Can you talk to us more about your latest single “This Is What It’s Like”?
My latest single ‘This is what it’s like’ – the concept of it is that feeling you get when you first fall in love saying this is what it’s like to feel that way.
From the moment I heard it, I really connected with it. Love the urban/pop feel.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I actually didn’t write this song, I do have some songs I do write but they aren’t out yet
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes the video to it is out on YouTube and the single is going out to radio here in the UK and is available online.
How was the recording and writing process?
The recording process went pretty smooth and it was really fun.
What was it like to work with Bryan Todd and how did that relationship develop?
It’s really fun working with Bryan. I started acting when I was around 6 and Bryan had worked with my acting coach’s son for a project so my acting coach introduced me to him.
How much did he get to influence the song?
When Bryan creates a song he gives me input which I like and I am also beginning to write more.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than in your own?
When I’m collaborating it’s fun to hear other people’s ideas and create something together.
With the success from your previous musical work – did you feel any pressure as you work on this new material or rather the opposite?
Well it’s not easy being 15 doing what I do because I have school, tour, and at least try to make time for social life but there’s always going to be pressure. I can be really hard on myself with my work but at the end it’s all okay because I have an amazing team that believes in me and family that’s supports me as well.
Does the new single mean we can expect any new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes it’s coming along well, there will be an album coming out this year.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
We don’t have a release date just yet or title.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes I’m on a school tour right from March 2nd-17th and then I have really exciting news coming this summer where I’m going to be performing at arenas for someone but I can’t say whom just yet.
What else is happening next in Keelie Walker’s world?
Focusing on more music and touring and some companies are asking me to be a brand ambassador which is fun!
