Christmas is almost here, and our weekly gift of new music is here!
We are loving the debut single from BIMM Birmingham’s Reece Daniels – this is ‘Why’.
What was your inspiration when you began writing the track?
I wasn’t really thinking about inspiration. I was hurt and just sat at my piano and let it pour out of me.
Are there any artists that inspire you when writing?
Frank Ocean, Mahalia, Prince. These artists are all so different but so amazing at what they do!
What is key to your sound and how do you make your music stand out?
My sound is my soul. My voice is raw and unfiltered – it’s just me singing. I also haven’t heard many people with a similar tone to me. My music stands out because of me. In my future projects and tracks, my personality will show though and I hope that’s what will make my music stand out.
How does your songwriting process work?
I do one of two things, I either sit at my piano, create some chords, and start writing. Or I write over a beat.
Describe your sound in 3 words
New wave R&B.
How has studying at BIMM helped you develop as an artist?
It’s enabled me to meet so many musicians.
It’s allowed me access to explore and learn.
It’s allowed me to work on my craft and plan my music.
What’s next for you?
I have my next single releasing around Valentine’s day 2020. It’s an anti-valentines song.
