Our Artist of the Month for August- The talented Vicky T

female singer, pop, Pop Music, R&B, Review, Singer-Songwriter, Soul, Uncategorized

It’s time to share our Artist of the Month for August where we highlight the best new talent we heard last month.

August was a month full of fierce competition and incredible releases in the industry but for the Pop Playlister team there was one standout artist.

Vicky T brought us her debut single ‘Lie’ on the 14th August, a soulful R&B single that instantly caught our attention.

The London based singer-songwriter is talented beyond her years, an emotive songstress and vivid storyteller, Vicky T is one of the most exciting R&B stars emerging on to the scene.

We caught up with the young talent to find out a little more about her artist debut and what’s next for the rising star.

You first started entering Music at just 15 with your Instagram covers, at the time did you think it would kick start a career or were they just for fun?

“Many people didn’t know I could actually sing so posting my first cover for me was terrifying because I was a very shy girl growing up.

I honestly had no idea what would come out of posting covers- I did it because I love singing, I love music and I wanted and still want to inspire people my age to post and share with the world what they love to do.

Most importantly an amazing person came into my life who pushed me to post consistently which then resulted into being able to work in a studio and live my dream.”

What do you think your 15 year old self would say if she could see you now having released your first single ‘Lie’?

“My 15 year old self wouldn’t believe what my 17 year old self is doing right now. Working with an incredible producer who’s produced for incredible artists blows my mind.

Having a manager who’s practically my big brother is just a dream so I am so grateful and thankful. My hard work and dedication has definitely played a big part in getting to where I am now, we still have a long way to go!”

What do you want people to think/feel when they listen to your music?

‘I want people to feel inspired just how I did/do when I listened to other artists music. I want people to know they’re not alone when they hear a song they can relate to and I want people to dream big. Anyone can achieve if you believe.’

Bursting at the seams with talent and potential, there is so much more to come from this young artist.

‘I wrote ‘Lie’ at the age of 16, it was actually one of the first songs I wrote… Life inspired me to write this song, as some days we just want things to go a bit different and just take a break.

Full of wonder- Lohrd Snohw is our artist of the month

Electronic, female singer, indie, News, pop, Pop Music, Review

The Pop Playlister team are excited to debut our latest feature, ‘Artist of the Month’, a space for us to share the very best talents we’ve discovered and put them on your radar. 

Our first Artist of the Month, and the best thing we’ve heard in July, is Lohrd Snohw. Now that name may sound familiar to our readers (and no we’re not talking Game Of Thrones), the talented Lohrd Snohw has made it onto more than one of our Fresh Music Friday playlists and has turned the Pop Playlister team into die hard fans. 

I was lucky enough to have a catch up with Lohrd Snohw (aka Cazzie) ahead of her latest release ‘Dogs’. Cazzie is a UK singer-songwriter whose childhood has taken her from the big smoke, all the way to rural midlands and beyond. Music has always formed an important part of Cazzie’s life, from writing her very first songs at just 11 to performing in local band scenes as a teenager, the 21 Year Old singer has a wealth of musical experience.

 Yet it is Cazzie’s recent releases that are the truest expression of her diverse artistry. Cazzie rightfully refuses to place herself and her music in a genre, an artist who draws inspiration and influence from far and wide; it is hard to box Lohrd Snohw in.

She describeS her music as deliberate, intentional and with purpose. Music with meaning, and a style that is truly authentic and raw. The words Art-Pop and Electro can be thrown around when discussing Lohrd Snohw’s artistry, but the best way to understand her genius is to listen to her music yourself. 

‘Dogs’ is Lohrd Snohw’s most recent release, an ethereal piece featuring Cazzie’s dreamy vocals and trippy electro inspired instrumental. Cazzie is full of originality and innovation, an artist not afraid to push the boundaries of sound and genre making her music truly new, fresh and exciting. It is artists like Lohrd Snohw that show most promise in what is undeniably an oversaturated musical market, Cazzie is a true stand out talent in our eyes. 

The rising star has an EP in the works, and plenty more musical genius to share with the world. The future is bright for Lohrd Snohw so watch this space.
