“I’m becoming more and more honest and open with my feelings in my writing.”
Making the shift from sensational covers to creating original music of her own, Kara Marni’s musical journey is only just beginning. With her latest her single “Opposite” just dropping today, PAUSE sat down with the budding artist to talk about influences, style & what’s next.
Do you remember the first time you played live? What was it like?
I’ve been playing live ever since I was about 4 screaming my brains out over everyone’s conversation till’ I was forced to be quiet. Makes a change to have a more willing and engaged audience now!
Who has been the biggest influence on your music?
It’s really difficult to pick one as I have been inspired hugely by a few strong females. Oleta Adams, Sade and Aretha, to more recently Amy and Lauryn Hill, all of their voices and songs resonated with me in different ways, at different times.
Who would your dream collaboration be with?
There a loads of people I would love to collaborate with but at the minute Anderson .Paak is at the top of my list! He’s incredible!
