Turning Tables

When ’21’ was released I was a teenager with no idea who I was or where I fit in. I love ‘Turning Tables’ most of all because of its empowering lyrics – about picking yourself up and taking back control. They immediately draw you into a situation and feeling we’ve all experienced and can relate, then they show you the strength and resolve to put an end to it, once and for all. I’ve called this version a tribute because it’s a testament to a wonderful piece of songwriting. It’s not a cover that seeks to be better somehow or radically changed from the original, it’s simply a reimagining 10 years on – still relevant, still resilient, still resonant.

Enough For You

I Love the original song because it carries such a relatable sentiment and it also has one of the greatest opening lines of all time. It has been a turbulent year for all of us and I wanted to close it out by making something really atmospheric, with a touch of warmth for that harmonious Christmas feeling we are craving. The cover came about when I played a version of the song on Instagram, the team liked it so much they encouraged me to make a full version…..so here it is! I got super carried away with the production, which was a lot of fun, really ramping up both the drama and the cosy Christmas factor. My ideal Christmas is warm and cosy with everyone I love all together, eating, drinking, and laughing. Watching our favourite movies and playing board games by the fire.

Young Tonight

‘Young Tonight’ captures the calm after a storm. It’s a breakup anthem that pairs bitter lyrics with euphoric sounds as you cast off a heavy sentence and emerge, reborn, surveying the wreckage one last time before leaving it behind for good. Symbolically, summer solstice is the perfect time to release ‘Young Tonight’ – it’s all about celebrating life and abandoning negativity, manifesting new beginnings through inner reflection and revelling in the present, not dwelling on the past.

All You’re Not (2020)

‘All You’re Not’ is a retaliation to being branded by someone as lacking in so many ways. A veil has been lifted and you finally see the situation for what it was, and what this person was doing to you… wearing you down and eventually eroding your self-esteem completely. You realise all these faults are not, actually, part of your character at all, but a reflection of theirs. So, you start to remember your worth, stop feeling sorry for yourself and become free to heal. ‘All You’re Not’ is riotous and viciously defensive – because it’s high time you claimed back your wounded self.

Three of Swords EP (2019)

I wrote ‘Three of Swords’ last summer. It’s melodramatic and full of rage and hysteria. There are some very specific details and some more overarching sentiments. It was a very cathartic process writing and recording this but now it serves as a slightly unwelcome memory. But also a lesson learnt and I’m very proud of the songs and the depth of the production, and development in the sound. I think it shows the growth in my confidence as a songwriter and a performer, and in myself -being more vocal and outward, rather than internalising everything.

Strangers In The Night (2018)

A supporter of my previous releases got in touch saying he was planning to propose and asked if I’d cover one of the songs that mean the most to him and his girlfriend. I said straight away “I’m doing strangers” I just knew I could do something different with it. At the time I really needed something to throw myself in to, so I spent 3 days recording it on my sofa. I wanted to make something special for Mitch and Jess, of course, but really, I did it for a girl… I poured all my longing and devotion and sadness into it, and I liked it so much I took it to Jake to mix properly for release.
