Hi Kerry, welcome to BuzzMusic! Can you tell our readers more about your upbringing and how you got started in the music industry?
Hey! Thank you for having me! Yeah I was born in Warrington, Cheshire, raised by my mum, older sister and grandparents who celebrated my singing from 2 years old. I had an excellent education which further surrounded me with music and singing. As I got older I followed the path of musical theatre to a degree level until I decided that I no longer wanted to play characters as I wanted to express myself. So after graduation I began to learn to produce and write at home in Liverpool. There's been tons of ideas I've followed to try and find my path into the industry but things only started to come together once I relaxed a little bit and realised that what was meant for me will be and I just have to keep creating.
We’re always interested in how artists convey their music. If you had to describe yours without using any specific genre names (ie: Pop) how would you describe it?
Super deep and metaphorical with heaps of confidence and sass - oh wait, that's just me.
We love your track “Baby Girl Know It”! Can you tell us more about the meaning behind it? What do you want your listeners to feel when they hear it?
Thank you so much! "Baby Girl Know It" will always be my baby song as it was my first shared. I felt like it should of been the one to introduce me as the topic of self love and acceptance was something I spent half my life dealing with. I knew as I was writing it that I was in a place of total clarity in something that had messed with my head for so long so I wanted to document what I was feeling incase I ever forgot. A few months later I found the words I'd wrote and knew I needed to share them to help anyone feeling the same - and this is probably what gave me the courage to put myself out there for the first time as it wasn't just for me anymore.
I wanted people to hear this song and understand how the natural beauty around them is just mirroring back their own God given natural beauty, we're all made perfect and we all shouldn't be scared to celebrate ourselves proudly.
What challenges have you faced as an up and coming artist? How do you overcome those challenges?
The pressure of trying to get it right straight away, which is impossible. I tried so hard to have my artist image and sound right from the get go and I had to come to accept that my image and music are always going to be evolving along with me.
Another challenge is that everyone around you will want to influence you but remember that everything is your choice. Sometimes the people who doubt you and tell you to not go for something are just reflecting their own fear on to you, so when faced with this I just thank these people got their advice and do what I believe is best. And it's true that with everything you've got to start before you're "ready".
What inspires you every day to keep writing and creating music?
It's always fun to see what memories or emotions can be invoked while writing. When it comes to feeling new emotions about an old sutuation while I write it's clear to me that what's happening is therapy.
Even if I weren't to share my music I'd still always have catchy lines just pop into my head that become a song or I'd still be somewhere singing my heart out.
