Meet the fabulous Mary Noyes! Talented singer and songwriter. We fell in love with her when she graced our Popular Cover “ Ones to Watch for 2018”! We can’t stop playing her new record “Porn Star,” which has an important message about love and relationships, and how (especially our generation) needs to change their perspective. She is performing at the Billboard Hot 100 festival. We caught up with the Maty in LA and asked her some of our exclusive questions.
What was your inspiration for your song “Porn Star”?
It’s no secret that our generation is being taught to love the wrong way. Because of this I’ve had a lot of negative experiences with men. I wanted to do what I could to inspire people to change the way they love and change their perspective on what love means.
What inspires you to be an artist and write your own songs?
It’s all I know how to do, I can’t get over something and move on unless I write a song about it. It’s just in my blood to be an artist. Everything inspires me, most of my songs are written off my own experiences and how I see the world.
If you could work with any artist – who would it be?
I think Marc Ronson would be cool to work with, also frank ocean and Lana del Rey would be fun to write with.
What city was your favorite to perform in? Why?
I think Glasgow Scotland! I have never seen a crowd so hype and so excited to listen to music. I love that they never took that experience for granted.
