Interview: Ex-Hollyoaks actress turned country-pop perfection Twinnie Lee Moore


Ex-Hollyoaks actress Twinnie Lee Moore is already making a name for herself as a singer-songwriter, after adding the impressive notches to her belt of performing backing vocals for Pharrell Williams, and Robin Thicke.

Now, she’s ready to take on the world with her own country-pop perfection, and if her first single ‘Cool’ which reached Number 2 in the iTunes country charts is anything to go by, we’re going to be hearing a lot more of Twinnie.

Question!! What's that note?! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Hi Twinnie! For those who havenโ€™t heard of you, how would you describe your music?

It has a country-pop vibe with an essence of folk. Honest lyrics and storytelling-like songs.

Some people might recognise you from playing Porshe McQueen in Hollyoaks, was it difficult juggling acting and songwriting?

I wouldn’t say difficult as there’s a lot of waiting around in TV and film, but I would say I have more inspiration and feel the most creative at night, so I spent quite a lot of time being tired! Haha.

What advice would you give to people looking to make a career out of songwriting?

Write about what you know, make it relatable but say it in a way no ones ever said it before, that’s what I try and do.

Never stop listening to music, I’m constantly getting inspiration from classical to rap.

Your music has been compared to The Lumineers, Mumford and Sons, The Shires and Taylor Swift – If you had to be locked in a room with one of them for 24 hours who would it be and why?

Probably Taylor I think she’s brilliant! And I would wanna ask the truth about Kim and Kanye!

Your new single โ€˜Homeโ€™ is about losing love and breaking up with someone, what advice can you give someone struggling with that?

No one can make you feel better at the time, ride the wave because although it’s hard to believe TIME is such a healer!! Plus there’s plenty more fish in the sea, just keep swimming to find them!

Your E.P is out on July 29th which weโ€™re super excited about, can you describe each track on the E.P using only 1 word?

Honest

Youโ€™ve been flitting around to radio shows recently to perform, do you have any upcoming performances we can catch you at?

Pixie Lott’s music night on the September 4th at Ellaguro and I’m doing a session with BBC Radio 2 presenter Bob Harris’ Under The Apple Tree!

What are you most looking forward to in the next year?

Getting the album out, doing festivals and touring. I’ve literally done this as a self release and it’s gone so well so I’m just excited to keep on going as I really do love it and I’m so content!
