Kadija Kamara has a new EP, Nothing Left To Lose, out now, which delves into the soulful streets of the city, unearthing the harsh realities.

Kadija spoke with The Fountain about the message behind the records, as well as her own festival she ran in London last October.

TF: Exciting stuff with a new EP release, you must be ecstatic?

Yes I am thank you, it’s been a long time coming.

TF: And are you following this with a full promo tour?

I would love to. Just confirming a few dates but would love to play up and across the UK and maybe abroad.

TF: Where did your EP name originate from?

The name of the EP is based on the title track Nothing Left To Lose. It describes the struggles and stories of people around the city. It’s not about anyone in particular, but I feel anyone can understand the struggle and appreciate the positive messages within the lyrics.

TF: And what has been the response in Scotland so far?

I’ve received some great support in Scotland via blogs and radio plays. It’s great that my music can reach across the UK and Internationally.

TF: Which has been your favourite gig to date?

There are so many great gigs, which all have great significance to me for one reason or another. However, I guess one of the most recent is my own ‘LADY’ festival, which I ran last October in London. It was a great achievement for me being able organise such a successful event.
