What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?
The story of the track is more to do with its associations over the past two years. It has been linked to a death in my immediate family as well as to a period of personal illness when I needed to tell myself that I was okay. For these reasons it’s a very special song to me.
How did you write this song?
The song evolved over time. Initially it was two verses and an 8-line chorus. After starting at BIMM I added a bridge and shortened the chorus. I think it’s a stronger song now.
Do you have a favourite line/section of the song?
Probably the bridge section – “Always feeling lonely, always something missing, but she’s okay.”
Can you describe your sound in three words?
Almost… quirky folk/pop/rock!
How do you feel your sound has developed from studying at BIMM?
I’ve been more open to trying different things – different ways of writing, using a wider range of chords. I think my songs are more interesting for the listener now. And I realise how different production styles can give a song a completely different sound.
What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?
Getting to follow my dream…
