It’s time to share our Artist of the Month for August where we highlight the best new talent we heard last month.
August was a month full of fierce competition and incredible releases in the industry but for the Pop Playlister team there was one standout artist.
Vicky T brought us her debut single ‘Lie’ on the 14th August, a soulful R&B single that instantly caught our attention.
The London based singer-songwriter is talented beyond her years, an emotive songstress and vivid storyteller, Vicky T is one of the most exciting R&B stars emerging on to the scene.
We caught up with the young talent to find out a little more about her artist debut and what’s next for the rising star.
You first started entering Music at just 15 with your Instagram covers, at the time did you think it would kick start a career or were they just for fun?
“Many people didn’t know I could actually sing so posting my first cover for me was terrifying because I was a very shy girl growing up.
I honestly had no idea what would come out of posting covers- I did it because I love singing, I love music and I wanted and still want to inspire people my age to post and share with the world what they love to do.
Most importantly an amazing person came into my life who pushed me to post consistently which then resulted into being able to work in a studio and live my dream.”
What do you think your 15 year old self would say if she could see you now having released your first single ‘Lie’?
“My 15 year old self wouldn’t believe what my 17 year old self is doing right now. Working with an incredible producer who’s produced for incredible artists blows my mind.
Having a manager who’s practically my big brother is just a dream so I am so grateful and thankful. My hard work and dedication has definitely played a big part in getting to where I am now, we still have a long way to go!”
What do you want people to think/feel when they listen to your music?
‘I want people to feel inspired just how I did/do when I listened to other artists music. I want people to know they’re not alone when they hear a song they can relate to and I want people to dream big. Anyone can achieve if you believe.’
Bursting at the seams with talent and potential, there is so much more to come from this young artist.
