Hi Twinnie, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
I’m good thanks just got back from Italy so I’m feeling very refreshed!!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Home”?
I wrote this song about 3 years before ‘Cool’ – hence why it’s a different vibe. I was concentrating more on a band feel, gang vocals, anthemic song style. It’s about being in a place where your not ready to move on!
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I went through a bad break up and wrote a song basically about it. Then I had my first writing session with Jon Green (who is a genius by the way). We got talking and I mentioned the song I’d written about my situation. The tune and some of lyrics weren’t quite gelling together so we basically took some of the ideas and some lyrics from that song. It’s a great track (but I am biased I suppose), every cloud has a silver lining haha! Maybe I might have the same luck as Adele…
Any plans to release a new video for the single?
Yes the end of the month!! Hope you like it?!
How was the recording and writing process?
Yeah pretty easy when you’re working with an amazing team!
What role does LA and Nashville plays in your music?
Well it makes me think in different ways about stuff, Nashville inspires me! LA is also cool! They both play huge parts as every time I go, I better myself as a writer/artist and also I get to hang out with friends and meet new ones!!
What have you learned from your experiences working with Pharrell and Robin Thicke?
That they were ordinary people, despite being world famous – not that I didn’t expect them to be – but they were so lovely, incredibly humble and both had a great work ethic. It was really inspiring and they honestly love what they do.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes!!! It’s going great I’m nearly there just finishing off the bits for the album, I’m very excited!!
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
EP will be coming out in a couple of months. Not finalised the date yet. As for the album that will be later on in the year maybe September.
Name of it will be … Can’t tell you that! It’s a surprise!! No honestly I have a few titles I’m toying with but haven’t decided yet. It’s a big deal for me so im thinking about it carefully.
Would all the songs deal with heartbreaks and other love topics?
No there are some songs that are completely the opposite, very upbeat catchy.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes in the summer I’m doing some radio bits and some gigs/festivals. Some supports, one coming up on the 7th of July – for Hunter And The Bear at The Underbelly. Doing West End Live and a night at the Palladium in July also.
What else is happening next in Twinnie’s world?
