"On first listen, it sounds quite sinister, but there is some empowerment in the song, with letting go of things that are holding you back."

Connie Talbot grew up in a small town near Birmingham and had a natural understanding that music should make a difference. In 2007, 6-year-old Connie blew everyone away with her version of Over the Rainbow on Britain’s Got Talent.

She is now a 22-year-old adult and has become an impressive artist over the past two years. She is finally ready to exhibit her talent one more time with “Dark Lullaby” gem called Easier Pretending You’re Dead.

Connie explains: “This song is a metaphor of how we often deal with a breakup. I wanted to bring humour and drama to an uncomfortable issue. I think it’s almost a dark lullaby. On first listen, it sounds quite sinister, but there is some empowerment in the song, with letting go of things that are holding you back. I think this message really came from how I feel I have grown personally over these last few years, letting go of things that I have felt tied up in, and also musically changing. These are songs I have wanted to write forever.”

Her dark-pop single Easier Pretending You’re Dead is an inspiring anthem to help people overcome difficult breakups. It gives off strong self-empowerment vibrations and encourages individuals to remain strong at such times.

Connie was only 6 when she released her first record, Over the Rainbow. The project was a great success in the United Kingdom and exploded in Southeast Asia, making it the youngest artist ever to have such achievements.

Over the years, Connie has truly enhanced her talents as a songwriter and musician, creating a unique sound. She is an independent artist who’s looking forward to 2023 as the year she’ll release her 4-track EP which will set her apart and show off her talent.

According to Connie Talbot, this project gave her the chance to be more candid and try out a different style of music that she wouldn’t have known existed when she was 6. She says: “I think I have finally found my own sound”.
