CC Clarke talks "A Little More" about her new single

Tell us about the new single, "A Little More". How did this come about?

I have been a singer-songwriter for almost 10 years now and it felt like the perfect time and perfect song to put out. I wrote it in 2017 with an amazing team and knew the message would resonate so well with my fans.

You are signed to Tileyard - how does it feel being label mates with Sigala and Ella Eyre and have they given you any advice?

It’s exciting to have the same team as such successful artists! Sigala has been kind enough to give me pointers with a couple of my tracks and I am excited to get to work on these and hopefully even collaborate with him one day!

Who would you say are your biggest influences in music?

I have old school influences such as Alicia Keys and Christina Aquilera and MJ! But at the moment I am loving Khalid, Billie Eilish and YEBBA. The vocals and messages in their songs inspire me to keep my soulful songs fresh.

People may know you for being one of the UK's most well known beauty guru's so how did music come about?

I have always been around the music industry and writing with big names for the past 10 years. When I left theatre college I knew that I wanted to be a music artist and being a lover of makeup I earned money working for brands online. When I started to put my dogs onto my makeup blog I received overwhelming support and didn’t stop with the music behind the scenes until it was released and out for the world to finally hear.

Which celebs do you think create iconic make-up and beauty looks?

Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez and Kylie Jenner. They really do lead the trends and they have always endlessly inspired me.

You are going on tour later this month - what can fans expect?

Ah, I’m so excited for this!!! My music is about the messages so that I hope they can feel inspired, empowered and hopefully can have just as much fun as me!

Who would be your dream artist to collaborate with?

I would love to collaborate with Stormzy. His passion is so inspiring.

Where do you see yourself in the next few years?

I see myself touring with my album out and having a few fashion makeup lines out too!!
