“After self-producing one of the four songs on my last EP, I became obsessed with producing my own music. I’m really excited to put out The Sweetest Thing Is Love, which I really have put my heart into making. Capturing the spirit of the song took some work – I’m not a pianist so it took some work to learn to play the song I’d written! I was keen to bring together a laid back, electronic pop vibe with real-world piano, acoustic and electric guitar. “
