Who are you listening to at the moment?

I have a really mixed taste in music and tend to listen to different genres/bands every day depending on my mood. But recently I have been fan-girling over Billie Eilish’s new album massively! I think she’s so cool. Other than that, I am listening loads to Hiatus Kaiyote, Bj√∂rk, Tom Misch, Jungle and Alice Phoebe Lou at the moment, amongst many others. Queen will always be an all time fave, though.

What do you love about Bristol?

I love how friendly it is! Bristol has got such a lovely atmosphere, and it’s a great place to be if you want to be challenged creatively – there are always people around to work with who will inspire and help grow your ideas. I also love all the cafes, the vibrant music scene and the beautiful parks. I’m so glad I decided to come here!

Why Vocals?

I love singing; especially in harmonies. And I’ve always felt drawn to the idea of working with music in one way or another. During my time on the Professional Musicianship course I have realised that there are so many other areas within the industry that appeal to me. Through BIMM I have been given opportunities to explore those as well.

For example, apart from my love for arranging harmonies, I am currently interning as a marketing assistant for a festival, creating content (photography/video) for local musicians and helping to manage a singer-songwriter here in Bristol! If it weren’t for the expertise, connections and support through BIMM, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I’m really grateful for everything it’s given me.
