Her Emotional Directness & Performance.

Tom Robinson, BBC INTRODUCING (6 Music)

I nearly choked on my cocoa pops, for novelty factor alone this is worth a listen, it’s genuinally not like any version you’ve heard before. If goody-goody Ellie Goulding’s cover was the weasly milk-monitor who helped the original cross the road, Mama Chill’s take is the spotty skater kid that whizzes past and knocks it over.”

I prefer to leave the talking to the Music, mainly all true stories . But here's a brief yadda! yadda! for anyone interested?  Raised on a tough Council Estate I started Songwriting at the age of five, was around for the birth of Rap/Hip-hop and from the very first time I heard it, it felt like home, the same as when I heard Black American Gospel.  However it wasn't met very favorably here in the UK and I endured many racist comments over the years as it wasn't deemed right for a white person let alone a  girl to be listening to, it was a major shock to the system because up to this point I'd never thought of Music in terms of colour and although it just made me defend  the genres even more there was still no way I could  be a rap/hip-hop artist in the UK,  it just wasn't accepted, so I continued on as a general singer/songwriter.

 

By the time UK rap/hip-hop started to emerge in the mainstream, while excited about the possibilities, it wasn't even close to the calibre of  the U.S sound I'd spent years listening to & honing my craft from, but as the genre started to grow here and become accepted, attempting to  rap with a purely British accent felt mega uncomfortable & also fake. At the end of the day it's about being true to yourself and keeping it real, so I  continued on as I'd first started out before UK rap/hip-hop even came to the surface, hence the stateside twang.

 

When I first became ill  with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E)

I was told by hospital consultants & Counselors the dream of

a music career was over & to a certain extent that was true,

but I've gone on to release an Album, E.P & Singles proving

you should listen to your own truth.

 

Sure, there's a lot I can't do but I can still make music, still

get radio play, do interviews & still use my words to hopefully

make a difference to someone, 

Life is full of lessons, it isn't always fair and it rarely works

out how you planned it, the choice is sit on your butt, quit &

wallow or work with what you do have, as long as you keep

getting back up you can't be beaten. You might have to move

the goal-posts but no matter what anyone tells you your 

dream  only ends when YOU say it does.

So If you've been gifted with the ability to word or any other talent find a way to keep on keepin on til your Journeys end .
