"Skye Ember Making Waves with Her Latest Single 'Thunder' - An Exclusive Interview

1. Your latest track is 'Thunder'. Can you share with us the background of its creation and did any unusual things happen during its creation?

Funny you should ask that. It started life as being a metaphor song about a woman represented by a storm, but I wanted it extra supercharged. I was watching TV and saw someone had a cocktail. Then I realised, thunder laced with gin – that would have more punch! And so, the chorus and full concept of the song was born.

2. If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?

I would love to open for Lily Allen. I think we have a lot in common; quirky, down to earth and write catchy, honest, eclectic music. I think it would be a lot of fun and her fans would probably appreciate my set.

3. What are you doing to ensure you continue to grow and develop as an artist?

I am constantly pushing myself and putting myself out there, one day at a time. I would love to get my music into a film or a TV show, and this means playing the music sync lottery – i.e. writing and recording until you get something that suits what they are looking for. I’m always trying new little tricks with my music, making tweaks to my processes and finding inspiration from others. That’s just how my brain works – it is always in development mode!
