Your Future Mixtape caught up with
‘Love For A Day’ singer Eddie Prové
Eddie Prové Interview
YFM: Hi Eddie! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself for those who don’t know you?
Eddie: Hi, My names Eddie Prové & I’m a 24 year old singer/songwriter from Reading.
YFM: How would you describe your music for someone who has never listened before?
Eddie: I’ve recently been describing it as “Soulful Pop”. I listened to a lot of Motown records as a kid. My mum used to work for them so it was always being played in the house. Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder & Otis Redding are particular artist i remember well and that have influenced me greatly.
YFM: How long have you been making music for?
Eddie: I’ve been writing for about two/three years now, so started relatively recently. Ive always been around music though & have always sung. It’s definitely been hugely beneficial surrounding myself with music and listening to a lot of different styles. I think it’s very important when wanting to write to get an understanding of songs.
YFM: You’ve recently released your E.P. ‘Silent Love’ (big fan!) What’s the story behind the E.P.?
Eddie: Thank you. The story for ‘Silent Love’ is a pretty simple one. It’s about key moments in my life during the time of writing. I often write about true events that have happened to me. It makes it easy to express your emotions into a song when they’re real. Writing this EP was almost like therapy, speaking about things that I couldn’t to others.
YFM: Can we see you on tour anytime soon?
Eddie: I’m currently writing my second EP, so the next confirmed date is: Wed 28th Sep – BBC Introducing @ The Purple Turtle, Reading. I’m headlining this BBC introducing night in my hometown, going to be an amazing gig!
YFM: Who are you listening to at the moment?
Eddie: Literally “at the moment”, I’m replying to this interview & listening to “Gallant”. His new album is really good. If you haven’t already you need to check him out. “Anderson Paak” also recently released a new album called “Malibu” which i have listened too probably too many times. And as always a healthy dose of “James Blake”
