For our ninth Reversal Of The Muse episode, Laura is joined by fantastic London-based singer-songwriter and producer Shura. After releasing singles ‘2Shy’, ‘Touch’ and ‘What’s It Gonna Be?’ to a glowing reception, July 2016 brought Shura’s debut album ‘Nothing’s Real’. For the second part of their conversation, Laura and Shura are joined by previous Reversal Of The Muse guest and friend, Marika Hackman.

Laura recorded this podcast just after ’Nothing’s Real’ was released, and Shura explains she made a conscious effort to construct her album cohesively, with the aspiration to create records in the way she consumes them: listening in their entirety from start to finish. However, Laura and Shura share the same difficulty when they’re in the midst of making records and travelling, as they find themselves detached from listening to other music which inspires them. As Marika joins the conversation, the trio discuss how Marika’s early presentation in the media emphasises a problem many female musicians encounter: journalists can focus on everything but the great music they produce.
