Hi Georgie, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?-
Really great thanks 🙂
Can you tell us more about the story behind your track ¨Walls¨?
Walls is written about everyone who meant a lot to me but also did my head in. 🙂 It’s all about loving people who won’t let you in, really and how frustrating that is.
Did any event in particular inspire the song?
Not really one single event no, but I’ve had a few close friends who clam up and make it really difficult to be close to them and I think I was just getting fed up! I’d always say that I felt like I was banging my head against a brick wall, and from there, Walls was born.
How was the recording and writing process?
The writing process for this one was quite quick and painless actually, I think I had a lot to say and that really helps. My producer, Paul, is brilliant so any day I’m recording with him – I feel lucky.
Having shared the stage with so many iconic and big names in the scene – how have these experiences influenced you as an artist?
It’s really great to support anyone who is further along in their career from you, because It reminds you that it is possible to get there even in the industry in the state it’s in at the moment. I think all new artists need that bit of hope.
What was it like to work with Paul Stanborough and how did that relationship develop?
Paul is brilliant, I really love working with him. I had heard some of the tracks Paul had produced for another artist and I knew I had to work with him! He’s really given the tracks some extra sparkle.
Does the single mean we can expect a new material – how´s that coming along?
Yes! Definitely. In fact I have just this week been back in the studio with Paul working on the next 2 singles. They are really exciting. I don’t want to give too much away!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
The next single will probably be released around late April, and the third a couple of months after that, I really just want to get as much of my music out there this year as possible! I have the titles, but I think I’ll save that for later!
Any plans to hit the road?
In terms of a solid tour, probably not this year, but I travel all over at the moment sporadically. Maybe next year!
What else is happening next in Georgie Bird´s world?
Lots of writing, gigging and recording! Basically the 3 things I love to do most! So I’m happy!
