Our latest #MusicBringsUsTogether interview is with the talented young vocalist, who is leading her generation with a strong and unique style, Jess Robyn. She shares her inspirations and her career highlights so far.
Were your musical tastes influenced by anyone?
My musical taste is very pop and I love chart music. I would class trapsoul as my favourite genre of music to listen to, however, the music that I produce is extremely pop.
What’s the best music festival you’ve attended?
I recently attended The Jersey Weekender Festival and saw Rita Ora and Sigrid, and so many others but they were the highlights for me.
What’s the best music festival you’ve performed at?
I am yet to perform at a festival however I have looked into quite a few different festivals and I’m hoping to open the Riverbourne Farm Festival in 2019.
Your debut single, Ignite, and your new single You & Me have both been supported by BBC Radio Solent and BBC Introducing. What has this support meant to you?
Radio Solent and BBC Introducing. Their support has meant that I am able to get more views on my YouTube videos which helps other people to then find my music and in the long run it will help me to grow a bigger fanbase.
If you had to listen to just one song for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
I would listen to I’ll Find You by Lecrae ft. Tori Kelly.
Do you have any superstitious rituals before you perform live?
I just do my regular warms ups and drink lots of water!
What songs do you listen to when you need motivation?
I often listen to my gym playlist as it is upbeat and gets me motivated!
What one song do you wish you wrote?
Definitely Electricity by Dua Lipa.
Which country would you love to tour in?
I’d love to tour the USA.
If you could go back in time to meet anyone from the past, who would it be and why?
Amy Winehouse, as she was so incredibly talented.
Where do you go to find inspiration?
I often write from recent life events, exaggerate them a little bit and I take instrument inspiration from songs that are currently in the charts.
