  • How long did it take to write the song ‘Debut’

“Probably a month from conception to finish. I tend to sing ideas into the recorder on my phone then after i’ve recorded a few of them

i review what i have and try to make a coherent song out of them.

  • What inspired you to write this particular  song

“It was an article i saw online about artists trying to make it in the music industry and taking a long time to get a foot in the door.

It sparked the idea”.
