An Interview With...A Freelance Musician - Michaela Wylde


What advice would you offer to somebody aspiring to be a singer and about to study at university?

Studying music at university won’t make you a performer, but the experiences, the modules you pick and the opportunities you make the most of will shape you as a performer and will help you further down the line. 

Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years?

If I am still performing as my job in 5 years then I would be over the moon, I love what I do and when you love your job you will never feel like you work.

If you could play on the same line-up as anybody, who would it be?

Newton Faulkner is my idol, I would absolutely love the perform on the same line up as him!

What are your plans for 2016? What are you working on at the moment?

I am working on new material and have some small festivals lined up for 2016. I am hoping to get into the studio to record my next album towards the end of the year.
