“When lockdown happened around the time we were due to shoot ‘Just A Girl’ we stepped into uncharted territory of remote shooting. With us all feeling confined and creatively frustrated JAG became a call to prayer for me, nurturing my talent to show the multifaceted nature of being a woman today.”
“Addicted To Blue is the bop I never realised I had. It lived as a piano ballad for over a year and I never knew which direction to take it in. I went out to Sweden to produce it with Elias Kapari and we had such a fun time with it because it was such a blank canvas, so we tried everything just for fun!”
“When I wrote this song nearly two years ago, I’d hit a real emotional low. Having just gone through an amazing, life-changing experience – one of the best things that’s ever happened to me – it also felt like the worst time of my life. I wrote Invisible to reflect the way I was feeling at that time, but also to focus on the fact that sometimes depression and feeling down are things that you can’t see or touch. It made me think about how invisible mental health issues can be.
I listen to this song now and know that I am in a better place in my life. I am so lucky that I have music, to capture all of my honest thoughts and feelings and to make something beautiful out of a desperate situation. I hope this song encourages others to open up and talk about what they’re going through, rather than keeping things bottled up.”
