Twinnie has kindly taken the time to speak with Fierce & Fabulous Revolution regarding the journey behind the upcoming single & its viral success on TikTok. You can find the full interview below.
Hey Twinnie, thank you so much for this interview. Can you start by telling the readers a little bit about yourself?
Twinnie: Thanks for featuring me on your blog. I’ve been on stage since I was 4 and have always loved music. I released my debut album ‘Hollywood Gypsy’ in 2020 just as the pandemic was starting which was great timing haha. The response was so amazing and something I’ll never forget. I finally toured the record last year and then released my EP ‘Welcome to the Club’ this summer. I also spend much of my time in Nashville where I regularly perform and write, and in 2021 I founded the global music collective I KNOW A WOMAN.
When did you first discover your passion for music?
Twinnie: As I said above, I’ve always loved music and had a passion for it especially storytellers like Carol King, Dolly Parton, Shania Twain, and Billy Joel. For me, it’s all about the lyrics and I’ve been drawn to that since I was very young.
Have you always known that you wanted to pursue a career within the music industry?
Twinnie: Yes definitely. I began performing when I was 4 years old. I didn’t know anyone in the music industry though so I found my own way through various jobs whether that be performing in the West End or backing dancing for other artists.
How would you currently describe your musical style?
Twinnie: I’d say it’s pop influenced by storytelling lyrics. I have a very eclectic taste in music and don’t really conform to musical genres myself because I think it limits creativity. I like letting the song do the talking and the listener decide.
On October 7th, you will release the song “Bad Bad Bitch”. How did the idea for the song come together?
Twinnie: I think it comes from a place of just wanting to be upfront and honest from the off, especially when it comes to dating. I don’t like games and this is me, in a tongue-in-cheek way, laying my cards on the table and showing every facet of myself with humour.
How would you compare the creative process of this song to your previous releases?
Twinnie: It’s pretty much the same, I always write from an authentic place, whether that’s from my personal experience or my views on what’s going on around me and ‘Bad Bad Bitch’ isn’t any different.
The song recently attracted a lot of attention on TikTok. How did it feel seeing the song going viral?
Twinnie: It’s been amazing to see it getting so much attention, my nieces are now more famous than me lol. To be honest that was a huge factor in releasing the song at this time and I’m so excited for it to come out.
If listeners could take anything away from this song, what would you like it to be?
Twinnie: It’s a fun track that has humour, It’s my take on what all relationships experience at some point the good and bad side of your partner.
What advice would you offer to someone who is looking to pursue a career within the music industry?
Twinnie: Don’t feel discouraged by the no’s, you’re going to get a lot of those unfortunately but that one yes can change everything. I also offer support via I KNOW A WOMAN – iknowawomanofficial.com so please do reach out to us if you’re in need of support, guidance, or advice.
Finally, is there a message that you would like to share with the readers of Fierce & Fabulous Revolution?
Twinnie: Just to say thank you to anyone who has supported my music. It really does mean the world, oh and make sure you pre-save ‘Bad Bad Bitch’ haha.
