Hi Michy, please tell us a little about you?

I’m Michy Tree from Berkshire, United Kingdom. I started playing music when I was 12 and got my first instrument the ukulele and then moved on to the guitar. I have since started to produce my own music and now I am releasing it!

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Crazy, loyal and stressed

We’re sure you have been asked this million times but how did you get in the industry?

Well I’ve always had a love for music, but I think my college was very good at teaching us about the industry and how to get into it. So I’d say that was the start.

Describe your sound in 3 words?

Honest, boppy, bangers

Who influenced you and why did you choose to make music?

I have so many influences but the main two would be the 1975 and Paramore

Do you play any instrument?

I can play the ukulele and guitar both badly

Do you ever get nervous?

All the time but if you’re not nervous it’s not exciting

Tell us about your new single, “Floating House?”

Floating House is a indie alternative track and it’s out on the 26th of February so go have a listen!

What’s the story behind the song?

Floating House was written when I was 18 in my first year of university when I moved to London by myself. It’s about my whole experience and how lonely it felt.

Did you had plans/concerts planned and cancelled because of COVID? If so have you done any online concerts or interaction with your fans?

I didn’t have many plans as I was still recording and producing my music at home. I have been doing live sessions and I do have a few gig lined up including Not Your Babe festival which is online from the 5th-7th of March

Which project is still on your bucket list?

Releasing an E.P with a release gig is definitely the next goal!

What is fun and rewarding about what you do? And what’s not?

The rewarding part is when people tell me they relate to my music, that means more than anything. It’s also fun to be able to get your emotions out into a physical thing like a song and share it.

The not so fun thing is not being able to achieve your ideal vision, for example I could go and make a video for the song due to covid so hopefully floating house can have a lil video in the future!

What’s next for Michy Tree in 2021?

A few gigs, and an E.P hopefully but you never know what’s gunna happen

What is you favorite song? And why?

That’s such a hard question! One of my favourite songs is Where Is My Mind by Pixies. Lyrically beautiful and instrumentally insane no other song like it!

Any loves other than music?

I love fashion, photography, makeup

If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?

Freddie Mercury because he was an absolute legend and I think we’d get along

Best advice ever given?

“don’t be a silver Ford, be a green Ferrari” one of my old teachers was just telling us to be ourselves and stand out

A day in my life is sleeping, go for a walk, university work, watching drag race and sleeping

What do you think of Social Media?
