My EP ‘Rebellious Teen’ was so exciting to write as I got to work with so many amazing people, and there was no shortage of the amount of fun I had doing it!
I knew my style had changed in ‘Rebellious Teen’compared to my last EP ‘Just Being 15’ but it was also really interesting to hear how my voice had changed.
I grow with my music and I love that so much because then I will always see progress, I’m learning so much every day (I’m learning to play the guitar now in addition to the piano) and I can’t wait to see how I grow in the years to come!
My favourite song in my EP ‘Rebellious Teen’ is Truth Hurts. I wrote it about something I witnessed between two best friends who thought they could trust each other when in reality they couldn’t. One was talking about the other behind their back and so much more. It was so sad to find out that something that seemed strong was broken from the start.
My musical icons change all the time, but when I think about vocals, Ariana Grande is definitely at the top because her vocal range is absolutely insane. I also love to listen to Charlie Puth, his song writing skills are definitely something I look to achieve as time goes on.
Everything around me is my inspiration. Everyone I know inspires me, how everyone is so different, doing different things, everyone is unique. I never know what is going to inspire me so it’s always interesting to see what it is when something does. I’d say, the thing I find very inspiring is a person that makes themselves happy at the same time as making others.
ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU! What else?! It’s absolutely most people’s favourite!
It was an absolutely amazing experience. The whole experience came around simply by knowing people whocould connect me to the right people. Contacts are so important in this industry.
The chance to go to China to perform came through my manager’s friend who had listened to and watched me when I used their rehearsal space.
What was so nice was to become very close with the people I went over to China with – Stedman Pearson (Five Star) & Keisha White (R&B singer songwriter). The whole experience was incredible, seeing the culture and, of course, meeting new people. Everyone was so welcoming so I felt very comfortable and enjoyed everything that was thrown at me. Before the actual performance in front of the Chinese government I was a little nervous but I loved every second on stage! I hope to be going back soon!
Who knows what 2019 has in store for me, but l can’t wait to get back into the recording studio for more writing and to do some collaborations.
I know that it’s going to be a busy year for sure as I amalso in my school a cappella choir, Tring Park 16, who were winners of BBC Songs of Praise senior school choir 2016. There’s a lot of performing involved both in and out of school!
There is also a possibility I’ll be travelling in 2019 but we’ll have to wait and see. I’ll of course post on social media everything as it happens!
My goal for next year is to feel satisfied with my year’s work! I want to pack in as much as l can around my A-Level studies (Music, Business Studies & Music Technology) and, if I can achieve that, I will be very happy.
Coming up in the near future I will soon be promoting my new single ‘Never Said’ which will be released on 18th January.
I’ll be promoting the new release at The Library, St Martins Lane in London at another event, and I’m so excited to share this with everyone!
Everything about the show will be on my social media – my tag across all networks is ‘lydiasingerhq’. It would be amazing if Captain Sound readers can check out my pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can also keep up to date on my website which is LydiaSinger.com.
