No Premonition

No Premonition are a hot Cornish pop act with real star potential. Jenny and Michelle have already worked with the top names in the business including supporting top boy band Westlife at a sell out gig. So let's hear more from the girls from Cornwall who hope to be selling out concerts of their own in the very near future.

 

When did you know that music was something that you wanted to pursue?

Well to be cliched, we've always known it. We've both been involved with music in one way or another all our lives. We learnt the piano from an early age and also Michelle plays the flute and Jenny plays the bass guitar. When we met at school, we started singing together and ran our own dance class when we were 14/15. When we stopped doing that, we gigged together around
Cornwall in hotels, pubs, charity gigs etc. So I guess we've always had the performing/singing bug and wouldn't be happy doing anything else.

How would you best describe yourselves and your music?

The songs on our album are all pop songs but each song is really different to the other so it's hard to pin point exactly what type of music we do. We were really open minded with how we wanted the album to sound so there's some pop/r&b, pop/rock and a few ballads. There is hopefully something for everybody. You'll have to check out our album for yourselves to really know the answer to this question!


What tracks of yours should we be looking out for?

Our favourites are Get Ya, Blown it and Day After Yesterday. Oh and Devious and Shaking on Solid ground are really good as well. We're really happy with all of them, but those are the standout tracks we would say. But please judge for yourselves!

How hard has it been to get where you are today?

Well we don't know how you'd define where we are now but wherever it is, we've worked hard. But then it would be a bit wrong to call most of it working, as since the beginning we've just been doing everything because it's what we enjoy! One thing we would say though is that lots of promising things can be put to you but not always materialize. When this happens you've literally just gotta accept it and carry on and not dwell on it. We have been together for seven years and we've been lucky enough to have many amazing opportunities already, and we'll continue to do what we do for many more years to come, so however hard we have to work, so be it!

What sacrifices have you had to make?

Not sure if you would really call these things sacrifices, but we've always had to juggle education with singing. We made our album whilst in college and then Jenny went to University so it was difficult to concentrate fully on education. Michelle works part time in her job so that she can devote as much time as possible to recording and gigging, and Jenny is currently doing a masters degree in
Reading. So she spends as much time as she can to come back down to Cornwall to sing.

When was your first gig?

Our first gig was when we were about 14 and we performed as part of BBC music live in the middle of
Plymouth city centre. It was quite a long time ago but we remember being really nervous because it was quite a big crowd and we had lots of dancers to fit on quite a small stage. It went really well though!

What has been the highlight of your musical careers so far?

There are two stand out gigs for us and they are when we supported Westlife this year and also when we supported Lucie Silvas for
Falmouth week last year. Westlife was a real pinch yourself moment for us as we performed at Pendennis Castle in front of 6,500 people! We also really enjoyed the Lucie Silvas gig we did last year because we knew the people that organised the event so it was a really lovely atmosphere. Also there was a big party afterwards!

What are your ambitions for the coming year?

We're currently in the process of writing a new album with producers Gary Williams and Chris Morris and we're really excited about it! It's sounding a bit different from our other tracks, but it's still catchy pop music. So we just want to get on with these new tracks, and also to carry on with mission No Premonition!

Where can we see you girls perform in the near future?

At the moment, with recording these new tracks, and Jenny doing a masters degree in
Reading, we haven't had the time to sort out when we're gigging next, but as soon as we do, we'll post up the dates on our website!

How do we keep up to date on all your latest news?
