Rising Atlanta-based pop star, Erin Kirby, has released her brand new single titled “Ours Tonight”, & I have had the chance to interview this upcoming music sensation about her latest release, along with getting to know more from the arrtist behind the music.
Hey Erin. Thank you for agreeing to this interview. Can you start by telling us about yourself?
Thank you for doing the interview! I am a singer/songwriter from a small town in Georgia. I am what I call a tom boy with a glam face. I love music and pretty much eat, breathe, and sleep it!
When did you first discover your passion for music & feel that it was a career that you wanted to pursue?
I started in pageantry which gave me the platform to be heard I realized pretty early around age 9 that I had a passion for music and wanted to begin focusing on music as a career.
How would you describe your musical style to anyone who is not familiar with your music?
I would say it is pop soul. I compare my musical style to artists like Jessie J, Sam Smith, Tori Kelly etc.
You have just released your brand new single “Ours Tonight”. Can you tell us what we can expect from this latest release?
The single is actually a bit different from my last records. It is more of an anthem song with a bit of rock vibe.
What was the inspiration behind this release?
I actually did not write this song, but I have been working closely with the writers and producers for about five years. The song is really about seizing the moment and remembering nothing matters, but who you are with. They felt the song was a good fit for me and I loved it.
This is the part where I like to get to know more about the artist behind the music. What do you like to do in your spare time? Any hobbies?
In my spare time I love working with various organizations that do philanthropic work. I love golf, my animals and spending time with my family.
What was the last TV show you binge-watched & did you enjoy it?
The last show I binge-watched was Dynasty. It was pretty good.
What is one item you could not live without & why?
My phone lol. I would also say my guitar which is a very close second.
What was the first album you ever brought?
“The Lonely Hour” by Sam Smith
Who was your first celebrity crush?
What advice would you give to anyone who wants to pursue a career in music?
To never give up. To be true to who you are and do what you feel is your path. I also would say be patient and learn as much as you can. I am always trying to learn and get better at my craft. You should learn that it is about you and your passion.
Finally, is there a message you would like to say to the readers of Fierce & Fabulous Revolution?
I would love to say thank you for being music lovers! Thank you for giving people like me a way to do what we love! Be sure to go out and support local artists. I can not tell you how much that means.
