Sarah Hughes


I saw a dog wearing a hoody once and I thought that was pretty cool. Music is pretty important to me because I do it even if nobody cares and I think that's kinda ace.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

I can communicate with more than words with music. Instead of telling someone a story I can make them FEEL a story. Some things are difficult to talk about but with music I am free. Music has been my upbringing and a friend in the quiet times.

What is your music dream?

I don't have a music dream. I just want the right people to hear my songs and understand. Feel something. That is all I have ever wanted. For me the writing of the song is the most important part. Whatever happens next is up to the listener.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

throw the tories into a bin.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

"Say Hello, wave Goodbye" by Soft was a favourite of my Mothers

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

TOO many to list to be honest and I come from playlist culture so my taste is varied. Here goes. Smashing Pumpkins, and you will know us by the trail of Dead, Daniel Johnston, Bonobo, The Cinematic Orchestra, The National, The Pixies, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Deftones, Patrick Wolfe, Kate Bush, Bjork, Metronomy, LCD Soundsystem and many many more

What inspires you to make music?

I write autobiographically and quite candidly. My lyrics tend to be the things I cannot easily or readily talk about. Most of my songs are a reflection of some difficulty or obstacle I have had to navigate, or a ponder on a life event. I write music as a form of therapy.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

That isn't up to me. The song gets written and the audience find the message.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I feel less ordinary.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?


What do you think of Drooble?

Looks good, I like the concept. I am new to it, so we shall see.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

the pressure to play covers rather than original material

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I do. I not only attend local gigs, I host local gigs and provide performing opportunities for my peers. I listen and share their music.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

I don't like this question, because it puts the importance on the numbers which for ME isn't the most important thing about music. I would write songs even if nobody listened. Don't get caught up in the figures. Write because it's good for your soul. Passion and authenticity is contagious. Start with that. Don't measure your worth, it's bad for you.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
