Klaudia is the kinda girl you wanna have as your BFF. She’s fun, fierce and crazy talented. Not only is she a singer-songwriter, she’s been professionally trained on the cello and piano since the age of 8 and has a degree in Music where she spent her time merging classical music with underground dance beats. Cool huh? We caught up with the babe in question for a quick catch up...

I'm a Lithuanian born, English raised music Artist. My genre is afro-beat influenced pop. Positive vibes, weightlifting & dogs are my thing.
How did you end up where you are in life right now?
I think being persistent in working towards your goals is key. I’m stubborn by nature, so even if I get knocked down 9 times, I will keep pushing and succeed on the 10th. My musical journey started from the age of 8 with classical cello and piano. Since then, I always knew that this is what I want my job to be. A music career is a gradual and hard process, but the satisfaction and results is always worth it in the long run.
What’s been your proudest moment to date?
I’ve had the chance to work with some amazing artists this year , including British rapper and DJ Ironik who features on my next upcoming single. It’s crazy to think I used to listen to his music at school with my friends. Sharing tunes via bluetooth on our cool Sony Ericsson phones haha.
Another recent proud moment for me, is signing a track to Armada music this week! It’s a dance record label that's released some incredible music so it’s such a privilege.
Who or what would you cite as your biggest inspiration?
I’ve always had very head strong female role models in my family. They work hard and get everything by themselves. So growing up around that has definitely shaped my work ethic. My songwriting is inspired by real life experiences, feels, other people's stories and personalities.
What’s on your playlist right now?
Loads of NAO, PARTY NEXT DOOR, Mura Masa and TLC (have you heard their new single?!) and that annoyingly catchy French Montana ft. Swae Lee - Unforgettable track!
Describe your style in three words…
Glam meets edge
What’s one thing you cannot live without?
A creative output. I think even if I wasn’t a musician, I’d still be creating something like visuals or blogs. I’ve got excess amount of energy that needs to be channeled into creativity. Plus it's a time out card from the daily grind.
Tell us a random fact about yourself…
I filmed as an extra in an upcoming Jason Mewes film [from Jay and silent Bob] earlier this year. It’s called ‘Madness in the Method’ and premiers in September!
If you were a mood ring, what colour would you be?
So I used to wear one as a kid and it used to always be black or purple. I’ve just looked that up, and it means stressed and deeply relaxed. That probably describes me well, no middle ground - always extra in emotions. That, or the mood ring was broken..
What are you most looking forward to in 2017?
I’ve got some exciting releases ahead, including my upcoming single ‘Love on Mine’ which features Ironik. Here’s an exclusive preview clip of it especially for you!
Klaudia’s current single ‘Hiding Out’ is available to watch here.
