Five Minutes With

GNGR

 

At SCC we are always on the lookout for new talent to keep an eye on, and GNGR is a singer/songwriter who is firmly on our watch list. Her music is very RnB influenced and she describes her sound as sexy, atmospheric and mysterious. We caught up with her to talk about her inspirations and how she writes and records her music.

 

LISTEN TO MISS ME BY GNGR BELOW

 

Hey GNGR! We’d love to know who or what is your biggest influence?

 

I’m really inspired by songs that are incredibly honest or about things that maybe not everyone would sing about. Summer Walker has a song called Girls Need Love and the reason why I love it so much, as well as Summer as an artist, is because she sings about very real subjects that not many people would sing about, or at least not in the incredibly raw and honest way that she does. I love music like that myself and I write like that as an artist. I always like to tell the scenario exactly how it happened.

What’s your creative process like when writing and recording your music?

 

Generally when going to the studio I may have a reference track or it could be me just describing a track or a feeling that inspires the production. Once the track has a little structure I will start recording some melodies with a few lyrics, then go through those melodies and see what I like the most before starting to progress on the lyrics fully. Obviously it doesn’t happen that way every time – sometimes the lyrics and melody are already there and we build the production around that.

 

There is a lot of talking that goes on in sessions too – I’m generally working with a producer and a songwriter that I co-write with, so if there is a specific moment or topic that I want to write about we will talk a bit about the subject just so we all know what emotions I want to come across in the song.

You have a pretty distinctive style, how important is your image to your music?

 

For me I think image and music should go hand in hand – as an artist you are essentially a brand and so I think every representation of that is very important.

 

Who would be your dream artist to collaborate with?

 

I would love to collaborate with Usher on a track! I’ve been a fan of him from a very young age and I feel that his vocals are still so on point. I think with my style of music it would be a great collab.

What’s your current most played song?

 

I don’t really have a most played song at the moment but I’m really enjoying J Warner’s EP – Figure 8. That’s a project that I am playing repetitively at the moment.

 

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

 

‘You can’t please everyone.’ When I was back at college Terry Ellis from En Vouge came in and gave a seminar and this was the piece of advice that she gave. It’s really simple but the way in which she articulated it has always stuck with me. I think it’s a very vital piece of advice for anyone in music industry.

What’s coming next for GNGR?

 

Obviously certain things have been delayed for now with lockdown going on, but I’m hoping to have some new content out very soon. I also want to get back performing as I haven’t done that in a while and performing is the part I love the most!
