Learn About Kate's Journey with "Wallflower"

I recently had the opportunity to interview Miu Kate Harding exclusively to learn five random facts about herself and the story behind her single "Wallflower." Check out my interview with Kate Harding:

Loryn: If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

Kate: Sometimes, the comments on social media. Reading them, you wonder if perhaps you have to do things in a certain way to please other people. But that isn't what being an artist is about, and you'll never please everybody. There's a David Bowie quote that I think I might use as a compass which is "If you feel safe in the area you're working in, you're not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you're capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don't feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you're just about in the right place to do something exciting."

Loryn:  How would you describe your music in one word?

Kate: Kissable 

Loryn: What concert would you love to go to in the future?

Kate: Green Day is headlining at the Isle of Wight Festival. I know, it's not Country, but Dookie was the soundtrack to my bus ride to college and back, so I'd just love to see them live and pretend I'm 17 years old again. 

Loryn: What is the story behind your song, Wallflower?

Kate: I had just dropped off a 'then' boyfriend at the airport. We'd been together a while. I thought it was going great. I mean, he'd driven me to Italy to meet his family. By this point, I thought he was going to say 'those 3 words' before he got out of the car ahead of his long business trip abroad for work. He didn't. So I wrote the song on my drive home to London. I was young, and I was just trying to get my head around that frustration. 

Loryn: What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?

Kate: I lived alone with my daughter for a few years. Living alone with my baby is really where I found my voice and performing. I started a daytime singing group for mums called 'MAMA ROCKS.' We'd meet once a week at the soft play centre, learn new songs together, and even get requests to perform at local events. Some really happy memories of all the ladies singing together and the little ones playing.
