Catalan-Irish singer-songwriter Núria Graham returns with the stunningly mesmerizing slow-tempo gem At Last, out now via Primavera Sound Labels / Universal Music. At Last, comes with a suitably reflective and haunting video.
What was the first album you bought?
It must have been when I was a teenager, maybe it was John Mayer’s Continuum, my favorite record around that time.
Who are some of your biggest musical inspirations and why?
There are so many it’s hard to say. There are some particular records that have changed my life for some reason, not only because of the music but because they make sense to me, for example Bjork’s Debut, Charles Mingus’ Ah- Um, John Martyn’s Solid Air, Lou Reed’s and John Cale’s songs for drella, Chris Cohen’s As If Apart, Blake Mills’ Mutable Set…and a large etcetera
What are some non-musical inspirations that motivate your music?
Life in general, people, my friends, relationships. I also love writing (without music) and sometimes painting too, it’s good for my brain
Tell us about your new single AT LAST
It’s one of the first songs that I wrote when I was at the studio about two years ago but for some reason, It didn’t get in the album. I guess it wasn’t its time yet. I am just beginning to understand its meaning and what it talks about.
What have you got lined up for 2021?
My plan is to record new music. Also to do some gigs. But I can’t wait to experiment in the studio and try new things.
