Releasing your music can be quite a daunting task, so we at BIMM have connected up with an organisation called The Reload Sessions, who provide a platform for emerging artists, new music and artist development. Its aim is to nurture and empower young artists who are in the early stages of their career, looking for advice on how to take their passion to the next level.
The Reload Sessions are currently running a podcast series called Artist Development, in which BIMM alumna, Georgia Train was asked to talk about her experiences as a singer-songwriter to The Reload Sessions’ Josh Galinato.
A former BIMM Brighton student, Georgia discussed a variety of subjects with host, Josh and offered some excellent advice to aspiring musicians. She explains how she uses particular techniques to build her range and how she taps into her song writing mind set.
“I don’t think there are mistakes in song writing, I just think their are levels of how interesting something is to a different person” – During the interview Georgia gives us a big old boost of confidence and makes us want to push our songwriting abilities and to just go for it.
Although she’s still young, Georgia has a lot of experience under her belt since her time at BIMM. She currently writes for the hit-factory, Xenomania. This songwriting and production team was founded by Brian Higgins, who has written and produced music for household names such as Cher, Kylie Minogue, Dannii Minogue, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Pet Shop Boys, The Saturdays and the Sugababes.
Georgia has experienced touring life for the past eight years but is now focusing on her songwriting. Her work has been featured on BBC Radio, ITV and The Guardian. Georgia also acts as a consultant to artists and has been running songwriting retreats in the UK and Europe. Her next one will be further afield in Barbados, so if you’d like to find out more and/or get involved, then visit her website:
