This marks a monumental occasion. Back when the podcast started, we had a shortlist of individuals we knew we wanted to talk to. Indie/pop musician Shura was one of those individuals and how very fitting that her first appearance on the podcast is to discuss the next step within her career. The symbol of that step is her sophomore album, forevher - an album full of intimately emotive songs that still make you want to dance with your head in the sky. On this episode of the podcast, Ken Grand-Pierre chats with Shura about her writing process, the "dreaded sophomore album", and how being in love has proven to be a positive influence towards her creativity.

"It’s cheesy but just in the right way."
