Paris Love-Child talks about Brass Brand Bitches and collaborating with Skepta

Paris Love-Child is the latest female artist making moves on the London music scene. After filming an enticing video for Brass Bad Bitches this summer, she’s recently released  new track, MMW11. We catch up with Paris and talk about her traditional upbringing, musical journey so far, and what her upcoming album is all about.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself, and your creative background?

I am a singer/songwriter turned rapper and I have always been doing music.

My first show was at the age of 3.

How has your upbringing influenced your ideas?

I am very old-school and traditional like my grandmother whom raised me.

Which prominent artists or moments in history remain still influence you now?

Michael Jackson, his death and the conditions around it, stuck with me until today.

How would you describe your music to someone that’s never heard it before?

Bluesy, Bassy and bad ass.

Can you tell us about your musical journey so far, and how you’ve evolved your sound and style to what it is right now? How do you hope your music will evolve?

I used to produce myself alongside real musicians, really talented ones. The music wasn’t perfect, but it was all our own. Now I get sent beats and lots of music to listen to, which is really nice. I am super flattered. It just isn’t the same as a real band.


What inspired the lyrics, production and more recently the visuals for Brass Band Bitches?

Lyrics are old, over 5 years old. Production was sent and the visuals were inspired by “Belly” – a sick movie from the 90’s.

What motivates you to create new music, more specifically your newest release MMW11?

Missing home, but knowing that you need to be away from all you know sometimes, to change the way you think. And as I say in the track “needing a mantra to elude bad energy”.

All of your releases so far have a spontaneous feel about them, what can we expect of your upcoming album?

More spontaneity

What was the best part about creating the album, for you?

Finishing it. Getting whatever I was feeling at that time out, then moving on to a new project as feelings are never ending.

What advice would you give yourself two years ago?

Simplify.

Who would you like to collaborate with in the future?

Skepta

Any last words…

Everything is as it should be. Let go and enjoy the ride.
