The deluxe version of my EP, Not Stupid Anymore, was released in August 2016 and featured five new original songs along with two remixes of Not Stupid Anymore. I released the single ‘Call Me Whatever You Want‘ as the lead for this EP as I thought it would be a perfect poppy song for summer! The EP features all the songs I recorded with The Next Room Productions in London, which all have a similar youthful, girly sound, so if you are into Katy Perry, Taylor Swift or Meghan Trainor, I think you would enjoy this EP! Not Stupid Anymore (Deluxe Version) is available to buy or stream on all major retailers, including iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Music… so get your copy now! My favourite tracks are Not Stupid Anymore, No Going Back and Love’s Willing Prisoner.
In June 2016, I released my first EP, Not Stupid Anymore, which featured five of my original songs and two acoustic versions. The EP is very upbeat and catchy with a really poppy feel to it. The name ‘Not Stupid Anymore’ is taken from the lead single of the EP, but also comes from the feeling that I had grown up since originally writing the songs. It seemed like a fitting title as I had become wiser and really wasn’t stupid anymore. The EP is available to buy and stream on all major retailers, including iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Music.
Back in March, the deep house remix of my second single, Falling Back Together, premiered on Deep Sounds Soundcloud account. This was amazing as they have such a huge following on soundcloud and meant that my music was able to reach a wider audience! To this date, the mix has had over 68K plays and over 1000 likes! The deep house mix is my favourite remix of Falling Back Together, so if you like dance music I recommend you give it a listen!
In April 2016, I was lucky enough to be able to perform at the Fallow Cafe, Fallowfield, as part of the iluvlive Manchester showcase event. This was a really amazing experience for me as it was the first time I had performed my original songs with a a live band. The crowd was so friendly and supportive, so it was the perfect place to debut my newest single at the time, Not Stupid Anymore. I felt extremely privileged to be performing alongside a group of extremely talented artists and to be invited to do such a great event! Below is a video of me performing my first single, Stuck In Limbo, live at the event.
Call Me Whatever You Want was the single that I chose to use to promote the release of Not Stupid Anymore (The Deluxe Version) as it was so catchy and upbeat. It was actually the first song that I ever professionally recorded so, for this reason, I chose to keep the imagery fairly simple and just focus on the lyrics and the message I wanted to get across. The song is about finally having the courage to move on from a relationship and admitting to yourself that it is not working. The concept of the person leaving not being ‘the bad guy’ but being the brave and selfless one is what I wanted to get across with this. I felt that this was a slightly new perspective on a typical relationship milestone and something I wanted to explore. The pink crumpled background in the video with the lyrics on top is almost like a goodbye letter that has been written and then discarded, which I thought was perfect for this song with its theme of a bittersweet farewell.
As Not Stupid Anymore was released in April, I felt like a summery, happy video would be really perfect for this track as we were approaching hotter months of the year! For this reason, we decided to shoot in Portugal and create something with really vibrant colours and a positive energy. The end result was a ‘flipbook’ type of effect, with lots of snapshots played in quick succession, giving the feel of holiday memories. The pictures were interspersed with performance videos of me in different coloured bikini tops and pop-ups of the key lyrics in the song. We focused our scenes on the most quintessentially summery things like sangria, the beach, the pool and partying to create the most fun snapshots we could! Also, as the song is about love and girl power, I couldn’t help but add some heart shaped sunglasses and a heart shaped rubber ring!
Back in November 2015, I released my first single, Stuck In Limbo.
I was absolutely thrilled to start sharing my music with the world, but also a little nervous! Luckily I got a really great response to the track, video and remixes. The single included the Original Mix, House Mix, UKG Mix and Dub House mix, which provided a great variety to appeal to different tastes.
Whilst the House Mix was the lead mix, it was actually the UKG mix which was selected to be featured on Certified’s soundcloud account. This was awesome for me as the account has over 80K followers and helped more people hear Stuck In Limbo! The UKG mix was played almost 3.5K times, with lots of loves and reposts. It felt amazing for so many people to like the track!
The Falling Back Together (Deep House Vocal Mix) – released 8th April – will be featured on the EDM Network’s soundcloud page this time around. I’m so excited for this as they have even more followers (156K) so my music will be shared with even more people! Hopefully, I get the same sort of reaction as I did with Stuck In Limbo… or better! Fingers crossed!
Listen to Stuck In Limbo (House Mix) and Stuck In Limbo (UKG) below!
The UKG remix of Falling Back Together premiered on The Popshock, on 16th Feb 2016!
The UKG mix is the first remix to premiere from the Falling Back Together single. It’s really exciting to have so many great remixes of Falling Back Together as they all bring something different to the table! I think the UKG mix is a great mix for the club with a heavy bassline and catchy hook, and that’s why it is actually the lead mix for the campaign.
Along with the Original and UKG Mixes, the single will also feature a House mix, a DUB mix and a Deep House Vocal Mix. I can’t wait to share them all, but in the meantime, check out the UKG mix below!
At the moment I’m in the process of promoting my second single, Falling Back Together, which will be released on 8th April! I wrote this song quite a few years ago and I have always loved playing it at the piano. ‘Falling Back Together’ is actually my favourite of all the songs I have ever written, so I’m super excited to be able to share it with people.
As I write all of my own songs, they always have a personal story behind them, and Falling Back Together is no exception.
The track is about a couple that keep trying to leave each other but are always drawn back together. At the start of the song the girl is trying to leave the relationship behind, but she knows that no matter how far she runs, she will always find herself in the same place. They have such an intense relationship, with a connection that they just cannot shake, so no matter how much they fight and drift apart, they know that they can’t escape each other in the end.
I guess it’s a love song, but a bit of a reluctant one!
The single will consist of the Original Mix of the track, along with House, Deep House, UKG and DUB House mixes. I think the mixes are really great as they add a different vibe to the song and make it more upbeat and dancey! Below is the soundcloud link to the Original Mix… I hope you enjoy it!!
