New Voices 2019 - Mella Faye Q&A

Mella Faye

“What are some of your important musical influences?”

Growing up my favourite song, on repeat, was Sweet Thing from Astral Weeks by
Van Morrison. These days I’m inspired by Sylvan Esso, Bon Ivor, James Blake,
Roisin Murphy, La Force, Vulfpeck...

“What are you working on at the moment?

I’m just beginning a project called Persephone, an adaptation of a Greek Myth.
The project has multiple strands to explore over the next couple of years,
including composition, a live gig theatre performance, recording an album and
hopefully with the help of New Voices, lots of exciting new collaborations and
opportunities to present the music in new venues

“What are you looking forward to about New Voices?”

It’s a fantastic opportunity to work with new people, find new avenues for
sharing and presenting work, and to have real support, both in professional and
creative development
