I recently included the track, All The Things I Would Do, by Allie Lune in a round-up review and playlist of songs with pop punk elements. She’s got a really fresh sound and is well worth you time, so make sure you check the track out at the end of this interview if you haven’t already!

You recently released a track titled All The Things I Would Do, which we reviewed. What can you tell us about the song, and where can it be purchased?

All The Things I Would Do is a song that means a lot to me. I wrote it when I was very much in the honeymoon stage of my relationship and the whole writing process was really sweet and enjoyable. It’s available on all streaming platforms!

Has the pandemic hindered your work much?

It definitely has, especially when it came to recording. However, now that everything is slowly going back to normal I’m definitely feeling more inspired and it’s much easier to get things done.

What is the writing and recording process like for you?

My writing process varies with different songs, but typically I have a list of different ideas or phrases that inspire me. From there, I’ll map out the general topic of the song and after deciding the key and the chords, I’ll work on the melody and the lyrics. When recording I work closely with a producer who helps me turn my ideas into sounds.

Do you plan to release any more singles in the near future?

Yes! I have more music coming out in the next couple of months!

Have you started writing for an EP or an album?

I haven’t started planning an EP or album, but I have definitely written enough songs for a possible future EP.

What/who influences you most as an artist? What have you been listening to recently?

My influences are quite varied. I take a lot of inspiration from the Beatles and George Harrison, but I’m also very influenced by Spanish indie pop bands such as Cariño or La La Love You. I am also very inspired by books and poetry, nature, and stars. At the moment I’m listening to a lot of Natalia Lafourcade, Karavana and Isaac Gracie.

Where are you based? What is the music scene like in your part of the world? Are you influenced by your surroundings?

I’m based in the UK and Spain. As I’ve mentioned, I am heavily inspired by the indie pop scene in Spain and, having grown up there, Spanish culture plays a very important role in my life.

Do you have any tour dates lined up?

I don’t have any tour dates at the moment, I’m focusing on improving my live performance skills as much as possible but I’d love to do a tour in the future!

What can people expect from one of your shows and why should people come and see you perform live?

For me, what’s most important with live performances is that everyone has a good time and enjoys themselves. I think that’s what people should expect from seeing me live in the future; having a lot of fun!

Any last words for the fans?

Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far! I’m so happy to be making music and it’s always super exciting to know that people like what I make!
