Country Music in the United Kingdom is shifting so much so that rifts in time and space are being brought to the eyes of many. Many new artists are emerging, and the talent isn’t fading in even the slightest of instances. This evening showcased why Nashville is coming closer to our shores with every last lyric sung.
Narn is a musician who may not be known to many, but her performance and stage presence leads you to feel like she’s been doing it for decades. The stage and the limelight were all hers, and she brought her own Nashville story to an audience who believed in every last chord. She put forward new material that encapsulated positivity in both feedback and on a personal level. “People are already telling me which ones their favourites are, and I’m really really excited about it, and I can’t wait to get to the studio.”
When Narn plucked that very first string Country Music to her was as familiar as the days in the week. Growing up listening to influential artists like Carrie Underwood and Jim Reeves her passion quickly formed making Country Music an important part of her everyday life. She respects the artists that have been at the forefront of the Genre for many years, but she sees the current as a time to bring in new elements that makes stand apart from what’s already been done.
She doesn’t let stereotypes prevent her enjoyment of all things Country especially with events as the annual C2C festival which hits our shores each year. : “I loved every second of it. But this year there was a million million more people. It was awesome!”
The current standing of the genre hasn’t changed her outlook on what the country scene stands for with it being able to connect with people and their everyday lives. She understands that we all go through difficult times and such songs as ‘Dream Big’ are relatable as we all have a dream we’ll fight to the world’s end for. Just as the journey ahead for Narn is one that she wouldn’t change as her goals are known. : “I wouldn’t change what I do for anything.”
Her upcoming album is one where she refuses to stop and look back. Looking up and moving onward is what she believes is Narn through and through as this next release isn’t one that she’s going to let pessimism ruin. : “I’ve been really working hard on this album to make it the best it can be.”
When the roads become Icy Narn isn’t one to sit back and let it be problematic as she’s no stranger to life’s winter. At sixteen, she learned that there’s always going to be treachery and that some people will exist to hold malicious intentions. : “In the music industry there’s always going to be two sides to things. So there’s going to be good people who are going to support you… But then, there’s going to be people who are going to try and knock you down and get in your way and lie about you.” To those pursuing the music dream, Narn is defiant that you shouldn’t let anyone stop you: “Be who you want to be. Don’t care what anyone else thinks about you.”
The year may still be in its early stages however this hasn’t even come close to halting the dream chasing of this individual. The Summer is Winters arch enemy, and Narn isn’t backtracking but setting her sights on her upcoming album launch along with the many tour dates that she’ll be playing. Not one mention of the past? Well apart from her EP launch of ‘Nashville Story’ back in October, which got to the number 5 spot on the Itunes UK Country Music Charts. : “Then it got to number 5 in the Itunes Country charts, and I was like freaking out.”
Narn is an artist that is making a name for herself in the Country Music industry. Positivity goes a long way, and her determination to fight and never hold back is pushing her closer to the larger stages and audiences that await. This evening we heard just that. Her upcoming album is one that must be heard to be believed or seen to be amazed.
