You've recently released your new single, 'A Delphian Lullaby.' How does it feel to have new music released?
"It's so amazing! It's the first song of my own I've ever released. It has literally taken years to get to this point - I've felt so impatient! It's just ridiculously exciting to actually have some of my music out there, especially as most people who have heard me play have only heard me with my acoustic guitar, so it shows a whole other side to me."
For anyone who hasn't heard the single yet, can you sum it up in a few words?
"It's an ethereal song about being in love and the bond becoming toxic. The climax sounds like it belongs in a really emotional film or something. I'd say it has Massive Attack, Radiohead and Laura Marling vibes."
Who would you say are your musical influences?
"Probably the artists I mentioned in the last question, especially Radiohead. Thom Yorke's lyrics and melodies inspire me so much. I'd say Billie Eilish inspires me a lot too. Her tone and her lyrics also are just heavenly. She just pours her heart into her words and it makes me so emotional!"
With lockdown, have you found that it has given you more of a chance to be able to write and record music?
"Unfortunately not, as I was ill for pretty much all of it really and couldn't sing, so I spent most of my time doing a whole load of nothing. It wasn't the Coronavirus if you were wondering!"
Do you have any plans to get out on the road and perform live after things get back to some sort of normality?
"I don't have any solid plans as of yet, as the live music industry is struggling and we've been focusing on my release, writing and record, but I'm absolutely gagging to gig again, so I'm hoping it will be possible really soon!"
Finally, do you have a message for those who have listened to the single and support you?
"Thank you so much, as I literally wouldn't be able to do it without your support. It means the world to me! I'd love to hear your thoughts on the song, so please do reach out through my socials if you want to!"
