INTERVIEW BY TARA CAMPBELL
Recently, we got the chance to virtually catch up with Great Stanley, one of the most promising new talents. We had a chat to her about her creative process and everything that she’s been up to!
Q: When creating music, how do you get in the zone? What’s your process?
A: I don’t really have a planned process, sometimes I can’t write for weeks, and sometimes I write three songs in a day or two! I am almost always alone and in my bedroom when writing, except the new single was written on the day in the studio .. so that’s a first!
Q: If you could describe ‘Soak Into this’ with a colour, how would you describe it?
A: Bright yellow, orange, pink. Sunny and hopeful.
Q: How do you feel that this track differs from your previous releases?
A: It’s a new style, a lot more pop, maybe a bit more fun!
Q: Do you have any special memories with this track?
A: I guess it’s a memory or a story born out of really falling in love with someone, so it reminds me of him.
Q: What’s your favourite thing about creating music?
A: Connecting with people, helping someone through something by allowing them to feel less alone, expressing myself, playing shows, my band members, there’s too many things!
Q: If you weren’t pursuing music, what would you be doing?
A: Maybe trying to figure out how to open an animal shelter but that’s probably doomed because I’d get too attached to them all and wouldn’t let anyone buy or adopt them ever. Music is safer, I’ll let people buy my music. But in all seriousness, I can’t imagine doing too much else, if I’m honest.
Q: What inspires you?
A: Everything, anything, places, weather, people, music, heartbreak/ache!
Q: Is there anything exciting coming up that you can share with us?
A: A new music video for my new single, it’s beautiful, and I’m excited.
