Australian country music starlet, Missy Lancaster is set to release her latest single, Forget on August 25th 2017. Last year, I had the opportunity to interview her about her then-recent signing with Sony Music. Catch up on some of the best bits with this little flashback.
After doing the hard yards as an independent artist, Australian country music singer Missy Lancaster has recently been signed to Sony Music. On the eve of re-releasing her second EP, Missy, she spoke about the recording process, her love of country music and being Keith Urban’s biggest fan.
Congratulations on the upcoming release of your second EP, Missy. It was originally released earlier this year independently but now that you’re signed to Sony, it will be re-released tomorrow (8th July 2016). Are you nervous about that?
Yeah. I suppose it’s just being put up on a much bigger platform, but it’s great, you know, that something I did independent[ly] is good enough to be released through Sony.
How does it compare to your previous release, ‘Til I Figure It Out’?
I think this EP just really suits my personality. It just sums me up really well. It really shows where I’m at in my life. I suppose [with] my first EP, I didn’t really know where I was at, what kind of music I wanted to make whereas this EP, I knew the style of music I wanted to make. I had a really clear direction of what I really wanted my songs to be about.
