Where are you writing this: London
Each soul is hand picked – to potentially inspire others to move in ways that imprint on the hearts of those around them. It’s all the little things inside of a song that speak to you and sweet Francesca Tamellini has a gift to share with the world.
Home is where your story begins, please tell us a little about yours…
My childhood was split between Italy and Scotland, so in my case I very much have two places I call home. The first is a lazy village, scattered with vineyards and olive trees in northern Italy where most of my family still live, and the other, the one where I spent most of my later childhood, is a beautiful Scottish town surrounded by icy beaches, famous for golf and K.T. Tunstall.
How did music find you…
From a young age I was pushed into music. I use the word pushed because it was indeed my family who encouraged me to pursue a musical education as they knew it was important for me to develop a skill, and having seen how dreadful I was at team sports or other forms of hobbies, they decided the music would be the least painful route for me to take. I used to curse my mother for making me practice, but now, as I’m sure is the same with many people, I thank her from the bottom of my heart.
What is the song writing process like for you…
I either write a song in a day or I don’t write one at all. I can’t plan them and I can’t think about it too much. All my songs have been born in a matter of hours, on uneventful days, where I just lose myself at my piano.
