Artists that inspire me!

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Hey everyone. So, as promised, I’ve made a short video where I basically talk about two artists that have inspired me the most. As the video is quite short, I’ve also recorded a song that is very close to my heart. It’s by Jessie J and is called Who You Are. One thing I talk about in my video is how James Morrison doesn’t try to copy anyone, he is just himself. I try really hard to do this with my own music and when I make a cover of a song, I make sure it sounds different to the original. I hope you all enjoy!!

Hey everyone!! After such a long time recovering from surgery, I am finally back and ready to roll. I couldn’t wait to start blogging again and for my first video back, I decided to go to the MetroCentre in Newcastle. It’s the biggest shopping mall in Europe!! Take a look and stay tuned for more videos!! It’s great to be back! 😀
