“Writing and creating my EP Growing Pains has been a journey that has been so good for my soul."
28 August 2023

In a soul-stirring musical odyssey, telented singer-songwriter Connie Talbot bares her heart and soul through her latest release, the captivating 4-track EP titled Growing Pains.

Connie Talbot‘s Growing Pains captures the raw emotions and diverse feelings that encompass the journey through heartache, vital moments, growth, and eventual restoration.

This self-penned EP is crafted with both honesty and artistry, effortlessly blending Talbot‘s innate melodic instincts with the project’s production, characterised by the inclusion of organic sound elements which reflect the simple realities of dissolving love.

Each track is a chapter in her personal story, blending her profound insights and experiences with music that speaks to the universal human condition.

In Growing Pains, her introspective exploration of maturation explores the unending challenges and growth that life presents, creating a melodic backdrop that captures the complexity of the journey.

When asked about what inspired her for the project, Connie Talbot opens up and shares her thoughts:

“Writing and creating my EP Growing Pains has been a journey that has been so good for my soul. I really wanted to create something from scratch independently. Working with some incredible writers has been a dream. Emily, Ant, Alfie, Cameron have quite literally been my therapists. Putting thoughts into lyrics and into songs has been a form of therapy that I can revisit whenever I want. I have always loved that music can make you feel something and for me music has always been a constant in my life that I can rely on. If one of these songs can help someone, I will be happy. The overall message that I would love people to take from this EP is that it’s okay to learn lessons from experience, it’s okay to feel those emotions intensely, lean into them and grow from them. That’s why we call them growing pains.”

Easier Pretending You’re Dead, a soulful and poignant anthem, encapsulates the conscious decision to transcend past romantic entanglements by relegating them to the past tense of existence. Connie’s evocative vocals infuse the track with emotional depth, expressing the transformative power of letting go.

The emotionally charged Broken Heart candidly acknowledges the raw ache of heartbreak while acknowledging its transient nature. A poignant reminder that even the deepest wounds heal over time, this track captures the essence of emotional resilience and growth.

The EP culminates with the haunting strains of Roses, an elegantly captivating closing track that harmoniously binds the entire project together.

Connie Talbot‘s musical journey kicked off when she was just 6 years old. She drew everyone’s attention with her incredible performance of “Over the Rainbow” on the British Got Talent.

At the age of 22, she presents Growing Pains, a moving journey that encourages listeners to explore their own emotions and find solace in the healing power of pop music.
