Learn As I Listen 17/09/22

17/09/22 I moved into my new home over a month ago now. I live with three of my dearest mates; two from Lyric Deep Ltd. The musical atmosphere has got me inspired, in both my own creativities but also in devouring others’. I want to use this newsletter to talk about some music I’ve been […]

Sobriety Is Complex 17/09/22

17/09/22 Not drinking is hard. Maybe for some it don’t bother so much. But for people like me, where it can consume them, it is bloody hard. I’ve been sober now over two and a half years.  I started drinking early in adolescence, and it was my main vice to escape issues I was too […]

Stage-a-Gwanin’ 17/07/2022

17/07/22 Eek, I am finally getting some opportunities to perform on stage! After spending so much time building your art up, it can feel like a big ball of energy that you want to send spinning into the world. Each rehearsal makes the fire burn brighter. Each question from mates asking ‘When? Where?’ chucks another […]

Don’t Die For Da Dates & Grades 17/06/22

17/06/22 I wrapped up my second year at university in May. I handed in my final essay a couple weeks earlier than it was due, one-part because it was finished and I didn’t want to tempt tinkering, one-part because once it was given in I could let me hair down and get glad-ragged without worrying […]

Ode To My People 17/05/2022

17/05/2022 I’ve recorded the EP! FINALLY! My seven piece band and I spent the 16th and 17th of April in Satellite Studios, Enfield, securing our months of hard work into a fixed project that we can share with the world. I feel so proud, and so excited.  After going to an Orii Jam in Hackney […]

Oracle Girl Baaaby 17/04/22

17/04/22 http://www.oraclegirl.org Ooo La-La, it’s that time of the year again!  Oracle Girl’s Silent Immersion Retreat. In April and October of every year, Oracle Girl does a remote retreat that – and this is no exaggeration – will change ya muthafuckin life. In 2014 I was introduced to the OG. I had been in and […]

Fri-Ends Are Where It Starts 17/03/22

17/03/22 I couldn’t move on Sunday. I laid in bed being nursed by Mama with guts somersaulting, legs tearing from the hip to the knee to the toes and my skin more tender than a wing. I rolled about like a product of Greggs and staggered to the loo like I was in a ward. […]

Dress Code: No (Victim)Hoods 17/02/22

17/02/22 I have been a victim. Of all sorts. I have suffered, and I do have trauma to tell. I have past instances that I recall sometimes and only in retrospect understand that they led to other traumas occurring. As a woman, I understand I have a different place in society than men. As a […]

Feed Your Head 17/01/22

17/01/22 I’m skint! Just like most people at the moment. Christmas drains our pockets, rent then comes pinching swiftly after along with dinner and all the other bits and bobs we need to survive – or think we need to survive. I was doing alright; being conservative with my student maintenance loan, going for the […]
