To be described as “one of indies favourite artists” is a huge compliment. I’m proud to be independent and I’m navigating my way through technology and becoming more and more “DIY”.

Yours was recorded entirely in my home studio with equipment I saved and worked for. It was a massive learning curve for me so this release is a little more of a risk than the last one. I’m always so, so aware of things sounding unprofessional so I enlisted the help of Tobi, a producer I’ve connected with online, who has mastered and mixed it and gave it that little twinkle that is still beyond my capabilities! He’s been great, with not only my constant questions “Tobi, why can’t I get my mic to work with Cubase!? Oh it’s muted 👀” but with the promotion and helping me get reviews!

This morning, I received a beautiful email from a reviewer who told me she loved the song so much she has written a review coming out on Monday. This person usually doesn’t do the reviews herself so I’m very grateful! As soon as the review is out I’ll share the link! My favourite part of the email she sent is this…

Isn’t this what we want as musicians? To take people on a journey so comments like this make me proud. More so than comments about my vocal ability or musicianship. It’s why I write AND release music, even when the song is very emotional, like ‘Yours’.

Three weeks until the release, time is really flying!

As always, I love hearing your comments and feedback so let me know what you think in the comments, or send me a message!

It’s exciting times here because ‘Yours’, my next single is out in just 4 weeks (and 1 day!)

Its been busy few months, with lots of writing and performing.

I even got to meet and talk to one of my idols, KT Tunstall.  She was very inspirational and had some amazing advice! She even took a photo and signed my journal.  The page is now framed and with my collection of autographs! Im so luck to have been able to connect with and meet some of my favourite songwriters like Lucie Silvas and Liz Longley! I even have a photo with Sir Paul McCartney in my collection! All help motivate and inspire me when I feel like things aren’t going to plan, I love the memories attached to each one!

Ive been playing more live music, Ive been to open mics, played a few small gigs and I’m falling in love with performing once again. I do suffer from nerves but once I’m comfortable, I really enjoy it!

So back to ‘Yours’…

This song isn’t like anything I’ve recorded before.  When I wrote it, I know it was a special song and I knew I wanted to release it so I recorded it myself and sent it to a producer to mix and master and he (@producedbytobi) did a super job! So heres the preview…

I’m looking for reviewers and bloggers to write a piece about it too, if you’re interested, get in touch!

Thanks for reading!
