Lauren Phillips Chats With TMI About Her New Single “Honest Tonight”
What do you hope your supporters will think of the new music? & What do you hope they’ll get from hearing your new songs?
I hope supporters are inspired and motivated to create something that they can call their own. With the new song “Honest. Tonight” its a love song, hopefully, the song brings them happiness.
Can you tell us the backstory of this new single? Is it from a real experience?
Totally, I love to tell people about this song. Honest, Tonight is about my partner Adriane, she was in London and New Zealand for 1 month for work and visiting her family, she’s a kiwi :). The first week away was easy to handle, nice to have the house to myself, be on my own schedule, but when week 2 rolled in, I was over being away from each other haha. That’s when “Honest, Tonight” was created. We now have an ongoing joke in the house that when Adriane leaves I create a great love song about her.
What does this single mean to you?
Development as an artist and control of my sound.
Can you spill any details on what your supporters can look forward to from you the rest of the year?!?
My next song “Two Cokes” is a banger, more electronic, so if thats your style, stay tune!
What’s it feel like to be releasing your own original music?
Amazing, I will make sure to keep releasing till forever and always.
What’s been your reaction to the love for the single from your supporters?
Its been pretty overwhelming, im getting request to play at weddings and for people to have it as their walk up song. I love that its universal for other people to take as their own.
