feeling pretty grumpy for one reason or another, so I started singing and the lyrics just kinda came out. When I got home I grabbed my guitar and the song basically wrote itself.

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

My favourite line in the song would have to be the hook, which is also the title, ‘Give Me a Reason to Stay.’ I think that line is very final and quite empowering, and can be applied to many situations.

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Folky, Bluesy, Hippie.

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?

I’m really enjoying studying at BIMM. I like lots of things about it, however the best part, for me, is being surrounded by so many talented people and having the opportunity to work with them.
