Your music and image are vibrant, cheeky and raw, how did Brighton influence your professional, and personal identity? Why, thank you! Brighton is a very laid-back town. You can express yourself however you like and no one is even going to bat an eyelid. Growing up here meant I could be who I wanted.
You like to be fully involved in the music videos and shows, from conception to execution, what inspires this distinct visual style? I’ve always loved standing out. It’s a compliment if they stare. They don’t recognise what they see, because it’s different! A music video is just another opportunity for me to be creative and I love it. I always want my visuals to pack a punch and it’s even more amazing when I get to work with a director or anyone who’s looking to do the same thing.
Likewise with your fashion taste! If you had to pick, would you choose designer or vintage? Vintage designer!
How did your first two records make you grow into the artist you are now? They made me believe in myself a little bit more I guess. Proved to myself not only can I sing alright, but I can write songs too. My confidence is growing and I’m so glad I had those two EPs to gradually grow myself.
Amy Winehouse was a great musical influence of yours, how do other successful women inspire you? How important have they been in influencing you? Seeing a woman say ‘no’, a woman who knows what she wants and how to get it is what inspires me! A lady with bigger balls than any geezer next to her is some empowering shit.
