Hi Phebe, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Ive been good thanks!
Can you tell us more about the story behind your track ¨Inside of You¨?
Inside of you is about two people trying to save a fading relationship, and the experience of trying to fight to hold on to that special someone at that time. Relationships go through that and the fight is weather to stay or go. I wrote about this having been in this situation a long time ago. Some are able stay and work it out and some leave and start again and that basically sums up the story in the song.
Did any event in particular inspire the song?

How was the recording and writing process?
It was a song that flowed because the music and beat inspired me. The whole process from recording the song to the video shoot has been great and I’ve had the privilege of working with some really talented people as you’ll hear and see! Hearing the final result made me smile as what I felt was interpreted through the song
What was it like to work with Ayo Johnson and how did that relationship develop?
Working with Ayo ( Ajayonthebeatz) has been amazing. He is a really talented producer. He produced my 1st single ‘Say Suttn’ in Nov 2014 which charted at number 14 within hours of its release.
We’ve worked together on quiet a few songs actually and each time I’ve immediately got a great vibe that I could just get behind the mic and sing whats on my mind and heart. Im sure this wont be the last you hear of him on my songs for sure.
How much did he get to influence?
He has a great directory head, so often helped to pull certain ideas out of me or even give honest opinions on what he thought sounded right or didn’t. I respect that as sometime producers just deal with the beat and have nothing to say about the vocals. Its nice that we could work together to create the songs that we have.
Having toured with some of the greatest icons in the industry – what have you learned from these experiences?
So much about different genres, vocals, delivery its been a blessing to be honest. Ive really learnt to keep pressing and going no matter what. A lot of the greats ive worked with have experience knockbacks and they are so persistent because they have a strong believe in themselves. I admire that and have taken that on board.
Does the single mean we can expect a new material – how´s that coming along?
Definitely! I have my EP which is coming out.
Im looking forward to sharing more of my heart through song to the listeners.
Any tentative release date?
Inside of you is schedule to be available on itunes on the 29th January 2016. It is available now for pre-order!
Any plans to hit the road?
By all means! Please please keep and eye out on my social media for performance dates coming soon!
What else is happening next in Phebe Edwards´ world?
Music music and more music! Stay tuned!
