Hi BÉE Tell us about your new single ‘Mr Right’
If you know the feeling of not having met your ‘Mr Perfect’ yet, and your friends frequently talk about being happily in love, then I’m pretty sure that you’ll like my newest single ‘Mr Right’.
I didn’t write this song because I’m not happy being single, because I actually am, but I love the idea of possibly bumping into my ‘Mr Right’ and immediately recognizing him. I certainly hope that he’ll recognize me too :)
When would be your perfect time to meet Mr Right?
I certainly believe in fate, so I’m pretty sure that the perfect time has already been picked for me. I believe that I will meet him as soon as I’m ‘ready’. I’m more than happy to be on my own, and I don’t mind waiting either, so for me that means there’s no perfect time. It’s all about meeting the right person.
How would you describe your musical style?
In short I’d describe my musical style as pop, but with a vocal ‘R&B’ twist, but I’ve also enjoyed singing striped back songs which carry deep emotional weight so effectively.
When did you first know that you wanted to follow a musical path?
Well, this may sound like something that a lot of people that want to follow a musical path would say, but since I can remember I’ve always wanted to become a singer. I usually tell people that I could sing before I could talk. And my parents agree with that. I taught myself how to sing and I was always writing stories and songs. Since my dad’s a professional songwriter/producer, he’d give me tips on how to improve myself. Since my early teens my dad has recorded my voice in his studio and gave me my first studio experiences. Those experiences made me even more sure of the path that I wanted to follow.
What is your song writing process?
Songwriting is magical and to me it evolves very organically. I don’t particularly follow any specific musical theory, I just follow my intuition. And it’s different with every song that I write.
When can we expect an album?
I don’t have an exact timeline, but I think I’ll release an EP before summer 2020 and then an album will follow after that
In the current UK lockdown it would be great to hear about your Insta Live performances
Well, maybe I’ll surprise you somewhere soon…
Anything else you’d like to say to Music News readers?
