No stranger to the Good Vibes Festival stage, Michelle Lee, better known as Froya, is an indie and art-pop artist whose music style is all about bending and experimenting with different genres. She first delved into music was when she was 7 years old – learning to play the piano and being classically trained till discovering that songwriting and music production was what she really wanted to pursue. After graduating with a music degree, Michelle then started her career as a full-time composer for TV/Radio commercials. Fast forward to today, we have Froya whose always exploring and expanding, trying not to classify herself into a certain genre.
FEMALE: Who are your biggest musical influence?
Froya: Imogen heap, Zero 7, Emiliana Torrini, Portishead, Hooverphonic, Coldplay. I feel like they’ve shaped the core of my songwriting style in general. Of course later on I’ve discovered a lot more unique artists that have broadened my musical palette.
F: What do you think about when you’re performing?
F: Get into my zone, connect with the music and wall off any unnecessary thoughts. Stage fright occurs almost every time but If I shift my thoughts onto focusing on the groove, music and emotions behind the song, I’ll be fine.
F: Who are you excited to see at Good Vibes Festival this year?
F: Apart from catching all my local artists friends set this year, Lorde is of course on the top of my list. Alt-J is a special one for me because I saw them at Laneway Singapore once and they were incredible! Can’t wait to catch them live again!
