Behind the music: Interview with Ffion Rebecca

‘Music has always been my happy pill.’

Describe your music style in no more than 5 words: Jazzy, poppy, unique, relatable and real.

How old are you and where are you from? 17 and originally from Wales but moved to Cambridge 4-5 years ago.

Which instruments do you play? I don’t play any at the moment but am trying to learn guitar.

Who else is involved in your music? I have a wonderfully talented guitarist called Ryan Webb who is also co-writer too on of my singles coming out around Christmas time.

Why did you become involved in music? Music has always been my happy pill. I love any kind of music and am very fortunate to have the vocal ability to achieve most of them. Now I am older, music is my escape (cliché I know but it’s true) it’s a way to vent all kinds of emotion into something beautiful.

When did you first become involved in music? I have been singing ever since I can remember but I have only professionally been singing for 3 years and writing for 2.

What has music enabled you to do? Like I said before music is my way of expressing myself. Music is a more beautiful way of talking. It allows you to connect with people from all parts of the globe, relating to them all and sharing that connection through the song lyrics.

What was the first concert/gig that you were involved in and the first one you saw? I first performed in front for all my family and friends (100 people) at my grandfathers birthday singing ‘I dreamed a dream’ and then a very out of tune version of Happy Birthday. The first band I ever saw in concert was JLS with my mum back in what I think was 2010-11.

Who are your inspirations? My inspirations towards my music are Adele, Corrine Bailey Rae and Melody Gardott. In life, definitely my mother.

What is the point of music? Music is a way of communication, telling stories or simply just to share a feeling. The point is it brings people together from all walks of life and connects them in some way. All songs, whether they are rock or jazz, all have the same story line or meaning from love songs to hate songs. I truly can’t imagine a world without music neither would I want to.

Do you have any other creative talents and if so do they influence your music in any way? I am currently studying fashion at a college in Cambridge and would like to go on to further study in couture fashion. Fashion plays a big part in my music life as it helps with my outfit design, my event design and so on.
