Gillian Heidi's new single is out now, called 'High', a which reflects on a relationship soured by failed promises and drugs. Her style and songwriting is mature beyond her age of only 16.
In her recent interview with us, Gillian told us how storytelling is so important to her approach to songwriting:
"It’s a cliché, but my main influence was definitely Taylor Swift. I grew up with her and idolized her songwriting and values. She taught me how to be authentic and tell a story. Other amazing artists that continue to influence me are Ella Mai, Finneas and Amy Winehouse." "If I feel down about school or friends, I’ll take an emotion and directly channel it into a song. It’s all based on something that happened to me. I’ve always dealt with stress and emotional times through songwriting. "
