Inspired #0012 - Harlea


Harlea talks to us about the goddess that is Beyonce, and about pushing the boundaries to go beyond the norm. 

Who are you top three musical inspirations and why

Amy Winehouse - She was so classic and unique. Her sound so raw and her lyrics so real! 

Ed Sheeran - To come from busking at the tube to global music domination.. Wow

Beyonce - She is a god, I swear! I love more alternative music usually, but when it comes to Beyonce!! How can you not?

Is there a certain film that inspires you and why? 

Billy Elliot. Because it shows that if you push boundaries, go beyond the norm and are determined to make your dreams a reality, it can happen. 

What city do you find the most inspiring and why? 

London. I love London, it is so diverse in so many ways. You have so many people, from so many backgrounds and cultures living in this one place
Who is the most inspiring person to you and why? 

Mothers in general, but especially ones with careers! They are all badass!! They do the hardest job in the world, raising a tiny human(s), and they build companies, run countries, I mean the list is endless! Oh yeah, and Beyonce!

How would you like to inspire people?

I want to put it out there for women to show we can have a voice in a male heavy genre (or any aspect of life).
