Artist Interview: “After The Summer Falls Nigel Soul Remix” by Rose Spearman

Q: I absolutely love the groove that was put into the Nigel Soul Remix of After The Summer Falls. What compelled you to make the remix of an already great song?

SPEARMAN: I love what Nigel Lowis does with songs! He listened to the original and said he had a great idea for a remix and so he gave his own special flavor to the song.

Q: How was your experience working with producer Nigel Lowis?

SPEARMAN: A very kind person and just a no-nonsense kind of guy:-) Looking forward to doing another tune with him!!

Q: With you coming from a very diverse background, who were some of your musical influences growing up?

SPEARMAN: Yes true! So there was lots of jazz music when I was growing up from my father’s side and lot’s of classical music from my mom’s side…
When I heard Massive Attack the first time I was very inspired to do my own thing with music.. And of course, singers like Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Lauryn Hill but also Florence & The Machine, James Blake are people I like to listen to.

Q: Was there a pivotal moment in your life when you decided to follow your path as a musician?

SPEARMAN: So when I was six years old I started to play the violin and studied for many years …but one day I saw this band playing with this strong-looking woman singing the blues that is the moment I wanted to become a singer:-)

Q: What is the music scene like in the Netherlands?

SPEARMAN: It is a very friendly and supportive atmosphere towards art..however, it’s a small country, and hard to succeed as an artist. You really need to broaden your horizon if you want to make it with the kind of music I make..

Q: What would you like to say to your fans out there?

SPEARMAN: I can’t wait to meet you!! I can’t wait to play live again and feel your energy! Hope to see you soon…
