Muti-talented, singer-songwriter Abigail Blake hasn’t taken many breaks since her latest release. Party Tricks was released in 2016 and had a music video with a group of voluntaries showcasing their party tricks. Abigail’s out there ideas are what could have lead to her style of music, twinkle-step. The mix of pop, electronic music and harp makes for an interesting and iconic sound for the young artist. With all her music being created and produced single-handedly, it’s clear she is a very busy person.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I’m always working on new music. At the moment I’ve got a few songs on the go, all at the same early stages of production. It’s hard to pick one and stick with it because I get so many ideas all at once.
Q: How did the last single go?
A: It went ok thanks – super happy with the song but I’ve now got a 9-5 job as money is an issue for me at the moment, so I didn’t have as much time to promote it!
Q: So with a 9-5, how do you plan on getting more music done?
A: I plan to really knuckle down with the next release and make time to show the world.
Q: When’s the next release?
A: Who knows? Hopefully by the end of the month!
Q: How did getting volunteers for the last video work out?
A: Terrible. This is another reason I work alone – people just aren’t reliable! Huge love for everyone that did get involved on the day though.
Q: Would it be something you’d consider again?
A: Maybe when I earn myself a bigger fan base and people would be more willing to get involved!
Q: What’s it like producing and working on everything single handed?
A: It’s impossible! At the end of the day, everything needs prioritising – music production, performance practicing, gigging, promoting, filming videos. It’s all so important, but there are only so many hours in the day. I try and strike a balance… but is it better to do one thing really well, or everything average? I feel like I’m working at average at the moment, which doesn’t represent how passionate and hard working I am.
Q: Are you going to be including any other instruments in the future?
A: Recently, I’ve started sitting at the piano more often. I’d love to make more of that. The studio I work in has a few vintage electronic organ type things… would love to get some interesting sounds from them!
