Tell us a few things about your new song “Lend Myself”. What is the story behind it?
Lend Myself started off as my attempt to write a Motown song. I really wanted to make a groove with a bounce to it like a Marvin Gaye or The Supremes tune. However, once we started working on the guitar part it started to become its own thing. Lend Myself still retains a lot of those early soul influences especially in the percussion and backing vocals. Lend Myself is about being tied to the past and not being able to move forward.
How would you describe your musical progress?
Slow and steady wins the race! Hoping for 2022 to be a big year for Sun Affair!
Which is your most personal and honest lyric?
From Lend Myself it would be “I take my tears to the door and the thought of you, it lingers like perfume on my pillow”
Favourite album of the past year?
‘Shore’ by Fleet Foxes
What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?
Finding the confidence to put out my own music. I was mainly a classical composer before Sun Affair and was holding back on releasing my own pop stuff. It’s taken some time but I’m getting there!
What advice would you give to your younger self?
“Put out those songs you’ve been sitting on asap!”
What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
I’ll never tell!
