This Sunday sees the second ‘Belles and Gals’ showcase live event, an event highlighting some of the very best talent on the UK country scene! Tickets here – http://www.wegottickets.com/event/457748
The showcase takes place at the legendary Water Rats venue in London on Sunday evening and for the next four days we’ll be taking an in depth look at each of the four artists.
Today we start with Essex based Roisin O’Hagan, an artist whose star has been very much on the rise in recent years. Roisin first caught our eye back at the start of 2018, which saw the start of a series of features throughout the year, highlighting her hit songs such as ‘Miss You Like June’ and ‘Drive’.
We caught up for quick and fun chat with Roisin this week!
And which artists have influenced you in your career, and who are you listening to right now?!
My two songwriting heroes are Adam Duritz (Counting Crows) and Taylor Swift for sure! What I’m listening to jumps around a lot, but right now I’m listening to the new Ward Thomas, The 1975 and Nina Nesbitt albums, I recently became obsessed with Tenille Townes’ music and I have Tom Speight’s ‘Old Flame’ on repeat.
You’re hosting a fantasy dinner party. You can invite three famous people (alive or dead) – who do you invite?
Adam Duritz and Taylor Swift, duh! I’d love to meet them and learn all their secrets. Thirdly, Tom Hanks, because he’s just really cool and I think he’d be really interesting at a dinner party.
