“Break the mould, change the rhythm. Don’t just settle for what you’re given. We are already strong. Why don’t we all be the change that we’ve been waiting on…”
Painted With the Same Brush is the latest single from Indira May, the fourth since her April 2018 debut, Strange, which introduced audiences to her strong, female take on life, love and loss.
Painted With the Same brush was written with musical partners Harvs Le Toad and Hutch to support Philips women’s empowerment campaign #leadyourway which brings together stories, advice and inspiration from female artists, musicians and business leaders.
“This song definitely comes from the heart. It’s me speaking honestly about what I feel. I believe that this is pivotal moment in time. We need to encourage women of any age, any ethnicity, and background to believe in themselves, speak out and make change happen.”
Indira’s second release, the haunting Bad Habit picked up support from Jazz FM, BBC local radio and many online stations. The third and final release of her EP project in July 2018, the hypnotic Red Gold and Sapphire , moved the story on again.
Indira has been living in Brighton for the past three years, surrounding herself with musicians. She’s not naturally a city girl though, having grown up in the Cotswold countryside surrounded by fields and sheep. The family home was filled with the music of Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis, Etta James, Herbie Hancock, Marvin Gaye, Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie and The Rolling Stones. She started writing her own songs at a very young age, inspired not only by the many professional musician friends who came to stay, but also by the artists she spent hours absorbing on YouTube, such as Lauryn Hill, Corinne Bailey Rae, James Blake and Erykah Badu.
Indira finished 2018 with a packed gig at Islington’s Old Queen’s Head, promoted by Hot Vox and an equally full industry showcase at the Aviary Bar. She is currently recording material for her first, self-financed album, and collaborating with Harvs, Hutch and other Hip Hop/Funk artists from the UK and Sweden. After a stunning live performance of new song ‘B Side’ on the BBC London Robert Elms show (@ appx 3.16) she is gigging at Ronnie Scotts on Tuesday 5th March. Later in 2019 she will be featured in a new book on UK female jazz, blues and soul artists by acclaimed author Sammy Stein.
