Jess Glynne will be performing a Live open-air concert at Wincanton Racecourse on 1st July, as part of The Jockey Club Live series this summer. We caught up with her for a quick chat:
Is the new album finally delivered, how was the recording process?
New album is still in the process of being made. Trying not to rush anything as I want it all to be perfect.
Must have been hard having to spend all that time in LA 😉 , what did you get up to between recording sessions?
LA was all work no play. I had a lot of fun working with new people and making new music.
How did you approach it this time round, is there more pressure for album no.2?
I have approached this record just as I approached the first, I think the pressure is just the same. I think if it ever eased off then that would mean I don’t care.
Are you able to tell us when we can expect to hear new music in the charts?
No idea yet, you will have to wait and see. Hopefully not too long.
When you were at school, were you into music, what gave you the bug to want to be a singer and performer?
My parents always introduced me to new music from a young age and I was just obsessed with vocals and performing since I can remember. I think I always had it in me but it wasn’t till I left school that I realised it could become a reality.
Were you into sports at school as this summer certainly sees you in some interesting sporting grounds?
I used to love sports, I was in most of the teams at school and loved athletics. My dad always encouraged that.
You’ve mentioned before you tried horse riding when you were younger, what was it about horses that you liked?
I started riding when I was quite young, maybe about seven or eight with one of my really good friends and I just loved it ever since. Horses were always one of my favourite animals.
