Interview with Karmilla

1 – When did you first get into music? What or who Inspired you?
I had some guitar lessons when I was 11 and learnt a few of my favourite song and was hooked from that point onwards!

2 – Who did you grow up listening to, and does that impact on what you create now?

I grew up listening to a variety of stuff, coming from a family with diverse music interests.  From the British Indie music scene right through to Eva Cassidy and Jazz!! Oasis were a big part of my diet,  As well as Stereophonics and early Coldplay.  I always reach out to different genres of music though, as long as the roots are strong, I’ll listen to it, probably get obsessed with it and love it!

3 – How long have you been playing/writing?

When I was a kid I wrote songs, they were terrible!!! but they helped me express whatever it was I was thinking about at the time, which was cool. After co-writing in bands through collage and stuff I began to seriously write my own tunes. Some of them even made it into the album, I’m always writing.

4 – How often do you play live (include details and links for any upcoming gigs)?

I play on a weekly basis. Sometimes solo, sometime semi acoustic, more often now with the band.
Semi acoustic set @ Readipop Festival
Full band set @ Mau Mau Bar, Portabello rd, London. Saturday the 28th August 2016.

5 – What has been your favourite moment in music?

Recording an album. I recorded with my best mates and worked with a great producer in a lovely studio in the middle of the sticks. It’s an important part of the song writing process to record a song.  And I was very fortunate to have this Wonderfull experience. It wasn’t all great though, it tests you in ways you can’t imagine!
