There are only a few dance artists I like but after attending Clubland Live 3 at HMV Apollo I immediately fell in love with Lucy (aka Skyla). The style of music is dance/ pop. It is basically music you would hear in a club. The material I have heard from her is highly infectious. Two of her songs include club versions of Ayo Technology by 50 Cent and Breaking Free from High School Musical.
Well Lucy was so kind enough to find some time to answer the 10 questions:
Q 01. What was your first musical instrument and where did you get it?
I started playing the piano when i was 8 years old, i got my first piano from the Yamaha shop 🙂
Q 02. What was your favourite gig you have headlined or supported at?
I’ve recently toured with Clubland live 3, performing with headline acts – Ndubz, Cascada and Agnes. My favorite venue was the MEN, it was an amazing experience performing infront of 10,000 people !!
Q 03. If you were to collaborate with anyone dead or alive who would it be and why?
I would love to collaborate with Timberland. His productions are fresh and original, and i think we could create something great between the two of us… a number one hit perhaps – so Timberland , if you reading this, email me hahaa!
Q 04. Favourite song to sing live and why?
I love performing my latest single Ayo Technology, because i can do it in lots of different styles, Whether its an acoustic set, or my clubland style version!
Q 05. Favourite music venue and why?
Manchester MEN Arena, the atmosphere is unbelievable in there!
Q 06. Where do you get your inspiration from when writing songs?
from real life experiences, heartbreak and happiness. When I’m lost in music in the club, at home, in the gym.
Q 07. Describe your music in 3 words?
Fresh, Upbeat, Real
Q 08. What tips do you offer to any one wanting to become a singer or start a band?
Never give up! There’s always someone out there who will believe in your music, you just have to have true confidence in yourself, and that will shine through. Get as much experience as you can, get in the studio, and tell EVERYBODY you meet that you sing, or your in a band etc, because you never know who your talking to, or who they might know. (Thats what i did and it worked 😉 Then you have to keep working hard because only you can get yourself to the top, don’t rely on anyone else to do it for you! Good Luck and Go For It.
Q 09. Who is your favourite singer or band at the moment?
I’m loving Esmee Denters, she’s so NOW, and there was a real gap in the industry waiting to be filled by a young, fresh, “christina” Esmee has filled it nicely. Go Girl!
Q 10. Goals for the year?
To get a single in the charts, and to write a song for a current singer 🙂
