Chatting To Maisie Peters

At the age of only eighteen Maisie Peters has been storming the music industry at such a young age. Only just today she released her new single Details which will be followed by her EP, Dressed To Nice For A Jacket which will be available to listen from the 2nd November. 

She is now on supporting Tom Walker on his UK and European tour and here's what went down when she came in to the studios... it was so much fun to just talk Nandos and boys and a little bit of music in between!!

Are you enjoying being on tour with Tom Walker?

I am having the best time. So, so good. And he's the nicest guy ever. He's so lovely.

It was only last week released a new single In My Head and what is the backstory of that song? And I want to know all about what inspired you to write it.

Okay. So I'll try and do this quickly. It’s kind of weird because I started it the day after I wrote Worst Of You. I wrote the first verse and then I couldn’t think of anything else for it. So I just left it and then like six months later I wrote the second verse when I was babysitting somebody just on my laptop, and then like last month we wrote the chorus. So like totally different points in my life. I mean obviously it has like inspiration, like in my romantic life or whatever, but I feel like more importantly and especially like recently I was kind of feel like this is a meaning that's come to me recently is like the whole song is really about like putting on a front and trying to see like better than you are. I feel like that's so relatable with me and my friends.

It's not long until your EP is released on November 2nd. Can you tell us a little bit more about it?

So I'm like super excited for it to come out. It's got six songs and they've all been written by me and my friends over the past year I would say. So some of them, where finished like last month and some of them I wrote like over a year ago, but I think they all kind of reflect the year that has just happened. So I'm excited to show people these were producers and writers, I've written them because they're amazing. But yeah, it just feels like it was a really easy choice for me to pick all the songs have going on it and they feel like a really good, fresh kind of new page for me and my music.

And you've recently performed at a few festivals this year, so Neighbourhood in Manchester last week and you performed at Live At Leeds. What were the highlights of being at those festivals?

Oh, they're all so different. That's what is amazing. So at Live At Leeds was at church, like proper massive church and then Neighbourhood last week was in this like grungy venue, which I was totally not set up for. Like it was cool bands and then there was just me with my girl pop, but they were all so sick I because they were all with such different people and this is like my first time in a lot of these cities. So it's amazing to like have your first time doing playing my music in a new city. I mean, I love Manchester. I've been twice. It's just so cool to be able to go to different places because of music.

You're obviously a one to watch because you've been on BBC Introducing and Radio X. What are your plans for the future, whether that's the near future or far away?

I mean we're going to have to go for world domination for far away. But for the near future I just want to keep touring I'd love to go to America and to Asia. Also, like keep coming student radio like I actually love student press. It's my new favourite thing because I feel like I’m a student so it is like me and all my friends just having a chat. Um, keep trying to meet people that listen to my music and just getting to know. Plus, releasing more music because I've written loads of songs this summer that aren’t on the EP but I really want to release them so I might do like a sneaky EP like quite early next year as well. 

If you want to know what else Maisie has been upto with her life, music and what is coming soon... Be sure you give their interview a listen on MixCloud!!

But, finally, a MASSIVE thank you to Maisie and her team for coming in to the studio, hanging out with us and doing a live session too. Good luck with the future you will do amazing!
