We had a chance to chat with Faith about her new single.
Refrain Music Blog: Thanks for taking the time to do this interview. You have a new single out now. Tell us about it? What’s it called?
My latest single is ‘summer fun’. This is a fun Summer bop about enjoying the summer break with friends and people you love.
RMB: What’s the story on how it was recorded? The Who, When, Where etc. Was it a long process or quick? Any good stories about the recording process?
‘Summer fun’ came about after I was sent a track from my producer Ashea, after discussing a pop track in our previous studio sessions. As soon as I heard the track I knew it had to be a summery vibe and I got straight to writing. The lyrics just kind of came to me after hearing the beat and deciding on the summer topic.
A rough mix was created around May 2020 and we revisited the track to finalise it after deciding this summer would be a fitting time to release it. I think the best thing about leaving the track essentially half finished, meant when we came back to it we had fresh ideas, my writing skills had become more mature and just all round made the track even more exciting to release.

RMB: Tell us a little bit about yourself. When did you start pursuing music?
My love for performing began when I started venturing into musical theater, following in the footsteps of my parents who were also performers. I think I was around about 12 I realised that singing and making music was my true passion. So I started performing at local events and entering various talent competitions. I think the hardest question to answer is who you idol is as I have so many for different reasons!
RMB: Who are some of your biggest musical influences?
I have always looked up to Adele for her lyrical skills, Ariana Grande for her vocal ability and bands like Blackpink and BTS for their performances and stage presence. I always find something to admire and look up to in any artist or bands I listen too.
RMB: What’s the one thing you are most proud of in your career so far?
My most proudest moment is realising that people are actually enjoying and finding some type of release when listening to my music for sure ! I always turn to music for any situation I’m in, so to think I could be that for other people is crazy.
RMB: If you had to pitch your music to a potential fan in less than 10 seconds, what would you say?
My music is very fun and feel good, whether you want to dance, cry or sing your heart out I’ve got you covered!
RMB: What’s coming up next for your musical project?
At the moment it’s just bringing out more songs and progressing as an artist and letting you music grow with me, I for sure want to experiment with other genres which is incredibly exciting.
