How would you best describe Queen Millz to someone who doesn’t yet know you?
The Queen of switching things up, with her charisma, swagger, and an endless amount of energy on stage, she wows a crowd by singing, rapping and dancing she knows how to put on a show.
What does music mean to you?
Music is my way to express how I feel or have felt before, but also I love the feeling I get when something sounds good. If my music can make me get that feeling then that’s all that matters.
What drew you to music as a form of art?
I’ve always grown up around music, my mum and dad liked drum and bass, reggae, R&B, hip hop, grime and all different types of urban music. I also used to be quite bad at school and my dad would make me write lyrics everytime I got in trouble. Then I just got into it and put all my feelings down.
What inspires you in life?
I’m inspired by my parents. I’m inspired by love and dedication. They’ve always believed in me and now I want to give them the world.
How do you add colour to your music?
I always think some soulful harmonies and a dirty baseline always helps.
How does London inspire you?
London inspires me to connect more with people. Being from Leicester, much smaller city and everyone seems to be against each other a lot of the time, every time I come to London I’m made to feel welcome and I always meet amazing people that could help me excel in my career.
Why is art more important now than ever?
I think it’s more important more because the youth now are growing with fewer morals throughout the years. I think we can send a message through our music. We have the power.
How would you like to be remembered as an artist?
A Queen. I want to go down as a legend.
