My debut EP was released on Friday, so go and listen on Spotify/iTunes etc. if you haven’t already! I hope you enjoy it, and please let me know what you think.
Melancholy Blue is a collection of songs exploring some of the most challenging obstacles which people face on an everyday basis, from heartbreak and loss, to betrayal and temptation. I find the resilience of humanity inspiring, and when I’m writing, I often try to imagine what the world looks like from the perspective of someone going through a difficult time. I think that music has the ability to evoke powerful emotions within us, and I hope that these songs will enable my audience to deeply empathise with the individuals who inspired this collection of stories.
All of the tracks in the EP started as humble acoustic songs and were transformed into more dynamic, moving pieces with the help of the talented producer, Jason Odle.
Thanks for reading!
I’m delighted to say that my debut single, Butterfly, is OUT NOW. You can find it on Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music, Amazon music, Google Play, Deezer, or wherever you listen to your music.
I often place myself in the shoes of people who inspire me when I’m writing, and the lyrics of this song are based on the experiences of an incredibly brave and resilient woman who I was lucky enough to meet a few years ago. It’s about the challenges of single motherhood, of dealing with the emotional impact of abandonment and loneliness, whilst also trying to be brave for the sake of a child. The track began its journey as a simple piano song, and was transformed into a quirky, ethereal pop tune with the help of my producer, Jason Odle. The sweet, bright sound of the marimba is intentionally at odds with the hopelessness of the lyrics, to represent how we often pretend to ourselves and to others that we’re coping, when inside we’re really struggling.
