Hello,This is ” Baby Steps” A song by ( Me) -Demi McMahon ft. Fabulous Queens🌈.
This song is about people taking small steps to get to where they want to be in life. The video is based on also Drag Queens & LGBT speaking out, as I support them and know of people who have had abuse because of who they love or who they are,and it shouldn’t be like this at any day and age but ESPECIALLY in this day and age.so this is about people talking and speaking out!.

Untold poet

Would love to be considered for the February issue. BBC Introducing Essex ‘SOUND OF 2021’ Artist. Untold Poet is a UK, Essex-born Spoken word/Rap Artist. Untold Poet’s matured beats and fine-tuned flows are arguably the most exciting sound to bridge the gap between RnB, rap and poetic rhythm. With subtle influences of Drake, Kano, The Streets and Bon Iver, the energy is laced with forward-thinking wit and unexpected, honest emotion. Crowned ‘Sound of 2021’ by BBC Introducing Essex and tipped for big things in the coming year, Untold Poet’s resilience through 2020 has shown, and been noticed, proving he has… Read more »

With What Eyes

Hey! We are With What Eyes. Check out our latest single Snake. The track is about digital pervasiveness and the vacuity of a virtual life. It sensitively explores the very human concern about our increasing dependence upon a screen. Pensive verses burst into a euphoric chorus in an uplifting and empowering mood shift. With a chorus as catchy as it is angsty its a great song to vent and sing along to. Hope you enjoy! x

I entered OMUK in 2018. Since then I’ve release an EP and my latest single which came out in 2020. Due to covid I haven’t been able to record since then but I’d love to be considered to be shared ☺️
My song ‘Won’t Say Sorry’ is about being annoyed at a friend.
My song ‘Honest Conflict’ is about rumours.
My song ‘Found’ is about falling in love.
My song ‘Since You Left’ (most recent) is about not having the closure needed.
I hope you like the songs ☺️
