Was there anything that inspired you when writing ‘Feel the Same’?

As cliche as it is, it was my other half who inspired the song and got me to start writing songs in the first place.

How did you approach the songwriting process?

I had a few lyrics written down and a melody in my head. I was approached with a basic track from Spiron (my producer). The lyrics and melody seemed to fit well, so we adapted and developed it further, until we had the finished product.

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

I love the falsetto parts of the song, as it’s a new area of vocal specialism for me. It’s been exciting exploring and using that range of my vocals and it worked really nicely with the song.

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Feel-good dance/pop.

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

It was BIMM that got me to explore more vocal areas and helped me in developing a stronger technique.

Do you have a stand out moment so far from your time at BIMM?

I loved performing at the end of term gig at Gorilla. It’s such an amazing venue and I loved having that time up on such an iconic stage.
