LAOISE is one of the most exciting up–and–coming musicians in the music world today.
With her latest single ‘Shooting’ out now she joined us for an interview to talk about music and culture.
Hi, how are you?
I’m doing so well thank you!
So, how did you get into music?
I started playing the violin and piano and a young age until I ended up teaching myself guitar at around 12. My family are very musical so it makes sense that I’ve chosen the path I’m on today.
How did your latest song ‘Shooting’ come about?
I wrote Shooting with a friend of mine after we were sort of fed up with things not going our way in life and we felt we had no control or say in some situations that affected us a lot. We spent a day at the piano and Shooting came out of it. It’s my favourite track off the EP.
What are the challenges of making a song like ‘Shooting’?
I guess building up such a bare and raw song is the most challenging part. I wanted to add the electronic sound found in the other tracks off the EP, but I didn’t want to take away from the feeling we had when writing with just piano. Seán (A Place Called Kai Studios) did such a fantastic job and I’m so happy to have worked with him on the EP.
What are your goals for the rest of 2017?
I’m really excited to get out and play as many shows as I can this year. I love playing to new fans and meeting new people. Playing the EP live is always so much fun.
Describe yourself in one word.
Describe your music in one word.
So, what is your definition of culture?
I think culture is what defines us as humans. Different places bring completely different feelings and emotions. Culture is what can separate us all while bringing us together at the same time.
