CHAR – Walk Without Fear [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

A. Soulful B. Passionate C. Dark-Pop

Tell us a few things about your new song. What is the main idea behind it?

‘Walk without Fear’ tells the story of women’s experience and darker moments that they come across, covering issues of empowerment and gender that seem to be a subject to firmly stand behind in the current climate. The new single can see tones of warm R&B and contemporary pop influence. I thought it was important with this release to really shine a light on the conversation that has been ongoing about how you can feel as a woman just going about your daily life. I hope that this release brings awareness and a message to those who might not be so familiar with these same feelings.

For which lyric you are most proud of?

“I could wear clothes three times bigger, just to hide my distracting figure” is one we’re all really proud of. It’s really impactful and it makes people listen because of the descriptive nature of it. It sounds and is delivered in a light hearted way but there is a dark undertone and meaning to it, it’s also pretty sad.

You have an upcoming gig in Camden Assembly. What do you enjoy most? Writing music or performing your music live?

I do! I am SO excited. The prep for the gigs can take a lot out of me physically and mentally but it’s definitely the most rewarding and so worth it. There is honestly not a feeling like it. That being said, I really want to lean into the writing sessions and collaborate as much as possible next year because creating something for the first time with other musicians is such a magical moment.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?

Exposure is something that becomes essential to an artist’s career, yet is something really difficult to build (organically anyway). I think being my own manager as well as being unsigned means that I have to think of the ‘business’ side of thing a lot more than I’d like so it can sometimes feel like you are working harder but not seeing the results which can be tough but perseverance is needed for sure!

What advice would you give to your younger self?

A lot. The main thing would be to really get into my head that how I was feeling at a given time, where everything felt like the end of the world, in 5 days, weeks, months, years wouldn’t matter. Things change all the time ‘this too shall pass’. I would also give myself the biggest hug and say, you’re going to have a few really difficult years but you will come through stronger.

What do you love/hate about Ldn?

I love the buzz, the adrenaline and the different cultures expressed. However, I find it hard to really feel part of a community, I went to University in Liverpool and I think that city knows how to take you under its wing. London can be lonely at times.

Thank you!
